    Our friends over at VRS Design was nice enough to send us some cases to review. Overall, the cases are similar in quality to Spigen or Caseology cases. They aren't as refined as Otterbox, Lifeproof or other high end cases, but those also cost a lot more. With the exception of the wallet case which came in a box, the remaining cases came in a generic gray plastic bag, which you can see in some of the review photos. Case needs are so wide because many people have different needs. I tried to point out what I thought was important, and also provide lots of pictures, so that you can see in detail what it looks like on the phone. The pictures where taken with and without flash, and I picked the ones that looked best.

    This particular review focuses on the Crystal Bumper Case, but you can read my reviews on the other VRS cases here:

    S7 Edge Crystal Bumper Case

    This is an attractive two-piece case with a clear TPU back and sides and a matte polycarbonate bumper. The bumper is offered in Shine Gold, Satin Silver, Steel Silver, and Rose Gold. I received both the Shine Gold and Steel Silver Colors. Since I have a black S7 Edge, the steel silver (dark gray) compliments my phone well. The home and power buttons are separate pieces and are a bit loose, and makes a rattling sound if you shake the phone. They require a moderate pressure to activate.

    There is a moderate lip on the top and bottom of the phone. To install, separate the two pieces, install the main back/sides piece first, then snap on the polycarbonate bumper.

    The fitment is pretty snug, however, it pushed up my Zagg Invisible Shield HD screen protector. The holes are a good size and centered and the vast majority of micro-usb cables and headphone cables should fit just fine. It feels comfortable to hold one handed,however, note that since it is dual layered, that it is obviously a bit wider thicker than single layered cases. The grip is good however, if you have oily fingers like me, then you would need to clean the back frequently or it would become slippery. The back is also a fingerprint magnet. In my case, I had to clean the back a few hours after using it because it was pretty slippery by then but this is true of most TPU cases I have used. It doesn’t provide as much grip as my Speck Candyshell Grip case, for those who need the ultimate grip, but it should be adequate for most people. However, this case is military grade drop tested, so it should provide decent protection if dropped.
