Best Samsung Galaxy S7 Cases

Samsung may have just released the incredible Galaxy S10 but that doesn't mean the Galaxy S7 should be tossed to the wayside. It's still a good phone that deserves protection..

Whether you intend to show off its original design with a clear case, or keep it insulated in TPU armour, or just want it to look cool and stylish, we've narrowed down some of the best cases out there.

Remember most cases for the Galaxy S6 won't fit the Galaxy S7, since the S7 is fatter (7.9mm vs 6.8mm), a little shorter and narrower (142.4x69.6mm vs 143.4x70.5mm).

If you want to upgrade though, read our reviews on the Galaxy S8Galaxy S8 Plus, and of course the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus and of course the Galaxy S10.

Olixar FlexiShield Samsung Galaxy S7 Case

We’re a big fan of Olixar’s FlexiShield range of non-slip gel cases. They won’t hurt your bank balance, at less than a tenner, and they won’t detract from your phone’s unique style – after all, you chose it because you liked the look of it, right?

An ultra-slim design adds little bulk to the Galaxy S7, so it’ll slip into a pocket just as easily as ever. And as you’d expect you’ll still be able to access all the important ports and connections, so you never need take off the case (and if you do, it’s soft shell makes doing so easy).

Ringke Fusion Samsung Galaxy S7 Case

Another clear plastic Galaxy S7 case comes from well known case maker Ringke with its Fusion bumper shell. It features dust caps for your ports and connections to keep them free from grime.

Available in Smoke Black, Clear and Rose Gold.

VRS Design Crystal Bumper Samsung Galaxy S7 Case

We also like the VRS Design Crystal Bumper case for Galaxy S7. It’s not completely clear, but its gold edging adds a little touch of sophistication to your Samsung phone.

Plus, it has met the MIL-STD-810G military drop tests, so it should keep your phone safe (while also keeping it stylish). 

Obliq Slim Meta Samsung Galaxy S7 Case

Most phone cases are made from cheap plastic and are designed to protect more than to look good. But you don’t have to compromise: a metal (or at least partially metal) case might be a tad more expensive, but it looks good and offers decent protection.

We like the Obliq Slim Meta for Galaxy S7. This ultra-thin poycarbonate shell offers full-body protection, while its brushed-metal rear panel adds style. There’s a matte surface for added grip and, naturally, full access to all ports and connections.

Peli Guardian Samsung Galaxy S7 Case

With the Galaxy S7 Samsung returns the IP68 waterproofing it removed from the Galaxy S5 for the S6, and it uses tough Gorilla Glass 4. But it’s still just glass, and this phone is not invincible.

The Peli ProGear caught our eye for its dual-layer impact-resistant protective case. It’s made from anti-slip material and is slimmer than many such rugged cases. The Peli also comes with a lifetime guarantee.

It's currently unavailable in the US.

Spigen Rugged Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S7

We love Spigen cases. Partly because we often find out about new phone features ahead of their launch through leaked Spigen case images, but mostly because they’re great.

Spigen sells two tough cases for the Galaxy S7 that caught our eye. The Rugged Armor is a flexible TPU case and the better-looking of the two, with glossy accents, carbon fibre textures and tactile buttons. While the Spigen Tough Armor...

Spigen Tough Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S7

The Spigen Tough Armor is a hard case that’ll do an even better job of protecting the Galaxy S7 with its military-grade "Air Cushion Technology". It has a shock-absorbing TPU interior and a polycarbonate exterior, plus a raised lip to protect the screen.

Carved Galaxy S7 Traveler Wood Case

A sort of combination of the previous two styles is the Traveler Wood Case by US company, Carved. The firm makes stunning designs made from wood that's thin but doesn't break.

There a loads of laser cut designs to choose from so there will no doubt be something that suits your style, from the American Flag to city skylines to world maps. Some are fairly plain while others are packed with colour.

The Carved Traveler offers a rubber bumper case that covers all the metal frame and buttons. This means more protection, and the case itself is less likely to break.

There's also a textured grip down the sides of the rubber and, as you would expect, a cutout for the camera and flash.

Buy the Carved Traveler Wood Case for  Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge starting at $39.

Snakehive Wooden Wallet Case for Samsung Galaxy S7

If you're keen to merge smartphone and wallet then there are plenty of options. This one from Snakehive is one of the best we've seen, part of its Wilderness Collection.

You've got a choice between four kinds of wood, and we particularly like the red rosewood one, though there's also bamboo, walnut and cherrywood.

The wood is a great addition and the case also has two slots for cards on the inside and a handy magnetic closure to stop the cover coming open when in your hand or bag.

Snakehive makes a whole host of other styles of cases for the Samsung Galaxy S7. View them all here.
