    • Written by Adriel R from Houston

    I purchased my case prior to getting my iPhone 7Plus. I wanted to ensure that I would have a case available once my phone was received. Being an OtterBox fan, this case looked stylish and was a great price for an "exclusively" made item for Apple. So far the case will serve its purpose for protection. However, beware...the clear shell will scratch easily and may crack depending on the severity of the fall. My five star rating is based on the product being okay for a starter case, along with OtterBoxes warranty.

    What Jeans Are You People Wearing?

    • Written by Airiana A from Colorado Springs

    I first bought this case for my iPhone 6 back in 2015 or so and it protected the phone for 2 years with no problems. I dropped my phone on all surfaces such as sidewalks, streets, tile, countertops ect. I have also dropped it while riding my bike in the city and watched it skid across the street and the screen did not crack or shatter once. I did not have a tempered glass screen protector installed on my phone so there were some minor scratches visible on the screen but nothing noticlable without looking closely.

    I appreciate the design of the case because it is minimal with max protection. This case is more slim compared to when the otter box first came out for the older iPhones and it was a brick of silicone. The clear plastic part of the case is nice for people who like to customize for example I put Polaroid photos or stickers in between and change it up from time to time.

    Yes the case will most likely scratch if you drop your phone on hard surfaces.
    Yes it will add a centimeter of bulk around your phone.
    This is the purpose of the case it’s to protect your phone and if scratches bother your from dropping it maybe buy a case that’s all one solid color??
    Or do you best not to drop your phone at all?

    I purchased this case for my iPhone 8 Plus with a tempered glass screen protector and will continue to purchase this case for all my apple products.

    For people who find that the case get scratches from your jean pockets I suggest you wash your jeans with fabric softener inside out and hang dry. Maybe that’ll soften your pockets that are sewn in with cloth and aren’t even a jean material. Your reviews don’t make sense.

    Sleek look & great grip

    • Written by sara T from Norwood

    I really like this Otterbox Symmetry Case for Apple. I’ve only used Otterbox Defenders cases for my previous iPhones. I didn’t want the extra bulk or weight though since the 8 Plus is already big and “heavy”. I didn’t think twice about purchasing a different Otterbox case because the quality has been awesome. They also have a lifetime warranty.

    I’m surprised at the number of complaints about scratches. It clearly states it is scratch RESISTANT not scratch Proof. I’ve had this case on my phone for almost 2 months in a variety of situations and so far I don’t have any scratches on the clear back. I do clean my phone and case a couple of times a day so maybe that helps.

    I love the sleek slim look that also incorporates a rubber type band along the edges for a great grip. It’s a great case just be realistic there is not scratch proof plastic ����‍♀️

    Survived a 40 foot drop

    • Written by Anthony R from Oakland

    Cosmetically, as other reviews have said, yes the case does get scratched very easily but if you can get past that you will be getting what is, imo, the best looking otterbox case you can get. I love the clear back the the leather accent on the bottom is very nice to feel.

    On top of that, if you read the title, I was hiking on Mount Diablo through rock city and my 8 plus dropped out of my pocket off the biggest rock in the area, I watched it skid down the side before falling through trees onto the ground below. I rushed down to find it and when I found it there were some minor scuffs on the edge but the phone was completely fine, absolutely no marks. That's a good enough reason to write a good review for this case!

    Not too bulky. Great protection. Nice feel

    • Written by Guy B from San Diego

    Purchased this case because it was the only case Apple offered with real protection. I find the leather and rubber Apple cases leave the bottom too exposed. Although the back of the case will scratch a bit over time it's really not too bad. Easy to slip in and out of your pocket and can definitely absorb a good fall. Id recommend adding the Belkin InvisiGlass to your order.

    As far as cases go

    • Written by Bowen A from Tacoma

    Sure it'll scratch up the case but that's what cases are for. You want this clear plastic to see the matte or jet black of the phone. It's going to scratch just like every other clear case and it's going to show finger prints like every other clear case. But it keeps it from scratching up your phone which is what I care about. I like the case. Good buy and good product.

    It's Worth the ��

    • Written by Michael D from INDIANAPOLIS

    I Love This case. it Is a high quality case and for $40 you expert it to too. Otter box is emblazoned on the side rubber part. I received this the same day as my 7plus Black. I also have the spigen slim armor case with stand $30 but prefer the Otter Box over it with its clear back and leather bottom grip.

    Solid Case

    • Written by Daniel M from Calgary

    I got an Otterbox Statement for my iPhone, straying from my usual commuter. I wanted something a little more sleek, but just as sturdy. This case has hit the concrete, hit stairs, and tumbled off of couches many times, and only had bruises to show for it. No major cracks in the case, but the leather will get roughed up over time. I normally go for something higher defence, but this served my needs very nicely.

    Would recommend. Would always recommend otterbox, but if you aren't scaling mountains, Statement will cut it for you. It also kept it from getting squished about during long overseas flights. Quite happy and will be getting another. As per any type of protection, you should be planning to change it out every 2-3 years depending on use.

    BEST case

    • Written by XIAOJIE.J L from 北京市

    I am one of the very first people who purchased this case - have been using the wine color one for almost two years. it is amazingly durable and comfort to hold in your hands. I am really satisfied with the quality of the case even though the bottom color part has sort of 'pealed off'/faded. The other downside of the case is the plastic part which can be scratched easily like others' comments. BUT - BEST CASE EVER (I have used at least 20 cases from incase, otterbox, tech 21, applecase, Belkin, lander torrey and other fancy brands)!

    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.

    *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.

    Mixed Feelings - Returning

    • Written by Todd M from Buckeye

    I was looking for a iPhone case solution that would also provide impact protection. LIKES: nice solid feel to it around the edges and the leather trim is a nice touch. The back is hard, clear plastic. So I believe that it would provide good protection for the iPhone. This Otterbox does not provide any screen protection. DISLIKES: The back clear plastic will show fingerprints and was hard to keep clean. I agree with the other reviewer in that the clear plastic back scratches easily. Returning this case and continuing to look for a better solution.

    Looks Great, but scratches easily

    • Written by William W from Birmingham

    I'm going to start off by saying that this case looks nice (when you immediately put it on your phone) and that it is protective. However, after less than 4 days with the case it SCRATCHES VERY EASILY. I have yet to even drop it yet. If this doesn't bother you, I would definitely recommend buying the Statement Case. Scratches are very visible on the back. The case is a great idea and I would buy it again if it was less expensive. The camera still feels very exposed, and I had to buy a glass screen protector for the front to insure that my screen will not shatter. The leather feels nice and has yet to scratch so far. Honestly I would give this 2 1/2 stars if I could.

    What a joke. (scratch resistance)

    • Written by Devin C from Chalmette

    I've only had he case for less than a day and it already has light scratches on the clear part. I love the style of the case and the fact that it's not slippery. Only problem is when you sell a product that says scratch resistant please actually make it that way. I have yet to buy a case that is scratch resistant and that company backs that up. Otterbox is good just hate the empty promises.

    The Otterbox Statement case looks amazing! The leather bottom and the clear back feels great. It is however not scratch proof as advertised. If scratches do not bother you, go for it! I have had this case for 3 days and it is crazy how scratched it is.
