    had the 7 one, was just an oval cutout unlike 7+ that has precise cut out and then separate one for mic and flash,

    impressed! the 'texture' back is really subtle too, its thin, and has a front lip

    especially for 11.99 (and i think 9.99 for 7 version) on amazon

    made in Korea too, interesting tidbit (says on back of box)

    the only drawback really, aside from not being super grippy but grippy enough as it looks, is that the inside pattern makes a temporary impression on the back of my matte phone and likely any other phone, but with some saliva and soft rub its gone and not anything to be worried about long term damage, literally just the pattern you can see it on the phone from the grooves and stuff

    Looks good. I'm assuming it's the Jet Black your covering?

    matte black, the cutout around camera is glossy to give it a bit of a JB feel though, i think in contrast with the matte case, it has a nice look-- i see why you guessed that

    Nice. I would have chosen matte black as well. How are you liking it up to this point?

    I also ordered this case, which will be arriving this afternoon. Love how it looks.

    Is it thick enough to protect the camera?

    For sure! barring some resprings (crashes) on 10.1 beta since i picked mine up after the release of 10.1 for portrait beta , its been pretty sweet and impressive results for beta1 with bokeh narrow depth of field looking photos,

    i like the changes from 6s+, better cam and two cameras, and impressive front facing, great speakers compared to 6s+ which was a regression acoustically from 6+ for me, the earpiece feels a lot more full while on calls, cooler color hated space grey, battery i cant tell much one way or another but thats not bad and i like the screen a lot, i got a good one

    i wish it was jailbroken, but i have an SE jailbroken on 9.3.3 (and my pro 9.7 too)

    3gb of ram and waterproof are good for peace of mind, too

    and the case, i like that too! haha

    it is slightly elevated from where the camera bump is, yep!

    I have the 4.7 iPhone 7 in silver and am awaiting the 7 Plus in Gold. The stereo speakers is a huge improvement and ingenious.

    I'm excited for the new camera update arriving this year. And yes, the screen looks very well done. Hopefully won't be experiencing any coil hissing. Sounds like this was in the first models released.

    Any comparisons to Apples leather case in terms of thickness?

    Looks like the Neo Hybrid without the plastic frame

    I have the 7 version, wish the cutout was like the 7 Plus but doesn't really bother me lol, great full coverage case though.

    Thanks for the pic, i have the iphone 7 plus black apple leather case but the open bottom is really worrying me, i mean if i was to drop the phone on an uneven surface like concrete it will dent the bottom of the phone without a doubt, i think im going to return the apple case and maybe buy this liquid armor instead so it will protect the phone all around,

    hows the grip on the case? any other alternative cases you considered before getting the liquid armor?

    I also have a see through back jetech case with grey sides that gives a JB look a bit too on the sides, and is more grippy, but prone to smudges easily.

    I didn't do a ton of research just went with what looked both cheap and good

    Just for reference I returned my £45 apple leather case for the £7 Spigen liquid armor (what I paid at the time) and I could not be happier.

    I noticed this last night. Dunno what the deal is but all spigen cases are showing unavailable. Sucks bc I've had a couple in my cart for two weeks and should have just ordered them. You can check out the spigen website, they are way expensive there tho compared to amazon. Maybe try eBay??

    I did find a coupon tho. If you order directly through spigen here is a 25% off code. 25IPH7
    Edit: looks like they are on back order from spigen also. Bummer.

    Also might be nice for them as it may be cannibalizing sales of their cases most of which that cost 2x or more than this one.

    Bad for customers though

    Amazon UK used to have all the spigen cases but a lot are no longer available on prime at the original prices. Bought the cases (Ultra Hybrid and Liquid Armor) on eBay from the official spigen seller (spigenuk) for £8.99 each with 2-3 day delivery.

    Love both of those cases on my black iPhone 7

    Just got the case for my 7+. Looks awesome. However, the grip is very bad. I thought it would be much more grippy from the pics, but it isn't at all. I never drop phones, but I probably will with this case. Would be a great case for the iPhone 7 tho.

    Been using my liquid armour for the last few days. Definitely one of the best slim cases for 7 plus so far. I have 2 other cases the speck presidio grip and apple silicone and the liquid armour is my daily driver.

    Have been using this case as well as the black apple leather case. Long story short, the apple case is going back and the liquid armor has become my daily driver. The fit is near perfect and it's compact. My only minor concern is whether or not the flash will be affected as it is noticeably recessed with the case on.
