    Great case for this slippery, touchy phone.

    Posted

    Great case. Not really into flips but the S7 Edge is a very thin, slippery phone. I have big hands and The Edge makes it hard to hold the phone without triggering something as well as leaving the screen vulnerable. This case makes it possible for me to actually handle this phone and be usable. It provides close to Otter-box type protection for the back and sides of the phone while remaining incredibly thin and sleek in design. Add to that the flap provides complete coverage for the screen, the best part and most exposed part of this phone. The "downside" is this flap which folds all the way over the front of the phone to the back and secures magnetically to the full length of the back. It feels very secure, neat and easy to hold as this case is coated in a rubber like matte finish. Personally, I like this design as opposed to one piece leather flaps which quickly wear out and cause the case to become loose and floppy. With this design, no worries about things like keys or change in my pocket scratching the face of this phone by accident. As I said, downside, the case when closed doesn't accommodate a few key S7 phone features like "always on" and "edge displays". I don't use the edge display other than when the case is open so I don't miss this and the always on means that when I do open the case, I can always see the time and calendar. I don't miss these features but for some this may be a deal breaker. The case is thin, strong and feels like it will stand up to long term use and be able to be cleaned like new simply by wiping it off with a damp cloth. If you can forego a few features, I highly recommend this case for this slippery, touch sensitive flagship phone.

    Handy protection

    I've been using this since I got my S7 edge (after returning my note 7 months ago). I hadn't researched protective cases at all; the friendly, helpful Best Buy salesman showed me this one. I love having a slot for my driver's license and a credit card (that and a business card is all it will hold comfortably). That is really all I need when I want to run into a store and not carry a bulky wallet or purse. It gets moderate abuse in my purse or on various rough surfaces, and my phone has landed on the floor/ground a handful of times with no damage done to the phone, and the case is relatively unscathed. I also like the wrap around feature that closes magnetically (not a super strong magnet, but it does the job. It has not affected my credit card.) All of the ports are accessible with it closed, and when open it can fold into a makeshift stand in landscape orientation, but the magnetic flap covers a small portion of the screen. (I have an alternate stand when I want to view the entire screen. It seemed a bit pricey, but it has earned its keep. I am happy with my purchase.

    Durable case for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

    I bought this case, because the case I bought to go with my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge had been delayed and I wanted to start using my new phone, which I didn't feel comfortable carrying around in my pocket with a case on it. So I went to Best Buy and after checking out their selection of cases available in store, I decided upon this case since it was a exactly what I was looking for in a case. This particular case covers the back of the phone as well as the front (screen area) making so that the screen is easily protected. While the cost of the case was a little bit of a set back, it is actually worth the price paid as the materials that make up the case are very durable. I would highly recommend this case to anyone in the market for a great Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge case. While I did eventually receive my other case and are currently using it, I may switch back to this one since I is much more durable and using tougher materials to protect the phone.

    Excellent case

    Very nice case and flap doesn't open when dropped. I use it for the screen cover and not a wallet. Metal clip on flap hits glass when flap closes but isn't clasped to phone which makes me think it may scratch the glass and being metal it means the case has to be opened before wireless charging and when using Samsung Pay which is also magnetic. I use both very frequently but the juice is worth the squeeze here - the case is protecting the glass when in a bag or pocket. Experience with the phone suggests that the rubbery screen protectors get scuffed up when keys are in your pocket with the phone and a case friendly protector doesn't cover all the glass so I always worry about scratches. This case solves that problem and it looks great too. Not bulky for me but I don't use the wallet feature.

    Evolution wallet case does a decent job protecting

    After purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy Edge and knowing how hard I am on my cellphone, I purchased the Eva case right away in the store with the phone. I have already dropped the phone and the case held it snuggly inside. My last case for my older phone, the phone would pop out if I dropped it. Only thing I didn't like was just getting use to the way you have to open it to answer your phone. You have to flip a small tab to the right then I fold the left side behind the phone. The other issue indefinitely don't like is the very small slot for business cards on the left side of the csse. It is so small and snug it is very hard to get a business card in. Matter a fact you can only put 1 card in no more. I also wish it had 2 more slots. One for your drivers license and another for a credit card. Other than that it is a good protective case.

    Wallet case with a high-tech look.

    This is not your typical wallet case. It has a modern, high-tech look to it with its matte black finish and full length magnetic latch.The design is different in that it doesn't quite cover the phone completely, but leaves the top and bottom slightly exposed. The inside is a nice soft light tan finish. The credit card slot holds one card comfortably, but that's it. The cover has a recess for the home button to prevent accidental presses. The volume and power buttons are VERY stiff and difficult to press. It is very durable and shows no wear marks during the few weeks I've had it. The kickstand feature is okay but not very sturdy. Overall it's a decent wallet case. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it's growing on me - except for those buttons!

    Tough but light weight case. Love how it slides in pocket but also protects screen. Got roll on liquid screen cover for additional protection. Can barely tell it's on there. Only draw back of case is that it's gets in way when taking pics on windy days cuz it flops around. Wish it had camera hole on front when closed to remedy that. LOVE the card insert pocket within it. Slipped my license in it so phone is all I have to carry to go most places. Been leaving purse at home. And don't have to worry about licence falling out of my pocket any longer. Worth the money. Easy to get it off and on too. Also doesn't interfere with my edge screen functions. Best on market for that so far.

