The unique design of the S6 Edge make it a little harder to find a case. Between the unique shape of the screen, and slightly different build size, the average case designed for the regular S6 won’t fit your new S6 Edge. However, there are a few companies that will have their S6 Edge cases on sale the week this new phone comes out. Here are ten great cases you can buy for your S6 Edge. Almost all of these cases should be available on launch day, at least while supplies last. Read on to see our top ten picks.
Still on the fence about whether you’re getting an S6 or S6 Edge? Check out our post comparing the S6 vs. S6 Edge, or peruse our list of the best S6 cases you can buy right now.
1. Spigen Ultra Hybrid Galaxy S6 Edge Case
It seems a little silly that people go to the trouble of picking out just the right color for their new phone, only to cover up the whole body of the phone with a case. For people who are crazy about the color option they selected for their new phone, a clear case is a great choice.
This clear-body case comes with a variety of color options for the bumpers. A slim, transparent design lets you show off the lines, color, and logo on your S6 Edge. The bumpers make use of air cushion technology, which helps to disperse the impact on corners when you drop your phone.
Why buy one case, when you can buy three? This three-in-one S6 Edge consists of a single case, but with the option to swap out one of three interchangeable bumpers. One set comes with emerald green, pearl, and pink bumpers. Another set gives you the option of gold, silver, and black bumpers.
This case style is nice because of its slim profile, and the ability to swap out different bumpers. These cases are also treated so they will be resistant to both fingerprints and scratches. If you prefer cases that are slim, and feel like they are barely there, this is a good choice.
Price: $14.99-$16.99, depending on color options selected
3. Verus Air Space Cushion Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Case
This dual-layer case consists of a soft, shock-absorbent inner core. On top of that, there’s hard plastic shell. There are several color options to choose from, though the selection still feels a little bit limited. If you like cases that come in several pieces, this is a good choice for you. The dual-layer construction of this case makes it feel more durable.
4. Speck Products CandyShell Grip Case for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Speck has been making their CandyShell Grip case for years now, and offers this case style for a wide range of smartphones. The S6 Edge version of this case continues the same design tradition as earlier version of this case. There are raised, rubberized lines all over the back of the case. These lines make the case easier to grip, no matter whether you’re using your phone in landscape or portrait orientation. That extra grip is really nice for times when you are using your phone one-handed, such as while texting or taking a photo.
5. Bomea Rugged Series Belt Clip Holster for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
This holster is spacious enough to fit the S6 or S6 Edge. You can use this holster to stash your phone “naked,” but its also roomy enough to fit one of these phones with a relatively thick case on it. The makers of this holster say that the S6 Edge should fit comfortably inside, even with an OtterBox or LifeProof case on it. Other “thick armor” types of cases should also work within the confines of this holster. If you like having your phone at your hip, this is a great accessory for your new S6 Edge.
It may have one of the silliest model names out there, but the Unicorn Beetle case from SUPCASE has developed something of a cult following. It’s a rugged case that is also affordable, and available in multiple colors. The shape of the case makes it easy to grip, while an impact-resistant bumper gives you added peace of mind. A 360-degree swiveling belt clip holster makes this ideal for people who don’t want to store their phone in a pocket or bag all day.
It can be tricky to find an inexpensive wallet case. While this cute wallet from Tauri may not be made from genuine leather, it is a nice option for people on a budget. And after spending so much cash to get the S6 Edge, you might appreciate a case that’s easy on your wallet.
This wallet case is available in blue, black, hot pink, and purple. There’s room for three cards, as well as a separate slot for stashing your cash. A precise cutout on the back of the case lets you use your camera, without having to remove the case first. There’s also a kickstand, which is great for watching movies at your desk.

It can be used as a long-term case, or as a temporary placeholder case that you use for a month or so until the case you’ve been eyeing becomes available.
10. Ionic ACTIVE Sport Armband for Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge
A hard plastic case is great for everyday use, but for people who take their smartphone to the gym, a different style of case can be a better fit.
