    I've never been a fan of clear cases personally. This is partly the reason. And they always look cheap to me.

    Of course and over time it will get scratched, but 3 weeks in a store with a millions hands on it is a good idea of the phones scratch worthiness

    I'd personally disagree with that. Jeans are far harder on a phones casing than our hands. In and out of pants pockets, rubbing against lint while in those pockets or in and out of a purse is a more accurate test than a phone sitting on a display all day simply being touched. Just my opinion though. We've seen pictures of the Jet Black already scratched.

    Not to mention, like another post stated, once these phones show signs of damage, they are replaced. There's no way you know for sure if that's even the same phone that started out on that display.

    I'll post about it when the mail comes. I'm still shocked the USPS delivers on Sundays.

    Beyond the so called scratch-ability of the jet black, I more had an issue with the fingerprint smudges. The Matte Black stays clean looking and I used the Jet Black for 3 days before returning it and was constantly wiping off the back of the phone because of the massive amounts of smudges that were gathering on the phone. While Bestskinsever cures this to a degree, I was just more partial to the Matte.

    The Matte is exquisite. Looks better than the JB and needs less TLC.

I didn't think I would want to cover my phone with an  case. However, I tried it on at the store and the red on Jet Black looks really sweet.
    See, there is just something about the Product Red Leather Case that makes the Jet Black 7 Plus pop.

    I like the product red silicone case more than the leather. The red leather doesn't age well imho, otherwise it's great. The silicone continues to look new and red with age. The leather gets dirty and gross looking imo. Some like it but it the patinas look better on the saddle brown. The black leather ages best. Silicone isn't as nice as leather but it looks new much longer. But to each their own. Enjoy.

    Agree totally on the leather, it starts off great but doesn't last. I got the black silicone to match my Gold 7+ and it looks great. I may get the dark blue also. got to keep it fresh

    I got my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB (Jet Black) phone last week.

    I had already planned of not using a case. Just like when I used my iPhone 6 Plus 128gb and iPhone 6s Plus 128gb. Never used a case.

    On the very first day I installed the Armorz glass screen protector for the front and the back I had installed a clear 3M film protection (full body). The 3M film will protect the phone from scratches. No need to get stressed when using the phone and also can show off the jet black look.

    Here is the front of my phone with the Armorz glass screen protector




    Back of my Jet Black phone with the 3M film installed










    I have these pouches to carry my phone

    SF Bags Suede sleeve



    Joli Originals and Snugg Leather pouches



    I also got Apple Care+ for my phone.

    Looks great once my JetBlack 7 plus is delivered in 5 weeks I will definitely go with how you set yours up good looking out.

    I also have the Product Red Leather case on one of My iPads my son is using. Honestly I like the way it ages. To me the worn aged leather look is great. That's why I'm glad there are so many case selections. Every one can get that look they're shooting for.

    It doesn't fully show the phone but I like how the jet black can still be seen on the bottom. This is my set up.

    Thanks for the reminder. It's nice. The color matches the matte black but it's just too wide for me. It must add over a half inch at least to the width. The sides are not snug enough either in my opinion. The phone should be protected well but it looks like a tire is attached around the phone. I'll stick with the black Apple leather case.

    Thanks! Sorry you didn't like it. I just can't wait to order my phone lol. I'll just keep buying cases to compensate

    The more cases I try the more I appreciate the leather and silicone Apple cases.

    Apple cases are good but you can't use edge to edge full screen protectors with them. Many that do work start to show air bubbles on the sides, which is annoying.

    I too am enjoying the bumper on my matte black plus....I might pick up a black Apple leather case to switch back and forth on, but I did drop my phone to fast and the rhinoshield protected as advertised

    No micro abrasions yet. Also went nude the first day when I did have a case yet. If it does, oh well. It's just a phone. I have AC+ so if I gets bad when I go to sell it next year, I'll put a claim on it.
