What It Is: The iPhone 7 has just hit the pockets of millions of consumers – but amongst all that hubbub comes the consideration: What case am I going to use? Cause really, when you’re investing hundreds (or potentially over $1,000) on a surprisingly slippery pocket-sized computer, you best be protecting your investment. Apple has stepped up to the plate over the last few years, offering an increasingly beautiful phone with fun finishes like rose gold and new jet black. Plus with the new slimmer profile of their phones, more and more iPhone owners are looking for a case that will do three things: Protect their phone, show off its design, and be as thin as possible.
Enter Totallee, an iPhone-specific case manufacturer that offers three cases in varying levels of thickness – yet all of them will help protect your phone from drops and scratches. The cases range in size from .06″ (the sturdy Doberman) to just .02″ (the nearly invisible Scarf), with a happy medium of .04″ of protection, known as the Spy. Regardless of what case you choose, the cases are all super lightweight, don’t use aggressive branding, and show off the fact you’re a proud iPhone owner. Each case is reverse compatible back to the iPhone 5, plus they’ve already got new cases on offer for the freshly released iPhone 7. While the Doberman and Spy come in one colour only (black and clear respectively) at present, the Scarf is available in five hues (I’m weirdly entranced by the Jobs-esque crisp white).
Who It’s For: Your son or daughter that just nabbed the 7 but is oh so lackadaisical about their case. Your spouse, who refuses to add a case because it bulks up their phone too much. Your parents, who don’t seem to get the iPhone is so much more than a phone.
What It Costs: $25 each – plus free shipping and a 90-day warranty!
Where It’s At: You can buy all of Totallee’s cases online here.
