What’s up guys, Derrick from MAXKOE here! Looks like we got ourselves another Samsung Galaxy S4 case review on our hands! Today we are doing a review of the Urban Armor Samsung Galaxy S4 case. Below is the Video review/unboxing as well as the full written review.
From the get go, the Urban Armor Gear case is in nice premium packaging that eludes to what kind of case you are about to use to protect your phone. Once out of the box, its easy to realize that there has been a lot of attention to detail. From the metal finish on the UAG logo to the honeycomb texture on the inside, the case does feel extremely premium in the hand; and while it does add good protection it does not increase the weight of the phone like other good protective cases.
The case has a nice industrial/modern look to it which can be most visualized by the fake screws on the back of the case. Overall, the Urban Armor Gear case looks fantastic and won’t leave you compromising safety for phone looks. The only downside to the case’s design is the absence of more feminine case color options. Other phones such as the iPhone 4/4s/5 have more feminine options for those who don’t want a black, blue, white, or orange case.
The outer shell material does feel like it will protect the Samsung Galaxy S4 very well and when combined with the shock absorbing corners and interior this case is sure to make you feel confident when carrying your phone around. The shock absorbent corners also double as pegs that raise both the back of the case and the front display ensuring that the neither are scratched or scuffed by dirt when placed on flat surfaces. The buttons have a nice texture to them and don’t make it difficult to access them or press them. The phone does also seem extremely secure which ensures that the phone will not pop out upon impact with hard surfaces.
The only downside to this case’s effectiveness is the protective plastic material. This material can be a little slippery sometimes and i feel that I must grip my phone a little tighter when using it. On the upside, this also makes the case great when trying to slip the phone out of tight pockets or spaces. Noting how protective the case actually is… if you do happen to drop it, the case will most likely leave your phone with no damage whatsoever.
The Urban Armor Gear Samsung Galaxy S4 case is a great alternative to other high-end protective cases and at only $34.95 beats out most of (if not all) competition in its price range. I do recommend this case for any of those who want good protection but don’t want to sacrifice looks, mobility, or ease-of-use.
