This new case line from Incipio is fun and stylish, combining translucent backs with different colored metallic accents and patterns. You’ll find accurate cut-outs for the ports and camera, and well-defined button covers. It’s a shock absorbent case to prevent drop damage and the coating is scratch-resistant, so there’s no need to worry about scuffs or scrapes. If you want something a little different that’s sure to turn heads, check these S7 cases out.
It seems a shame to cover up a design as beautiful as the Galaxy S7, but Speck’s new CandyShell Clear case means that 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. There’s also a dark tinted Onyx version of this case.
These sleek, transparent cases feature eye-catching laser etched metal designs in silver or gold. They also provide full six-sided protection from drops with heavily reinforced corners and raised lips that keep your S7 from coming into contact with the ground. Your phone should survive falls of up to 6 feet, and there are accurate cut-outs for the ports and camera, and protective button covers that are easy to use.
The chunky, protective UAG case comes in a wide choice of colors. It has reinforced corners and skid pads and the sides have a rubberized grip. It meets military drop test standards, so you don’t need to worry about your S7 if it should take a tumble. You’ll also find large tactile button covers that are easy to use and generous openings for the ports and camera.
The Commuter Series case is a dual layer design with a flexible slip cover and a tough outer shell. It feature 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. Though it’s not Otterbox’s most protective case, you can still expect solid drop protection. It comes in a plain black, or in a range of two-tone combinations.
This protective case provides solid drop protection for falls from up to 4 feet and it’s also IP44 rated, so you can take it out in the rain. Dog & Bone do a line of fully waterproof cases, but the Splash is designed to offer a mid-level of protection in a slim package, so it won’t cope with being submerged. The bumper is shock absorbent and there’s a tempered glass impact screen, so it does provide all-round coverage. There are also covers for the buttons and ports. The back is clear, but the bumper comes in orange, purple, pink, or black.
This is an extremely strong and durable case which combines malleable TPE plastic for shock absorption with hard polycarbonate plastic. It also features a handy and sturdy aluminum kickstand for propping your S7 in landscape to watch a movie. There are port covers to keep dust out your ports and a built-in screen protector, for all-round coverage. You also get a removable belt clip or holster with this case. Trident offers a range of optional accessories that clip onto the Kraken including mounts for a bike, windshield, and more.
