The Samsung Galaxy S7 is so beautiful it is a real shame to have to cover it up. But the device is also said to be too fragile to be left to its own, er, device.
Despite its IP68 rating – which certifies the smartphone’s resistance to dust and water – some parts like the screen and back panel are still at risk of getting broken. It’s also said to be incredibly hard to fix it, due to the components being tightly sealed together to ensure total waterproofing.
It’s guaranteed to cost you a lot of money if you have to take your Galaxy S7 Edge into a shop to repair its damaged screen, so you should probably consider investing in a good quality rugged case to avoid ever breaking your phone – even if you drop it from the top of the stairs, you need the mobile phone accessories to ensure you can not only fashion your phone to yuor needs but also protect and to enhance functionality.
But a phone case can serve many purposes – from looks to keeping your credit cards safe. Which is why we’ve rounded up 7 of the best Samsung Galaxy S7 cases on the market for a wide range of uses.
