Best Samsung Galaxy S7 cases


Samsung introduced its new flagship for the year not too long ago: the Galaxy S7. It’s no secret that everyone and their uncle wants one. In fact, units are flying off the shelf, and it’s quite possible that Samsung could beat all previous sales records. That aside, there’s one fact we can all agree on: the Galaxy S7 is expensive. Many will buy carrier insurance in order to avoid any risk if something were to happen to their device; however, the best insurance you can get for your smartphone is actually a case.

There are a lot of benefits to having a case. The first being that it could take weeks to get your smartphone back through an insurance company. If you’ve got a case on your smartphone, it’ll generally protect you against any sort of cracks or damages, saving you from going through that painstaking insurance process. There are a lot of different cases to choose from, but worry not! We here at Talk Android are going to show you some of the best ones out there!

Otterbox Defender


Maybe you’re someone who works in a factory, garage, or even the outdoors putting in poles for someone like Detroit Edison. All of those are rather rough jobs and put your smartphone at higher risk for getting crushed or damaged. That said, the Otterbox Defender offers some great 4-layer all around protection to save your Galaxy S7 from any sort of damage.

The quad-layer protection works as some great insurance for your smartphone. One thing’s for sure: the Galaxy S7 won’t be breaking anytime soon in this.

  • Colors:
    • Shell: Black, White, Whetstone Blue, Citron Green, Sand, Gunmetal Grey, Blaze Orange
    • Slipcover: Gunmetal Grey, Merlot Purple, Black, Slate Grey, Tempest Blue, Flame Red
  • Pricing: $45-$54

Otterbox Commuter


The Otterbox Defender is a little chunky, so if you don’t mind dropping down to two-layers of protection for the sake of having a less chunky case, the Otterbox Commuter might be right up your alley.

The two layers of protection are a rubber insert and outer polycarbonate shell, designed for absorbing shock and all of the impact. It’s truly nowhere near as chunky, and as a result, it fits in your pocket easily.

  • Colors: Black, Glacier, Whetstone Way, Flame Way, Bahama Way, Mauve Way, Bubblegum Way
  • Pricing: $31-$35

Speck CandyShell Grip


The Speck CandyShell Grip is even slimmer than the Otterbox Commuter, but still offers some great impact protection. Not only that, but it features raised bezels so that the display never actually hits the ground. With a no-slip grip and shock absorbing design, you’ll never have to worry about your Galaxy S7 again.

  • Colors: White/Black, Sandy Grey/Aloe Green, Dolphin Grey/Lilac Purple, Black/Slate Grey
  • Pricing: $35

Speck CandyShell Clear


The Speck CandyShell Clear offers the same protection as the Grip. You still have the great impact protection, as well as those raised bezels to keep the screen from hitting the ground. It even has plenty of shock protection.

The CandyShell Clear is for those that don’t want to cover up the style of their device. There’s even a two-layer clear material to make sure there isn’t any yellowing, keeping your device looking fresh and clean, while still sporting that great protection Speck offers.

  • Colors: Clear, Onyx Black
  • Pricing: $28-$40
