Leather, folio, and wood cases

Olixar Leather-Style Wallet Case

Want the style points of a leather wallet case without the steep price? This leather-style case from Olixar gets the job done. Its leather-effect outer and soft microfiber lining protect your phone, while two interior credit card slots can be used to store your cards or ID. It even folds back into a kickstand for hands-free viewing or web browsing.

WUDN Wooden Case

Everyone likes the look of natural wood, and WUDN’s cases come in a wide selection of different woods that includes cedar, bamboo, mahogany, walnut, and more. As well as natural wood cases, there are plenty of carved designs to choose from, with everything from Mandalas to world maps and mountains. Each phone case is handcrafted in Hidden Springs, Idaho, and no two cases are alike, each showcasing the unique grain and beauty of natural wood. This isn’t just a handsome case though — it’s also slim and lightweight, with a black rubber bumper that provides drop and bump protection. It won’t interfere with wireless charging, and it’s compatible with most screen protectors too.

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. 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.

Noreve Leather Case

The Galaxy S7 is a gorgeous blend of metal and glass, but you’ll find that the back picks up fingerprints and smudges very easily, and it can be a little slippery. Noreve’s leather shell case is the perfect antidote, enveloping the fragile back and frame in luxurious leather. It adds a layer of protection and makes the phone more comfortable to hold and easier to grip. It’s a fairly minimal case, so there are cutouts for buttons, ports, and other features, but it still provides some protection from bumps and knocks. If you pay a little extra, you can choose different finishes and colors of leather.

VRS Design Layered Dandy Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

You can leave the wallet or purse at home with this faux leather case from VRS Design. There’s a magnetic closure for the cover — open it up and you’ll find three card slots and a handy pocket for cash. Your Galaxy S7 slots into a shell with cutouts for the buttons and ports. There’s also an opening for the camera on the back. It’s a good looking case, but it won’t work with all wireless charging pads, and the look is spoiled a little if you fill it with cards and cash because it doesn’t sit flush with the phone. It comes in two-tone brown or black and red.

$35 from VRS Design

Samsung S-View Flip Cover

This clever folio case from Samsung features a window onto the screen, so you can see the time and incoming messages, or even take and make calls without opening the cover. There’s a shell inside that your S7 snaps into and it has the full range of cutouts you need for uninterrupted access to controls, ports, and the camera on the back. Wireless charging will still work with the case on. It’s finished in a kind of synthetic leather and comes in black.

Slim and clear cases

LoveCases White Stars and Moons Clear Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Clear cases don’t have to be boring. They’re designed to show off the beauty of your phone, but that doesn’t mean they can’t add a touch of personality to proceedings, like this out-of-this-world case from LoveCases. With its subtle white star and moon design, it’s a great way to show off your S7 — particularly if you’ve chosen one of the more eye-catching colors, like Pink Gold or Gold Platinum. Don’t be fooled by its good looks though — it doesn’t skimp on protection either, as its flexible TPU construction is scratch-proof and absorbs shock, should you drop your phone.

X-Level Slim Fit TPU Case

This case is so slim you’d be forgiven for forgetting you had a case on your phone at all! Available in a choice of five colors including Wine Red (our pick of the bunch), its matte finish adds extra grip to your S7 while ensuring it’s pleasing to the eye — and in your hand, as it feels silky smooth. Constructed from flexible TPU, it’s extremely lightweight and adds almost no bulk to your phone, and it won’t interfere with wireless charging.

Crave Dual Guard Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Crave is known for its seriously protective cases — but if you don’t want a bulky case, pick up this one. It offers advanced dual-layer protection with high-grade PC and TPU layers that cushion your phone snugly, protecting it against drops and bumps. The back of the case has a rubberized texture to give additional grip, reducing the risk of your phone slipping out of your grasp. Crave offers a 30-day no questions asked guarantee on its cases too — so if you decide it’s not quite right, you can return it for a full refund.

CoverON Paladin Series Slim Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

What looks stylish, is super slim, adds grip to your phone, and is seriously protective? Why, this case from CoverON, of course. Its dual-layer construction includes a hard polycarbonate plastic cover and a flexible, shock-absorbing TPU inner skin, for the ultimate protection for your S7. Lightweight and slim, what it lacks in bulk it more than makes up for in protection and style. Each case is sprayed with a rubberized coating to give extra grip, ideal if you’re a bit of a butterfingers. The Paladin Series case comes in gold or teal — but we think the gold has that extra stylish edge.

