    I'm not sure which one to get on my Jet Black 7 Plus. I really like the Air, however I'm not sure how noticeable the tiny dots all over the back will be. I really like the Fusion, but I'm not sure how bulky it'll be compared to the Air.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    I just received my Ringke Fusion for my Flat Black 7. I just tried it out on my 6s and it fits and covers very nicely. It even make my phone fell less bulky compared to the Spigen Tough Armor I'm currently using.

    Yeah, the Fusion is the one I ultimately ordered. I was really interested in the Air, but the "Dot Matrix Technology" they use on it kind of bugged me.

    @Wise87 Quick question as I didn't see them in the images, does the case still have a flap on the bottom to cover up the lightning port? I'd think it wouldn't be there anymore because of the water resistance, but just checking as all the previous cases did.

    No, the flap is no longer there which is the way I like it.

    @Kevsta26 what exactly don't you like about dot matrix? Is it just personal preference?

    @Wise87 I have both cases for ip6. The Fusion isnt that thick compared to the air, the borders have bumper kinda feature which adds the thickness. Both are great cases, just matter of preference.

    I use the air in clear on my ip6 and I love it. Think I want to get one for ip7 just not sure if there are better options other than Ringke. Anyone have other suggestions?

    I'd just prefer the back to be completely clear without any sort of texture. I know the dots probably aren't that noticeable but it's not as clear as the fusion. I was worried that the fusion is noticeably thicker than the Air and I wouldn't like it as I like it to be a slim a possible, but you said it's not that thick compared so that makes me feel better :rolleyes:

    @Kevsta26 I just received my two Spigen cases and prefer them over ringke. they are pretty much the same but Spigen build feels better IMO.

    I really wanted the Spigen Air Skin over anything, but the bad logo placement on the back drew me away, then I stumbled upon everyone buying Ringke on the forums and the Fusion was Amazon's #1 new release in cell phone cases so I said why not :p

    The Air Skin is sexy but it is not meant to be taken off ever unless you are replacing the case.
    I had one and it so such a precise tight fit that if you don't get it in right, it will damage the case cause it is so thing and rigid.
    If you take it out wrong, it will show nasty white plastic stretch marks like when you chew or stretch a coloured straw.

    I also bought the Ringke Air for the 7 Plus on a flash sale. It came in yesterday. The dot pattern isn't really noticeable unless you're looking for it. I would think it goes best with the jet black iphone since the dot pattern will prevent the case sticking to the phone creating that bubble/wet/rainbow effect we've seen with other users.
