10 Best Samsung Galaxy S7 Cases And Covers

Last Updated: February 27, 2016

The smartphone space is not only crowded these days, it’s also fiercely competitive. And that’s precisely why almost all manufacturers, no matter how big or small they might be, release their latest and greatest flagships every year, to attract buyers. But if there’s one company (other than Apple) whose new smartphone launches generate the most buzz every year, it’s undoubtedly Samsung. And this year, the story is no different.

Launched at Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event during the recently concluded Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a beast of a device, and certainly one of the (if not the) best Android flagships that you can get. And with the pre-orders now live, we’re pretty sure that many of you already have your Galaxy S7 on the way. But a smartphone this impressive (and costly) requires solid protection, against all kinds of dings, scratches, and falls. Right?

Of course, and that’s why we’ve curated this listing of the 10 best Samsung Galaxy S7 cases and covers. So what are you waiting for? Read on, and get your brand new Galaxy the protection it needs.

Then there are raised edges that protect the phone’s screen from scratches. The case has a brushed metal look, and is available in multiple colors, such as Shine Gold, and Satin Silver.

5. SamsungGalaxy S7  S-View Flip Cover

Third party cases and covers are no doubt great, but they hardly match up to original accessories. And that’s why the Samsung S-View Flip Cover is an absolute must have for the Galaxy S7. What makes it unique is that you can check the notifications, and answer/reject incoming calls, even when the flip cover is closed. All you have to do to act on relevant notifications, is swipe on the front folio. The cradle design takes the effort out of putting on/taking off the case, and the hard plastic corners further add to the protection.

6. Galaxy S7 Wireless Charging Battery Pack

Although the Galaxy S7 has a pretty good 3000 mAh battery, having a bit of an extra juice is never bad. The case in point here is the Samsung Wireless Charging Battery Pack. And while it’s true that it’s not a case, it’s included in our listing because once it’s on your Galaxy S7, it feels just like that. The pack includes a mammoth, 3400 mAh battery that starts charging the Galaxy S7 (via Qi Inductive Charging technology), the moment you snap it to the smartphone. What’s more, there’s also a four level battery status LED indicator that lets you check how much battery power is remaining.
