13 best Samsung Galaxy S7 cases right now



The Samsung Galaxy S7 is powerful, stylish and has a great camera, but it needs a case. That glass and metal body won't look so nice if you drop it on a concrete floor.

Despite that whole 'tougher' and waterproof thing, most people will still want to wrap up their new S7 in a protective case. These things aren't cheap, after all, and all that glass and metal won't take to kindly to a full-on pavement face plant.

Thankfully, with this being one of the hottest phones of the year, there's already a wide selection of top notch Galaxy S7 cases on the market. We've rounded up a few we particularly like the look of.

A good number of the cases on this list are from Samsung itself. The company has really gone to town this year with a commendable range of cases rather than just endless variations on a theme.

Obliq Slim Meta

The Slim Meta gives the Samsung Galaxy S7 a sleek, brushed aluminium-like finish, though it actually provides reassuringly solid dual-layer polycarbonate protection. This extends to button protectors, so those precariously exposed volume dials wont get wrecked in a drop.

Ballistic Urbanite Select

Ballistic's cases tend to reinforce the corners of the case with extra padding. Given that these invariably bear the brunt of any droppages, it's a smart idea. The Urbanite also looks distinctly smart, with a funky wood finish.

Speck CandyShell

Fancy something a little snazzier to cover your Galaxy S7? Speck's CandyShell range provides a number of lairy (and not-so-lairy) designs to catch the eye. Don't let the flashy looks deceive you though - Speck's cases are grippy, snug, and tough to the tune of a military certification.

S7 case

Spigen Slim Armor

We like Spigen's Slim Armor case because it provides rugged protection through a dual-layer design and Air Cushion technology, as well as a raised lip for screen protection. It also throws in a kickstand for hands-free media viewing. Bonus!

Price: £14.99 / $29.99

S7 case

Samsung Galaxy S7 Clear View Cover

The Samsung Clear View Cover is actually a full-on folio case, but the front cover is semi-transparent, so you can still see the display. In fact, you can even interact with the phone while the cover is closed, answering calls and skipping tracks without lifting the lid.

Price: £44.99

S7 case

Samsung Galaxy S7 S View Cover

This Samsung case is a little cheaper than the Clear View Cover, but it still offers all-round protection. The difference here is that there's a small cut-out for the Galaxy S7's always-on display feature, letting you keep an eye on the date and time even when it's closed up.

Price: £34.99 / $49.99

S7 case

Mophie Juice Pack

This third party case isn't available just yet, but for some it will be a must-buy, despite the high price. Mophie has made a name for itself making smartphone cases that also extend the battery life of the phone, and the Galaxy S7 version is no exception. Its 3300mAh battery grants 60 percent more battery life, whilst also supporting wireless charging.

Price: £89.95

S7 case

Samsung Keyboard Cover

Back to Samsung's impressive range, and the Samsung Keyboard Cover has to be the most outlandish of the lot. It's a standard rear-case, but it comes with a clip-on physical keyboard that essentially gives you S7 a full BlackBerry typing experience. This one will be big with the business crowd.

Price: £49.99 / $59.99

S7 case

LifeProof Fre

As the name suggests, LifeProof makes cases that can take a real beating. Of course, the Galaxy S7 is already IP68 certified, which means it can survive a brief dip in water and dust. But the LifeProof Fre is listed as "Waterproof, dirtproof, snowproof, dropproof," so you can bet it provides extra protection. Sure enough, it's thick edges pretty much envelope the device, protecting it from droppages.

Price: £70 / $78

S7 case

Samsung Galaxy S7 LED Cover

Samsung's LED Cover reminds us a lot of the HTC Dot View case, which has been in production for a couple of years now. It's a folio case that features a funky LED display on the front showing the time and other basic notifications. As will Samsung's other covers, you can also accept calls and control your alarm without opening the lid.

Buy Now: Samsung Galaxy S7 LED Cover at Amazon.co.uk (£24) | Amazon.com ($24.99)

Price: £64.99 / $69.99

S7 case

OtterBox Symmetry

OtterBox is another top notch rugged case supplier, and its new Symmetry series looks like a good bet for protecting you S7. Its certified Drop+ protection offers "dual defensive layers" and a raised, bevelled edge that will protect that perilously exposed AMOLED display.

Buy Now: OtterBox Symmetry at Amazon.co.uk (£15) | Amazon.com ($15)

Price: £29.99 / $39.99

S7 case

Samsung Galaxy S7 Back Pack Case

Think of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Back Pack Case as Samsung's own official take on the Mophie Juice Pack. It too is a rear cover that also provides extra charge - in this case 2000mAh. That's slightly less, but it does look sleeker.

Buy Now: Samsung Galaxy S7 Back Pack Case at Amazon.co.uk (£43) | Amazon.com ($34.99)

Price: £91

S7 case

Case-Mate Tough Naked

No matter how nice the case, it's always a shame when you have to cover up your new phone - particularly when it's as handsome as the Samsung Galaxy S7. The Case-Mate Tough Naked (steady) minimises the visual impact whilst providing decent protection thanks to an opaque bumper and clear plastic back.

Buy Now: Case-Mate Tough Naked at Amazon.co.uk (£10) | Amazon.com ($9.49)

The Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal is a gorgeous minimalist option for those who are looking for waist-height drop protection whilst still preserving the beauty of the phone. http://www.amazon.com/Spige...

I'll stick to the Incipio DualPro cases. By far the best cases I've ever used.

all these fake accounts with fake generic names promoting their company products smh

Thanks for your recommendation because I'm a dudette and we do like nice things. But your case is black at the back which is boring so I'm think I'm going for the "The Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal is a gorgeous minimalist" recommended by Chris above you. So far this suits my taste just fine.


July 18, 2016, 12:32 pm

Oooh you sound like "The Man"!

Before you recommend lifeproof fre for the s7 you should check out the charger hatch defect. Just look at the reviews at lifeproof site and amazon. Mine has broken 3 times and you have to pay for shipping each time. I have to keep it closed with duct-tape.
