Edited by David Mason, Eng, VisiHow

If you want to help make sure your phone does not get broken, you should put a case on it. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is no exception. Even though it has curved sides to the screen, this does not mean you will not be able to put a case on it. In fact, Samsung has specially made cases designed to fit on the S7 Edge. These cases can be purchased directly from Samsung, or you can find one online through Amazon, eBay, or elsewhere. Wherever you get a case for your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, it's important to understand how to securely attach it to the phone. This is because if you do not properly secure the case to the phone, then the phone could bounce out of the case in the event you drop it. It's also important to know how to remove the case, as applying too much pressure when removing the case, or attempting to do it the wrong way, can damage your phone or cause you to drop it. Read on for our tutorial on how to add or remove a case from the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Add a Case to the Galaxy S7 Edge

    Once you have opened the case, you will want to remove the protective film around the Edges and on the back
    .
    This film can be thrown away, as you will not need it again once you have secured the case to the phone.

    Next, apply some non-abrasive cleaner to a soft cloth and then wipe the back of your phone clean
    .
    This is to ensure that no fingerprints or oil are on the Galaxy S7 Edge. Make sure you wipe the sides and edges of your phone as well. The reason for this is that the oil from your fingerprints will attract dirt dust and other debris. Over time these can scratch your phone if they get inside the case. Since you're putting a new case on your phone, you want to make sure you keep things as clean as possible.

Additional Tips

  • If your case does not fit snugly on the phone, it is defective. Exchange it for another case.
