The Elago looks sexier. Any case that has a precise cutout for camera and flash looks better than a single cutout for both. Shows how much care went into the design!

Just got my Orzly Flexislim (Semi Transparent BLACK). I don't think it's a very good look on the matte black phone.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried the Peel case for the iPhone 7/7 Plus? I don't know if their pretty website is getting me, but it looks like a very nice case.

I had one for the iPhone 6 Plus, got dirty pretty quick

I don't have one, but the Caudabe "The Veil XT" looks really nice.

Got my Veil XT and it fits immaculately. Cutouts are seriously on point. It's not as slippery as it used to be - seems like they improved the feel.

This is just a holdover until the Caudabe Sheath is released though. I got that on my 6S and it's just simply awesome. Best minimalist case that still actually protects.

The better grip will cause me to try. Thanks for posting.

I'm definitely a minimalist kind of guy, but I find the Apple silicone cases are less slippery than all the minimalist aftermarket cases I've used. I tend to carry my iPhone in a t-shirt pocket and everything but the silicone cases let the phone slip out if I lean over. Give me a grippy silicone case in the style/size of the Caudabe and I'm all over it.

I bought an Apple silicone case yesterday and it's much nicer than I expected. It's thin but very rigid, not just some floppy rubber thing like some other silicone cases. Plus I like the microfiber lining on the inside, and it has just enough of a lip to protect the screen.

For me, I think it's the perfect combination of protection and minimalism (yes, it's thicker than the super thin cases like that Caudabe "The Veil XT", but it's still minimalist in appearance).

After looking more closely at the Elago, I'm really liking the precise cutouts for the lens and flash.

Is the thickness/material like Caudabe's cases?

Would someone mind posting pics of just the case itself?

Thanks!

It is very similar to most of these very thin cases. I would say within .10mm of each other, which I think you couldn't tell apart in regard to that. I did consider the caudabe and the peel cases that they offer but considering this was less than $10 shipped I did not hesitate to order over the others.

Thanks for the info and the pic. I had a Caudabe and it was alright, but I'm feeling sold on these TPU cases.
If only I could find one with exact cutouts.

I personally don't think of them as a case(at least not drop protection wise) more so a skin. I don't prefer bulkier cases and these provide at least small protection when setting my phone down on a table or small scratches.
