All smart Galaxy S7 owners know that Samsung cases are nothing less than essential. It’s easy to think that you can keep your phone safe without one, but the reality rarely matches up. While we might be extra careful to prevent our phone dropping or getting wet, we can’t control what the people around us do.
No matter how tightly you hold your phone in your hand, someone might bump into you, and whoosh, your S7 is sailing through the air! Within a second or two, it’s crashed to the ground. If you’re lucky, you’ll just have a cracked screen. But the worst case scenario is that your phone could be fully unresponsive. Dead. Then you’d have to pay out for an expensive repair and replacement.
The great news is, this scenario doesn’t have to happen to you. There are so many Samsung cases out there to choose from, all of which can protect your Galaxy S7. With different levels of protection, price points, and styles, you’re sure to find something that suits you and your Galaxy S7 perfectly.
For this article we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Samsung cases for the S7. Check them out and see which one matches your requirements.
Let’s start with waterproof Samsung cases.
Ghostek Atomic 2.0
This is one of the best Samsung cases out there when it comes to drop protection. But it doesn’t stop at just that. Here’s how it protects your Galaxy S7:
- Hefty bumper made from aluminum alloy, that goes around the edges and corners of your phone to keep them safe
- Full waterproofing up to 10 minutes in depths of 3.3ft or less
- Snow and iceproofing
- Mud, dust and dirtproofing
- Screen protector and raised bevel working together to ensure your display stays intact and fully functional
Because of the high quality bumper, this is the most expensive of the Samsung cases on this list, at $54.98. However, it’s certainly worth the price if superior drop protection appeals.
If you wanted more waterproofing that the Atomic 2.0 could give, the Studstar might just be the right case for your Galaxy S7. Here’s what it can do:
- Waterproof your phone up to 6.6ft, so you can go double the depth
- Ice and snow proof your phone
- Lint, mud, dirt and dustproof your phone
- Keep your phone safe from drops with the back cover made out of TPU. This material disperses harmful vibrations from drops so they won’t affect your Galaxy S7
- Keep your screen intact with raised bevels and a fully inbuilt screen protector
Because it doesn’t have an aluminum bumper, it is cheaper than the Atomic 2, at $35.98. If you need extra depth in the water, this is the case we’d opt for.

Punkcase Lucid 2.0
No more waterproofing, iceproofing or snowproofing here. But this case is good at keeping your Galaxy S7 safe from drops. Here’s how it accomplishes that:
- The clear back case is built from TPU
- A screen protector is included
- The Lucid 2.0 was designed with an anti shock system, including extra protection in the corners
At $19.89, we think this case is an absolute steal. It keeps your phone protected while allowing you to show off the Galaxy S7 signature good looks.
Wow. We don’t want to be biased, but we think this is the best looking of the Samsung cases we’ve featured on this list so far. But it’s not just a pretty face - it does a great job of protecting your phone, too.
- Includes an explosion proof screen protector
- A reinforced aluminum frame raises this case’s game. It’s among the best of slimline clear cases out there, when it comes to shockproofing
- The TPU back cover will absorb shocks with ease
To be honest, we can’t believe this case is only $19.98. You’re getting premium materials and build quality, that work together to save your phone from harsh drops. Plus you’ll get one of the best looking Samsung cases out there. This is truly a great price for a great case. Awesome.
