    Functional, but expensive

    I was looking for a simple protective case for my iPhone 7. This fit the bill, but my options were fairly limited in-store. The case itself feels like a hybrid plastic/silicon. Some of the buttons are a bit rigid and difficult to manage, but I assume these will loosen with time. The hardest part is accessing the mute switch, which sits deep inside the case. Those with larger fingers may have a difficult time. If the case protects my phone as well as it claims, it will be worth the price, but it doesn't seem to offer a ton of protection. As such it seemed a bit pricy for what you get. For $30, you're already almost halfway to a full-on Lifeproof or Otterbox case that will provide a waterproof, shockproof experience. Oh--and the material is not terribly conducive to adhering pop sockets to, so if that's something you're considering, this may not be the best case for you.

    This is my second cover for my phone. I went in looking for the same one I had purchased the first time. They didn’t have it in stock, so I purchased the Evo Check as a second choice. It looked very attractive. I’m happy they didn’t have my original one in stock. I like the Evo Check much better. It is thinner, and looks better then the other. I like that it doesn’t have a flap covering the charge port, as the flap, over time, just hung out in the wind. I also gave it an inadvertent test, dropping it from full height onto a concrete floor. No damage to the phone. My only suggestion would be a little wider aperture for the headphone port. The plug fits through, but the cover on the plug won’t pass through without pulling the cover slightly aside. I solved the problem by purchasing a pair of wireless headphones, and the newer phones have no jack, so the comment is no longer particularly relevant.

    I like this case, I plan on keeping it and would definitely recommend it, however it isn't quite perfect * Looks The case just looks great. With a grey but still clear backing, it looks just perfect with a matte black iPhone 7, looked great on a jet black too (Have not tried it with a gold, silver, or rose gold phone) * Protection Sturdy but flexible, the case has handled some mild drops very well. any scratch buffs out fairly easily. Somewhat protects the screen as it lifts the phone just barely, and especially protects the camera bump while setting it down * The cons This case is a smoothish plastic type material. While that keeps it fairly light (I would not call this a light and thin case on its own, but its on the fairly thin side) it means that the case picks up grease and grime easily. This makes the back feel slimy and almost slippery. Rubbing it on my jeans usually fixes it up, but it is annoying when it feels like my phone might slip out my hand.

    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.

    Changed colors in 3 1/2 months!

    I purchased this case and was extremely impressed when I received it; it was glossy, easy to grip, and beautifully, pristine white. Three and a half months later, the case is still glossy and easy to grip, but the pristine white pieces turned into a very dingy, dirty-looking bluish gray color. The company was no help, as they seem to not want to admit an issue. You should definitely buy it...if you want a different-looking case in three and a half months! The attached photos are my case at 3 1/2 months next to a brand new case in the store.

    doesn't fit right

    The cutouts along the bottom of the case do not fit my iPhone 8 just right. They are off enough so that when it's plugged in to charge, it keeps going in and out of charging (you can hear the sound it makes when you plug it in or unplug it, but it keeps doing it, especially if you move the phone, even slightly, while it's plugged in). The cutouts on either side of the charging port are off also. The problem is that all of the cutouts for the ports on the bottom of the phone are slightly covered along the top of the ports by the case. The back cutout for the camera is fine. I suppose I could cut it to fit, but for $40 I don't want to risk that not working or my self-modifying to compromise the protection it provides, and then not being able to return it.

    Not well made, did not fit

    Bought this for my new iPhone 7 after using their iPhone 5s version for over 2 years. Right out of the box the case did not fit over the bottom of the phone by the charging port/home button. There is not enough material to stiffen up the lower portion of the case and so it does not grab the bottom of the phone at all, and slides down the curved edge of the screen and partially blocks the charging port. Also nice is the fact that you have to have really long skinny nails to operate the mute switch on the side of the phone, as I couldn't get my normal sized finger down far enough into the recess to turn the switch up or down. Would not recommend at all. I went with the otterbox symmetry case instead and have no complaints at all.

    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.

    The I-Phone 8

    I purchased the I-Phone 8 after having tried a Samsung Galaxy for a few years. I had an I-Phone before the Samsung and was never totally happy with the switch. I use a Mac desktop at home and had lost the ability to have my phone and computer communicate. I love my new phone except for the fingerprint ID system. It is very inconsistent in its ability to read my fingerprint. There are too many variables affecting this system, including whether the button and your finger are immaculately clean. So I end up with the usual punch in code system which is a hindrance when you are trying to catch a spontaneous picture quickly and have to punch your code in first.

    I have been used to using LifeProof and OtterBox cases, but really didn't want such a large footprint for this latest iPhone. This case covers what it needs to, exposes what doesn't need to be covered, and seems to give good support. I am a cyclist, so occasionally my phone can take a tumble. I have high hopes that this will work OK in that situation, but better yet if it doesn't have to. :-) I like that the color of the phone is visible through the back of the case, since I like the color. A good case, but it would have to be extraordinary to get more than four stars. Such a basic product is easy to like, hard to love.

    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!!!

    Case is not very functional

    I have always purchased Tech21 cases for my phone for multiple reasons. They’re low profile, offer good coverage, and are very drop resistant. I haven’t broken a phone yet! However, this particular Tech21 case did not fit well on my phone. I even exchanged it for another one, thinking it was possibly defective. Same thing. The sides of the case fit loosely and did not overlap onto the screen. If I were to drop the phone and it were to land on the edge or the screen, there would be no buffer. In my experience, cases usually sit slightly higher than the screen to offer a bit of protection.

    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.

    I recently purchased an iPhone 7 after my 5S was becoming obsolete. I had the same Tech21 case for the 5S and was quite pleased. So I got the same one for my iPhone 7. The case is very well constructed of a semi-soft plastic that absorbs the shock of a dropped phone. All charging ports and buttons are accessible. Note that the case will not protect the screen, so you can still crack the screen if your phone falls face down on something sharp...or if a pet decides to step on it! It's not a particularly inexpensive case but is very well built. I do recommend this as a great case for the iPhone 7.

    HATE PUTTING A COVER ON THIS PHONE,I LIKE LOOKING AT THE JET BLACK,EVEN THOUGH ITS A FINGERPRINT MAGNET,BUT WHAT PHONE ISN'T.THIS COVER IS A SHINY BLACK WHICH MOLDS RIGHT INTO THE PHONE,IT'S HARD TO TELL IT HAS A COVER ON IT.THESE PHONES HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING ON THEM,WITH THE ROUNDED EDGES THIER HARD TO PICK UP AND HOLD ON TO.ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS COVER IS AT THE BOTTOM WHERE YOU PLUG IN TO CHARGE,THE LITTLE PIECE OVER THAT SECTION (ON THIS COVER)WAS BOWED DOWN A LITTLE GETTING IN THE WAY OF THE LIGHTNING CHARGE PORT.BUT THIER WASN'T A WHOLE LOT OF COVERS TO CHOOSE FROM FOR NOW SO THIS WILL DO.

    Great protection

    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.
