    Tech21 Evo Mesh Case for iPhone 7

    I’m sorry to say that the iPhone 7 case is also flawed. You can not press the power button. Who checks these?

    No incoming call sound when using this wallet

    Just received my first Tech 21 Evo Wallet/active in pink for my iPhone 7 plus. It looks really smart and feminine. Unfortunately, every incoming caller cannot hear my voice. This is every time. Took it to the apple shop where they tried it without the wallet and the sound was normal. They then tried my wallet in a brand new phone with my case on and once again the sound quality was zero. Clearly the design at the bottom of the casing, where it goes across the row of microphone speaker dots is stopping the sound from being picked up. I'm so disappointed in this design fault and I surely can't be the only one who has experienced this problem.

    Will have to return it.

    I got some spots in the phone because of the cover

    I had many Tech21 covers before because of that i got a cover for my i phone 7 plus black one from Jb Hifi. With in few months now i get some spots in the back of my phone. I went to Jb Hifi they also surprised to after seeing it and they tried to remove them but it doesn't work.
    We buy such a case for to protect the phone if it is damaging the phone we will get a worst feeling. I loved my phone very much now i have some spots on it which i cannot remove

    Great Quality Case

    I bought this case and loved the look of it on my white 7 Plus, but like some of the other reviewers, found the same issues - poor fitting around the bottom of the case and a hard to access mute button on the side. Unfortunately, I read those reviews after I bought it. Before returning it, I tried a Black case on and noticed a much snugger fit and a better opening on the side for the mute button. I took my white case back to Apple and explained the problem, and that a black case at the Telstra Shop seemed to fit much better. The assistant was heaps helpful. He took all 21 of the cases on the shop floor and we tried each one on for size. Only 3 of them fit better and more snugly like the black one did. It seems the first batch of cases had a few design faults and the more recent batches are much better. If you like the case and are finding the same issues as some of the other reviewers, take it back to Apple and explain and try on as many others as you can. You're bound to find one with the new "redesigned" features. I'm glad I persevered because I love the way this case looks and feels on my phone.

    Tech 21's Design and Quality Control on the Decline

    I just received my IPhone 7 Plus and felt confident that the Tech21 product would do as good a job as my previous three Tech21 cases. Man, was I wrong. Visually, it is very close to other such cases I have purchased for my Apple phones, but the functionality of this case is severely lacking. Obviously, the design team did not do much product testing before releasing it to sell.

    I don't have nubs for fingers -- and my fingernails are on the short side -- but there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that I can access the mute switch without using a pencil or -- saints preserve us -- a stylus. If I had any idea that the switch would be so recessed in the case, I would have purchased a different case.

    If you are considering a Tech21 case for your IPhone (whether or not you have ever used one), please take my suggestion and be VERY skeptical of the design. Do not rely on past experiences, or you will end up being as sorry as I am. Now, I have to go hunting for a useful and well-designed case that meets my needs the way that the previous Tech21 cases did.

    Could be great, but...

    Although this case looks good and feels good in the hand, it has a few serious problems:

    - Poor fit around the bottom of the phone. It's so loose that the bottom of the case can start coming off when you pull the phone out of your pocket.

    - Stiff, non-responsive buttons. The plastic buttons on the case are stiff and hard to press.

    - Poor design for the mute switch opening. The opening is too small, at least for my hands, which makes the mute switch hard to reach.

    I'm sorry I wasted my money on this case.

    Bottom of case does not wrap around iPhone 7 Plus correctly.

    Purchased this case with my iPhone 7 Plus and the design at the bottom is either flawed or I received a defective product. The rubber does not wrap completely around the speaker area to the top of the phone and "snap" into place over the glass. It instead is lax and you can push it out of the way easily with your finger, exposing the glass edge to damage. This also prevents the charging cable from being plugged in without some wiggling. For $40 this is unacceptable, returning item.

    Impressed with my Tech21 Evo Mesh case for my new iPhone 7 Plus!

