    So I need a case for my 7 plus and I want to get a spigen. Which of these three would be best?

    I have a reservation about each of these cases (not major, but enough to make the decision difficult)

    For the ultra hybrid, I'm afraid of dust getting behind the case and showing as well as it maybe being a fingerprint magnet

    For the liquid armor, I'm afraid of the camera enclosure affecting pictures (especially the flash)

    For the thin fit, it doesnt protect the top or bottom sides, which is a little concerning.

    I know this isn't one of your choices, but I got this one & no dust collects behind the case. I'm pleased with it!

    I usually rotate between the ultra hybrid and the liquid armour on my iPhone 7, both are great cases. Not a fan at all of the thin fit cases - I never really liked the exposed bottom on the apple leather cases so to have the top and bottom exposed is a no-no for me!

    Out of the two that I like, I tend to use the ultra hybrid (in black) more as it looks so good on my matte black 7 whilst exposing the rear design of the phone, despite the need for a wipe down every once in a while. I do find the lip of the liquid armour a little flimsier than the ultra hybrid, so I personally think that less dust can get into the ultra hybrid that way.

    A few more things that I like about the ultra hybrid is the cut out for the mute switch - I find its the PERFECT size for easy access and I can even use my thumb to toggle the switch, the buttons are slightly bigger on the UH case and a bit more responsive and the case in general is pretty snug on the phone, feels nice and solid!

    I got both those cases on eBay (UK) for £8.99 each which isn't too bad at all, but from what Ive heard recently, some of these cases especially in black are on back order.

    Hope this helps!

    Whether these videos I've just uploaded might be of some help:

    Liquid armor is awesome. Have it for my 7 plus. I love the fact that the camera, mic, and flash are all separate cutouts. I don't love that I cannot see any of the matte black phone I purchased.

    Ordered the Liquid Armor. Based on the comments here and review's on the internet i think i made a good choice.
    Also ordered the peel case. So now i'll have to wait for the phone (IP7+) and the cases.:)

    Isn't Liquid Armor TPU all over as well?

    The main differences between Liquid Armor and Liquid Crystal seem to be:
    1. Transparency on LC and opaque finish on LA
    2. Patterns on LA seem for grip
    3. LC has little notches on each corner to further protect the camera lens.
    4. Branding logo is more subtle on LC
    5. LC is slightly thinner (0.36" vs 0.38") and shorter (6.32" vs. 6.34").

    Every Spigen case I've gotten in the last 3 years has been free. They send me an email with a code and it makes it free... all they ask is for a nice review. Not happening anymore. Amazon just changed their policies to prohibit that. LOL

    I'm not a fan of Spigen anyhow. They love cases with big holes showing the apple logo, or cases that say spigen in big ugly letters, neither of which I like.

    I should've clarified, I meant clear TPU that yellows over time or simply looks ugly on the sides of a phone. I'm fine with opaque TPU.

    Does anyone have the thin fit? Does it have any lip on the front at all?

    I am using spigen neo hybird case for my iPhone 7 plus. The case is so slim and protective. If you like non bulky and slim case then go for it.

    I have had a Spigen hybrid for years (since the 5 came out). I've since upgraded all the way through to a 6S+ and when the 5SE came out I dug out my hybrid and gave it to my wife for her 5SE. I don't remember ever dropping my 5 and 5s on the corner but her 5SE fell out of her purse and there are huge cracks spiderwebbing away from one of the corners. I don't feel like giving Spigen another chance.

    Good post, based on some videos I ordered the Liquid Crystal for my 7Plus.

    It also helps that spigen have a nice discount running right now until the 21 Oct with code "25IPH7"
