    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.

    My Daughter got this for her Apple I-phone 7 because she really liked the design, she had gone from a Otter Box to this one on design only, I wasn't to sure of the protection it would provide for the glass, but since we had a glass shield protector, I was ok with it.Recently her phone was dropped and it it cracked the glass, not her fault but this didn't protect it like an Otter box would have. If you like the design of this then it may be the product for you, if not it may not protect you phone like you want it to.

    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.

    Could Be Better

    Nice fit and finish, the clear backing is a nice touch. Some of the things discussed in other reviews are accurate; the buttons are a little difficult to press and the space for the ringer switch is deep and difficult to reach for regular sized fingers. The bottom section is flimsy, could have a better design. At the end of the day It’s a good fit for the phone and the material gives you the impression that you have good protection, but I can’t attest to that since the phone hasn’t been dropped yet!

    One of my favorites but not this Generation

    The Tech 21 Evo check case has been one of my favorites for the last 2 generations of iPhones. However, this generation for the iPhone 7 is not up to the same quality standard of the past versions. It you look closely, there is alot of unfinished and rough/jagged plastic seems...especially around the buttons. This is specifically true where the 2 plastic materials used in the case meet. I'm disapointed in the quality and hope its just because I bought when they first came out and quality control gets better with time.

    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!

    Good cover

    The cover is a good cover and has protected my phone from 2 drops already. The only part I don't like is the mesh part on the back of the cover. When I take it off I see these mesh lines on the back of my phone. I would have prefer cleaner lines instead of those lines. Not sure if the mesh is there to offer better protection but if not the cover could do without. Also to get access to the switch is a bit difficult and normally I have to take off the cover to do that. Overall the cover is pretty sturdy.

    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.

    Functional case

    I got this case for my daughter's phone. Although she is usual very responsible with her phone, there have been occasional mishaps. I wanted something that wasn't too obtrusive- like an Otterbox. Those are great, but for more intensive problems. This one was strong enough but not exceptionally thick. Still fits in her pockets and looks fashionable enough for a 15-yeara old. It has no screen cover, but if your phone already has a protecting strip, it works well.

    This is for a second phone (iPhone 8) I now have to carry for work. I didn't want to spend a lot but the phone is too slippery without a case. I also didn't want something really big. This is not too big and provides good grip. My one complaint is that pushing the power button is very difficult. I don't need to use that a lot so I just docked it one star.

    It's an okay case

    The reason why I rated it as 2 stars is because it doesn't keep out dust or dirt from the inside. You have to constantly take it off to clean the interior and the phone, and if you have the iPhone 7 black glossy version like I do, don't get this case because the dust and dirt that gets inside will leave bad scratches and leave your phone with permanent marks. Other than that, it does offer good protection in that it has saved my phone from falls from time to time.

    Great iPhone protection

    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.

    Just acceptable

    I purchased this case for an iPhone 8 when I first couldn't find anything else I liked. It does fit fine but I don't like how looks at the bottom where the lightning port is located, almost like it has to stretch to fit. It does stay on though. Also, the ring/vibrate switch is difficult to use because of the thickness. I'm sure the case protects the phone well against drops. I ended up returning it after finding something else to better suit my needs.

    I have the black iPhone 7 and this case in black looks super clean. I originally got the white one and thought it looked a little weird with the black, so I got this one and gave the white one away. It does make the phone feel a little wider but it has a nice grip. Only thing I would say is the rubber under the home button feels a little flimsy at times. I think after a long period of use that will be the first thing to break off but so far I'm enjoying this case.

    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.

    iPhone protection on a budget

    I needed to replace a more expensive protection case, but my local store stocked only a thin selection of replacements. They seemed like either cheap junk or way out of my budget. I’m glad I picked this one! It fits reasonably well and protected my phone when I dropped it. Yes, I would buy this product again.

    My wife got a case for her iPhone and loves it. I want a clear case for my iPhone but many reviews talk about the case "yellowing" in a very short period of time. Asked customer service about it, got some double-talk about what their warranty covers and does not cover, but never told me if "yellowing" is one of those things covered (I got the impression it isn't), so I'll probably seek a different case from another brand for my iPhone.

    Nice Looking Case, Thick Edges

    This is a good looking and stylish case. Protects relatively well, although it is pricey (but it's not anymore than most "nicer" cases). The only con I find is the edges are rather thick, increasing the width and length of your phone a bit more than expected (I realize this is more 'squishiness' between your phone and an accidental drop, but it also made it less stable in my car mount). All in all, decent and good looking case.

    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'm a fan of Tech 21 cases. I bought an otterbox for my iPhone 7 and it was bulky and made my phone feel heavier, the moment I got this case my phone felt instantly lighter and thinner knowing my phone is still protected. I am bummed about the color options that are available and where the power/volume buttons and the opening for the vibrate button is they could have filled in the spaces with the white to make the case look better though!