    I'm really impressed with my Tech21 Evo Mesh case for my new iPhone 7 Plus! I have the white case on my rose gold and it looks really nice and feels even better. I've always used a tuff case like the Otterbox Defender or the LifeProof Nuud for protection (so glad I don't have to worry about a waterproof case anymore). This is my first bumper style case. It's very "grippy", I haven't dropped my phone once yet. I'm so glad the cameras and speakers aren't covered with glass or film. It really makes hearing and pictures much clearer. I also like that the charging/earphone port is wide open and will fit third party chargers/earphones. I bought 3 for me and my 2 kids and we're all satisfied.

    I don't have any trouble with the power/volume buttons or the mute switch and i keep my nails pretty short. The bottom of the case does feel a little loose, hopefully that won't be an issue in the future, but my husband has the same case on his 6S plus, and it has lived through drops without issue and it hasn't become looser. So far, so good!

    **** case

    This case is the worst iPhone case I've ever owned.
    Buttons don't press easily.
    mute button is difficult to switch.
    doesn't stay on the phone properly.
    I only got it as I needed something there and then and didn't want to get ripped off ore then what I already had.
    These phone cases are nicely packaged but it is basically a polished nard.

    It does "bulk"-up the iPhone 7 Plus ....

    Plus tends to come off the corner, the lower home button end, when you take it out from your jeans - note not on tight fitting jeans but normal straight gut jeans.
    The buttons are ok ... and if they could improve on the next design, they should include cover portion on the sound on/off button.
    I will not recommend my friends to buy this for their iPhone 7 Plus.

    Hard to reach the mute button

    I've used Tech21 cases for years and have always been a fan. They are no longer using D3O as a shock absorption material, which is a disappointment, but I'll give their new material a chance. This case makes it tough to reach the mute switch above the volume buttons. I struggle every time to reach it with the end of my fingernail. Keep a pencil handy to get in there to flip it. Seriously.

    Button covers not well designed

    This case makes it very difficult to press the lock button on my iPhone 7. The material of the button cover is quite stiff and hard to depress the few mm thickness of the case; and the button cover doesn't seem to sit right on top of the lock button - it needs to be further towards the front of the case to work less awkwardly.

    Awesome case for iPhone 7 Plus

    I just love Tech21 cases and must have over 5-6 of them on different iPhones. With the new iPhone 7 Plus, to me there's only one choice Tech21. With the black iPhone 7 Plus I wanted a case that would enhance the classic black look while complimenting it. This black case has the perfect look with that classic Mac Pro look on the back. As always the car is solid, makes the phone easy to hold and doesn't add much bulk. All while keeping my phone safe from drops! What more can I say? Just Awesome!

    Protective Case, Recommended

    Ever since my iPhone 5, I have been using Tech 21 cases. The Evo Mesh is great for the iPhone 7 - it feels as good and "grippy" as it has in past generations. I've already dropped my phone many times, and I am confident of the protection this case offers. I have purchased both the white and black cases, (one for me, one for my wife.) I've also installed the Tech 21 screen protector - that's recommended too.

    This is my first Plus phone, and I've noticed that the bottom is a more lose than I would like it. I think it's because of the width of the phone.

    I also am curious to see if the clear part of the case will yellow over time.

    Great value, great protection without sacrificing thinness. Well done Tech 21!

    Love Tech21, but this case is flawed

    I'm a big fan of Tech21 cases. My family and I have used several of their cases over the years and been happy with the protection they provide. So why 1 star? I bought this case when purchasing my iPhone 7 Plus. Much to my surprise, the case doesn't allow me to access the silent switch on the left side of the phone. They didn't engineer the opening properly so the switch cannot be reached.

    I'll be returning the case with the hope that other Tech21 cases for the 7 Plus don't have the same issue.

    Great case!

    If you're a fan of Tech21 cases and just bought an iPhone 7, then this is your case. It has a good lip to protect the screen, but allows for a screen protector to be installed with ease. The back mesh part isn't as pronounced as it is in this picture, so check it out for yourself. I think it's more transparent. It's easy to get on and off and should offer some great protection without the bulk like only Tech21 can offer.
