You'll get a nice form fit from this case, and the embossed buttons are easy to press while the case is on the phone. You can grab one on Amazon for just over $10.

LifeProof FRE

LifeProof FRE Galaxy S7

For the ultimate protection, LifeProof is a brand that sits at the top. While the Galaxy S7 may already be waterproof, some additional waterproofing along with drop protection is a no-brainer for many.

The case is designed this time around to be thinner than previous generations, while still providing the same amount of worry-free protection for your phone. You'll pay for the added protection, but it beats the constant worry about breaking your new investment.

Searching for something a little more on the rugged side? The Unicorn Beetle Pro provides front and back protection for the Galaxy S7, including a durable swivel holster for quick-draw access at your side.

For those who prefer to protect their Galaxy S7 with a case while still showing off the phone's sleek appearance, Ringke's Fusion crystal case is definitely one the best options out there. Its simple design is protective enough to handle common drops without bulking things up. Port plugs on the bottom help to keep out dirt and debris, but can always be permanently removed if they're more of a nuisance. Side buttons are easily accessible through the clear flexible plastic along the edges, and the smooth polycarbonate shell sports a large cutout for the S7's camera features.

Otterbox Commuter GS7

OtterBox's lineup of smartphone cases has evolved over the years, and while the company still focuses on adding protection to your phone, they now do so in a far more stylish way. To keep your new Galaxy S7 protected, OtterBox will be offering its Commuter and Defender series, the most well known of the variety, as well as the newer Symmetry and Strada series cases. Each of them offers a slight advantage over the others, so it will depend on your needs as to which is best for you. Pricing starts at $19.95.

Spigen Tough Armor Case

Spigen's Tough Armor case rocks military-grade protection with its dual-layer design and Air Cushion Technology. The inner skin features a webbed design that the Galaxy S7 rests on, including air pockets in all 4 corners that help handle shock. The raised lip around the front ensures the Galaxy S7's display is always clear from rubbing on flat surfaces, and the glossy bezel around the camera grants clear photos at all times. Unlike the Spigen Slim Armor, the Tough Armor case comes without a flimsy kickstand, leaving a smooth look and feel to its exterior plastic shell. This case comes in gunmetal, champagne gold, and black, starting at $19.

Samsung S View Cover

Samsung S View Cover

Samsung's S View Cover series for the Galaxy S7 is just about as cool as it gets for phone cases. So long as you have NFC enabled on your phone, you essentially get a small window to your Galaxy S7 that lets you answer and decline calls, view message previews, activate the camera, and a bunch more.

Your Galaxy S7 clips into the bumper inside and then you just fold the cover over and, though the display is turned off, the preview screen still shows up through the window. Many folks want a flip cover to protect their phone, but it can be cumbersome to pull it out and open it up, and it's definitely conspicuous in class or at a meeting.

The S View Cover is available in black, gold, and silver to match your Galaxy S7. If you want a super cool, interactive case that does a lot more than just protect your Galaxy S7, then the S View Cover is definitely worth a look.

Society6 cases

If you're really into having a case that shows off your style and the stuff you like, then Society6 is the place to get it. They curate art from people everywhere and put it on cases, jeweller, clothing, prints, rugs, you name it – they slap art on it.

These cases are made of hard plastic, with a softer rubber/silicone inside for shock absorption, so you're protected and you've got a Galaxy S7 with a beautiful design on it. You don't just have to limit yourself to pretty stuff, though; they have fan art from pop culture and more. I had a Batman case for my cough iPhone cough before I switched to Android and it worked wonderfully.

The only downside of the protective nature of these cases is that the headphone jack is kind of difficult to get at. If you listen to music on your phone all day, every day, then you might want to consider an alternative. That being said, if you have some decent Bluetooth headphones, you're set.

Some of the best-looking cases I've ever seen come from Society6, so if you want something that's going to make people ask where you got it, hit 'em up!
