    Yup. IMO those types of cases are not well suited for everyday carry. I settled on the FRĒ but I only use it when I'm going to some sort of water activity. For me daily carry is best suited for the Apple Leather or UAG Monarch/ Element Sector if extra protection is warranted.
    Yep your right, especially with the 7 plus, got it cheap might just hang onto it for beach/surfing.

    Well that just now, sold a 13" 16 MBPr last week and have a iPad pro 9.7 in transit

    How do you go with case returns bought from Apple online in US? Couple of times i got a case and decided to return, i ring to arrange pickup and they just say don't worry keep it and they do a refund.

    In my city of 60,000 the only Apple leather case you can buy in a store is only ever Black, we have a Apple re seller/service store but its pretty hopeless for accessories, and 2 other stores that sells everything electrical but are also a Apple re seller, but the same hardly any Genuine accessories. They do have monthly or so 10% off macs though but you don't get the 14 days return policy unless its faulty.

    Id go crazy! I have:
    3 Apple Stores
    3 Best Buys
    2 Best Buy Mobile
    and at least two each of the Big 4 carrier stores

    All 30 mins or closer to me. Maybe this is why I'm such a case junkie? Too much easy access? I don't know what I'd do where you live! Are you in a more rural area?

    Ever used an Otterbox? That's what it's like. A clear back Commuter with leather on the bottom.

    I'm still baffled at how long I wait to get Apple Silicone cases. They really are one of my absolute favorite cases. I'm not sure when I'll get the review written, it won't be up until at least next week though when I get home and can take pics of it.

    Used my Metropolis all day today for the first time. Definitely has its pros and cons. Gorgeous looks. Love the screen protection. After switching back to the Monarch, my screen feels so exposed and naked. Super easy to get on and off.

    But... Not easy to use one handed. Super soft backing doesn't feel as protective as a Plasma or Monarch. And something about the magnet used to secure the flap just bothers me. Never been a fan of magnets near my electronic devices.

    I think I'll use the Pathfinder sometime soon. But for now, back to my Monarch.

    The defender is softer because of the rubber outer layer. The Statement is a very rigid plastic case that is a little rubberized so it's not too harsh in your hand. If there's an Apple Store near you, you could probably feel one for yourself. I personally don't buy Otterbox cases anymore simply because I don't care for how they feel.

    If I felt like dropping another $1,000 to get the red 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, I'd totally do it just for that case and color combination.

    But....$1,000. I already have a 256GB matte black 7+. I'd rather purchase other things.
