    Couldn’t be more pleased !

    Since this is only my second purchase of a smartphone case, I’m not going to claim expert status in the somewhat overwhelming universe of phone accessories. But I can honestly state that this Tech 21 Evo Check Case is precisely what I had in mind for my iPhone 8. I was occasionally dropping my phone because of one of the exclusive Apple features that makes this phone special ! The proprietary glass case is actually so smooth that it tends to slide away if I’m not careful. After putting on the new Tech 21 case, my phone now feels very secure in my hand. This case fits the iPhone 8 perfectly in every aspect. It’s so slim that it’s barely noticeable and the color compliments the iPhone very nicely. Affordable protection with the simplicity that I like. I normally post a photo with most reviews but a phone selfie seems kinda strange.

    My First IPhone Purchase

    Swore I'd always use a flip phone! Can't stand the way people abuse their phones - using while talking to people...eating....in public places that request no phones, etc. Well, I chanaged my mind after speaking with a knowledgable Best Buy Phone Service Specialist. My one change has to do with wanting to take good phographs without carrying my camera. Now I can download photos directly to either my computer or printer and proceed to process. While I am not or will not be much of a purchaser of APPS, I am thrilled that I can read my daily New York Times, local paper, etc. when I am out of town. Am having a ball learning to text message....now I write short quick notes and no longer write tomes with email. Am happy to have the Apple IPhone Pro and am having fun exploring it and using it!

    Style and purpose

    I purchased this case for my daughter’s new iPhone. She chose the black phone. This case allows a splash of color while still seeing the phone itself. We choose our phone colors on purpose and it is great when they are not completely covered by the case. The combination of the pink with the black is adorable. The total coverage around the phone provides great bumper protection! It is also a very sleek design so as to minimize bulk or adding to the overall size of the phone. It was a surprise to see her bff show up with the same cover on her new phone! —- completely unplanned! In addition, the price was right too. I recommend this case!

    From the 6 to the 8

    so I was part of the group of folks whose phone was doing the dying dance. My 6 would get to 52% and then shut down. I would turn it back on and then it would only have 10% or less. Finally, I was over it. I marched (well drove) over to my local Best Buy to purchase a new phone. The 8 is a beautiful phone with more storage, smoother transitions in apps, and great battery life. Im not all the way into the whole screen button thing. but my biggest frustration is the requirement for wireless earphones in order to charge. I mean, out of the box you can not listen to the ear buds and charge. I'm sure there are adapters to allow you to do it, but it's taking some adjusting. I won't die. (First world problems). Overall it's a good phone.

    Quality Case

    I really like this case---for a specific reason. Many white iPhone cases become dirty really quickly, and look terrible after a few days. This iPhone case steps it up a notch by having the plastic rim white only inside the case. The outer transparent plastic protects the white color from becoming dirty (unless you take your phone out of the case a lot) and keeps it looking new. You can clean off the outer portion of the case without a problem. From what I've observed in store, the other colors of this style are set up the same way. Quality buy.

    We’ve had this case for over a year and it has kept my tween son’s phone from literally exploding to pieces with the way he handles it. I can’t count the number of times he dropped his phone with this case on, accidentally or purposely, but the phone survived. He’s not getting a replacement phone until he learns to take care of it. He knows that he can’t purposely break it now because he’ll be out of phone until he gets to high school. All of a sudden, the drops became very rare and mostly accidental. Go figure. Kids!!!

    Great case for the money

    My wife loved how this felt in her hand and how it looked on the phone. Our only complaint is that the buttons are a bit hard to push on the sides, hopefully that will get easier as we use the case more. The clear case of the same style seemed to have easier-to-push buttons, but my wife didn't like the look of that case for some reason. We'll see how it protects the phone when it inevitably gets dropped.... up to now, we haven't had the pleasure of testing it's durability! A particularly good deal when it's on sale.

    Got this case the day I got my iPhone 7 on launch day. It was one out of the small selection they had at the time. I like how it has the drop protection and clear glossy finish. I've dropped my phone only a couple times, not onto any concrete but on the hardwood floor and it's protected it well. Only thing I don't like are the lines that it puts on the back of my phone when I take the case off. They quickly go away after wiping them away so it's not a very big deal. I'd definitely recommend this to someone looking for a simple case that isn't going to break easily like a hard snap on case.

