    I know I'm not the only one who seems to be addicted to iPhone cases. I only have three at the moment (with two cheap eBay ones on the way from China) but I'm always scouting for more too. How many do you currently own and which ones are they? Which one is your current favorite/daily driver?

    I'm more of a minimalist case guy myself. I currently own:

    iPhone 7 Plus Case, ACEPower Premium Clear Flexible Soft TPU Slim Case for iPhone 7 Plus 2016 - 0.4mm Extremely Thin - Ultra Clear Flexible Soft TPU / Extra Grip - Proof Bumper Cases (Ultra Clear) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LC4BWBI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_S9z8xbE1H6HNR

    Thoughts: Very thin and grippy. Seems to showcase the iPhone pretty well, but I wish it had more of a clear, matte finish. Usually not a big fan of the completely clear skins as sometimes I think they look cheap so I don't use this one as much. Still good quality for a good price though.

    iPhone 7 Plus Case, [Scratch Resistant] i-BlasonClear [Halo Series] for Apple iPhone 7 Plus Cover 2016 Release (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KIPB9GU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_k-z8xb5SPQMQ5

    Thoughts: This was my daily driver up until recently. The glossy black border complements the black face really well and it looks very sleek. Nice and thin, but I also feel like it adds some decent (better than nothing) slim protection. The clear back is nice and showcases the iPhone well, but the glossy plastic makes the matte black a lot lighter so I wish it was clear but more matte.

    TOZO Case for iPhone 7 Plus, PP [0.35mm] Ultra-Thin / Slim [Perfect Fit] Thinnest Hard Protect Case Back Cover Bumper [Semi-transparent] Lightweight for iPhone 7 Plus 5.5 inch. [Matte black] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M0I7CR9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_F-z8xbPG3TBCK

    Thoughts: Current daily driver. One of the thinnest cases out there and I believe it's a much better value than Peel or Caudabe; doesn't even have a logo on it, which cannot be said about the latter. I wish it was more see-through so I could see the Apple logo more, but I do like the dark, matte color and feel like it complements the matte black iPhone well. The cutouts are great and inline with everything. The case is still pretty slippery since it has a matte texture. No major complaints.


    Note: I received these cases at no discount whatsoever for my honest review. Fear not, for I have purchased these as a normal consumer not swayed by free stuff.

    Cases, no idea. This is just my 6S+ collection. Cases from $1 section on eBay to ~$100 cases. My favorite... that's so hard to answer. Depends on where I'm going and what I'm up to.

    Damn. What do you do with all of those when you sell your old phone?

    Will your 7 collection be just as large? I wouldn't know what to do with that many..

    Not sure what I'm going to do with them. Selling them is a PITA as not worth a LOT and I don't really have time to deal with post office shipping etc. Usually just keep em around and give them away as friends/family need them. Have my 6 still and have quite a few cases for it around still. I've debated selling them this go around to partially buy a 7 though lol

    If I get a iPhone 7+ and end up with this many cases again my wife is going to murder me though so maybe not so many next time haha

    Actually, I think it's a disorder.:) I'm not even going to count how many cases I have for my 5s. Everytime we go in to a department store my wife will find me looking at cellphone cases and she will just say, "really?" I mean, you can only have one on your phone at a time. But, if I find them discounted on a close out sale, I'm hooked.:(
