While we’ve already detailed some excellent official accessories for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for buyers, as well as some exciting cases, users who recently bought the phone from carriers during recent deals are looking to protect the display.

Out of the box the new Galaxy S7 Edge is very durable. Samsung’s added a scratch-resistant and strong Gorilla Glass 4 technology to both the front and the back, but that also means a drop could crack glass on either side. It’s also IP68 dust and water-resistant, so it’s far more durable than last year. That said, screens still get damaged, and need to be protected.
