    5s needs replacing due to unresponsive screen. I believe I will find the large screen of a plus model much easier to use. Favouring the 7 plus. But too big for trouser pocket so think the solution is holster or belt clip. Any advice on practicality and products please?

    Thank you both for replies.

    Cannot find sfbags for UK delivery, and the eBay item would have a delivery charge 3 times the purchase cost!

    These are difficult items to evaluate online so I have ordered a number of items from Amazon UK with the intention of returning nearly all of them - but I hope not all of them!

    This has been my setup since the iPhone 6. Works great for me. I got mine through amazon but you can also buy through seidio directly.

    Try PDAir. I've had great luck with their leather belt clip cases.

    Thanks. Looks like a big range, but perhaps due to variety of colours. Look quite promising. I will use my Amazon try-outs to establish whether I will be more comfortable with the phone horizontal or vertical.

    Otterbox damaged my screen with a permanent blemish.

    SF Bags does deliver to the UK. I've ordered several items from them in the past for delivery here to the UK. They're reliable and have good quality products.

    Again, thanks. This is where I have got to.

    1. Kept. Sprigen air cushion bumper case. My first ever iPhone case. Previously preferred to avoid any extra bulk or weight but as this phone will no longer be kept in pocket and is expensive, best to offer a little protection. Very pleased with it, but cannot say that I have really compared with others.

    2. Kept. Hengying belt clip pouch. Perfect for me. Light, no unnecessary bulk, does not dig in me, feels sufficiently protective for my purposes and sufficiently secure on belt. It is light enough to leave fairly continuously on the belt but can also be attached while wearing the belt. Other people may consider that it does not look smart enough.

    3. Kept. Hengying leather holster. Looks smarter than the pouch and can also hold other items such as credit cards. But inevitably a bit bulkier and cannot be attached with belt in situ. Also, as seller warns, a rather tight fit with my bumper case.

    4. Returned. Innext pouch case. Functionally equivalent to 2. Looks neater and probably offers more protection. But it is stiffer and I found the metal belt clip uncomfortable.

    5. Returned. I-Blason Armorbox. Looks like it would offer huge protection but too industrial and overkill for my needs.
