    Hark! The plastic angel sings!

    I recently had the life-altering pleasure of purchasing the Tech21 Evo Frame Case for Samsung Galaxy Edge S7, and, to put it mildly, it has been life-altering. Allow me to make a comparison. You saunter over to your local MerceLexIfini dealership and decide to acquire the latest of their uber-costly luxury sedans. You drive it home. You show your friends. You drive it to work for a day or two. But then... you realize something. It might get scratched! It might get dented! Pop quiz: What can you do? One thing and one thing alone. You park that luxury vehicle safely near the back of the lot, diagonally across two spaces because that is scientifically proved to safeguard any car, and then run do not walk into the store to do the only sensible thing possible. You purchase a full-sized, form-fitting, rubberized plastic sarcophagus for your new vehicle, to keep it out of harm's way. Obviously. Anyone who doesn't do so is playing with fire. And that is exactly what this case is for, assuming the car in this analogy is your new phone, and the sarcophagus is this case. "You" still represents "you." You bought an expensive phone, yet it's light as a feather. It slips in and out of your pocket or purse with dangerous ease. It slides across your countertop or desk or workbench or foosball table with the grace of Brian Boitano gliding across ice. Do not kid yourself. Every single second is a risk. You know, in your heart, the truth. You know your phone is only a heartbeat from destruction at any moment. What will save it? What will protect your precious cargo? You owe it to civilization to enshrine your phone in this plastic angel and let it sing! Hark! Hear it call out to you in safety and security and with an aesthetic that is price-appropriate. Doesn't your luxurious, top of the line phone - something you may be paying a large sum for monthly over the next several years - deserve the kind of swaddle cloth that you can get for a couple of Andrew Jacksons? Yep. I nodded with you. I know. And the color. It's called Smokie. What better way to relive the 1977 classic Burt Reynolds film than to simply look into the awesome grayness of this case. Go on, you Bandit! If you have already bought this case, I raise mine to you in solidarity! If you haven't, I simply shake my head, wondering what you're waiting for. Every moment is one where your phone, like a certain one ring, might forsake you, slide off the couch, and dash itself on your new formica floor. Don't be a statistic. Get this case. For America.

    Really Nice Case

    I had originally bought one of those really cool looking Samsung Galaxy s7 edge S-View covers with the see through window where you can interact with the screen. WELL, turns out the case scratches the screen. I don't usually use anything covering my screen at all and have never had any scratches. They want you to interact with the S-View screen while the flap is closed, but if any debris gets in between the screen the screen, it literally etches the screen. So I went to Best Buy and the guy took me to this case. He was part of the Samsung in-Store area also. Took me to this one and said this one is the best they have. This is definitely true. The phone still charges wirelessly with it on, it is snug, it feels great when you hold it, and it doesn't unnecessary cover the edges. It still has that rubber part on the edges and corners though so if you drop it, I think it should be ok. I don't even have any screen protector on now and still NO more scratches. So take that Samsung for saying it was me! Buy this case instead!

    Protect your phone without compromising style

    I got this case for the Galaxy S7 Edge due to the fact that the phone has glass on the front and back of the device. I'm not one to normally drop by device, but I like to protect my investment and suggest that others do as well. With this case, you are getting a decent amount of protection for your Galaxy S7 Edge without compromising on style. The smoky/black allows you to see through it and see the phone itself. There's a decent amount of lip on the front to keep the screen from touching the surface when laying it down flat and it has enough the keep the camera hump from touching as well. One complaint would be that it's not as grippy as I wish it was. Setting the phone on my leg with jeans on with this case will cause it to slip and almost fall. Not something that I do every day but something that you should be aware of.

    This is aN excellent case to protect your phone. Have used this case for over a year and have dropped my phone a lot of times and nothing has ever happened to it. I have even dropped the phone (accidentally) face down on concrete a coupke of times and the small bump outs on the top and bottom of the front of the case have protected the screen each time. Obviously a little luck has been involved as a rock or protrusion could get to your screen. The case is smooth so it goes easily in and out of my pocket. My wife has a case from another well known case maker which is "rubbery" and does not really slide on a smooth surface but she keeps her phone in her purse so is ok with that. Her case adds a noticeable amount of weight to her phone when compared to this Tech21 case though. Great case if you want fantastic protection while maintaining the functionality to easily slide your phone in and out of your pocket.

    I am very happy with this phone. All in all, I think that Samsung is the best phone on the market. The phone has many user-friendly features that provide an excellent phone experience, such as the screen size, design/sturdiness, fast charging battery, camera. Some nice enhancements from the Note 4 phone on texting (go through smoothly) and emails (easy to manage/view).. Thank you, Samsung! I'm not being asked to review my experience @ Best Buy, but I d like to add how pleased I am with the customer service I got there for my phone plan (@86 St & Lex Ave NYC.) Also the Samsung tech support on the premises are so helpful, knowledgeable, and patient with their customers Alex was exceptional.

    Good protection, but too slick.

