Review: Urban Armor Gear Monarch Series Case For iPhone 7/6/6S Plus

Posted in Products with tags on September 12, 2017 by itnerd

When I buy a case for my phone, it has to be tough. That’s because I have this habit of either dropping my phone in places like server rooms and wiring closets, or I do things like hiking, cycling, cross country skiing and the like where the possibility of dropping my phone exists. So when Urban Armor Gear sent me their Monarch Series Case for my iPhone 7 (it also fits the 6 Plus and 6S Plus), it got my attention.

So, what makes this case special? For starters, it weighs next to nothing and is extremely thin. Which means it doesn’t add too much in the way of bulk and the phone once in the case still feels decent in you pocket. The fact that is so thin is something that I really liked as I do not like cases that add bulk to an otherwise thin phone. The construction of the case makes it clear that it’s meant to survive. It’s easy to grip which means it won’t slip out of your hands. It’s got redundant buttons that make it easy to power the phone on and off as well as adjust the volume. The case has a very minimal raised edge around the screen so that if you put your phone face down, an object won’t scratch the screen. But to make doubly sure that your screen doesn’t get damaged, I’d recommend a screen protector as well. Finally, it’s got a metal frame and a lot of impact absorbing material. The two materials combine to ensure that a drop will not kill your phone. In fact, the company claims that it is constructed to exceed the military drop-test standard (MIL STD 810G 516.6) by a factor of 2.

If you look closely at the picture, the company has also added some leather to give the case a bit of style.

I accidentally did a drop test of my own when my iPhone 7 Plus fell out of my pocket from a height of three feet onto concrete and the phone survived. What was even more impressive was the fact that the case didn’t have a scratch.

The Urban Armor Gear Monarch Series Case for the iPhone 7/6/6S Plus retails for $60 USD and is warrantied for 10 years which implies that they have a lot of confidence in the quality of this case. Thus I would suggest that if you want a case that will survive whatever you can throw at it, this case should be at the top of your list to look at.

The new case provides 360-degree protection, shielding the screen, corners, edges, and backs of tablets via a lightweight adjustable Exo-Skeleton armor frame. The unique design is engineered to adjust both vertically and horizontally to conform to the exact size of the tablet, ensuring that the case stays secure in the toughest drops and falls. Impact resistant rubber distributes shock through the case’s frame and away from the tablet, helping the case achieve MIL-SPEC protection with a variety of tablet sizes.
