Don’t live on the edge: Protect and style your Galaxy S6 Edge with these 20 great cases

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge is a beautiful smartphone, but it’s not quite as edgy as we anticipated. The curve on either side of the screen is modest and the subtle design has saved case makers a major headache. It combines brushed metal and glass in a seriously stylish package, but you feel as though even staring at this phone too hard might break it. There’s no need to live on the edge, check out the best Galaxy S6 Edge cases and get some protection.

Cover-Up Woodback Case ($26)

Cover-Up Woodback Case

The Woodback collection from Cover-Up come in a wide variety of different finishes including Walnut, Maple, Mahogany, Black Limba, Cedar, and the list goes on. These are simple, slim, black polycarbonate cases with a wooden back panel showing off the natural wood grain of your chosen wood. The case is fairly minimal, with generous cut-outs. It won’t interfere with your normal use of the phone, but it won’t offer rugged protection either. It’s thin enough that it doesn’t impact on wireless charging either.

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case ($21)

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case

This popular case reverses the usual polycarbonate and TPU combo by having the back panel in textured TPU, for added grip, and the bumper in tough polycarbonate. The button covers are also TPU and there’s a slight bezel around the front to protect the screen, and on the back to safeguard the camera lens. It’s a snug fit, the openings are precise, and this case looks more expensive than it is once it’s on. It should offer reasonable drop protection, but it’s not a really rugged case, so we wouldn’t put that to the test.

Skech Crystal Case ($20)

Skech Crystal Case

No one really wants to hide a beautiful design like the S6 Edge, so this transparent case could be tempting. It’s a more traditional one-piece combo, with a tough polycarbonate back panel, and has a flexible, shock absorbing frame with button covers built-in. The cut-outs are accurate, it’s slim, and it offers basic protection without encroaching on your phone’s style. There’s a lip around the front to make sure the screen is kept off the ground should you drop it.

Incipio Offgrid Battery Case ($90)

Incipio Offgrid Battery Case

If you were annoyed at the lack of a microSD card slot or the limited battery life in the Galaxy S6 Edge, then Incipio is aiming at you with this case. It’s a fairly slim battery case offering an extra 3,700mAh, which is enough to double your phone’s battery life. It also has a microSD card slot, and you can enter storage mode by flicking the switch on the side. You’ll have to supply your own card, but you can get up to an extra 128GB this way. Fast charging and contactless payments still work with the case on. You get a charging cable and a headphone extender in the box.

Verus Thor Case ($17)

Verus Thor Case

Here’s a classic design featuring a black TPU inner that includes reinforced corners for good drop protection, and a polycarbonate back panel to add a contrasting splash of color. The button covers work well, the fit is good, and the openings are precisely where they need to be. The corners prevent the S6 edge from coming into contact with the ground and there’s a big TPU lip top and bottom on the front to safeguard the screen. You can get this one with a back panel in a variety of different colors. For an extra couple of dollars you can also get a holster with a swiveling belt clip that doubles up as a kickstand.
