NuGuard KX for iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 - Midnight

NewerTech NuGuard KX

Kinetic energy x-orbing protective case provides security and style without bulk.
Massive Impact Protection
NuGuard KX cases use state-of-the-art x-orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy. This revolutionary gel technology allows KX cases to be just a fraction of the size of bulkier protective cases while offering the massive impact protection NuGuard KX is known for.
Design That's More Than Skin Deep
The NuGuard KX Edge Guard over-molding provides enhanced iPhone screen edge protection without interfering with edge-to-edge touch finger accessibility to ensure hassle-free touch keyboarding and ability to drag and organize app icons from screen to screen. Best of all the KX measures an incredible 1/2" thin (including phone) so it can still easily fit in your pocket.
Full Port Access + Great Grip
Precision cutouts allow for full access to all of the iPhone 7 ports and buttons, and NuGuard KX's one-piece design makes installation a breeze. A unique cross hatch texture design on the back and sides of the case ensures a sturdy and strong grip while smooth front edge rails allow for easy pocket removal.
The strongest case also deserves the strongest warranty, with a best-in-class replacement lifetime guarantee.

Rating: 5/5 iPhone case May 20, 2018 This iPhone 7 Plus case seems to protect the iPhone well, without being bulky, and slips into my pocket without undue binding-up. Since the iPhone is already water resistant, the phone is ready for some rain if needed.

Rating: 5/5 Great Product February 25, 2018 I've trusted OWC for years now, and rightly so. I love how this case is very minimalistic in terms of bulk, but highly protective where it counts. Definitely recommend.

Rating: 5/5 So tough February 14, 2018 Second KX I've ordered and every bit as tough as the first. Light and grippy, not like competition, but very protective.

Rating: 4/5 Solid case but designed for metal case iPhone 7/+ December 29, 2017 Case installed on iPhone 8 Plus PRO: KX case is a solid case that provides good protection. Textured sides provide a no slip grip so you are not likely to drop the phone while holding it. Volume controls easy to adjust with case on. Easy to put the case on/off. Foam lining should provide good shock protection. CONS: Sleep button is hard to push in. I find I have to push multiple times to activate sleep. The opening on the back of the case that shows the Apple logo is not aligned with the iPhone 8+. It cuts off the bottom of the Apple logo. The opening itself is a dust and dirt magnet. The opening should have been removed for the iPhone 8/Plus with its glass back. If something were to strike the glass through the opening, a shattered back and expensive repair would result. With the iPhone 7 /+ you would just have a dent on the metal case.

OWC/Newertech should have redesigned the case specifically to take into account the glass case of the iPhone 8+ like they did for the iPhone X. The KX case for the iPhone X does not have an opening on the back of the case that would expose it to potential damage from an impact or scratches from dirt accumulating in the opening.

Bottom Line: Case works with the iPhone 8+ but was designed for the iPhone 7+

Rating: 5/5 Great Product November 23, 2017 I used one of these for years on my iPhone 5s and now that I have an iPhone 8 it was my first priority to get one for my new phone. With this along with my KX screen protector I feel my phone is fully protected. Thanks!

Rating: 5/5 NuGaurd KX IPhone 7Plus-Perfect Case October 8, 2017 Perfect fit and really protects the phone. This is the 4th or 5th NuGuard I've purchased for my iPhones as they have come out. Would not consider any other case all things considered. The textured finish helps you hold on to the phone too. Try them, you will like them!

Rating: 5/5 Good protection November 30, 2016 Case does a good job of protecting phone. Texture prevents it from accidentally sliding out of gym shorts. Need to press fairly hard to activate off/on switch. A good case overall and blue color is nice.

Rating: 4/5 I don't always drop my phone, but when I do, I'm glad it's in this case! November 9, 2016 Great impact protection. Improved grippyness (& I hook my finger tip in the logo cutout). Screen edge accessibility is good. The volume & lock buttons work well, but it's difficult to locate them by touch.

Rating: 4/5 Kept my iPhone 6 safe so this will do same for iPhone 7 November 8, 2016 Used my iPhone 6 for two years while it was protected by this same model case. So I naturally bought a new one customized for a iPhone 7. The old case protected the phone when I dropped it getting out of the car, and when I bumped it off the nightstand. I expect this case will save the new iPhone 7 during its lifetime also.

Rating: 5/5 Low profile, great protection. November 4, 2016 This case doesn't add a lot of bulk to the phone. It feels more secure holding the phone than against the bare metal. Feels very solid and seems to have a lot of protection for the phone. Color is great as well.

Rating: 4/5 Great Protective Case October 23, 2016 Having bought a new iPhone 7 Plus in Jet Black I wanted to make sure the phone was protected well. This case is great in that it gives similar protection to the phone that a thicker Otterbox Case provides at half the thickness. The only downside is its hard to dock the phone anywhere with the case on.
