just got a iphone 7 and i need a case that has excellent grip first and foremost. Are the ones with screen protectors better or worse or do you prefer a case without a protector? What features have you found to be important? thanks

I use a Quad Lock case for my iPhone 8, have a thin glass screen protector on the screen.

Advantage of the QL case is I can securely mount it to the bike on a Ram Mount ball/arm and use if for navigation.

I have an iPhone X. I use a zagg Glass Elite screen protector and when on trips I use an Element case. For the mount, I have a Ram claw with a Perfect Squeeze mount. When it comes down to it, with the iPhone X being waterproof enough for weathering storms, I stopped worrying about that aspect of a case. I just wanted it to be protected from getting smashed by bugs or taking a tumble. I use my phone as my GPS, so on trips it's important, so I am OK spending more on my cases and mounts. Around town, the phone generally sits in the frunk or my pocket. The screen protector sounds expensive, but I have replaced mine for the cost of shipping 6 times since I got my phone 2 years ago. Their warranty is awesome, and no questions asked.

Again, the case and screen protector links are for an iPhone X, but they have products for the 7. And actually, when I had a 6S+, I used and liked the LifeProof case (waterproof).
