    I tryed the case mate but the case didn't offer enought protection on the belved edges. I returned the case.

    IMO, this is the best one. The back is clear, but the bezel matches the color of the phone bezel. Plus it has a slight lip on the corners so you can lay it face down. Hides fingerprints too.

    I agree. I just picked this up yesterday and it's great. Thin, light and it looks like it's part of the phone.

    I'm particularly interested in that opinion. I generally think clear cases are fugly. They remind me immediately of cheap furniture covers. Letting the "beauty" of your phone show for other materials (leather, ballistic nylon, brushed metal) simply fails, because the clear case adds an obvious shine or cloudiness or both.

    Lately, I've been thinking that the near-mirrored back of my silver S7E just might be the right material to overcome my bias against clear cases. I figure it would help disguise there's a clear case covering it in ways other materials don't.

    So, with all that in mind, do you think I would like the Samsung case?

    Anyone out there generally agree with my clear case opinion, but find they work well on the S7E, as I suspect?

    Thanks!

    If the S7E wasn't so uncomfortable to hold without a case, and wasn't prone to unwanted edge touches, I wouldn't be considering a clear case. I'd just enjoy it without one at home. Historically I've gone without a case at home a good deal of the time.

    Thanks, Lance. I saw that vid a while back, but wasn't watching with any intent of getting a clear one. In fact, I think I was still waiting to receive my phone then.

    That case and the Samsung look most promising, and of course the Samsung is much more expensive. I'd pay the difference if the back of the Samsung is significantly more "invisible."

    I normally hate clear cases too. They would be fingerprint magnets, or they would have the ugly rainbow effect. Some would easily scratch. The Samsung case is the best i have ever seen. IMO, night and day better than Spigen. I haven't taken it off my phone since i got it. Looks and feels like it's part of the phone. Great grip too.

    I love Ringke Fusion in clear. It is soft, completely covers the beveled edges, and has protection over the buttons instead of just cut outs. It also has built in port covers for the headphone jack and charging port to keep them covered when not in use. I got it from Amazon like $20. I had one for my S6 Edge also and loved it, was very happy when this available.

    Why would you need/want covered ports with a waterproof phone?
