Best Galaxy S7 Cases in 2022
Still rocking your Galaxy S7? It's still holding up pretty well after all these years, and you'll need a great case to help it last a few more. There are dozens of great options for the device, from clear cases that show off your phone's beauty to rugged ones, and even wallet cases for when you want to cut down on your pocket carry.
Thin and clear
You don't have to hide the beauty of your phone to keep it protected, and the Liquid Crystal case from Spigen proves that. This case offers protection without sacrificing the ability to see the color choice that you made on your initial purchase. 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.
This transparent case lets the beauty and color of the phone shine through, but the kicker is that it comes with a pair of tempered glass screen protectors in the box to protect your phone further. The case has a hard PC back and soft TPU silicone bumper, along with four airbag corners to offer full device protection. Plus, there are cut-outs for all ports and controls, including the speaker, cameras, volume, and charging port, so you won't miss a beat.
Everyone's perennial favorite case, OtterBox comes through yet again with the Symmetry Series. It offers guaranteed protection and comes in a wide range of colors and patterns so that you can add a bit of your own flair (though Amazon itself only sells the red version now). Keep in mind that this case will add some bulk to your S7, but you're protected all around by the blend of silicone and polycarbonate plastic for excellent shock absorption and drop protection.
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.
Speck's single-piece CandyShell Grip features rubber ribs on the outside of its soft plastic shell, offering extra grip, so you don't drop it, as well as some shock absorption and a stylish aesthetic. The inside is flexible silicone to provide more cushioning in case it happens to fall.
Extra drop protection
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. On the front is a built-in plastic screen protector that's surrounded by a thick rim to keep the display raised from flat surfaces. The case itself utilizes a shock-absorbent TPU and durable polycarbonate to handle harsh impacts.
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 one of 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.
Spigen's Tough Armor case features military-grade protection, and the inner skin has a webbed design that the Galaxy S7 rests on, including air pockets in all four 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.
Make a statement
Don't let the fun neon designs fool you, which range from bright green to hot pink, as well as some florals: this case offers serious protection for the phone. It includes two layers: a hard polycarbonate outer layer to protect against drops, bumps, scratches, and dents, and soft silicone inside to absorb shock and impact.
If you really wanna dress up your Galaxy S7 and bling is the name of the game, then check out this case that features pink, green, and silver glitter and sparkles, including tiny pink heart confetti. Slim and sleek, it is anti-scratch and offers a soft air cushion design that makes it shockproof. It even comes with a neat magnetic carry ring on the back that can be used as a rotating kickstand as well.
Spigen's Rugged Armor is perfect for folks who want slim but bold protection. This one-piece case is made from flexible TPU, which is lightweight and shock-absorbent. Rugged Armor is military drop-tested, and this case features Spigen's "Air Cushion Technology, which just a fancy way of saying air pockets in the corners, which cradle a blow where your phone is most vulnerable.
Hold your cards
Not only does this handy case come with a slot to hold your essential cards, like a credit, ID, or room key card, but it also has a cosmetic mirror inside so you can check your make-up, hair, or make sure there's nothing in your teeth. The design can also flip back to function as a kickstand. Made of premium PU leather, there are different color options, and each case comes with a removable wrist strap.
If you want an even slimmer wallet option than the usual fare, Vofolen's hard shell case is your best bet. It has a flexible rubber inner layer, hard plastic outer shell, and a sliding back slot that can fit up to two cards — perfect for your ID, a credit, and even a little cash if you don't mind a tighter fit.

There's no shortage of great options to protect your Galaxy S7. We particularly like the Spigen Liquid Crystal because it manages to strike the ideal balance between affordability and protection. The clear case allows you to show off your Galaxy S7 in all its glory, but you also get raised edges at the front that protect the screen in the event of a fall. Best of all, the slim design doesn't add any considerable heft to the Galaxy S7.
If you're looking for the ultimate protection for your phone, look no further than the OtterBox Symmetry. The case will add a significant amount of bulk to your device, but the dual-material design ensures your phone stays protected for years to come.
