Battle of the iPhone cases for 7 Plus – Ghostek Atomic 3 vs. Punkcase StudStar!

If you have the latest iPhone, it only makes sense to own the best of the iPhone cases available out there in the market.

But how to find the best one?

With a variety of different choices available, you might be at a loss to choose the ideal case that complements your phone and offers maximum protection at the same time.

We have brought to you two of the most sought after iPhone cases in the market today – the Ghostek Atomic 3 and the Punkcase StudStar.

Both these cases have a lot going for them and they have their similarities and differences, of course. We’ll show you everything about them here - read on as we compare each of these iPhone cases.

Ghostek Atomic 3 vs. Punkcase StudStar

Before we begin comparing the two phones, let’s look at what we should look for in the ideal case. Protection against dirt, water, snow, shock, screen protection, ease of use, weight, appearance, colour choices and affordable pricing are some of the most commonly looked for features in iPhone cases.

Now we know what we’re looking for, let’s get started.

Protection against dirt and water

The Ghostek Atomic 3 boasts a raised bevel and offers complete 360 degree protection for your iPhone 7. Its multi layered protection protects the front, rear and sides from dirt and water ingress at any angle. The protection in this particular case is top notch with its high grade protection for the camera and flash, screen protection, and scratch protection at the rear end, too. Not only that, the Ghostek brings a strong aluminium frame into the picture and this is most certainly a point in its favor. It can also keep your iPhone 7 waterproof up to a depth of 4ft.

When you look at the StudStar series, you’ll find this case comes with IP68 certification. This case actually goes deeper than the Atomic 3.0 can, taking your phone down to 6.6ft depths of water submersion. It’ll also block dirt out with ease.

To sum up, both the iPhone cases offer top notch protection against dirt and water.


Both the phones offer shock absorption and military grade ruggedness, which is exactly what you’ll need for a phone as precious and expensive as the iPhone 7.
The Ghostek is built with impact absorbing technology and is fit enough to protect your phone in a variety of outdoor conditions. The StudStar similarly offers military ruggedness to your phone and protects your phone against falls up to 6.6 ft.

Truth be told, we are torn between the choice here when it comes to ruggedness. Both the cases offer excellent drop protection. However, the Ghostek Atomic 3.0 might just win out with its aluminum alloy bumper.

Look and feel

Some people feel that the Ghostek most certainly trumps the StudStar series in this aspect. With its capped cut outs, tactile response and nature responsiveness of the material used, the Ghostek case really does look gorgeous.

The StudStar has a scratch guard, anti reflective lens, scratch resistant back cover – all of which are major plusses for the case - and yet it is a tad bit plain looking when you compare it to the Ghostek Atomic 3.0, which looks super slick and stylish.

However, if you love bright colors, then we’d encourage you to take a look at the StudStar’s 8 color range. A bright pop of color totally transforms the look of the case from drab to fab.


The Ghostek is pricier when compared to the StudStar and costs up to $55 while the StudStar is available from $40. While this could be a deciding factor for many, some might still opt for the Atomic 3.0. Given its aluminium body and extra protection, not to mention its stylish looks, the price is perhaps justified.

When you come to think of it, someone with the latest iPhone wouldn’t perhaps mind shelling out the extra money when they get all those additional features and of course its ultra stylish and slick looks!

If you are compare the two cases purely based on their features, the Ghostek Atomic 3.0 perhaps has the added advantage of the aluminum frame, while the StudStar is equally good with its rich features and ample protection. In conclusion, these are both outstanding iPhone cases, and either would do a great job of keeping your iPhone 7 safe.
