What do you use? A Case or a Skin or Naked?

    Here's a photo of the Spigen Rugged Armor on the 1+ 7 Pro. The case feels likeits part of the phone and it give great protection.

    Dbrand Grip with black dragon as soon as it arrives. Some cheap see trough stuff with bumpers in the corners right now. Forgot the brand. The phone lights up like a christmas tree when the flash gets on and bouches around in the case.
    The christmas tree effect does not exactly fit my taste... Only thing that could make it worse would be a pink tint in the case [e]1f609[/e]

    Oh....BTW...I am returning my RhinoShield Crashguard and am warning everyone NOT to buy this bumper case. First off, it's very slippery. I can let that slide, but you pick it up and it slides too much in you hand. I wished it was made of Silicone rather than hard matte plastic. The biggest reason is the frame itself around the pop up camera. I just noticed it recently. When you take a selfie, there's a light white shadow that appears on the bottom of the screen. It's like a white haze. But it's noticeable. I read that with the Ringke case, the exact same thing happens. The lip of the frame goes up too far and partially blocks the lens. When you remove the case, the haze/shadow is gone. This is a design flaw. I can't believe nobody has mentioned it.

    I bought the Ringke case too I have not really uses it. I put it on and then decided it did not have much material to absorb shock of a drop and not much of a lip to protect the screen. it's in a drawer. I'm using OtterBox symmetry. I really like the style of the Ringke but this is one of those times I chose substance over style.

    Now that I have tried multiple case, I think someone needs to design a case very similar to the clear stock case, except be a bumper case. I just installed the Dbrand Bamboo skin and it looks awesome. A clear bumper case with an open back design would be perfect. Plus it needs to take into account of the lip by the front camera.

    Provided silicone case until I find a new one I like. Never naked for me as I just don't trust that I'll get the 1 in 10,000 moment where I drop my phone and its got zero protection.

    Have you seen the ghost effect at the bottom of the screen when you take a selfie? Others have noticed it on the this case because the lip on the frame is too high and covers the bottom portion of the lens. It's the same problem with my Rhinoshield, which I'm trying to return.

    I don't see any ghosting on mine. The lip is sufficiently away from the lens aperture. Although, it does cover a tiny bottom portion of the camera. Doesn't affect photos in any way.

    Hmmm... interesting. I looked into this case a few weeks ago. But then saw a reviewer on YT. He mentioned the slight white haze at the bottom. So I passed. I just got the Rhinoshield Crashguard last week. I took a selfie with my daughter and noticed the white haze. I removed the case, took another picture and the haze is gone. It's definitely in the case. You can clearly see when the camera is up. With the case, the camera is partially covered, which causes the haze.

    It's not the ideal. But try to remove some material on the case if you end up getting one with that problem. I know I will do that if my new case have that issue... Hope it does not though. Dbrand Grip.

    You'd figure these companies provides testing to ensure the problem doesn't exist. But they don't. As long as the camera goes up, they think it's fine. They are not taking selfies, then seeing the white haze and say, "Nope..we have to lower the lip down just a bit more" and test again.

    I like this case. But I won't buy it for this particular reason.
