The best Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge cases

With its slim body and top-of-the-line (well, for 2016 anyway) specs, Samsung’s refined Galaxy S7 Edge is both gorgeous and comfortable as a larger smartphone that lasts for years. The curved display is fragile and expensive to fix if damaged, and the aluminum body shows dings and dents if you drop it. Perhaps you have an older phone whose case is wearing out, or you’re lucky enough to inherit an S7 Edge — either way, the first thing you want to do is protect it from harm. Here are some of the top-rated cases and covers available for your precious handset.

Clayco Full-Body Rugged Case

Clayco Full-body Rugged Case

Coupled with the sleek design of the Hera Series, the Clayco Rugged Case for your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge provides a strong shield against impact and wear and tear. The form-fitting case features a touch-sensitive screen protector, shock-absorbing TPU bumpers, and a hard Polycarbonate exterior. A raised bezel protects your screen and camera while the back cover is lined with shock-absorbing TPU within a scratch-resistant plate. The front cover is made from impact-resistant polycarbonate. It comes in gold, rose gold, blue, or black.

Crave Strong Guard Protection Series Case

Crave Strong Guard Protection Series Case

Despite its heavy-duty, shock-resistant hard-back TPU case, the Crave sports a slim, lightweight design that lets you fit your Galaxy S7 Edge easily into a purse or pocket for the ultimate in flexibility and mobility. Precise cutouts give you immediate access to front- and rear-facing cameras, volume buttons, and headphone port.

Kiomy Galaxy S7 Edge Case for Girls-Women

Galaxy S7 Edge Case for Girls - Women

This case is advertised for girls and women, presumably because only the females of the planet love flower patterns — but of course, we know that’s not true. Kiomy offers so many colors and patterns that guys owe it to themselves to at least check out these absolutely gorgeous, functional, protective cases for their Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The illustrations appear over an elegant, clear TPU texture design with air cushion bumpers at the corners. The case is thin, light, and super flexible so it’s easy to install and remove, with precision cutouts for access to all handset functions.

Pelican Protector Case

The Pelican protextive case provides drop protection for your S7 Edge and features a plastic shell and some shock-absorbing TPR that will take the sting out of any impact. The tactile button covers are built to last, and there are accurate openings for your phone’s camera and ports. Alongside the grippy exterior is a protective lip at the top and bottom. Cutaways at the sides ensure you can always take advantage of the curved edges. You can pair it with a screen protector for complete peace of mind, though its thickness may impede wireless charging.

Spigen Slim Armor Case

Spigen Slim Armor Galaxy S7 Edge Case

With a tried and tested combination of flexible TPU and tough polycarbonate, the Spigen Slim Armor scores a military-grade protection rating. Your S7 Edge should survive a typical fall unscathed with this case on, and there’s a raised bezel around the screen that will help keep it safe. The cut-outs are also accurate, so there’s plenty of room for port access and no interference with the camera. The button covers are flush with the frame, and work quite well. There’s an extendable, plastic kickstand on the back, but it’s not very sturdy. This is also a pretty smooth case, so don’t expect much in the way of grip.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Leather Case

Classy, padded leather with neat stitching provides all-round protection with this wallet case from Noreve. It opens folio-style to reveal a couple of slots for cards and a thin shell that holds your S7 Edge securely in place. It’s a minimal shell, so it maintains easy access to your buttons and ports, and there’s a good-sized cut-out on the back for the camera. The cover is held in place by a classic stud closure. You can also customize this case with a variety of leather finishes and colors.

VRS Design Dandy Wallet Case

Here’s a folio case with three card slots in the cover and a money pocket. There’s also a magnetic closure that helps keep your belongings secure, which is handy if you intend to stow cards and cash. Your S7 Edge slots into the TPU shell inside, but it’s molded together securely, with a fake leather cover that wraps around the outside. There are also openings for the ports, buttons, and camera on the back. It provides all-round protection, but sadly, it’s thick enough that it may interfere with wireless charging, even if you do have one of the best wireless chargers.

Ballistic Urbanite Select

Ballistic Case for Samsung S7 Edge

This slim protective case features Ballistic’s trademark reinforced corners for impact absorption, providing real drop protection at up to six feet. There’s also a raised lip to safeguard that precious screen. There is a choice of two stylish finishes: dark ash wood or black buffalo leather. The underlying body and corners are flexible, black plastic and there are well-defined button covers that are easy to find and press without looking.

Speck CandyShell Grip

Speck CandyShell Grip Case

One of our favorite case lines, the CandyShell Grip is available for the Galaxy S7 Edge in classic black and white. The ribbed pattern is stylish, but it also serves an important function by adding grip, making you less likely to drop your phone. The dual layer design is enough to deflect damage and absorb impact shock and there’s a raised lip to prevent your screen from hitting the ground. You’ll also find great button covers and generous openings for ports and the camera.

Supcase Full-body Rugged Holster Case

With the Galaxy S7 Edge, you’ll find you always have full-coverage protection. This particular case approaches protection from every corner— you get both flexible TPU and hard polycarbonate, but you also get reinforced corners that help limit damage from drops, bumps, and shock. The case has a button and port cover to stop any dust and debris from damaging your phone. The Galaxy S7 Edge also comes with a cover to protect your screen, a handy holster, and a belt clip that rotates 360 degrees. While this case may be difficult to install and can get in the way of wireless charging, it is incredibly budget-friendly.

Urban Armor Gear Composite Case

UAG Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

While the UAG case may look hardcore and heavy-duty, it’s actually incredibly lightweight. Some of the sturdier features on this product include added grips and padding along the case’s sides to help stop your phone from sliding off a surface or slipping from your hand. This Urban Armor case holds up against military drop tests and is reinforced on every corner. You’ll also appreciate the giant button covers that make it easy to turn your phone on or off and adjust your volume.

Cover-Up WoodBack Explorer Case

For a more natural and minimal look, consider this WoodBack Explorer case. They’re available in a variety of natural wood finishes. It secures your phone in a flexible, black, polycarbonate shelter and employs strips on each side of your phone to ensure a no-slip grip. The WoodBack Explorer case also comes with non-bulky covers to protect buttons and sizable port openings for things like your camera lens or speakers.