    I've used tech 21 cases ever since my galaxy s4, and they've always been great, offering wonderful drop protection while including superior grip thanks to their rubbery material. This case seems to have about equal drop protection, but the case feels like plastic. I think the phone is more slick with the case on than it is without a case and the case does not greatly improve on the thin and hard to hold sides of the phone. With this case on, the phone will slide on even slightly tilted surfaces. I like my $15 insignia case much more simpy because it offers much better grip, although it's drop protection is probably not as good.

    I got this case when I purchased my ohone. I wanted something slim and not bulky but still sturdy. It's like a soft plastic or hard rubber. It's a little flexible. The edges are raised a bit near the screen to keep the screen from touching directly on a surface. The inside is sort of cool, on the top and bottom corners there's this rubbery like material which looks like it's suppose to help absorb the shock from impacts. Headphones, charger, all work well with the case on. All the buttons are still responsive also. It's kind of a Smokey black and you can see through it slightly on my titanium colored phone. Is but it again if I had to do it over again.

    I am really pleased with this case for my S7 Edge phone. It does a good job of protecting the phone from drops. There is not much protection from a face down drop, but given the edge design of the phone it is hard to protect against that without getting in the way of the phone. This case does a good job of protecting without adding too much additional bulk to the phone. My major complaint about the case, and the reason I only gave it 4 stars, is that the outside of the case does not have any grip to it. The edges and the back of it are smooth, making it easier to slip out of your hands.

    I've had a Tech 21 case before and used to use the Otterbox Defender cases prior to that. However, the Otterbox cases became too bulky. I was concerned about the much slimmer Tech 21 case providing adequate protection, but having accidentally dropped a phone with a Tech 21 case on it and having no negative consequence, it made me a believer in the Tech 21 case and its slimmer design. The Otterbox may be great if you're in extreme conditions, but for most users such as me, the Tech 21 case is just great for daily use.

    This is a great phone case. I love the material that it is made of. It's not too hard like if I dropped it it would Crack but it's not too soft and rubbery. It is very light and thin. It doesnt add alot of mass to the phone which i love. My only issue with it is it doesn't work well with a screen protector on. It makes the edges of the screen protector lift. And it gets annoying to keep trying to press them back down and under the edge of the case. Other than that it's a great case.

    I normally buy a case that makes the phone seem twice as big. This one has taken a little time to get use to but I really like how slim it is in my pocket. The grip is okay and when face down the screen is raised up as not to scratch the screen. I have not dropped the phone so I can't comment on how well it would protect it. The build quality is excellent. and it fits perfectly on my Samsung S7 Edge. It really feels like its part of the phone, very tight and snug.

    Tech 21 has been making excellent cases for years and this is just one more to add the their lineup! This case offers very good protection that is not bulky and that works with the curved screen very well. The black color is good as well as it is not clear but not solid at the same time so you can also see through the case and the back of the phone as well. I'd recommend this case to anyone looking for a thinner case that would offer a good amount of protection still.

    Case is very durable, has already helped my phone survive a drop or two unscathed. However, the case had a noticeable scratch across back of case upon opening but it’s not a deal breaker. Dirties easily, shows fingerprints easily, but if you’re not getting it for looks - it’s a non issue. It does its job.

    I had a similar Tech 21 case on my previous phone. While it was not soft all the way around like my previous version, it still has a good fit and mix of shock absorbent materials. However, it did not save my phone from a drop. Cracked the screen. Never had problems with my previous version. Also, didn't like that it only came in clear and black. More color variety would have been appreciated.

    I usually lean more towards otter boxes with my history of dropping my phone consistently. But of course, you compromise bulkiness for the extra protection with the otter boxes. So, the sales person recommended this case and so far it has done a great job at protecting my phone (dropped it many times already) and seems to be a very sturdy cover while also being very slim avoiding the bulky problem with other covers. Great product!

    I have about a dozen S7 Edge cases so far for my phone, and this one is by far my favorite. It has a very slim profile, and despite making the phone a little taller it is very easy to hold. The case is a little slippery, but don't let that deter you from it. The buttons are very responsive, and all of the ports are easily accessible too.

    No real complaints for the case. However, I use a sound meter app on the phone and the case caused a significant reduction in the mic input level which messed up the sound level. Since the case is easy to remove, I can take it off when using that app. No problems with phone conversations due to the case though. A good, average case that still allows use of the Galaxy S7 Edge features.

    This product purchase was of necessity; however, my choice of this product goes far beyond my expectations. I found the process of operation relatively simple and the ease of operation was really great. I would highly recommend this printer to someone who is in the market for a home-office setup.

    Case fits my GS7 Edge perfectly...quality construction. It's flexible, so not one of the "HARD" cases...if you want something more rugged and tough, try otterbox...but if you want something that feels more comfortable in your hand, and is sturdy enough to protect your phone, this certainly does the job.

    I bought this on a recommendation from a friend. It works great and prevents any bounce on a drop. However the only thing that I don't care for is how smooth the back is because it doesn't have a strong grip to other surfaces. My wife tried the s7 (regular version) tech 21 case for her phone and it does a lot better at resisting the slide. Overall, I love the case with the slim profile.
