    Lasted ONE day! Stay away! So disappointed in Apple!

    This deserve ZERO stars. I bought this case for $40, the same price I could have lid for a sturdy otter box, and within one day it has turned from white to grey, and the outer rubber part are loosened and about to rip. Stay away! It’s a waste of money & it won’t protect your phone. Read all the other reviews, it’s happened to so many other people!

    lasted a week or two

    i have always liked my tech21 cases in the past... but the iphone 7 version is terrible. the clear case gets all kinds of dirt behind it, which ends up causing the back of the phone to get scratched. the rubber edge also comes apart in a week or two.

    Couldn't have been more dissappointed

    Same with the other reviews the first problem I had was the white rubber discoloring to grey, which was the least of my issues, the rubber has become to peel off, the bottom piece that is near the charger port has detached completely, the plastic corner also on the lower half has broken off, and the back of my phone is completely scratched up.

    Tech21 Evo Elite Case

    This case promises to protect your iphone. Very ironically, this case fully damaged my phone, horrible!! The back of my iphone is full of scratches, all made by this case.

    elegant, functional, comfortable; but not for "construction site use" maybe

    I have a gel case bought recently I love it. I have flub/dropped the I phone once without breakage from about hip level (was not a bad hit). If you treat your iPhone like your car keys (or are accident prone) maybe pay for better case (though some cases cost as much as an iPhone).

    No strings attached? In this case I would say YES - do attach a string just like some attach a wallet to a chain. If you do then obviously your iPhone physically can never hit the ground that's for sure :) You can get an "iPhone lanyard" (necklace) that will %100 prevent iPhone drops and are very cheap. Compare a lanyard $7 to highly questionable mega-boxes, bulky, that cost as much as a new iPhone literally ($200): then also compare that many if not all of these $200 "protectors" do lead to iphone screens cracking - I've seen it.

    Case prohibits phone features

    Bought the new case based on retailers recommendation, however, the IPhone 7 swipe function won't work to answer incoming calls while the phone is in the case (but can swipe to unlock otherwise), and the lock button on the side won't work... it's like the case is too tight and pressing in the wrong places.
    Disappointing as it looks good and feels great to handle.

    Do not buy - terrible quality

    It was a beautiful case that became yellow grey in colour within the first few days. Two months in, it looks very worn out and dirty and has started developing small bubbles on the white rubber panel and it is tearing away from the rose gold sides. I wasted 40£ on this case. Would not recommend. Never thought that apple would sell such a low quality product in store. I have registered a complaint online, hopefully customer service is listening !

    Absolute garbage

    From the day I got this case the bottom rubber hung instead of conforming to the case, and now the rubber on the back is doing the same thing. I've had this case for maybe 6 months and it's falling apart. Definitely not worth the money.

    Apple Recommended, User Disproved & Zero Stars

    I too bought this case at the recommendation of the Apple employee when getting my new iPhone7. It matched the rose gold perfectly as many have said...and just like others have said, the white discolored easily...but I didn't care. Because all I wanted was for my phone to be protected. The Apple store employee talked me out of buying an Otterbox which I had previous success with...stating Tech21 is the only one endorsed and tested by Apple to know they are shock resistant/protect your phone. Well, I have been unusually careful in the last 8 months of having the phone/case until today. I leaned over to give my dog some water and the phone fell one foot (not greater than 6.6), landed squarely on its back and the screen splintered into a thousand pieces. ONE FOOT? On it's back? A $9 case from TJMaxx has better protection (and doesn't say it has any). This was a complete ripoff at $50 and shouldn't be endorsed or pushed by Apple employees. What a joke.

    This case will save your phone.

