For those buying a new phone this year, the S7 and the S7 Edge are both top-of-the-line picks for this year’s upgrade, which was released on the same day as its competitor LG G5. Unfortunately, the S7 Edge is just slightly different enough from the S7 to require it’s own case.

The textured grips placed strategically around the sides of the case are also designed to prevent the phone from falling out of your hands while the raised bezel on the front of the case helps to prevent the screen from cracking when it lands face-down.

The VRS Design Damda Clip is another low-footprint phone case for the Galaxy S7 Edge that’s touted as “thin, but practical” as it has just enough protection to keep your phone safe, but not enough to get in the way. The case is made of a combination of polyurethane and polycarbonate and has a raised lip around the front side to keep your screen from touching the ground in the event that it falls.

Meanwhile, the backside of the case features a slot big enough for 2 cards, a photo ID, or a wad of cash. The Damda Clip is available in white, dark silver, rose gold, satin silver, and shine gold.

6. VRS Layered Dandy Leather Wallet
