    Awful phone case

    The white around the edge of the case has completely changed colour from clothing transfer. Won't be purchasing a Tech21 product again.

    I'm not so sure about this one

    Case just arrived today. I read all the one-star reviews before buying, decided to give it a whirl anyways. I'm coming from another Tech 21 case that I bought from my service provider -- no complaints about the function of my old case, but it had severely discolored within a couple months of use.

    So I bought this one, and it just arrived. I am not impressed with the build quality...it looks and feels cheaper than my existing case and was about $10 more expensive to boot. The case was bent slightly coming out of the box, and examining it from all angles, there are several places where the plastic is slightly warped. For the price and the hype, I would expect this thing to be almost flawless, but this has the look and feel of something that should retail for maybe ten bucks.

    So, as I'm sitting here side-eying this thing, and re-reading the other reviews that speak to its tendency to discolor quickly, along with the reports that it doesn't actually do much for protection...I'm pretty sure I'm going to send it straight back.

    Worst Case EVER.

    I had an iPhone 7. Key word:HAD. I bought this case because I heard that Tech21 was one of the best brands to buy from. It was not a cheap case to start out with, and when I placed it on my phone, I noticed it was VERY large. I kept it on though, because what's the point in buying an expensive case if you don't use it? Well, one day, I was walking, JUST WALKING, and I dropped my phone. I was like, "Whatever, not a big deal, after all I have this SUPER PROTECTIVE CASE THAT'S REALLY EXPENSIVE!" So, I picked up my phone, and BAM! There it was. A shattered screen. I felt betrayed. I ended up going to the AT&T store (they're my carrier) and little did I know that my iPhone 7 was payed off, and I was able to get the iPhone X for free. FOR FREE (I also got $100 for my old broken iPhone 7 because they were going to use it for parts). Ever since that moment, when I was gifted with the incredible iPhone X, I've used only OtterBox. And guess what? MY PHONE HASN'T CRACKED YET. Can you believe it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY, OR PHONE ON THIS CASE!

    Aweful Purchase

    I purchased this case from an Apple store with high expectations and within a couple of weeks the front rubber if the case which is white became discolored because it what ever it rubbed against it stained and it got worse. I’m very disappointed for the amount of money I paid for this case. This case should come off of the market for this issue.

    The worst case

    The worst case you buy. The quality of the materials is very bad and the cover is useless. I dropped the phone only 1 time less than 1 meter and broke the screen. I always use tech21 but from this purchase I do not buy anymore.

    Very Dissapointed!

    This case has protected my phone when dropped from a height, however the case has become very baggy around the phone and it would appear others have had the same issues. A lot of discolouration too, don’t waste your money on this case!! I’ll be taking mine back for a refund to buy something real suitable :)

    These don’t last!

    I have always used tech 21 cases - and until this one i’ve always been super happy!
    The white covering/film on the front edges of the case stretched and warped and discolored. In less than a month it’s so ugly it’s in the bin.
    Biggest disappointment in a case yet. Apple you should stop selling this case - it’s so poorly constructed and doesn’t hold up to every day use - it’s not worth $10 let alone $80!! I will no longer purchase tech 21 cases. I never thought I would say that.

    Waste of Money

    I do not rate this case at all!
    I've had this case for 6 weeks, if I lived nearer to an Apple Store I would have taken it back after the first week!
    On the front of the case, the bottom of the raised surround has gone baggy, so doesn't sit correctly.
    The surround around the front of the case is white, which has now changed to a horrible colour, which no matter how much cleaning is attempted it still is stained/dirty looking
    Shocking qualiity considering the price and that it is a Apple recommended product!

    Does not have a good grip, purchased this case and found that my phone dropped from my hands twice. Fortunately my phone didn't break, decided to buy another case and stopped using this one.

    I had the case for a full 24 hours and the rim looked trashed. I LOVE the look especially with the rose gold iphone 8 but going to return it. Too much money for that kind of performance.

    White rim quickly absorbs colors of clothes.

    I am not sure if there is a chemical reaction that makes the white rim on the front absorb colors from clothes when you have it in your pocket but it happens and quickly. I both this for my wife last Saturday and by the following Monday it looked bad! I wouldn’t buy this again if it was 5 dollars instead of $50.

    Doesn't do what it says

    I bought this case on the understanding that it would protect my iPhone from dropping from up to 6 feet, I dropped mine from about 2 feet and it did not protect my phone what so ever! I now have a smashed screen. I think £40 for this case is extortionate and is not worth it

    Terrible Case, Plastic rim stretched out and discolored after 1 month

    I bought this phone case with my iPhone 7 at the store 1 month ago. I was recommended this case as an equivalent to a Speck or Otterbox. I bought the silver/clear case. The white plastic around the rim has discolored to a gray color and will not clean. Picks up other pigment from jeans or bags easily. This plastic which lines the phone and protects it on the bottom edge is flimsy and stretched out after 1 month of use. I dropped my phone and the bottom corner was exposed due to this flaw and now there is a small crack. I would not recommend this case to anyone, it is no longer cute or functional (after 1 month of use)!
