    Nice case with horrible buttons

    This is from my review I wrote on XDA Developers: Otterbox Symmetry: 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. You can read more here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/s7-edge/accessories/3-7-case-reviews-spigen-incipio-tech-21-t3331028

    Superior protection!This is the third case I've had for my galaxy s7 edge.The others didn't even come close.As a matter of fact I'd say this is my favorite otterbox case I have ever owned for any device and I've had many. The case itself consists of the usual otterbox defender hard inner shell with a rubber slipcover.It was easy to put on.The phone did not wiggle one bit when I placed it in the shell.The rubber cover has some nice ridges on the sides and the back.I am a woman with small hands and this makes it so much easier and more comfortable to hold.The case is not bulky and maintains the slim,sleek feel of the galaxy s7 edge.The buttons still function just as you would expect.Perfect response.The charge port and headphone jack both have individual flaps that cover them when not in use.They are easy to access and don't cause any issues during use. The built-in screen protector on this case is not the thin,flimsy screen protector I am accustomed to on otterbox cases.Its much more firm and when you use the phone you'd never know it was there aside from some slight lack of response on occasion on the edges of the screen when typing.Not a big enough deal that I would ever have doubts about using it.This is the first time I have not wanted to rip the screen protector out of a case.I truly enjoy it. I would absolutely recommend this case.Its great!

    Don't use with screen protector

    I was looking for a simple case to use with my new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This case looked good and I liked the blue color to go with the blue phone. My biggest issue was getting the case on without damaging the screen protector. Because it is the Edge version, the screen protector wraps onto the edge portion of the screen. The case was tight fitting which would normally be a plus however with this design, it caused the edge of the screen protector to start lifting off the glass. I am using the Zagg screen protector which was installed by the Best Buy sales rep. The screen protector was properly installed and I waited 24 hours before attempting to put the phone in the case. After some frustration trying to get the case on without it lifting the screen protector, I finally decided it just wasn't the case for me. Another factor was the Gear VR that we got with the phone. Since you have to take the phone out of the case in order to use the Gear VR, I was sure I would continue to damage the screen protector each time I put the phone back into the case. Overall, I think the case is a solid product, just not the right case to use with a screen protector installed.

    Just Good. Not Perfect

    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.

    Overall, a very good producd. I just wish there was an Otterbox Defender for the Edge 7. I had that one for my last phone. At the time I got it, I couldn't understand what the big deal with an Otterbox. Then I dropped the phone running iinto my office on a slushy, miserable day. I didn't notice until a few minutes later, I backtracked and found it. It was obvious from the slush that a car had driven over the phone, which was face up without the screen cover that I seldom used at work. I figured I was going to need a new phone, but all I found was that there were a couple of scratches on the Otterbox screen protector. I never even did anything about that, but used the case for about another 18 months when I replaced the phone. I just couldn't believe the protection I got. While I'm not really crazy about needing a case because of the bulkiness and looks, I have to say that I'm definitely sold on the Otterbox and plan to continue to get them.

    Functional Case but Huge Letdown from Otterbox

    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.

    Only used for a couple days

    Getting a new phone is always fun because you get the latest tech but when getting a new phone you want to protect it from damage. I got this case in the beginning because I didn't want the defender case because it was way to bulky when I had the note 3. So I got a screen protector and this case to protect the screen and the entire phone. Let me tell you after putting in the screen protector and even waiting a couple days to put on the case, the case still lifted up on the sides and made air bubbles. It made the appearance of the phone used and abused. So I took off the protector, returned the case, and ended up buying the defender case because it's a defender and it is not as bulky as when I had it in my note 3. I would recommend if you don't want a screen protector and just want a good protective layer around the phone.

    Good quality, typical overpriced otterbox though

    This is a very well made case. Feels good and has a nice low profile compared to the bulkier otterbox cases. Great for those of us that like to keep our phones in our pocket but do want a little protection. This case is way overpriced for what it is though. I purchased this case when I got my galaxy s7 edge as it was the only one in the store I liked. I would recommend this product if the price point was a little lower. I wound up ordering another cover through the bestbuy website and took this one back when I received it. The case that replaced this one was half the price, just as good build quality, and has a built in kickstand. Nice product otterbox but to me this one isn't worth the price of admission. Four stars for quality, can't give it five because of the price.
