    I know cases are probably pretty limited right now so it's going to be hard to find the perfect one. I was thinking maybe just a clear 3m wrap on the back to prevent scratches and also show the aesthetics of the phone off, with a tempered glass screen protector, that way its fully protected and I don't have to deal with cases completely or having to worry about dust building up underneath and scratching my phone. What is everyone else doing?

    Spigen Slim Armor is my go-to; they haven't failed me yet!

    I have about 15 or so cases being shipped to me for review, so hopefully I find something I like.

    Bought a Spigen Rugged Armor on Amazon for $13 bucks.

    Man, all I need now is a balaclava.

    I bought the Tech21 Evo Mesh cash for my 7 Plus, but the cool new black/white version that is apparently exclusive to the Apple Store. I have one on my 6S right now and I love it. However, there's also a really cool Otterbox exclusive on the Apple Store that has a clear back with leather on the bottom half/quarter of the phone that looks really nice. I was contemplating that one, but went with the EvoMesh.

    Just bought the same, $12 bucks on amazon, comes in stock the 13th, just in time for my phone to be here on the 23rd hopefully... On top of that I bought a tempered glass screen protector too, and might be considering a clear rear wrap from slickwraps too

    I preordered a 7 plus for delivery in the 16th. I ordered a spigen tough armor on eBay for $15.95 shipped and it also says delivery by the 16th. Phone and case are standard black.

    I'm very particular when it comes to cases so when the phone first launches, I just buy a cheap clear $10 case until one comes out that I like. I have amazon prime so it comes in 2 days from china.

    Gonna take my Dremel to my stack of two year old 6+ cases that were (for some reason) in a compartment in my car.

    6+ to 6S to 7+ it's a rollercoaster!

    I ordered a Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear. Hopefully it will be enough for the 7+ Jet Black.

    They make good quality cases. Not sure where you got that idea from.

    well, i guess i always thought they were brittle plastic and the prices are cheap so i figured they were junk.

    You've got to be careful with Spigen. There are knockoff ones out there. If you don't know what an actual spigen case is like the knockoffs seems like the real deal but are junk. I got one once unknowingly and having owned a real one I knew as soon as I tried putting it on my phone that something wasn't right. At home in a drawer I have a spigen tough armor that I had on my iPhone 5 and my 5s then it spent a year on my wife's 5. In 3 years of hard use its still in great shape and never let any damage happen to any of the 3 phones it protected.

    I think I need two cases. I'm in a bit of a situation. What I would really like is a wallet case that works with one of those belt clips or a good car mount.

    Essentially, I want to dash mount my phone to my forklift, so it needs to be sturdy.

    When I preordered, I just got cases from apple. Midnight Blue leather and White silicone for my 7+. I'll get a Spigne down the road. :)

    Can anyone comment on Spigen vs. Ringke and which clear case might work best for Jet Black?

    I'll most likely get the Otterbox Statement Series for my 7+

    They are good quality products. I've been using their products since the iPhone 5 and they've never given me any problems.
