Best rugged cases for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
Priced at around $700 - $800 (depending on where you buy it from), the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
is certainly not a phone that you'd want to break anytime soon, or ever. The fact that the S7 edge is quite slippery definitely adds to the risk of dropping it, so buying a protective case is a good idea if you don't want to worry about the handset's well-being.
The best way to protect your Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
is, obviously, with a rugged case (or armor case, as they're often called). If you're planning to buy such a case, do check out our list below, as it includes what we believe to be the best Galaxy S7
edge rugged cases currently on the market. Mind you, the cases are listed in alphabetical order. Enjoy!
Griffin Survivor Journey case for Galaxy S7 edge
This Survivor Journey case from Griffin is built to withstand damage whenever you drop your Galaxy S7 edge from up to 6.6 feet (2 meters), even on concrete. It's not as bulky as other cases in its category, though the curved edges of the phone's screen remain a bit exposed. Of course, you could add a screen protector
yourself, but you'd be paying extra.
Otterbox Defender case for Galaxy S7 edge
The Defender is the toughest Galaxy S7 edge case made by Otterbox, benefiting from a quad-layer design that will do a great job at protecting your handset from the harshest impacts. The case passed through 24 different Otterbox tests, and comes with a belt clip that doubles as a stand. Moreover, there's a built-in screen protector (which should obviously keep your display scratch- and crack-free).
Spigen Tough Armor case for Galaxy S7 edge
The Spigen Tough Armor for the S7 edge looks pretty cool, and meets military drop test standards MIL-STD 810G 516.6, meaning it's guaranteed to withstand drops from 4 feet (1.2 meters). The case offers seamless access to the phone's ports, and has a built-in kickstand. It can be bought in three color variants: black, champagne gold, and gunmetal.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series case for Galaxy S7 edge
The Unicorn Beetle Pro case from Supcase has a somewhat elegant appearance (for a rugged case, that is), and offers its own swiveling belt clip holster - a nice bonus besides the actual protection that the case provides. This unicorn beetle (that's a real insect, by the way) comes in a variety of sporty, outdoorsy colors, and you'll probably find at least one to suit your style.
Urban Armor Gear case for Galaxy S7 edge
And here we have another case that meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6). Made by Urban Armor Gear, the accessory has a pleasant rugged design, and features a raised, rubberized area on the front in order to safeguard the display of the S7 edge (however, the case does not come with a proper screen protector).
Vena vArmor case for Galaxy S7 edge
Designed in the US and made in Korea, the Vena vArmor case for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is the cheapest accessory on our list. But it will still manage to protect your handset well, thanks to a sturdy dual-layer construction. The case offers a textured back for enhanced grip, and doesn't obstruct the ports of the S7 edge.
