    It's Worth the ��

    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.

    *Scratch Resistant*

    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.

    SCRATCHES, SCRATCHES AND MORE SCRATCHES

    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.

    Most Appealing Otterbox Ever Made!!!!

    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 !

    Needs improvement

    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.

    Looks Great, but scratches easily

    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.

    Not too bulky. Great protection. Nice feel

    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.

    NOT UP TO OTTERBOX STANDARDS

    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.

    Good and bad

    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.

    What a joke. (scratch resistance)

    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.

    Lowest Profile Otterbox I've Owned

    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.

    As far as cases go

    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.

    Scratches too easily

    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.

    Mixed Feelings - Returning

    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.

    Eh...

    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.

    Not up to the Otterbox Standard

    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.
