    Falling Apart

    I've been using the case for barely 6 months and it's beginning to fall apart. Truly disappointing. The rubber border is starting to separate from the "scratch-resistant" clear plastic back and the leather is starting to peel. Not recommended if you appreciate things that can last and still look good.

    Love it!

    Got a new iPhone 8 and invested in my first expensive (ish) case too, if you don’t care mind much about it being a bit more bulky certainly look at one of these, great protection around edges of screen, great protection for camera when flat on a surface, easy grip from the leather, the only downside for me is how difficult it is to remove from the phone but that just means it’s never gonna fly off if dropped! Really impressed with this case

    If you like to use your phone, don't buy this case

    Don't even think about using headphones with this case as it's impossible to plug them in. The buttons are difficult to push and sometimes the off button is pressed while inside the case. Major impairment of phone functions with this case.

    Scratches easily

    I bought this case from the Apple store less than 30 minutes ago. Had it either in my hands or my pocket. Only 30 minutes have passed, and the case is already scratched on the back. I’ve read some other review and it says the leather peels? Hasn’t happened for me yet (Has only been 30 mins though.) Great design as a throwback to the iPhone 2G! Protective, looks good, but scratches pretty easily.

    Scratched, dirty looking and cant return

    I was really excited to see that this case would show off the beauty of my phone and the description said it was scratch resistant but after 3 days, the case already looks scratched and dirty. I wanted to return it, but Apple states that its not eligable for return :(

    Great case, good price!

    I purchased this case in March 2017 when I bought a new Gold iPhone 7. I like that it showcases the color of my phone and is also sturdier than other clear cases available. So far, this case has done its job. It protects the phone well without being too bulky and impairing use of the phone. The only downside is that the clear panel does show scratches, although that's true of any clear case. But better the case than your phone! I'd recommend this case for anyone who is gentle with their phone but still wants some added protection.

    The perfect case for an iPhone 7

    Just upgraded from an iPhone 5C to a 7 so wanted to protect it. As I'd bought the limited edition red version I wanted to be able to see the colour so went for the Otterbox Statement cover which has the clear back to it. It's a classy product and I couldn't be more pleased with it.

    Great style, great protection!

    I really like this case, it seems well built and very protective not to mention super stylish, i feel really confident the case can protect the phone in the event of a fall. I've always lived otterbox products and im really happy they now have an exclusive case in the  Store! Will get the blue one soon!

    Good Looking Case, Scratches Easily, Leather Degrades Quickly

    I bought this case despite reading reviews that it scratches easily---the reviews were true. I absolutely love the design and feel of this case; however, despite being extremely cautious of where I placed my phone with this case on (because of the reviews I had read), a number of scratches and micro abrasions appeared within 48 hours of use in jean pocket and on tabletops. The leather began to degrade at the corners of the case, leaving me with a case that looks like a knockoff, not an OtterBox. Really disappointed and sadly I would not recommend this case if little details are meaningful to you.

    Nice case but not perfect

    I purchased this case with my iPhone 7. The case makes the phone feel very secure. It appears to be robust enough to withstand drops and falls.

    My only comment is the box said the plastic part was scratch resistant. I tested this and it is not. It does not withstand minor scratches caused by everyday items. But these scratches are only visible if you search for them in the right lighting.

    Pretty disappointed

    The case is far chunkier than I was expecting. I previously used one of Apple's own cases and loved the slimline design of that - this Otterbox case is definitely not slimline!! The biggest disappointment with this case is that it prevents me using my iPhone Lightning Dock. The bottom of the case is extremely thick and although my phone will sit on the dock, it is unable to charge due to the poor design of the case. The only way I can continue to use my Lighting Docks is to remove my phone from this case - kind of defeats the objective to having a case at all.

    Good solid protection but.........

    As mentioned good, wholesome protection BUT it was a bit of a job to insert my iPhone in and furthermore it was even more of a job getting back out.
    I had to really apply pressure to the corners of my iPhone to try to slide it in but it was a job I can tell you. It is OK if you have no intention of removing your iPhone & sim card - ever.
    As for buttons, well I have the impression that you have to press a bit harder than you should not to !!
    Overall good for protection for not so good for functionality !!!

    Rugged

    I recently upgraded from the very similar Speck "Gemshell" case to the Otterbox Statement Series Case and was immediately impressed. It's important to note that there is a price difference of 20 dollars between the two products and in comparison, this Case is better constructed, looks great, and is slightly thicker than my former choice of case, offering an even more respectable amount of protection. With this case on my phone, my device feels rugged and durable, and I'm confident that my phone is thoroughly protected against the hazards (for lack of a better term) of everyday life. Additionally, the leather accent is a nice touch; the matte black finish looks very sharp in contrast to my iPhone's jet black finish. The only personal gripe I have is this: being a clear case, any bit of dust and such caught between the case and the phone is highly visible and very unsightly. However, this is to be expected as it's the "nature of the beast" when it comes to any clear case. All in all, I'm satisfied with this product, and with that in mind, I have no problem with the extra 20 dollars I spent on this case. Two thumbs up folks.

    Almost a 5

    I've had this case for a little over two months and it's really strong and provides fantastic protection for my phone. Given I am a painter and my hands get oil paint on them quite often but I still have to handle my phone the case protects the phone excellently and the oil paint cannot stick and stain the case. The only downside is the the leather begins to pill off on some areas but even then it doesn't affect the protection rendered by the case but it begins to look ugly.

    its a Otterbox

    If you want very good protection Oterrbox delivers, Its size is why it delivers. If you want something that just gives you normal protection and is slim then this might not be for you.

    Never again

    I've bought this case earlier today. I literally put it in my jeans pocket at the store and took it out 20 mins later, at home. The leather already started to peel off not only at one corner but right at two corners. What's even worse, it's exactly at the place where my finger and palm are, so it's pinching into my skin. I strongly discourage from buying it. One star only because it's mandatory

    Great Case!!!

    I waited a month before writing my review because I wanted to compare this case honestly to the previous reviews. This case looks so good on my jet black iPhone 7. It gives adequate protection while still staying slim enough to be comfortable in my pocket. Now to address the two main gripes of previous reviewers. First the "scratching" issue. After a month of normal use my case has two very minor scratches on the back, they are the type where you have to turn the case into the proper lighting just to see them! Second the leather part bubbling or peeling off. Because I knew of this issue I used a leather sealing product to waterproof the small piece. I'm very happy with the Otterbox and I would recommend it if you want to see that beautiful jet black finish while staying protected from drops!

    Not impressed!

    What a shame, great new sleek, glossy iPhone, which is lightly and thinner, only to be ruined by a bulky, cheap looking case. Which adds a lot of weight and width to the phone. Definitely don't want it, nor would I recommend it. What a shame Apple let their new devices down, by not offering great accessories.

    Excellent case

    I purchased this case for the protection and stylish look. I use it with my Jet Black iPhone 7 and it looks great. I like that the case is clear and the leather gives it a classic look while offering enough protection. I am very happy with my purchase.
