Since the Jet Black option is more prone to scratches, what cases are you all looking into? I have an Otterbox now on my 6S Plus and it's horrible because it adds way to much bulk. Any recommendations for something to keep the enclosure and screen safe without all the bulkiness that an Otterbox adds?

I doubt it's more prone to scratches, just a fingerprint magnet. Spigen makes nice thin cases with clear backs and full clear. Rhinoshield Crash Guard is a bumper only that extends past the edges and is rated at 11 feet for drops.

Re: Cases

I'm not putting a case on it, might as well get the other model of you do seeing as the reason for getting the jet black model is for it'd looks. I would put invisible shield or something but no case

Re: Cases

could you compare the camera cutout for the 7 plus compared to a case for the 6 plus? trying to see if my current case charger combo might possibly fit meaning one less accessory to purchase.

Re: Cases

Will be getting the Otterbox Defender for my new Iphone 7 Plus since it's one of the only cases that come with a belt clip anymore. I don't really need all the protection but hate carrying phones in my pockets.

Re: Cases

I'll be ordering my 7+ leather case from the Apple site today in anticipation. At $50 it's definitely highway robbery...but I've never had a case that fit better or looked better longer. I've had it on all my iPhone's since my "5".

I use the black one since with use & time, all the cases develop "patina" or stains from the oils in your skin & the environment. The black leather variant hides those stains...

Apple's website has a footnote that the Jet black finish could be prone to micro scratches.

It literally states on the apple website the jet black is more prone to visible micro scratches

Re: Cases

Poetic cases are 10 basically, time to buy before they go up in price

It is more prone to 'micro-abrasions' as per the official Apple iPhone 7 site. Scroll to the bottom to the fine print and look at point 2.

I've used the midnight blue leather case on my 6s+ since day one and I've loved it. It actually provided more drop protection than I thought I would. Mine is scuffed at some places, but I'd rather have a scuff on the case than on the phone! My blue case is also lighter in some areas so it didn't completely hide the stains, but I'm wondering if those are oil stains or makeup/lotion stains.
