To simplify this review its pretty easy,The cases are a simple and in our review units clear….. Simple but effective,they do the job they have been made to do which is give your device some form of protection,However with the Galaxy S7 edge this was always going to be an issue without going to any extremes bar one case we have which does just that..

These are simple TPU cases which have shock absorption throughout and on a personal level I prefer this gel type case over hard shells,hard shells seem to just divert the shock elsewhere whereas the gel case does absorb,over testing so many cases this is my theory anyway and from the amount of cases tests I have conducted I am qualified to have this opinion,which we are all entitled to..

The cases are clear and flexible and comfortable to hold and grip is one strong point here,style though lacks compared to others and some just like that simple effect and again some prefer to have a nice design,I would be between both here and have the choice of both.

When it comes to functionality the keys all worked perfectly fine and not stiff,Some cases can give that feeling of the need to press harder when new which can be expected but these cases worked fine out of the pack,all ports are easily accessible and no issues here either,camera and flash areas again covered giving just enough room to place flat on a surface,On the front though the four corners are raised  slightly a,lowing the device to be placed face down comfortably..

The cases colours we had are see through which means you cans till see your natural device colour but being transparent with any case means longevity is an issue as to how long it can retain from going off colour, A wipe of a cloth now and then will suffice in the interim but I can see people holding on to cases that are discoloured for long,but for the price you really cant complain $8.99 with free shipping worldwide. And shipping for us was 5 working days after talking to the good folks at empirecase.com . Check out their full range of cases..