    Complete Protection for Your S7 Edge

    I recently upgraded to the S7 Edge through a carrier protection plan after a drop shattered the fancy edge on my S6 Edge. Because of the form factor, a standard open-faced case just can't offer edge protection, so I went with the Tech 21 Evo wallet. It's a very sturdy, classy looking case. Since most drops happen when I'm pulling the phone out of my pocket, or picking it up, the wraparound style is a good solution for total protection, at least for me. The only cons of the case for me are 1. No wireless charging support and 2. It's not at all car-mount friendly. Other than that, good product.

    Nice Wallet Phone Case

    This is the first wallet phone case I have owned for a phone. It could easily use some more space for cards, as it only has one slot that can really only hold 2 cards in. I currently use it for my debit card and my license. But one wouldn't be able to fit much more in there than that. You can slip the phone in and out of the case relatively easy, but the case does hold the phone in good when not wanting to remove the phone. I like that it has the magnetic flap to hold the flap shut, and kinda gives the phone some protection for the screen if you don't initially have a screen protector, (which I did not have one)

    Works great...but...

    The case itself works great! It is extremely stiff and difficult to use for the first day or so, but once the folding piece loosens up, it's easy to hold. However, the fold blocks the cool functions of the edge and the always on display...so that is a downer...but if you turn off the always on option, it helps with battery life even further which is already great. It also makes using the camera a pain in the button. I truly only purchased this case as no screen protector's were available when I picked up my phone at the early release. All in all though, it's a good case and protects the phone and screen really well. I'd recommend still.

    This wallet case is awesome. It can hold up to 4 cards and the case still closes and dont look bulky. It has a durable tek21 outside that helps protect your screen and eliminates the shock of a drop!! Its durable and sleek. I can still put in in my back or side pants pocket. The case is not Go Live on Facebook friendly. You have to hold the cover of the case out the cameras view. This action tires your hands and fingers quicker than with a regular case. But its worth buying bc its an everyday case for work or school. I would recommend getting this case plus a regular case as well.

    First wallet case I really liked

    Usually I don't like wallet and flip cases, however, this one was very well made. The issue i usually have with cases like this is that they can open whenever they want, but the magnet on this one prevents that from happening. The texture is also very good at keeping it feom slipping out of your hand while also providing good shock resistance if you were to drop it. Would deffinatly get it again. The only downside is that because it does overlap the edges of the phone, ad most cases do, it will push on the edges of any screen protector you put on your phone.

    This case is great and offers the full protection that is needed. It is definitely worth the buy that the store sales person recommended. However, the store sales person also recommended that i purchase the screen protector, which was an absolute NO. Once i put the screen protector on with my phone in this case, the screen protector cracked. I could not use it. The screen protector and this case cannot be used together. The sales person should never have recommended both products at the same time. It should be one or the other.

    This case works wonderfully if you want to make sure your screen is protected all the time. The handiness of having your ID or credit card on you all the time is also a plus. The case is slim enough that you're easily able to get it in and out of your pocket and the magnetic flap holds the cover well. It's also easy to hold if you fold the cover back which also doubles as a "kickstand". This case is also sturdy unlike some of its competitors. Overall, you can feel secure using this case!

    I love my case. I've dropped my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge twice already and my phone survived without a scratch. I love the fact that my cover wraps around by a magnet bc I don't have to worry about my case popping open when I don't want it opened. I also can use my case as a stand when I'm watching my shows on my phone. I just wish there were more colors besides black and baby pink and maybe have a case that has the screen preview in the front. Those are the only reasons why I'm giving it a 4 Star rate.

    This is a pretty good case. Not sure if it's the phone or due to the case that causes my phone to heat up but it does. I understand why but I don't care for how the case wraps all the around the phone. I have to fold it back to get a good handle on the phone. Then the camera is covered. I got this one bcuz they didn't have the tech 21 Evo tactical case which is the awesome. I've dropped my phone twice and no damage has been done so it's doing what it supposed to which is always good!

    My initial case for my S7 Edge and I returned it. It's a sturdy, well made and good looking. I took issue with 2 things mainly. The first was that the plastic in which the phone snaps destroyed my screen protector. Nothing I did would make the two compatible. The second is that the magnet wraps around to the back of the case meaning that when you pick the phone up and open the cover, it's akin to unwrapping a package. It takes too long. Minor inconvenience I know, but still a deal breaker.

    I really like the design and concept of this case. Unfortunately the execution left me worried. Since the Edge comes with wireless charging, and I bought the charger, I had to return this case. The magnetic closure wraps to the back, making we wary of using it with the charger. I have since returned the product, but my issues may not be a deal breaker for others. I recommend only for those that don't use the wireless charging feature.

    I have been very pleased with the purchase of my phone case. I like the fact that you do not have to maintain the case open to be able to talk on the phone. There is a slot inside for you to easily place a card or two inside (example debit card or DL). The case is very flexable and will fold all the way back when using your phone. The magnetic closure is a plus and the color is unisex nothing flashy which is nice if you like a more neutral look.

    This case protects my phone really well but is thin and light weight. It also flips open to act as a type of kick stand to hold the pho e up for viewing. It holds a few credit cards or IDs. I would recommend it to a friend. I am 46 years old and female. I really like that it protects the screen too!
