    Just received this case from Amazon (https://amzn.com/B01JORFOEQ), and it's pretty much as described. Super thin (.3mm) - won't be providing much protection other than from scratches, which is exactly why I ordered it. I'm very happy.

    How is the grip compared to the naked iPhone?

    Nearly identical, for the black iPhone 7

    -How's grip? More or less than no case?
    -is it a soft flexible materiel or stiff (will it crease if bent)?

    I like the look a lot. Will go perfect with an e2e screen protector. Can't decide if I want solid black or frost for my matte black phone.

    The grip seems identical to the naked iPhone.
    The material is flexible, but I have a feeling it might crease if you went out of your way in trying to fold it while not on the phone.

    I'm really happy with this, especially for the price. I usually go "naked" with my phones but thought I'd give something like this a shot. I also have some cheap glass screen protectors sitting in the mailroom that I'll be applying tonight, also from Amazon.

    Just got this as well. The black looks really good on the matte color. Love that it's so small but have to keep in mind if it falls that it won't do much to protect the phone. I'd definitely like to see the frost case as well

    I'll take some pictures when mine arrives. The more I think about it the black might be the better one but we'll see.

    I will. Looks like it's to be delivered today.

    While I'm not sure it makes much a difference, Elago's website lists this case as being .3mm:

    Regardless, these cases aren't meant to provide much protection from anything other than scratches and maybe a few nicks here and there.

    Looks like it's gonna be a bit before I upload pics. The case they sent me didn't fit. Oddly it fit fine in all the places that needed changed from the 6 to the 7. The problem was the case wouldn't fit on the device at all. One corner would not go on. It's just a bit to small. I emailed Elago and waiting on a response.

    Did the package include an insert explaining that they were made based on excpected dimensions?

    Mine is a tight fit, but it fit.

    Mine was a tight fit getting on as well and even harder to get off. The last couple corners to go in is what was hardest. I think it is that way because it "hugs" the phone around the curved edges and up against the screen.

    Lipless cases tend to be very hard to get on. And they're not meant to be taken off unless you want it to break or have stretch marks.

    I finally got it on but it's got a defect in the frosting that just absolutely makes it look bad. Not even worth the photos and the frost does not look that good. In fact it makes the thing look a dull gray on that back and totally frosted on the sides. And it's not fitting right.
