Samsung’s “Edge” line of phones has included the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+. These phones have a curved display, and have used that extra screen area to provide various added features. The latest addition to this part of the Galaxy family of devices is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The S7 Edge is a bit larger than the regular S7, and has the added benefit of quick access to content, including third-party apps and news updates.
The unique shape of the Edge phones from Samsung can make them a little tricky to protect. Thankfully, there are several companies out there making protective phone cases that keep these uniquely-shaped phones protected against drops, bumps, scratches, and other hazards of daily use. If you’re in the market for a phone case for the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, read on to find the case that’s right for your needs, and your unique style. Please be advised that we’ll be adding more recommendations to this post in the coming weeks, and adding even more details the closer we get to launch day.
