    The postman just came with my Spigen case from Amazon. With a 5.5" screen vs the Note 4's 5.7", I didn't think there was going to be much of a difference in size. I was completely wrong. The N4 dwarfs the S7 Edge and I'm really nervous I'm not going to like it. Before my N4 I was on a N3, so I'm used to a bigger phone now and I said I'd never go backwards. Have to see tomorrow...

    Spigen S7 Edge case on the left vs Tech21 Note 4 case on the right (front then back):

    Attention men, you are free to ignore this post.

    Well, this is ironic. A case that I ordered for my Note 4 arrived today from China. It’s so cute! It’s a case on a chain that looks like a Chanel Le Boy bag. Oh well. I took off my S View cover, and I will use this for the next week or so until my pre-ordered silver Edge arrives for me at Best Buy.

    Aw c'mon. It's Chanel. And it's for my Note 4, which only has one week (or so) more to live.

    Now, for my S7 Edge, I want a case that is clear as possible. It's such a beautiful phone; I want a case that's practically invisible. Or maybe Louis Vuitton....

    And here is my Chanel vintage jumbo flap bag, my Chanel pink patent wallet on a chain and my faux Chanel Note 4 case, which will be available on Craig's List Boston in about one week's time, and this, I swear, will be the last silly off topic post I will make on this thread. Forgive my past transgressions.

    How about cases that support the phone's built in wireless charging? They have to be pretty thin, 1-2mm at the most, but it would be enough to protect from scratches.

    Most cases should work with the charger. Except the Otterbox like super thick ones.

    I have had no issues in the past with thicker cases. My GF did have one thin one once that blocked the charging, however. We think it had some metal inside for rigidity or something like that.

    I thought that. I'm going to try the Spigen clear TPU case - super thin.

    I like thin cases, just because. Most of the time I buy 20 cases and never use them. I think I will just buy one or 2 and get the insurance and that will be it. I am sure it will save me money LOLOL

    I prefer cases because I resale everything when I'm done with it, and the cleaner it is, the better the price.

    Me and my husband started off always using Seidio and even reviewed a couple cases before. He liked their big convert with the holster. Than at one point for one of later phones Seido's were not out yet and Best Buy had Otterbox and he got the Defender and I got the Commuter and we liked them. I have a HTC Dot View light up case now and just got this$15 dollar clear rubber case cause they didn't have commuter at the time. My husbands holster broke and Otterbox sent him a whole new complete everything which was nice but now I don't know what he'll do if they aren't making a defender for the edge. I might try seidio's kickstand case I don't know.

    I am thinking of another flip cover, in silver, natch, to match my Edge.

    I am also looking for a case.

    I liked the Spigen Rugged Armor on my Nexus 6P and so I was thinking maybe going with that here too. Or then the Liquid Crystal case from Spigen.

    The Samsungs official leather cover looks nice (like the iPhone leather cases) so that is an option too.

    Here are the Tudia for S7 Edge and The Spigen Rugged Armor on my S7 Edge. I like the way the Tudia feels better. Mostly because it is smaller and a tad thinner but it does not have the drop protection of the Spigen. Spigen feels fine as well though just feels thicker but looks better.

    OMG I love that case I want Silver also. That would be perfect for me at work cause I keep phone in my pocket and have scratched up Zagg before on my M8 and M9 and had to get them replaced. I have this Dot View light up case now on my phone. I'll probably sell my Gear which we don't care about and get this.

    i have had every type of case on my phones and each one has it's pros and cons. i put together a little guide so here is my 2c on cases

    1. Clear bendy cases:
    Cases for the S7 edge-61xmtq59gcl._sl1000_.jpg
    cheapest of the bunch. like a condom for your phone. easy to put on, easy to remove. these are a dime a dozen. might protect from drops up to a few feet. tend to yellow over time. the sides stop hugging the phone over time and start to droop. also dust/dirt collect underneath and since it's clear, it shows.

    2. clear back with frame (can either be soft tpu backing or hard polycarbonate aka "PC")
    Cases for the S7 edge-71b8l4bffdl._sl1500_.jpg
    framed cases (usually PC) are better than #1 because they hold the case onto the phone. cheaper cases will still yellow so think about going with a reputable brand or check reviews. dust also somehow manages to find its way under the case and because it's clear, it shows. because the back of the phone is glass (or some version of it) i recommend covering with a screen protector. cases rub against the phone over time and create little dull rub marks (dust/dirt worsens the effect).

    3. one layer cases
    Cases for the S7 edge-719iw9btwpl._sl1500_.jpg
    the most abundant type with the most variety. similar to #1. can be flimsy or rigid. easy to remove. protection varies, usually mild to moderate.

    4. two layer cases
    Cases for the S7 edge-61lraiuyhql._sl1000_.jpg
    my favorite type. like #2, it has a secondary layer or frame that holds everything together. this type also comes in a wide variety. protection is moderate to high but it can be thicker. also more cumbersome to remove, requiring a method of removal that, if not followed would break the case.

    5. leather cases
    Cases for the S7 edge-81apsm07eel._sl1500_.jpg
    look great but are susceptible to wearing down during normal wear and tear. the leather tends to soften and become fuzzy. also stain easily. lifespan on the short side compared to the rest of the cases.

    6. wallet cases
    Cases for the S7 edge-81rfqffuczl._sl1500_.jpg
    i particularly don't like these cases but it might be for some. when i get my phone out, i just want my phone, not my entire wallet. also don't want to flash all my cards when i am on the phone.

    7. indestructible cases
    Cases for the S7 edge-61jfwquroml._sl1000_.jpg
    these turn your phone into a nokia brick. you can cause great injury if you throw this at someone. highest protection at the cost of being really thick it probably needs a belt clip or holster. some make phone waterproof, with the s7 it's moot.

    8. wood cases (none available yet)
    Cases for the S7 edge-71lx6wom6zl._sl1500_.jpg
    these are usually found at county fairs or malls that specialize in custom engraving designs on them. they are usually smooth. protection is moderate to high as they are usually thick. but may crack if dropped the wrong way. fit is snug and removing routinely is impossible without fear of scratching the phone. short lifespan compared to the rest of cases. can also stain or retain scratch marks.

    note:
    - the more texture you have on the case, the more dirt/lint that collects in between the design
    - certain cases/bumpers/frames especially made out of metal may interfere with reception.
    - think twice about getting a credit card case if you are going to be using wireless charging.
    - tempered glass/screen protection for the front AND back is always a good idea even if you have a case.
    - skins/wraps/decals/stickers may look great but do diddly squat for protection and can be difficult to remove. initially it is easy but over time the adhesive bakes onto the phone. luckily the phone is waterproof but tread with caution and read reviews for these.
    - having no case is ideal because the phone is so beautiful, but it requires the utmost care and attention. probably it's own pocket.

    sorry for the long post
