We’ve rounded up and tested some bargain cases for the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. They range in price from $14.99 to $39.99. Each is available in multiple colors on Amazon. All three are solid cases that fit perfectly and will do a good job of protecting your new phone.
CM4 iPhone 7 Wallet Case - Q Card Case
The CM4 iPhone 7 Wallet Case – Q Card Case is the most deluxe and expensive of the bunch. The body of the case is a hard but soft to the touch rubber that gives you a good grip on a phone that can be slippery. The back is a faux leather with a single pocket that can hold a few credit cards and some paper money.
This is a fully protective case, and so it is somewhat bulky, though not unpleasantly so. The rubber extends all the way around the phone and has a slight lip over the screen, which protects the iPhone when you place it face down. There are precision cut-outs or button covers for the camera and every port, switch, and button. It all works correctly and the case fits perfectly. There is even a slot on one side where you can insert a credit card to use as a kickstand, perfect for viewing videos.
It comes in Black Onyx, Gunmetal Gray, Champagne Gold, and Rose Gold. Whether you get the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus size, the price is the same: $39.99.
Silk iPhone 7 Glitter Case
The Silk iPhone 7 Glitter Case adds protection and personality to your iPhone. The clear TPU – Thermoplastic Polyurethane – covers the iPhone all the way around and there is a lip over the screen for face-down protection. The TPU features embedded glitter, so it does not add any texture, nor is this case in danger of shedding glitter everywhere. I was sent a case in the color Champagne Gold, but I would have named it Gold, as the glitter is a warm yellow gold, not what I would consider a cooler-toned champagne.
Precision cut-outs and buttons keep your phone fully functional within the case. This is a medium thickness case; it doesn’t add much bulk, and yet the iPhone feels well-protected inside. It comes with a plastic dry-install screen protector.
The Silk iPhone 7 Glitter Case comes in Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Smoked Silver. The price is $14.99 for both the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. If you want the protection without the personality, i.e. clear TPU with no glitter, that will run you just $11.99.
Silk iPhone 7 Sofi Fashion Case
The Silk iPhone 7 Sofi Fashion Case is a slimmer design. It’s a hard plastic case with a textured outer layer covering most of it. The pebbled texture reminds me of an animal skin. Alas, it’s a faux leather. It has a soft satiny luster, but it’s not shiny or glittery. The inside of the case is a soft microfiber. Included is a plastic screen protector.
Unlike the other two, this slimmer case does not cover all the way around. There are large cutouts for the camera, as well as the side buttons and switch. The bottom is cut out, so there are no problems using the speakers and Lightning port. Still, the edges have a lip, so when you place your phone face down, the screen will not contact the surface. The iPhone is fully functional in this case, and it offers excellent protection with little bulk.
The Silk iPhone 7 Sofi Fashion Case comes in three colors, Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Black Onyx. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sizes run $14.99.
I have tested all of these cases while out and about, and I am comfortable trusting each one to protect my new iPhone 7. All of them are available in both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sizes for the same price.
