Samsung has officially launched the 2016 flagship, the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge in a few markets now, and it isn’t only the smartphones that seem like the deal here. Samsung has ensured that the users don’t have to look around a lot to find the right accessories for the best use of the smartphones.
There are quite a few accessories, including cases, covers, keyboard case, wireless charger, and battery packs as well. These accessories are all made exclusively for the two phones – Galaxy S7, and the S7 Edge. Let’s have a look at each of them.
Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Official Accessories
Do keep in mind that we are talking only about the official accessories here, so this is all from Samsung and they won’t carry any impressive price tags along, but the functionality too might be quite different from the third party accessories.
Before we begin, check out the Best Samsung Galaxy S7 features.
LED View Cover
The cover comes with LED lights that keep the user informed with notifications, and by just swiping on the cover, one can receive calls, turn off alarms, and if you set up icons for special contacts, those appear on the cover to let you know who is calling.
Clear View Cover
This cover doesn’t try to hide a lot, and the content on the display is viewable. Apart from giving protection to the screen, the Clear View Cover helps you handle incoming calls and also control music on the phone.
S View Cover
A matte finish case, this covers the screen and turns it off whenever you cover it, but there is a window where a customized screen shows up. In this little area, you can respond to call, play music, and even take photos.
This is a back cover made of leather on its surface, and there are perfect cutouts for the buttons and connectivity ports, and also for the camera area. It is said to offer a firm grip with adequate thickness and curving corners.
This is like the S View cover without any wallet, but with the added advantage of a wallet-like slit where one can keep their card intact. It adds a layer just like in any case, but the cards could increase the thickness even more.
This is similar to the Clear View case, but the Clear cover is for the back panel. Since the body of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is made of glass, this layer adds protection to that panel, given with all the perfect cutouts for buttons, camera module and connectivity slots.
This doesn’t look any good, but the Keyboard cover is more about functionality rather than the design. A full-fledged QWERTY physical keyboard with a profile that matches the color of the phone you are buying, it has the physical navigation buttons at the bottom because the actual ones on the phone get hidden beneath this. Once you are done using it, pull it out, and you can place it on the back.
Wireless Charger for Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge
Something that isn’t new from Samsung for its smartphones, the Wireless charger here is unique for having the fast charging feature. Earlier, fast chargers were with a horizontal top, but now, it can stand at an angle while the phone still gets charged.
This particular accessory has so many alternatives that you should probably ignore this, given the fact that Samsung’s power banks are quite expensive when compared to the competition. Though, if you are looking at the same brand, the battery packs come in either 5100 mAh or 10200 mAh capacities.
Backpack for Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge
This should do good to the battery of the smartphone because the external back case comes with an extra battery that can give more life to your phone. It directly fits onto your phone, and there is no extra connector needed. There’s a power status indicator that shows how much charge is left in the case.
There are a lot of other accessories already made and tested by known brands from the world of accessories, but you can first take a look at the ones Samsung sells officially because you know they’d be the perfect ones, made by the manufacturer of the phone itself.
Oh, and for those early adopters who pre-book the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 Edge, there is a free Samsung Gear VR headset given for free, so you already are getting one of the best accessory if you choose the device at the right time, isn’t it?
