I created this thread back when the iPhone 6 came out and now I decided to create another one with the 7/7+ out. So far I have two apple silicone cases and a caseology case, and am looking for more out there. I know, I have a problem. I can't be the only one, right? Share the cases you currently have for your phone.

How do you like the spigen ultra hybrid? I used it the rose gold one bordered one with my 6S and it was slippery.

its a good case if you're on a budget but the cleared back was becoming an eye sored because there were tons of scratches on it. It seems thinner to me compared to the all clear version that I had for my 6

Vest anti-radiation case has been the best case I've ever owned. The quality and the feel of the material are outstanding. It holds up fantastically well and it also blocks radiation which is originally why I bought it, but the case is so good that I would definitely buy it again.

I was curious. What is the grip like on the jet black ringke slim? I have the matte version and the grip is great but I really want the jet black to match my jet black iphone. Thanks!

I wouldn't recommend it. The case is a finger print magnet and really looks bad with all the prints. It just looks dirty. I haven't used it just for these reasons.

UAG Matte Black
Apple Leather Midnight Blue
Sena Ultra Slim Sleeve
Mophie Wireless Charging case for 6S modified to fit my 7

Wow, I thought I was a case hound, but most of you have me beat. So far I have 3 and here are my takes....

My newest case is the Anker SlimShell Pro. I am an Anker PowerUser and they sent it to me free to try. It's a slim fit TPU case with a "leather" backing. It costs $15.99 on Amazon. For what it is, it does the job if you are looking for a slim fit case that has a dressier look but you don't want to spend the money on leather or like the look of the wear and tear leather gets over time. It feels good to the hand, though not leather like. It does have some grip due to the texture. There is no lip around the screen so there is no protection at all if you lay the phone screen down, and if you drop it, you are probably going to see a crack. The button covers work well and do not delay or impede the actual functioning of the buttons. The charging port cutout should handle almost any cable out there, and the speaker holes line up precisely with the grills on the phone. The back of the case is just thick enough to keep the camera lens off a flat surface. All in all, it's nice case, but I think it's more of a $9.99 case rather than the $15.99 price point. Pics below...

[doublepost=1479151226][/doublepost]also have a Caseology Titan in Matte Black. I got one of these for my son, and then ended up getting one for myself for those time when I am out and might need a bit more ruggedness. It's got a two piece design kind of like the Otterbox Commuter. Not quite as thick on the plastic back as the Commuter but still good for most situations. The matte black goes really well with my matte black 7 and the 2 piece design allows me to slip the metal plate from my magnetic car mount in between the two case pieces without it touching my phone. And there is a nice lip around the screen to protect from drops and from being laid screen side down on a flat surface. The case has small ridges at 3 corners and at the camera cut out that help lift it off a flat surface. The cutout for the charger should handle anything thrown at it as well. And, the button feel on this is spot on. All in all, it's a great value for $15.99 on Amazon and a good alternative to those who are considering the Commuter case. Especially given the difference in price. Pics are below...

And my last case is a Spigen Neo Hybrid case. It was the first case I got. Thin fit case, with hard bumper. The backing is black with a carbon fiber pattern and the bumper is a hard gun metal color. The case feels a bit slick in the hand to me, but the thinness makes otherwise easy to handle. In fact, it kind of makes the phone and the case look like one piece. The cutout for the camera is raised and protects the lens when the phone is on a flat surface. And, the charging port cutout is plenty big as well. There is a small bit of a lip around the screen that offers some protection of laid down screen side. The bumper fits around the button covers and provides nice contrast between the black button covers and the gun metal bumper color. The speaker cutouts are precise too. I like the sleek look to this case. It provides a higher level of protection than your average slim fit case but still keeps that slim look. For $14.99 on Amazon, this is good deal in my book. Pics are below....(you'll have to excuse my Pirate logo on the back...)

This is totally me!! I had 15 cases for my iPhone 6 Plus and now my family is secretly loving the fact that I upgraded because now they have my 15 cases LOL.

Trying to be responsible with my 7 Plus since I know I will upgrade next year and be in the same boat I'm in with all my 6 Plus cases.

Currently I have 3 for my 7 Plus:

Apple Leather (saddle brown)

Kate Spade Wrap Case (black and gold)

Tech21 Evo Mesh (black)

And when released I will be getting the mophie battery case.
