Grovemade Maple iPhone Case ($100)

Best iPhone 7 cases - Grovemade Maple iPhone Case

Grovemade

It’s expensive, but who can resist the natural wood charms of Grovemade’s wares? A beautiful, solid maple bumper combines with a backplate that adheres directly to your iPhone 7. You’ll find tactile wooden button covers for the power and volume, and accurate openings for the switch, camera, and ports. While the case should protect your iPhone if you drop it, the wood will chip and crack fairly easily, so this is definitely more about style than protection. It is expensive at more than $100, but the Grovemade warranty offers 50 percent off if you break the case and want to repurchase the same one.

Killspencer Snap Case

Killspencer Snap Case

For a snap-on case with a stylish, durable, leather finish and plenty of character, look no further than Killspencer’s Snap Case. The case has a basic, slim shell with generous cutouts for your phone’s camera, ports, and side switch. There are also well-defined button covers and an optional strap for added security, which is good because this case is more about style than protection. It currently only comes in black, but you can add a two-character monogram if you want. The case costs $48 and the monogram will cost you an extra $30.

This classy cover for the iPhone 7 is made of high-quality leather. A thin, plastic shell holds your iPhone in place, and it’s wrapped in a padded-leather exterior that completely envelopes your phone, protecting it from all angles. The front cover has a magnetic closure, which opens to reveal a couple of handy slots for stowing credit cards. There are also cutouts for your phone’s speaker, camera, buttons, and ports.

CM4 Q Card Case

CM4 Q Card Case

Leave your wallet or purse at home with the Q Card Case from CM4. This case combines a number of clever features. The durable plastic shell will fit your iPhone perfectly. You’ll also find tactile button covers, accurate cutouts, and textured strips on the sides for enhanced grip. The back sports a leather-style pocket that can hold a couple of credit cards and some cash. There’s also a smart slot that you can slide a card into, allowing you to prop up your phone in landscape view. It costs $20 to $25 and comes in black, gray, gold, or pink.

Utomic Edge Corner Protectors

Utomic Edge Corner Protectors

The most annoying thing about most iPhone 7 cases is that they cover up Apple’s gorgeous design. Thankfully, Utomic has a minimalist alternative that still provides some protection in the form of corner protectors. These are small, flexible bumpers that are attached using an adhesive that takes 24 hours to properly set. They stick to each corner of your iPhone and extend from front to back to prevent your phone from touching down on flat surfaces. You also get wipes and an installation sleeve, allowing for the perfect fit. They come in an array of colors, too, and provide decent protection against falls of up to 4 feet, provided your phone doesn’t land on an uneven surface. They cost $35.

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet

Snakehive’s leather folio cases are an absolute steal. The leather has a fine grain on the outside, which is pleasant to the touch, and a traditional leather finish on the inside for protection and longevity. We love the black and navy color scheme here, but it’s available in other colors too. Your phone fits perfectly inside, and there’s a very handy magnetic clasp to keep the cover closed. It doubles as a stand for your phone as well. You can pick one up for $30.

Mous iPhone 7 Case

A super-successful Indiegogo campaign launched these slick cases,which are  available in wood, marble, bamboo, leather, or Kevlar finishes. The cases look great, with the protective Airo-Shock interior keeping the phone safe even when dropped from a great height. Yet the cases have style and class, rather than the rugged toughness usually associated with such protection. They cost $50 a piece.

Vesel Wood Series Case

Vesel Wood Series Case

There’s no denying that these bumper-style cases from Vesel are very expensive at well over $100, but they’re also beautifully crafted. The combination of aluminum and wood is seriously stylish. You can mix and match gold, rose, black, or silver aluminum with oak, walnut, maple, or pear wood to get the exact look you want. The premium packaging also includes a small screwdriver, so you can fit the bumper securely around your phone. The button covers work well and there’s a generous opening for your phone’s Lightning port. The case extends from the front to the back to safeguard your iPhone 7, though you may want to pair it with a screen protector for some additional peace of mind.
