    *Scratch Resistant*

    • Written by Tommy C from Levittown

    So this case offers awesome drop protection. Its sleek and aesthetically pleasing. Scratch resistant it is not. I've been using it for about a month and a half and it's full of fine scratches. I like the case and will always trust otterbox, but maybe they should change the description.

    Most Appealing Otterbox Ever Made!!!!

    • Written by Nicholas Q from Staten Island

    This GORGEOUS case definitely serves its purpose for protection and is so sleek and stylish. The reason I have to take one star way from this review is the fact that the black edges around the case scratch easily I put the case into my pocket and took it right out and it was scratched already mind you i had only bought the case 10 minutes prior to this happening but I've owned the case for 2 weeks now and its doing its job and its still pretty to look at. 4 amazing stars !

    Good and bad

    • Written by George S from Anacortes

    The good: Looks nice, well made. Adequate protection from most falls. The Bad: Bulkier than I would like, but probably the tradeoff for more protection. The back is plastic, but I have not had the scratches others have had. Smudging yes, but no different than the phone glass.

    Seems a good value for the money, and mostly esthetically pleasing. To my eye however, the case does make the phone seem like it has been going to the gym too much.

    Lowest Profile Otterbox I've Owned

    • Written by Justin F from Kettering

    I received my OtterBox case for my iPhone 7 Plus one week ago and so far I am satisfied with the purchase. The back of the case is made of hard plastic which is clear. It shows off the Jet Black of the upper three-fourths of back of my phone very well (to be specific, you can see the word iPhone at the bottom of the phone but you cannot see any of the small print below the word iPhone). The bottom fourth of the backside of the case is made of leather which appears to be of high quality. I do not believe this leather will warp over time. The leather feels comfortable in my hand and provides A decent grip which assist with this larger phone. The hard plastic on the back of the case is raised high enough to prevent your camera glass from making contact on a hard, flat surface. This was one of the reasons why I purchased an OtterBox case for my iPhone 5C, however that model had a raised back which made the overall phone very bulky. This particular case protects the camera lens glass while being low profile at the same time. As for the side of the case, part of the plastic comes up from the back halfway while the front half is made of a rubberized material. This rubberized material around the edge provides additional grip to hold the device firmly and is raised high enough to prevent your camera glass from making contact on a hard, flat surface. The bottom of this case appears to be very high-quality with a combination of a black hard plastic combined with a rubberized material. There are three slots on the bottom of this case to provide unobstructed access to the charging port, one of the two stereo speakers, and the barometer. The material is hard enough where I do not believe it will rip or tear from normal use compared to my previous OtterBox case for my iPhone 5C which had a minor tear. This case definitely met my needs meeting the balance between protection, being low profile, protecting the dual camera lens, protecting the front glass screen ( there is no material that physically goes over the screen; I used a separate tempered glass screen protector), and also providing an unobstructed view of the backside of my case which gives me the ability to enjoy the Jet Black color I purchased. I do find that fingerprints smudge on this plastic, however I made sure to wipe down the back of my phone with a soft terrycloth towel and used a glove to place my phone into this case to ensure there were no fingerprints on the back side upon installing the case on the phone. Installation was easy and the case is one single piece. As far as I'm concerned fingerprints on the hard plastic is a non-issue as I can wipe them away at any time. Although at the time of this posting I have only had the case for a week, so far I am thoroughly satisfied with the purchase. Overall, I would rate this case an 8.5 out of 10 and would recommend purchasing this particular case. I was not compensated in any way by Apple or buy OtterBox for this review or purchase. This purchase was my own after doing thorough research between multiple options for the iPhone 7 Plus (2016) model.
