    Great thin profile case!

    I have tried a lot of cases over the years and have been primarily a speck user for my iPhone's. That being said, I also like to use a screen protector and am a fan of the mooshi brand for those. The speck candy shell did not allow enough room for my mooshi on the iPhone 6/6s so I went without for until that case fell apart. I went looking for a new case and came across the Tech 21 case. I instantly liked the slim profile of the case and the single material on the outer layer. It fits the phone well and stays put with no issues. The outer layer of material has sufficient grip, but does not grab on fabric or try to empty my pocket when I pull it out. Ina edroppedthe phone a number of times with this case and have experienced no damage at all. And best of all I am able to use my screen protector once again!

    My prior case spontaneously self destructed (planned obsolescence?) and I needed a replacement. This case truly protects and is thin enough that I don't feel like I'm toting a laptop. The edge "bumpers" are thick enough to reliably protect the phone if it falls on the edge. The side buttons are a little firm for my preference but hopefully they are tough enough to last a long time. It's not a waterproof case but most aren't. I really like the light "grip" the texture on the back of the case gives. It is a high quality case that is lower in price than many others. I use a glass screen protector with the case. Since it is one piece, there is nothing to come apart. I love it, and would buy it again in a second.

    Looks and feels great, but lacks protection

    The case fits very well and is not bulky. There is access to all ports and the feel in your hand is great and not slippery. We have two of these in the family. However, this is not as protective as an Otterbox! My wife has the Otterbox Commuter style and has dropped her phone many times on asphalt with no issues. My son recently had a drop with his Tech 21 and it shattered the glass. I know every drop is different, but when you hold two phones side by side, you can definately feel the addtional cushion of the Otterbox vs. the Tech 21. However, if you are a looking for LESS bulk and a good form fitting case that looks good, the Tech 21 would work for most.

    Sleek and Durable

    These cases look simple yet sleek and sophisticated. They are durable. I’ve had other cases whose colors fade or whose surfaces become worn over time. This is not the case with this case! Pun intended. By the way, I had a black Evo tactical case for the last year with my previous phone. So I can speak to their durability. Not only that, they protect my phone well. I have dropped my phone multiple times and the phone still looks perfect. It also fits tightly so debris cannot get behind the phone and scratch up the back. This is a great case; get it.

    Good General-Use Case

    The case is reasonably thin so it doesn't tax your pocket's capacity. It is textured so it is not slippery to hold, but also not particularly grippy. It slides easily into and out of the pocket. This may be its best attribute, as the phone by itself is notably slippery and easy to drop. The cast has a raised edge around the screen side to prevent screen damage if you drop it (and it doesn't hit a table corner or a rock). I have not tested out any big drops, but seems adequately protective. The fit to the phone is very good. On the whole, it is an entirely serviceable iPhone case.

    I heard of this tech21 company though Apple's website. Then I found them in their store. And I like how mine has held up, over 3 years. I liked the rubber one I had previously. This one is more like a harder plastic feel, but feels good, doesn't get stuck when inside my slacks, trying to pull it out. if I drop it, it seems to really protect my phone and it's not bulky. I recommend a clear screen cover as well.

    I cracked my screen on my other iPhone with a case I thought was sturdy (clearly it wasn’t). After I searched through the cases in the Best Buy store, it came down to the Tech21. It’s slim, durable, affordable AND it fits in my pocket without getting stuck or caught on the fabric! I’ve dropped this the floor at work, my wood floor in my house and it’s hit the floor plenty of times in my car when I’m turning corners. My phone is still intact, no scratches or dings on the screen or the body.

    I needed a new case for my phone since I just had a flimsy plastic one, and this new one does not disappoint. I will say that I am not too rough on my phone so I did not want a big bulky phone case. The EVO tactical case is perfect for my needs. Protects my phone well, is sleek and slim, not bulky, and fits in jean and chino pockets well, not taking up a lot of room. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone that is looking for something sleek, Slim, and not bulky.

    This item was purchased for a relative. The phone case is simple in design, but serves the primary purpose of protecting the iPhone. There is no screen protection, so you will have to buy that separately. The benefits are it's affordability and compact design. Be aware that this is not a thick or overly padded case so it may not offer the same drop protection as some of the larger/thicker cases. My relative was very happy with the case and how it fit their phone.

