    I have the Incipio Octane. I think it looks great and protects well enough. I have the same on my Pixel. I love how inexpensive the cases are for this phone. I'll probably pick up a couple others just to be able to switch them out when I feel like a change.
    Finally took a picture of the Octane case. I did also put a Pittsburgh Pirates skin on the back. First I have ever used a skin. Not sure if I will keep it or not. I did like the clear back that showed off the phone, but also like supporting my Pirates, so I am torn.

    Have a few other cases on the way as well. Incipio Dual Pro cases that I found for $2.99 each on Amazon. Love the cheap case options for this phone. I will post up some pictures when they get here.

    I like the OtterBox Commuter case so much, that I removed it from my 5 phone and dropped my SE into. Along with a tempered glass screen protector. Much more protection and very little added bulk.

    How's the fit for you? Mine is having issues and feels like it's to small. It's like the hard shell is bending at the top and bottom.

    I did a search for Supcase. I'm definitely debating on the Unicorn Beetle for this phone. Looks nice and for $18 it's a lot less than Otterbox.

    I like the feel of the Apple leather case but button sensitivity is reduced a bit too much for my taste. It's hard to adjust volume. The search goes on, I guess. I didn't notice before I took it off that the red case is (PRODUCT)RED (Apple sends part of the profits to fight HIV/AIDS in 8 African countries). For that reason I'll keep it instead of returning it. Heck, if I don't find my ideal case I might come back to this one.

    Does your case have the metal buttons? On my Apple leather cases, the metal buttons don't really feel any different than the phone's volume and power buttons. I'd suggest taking it into an Apple Store and see if you can't get a replacement red case that has better button feel.

    Thanks, but since it cost $8 (refurb) and the nearest Apple Store is a 280 mile round trip, it makes more sense to buy somethng else.

    It's this Apple case:

    No metal buttons, just leather bumps as you can see in the attached photo from that web page.

    It's my fault. When I posted, I was thinking I'd clicked on the 7 Plus case thread. The 7 Plus was, so far as I know, the first case to have the metal buttons on the leather case -- and they do make a huge difference. I can understand you having issues with the SE leather case; I wish Apple would update the leather cases for their other phones.

    On my SE I have an Ullu leather case and they made the smart move of just having cutouts for the buttons. It's not quite as protective, having those cutouts, but you don't have the issues with button presses.

    Hmm maybe I should try that on my 7 plus. I hadn't even looked at them yet, phone is still in the mail.

    The fit on my Otterbox Commuter case is perfect on my SE phone. It fit perfectly on the I phone 5 too.

    It appears as though you do not have the phone entirely in the case good and snug.

    What does the front look like? The rubber portion is overlapping the front of the phone just a bit, as it should?

    Newly arrived, my extremely minimal case that might be more accurately described as a skin. Just 0.35mm thick, flush with the volume buttons. Translucent gray, Apple logo shows through, a nice match for Space Gray. No raised screen bumper—this is for those of us who want to run naked, but don't want scratches. Paired with a tempered glass screen protector.

    ... And I ended up going back to Apple's Product Red leather case. For grip, protection, and good looks on my Space Gray SE.

    Isn't it wonderful to only have First World issues such as which case to use, which premium phone to buy, which size of premium phone works best for me? I need to be more thankful for what I have.

    An attempt at practicality: a wallet case. This one claims it can hold eight cards plus some cash. I think five or six cards plus a few bills is more reasonable. Which happens to work for me. It's nice to not have to carry a separate wallet!

    I wonder how much bulk the Otterboxes would add? I mean, I get it, but one of the big 'features' of the SE is the reduced size. Plopping it into a chunky case kind of defeats part of the purpose?

    Trade off I suppose... protection vs. form. Or something.
    The Otterbox Commuter, adds very little bulk. It's perfect. Their Defender model adds quite a bit of bulk.

    I tried the Commuter and ended up returning it. Couldn't use the Power/Lock button with it on!

    Took off my Pirates skin, and switched up the case for football season. Love the look of this case. Also got an Andrew McCutchen case from the same company, but that was a soft case, and the fit was terrible (like it was made for a thinner phone). I got a refund on that one, even though I loved how it looked.
