How many times per day do you drop your phone? No matter how careful I am, I seem to drop a brand-new phone within days (if not hours) of purchasing it, but I’m always hesitant to put a case on it. The aesthetic design of the iPhone 7 looks great, while most cases don’t.
On the other hand, the protective qualities can negate any damage clumsy hands might inflict on the iPhone 7, and there are slim cases out there. Here are ten of the best iPhone 7 slim cases!
Otterbox has a long reputation of providing some of the strongest phone cases on the market. The Symmetry series is no different; these slim, attractive cases are designed with gravity in mind. They’ll protect your phone from falls, and the built-in padding will keep the internal components from being jostled too much. Their one-piece design and easy removal make them a great option for someone who may not need to use a case all the time.
Spigen’s phone case is designed with dual-bumpers to protect against falls and a rough-grip exterior that lends it a certain flair, as well as better grip. The design is minimalist; it appeals to those who prefer more low-key designs, opposed to flashy patterns and colors. The case is slim and fitted to the shape of your phone, so it won’t detract from the appeal of the phone itself.
The Tech 21 Evo is designed to be both slimmer and lighter than other phone cases. Not only will it weigh less, but it also comes in three separate colors: transparent, red, and black. Every case has a translucent quality to it that lends to the aesthetic appeal. Despite the thinness of the case, it’s protective qualities are on par with the others on this list; Tech 21 is so sure of the quality of this phone case that they provide a lifetime warranty for all users.
This is the most advanced case Ballistic has produced yet, and also the slimmest — the corner bumpers protect your phone against corner drops, while the raised edges protect the screen from damage and scratches. The case also has a laser-etched design that makes it look great without taking away from the protective appeal. The case is guaranteed to protect against drops from up to six feet, and because it only covers the corners of the phone, it is far less bulky than other options.
X-Doria produces premium luxury cases for phones, and their Defense Lux line is no exception. This case carries a higher price tag than most, but the production quality is undeniable. With up to six color options, you can select the pattern or color you want for your case. X-Doria boasts that all of its cases are military-grade, which means they’ve been designed to withstand any abuse you throw at them.
When I first saw the Wavelength, I immediately assumed it was a high-priced luxury item. It looks like the sort of case you’d see adorning Tony Stark’s phone, but it can be had for less than $20. A TPU sleeve combined with a bumper provide two different layers of drop protection, and an exterior coating on the case helps to prevent discoloration over time. This is the sort of case you could pull out during a business meeting without fear of embarrassment: slim, cool, professional.
The Krios is designed to maintain the look and feel of your iPhone while still providing the necessary protection it needs. Raised bezels protect the screen of the phone, while a TPU frame and a polycarbonate exterior protect against drops. On top of all of that, the Trident Krios is made entirely of environmentally friendly, biodegradable materials. It’s a great phone case for someone what wants to let the beauty of the phone’s design shine through.
It’s no surprise that Apple would design a case that perfectly fits their own device and enhances its aesthetics rather than taking away from them. The official case a variety of color options, and the polyurethane material protects your phone from unwanted scratches. The exterior is tough but the interior is made of microfiber. The cases will be available for purchase with your phone.
Iridescent Naked-Tough from Casemate
If the previous entries don’t seem flashy enough for you, this case will change all of that. The metallic sheen is almost pink and reflects light as effectively as a mirror. The case is accompanied by a one-year warranty, so if it breaks during that time (hopefully serving its purpose of protecting your phone), it can easily be replaced. The aesthetics of the Naked-Tough case are found in more than its color; the ultra-slim design gives it a narrow profile, while the metallic accents on the buttons make them easy to find when you need to adjust the volume.
Belkin is another company whose reputation precedes it. The SheerForce is designed to remain clear and translucent even after years of use. The buttons provide tactile feedback; no more worrying whether you actually pressed the button or not because of flimsy plastic, and the unique internal design traps air inside the case that provides shock protection should you ever drop your phone. A beveled edge is the final protective element that protects against tabletop surfaces and prevents you from scratching your phone.
The iPhone 7 is the most advanced smartphone on the market. Doesn’t it make sense to take a few extra steps to protect it and guarantee your phone remains operational (and nice to look at) for the next few years — or at least until the next version is released?
