Five great Galaxy S7 cases

Moshi iGlaze Napa Case ($40)

Moshi iGlaze Napa Case

This is a smart-looking case that combines protection with a sophisticated design. There’s a flexible layer on the inside that absorbs impact and extends at the front to help protect your screen. It also provides a bit of give in the button covers and around the port openings. On top of that, it sports a tough polycarbonate frame outfitted with a faux leather covering that’s available in either black or brown. A metallic-style strip on the back bears the Moshi logo. It’s also comfortable to hold and it looks very stylish on the Galaxy S7.

Some of the designs are available through partnerships with artists and the cases are hand-crafted in northern Indiana.

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper ($25)

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper

A bumper is a great idea if you want to make sure that you can always enjoy the good looks of your Galaxy S7, because it will leave the screen and the back exposed. You may worry that protection will be limited, but with the CrashGuard, there’s nothing to fear because the bumper extends from the front to the back to give you 360-degree drop protection. RhinoShield says it can handle falls of up to 11.5 feet in height, which is well beyond what most cases will offer. It is thick, but the openings for the ports are quite large and the button covers are well-defined.

Melkco Jacka Type Case ($29)

Melkco Jacka Type Case

Cases that open like a book can sometimes be awkward. It’s not always easy to get at the volume buttons, and the cover can get in the way during a call. Thankfully, this case opens vertically, so it’s a little easier to use your S7 with it on. The finish is coarse-grained leather, which is available in either black or white with white stitching. It’s padded and comfortable to hold, too, with openings that provide full access to your smartphone’s buttons, ports, and camera. There’s even a tiny clasp at the top to hold it closed, as well as a soft lining on the inside to protect your screen.

i-Blason Hybrid Bumper Case ($10)

i-Blason Hybrid Bumper Case

Here’s a clear case that provides your S7 with a protective layer that doesn’t cramp your style. The sides are actually flexible, making the case easy to install and taking the sting out of bumps. The back is a hard panel that should prevent your S7 from picking up any scuffs or scratches. There’s also a slight lip designed to prevent the screen from touching down.
