Provides excellent protection on back and side protection. Provides flat surface on back of phone so camera screen won't get scratch when placed down. Front part of case provides a small lift so screen is not touching when placed faced down.

This is a great case for the Galaxy S 7 edge. It also keeps the phone from slipping out of your hand and secures the screen.

Just Good. Not Perfect
Posted by: Ikeman624 from: on
I've been a fan of Otterbox cases, and mostly used them on all the phones I've owned; now my GS7 edge was no exception. Having said that, and in regards to this specific case, I'm more than satisfied on the way Otterbox slimmed their bulky yet effective cases down on their Symmetry line, without sacrificing overall protection to the phone itself. They managed for the case not to look bulky and sturdy once on the phone. Although I will have to say the buttons are hard to press on both side panels of the phone, but no major pain involved once you get used to the amount of pressure you need to press them. Otterbox could've done it better in this regards. For this reason, and this reason only, I give it a GOOD review instead of PERFECT.

Nice case with horrible buttons
Posted by: Pilz from: on
This is from my review I wrote on XDA Developers:
I've never owned an Otterbox before because I couldn't get over their clunky design that hindered the user experience. The Symmetry series is their thinnest least intrusive case from my understanding. Otterbox used a 2 material molded design which allowed the case to be 1 piece for ease of use. This design leads to the case having a different structure than your conventional hybrid which is usually a TPU/silicon bumper with a polycarbonate/acrylic back. Here the case has a hard plastic (not sure what type) back half with a high density silicon/TPU front half and core. The pictures below will show a better representation of what I'm referring to. Like many heavy duty cases this one doesn't provide a lot of grip for some absurd reason. Now, make no mistake this case is still quite large and clunky, but in a more mild mannered way than its bigger sibling the Commuter (or for some other phones the Defender). There is a subtle texture on the back that all Otterbox cases seem to feature, but as I mentioned don't expect a lot of grip from it. I enjoy the feel of this case, even its large size aside from a big downfall that I will talk about below.
Ports: The micro USB port has no issues fitting cables from any of these manufacturers: Tronsmart, Choetech, Samsung, Nvidia, Motorola, Aukey, and Anker. If you have large & studio style headphones with a massive aux cable you won't be happy with the normal sized cutout for headphones, but it works fine with my Bose QC 20's, Freestyles, OE's, Samsung headphones, and some others I've tried. All microphone cutouts are also present. Since Otterbox is the so called "king" of rugged cases they have huge cutouts to match their reputation. I can see more accessories potentially working with this case due to the large openings which I appreciate. There is a little loss of rigidity on the bottom due to the number and size of the cutouts, but it shouldn't hinder the protection it provides.
Volume/Power buttons: I still don't know why manufacturers especially big names like Otterbox can't make tactile feeling buttons! A lot of companies like Speck (their Candyshell), or even UAG seemed to have mastered this area despite not being as well known. I can't make excuses for the buttons on this case; they are so hard to press the whole side of the case physically moves a large amount just to press any of them. I was really looking forward to using this case when I go hiking due to its rugged nature in a slimmer profile, but not with buttons that need the Hulk to move. This one area is what will make or break a case, and it certainly ruined the case for me. I ended up returning it to BestBuy because I couldn't deal with this kind of disregard on a $45 case.
Overall: 7/10 i truly enjoyed every part of this case, but the most important part of it was a letdown: the buttons. Otterbox knows how to make an excellent case, yet they don:t know what a tactile feeling button is, or how to even ensure they function easily. If you can get over that big drawback I see no reason not to buy this case because it was set to be one of my favorites alongside the Tech 21.
I would add more pictures but BestBuy limits the uploads to 2 images.

Functional Case but Huge Letdown from Otterbox
Posted by: yakturk43 from: on
The case is decent, but a bit of a let down from the previous Otterbox cases. This one does not offer a screen protector like most Otterbox cases, and although it does protect the frame of the phone, similar cases can be bought for much cheaper, both at Best Buy and other places. I expected a lot more from this case when I ordered it, was very disappointed to see it was a regular candy shell. Also messed up an Invisibleshield Screen Protector I bought for the phone after realizing the case didn't come with a screen protector built in. The case ended up pushing the sides of the screen protector up and I can't get them to stick now. Also, the power and volume buttons are extremely tight with this case compared to other Otterbox cases.

Did not protect
Posted by: Colleen from: on
This Otterbox is pretty and slim but did not provide my phone the protection it needed. I dropped my phone about 3 feet and the screen made 1 long crack. Later my phone slip off my lap and fell maybe 6 inches and the screen shattered. Maybe the 7s edge has a very delicate screen because of the curved edges, but either way this case did not provide my phone the protection it needed.

Protection without compromising style
Posted by: BBUY from: on
Otter Box phone cases have a reputation for being durable yet bulky. This case breaks that perception and is quite stylish. It fits the S7 Edge perfectly and does add some width to it. However it does not compromise the style of the phone. It contours to the S7 Edges shape and provides superior protection. It's simple and does the job.

Very nice cell phone case
Posted by: FlickityFlack from: hurlburt field, fl on
The case does the job. It keeps my phone safe from scratches. Kind of expensive for what it is though.

Works good on the samsung galaxy edge however the back of the otterbox is slick so you have to be careful your hands are lotioned or wet because you will drop your phone.
