Samsung isn’t a young company by any stretch of the imagination, but they’re relatively new players in the smartphone game. We’re not counting their first several attempts because everything before the Galaxy S series – quite frankly – sucked, and their boring, uninspired, and cheap phones gave them the wrong kind of reputation. Only now, with the release of the Galaxy S7, is Samsung finally creating a device that can right the wrongs of their past mistakes.
Both TechRadar and CNET have called the S7 one of the best phones of the year, preceded only by its curvy brother, the S7 Edge. With a 5.1 inch AMOLED display that meets a dual-curved backing, the bezel borders are impossibly small, so its large screen size doesn’t beef up the phone. It’s simple to hold one-handed, and it’s easy to slip into your pocket.
What has catapulted the S7 onto everyone’s radar is the very same design feature that makes it hard to personalize. Most phones follow a basic design formula, making it simple to outfit in a plastic case. But Samsung has broken the mould, and these bulky cases are a poor addition to such a fashion-forward phone. Though they make boastful claims about protecting your S7, in actuality they cover the cell in the very same materials that made the previous Samsungs so terrible. Cheap plastic adds considerable mass, too, which completely ruins the purpose of the slim bezel size, resulting in a large, unwieldy, and ugly phone that’s similar to the rejects of yesteryear.
Heft isn’t something you want, which is why customized vinyl decals (or skins) are the ideal solution for your personalization woes. When the right designers are at the helm, a skin provider can make S7 decals so thin that they’re barely noticeable under your fingertips. The designers at dbrand offer that exact fit, as the newest Galaxy skins from dbrand are cut with extreme precision and add a mere 0.23 millimeters to the phone. Galaxy S7 decals accommodate the ultra-slim bezels, its dual-curved backing, as well as the various ports, buttons, and speakers perfectly.
Complete coverage means you never have to worry about the decal coming up short, leaving large swathes of the phone exposed, or overlapping in unsightly ways, interfering with its functionality. All but the touch screen is encased in whatever design you choose fit. You can go down the sleek and sophisticated root of wood and leather textures, or embrace a bright and vibrant carbon fiber or matte color, or coordinate a uniquely ‘you’ combination by color coordinating the 3 pieces a typical skin comes in.
Whichever design you end up choosing, Galaxy S7 decals are easy to apply. No messy adhesives are needed to keep them attached, so you don’t have to play around with glues before you create an air-tight seal. Once attached, nothing will come between it and your phone. An S7 skin adds a protective layer saving your smartphone from scratches and scuffs. Even grime – the single yet no less notorious problem of the S7 – is no match for it, as it keeps smudges at bay.
