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
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
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
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
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
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
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
This case offers complete protection for your Galaxy S7 Edge. It’s made of a combination of flexible TPU and hard polycarbonate, and comes with reinforced corners that offer decent drop protection. There are also tactile button covers, port covers to keep dust out, and a frame that fits on the front to keep your phone’s display safe. It also comes with a handy holster and belt clip that can rotate 360 degrees. The case is a bit difficult to put on and remove — it can also interfere with wireless charging — but if you want something protective at a reasonable price, it’s worth a look.
Urban Armor Gear Composite Case
You’ll be surprised how lightweight the UAG case is because it looks heavy and industrial. It’s a solid protective case with additional grip on the sides and skid pads to stop your S7 Edge from sliding around on the dash or table. It meets military drop test standards, with plenty of protection in the corners where you need it most. There are also large button covers that make it especially easy to use your power and volume keys.
Cover-Up WoodBack Explorer Case
Here’s another wooden case option for the S7 Edge, one that is available with a wide range of natural wood grain finishes for the back panel. It holds your phone in a black polycarbonate shell that’s slightly flexible and features textured strips on both sides to really enhance your grip. There are very slim button covers and good-sized openings for the ports, camera, and other functions.
