Grippy on the outside, slippery on the in?
Tech 21 Evo Wallet Review – Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge)
The Tech21 Evo Wallet is one of the highest rated S7 cases we’ve come across. Despite being massive in size, the added functionality and extra screen protection really helps the Evo Wallet in terms of the score we gave it. The folio portion of the case attaches magnetically to the case but the actual flap increase the chances that the device will slide of a flat surface. The weight of the case is definitely noticeable on the S7 Edge and sides of the case are quite slick.
In addition to the protection provided all Tech 21 products, the folio portion of the case will provide extra protection for your screen which is nice since the Tech 21 Evo Check and Evo Tactical don’t come with screen protectors.
Functionality is where the Evo Wallet shines. Surprisingly, the Evo Wallet allows you to easily access the S7’s power/sleep button (which is not the case for the Tech 21 Evo Check and Tactical). In terms of the wallet, we would recommend using 2 cards or 1 card and cash as anything more will make closing the folio problematic.
For our Tech 21 Evo Wallet review, we’ve given this S7 case a score 4.1 Eh’s out of 5. For other S7 Tech 21 products, check out our Evo Check and Evo Tactical Reviews. We’ve also reviewed cases from Spigen and Otterbox.
