Samsung’s official case boasts some pretty unique features, none of which you’ll find elsewhere on our list. The case is made of a single piece, one outfitted with a flip cover that grants all-around protection. The design reduces fingerprint smudges, and you can easily wipe away any blemishes that occur. When the front cover is closed, a cutout at the top also allows you to view the time, incoming calls, and a host of specified alerts. You can even interact with the notifications — without opening the case and exposing your display to the outside world.
You can never go wrong with a clear case, especially if you love your phone’s design and color. The i-Blason Halo Series Clear Case provides everything you’d want it to, including a slim profile and crystal-clear transparency. The case’s TPU components also make for a tighter grip, and provide resistance to discoloration, even after prolonged use. The back of the case is always clear, but i-Blason has options that add a bit of color to the surrounding border, allowing you to outfit your phone with a touch of black, blue, or pink, if you’re in need of a little something extra.
Supcase’s holster case for the S6 Edge might be missing the built-in screen protector that’s come to define its peers, but all of the other perks and benefits to using this case are still present. The bumper and back cover provide shock absorption, impact resistance, and additional grip. It also has precise cut-outs for your phone’s ports, buttons, and speakers, as well as covers to help reduce the amount of dust, dirt, and other debris that might otherwise find its way into your phone. Then there’s the 360-degree holster, which attaches to a belt clip. The case does add a bit of bulk to the phone, but in the end, size is a small price to pay for keeping your phone safe and intact.
Cover-Up Woodback Case ($21+)
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 ($19-23)
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 ($14)
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.
Mophie Juice Pack Battery Case ($55-60)
If you’re annoyed at the limited battery life of the S6 Edge, then Mophie has the solution for you. The company’s Juice Pack Battery Case is a relatively slim case that provides an additional 3,300mAh, which is enough to double your phone’s battery life, allowing you to make additional phone calls, surf the web, or stream video once your phone dies. The case also has a switch on the back so you can easily toggle the battery pack on and off, as well as a set of indicator lights that show how much power is left. Fast charging still works with the case on, too, and you get a charging cable and headphone adapter in the box.
Verus Thor Case ($24)
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.
