Samsung’s latest super-sized smartphone is a real supermodel, and it refuses to be overshadowed by the Galaxy Note 5, which launched alongside it. The Edge Plus boasts a 5.7-inch screen that curves away at the edges, just like its diminutive sister device, the S6 Edge. It looks fantastic and its functional too. However, it’s not the most comfortable phone in the world to handle, and worse, if you do drop it, that screen will cost $200 to replace. You could save yourself a lot of money by picking up a case. Here are the best Galaxy S6 Edge Plus cases available right now.
Here’s a nice, slim case that will offer basic protection from the vagaries of everyday life. The NGP is flexible, so it’s really easy to fit, will absorb any nasty shocks, and guard against scratches. The malleable material is translucent, so you can see the Samsung logo and design shining through. The cut-outs are accurate, and won’t interfere with the camera performance or any ports. The button covers are easy to find and press. You can get this case in black, white, pink, or blue.
If you want a high quality, genuine leather case, then check out Case-Mate’s Wallet Folio Case. The black leather exterior is traced with neat stitching and there’s a camera opening on the back. Open the folio and your S6 Edge Plus sits in a Barely There shell, one of Case-Mate’s minimalist, polycarbonate cases. On the opposite side, the cover has three credit card slots, an ID slot with a window, and a big cash pocket at the back. A magnetic closure means the case stays shut.
The CandyShell is a two layer case with a malleable inner liner and button covers, surrounded by a tough shiny shell. Drop protection is its key selling point, and this case hits the military drop test standard 801G. A raised lip prevents the screen from touching the ground should your S6 Edge Plus land face down. The cut-outs are well-placed, so camera operation, audio quality, and port access aren’t hampered by it. Speck offers this case in a variety of different color combinations.
You get a decent level of protection in a slim form with this case from Spigen. The inner shell is TPU with a raised bezel on the front to protect the screen, and button covers that are flush with the outer polycarbonate layer that slots on top. The case’s inner section is black and the outer shell is offered in contrasting gun metal, gold, or metal slate. There’s also a two-tone violet option. You’ll find a small silver kickstand on the back, which is handy for propping it in landscape view.
You’ll enjoy a good level of protection with this case, but without adding too much bulk. The Symmetry series is a one-piece case with a classic blend of shock absorbent rubber on the inside and tough polycarbonate on the outside. There’s a bezel at the front to protect the screen, but the frame falls away at the sides to give you unobstructed access to the edges of the display. The button covers work well, the openings are precise, and all the features of the S6 Edge Plus work just fine with the case on. You can opt for plain black or a range of contrasting color combos.
This is an unobtrusive case that combines a clear back panel made from strong polycarbonate, with a flexible TPU bumper featuring built-in button covers. You can get the bumper part in clear or opt for black, orange, blue, or green. There’s also a metal kickstand bearing the Obliq logo, that’s held in place with a magnet when you don’t need it. The openings are generous, so there’s nothing to get in the way of the sensors, camera, or ports. It’s not a rugged case, so don’t expect major drop protection, and the clear back is liable to pick up scratches, but it’s a good deal for the money.
A tried and tested duo of soft impact resistant core and hard outer shell will keep your S6 Edge Plus safe from harm. This case meets military drop test standard 810G. It also features skid pads, so it won’t slip off surfaces, and large tactile button covers that are easy to find and use. The cut-outs offer full access to the camera, sensors, and ports. There’s a lip on the front to keep the screen off the ground, but you don’t get a screen protector with this case, as you do with some others in the UAG line-up. In addition to this smoky version you can get the same design with a completely clear body or in red.
Known for heavy-duty protective cases, Trident is a good brand, but it does also occasionally offer something more minimalist. This simple TPU case for the S6 Edge Plus is flexible, completely transparent, and comfortable to hold. It adds grip for the hand or surfaces, and a thin layer of drop protection, without impacting much on the stylish look of the S6 Edge Plus. It’s a lightweight case for people seeking something simple.
The attraction of this case is the secret panel on the back which opens up to reveal a compartment big enough for a couple of credit cards. The construction is a typical blend of TPU on the inside, with polycarbonate on the outside. The black TPU portion includes a raised bezel top and bottom to protect the screen and button covers on the spines. The polycarbonate panel with sliding door comes in red, yellow, silver, or gold. It’s not the classiest look around, but it’s a functional case at a reasonable price.
You can’t really go wrong at this price if you just want a clear case for protection from light damage and scratches. This case has a polycarbonate back panel and a TPU bumper. The bumper features good button covers and port covers to keep dust and debris out. There’s a good sized opening for the camera. You can fit a strap at the bottom corner, if you’re so inclined. It’s a slim case, so drop protection will be limited.
