    Not up to the Otterbox Standard

    • Written by Colwyn M from Winters

    I've had the 7 Plus case on my phone for a solid three hours and there are a whole bunch of scratches all around the plastic part of the case. They're extremely visible I'm shocked that there are this many considering it's only been in and out of my jeans pocket. I'm calling Otterbox in the morning and seeing if they're aware of the issue.

    Only does half the job.

    • Written by Rod C from Newport

    The case is very tight fitting and difficult to remove or insert the phone without what feels undue force. The case is supposedly for the 8 but the edge of the case is almost flush with the screen and it looks almost like the phone is too big for the case. Back of the phone is probably protected, screen has little to no protection.

    Poor quality

    • Written by Katerina C from London

    I’ve had the cream version of this case for about 6months. It is it terribly difficult to get my phone in or out of it and has resulted in some scratches to the corners of the phone from the force needed. The leather has worn and discoloured, the rubber doesn’t clean properly and the clear plastic part at the back scratches easily. For the price, this case is not of good quality and will not last. Mine looks ready for the bin!

    Returning the case. Its been on my phone for less than 12 hours, the plastic is already scratched up from going in and out of my jeans pocket, and has a little crack. Assuming it came that way and didnt notice until I had the jet black inside the case for the small crack to show. I guess I am going back to the defender. If this case already has a small crack and has not been dropped, not feeling very great about it protecting my phone.

    Looks Great Until the Return Date Lapses

    • Written by Oliver K from Las Vegas

    I was happy to find an Otterbox brand case in Apple's store because I trust their product's durability. Sadly, this product does not live up to the Otterbox brand. The leather has worn off and the back is covered in scratches. I would not recommend this product at all. It looked great the first week or so, but soon after, the case started to get all scratched up. Very disappointed in both Apple and Otterbox on this one.

    My First Disappontment From Otterbox

    • Written by William P from Knoxville

    I have purchased many Otterbox products in the past, and have been very impressed by their durability. I wanted a case that provided a moderate amount of drop protection and looked great, maybe even showed off the phone a little. Well this thing looks horrible two weeks in. I have no idea how it has collected so many scratches in such a short time. I’m really mad at myself for not returning this thing inside 14 days. Grip is good on the sides, horrible on the rapidly scratching back. Do yourself a favor and spend $40 elsewhere.

    I was really looking forward to writing a positive review for this product but sadly I cannot.. I purchased this case with the intention of showing off my beautiful jet black 7 plus with renowned otterbox protection and this clear case seemed to be the perfect combo. However straight out of the box this case had micro searches all over the back -- once on the device it took only seconds for the back to get scratch despite how careful I was (normal in and out of pocket use). After using this case for about a week I decided I would remove the case to put my Apple sillicone case back on because I couldn't deal with all the scratches on the case and how they looked on my gorgeous phone -- NOT ONLY WERE THERE COPIOUS SCRATCHES ON THE CASE WITH BARELY ANY USE -- THERE WERE SCRATCHES ALL OVER THE EDGES OF MY BRAND NEW JET BLACK IPHONE. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CASE IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR PHONE.

    Will not admit the case is substandard

    • Written by Jerry H from East York

    I purchased the Statement case for a previous Iphone case and it was fantastic.
    However I do not know if they changed the specs or the company manufacturing it, but the buttons for this case are incredibly stiff and even "plasticy" sharp and hard which hurt my fingers. I work in landscaping!
    Taking a screen shot meaning you need to touch both the home button and power button simultaneously was futile at best. A huge dissapponitment. In comparison to my previous and the later X series phones, Otter lost my trust when they did acknowledge how substandard and unsophisticated this case is compared to others models. That is ok. It made me look to other manufacturers!

    Scratches too easily

    • Written by Kristina H from Crestview

    Used this on my new 7 plus for three days before calling to request a refund.
    Case is very tight making it difficult to put on and remove, buttons are extremely difficult to press making screenshots and restarts hard, and most importantly and the deal-breaker: the clear part of the case started showing scratches within the first two days. I can't imagine how it would look in two weeks! I expected so much better from such a reputable company.

    Needs improvement

    • Written by Joshua R from Elm City

    I purchased this case with high hopes but sadly I plan on returning it today.
    This case is not scratch proof. I've literally kept it in my pocket and it's has
    several scratches on it in less than 3 days.

    Is not the same of 6S. On my first day of usage, was completely scratched on the plastic back side.
    Not recommendable.

    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.

    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 !