    I had one of these cases on my iPhone 6 for a couple of years, and never had to replace a single part on the phone thanks to the excellent technology in this case. I have now purchased one for my iPhone 7; there was never going to be another case for me. Not only do these cases absorb impacts and protect your phone from damage, I have also found that when dropped into water (and retrieved quickly) they also protect your phone from water damage - my iPhone 6 leapt out of my pocket into a bucket of water one time, fully submerged, and NONE of the water sensors were activated. Thanks, Tech21. I have the clear case for my 7, and yes I do get colour rub-off from my jeans, but it polishes off... and for me, the protection alone is more important that a scrape here and there. I have not found the back to get scratched as others are reporting, nor the silver trim to rub off. Cases are designed to bear the brunt of knocks and scrapes so some wear shld be expected. Buy with confidence.

    DO NOT USE THIS CASE

    I am so disappointed in this case. I bought it because an Apply employee recommended it to me when I got my new iPhone 7. It was touted as helping to protect the phone when dropped. IT DOES NOT PREVENT CRACKS OR DISPEL FORCE. I have gone through just as many glass screen protectors as I used to without this case. What REALLY angers me though is that it has completely destroyed the back of my phone - dust, sand, dirt etc gets trapped between the case and phone, and scratches the heck out of it - like literally down to the silver metal, not just superficial scratches. The "clear" plastic looks grimy and gross. the white rubber quickly faded to grey, and has come off at multiple points around the bottom right corner and on the back around the charging port area. This case was a total waste of money! I am so upset with it... I am someone who has always kept my phones in pristine condition, with cases and screen protectors, etc. AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS! I wish I had checked online before I bought it in the store...

    Don't buy.

    Agreed with everyone elses comments. This case was beautiful, but it turned yellow and then blue ish. you cannot put it in your pockets, or let it touch anything. Unfortunate.

    Waste of money

    I am sure (hope) that technically the product is sound enough but it looks really terrible. I have got my beautiful, expensive iPhone 7 in a case that completely devalues the phone. The bumper is loose around the bottom of the phone, dirt gets in the back but what is most upsetting is that it was expensive and white trim around the front is permanently filthy and it cannot be cleaned. It is actually embarrassing but as it was so expensive I cant justify handing out another £40. Firmly recommend that you don't buy this style.

    Was good for two days

    Soon after two days, the rubber on the front looked nasty and started to peel off. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF GETTING THIS

    Very disappointed! Waste of money

    I got this case from the Apple Store and within days the outer area of the case had changed colour it looks disgusting after a few months of use also lots of dirt gets in the case and has made small scratches on my phone. Total waste of £40.

    0 stars

    If I could give this product 0 stars I would. Dirt gets under the case and has damaged my brand new phone. The rubber round the outside has gone dirty and come away. The rose gold on the side and back has broken. I brought the case in the shop so really disappointed I didn't see the other reviews. Waste of money would not expect a product of this quality to be sold my Apple!

    Don't buy this case!

    Don't buy this case. When I initially bought my iPhone I got this case and the gold edge peeled off the bumper of the case within the first week so I exchanged it for a new one. The replacement has now became discoloured on the white edge and appears to have a blistered appearance which has resulted in parts of the rubber coating peeling. I do do recommend this product due to these reasons.

    Gets dirty too fast

    I had the previous generation of this case for the iphone 6plus, and it was 5 stars. This one on the other hand, the white rubber got worn out and dirty very quickly. It is unacceptable for a case in this price range. The protection is still good but aesthetically it is not up to par. Dissapointed!

    dissapointment

    Within 3 weeks of buying this case the plastic protective rim began to peel off and has degraded the aesthetics of the phone. Disappointed, as the last texh21 case I had for the 5S was very good.

    4 months and it's falling apart.

    I am/was an avid Tech21 case supporter. Almost as much of a supporter as I am for Apple. I encourage everyone in the office to purchase Tech 21 to protect the company issued iPhone I sign out.
    I also get them for my kids iPhones. So I didn't have many qualms about paying what I paid for this case. However 4 months later and it is falling apart. I am in need of a replacement. The rose gold is peeling off and will get caught in my hair. I'm very disappointed. However, you can't beat how well it protects my phone. That's why I'm giving it 3 stars. That is my number one priority.
