Mobile phones have become a necessity in today’s world. Not only can we communicate, in a plethora of ways via our phones, but the have also become somewhat of a magical assistant to provide us with any answer that we seek. We do not need to rub a bottle or lantern in order to release this mythical being, all that we have to do is hit a button on our device, ask a question and BANG… Our question is answered.

With these advanced new features comes a hefty price tag. Over the years I have used various phone cases in order to try and prolong the life of my mobile devices. I had been quite happy with the choices that I made in the past. Unfortunately for my Galaxy S8, that all changed last month. My phone took a fall and my screen cracked.

Coincidentally, my current contract had expired and qualified for a phone upgrade. I opted for the Galaxy S10 and placed my order. I knew that it would take a few days for my new phone to arrive so it was time to look for a new phone case. Since I was unhappy with the performance of my last phone case, I decided to look for a different manufacturer.

As I searched for phone cases that would fit my outdoor lifestyle, I came across a company called Urban Armor Gear (UAG). This immediately stuck out to me because I had reviewed a laptop case that I had picked up for my Macbook, 3 years earlier. (Here is that review if you are interested)

I have been extremely happy with the performance of my UAG Macbook case, I decided to give their phone case a try and ordered the Monarch Series from their website.

I have been testing this phone case over the past few weeks. It’s one of the easiest field-tests that I have done because my phone is always with me. It didn’t take much for me to realize how awesome this case really was.

The case is extremely light and feels great in the hand. The honeycomb grip around the edges makes the retention on this case a breeze; especially with one-handed operation, even when wet. It is built to military specification and is the best looking case that I have ever know.

-The Durable Construction Of This Case Is Only Second To It’s Streamlined Great Looks-


  • Handcrafted, feather-light construction with 5 layers of protection with top grain leather & metal hardware
  • Compatible with wireless charging. Limited compatibility with reverse charging
  • Features soft impact-resistant core & honeycomb traction grip
  • Ultra-responsive tactile buttons deliver a crisp, clean click-feel for improved functionality
  • Meets 2X military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6) and comes with a 10-year limited warranty

Bottom Line:
If you are in the market for a phone case that is tough or even tougher than your lifestyle, is built to military specifications and is the best looking case that you have ever owned… Take a look at what UAG has to offer. It truly is an awesome case.
