UAG for S7 Edge
We have seen the design of Samsung’s phones take it up a notch in recent years, and with the latest Galaxy S7 Edge we get a dual curved display that simply looks stunning. Something we have stated time and time again, it doesn’t matter how good a phone looks when it’s naked, but how good it looks in a cover, because honestly, if you drop hundreds on a device and don’t protect it, then your just kicking yourself in the long run.

Urban Armour Gear have consistently made great looking covers for most of the flagship devices avaialble, and the new S7 Edge also got the same treatment.

Today we’re taking a look at the Magma and Ash covers from UAG for the S7 Edge.

Magma (S7 Edge)

The Magman cover is a partially translucent Red with the still stunning UAG design.

Thankfully the sides of the cover make for a much nicer grip, and even better than the phone itself.

Like always we can see the extra protection around the corners of the device.

The cut-outs and and buttons are perfect and easy to find/press.

The cover extends around the side of the device, and doesn’t impact the displays function at all. The top of bottom of the cover also extends out, meaning your display is still protected even with the phone face down.

Ash (S7 Edge)

The Ash cover comes with a mostly clear, but sort of smoky like translucent colour. Of course everything else about the cover is the same as the above Magma cover.

While the cover for the S7 Edge has some design tricks it has to deal with, the more standard S7 doesn’t and the UAG case fits like it always does. The Cobalt cover is the semi-transparent Blue color and it looks fantastic.

The design is almost identical to the S7 Edge, but of course includes larger sides that extend around the device.

Conclusion

The S7 Edge is a tricky device to protect, since we have a limited amount of area on the sides to which the cover can grip properly and allow the user to hold it comfortably.

Thankfully UAG not only managed to find a way, but also did with while keeping up excellent protection and continuing their fantastic style. While we definitely believe protection is more important than aesthetic, we believe that UAG are the best of both and offer an excellent level of protection for a very tricky phone design, but still keep their great style intact.

The S7 obviously doesn’t share the same limited side area, so the UAG covers are very similar to the S6 from last year, and we can see the same excellent protection and great design as before.

We highly recommend UAG covers for anyone looking to protect their S7 or S7 Edge with the great Urban Armour look.
