Let's take a look at Spigen's flexible, clear case for the Galaxy S7.
The Galaxy S7 deserves some protection against the wear and tear you throw at it, but you don't want to carry around the something so big it can't fit in your pocket. This might be the case for you!
Let's break things down in terms of style, features, and design.
This case is a one-piece, flexible TPU sleeve that is easy to put on and easy to take off. As you might have already guessed, this case is completely clear. There is not a lot of grip when holding in your hand, although it is definitely better than having no case at all.
Spigen's Liquid Crystal case allows you to show off your phone's original style — note that clear TPU cases are known to yellow as they age.
You will no longer be forced to remove and replace your case when you wish to charge wirelessly. This case is thin enough to charge through so you won't have to worry as your phone sits unprotected on the charger.
This case is designed to be simple and thus does not have a built-in kickstand. Although, the back of the case is entirely flat, and will accept any third-party kickstands you choose. Spigen makes their own multipurpose accessory called a Style Ring that is compatible with this case.
With a raised lip around the camera cutout, Spigen's case offers protection for your lens when your phone is on its back. If you prefer setting your phone on its front, a raised bezel along the edges of the case keeps your screen away from any damaging surfaces.
This case does not feature air-cushion technology in its corners, so if you're particularly concerned about corner drops and resulting webbed cracks, you might want to opt for one with more protection.
The side buttons are covered by the case, but you will experience no change in functionality. The bottom ports and speaker are left open, as is the entirety of the S7's screen. This case is indeed thin and lightweight, perfect if you prefer a slim everyday carry.
The bottom line
Truly minimalistic and designed to show off your phone's original beauty, the Liquid Crystal case is a fine option for anyone avoiding bulk or extra features. If you'd like a case that moves your phone toward bulletproof, you will want to look elsewhere.
