Hi all,

I just updated from an iPhone 6 to a new iPhone 8. I've used a Magpul bump case for a few years and love it. Looks like they only make the field case for the iPhone 7/8. Is it basically as good as the bump case? If not, what other cases do you recommend that provide a similar level of protection and ergonomics? I use a tempered glass screen protector, so I'm looking for a case similar to the bumb/field cases. Thanks.

Chris

Check out the Otterbox Symmetry. I was in the same spot and came across this one. I really like like it, it’s not like a traditional Otterbox

I love Rhinoshield cases, the Playproof specifically.

I do not like the bulk asscoayed with the Otterbox cases but still want good protection. I stumpled upon this brand while searching You Tube for case reviews....They always placed high in drop tests and people that have them seem to love them

I’m a big fan of Spigen’s Neo Hybrid cases.

This is what work supplies for our Iphone 8's, it has the 10 foot drop-roof feature and is slimmer than most cases.

I prefer the Spigen, I have used it for years and it has never let me down.

Incipio is good, but I switched to speck and prefer it now. I like a slim case.

Seidio Dilex

Best case I've ever had. I've gone through at least 20 different brands of cases and the Dilex model from Seidio strikes the right balance between design, rugged durability and style. You can also get them Kryptek camouflage.

I also use the clear Speck case on my 8+ and love it.

If battery issues are a problem for you get the Apple smart battery case for the iPhone 7. It fits and works perfectly and is the best battery case you will ever use as the phone is programmed to work with it seemlessly

I know they are leftist hacks but I love speck cases. Been using them since my iPhone 5.

I use the presidio grip

Otterbox

Either Otterbox Symmetry and a glass screen protector if you want to go with a slim package

Or

The Otterbox Defender if you want full drop protection. You can still add glass screen protector and remove otters plastic version that is included with the case.

Otterbox offers lifetime replacement guarantee on their cases. Wear and tear whatever.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I appreciate it. I learned about a whole bunch of cases I'd never heard of before.

I had the otter box defender for my iPhone 5 that I just upgraded to an 8. When I took the case off it looked like a brand new phone despite being dropped hundreds of times. So I got another defender go my 8, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