Case-Mate Clear Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

This minimalist case is an ultra-slim, hard shell that won’t add any real bulk to your S7’s profile, with a protective bumper to protect against impacts and falls. There are cutouts for all the phone functions and there’s a bezel that extends slightly beyond the screen to protect it when laid face down. It’s worth noting that there have been reports of the rubber part yellowing over time, but for the price, this is still a great option.

Obliq Slim Meta Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Here’s a stylish looking protective case with a brushed metallic finish on the back. It’s actually comprised of TPU for the inner layer and polycarbonate on the outside. There are chrome-style button covers for the volume and power keys and accurate openings for the camera, ports, and other features. There’s a slight lip around the screen and it should provide basic drop protection, but it’s not a really rugged case. It comes in rose gold or space gray.

Speck CandyShell Clear

Image used with permission by copyright holder

It seems a shame to cover up a phone that’s as beautiful as the Galaxy S7, but with Speck’s new CandyShell Clear case, you don’t have to. You can expect the same military-grade drop protection that you get with Speck’s full CandyShell range, but this time it comes in a completely clear package that allows the S7 to shine through. It’s a tough, dual-layer design with a raised bezel around the front to protect the screen. You can also pick up this case in clear with gold glitter, black onyx, or black onyx with gold glitter.

Protective and rugged cases

Tech21 Evo Check Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

With Flex Shock technology, you can rely on the Evo Check case for solid drop protection. It will keep your S7 safe even if it falls from 6.6 feet onto a hard surface. The cutouts for the buttons, camera, and ports are accurate, and this case won’t interfere with wireless charging. It’s comfortable to hold, too, with a stylish check pattern — and it’s up to 30% slimmer and 60% lighter than other protective cases. Tech21 offers a limited lifetime warranty on all its cases, so if your case develops a fault during its lifetime, you’ll get a replacement, free of charge. It comes in clear/white, rose/white, or smokey/black versions.

Caseology Parallax Case

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Here’s a good mix of style and protection. This flexible, shock-absorbing TPU case is available in pink, with a polycarbonate bumper in contrasting rose gold. The cutouts are generous for easy access to your phone’s ports and camera, and there are even metallic button covers with good travel and a raised lip to help safeguard your display. The soft-back finish features subtle gloss highlights and a textured pattern that feels good in hand and looks quite classy — as well as adding grip. However, there is a small Caseology logo carved into one side.

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case

Spigen offers a decent level of dual-layer protection in a stylish package for an affordable price, and that’s why its cases sell so well. The Neo Hybrid combines a flexible TPU shell, with button covers and accurate cutouts, as well as a tough polycarbonate bumper. Together, they provide military-grade drop protection. The TPU section comes in black and has a dimpled pattern on the back, which adds some grip. You can get the bumper in silver or gunmetal.

Otterbox Commuter Series

Image used with permission by copyright holder

The Commuter Series case is a dual-layer design with a flexible slipcover and a tough outer shell. It features tight-fitting port covers to keep dirt and debris out of your S7 and it comes with an adhesive screen protector to keep that display scratch-free. While this case may not be Otterbox’s flagship product, it still provides high-quality security and cushioning from falls. The only color offering for the case is black, and you can find it on sale if you head to Amazon today.

Lifeproof Fre Case

This waterproof Galaxy S7 case scores an IP68 rating, which means it can be submerged in up to two meters of water for an hour. Whether you’re a klutz or an avid outdoorsman that loves to take pictures on a long hike, this case has you covered with fall protection guaranteed from up to two meters. It also features a built-in screen protector, decent button covers, and flaps to access your phone’s various ports. You will need to use the bundled headphone adapter, however, and the case muffles the sound a bit. It comes in color options like dark gray or black.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Case

This sturdy, multi-layer case offers complete drop protection for your Galaxy S7. The shell has all the necessary cutouts, as well as port covers to keep dirt and dust out, and tactile button covers. There’s also a front panel that snaps into place securely and sports a built-in screen protector. It comes in black or a choice of contrasting colors. The case comes with a few additional bonuses. You get a holster and a 360-degree swiveling belt clip too. As rugged Galaxy S7 cases go, this is a bargain. Shop for it in black, blue, white, or green.
