Abacus 24-7 Wallet Case for Galaxy S7 edge




Pros

  • Affordable
  • Various colors to choose from

Cons

  • Kickstand mode doesn't offer multiple viewing angles
  • Materials are a bit on the cheap side

Comprised of a polycarbonate inner shell and a wallet made out of synthetic leather, this Abacus 24-7 case features a pretty basic kickstand mode - it won't let you adjust the viewing angle, but at least it's there. The wallet comes with a few card slots and a hidden pocket for cash.

Obliq Naked Shield Case for Galaxy S7 edge




Pros

  • Metal kickstand
  • See-through, elegant design

Cons

  • Kickstand mode doesn't offer multiple viewing angles

Designed in the US and manufactured in South Korea, the Obliq Naked Shield case offers a see-through rear shell complete with a magnetic metal kickstand (no multiple viewing angles, sorry). The case also includes a TPU bumper for protection against hard impacts, and, overall, it's pretty elegant.

Shieldon Genuine Leather Wallet Case




Pros

  • Genuine leather
  • Elegant design
  • Multi-angle stand

Cons

  • Not cheap

This Shieldon Wallet Case - made out of genuine cowhide leather - can be easily transformed into an adjustable horizontal stand for your viewing pleasure. That aside, it's got inner pockets for cards and cash, and will keep your Galaxy S7 edge protected in a stylish manner.

Spigen Tough Armor case for Galaxy S7 edge 




Pros

  • Tough case (MIL-STD 810G 516.6 certified)
  • Elegant design

Cons

  • Kickstand mode doesn't offer multiple viewing angles

The Spigen-made Tough Armor case for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge looks cool, and meets military standards MIL-STD 810G 516.6, thus being guaranteed to survive drops from up to 4 feet (1.2 meters). The case features a small but tough polycarbonate stand - unfortunately, this doesn't provide multiple viewing angles. You can buy the Spigen Tough Armor case in a combination of colors that complement the Galaxy S7 edge: blue coral, champagne gold, gunmetal, and black.

Vena vCommute Case for Galaxy S7 edge




Pros

  • Multi-angle stand
  • Interesting design

Cons

  • It may be hard to get the phone out of the case

The Vena vCommute is presented as a "smart case" for the Galaxy S7 edge. That's because its leather-like rear has two functions: it hides your cards, and also acts as a multi-angle magnetic-lock stand. You're also getting reliable protection against drops and bumps, thanks to a shock-absorbent TPU interior.

Zizo Bolt Cover Case for Galaxy S7 edge




Pros

  • Tough case (MIL-STD 810G 516.6 certified)
  • A dozen colors to choose from

Cons

  • Not among the prettiest cases out there
  • Bulky

With its dual-layered rugged construction, the Zizo Bolt Cover is the bulkiest case on our list, but it's also one of the toughest, being MIL-STD 810G 516.6 certified. The case's kickstand is very sturdy, but it doesn't really allow you to change viewing angles. Well, at least you're getting a holster clip, belt clip, and a lanyard with this case.

http://goo.gl/m9Oigz This is the best one I've found. The kickstand is sturdy, and works in either portrait or landscape. Unfortunately, to be certified for work, I need the charging and headphone ports covered, so I had to settle for this one:http://goo.gl/vL94rS Really, the choices were not great. This one has a really flimsy kickstand that collapses if you move the phone.

The Spigen SlimArmor case offers two viewing angles, you just rotate the phone 180 degrees to get a shallow or steep angle. Steep if the power button is on top, shallow if it's on the bottom.

I had one for my Note 7 - didn't like it. The kickstand is really flimsy plastic.

Why make an article about cases for a phone that's almost a year old. They should've done this in first couple of months and if they did just skipped this one
