    I am currently using an S-view cover on my S7E but it is slim and doesnt have a magnetic lid so can't be fully closed if the phone is dropped. I also have a Spigen case but it doesn't cover the display at all.

    I want to get a good wallet-type case with a magnetic cap for good display protection in case of dropping, but I am afraid that it might damage the phone's NFC or compass.. i don't know.

    Are these things safe and also what case would you recommend me for that matter ( Shieldon being current on my radar) ?

    Thank you.

    As far as I know, no it won't damage, unless you try to use wireless charging on it with the case on.

    Well, i guess this is a deal braker as i am charging my phone wireless only all the time (not to tear the USB port diwn).

    I use a high quality folio/wallet without a magnet. Just to eliminate potential problems.

    I have a Best Buy Tech21 notebook cover that has magnetic latch with no problem. I really hate notebook covers when taking photos, but wanted to protect Edge. You are right to be concerned about magnets, because while they likely won't erase data, they really can screw up your compass. Hasn't happened to me, but it could...ie: magnetic mounts, don't buy them.