    Perfect case for my iPhone 6s

    At this time, there are not too many choices in brick and mortar stores for iPhone 6s cases. Most stores are catering to the newest phones. But BestBuy did have a few choices in the store. I selected this case as it was a fairly slim design and would slip into my front pocket easily. Plus it has the built-in shock resistance up to 6 and 1/2 feet. I am very happy with the case!!

    Can't handle cards

    I wanted a phone case with room for my ID, a credit card, and a $20 bill (emergency cash). I had a Speck case with my iPhone 6 that I was sad about losing when I upgraded to the 7 (yes, I bought this case quite a while ago). This case can fit my ID and credit card, ID and $20, credit card and $20, but not all 3. And when the credit card's in the slot, the cover bulges. I wasn't unhappy enough to make the trek back to return it, but this one's just "meh".

    This is my first smart phone and accessories, the sales associate was very helpful in directing me in the right direction for this purchase. I have had this phone now almost 8 weeks and would recommend it to anyone. It is user friendly and will run Microsoft Office programs with ease. The case is well fitted and the case along with the phone will fit in my white shirt pocket without any bulk or problems. I love that feature. With blue tooth the phone stays in the pocket most of the time.

    Does the trick

    The only reason I am not rating this a 5 star is because I have not yet dropped my phone and so I cannot comment on it's protection level. I do, however, like the slim design. It fits well in your hand and pocket... Not at all bulky like the Otterbox Defender. If it truly protects as well as the Defender (which I've owned in the past for older versions of the iphone) then it will be the perfect case for you. By the way, I also combined this with the HD glass screen protector

    I've recently picked up a job running sales via a Square device on my iPhone at a local music venue. My Defender case was too chunky to accommodate the Square, and I was really worried picking up this much thinner case. But, it works well enough for protection. I won't say it's better at saving a device than a full-on wraparound Otterbox or anything, but it does its job well for working a will call booth a few hours a night.

    Great Fit, Great Protection

    Recommended this case by friend. It is simple, classy lines and details, and not bulky, Of utmost importance...it is very protective. I have Otterbox and LifeProof cases, which do a great job, but can be overly bulky for the protection. This case protects while keeping low profile. I only wish Tech21 had a similar case for my iPad mini 4. Note: I did add a Zagg screen protector, for privacy and protection. The screen protector and case do not interfere with each other.

    Tech21 iPhone case

    I have found that the Tech21 iPhone case for the iPhone 6 is well made and tough. It provides the protection I need without the bulk like some other manufactures that triple the size of the phone. This case give the iPhone the protection while remaining stylish enough to be able to slip nicely into a pocket or jacket sleeve. It allows ample purchase so that the phone does not slip from your grasp. Overall, a well made and good addition to the phone.

    Was looking for a simple, form fitting case for my new Apple 6S that would wrap the whole phone, offer some protection for the screen, and actually slide in and out of my pockets easily - this is it. I've been perfectly satisfied on all counts - plus the case looks good. It's not at all bulky and adds very little to the overall dimensions of the phone. It has just enough of a ridge around the screen to keep the screen off of any surfaces when you place it face down,

    If you are trying to extend your phone physical beauty then this is the product you for you, I am really picky about my electronics and try to keep all of my electronic children safe and looking in pristine condition. So i love this case, my phone has hit the pavement more time that i can remember, and this durable case has taken a beaten and continues to keep my phone safe.

    It’s hard to find cheap cases for the 6s. My daughter needed a new one but didn’t want to spend the money on an otter box since we will be upgrading her soon. It’s a good case for the money. She really likes it as well because it’s so thin and light. Probably wouldn’t protect against major abuse but she takes good care of her phone.

    Fits and protects my three year old iPhone6

    Let's credit Apple first -- my iPhone outlived its original protective case. Found this one in the clearance aisle. It fits the phone fine and will do a good job protecting it hopefully for the next couple of years. It's harder to find cases for the 6, but I give Best Buy credit for actually stocking several different models. This one was the least expensive but does the job.
