So you're looking for a phone case for your Samsung Galaxy S7, and you come across Spigen's Crystal Shell case. Sure, it's unique from some of the other Spigen cases with its transparency, and its light frame doesn't make your phone a bulky mess — but is it worth your money?

We break down the style, features, and design of the Crystal Shell case to see if it's worth picking up to protect your Galaxy S7.


Spigen Crystal Shell case for Galaxy S7

The first thing you'll notice about this case is its crystal-clear transparency.

From top to bottom, there aren't any colored parts or dark bits muddling up the look of this case. Because of this, it's one of the only Spigen case that'll look 'invisible' with your phone (so if you're not into big bulky cases, you may want to check this model out.) However, if you're nervous about the Crystal Shell's lack of rubber bumper or additional protection, there are other Spigen cases that are more heavy-duty that could ease your anxiety.

In your hand, the case feels smooth and soft. Except for the ribbed corners, it could be mistaken for holding the bare phone with your eyes shut. Form-fitted with a screen-protecting raised bezel, and air cushion technology in the corners, the Crystal Shell keeps your S7 looking sleek and utterly stylish while offering good protection..

Like most Spigen cases, the Crystal Shell is drop tested military grade, which means Spigen's protective cases have been tested by a third-party lab to be certified in Military-Grade protection. Even though the case may not have an additional rubberized bumper like some of the other brand's cases, it's just as sturdy and strong. The bumpers on the phone's corners also make dropping your phone a lot less excruciating, as they'll absorb some of the shock.

The most striking part of the Crystal Shell's design is its crystal-clear back. Aside from that, it's a pretty standard case — the ports at the bottom are easily accessible, the volume buttons and lock buttons are quick to use, and the camera isn't covered up or obscured by the case at all.

It's important to note that clear cases are prone to discoloration or yellowing, so be sure to keep an eye out for that as you use the case.

The Bottom Line

Though it doesn't look like much, Spigen's Crystal Shell case for the Galaxy S7 is a durable, reliable, and stylish accessory for your phone. Any details about the case we missed? Let us know in the comments below!
