Have you seen the video of one of the first owners of the iPhone come out of the store? If you haven’t, the story ends with this excited fanboy quickly opening the box in front of local TV cameras and right as he pulls it out, the phone slips from his hands and slams onto the ground. The guy got lucky that his phone didn’t shatter but it highlighted the most important thing you all should do after purchasing an expensive phone is to put a good solid case on it. There are a lot of purists out there that demand you shouldn’t hide the amazing design that is put into the high end smartphones out there but those people usually end up carrying around a phone with a crack in it. Instead of crying about covering up a phone with an ugly case, we recommend just getting a case that reflects the careful design efforts put into the iPhone and Galaxy smartphones (not that cheap plastic Hello Kitty cover you have).
The Gadgets 4 Guys office has officially begun to purchase their iPhone 6’s and 6+’s and quickly realized that a good case was needed for these things. The iPhone 6+ is so sleek that it has a high propensity to slide right out of your hands so we were pretty excited to try out some cases from UAG. UAG stands for Urban Armor Gear and right after pulling one of these out of the package, we quickly realized why. The first thing we noticed was how solid the case felt and understood how these had an impact resistant soft core that could take a pretty good shot. The composition and make of the UAG cases were impressive because they had a solid feel but maintained a light weight while doing so.
We were also pleasantly surprised that the case also came with a cover for the screen as well so it offered total protection for the phone. There are too many cases that just assume that you don’t want to protect your screen from scratches so Urban Armor Gear placed their covers with the case as well. UAG also made a good move by having their cases make the tactile buttons on the iPhone 6 much easier to press and get to (something that can be especially difficult on the 6+). Finally, you will still have full access to all of the necessary access ports meaning you won’t have to take the cover off to charge your phone every night. Urban Armor Gear cases are made for iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone 6/6+, iPhone 5/5s/5c, Galaxy SIII/S4/S5, and iterations of the Note.
