    Catastrophically bad design > catastrophically bad results ( CRACKED PHONE)

    • Written by Tony M from Montreal

    AS you can read on the many reviews here,
    1) people can't hear you - Case is over Microphone
    2) It is impossible to use the the silence button

    AS a result of 1) and 2) I was constantly having to peel off the case so people can hear me or to Silence/Un Silence/ Mute phone. As a result of the pressure required to peel of the case, it cracked the glass , front and back on my phone. DO NOT BUY. I Wish i could show pics here.

    Lastly - this was recommended by an Apple rep in an Apple store. .....

    C mon we expect better and further more for you to make it right for all affected....

    Don't WASTE your MONEY - this is a DUD

    • Written by Sarah B from Perth

    I have previously used a Tech 21 case on my Iphone 6 and it was perfect. This looks great but is totally useless. Incoming callers can not hear you at all. I have tried to contact the supplier with no result. My advice DON"T BUY and spread the word. Also very hard to access the silent swtich. USELESS bit of plastic. It is a shame you can not submit this review with no stars as it does not deserve one.

    Surprised by poor quality

    • Written by Frederik D from Saint-Constant

    I've been a fan of Tech21 cases and let me tell you, this one is disappointing. The bottom of the case doesn't wrap correctly, obstructing the speakers and the Lightning port. It doesn't look like it's a good fit by looking it bottom-up (not a straight line, rather a curved one. Feels like the case if forcing itself in or could end up damaging the phone. Also, have to force Lightning connector in and pry the case (which seems damaged now) to plug in properly. Also, it seems to limit the enhanced stereo speakers from playing correctly. Also, the mute switch is hardly accessible. another surprise was that the Apple specialist did propose to test with the same case in case it was a one off and the issue was there as well, suggesting that it's by design. Reached out to Tech21 support and hopefully the experience will be better with an alternate solution. If not, returning this case and looking for a new favorite case manufacturer.

    Callers can’t here you with this case, you either need earphones on or loudspeaker for them their clearly. The silent switch is difficult to access, if you don’t have nails then a pencil will be required. The clasp gives up after 4 months and falls off. Not worth the money

    Callers can't hear me

    • Written by Cathy G from Reno

    First and last time I buy a Tech21 case (recommended to me at the Apple Store when I purchased my iphone 8).

    My two main issues:

    1) Callers can barely hear me when I have the case on my phone - I sound muffled - like I'm in a tunnel. When I take the case off, callers can hear me perfectly.

    2) It's hard to get the power button to work when the case is on.

    These are two basic functions that I'm surprised made it past any company's QA department.

    I have a message into Tech21 to see if they can either replace it with a different case that doesn't interfere with my iPhone's microphone, or if not, if I can return the case for a refund. Awaiting an answer.

    Do NOT buy this Case!

    • Written by p P from port talbot

    This has damaged the back of my iPhone 7plus cosmetically! I have not removed my case from my phone since the day of purchase back in Nov2016, I have removed the case for the first time I shockingly discovered the back of my phone has been covered in thousands of hexagons shapes that cannot be removed, You buy a case to protect your phone Not to Damage it! Thanks a bunch Tech21 for such a well built NON protective product.....

    Tech21 Evo Mesh Case for iPhone 7

    • Written by Stephen L from Epping

    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

    • Written by Margaret H from Solihull

    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

    • Written by Sankaja G from Box Hill

    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

    Tech 21's Design and Quality Control on the Decline

    • Written by John D from San Diego

    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.

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

    • Written by Jason R from Indian Land

    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.

    **** case

    • Written by Brett D from Brisbane

    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 ....

    • Written by HONG KHENG L from SYDNEY

    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.

    Button covers not well designed

    • Written by IAN H from Sydney

    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.

    Love Tech21, but this case is flawed

    • Written by Randy F from MOUNT PROSPECT

    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.