    Great grip without the bulk

    I had an otter box which was great for protection but made my phone too thick. I figured since I only dropped that phone once in 4 years I could get something else for my new phone. I feel pretty confident the phone is protected and the best part for me is it's not slippery. The rubberized feel lets me feel more secure and it's pretty! You can see through it. It wraps around to protect the edges but it's slim enough to fit in my bag without extra bulk. I love it. I even splurged on one for a friend for a gift. Obviously I'd recommend it to a friend since I bought it for one.

    Outstanding Case

    As my personal experience with Tech 21 cases like this, they last for a long time. So far so good with this one. I have never experienced a long lasting case. Put it this way. When I purchased the IPhone 6 two years ago, I bought this case. It lasted me for the full life of me keeping the IPhone 6, It never looked bad after many drops and it form fitted my phone through out the life of it. I truly recommend this case if you do not like bulky cases. It looks sleek on phone and it meshes well with the black IPhones. Give it a try.

    This case had a first hand test: it got dislodged from my bike mount at about 20 MPH, hit the spokes of the wheel and struck the pavement. When I picked it up, the corner had slightly come off the phone, the edges had some damage but the phone was in perfect condition. Not a scratch! The only negative on this case is that the bottom section where you have the plug and speakers feels flimsy, but the truth of the matter is that it held and did it’s job on a hard drop!

    I have an Otterbox case for my phone because I drop it all of the time. My wife wanted some protection, but is much more careful with her phone and didn't want anything as substantial as an Otterbox. This cover was recommended by an associate and it is perfect. It provides protection, is designed well and is virtually unnoticeable. She loves it.

    I've used several types and brands of phone cases from the way over priced to the online discounts but the Tech21 has been my absolute favorite case for my iPhone 6 and now iPhone 7. Combined with a glass screen protector (choose your favorite brand) I have had ooops moments when I have dropped my phone and no worries about damage. This case allows you to still slip your phone in and out of your pocket with ease. You can remove the case and put it back on your phone with ease.

    Totally excellent slim case...great protection

    I have wrapped almost all of my iPhones in Tech21 cases in the past, and now my iPhone X is living comfortably in one. The case is very slim, with a nice "grippy", gel-like texture - no extra bulk. Don't let the slimness fool you...it really does provide great protection with a high drop rating. The side buttons are also covered by the case, but it does not impede the functionality - the buttons press nicely. I have no complaints whatsoever.

    Easy to grip, thin, and fits great for IPhone 8

    Purchase 1 month ago. So far it is really easy to grip and thin. Compared to 5 other options at Best Buy Store. Fit and finish was best. Buttons are easy to push for sound and on/off. The only thing that is negative is when I plug in charger, it will sometimes need an extra push to connect. The top wrap around on case can catch the plastic part of charger plug.

    I had to replace the case I had and this was my choice, because I didn't want anything too big and bulky. This case met my desire. It's just slightly thicker than the phone itself. If you're looking for a slim case, this is the one for you! There is no screen protector with this case, but you can easily add one, I didn't find the need.

    Bought a new iPhone, and one of the first things I do is look for a good protective device. This Evo Check case was great looking, with a see-through back, and cradled the phone tightly. Quality product, and while not planning on dropping it any time soon, feel good knowing that should I have an accident my phone has an excellent chance of survival.

    I have never liked the big super protective cases like the lifeproof cases. But I do want some decent protection in a case. This has a slight tacky feel so it won't slide or slip when you're propping it up at an angle. It holds tight to the phone, unlike some early silicon cases which were too soft. It slips in and out of the pocket without excessive bulk of some other cases. Great inexpensive case that fills the bill.

    Not my first Tech21 case and like the others a really good case for your phone. Fits really well and provides a good level of protection. Not bulky like some of the others. I’ve never had a broken screen or phone while in one of these cases. Maybe I take care not to break my phone but I have dropped it!

    I have multiple Tech21 cases for several iPhones. I believe these a re a good choice for a small less bulky case, I believe they provide above average protection for a smaller form factor than most cases. I often have a significantly larger case on my phone manufactured by a competitor but I often revert back to my Tech21 case when I don't need ultimate protection but would like a much better carrying experience with my iPhone 6+
