Best leather cases for Samsung Galaxy S7

6

If you need a protective case for your Samsung Galaxy S7, but you want something with a little more class and style than a plastic-made accessory, you may want to consider getting a leather case.

Obviously, leather cases should not be among your top choices if you're looking for extreme protection, but they can still be pretty good at keeping your S7 safe from scratches and bumps. All the case presented below, except for one, offer easy access to the cameras and the ports of the Galaxy S7, and we think you can find at least a few models that you'll like. In no particular order:

Sena Heritage Wallet Book for Galaxy S7


Buy from Sena ($69.95)


Pros

  • Classic look and feel
  • Can be used as a stand
  • Multiple internal slots for cards or cash 

Cons

  • A bit pricey

This 15mm-thick "wallet book" case from Sena is handcrafted from tumbled leather that should age beautifully. It's got a nice, classy design, with a well integrated plastic frame to protect the edges of the S7, offering the advantage of having a landscape mode that's easy to set-up - basically, you can use this as a stand. Internal currency pockets and card slots are also included. The case is available in cognac, or black.

OtterBox Strada Series Leather Case for Galaxy S7


Buy from OtterBox ($49.95)


Pros

  • The toughest S7 leather case around
  • Internal slot for cards and cash

Cons

  • Rather bulky

OtterBox usually makes bulky, rugged cases, so you may be surprised to find that it's also selling leather cases. This particular OtterBox Strada Series leather case for the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a folio case that's "engineered to survive drops." Made out of premium leather plus a polycarbonate shell and a metal latch, the case hides a vertical slot for your cards or cash. 

Lucrin Pull-up Strap Case for Galaxy S7


Buy from Lucrin (starting at $43)


Pros

  • An insane range of customization options
  • Slim and elegant design
  • Pull-up strap lets you easily take the phone out

Cons

  • Not the best choice if you need protection against drops
  • No quick access to the phone's bottom and cameras
  • Can cost up to around $100

Swiss company Lucrin believes that you need this leather case/pouch in your Galaxy S7's life. That's because each case is made by hand, and you can design your own by choosing the leather type and color (from tens of combinations available, some at extra cost), the thread color, and even a custom engraving (for $30). The case doesn't really cover the top of the S7, so you may want to be careful not to drop the pair when getting it out of your pocket.

Caseology Leather Bound Bumper Cover for Galaxy S7


Buy from Amazon ($16.99)

Pros

  • Very affordable 
  • Available in 5 distinct color versions

Cons

  • The case's buttons may not be that users friendly

This Caseology bumper case is made out of leather that's fused to a shock-absorbent TPU chassis for increased protection against drops. The case provides easy access to the bottom ports of the Galaxy S7, and comes in a variety of colors, including green, navy, cherry, brown, and pink. Right now, the Caseology Leather Bound Bumper Cover costs just $16.99 (discounted from the original price of $39.99), so it's clearly the most affordable option on our list.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Leather Cover

Pros

  • Original Samsung product
  • Design that perfectly fits the S7

Cons

  • Not yet available

Samsung has its own Leather Case for the Galaxy S7, though this can't be bought yet, and it looks like it will be available only in black. Nevertheless, the case will perfectly suit your Galaxy S7, and the fact that it wraps around the edges of the device should keep it safe from most dangers. If we had to guess, we'd say that this will be on the expensive side.
