    White case turned red after 3weeks

    • Written by Madeleine J from San Diego

    I had a tech21 for my 5s and loved it, so when I upgraded to a 6s about a month ago I decided to get another of the same case. Sure it’s a great case that does a decent job protecting my phone, but after like two weeks it started turning pink. I thought maybe something somehow got underneath the case, but it only appears discolored on the outside. It’s been like 5-6 weeks now and my once completely white case is now.....RED. I’m definitely not happy about it. If I wanted a red case I would have gotten one, and I’m only this upset because of how pricey these cases are.

    I bought the white Tech21 case about 2 months ago and it’s already turning into a yellow brown color. Case is very overpriced for the quality of the case. Will never buy again!

    ugly color change

    • Written by Mairone A from Minneapolis

    C'mon now Apple I didn't shell out all this money for a case that would change a nasty brown color after only 2 months of use. I am going to have to demand a refund cause I specifically looked for a clear and white case that would not do this after small time of use. Not a happy customer.

    Absolutely Horrible

    • Written by Jenia N from Orlando

    This has got to be the WORST case I have ever had in my cell phone life! I admit I drop my phone but this case was presented to me at the Apple Store as one that was designed to absorb impact when dropped. The first time I dropped my phone after I bought it the screen cracked. I got my screen fixed and dropped it again sometime later and the screen is now popped out on the side. I'm almost certain apple will not give me a new phone. With this case it's only a matter of time before the whole phone is destroyed. I should have stuck with the chunky otter box. At least then I know for certain my phone is safe. Don't buy this case. It's cute and trendy but cute, trendy, and cracked is not a good look. They should recall all these cases and look at the design and hardware again seriously.

    Very disappointed customer

    Problem with plastic insert around camera/Light opening

    • Written by Warren B from Lower Waterford

    I've bought three tech21 cases for my and my wife's iPhones. The plastic insert around the camera and light opening has fallen out on every one of them and cannot, at least by me, be successfully reinserted. Bad flaw in an otherwise really nice iPhone case

    Love tech21

    • Written by Alexandra C from Warren

    Guys, I have been buying tech 21 for long time, either for my iPad and iPhone.
    I can say that it is the best case ever and also it is very beautiful.
    I know many people now are complaining about the case changing the color and it happened to me as well. However, I decided to write for them in order to try to fix the problem.
    They offer me another one free and also I could explain what is happening. They were very professional and they answered the same day offering me another one. By the way, I wrote on Saturday. They asked me about my receipt and a picture showing the problem. In five minutes they wrote me back sending me the tracking number.
    I really hope they can fix the problem in the future because I really really love tech21. It isn't heavy and it is beautiful.
    My cell phone and iPad fell several times and they have never broken.
    Let's cross our finger that they are gonna fix the problem. Until there, we can ask for our warranty.

    Changed color

    • Written by Peter S from Cincinnati

    Loved the case feel and functionality. BUT after about six weeks my white case changed color to a ugly light blue. I see I'm not the only one with this issue, will Apple provide a refund?

    Durable, thin, and really works but loses its color

    • Written by April C from Greenwich

    I love these cases!! I have the blue and white one. They really protect your phone and it is not bulky. I am giving this case 4 stars because I don't like the fact that the color loses its brightness. Over time the clear plastic turns a yellowish color and I have only had this case for 2 months. I love the case because it protects my phone but it would be nice if the color stayed as if I just bought it. But, other than that I would recommend this case to anyone who needs a protective case for falls.

    I loved this case when I first purchased it, but after only 2 months, it went from being white to a dingy, dirty gray color. I've tried everything in an attempt to clean it, but nothing works. It's trash.

    Absolutely no protection value

    • Written by Steven H from Concord

    This case is good for nothing but protecting the casing of your phone from scratches. It has no impact protection. If you drop your phone at all on any service and no matter how it lands if you don't have a seperate protector (one of the expensive screen protectors) this case will not prevent the screen from cracking due to the impact of the fall. These cases are attractive because of the sleekness and aethetics of how they look but they are completely useless for anything other the protecting the back of your phone from scratches. The design does nothing to protect the camera or the screen in any way. It does not absorb any shock from drops to prevent screen cracking or damage from impact to your phone. Completely useless case.

    Looks Good When New. Looks Bad After 3 Months. Don't Buy!

    • Written by Giles B from Guildford

    I bought a white one for my iPhone SE which looked great when it was new but after 3 months it started to turn a clotted cream colour. Now, 10 months on, it looks horrible. I keep my stuff immaculate so I'm very unhappy. Judging by most of the reviews this happens to everyone's case which means that it is not 'fit for purpose' as no one would buy it if they knew if was going to change colour. It's appalling that there hasn't been a recall. Everyone should get their money back. Apple - you should allow zero stars, not a minimum of 1 star. Don't buy.

    White/clear case turned blue!

    • Written by Carolyn S from Jersey City

    I liked this minimalistic case, but it has now turned quite noticeably blue around the outside edges, while the clear mesh on the back has greenish splotches. I don't like this at all and could not recommend this product. Mine is for the iPhone 7.

    Great protection but changes color after 2 months

    • Written by Nika M from Renton

    I don't recommend this product! This case is great for protecting your iPhone but it changes color after a really short period of time and washing it wouldn't change the weird yellow coloring it gets. I also asked my 2 other friends who had the same case as mine and their cases also turned yellow as well. The little rubber around the camera also came off for my case after 6 months which was very weird.

    One complaint

    • Written by caroline G from los angeles

    So I bought this case because I didn't want to deal with shattering my screen again, and honestly if you can overlook the color going brown-ish well into owning it I think it's worth the price. I don't have a screen protector and have dropped my phone numerous times on it's side, back, etc. and no problems. I sometimes hold my ID or like $20 dollars inside it when I don't have anywhere else to put it, and you can still see through the rusty color. It doesn't bother me, but I don't think I'd get the clear case again. I have a friend with one in blue and although it's hardly translucent, it's better than this brown color. It just looks old and dirty after a while, but if the 15/20$+shipping buts you back it's not worth fussing over, Good case over all.

    Don't buy it!

    • Written by Sarah S

    Bought this case about a month ago in white because the lady at the apply store told me it's the best case you can buy to protect the screen from smashing. 1 month later my phone is smashed again after a small drop that landed on its back. The white case also turned an ugly brown colour that looks horrible. Would never purchase again and will try my luck of getting it refunded from the Apple Store that I bought it from. Not worth the price!!!

    functional but turns ugly fast

    • Written by Elizabeth S from baltimore

    I've owned this case for approximately 7 months now. In practical terms, it's done its job well. I've dropped it a few times on my tiled kitchen floor (eek!) and it's been fine. However, it turned into a really ugly brown/beige color after about 3-4 months. I almost wouldn't mind it that much if the color was evenly distributed, but it's more like blotchy patches (which makes it really obvious it's just dirty). I've kept it just because a. it works, and b. i'm too lazy to try other brands. I recently tried to contact Tech 21 because they have a warranty on their products but they replied saying they consider this discoloration to be "wear and tear" and is not covered (LAME). I probably will not buy another of this brand but for now it does the trick.

    Can't Believe It

    • Written by Alexander H from Columbus

    A fall less than 21 inches from a chair onto a laminate floor covering wood not concrete and lands on the corner of the case shattered the whole screen. When trying to fill out warrenty form the site says the inquiry is not recognized. What piece of junk now my phone is trashed and I have to get another one out of my own pocket
