Incipio S7 Edge Cases Review

Incipio S7 Edge Cases Review

Incipio are a big name in the cases game, so I thought it would be best to grab some of their cases for my S7 Edge and give them a go.

Octane Pure Case

The back of this case is made from a grippy rubberised material which is excellent for grip. This also prevents the phone from slipping out of my pocket. The colour is a translucent back, so you can still see the white Samsung logo through the back.

Installation was easy and getting it off again was even easier. The whole case is one rubbery piece, so it can bend when being taken off and doesn’t feel like it is going to break the phone. The buttons are all rubberized and work well. The cutouts are perfect and work with my various usb and headphone accessories.

I will say that my issue was the material on the back had a funny feel to it. I couldn’t put my finger on the exact issue, but it was almost a textured rubber and left my hands feeling dirty without actually being dirty.

No bulk or weight was added to the phone with this case and had a lip around the top and bottom to protect the screen being faced down. You can grab the case for $29.99.


DualPro Case

This case is a two-layered design, with a soft rubber inner piece and the bright blue (other colours are available) harder shell. But I was surprised by how little the width of the phone was effected by this bulky looking case. The one thing this case brings me is the sense of sturdiness, and that it’s strong enough to survive a drop.

I am normally worried about the case lip going to far over the top of the phone. This has in the past effected the Edge ability and the fingerprint reader on the home button. But this case finishes just above the phone, so in no way affects any of those.

Overall, it’s a great product at the fair price of $29.99.


Octane Case

This is currently my daily driver. It’s one of the thinner cases, and has a great honeycomb design around the edges to help with grip. The cloudy back also looks pretty good, and adds another good dimension to the look of the phone.

I kept using this case as I wanted a slim fit case, that didn’t add much bulk to the phone, showcase the phone itself, could hold up to a pretty standard accidental drop, didn’t impact any of the Edge-specific features, and didn’t have a loose or awkward fit.

This case met all of the criteria for a really good price of $24.99.

DualPro SHINE Case

I was a little disappointed with this case, it doesn’t have the same quality feel that other Incipio cases do. When I put my S7 Edge into the case, the polycarbonate shell didn’t fit fully around the TPU insert which was a little concerning to me. I felt it detracted from the overall look of the S7 Edge.

The micro USB port had no issues fitting cables from any of the accessories I had. The headphone jack is a normal cutout, so any over large connectors may have a bit of trouble going in. The volume and power buttons on this case were a little stiff, which made it hard to know if a button worked. The volume buttons are a little better than the power button, but still difficult to press in the end.

Overall the poor fitment of the polycarbonate shell matched with the extra stiff buttons didn’t produce a good case. You can grab it for $34.99.
