    What would you consider a cheap case?

    You said the key word, preference. Personally I prefer protection over style. I can generally find what I want at a price that some would consider cheap (under $25) that looks good.
    The conversation was speaking of cases less than $20. Since it wasn't my convo (I was ear hustling lol) I didn't interject. My 7 plus is usually naked so this really has nothing to do with me lol...I was just curious. The only case I have for this one is the Storm Grey  Leather & I bought it because grey is my fave color.

    I know everyone seems to love the uag cases but...wow are they ugly.
    Yeah I tried it and it's so not me. I like the  leather cases but my favorite case is my Swarovski otterbox case. By far!

    +1. I don't like the look either. It certainly doesn't match my personality

    Ugly isn't really the right word though. UAG is just more utilitarian, not quite as flashy. I like it for the change of pace.

    You're right, ugly isn't really the right word. I just don't find the UAG cases appealing to me.

    Apple Berry Leather and new Red iPhone = Not so hot. What do you think about the white silicone on the new red iPhone?

    No offense to you, but that was the most irritating and annoying unboxing video I have ever seen.

    I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I think the Monarch and Metropolis are great looking. Some of the best looking cases available, period.

    The Pathfinder is still nice, but looks noticeably cheaper than the Monarch and Metro. The Plasma... it REALLY depends on the color. But to me the Plasma and Trooper are the worst looking of the bunch. I have no interest in buying the Trooper. And I'll likely be selling or trading my Plasma.

    I'd venture to say most of the people who don't like the UAG style are female as the design is fairly rugged/masculine. Not to say it's completely that way but I'd bet the percentages skew towards the tougher type digging the militaristic look of it.

    I love it but I also have a few more streamlined and/or elegant solutions depending on the occasion. As an example I'm wearing a suit today so I'm using my Vaja leather as the UAG Monarch would look out of place IMO.

    As for protection or presentation, it too depends on the occasion. Sometimes my primary objective is protection, sometimes it's presentation hence the wide variety in my collection.

    I'm not sure about most, but this US Marine (and trust me I've seen my share of ruggedness), don't care for the UAG cases. To each his/her own, everyone has their own opinions and purchase what they choose.

    I almost bought a Note 7 right after they came out, but they didn't have the color I wanted. The next day the recall was announced.

    Question for all you case fanatics...if you buy cases for protection, why put a cheap case on the phone and then complain when it doesn't work? My friend was having a debate about this, so I'm curious.

    During my case addiction days, I bought cases only for the look and style of them not really for protection & I would never put a cheap case on any of my phones. That was my preference!
    If I want to protect my phone, I won't get a cheap case for it, haha

    I bought one for $600 new/sealed off gumtree, was going to use it then decided to sell and it sold the same day on eBay for $950, the first recall happened 3 days later while it was in transit, buyer left a good review.
