    For those who got the Mate 9, what cases have you tried and thoughts about them?

    It comes with one. I bought a soft shell but eh. There are couple popular brands on Amazon, but I really want the hard 3-piece shell I got for iPhone.

    I don't like the one it came with- I like the flip covers, like the one that came with the Mate 8. I'll have to go search for one!

    What do you not like about the one that came with it and for those who do have it, how does it feel in the hand? add more grip, less slippery, easier to hold the phone? Granted it will not add drop protection.

    This case from VANSIN for iPhone is beautiful, sturdy, and does not block or cover or interfere with any ports.

    The one incl with Mate is clear, does not give full protection but does cover the corners.

    One I ordered does have better protection.

    For me, this is most promising:

    I think it's just kinda ugly, and of course that is a personal preference!

    Minimalist and prevents slipping better.

    Clear is clear as can be. As unobtrusive as imagine. Personally.

    Some like bright red, some black, I'll bet yellow (not gold) has its fans 😸

    Was thinking about that soft TPU clear case as well.. or the Ringke one,

    https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Protec...cUvbUpU5640427

    which seems to offer a better drop protection, but I do not want to add bulk.. if anyone has the Ringke case, can you comment on it?

    The one it came with pretty decent and for those people who prefer to show off the phone. Zero protection from drops but I use it just to prevent scratches etc.

    I bought the Ringke Fusion and Spigen Rugged Armor. They're both good. But the Ringke is more comfortable when I am holding it for long periods of time. Softer material.

    The one that came in the box with the phone is light, pleasing to look at and provides protection for the back and corners. I bought a flip Nillkin leather case which is nice and protects the screen -- it was $12 from Amazon. There many on eBay, AliExpress, etc which are the same but cheaper but take a while to ship. If you haven't had the phone in your hand don't touch unless you have $600 handy. It is one great phone and if they were available at the U.S. Carriers I think Apple, Samsung, LG would be beginning to sweat.

    Two cases that i was considering. Do you mind posting some picture with the Ringke case on? Glad to know that it feels more comfortable in the hand. does it add a lot of bulk and it seems to be a hard and not soft case correct?

    It doesn't add much bulk. The case is a soft-hard case. It's stiffer than tpu ones. But not rigid.

    I'm guessing this makes the phone pretty darn big? It looks like a good case when I'm out and about and need the extra protection. I'm not a fan of the "Love MEI" printed on the side.

    I went with the Ringke because it's your typical simple, TPU and didn't like the one that came with the phone. I'll probably keep shopping for another case though.

    Yes, it makes the phone rather bulky and more dense (adds more heft), but I love the added protection the case gives to the phone. The screen protector is tempered glass and it's phenomenal!

    That last item is pure trash. Interferes with Touch ID, and side buttons,ball with minimal if any rotection.

    The hard metal one for iPhone is strong but light and looks great. Shame they don't

    Were there any nice cases for Note 7? Or wasn't out long enough to see it being supported.

    I didn't like slightly large corners on the included case so I went with this one in black. It's pretty boring but it's minimal. It says "Nillkin" on the back but the Amazon page doesn't say that. I wanted very minimal. It provides a very slight ridge around the camera and leaves the side buttons fully exposed.

    Does this case interfere at all with fingerprint Touch ID?

    Love how fast and accurate it is, but a case I tried, looks similar, but kept having trouble.

    Nope. Works great. (Isn't Toudh ID what Apple calls there's? )

    I ordered a nilkin black case, almost identical in design to the one that came with it. Had I known before hand one came with it, I'd have it ordered the nilkin. The one that comes with it is minimal, good grip, and not unattractive.

    I went with this one. Fits well, gives a little more grip to the back, and looks great on the phone. The "black" color is really more of a smoke, with I actually like a lot better.

    It looks like they have two different types of cases? One has raised corners (the black). Does yours have those raised corners, like the one that came with the phone?
