    I originally bought this for my Samsung S7 Edge. Since you can't buy a good screen protector for the edge, this seemed like a good option. Despite drops for both me and my son, both of our OtterBoxes have kept our phones safe! Phone is no longer slippery and the case is rubbery with some flexibility so feels good in your hand. One downside... There seems to be a gap on the back, like an air pocket that stops it from sitting flush with the back of my phone. Since my son (college student) tends to keep his phone in his pocket, it has caused it to pull away a bit around the space for the camera, and he'd only had it for 6 months. This does not seem to interfere with anything, but thought it was worth mentioning. Needless to say, we bought back up cases before they don't sell them for our phones. We have them instead of insurance and they more than do their job. I have seen reviews regarding difficulty with screen sensitivity because of the cover, but neither my son or I notice that! Once you use it, you adjust and it is fine! Plan on having this phone for years and feel this case with keep it safe!

    If you pay retail for an unlocked, no carrier bloatware phone and you tend to drop things, you definitely want to protect your investment. The Otterbox Defender not perfect, but it is very good choice. Having had a Defender on my S5 for several years, it was my first choice to protect my S7 Edge. The Defender affords protection for the phone body as well as the screen (no separate screen protector needed), and it fits very well. Importantly, it is designed to nicely accommodate the curved screen on the S7 Edge.. As to performance, I have already dropped the phone several times on hard surfaces, and it has worked like a charm. I saw someone posted that you have to remove the phone from the clip to access the charging port; however, nearly all of my charging is done in the clip. No access issue at all. On the downside: It is bulky when in the carrying case, but the trade off is the level of protection. Though the belt clip on the case appears to be just like the one on my S5 case, I find that this one tends to come loose more when bumped, which has caused some of my phone drops. On one of these occasions, the phone took a double hit; however, to the case's credit, the phone apparently was not hurt. Lastly, accessing buttons on the edge of the Edge screen is a bit of a challenge on occasion. Bottom line: In spite of the downside items, I would buy the Defender again, and I would surely recommend it to a friend. Were it possible to do so, I would have rated it a 4.5.

    Great case with built-in screen protector. It looks and feels of very high quality. It form fits my phone perfectly. Alignment is spot-on with all buttons, and openings (speaker/microphone/camera), and the screen protector fits flush over the screen. The two rubber covers over the microUSB and headphone inputs fit nicely as well. The case has good padding on the corners. They are raised up, so if the phone is laid flat screen down, it does not touch the surface. If I did not know there was a screen protector, I could not tell the difference. It feels silky smooth and responsive. Perhaps the only place you'll notice a "smidge" of a difference, is right at the top when doing a swipe-down to get at notifications. A slightly firmer swipe works. I can live with that knowing my phone is protected. Don't bother with the included installation instructions. Go to youtube and watch a video on how to. It's not difficult.

    Great protection, mediocre functionality.

    First and foremost, this product is meant to protect your phone. And it does, very well! But, the OtterBox case is also meant to allow you to use your phone's full functionality without impeding your ability to take advantage of the many great features your phone offers. Here is where this product does not live up to expectations. First, the screen on the phone is excellent, but the imperfections in the case's clear plastic coating make it appear as if the screen is not perfect. Also, the screen touch is not very responsive when used with this case. Perhaps this is due to the curved Edge, and the inability to make this form-fitting enough to have perfect touch response as you near the edge of the phone. It is often frustrating, as when you press letters on either end of the keyboard they are not recognized and you find yourself having to go back and fix words. Similar inadequacies exist when using the screen to play games navigate apps or surf the web.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Hi Jordan!

      We sincerely apologize that you're having trouble accessing the full functionality of your phone with the Defender case! Usually the protector sits flush on top of the phone, and it sounds as if there is an unusually large gap between your screen protector and the screen. But never fear - OtterBox is here! Just call our heroic Otters at 1-855-688-7269, and they'll save the day with a warranty claim! We’ll send you a new case faster than a speeding bullet!

      Best,

    Still the best case.

    I have several cases for my S7 Edge I get cases instead of insurance. I was hesitant to buy an Otterbox Defender only because of other reviews indicating that the case was poorly made, or reduced screen sensitivity. But I hage had defenders for many years on many phones and had to give it a try. It didn't hurt that it caught my attention on a day that they were half off (I wasn't even looking for a case that day). My verdict? Very g-d case offering traditional defender protection.I have dropped my phone a few times into concrete, getting out of my truck, and there isn't even a scuff in the case. Does it lessen touchscreen sensitivity? Yes. A little. But not so much that it interferes with my use of the phone at all. I can still charge wirekessly. I can hear and be heard just as before. I don't use the belt holster but it is made to typical Otterbox high standards Really, I cn't complain about the case. It is a good buy for those who have extra reason to protect their phones.

    This is just the case I wanted. This is my 3rd smartphone (if you count the recalled Samsung Note 7) and my 2nd Otterbox Defender case (Defender was not available at the time I purchased the Note 7. However, the military grade-drop SPECK was a very good case!) It is definitely rugged, and has taken more than it's share of concrete hits in & out of the holster. And the headphone & charge port plug covers fit snug! Notes: It is a bit tough to get the phone out of the holster & making the clip a stand. That said, I SWEAR there is a correct way (power button on the same side as the 2 openings) vs incorrect (volume buttons on the same side as the 2 openings) to put the phone in the holster to make it easier to remove. Like all Defenders the extra screen protector, sometimes makes it difficult to swipe the Edge feature, and to when pressing the keyboard. CONS: 1. You have to remove the phone from the holster to use the rear camera. 2. Wish it had covers for the microphone & speaker ports.

    The BEST protective clip-on case for Galaxy S7Edge

    The case is easy to put on, take off, it protects the screen, has a good grip and feels solid. I can use a wireless charger with this case and because rubber backing is flexible, I can use a magnet on the inside of the case to securely attach my phone to my car's dashboard (which has a magnetic phone holder in a vent). I really like my S7 Edge, I take it out to use GalaxyVR quite often and it's very convenient. I honestly tried 4 different cases, none were as good as this one. I am keeping this one because I can sense that if I drop my phone it will be protected, the others were flimsy, too slippery and inconvenient (I bought cases that cost between $15 and $30, all a waste). My advice - forget about how much this costs, just get it and enjoy your phone for 2 years.

    The Best

    My wife and I recently upgraded to the S7 Edge. We upgraded from the S3. Four years ago when we purchased our S3's, we immediately placed them in an Otterbox Defender. When we traded our S3's in for the S7 Edge the Best Buy worker said "My gosh these phones look brand new". Oh by the way Best Buy gave us a total of $900.00 in gift cards for the trade in's and promo....GREAT DEAL!!!! Anyway I didn't even think an Otterbox existed for the Edge but of course with Otterbox being the top notch company they are I was quickly corrected. We purchased our Edge's along with the Otterbox Defender and could not be happier. The case is a must have for the S7 Edge and it functions perfectly. I would love to meet the designers of these cases because the design and functionality is nothing short of brilliant. God willing, I look forward to trading my S7 Edge in in about 4 years from now and have the Best Buy Associate say "My gosh this phone looks brand new.
