Best Cheap Cases for iPhone 7

You shelled out a few hundred dollars for your new iPhone 7 but don't want to spend too much on a case? Not to worry. There are a ton of great cases you can get for under $20, including some from some of the best brands.

Caseology Skyfall

Caseology Skyfall

Aside from its decidedly cool name, the Caseology Skyfall is an excellent addition to Caseology's repertoire and would pair nicely with your iPhone 7. The hard polycarbonate back is crystal clear, allowing you to appreciate the beauty that is your new iPhone, while around the edges is a somewhat softer acrylic that helps with shock absorption where polycarbonate fails.

The acrylic bumper comes in rose gold, gold, silver, and deep blue (gorgeous!), you can mix and match to please your sense of style. All the necessary ports are cut out precisely, and, though the buttons are covered, you still receive a tactile response that's both convenient and satisfying (especially if you like to mess with volume in your pocket).

All that and only around $16!

Ringke Fusion

Ringke Fusion

Ringke makes one of the best fusion-style cases, seamlessly blending a flexible TPU bumper with a hard polycarbonate back, so that you're fully protected on all side, and the TPU gives you some extra grip.

Ringke Fusion is one of the few fusion-style cases to be military drop-tested, so it can survive a fall of about 2 feet, and, presumably, follow you into battle.

The TPU bumpers come in clear, rose gold crystal, and smoke black, which are nice and subtle and will compliment and color iPhone 7.

This is easily the best clear case you can get for $10.

Spigen Tough Armor

Spigen Tough Armor

If you're concerned with bang for your buck and want the most protection you can get without breaking the bank, then Spigen Tough Armor is what you want. For around $15, you get dual-layer protection in the form of a flexible and durable TPU bumper and a hard polycarbonate shell that snaps onto the back.

These cases are military grade drop-tested, so your new iPhone 7 won't go kablooey if you drop it from 2 feet up (about where your arm hangs). You get Spigen's Air Cushion technology, which leaves a little pocket of air in each corner to disperse the force from a drop. As we all know, dropping your iPhone on its corner is the kill-shot.

Tough Armor comes in gunmetal, black, jet black, champagne gold, rose gold, and satin silver.

Trianium Clarium

Tianium Clarium

No, it's not a terrible Matt Damon movie; the Trianium Clarium is an awesomely inexpensive clear case option that lets you fully appreciate the true beauty and design of your iPhone 7.

The Clarium is a case of the "fusion" variety which, in one piece, blends a soft and flexible TPU bumper with a hard polycarbonate back, protecting your iPhone from scratches, bumps, and (perhaps most importantly) providing shock absorption where your phone needs it most — the corners.

If you want an awesome clear phone case for around $10, then it doesn't get much better than Trianium Clarium (well, it does, but you'd have to spend more).

AmazonBasics Slim

AmazonBasics

If you want to go absolutely basic and go for the bare minimum, then check out AmazonBasics' Slim case, which is just $10 (probably the least you'd want to spend on a phone case).

These cases are made from hard polycarbonate with a soft rubber coating that makes them smooth but non-slip. The raised bezel on the front protects your iPhone 7's screen when it falls or is laid face-down, and the cutouts are all precise, including the Lightning port cutout, which is big enough for larger third-party cables.

You have your choice of red, black, dark gray, or navy blue.

JETech

JETech

JETech's case is another of the fusion variety, with a colored TPU bumper and a clear, hard polycarbonate back that protects your iPhone 7 from scratches and dings.

The buttons are covered with the softer TPU, so you can feel each press, and all the necessary cutouts are precise, so you can charge, flick the mute switch, and take photos without having to remove the case.

You have your choice of black, gold, gray, clear, and rose gold bumpers, and the back is always clear so that you can see your iPhone in all its glory.
