Buying an iPhone 7 can create a dent in your pocket. If you’re going for the iPhone 7 Plus, it’ll be a bigger dent. But ensuring proper protection is even more important as a broken display or damaged motherboard can cost a fortune. For the best protection, usability and looks, I’ve selected seven best cases for iPhone 7 which are also available for the iPhone 7 Plus. Some of these cases are made of materials that you’d never expect. There’s the usual hard case, followed by wood and even marble.
Apple iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case
The first one on the list is by Apple themselves. The newer iPhones come with larger batteries compared to their predecessors. But this is nowhere near the capacities seen on Android devices which come with mammoth batteries. The Smart Battery Case is one of the best iPhone 7 cases, but it comes with a hefty price tag just like all Apple products. If you need the extra juice, then this one is definitely for you. It can extend battery life by a few hours and this can turn out to be a life saver for some. It does add some bulk to your phone which can be a bit of a nuisance.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen is well known for their cases and the Rugged Armor has been one of the best-selling cases for iPhones. It is the same case with the Rugged Armor for the iPhone 7 as well. It comes with their famous air-cushion technology to absorb shocks and fits extremely well on the phone. The case is made of TPU and the whole case is fingerprint resistant which is especially good for the Jet Black variant of the iPhone 7. It makes the phone slightly thicker but it is much easier to hold the phone with this case than without it.
The UAG Monarch is another rugged case that looks like it has been inspired from the Transformers movie. It consists of five different layers for the best possible protection and it even meets two military standards for drop tests. The honeycomb pattern on the sides provides ample grip. But this case is slightly bulky and is not meant for those looking for a compact case. UAG Monarch is available in a mind blowing 16 different colors which include Black, Cobalt, Magnum, Platinum and more.
Native Union CLIC Marble Case
When I said that there is a case made of marble, I did not mean marble print on a TPU case. I meant actual marble. Native Union can be proud of the fact that they are the first ones to make a marble phone case. It is one of the best iPhone 7 cases that you can get, just because of the fact that it is made of marble. It is not every day that you see a marble case and the world’s best smartphone deserves all the luxury that it can get.
NeWisdom Wooden Case
If the marble case impressed you, then this one would too. The NeWisdom Wooden Case for the iPhone 7 consists of a soft TPU layer which is covered with a layer of genuine natural wood. This case needs some extra taking care of as the natural wooden layer can break easily if the case is bent too hard. It is not meant for extreme protection and should be bought only if you are into classy looks. The fact that the wood grain will be different in each case is awesome because there will be only one case with a specific pattern.
Don’t like bulky cases? Then the Caudabe Veil is just the one for you. It is the thinnest case that you can find in the market right now. It will not ensure protection that the UAG Monarch or Spigen Rugged Armor provides, but will be good enough to withstand scratches and minor bumps. The case has a matte black finish and the micro-etched rear side provides enough grip on the phone. Caudabe Veil is available in Stealth Black and Frost White and I personally love the white case.
Silk Grip Case
The Grip Case from Silk is made of a patent pending material and one closer look at the case will remind you of the texture on the OnePlus. There are air-cushion pockets on the corners just like Spigen cases which will ensure substantial amount of protection from shocks. This case doesn’t have cutouts for the buttons but it provides an amazing tactile response. Silk Grip Case is available in 4 different colors – Black Onyx, Blue Jade, Gunmetal Grey and Purple Orchid.
