I purchased this case on sale to give me a better grip on my S7, which has a oddly slippery back panel. This case covers the back completely but only minimal protection for the corners and zero protection for the display. If your phone lives in your briefcase like mine, then this case is fine for those moments when you have your phone in use on carpeted areas. But if you live with your phone constantly in your hand, this is not the case for you. I cannot imagine that it would provide any substantial protection if you dropped your phone on a tile floor or in the streets.
