We’ve been checking around and these are some of the best iPhone 7 Plus cases you can buy right now.

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet ($30)

Made from European cowhide nubuck leather, the Snakehive Leather Wallet is one you’ll just want to hold in your hand all the time because it feels so good. It’s all thanks to a wonderfully soft texture on the outside, which has been smoothed out for extra protection on the inside. The iPhone is held in a slim, clear plastic case, with wide cutouts for the volume and power buttons, along with the speakers and charging port. Opposite are three card slots and a pocket for cash, plus a magnetic clasp that keeps the case closed. The folio case can fold out into a stand for your iPhone 7 Plus so you can watch video. This super-stylish, real leather folio case is available in the burgundy seen here, or in chestnut brown and navy colors, all at an excellent price.

iFace First Class ($25-plus)

The iFace First Class case has an unusual shape to it, adding a subtle curved contour to the sides. The curves make the iPhone 7 Plus more comfortable to hold. The soft rubber edges vastly improve grip, while a special honeycomb-shaped interior increases drop protection. The case also meets military drop-test standards. The rear is smooth, has an opening for a lanyard strap, and comes in various colors. We love the pearl gray version and the emerald green model. It’s lightweight, really comfortable to hold, and well-priced. There’s even a metal plate inside the case’s body for use with iFace’s $20 magnetic in-car holder.

Native Union Clic Marble ($72)

Do you want a stunning case that effectively mirrors the investment you made in the device itself? The Native Union Clic Marble is what you want. The case has a shatter-resistant sliver of real marble — each piece is unique, too — reinforced with fiberglass, and with a contrasting metal panel fitted into a rubber body for complete protection. Available in white with gold or black with brushed aluminum, it’s an absolutely stunning case that attracts as many admiring glances as the phone itself.

Amazon

Totallee Scarf Slim Cover ($15)

Totallee Scarf Case

If you’re not generally a big fan of cases and you want to retain the iPhone’s slim profile, then this super-slim cover might suit you. At just 0.02 inches thick, you’ll barely notice it as it improves grip and wards off scratches thanks to its durable polypropylene.  It has a matte, frosted, translucent finish that comes in a variety of colors. We’re pleased to see that there’s no case maker logo on this minimalist offering. The fit is good and it has all the openings you need. Just be aware that it won’t provide drop protection and because it’s thin. it may wear quite quickly, though Totallee does offer a 2-year warranty on the case.

Amazon

Speck CandyShell Grip Case ($26)

Speck CandyShell Grip case

You get reliable drop protection from this case, which sports a stylish ribbed finish that also enhances your grip on your iPhone 7 Plus. It’s a dual-layer case, mixing a hard shell with flexible rubber sections. The fit is perfect, the cut-outs are large enough for easy access, and the button covers work well. It does add some bulk, but if you want to be sure your phone will survive a fall, then you won’t mind the trade-off. The CandyShell has been replaced by the Presidio now, which is a slightly different design, so grab this while you still can.

Amazon

Nomad Rugged Case ($15 plus)

A rugged case that doesn’t look or feel like a rugged case? It’s the dream — and Nomad’s Rugged Case comes very close to realizing it. We love the honeycomb design on the back, which is raised to create a shock-absorbing layer of air. The case has been drop-tested to 2 meters, and has a more flexible edge for all-round protection. Best of all, it’s really light, and doesn’t add much bulk to your phone.

Amazon Nomad

Sena Lugano Wallet ($20)

Sena’s Lugano Wallet case covers all the key bases for your iPhone. It protects the body with hard-wearing leather and reinforced plastic, along with softer silicone surrounds for the buttons and speakers. There’s also a herringbone design lining to keep the phone free from scratches when it’s inside the case. The edge is raised to keep the screen away from the surface if the phone is placed facedown, and the case provides rugged shock absorption. There are also three credit card slots built into the case. It’s available in cognac, black, and denim for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus for $20.

Amazon

Pad & Quill Bella Fino Case ($70)

Made from a single piece of leather and embossed with the Pad & Quill name and logo, this folio case for the iPhone 7 Plus has a sticky pad to keep it in place rather than a clip. The pad is made by 3M, and leaves no residue if you decide to remove it in the future. The folio case has four credit card holders, an ID window, and space for some cash. The leather feels superb, and the stitching adds character, while the whole case stays relatively slim and lightweight. It’s quite stiff to start with, and needs a few days in a pocket before it softens up and closes properly.
