UAG churned out a set of new cases for the newly released Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. One of those is the new Monarch series and it is quite frankly the most good looking rugged case for iPhone 7 and iPhone7 Plus. It is also compatible with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 but it works best with the newer iPhone 7 because of the bigger camera openings. That said, it works just fine with my iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s.
Monarch Series iPhone 7 Case features
* Handcrafted, featherlight construction with 5 layers of protection
* Top grain leather and alloy metal hardware
* Soft impact-resistant core & honeycomb traction grip
* Oversized tactile buttons & protective screen surround
* Meets 2X Military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6)
* 10-Year Limited Warranty
* Case compatible with iPhone 7/6s/6
The iPhone 7 Monarch case has better drop protection than grippier sides so it would not slip out of your hands easily. I also like the fact that the case is easier to install and remove than other UAG cases out there.
The case comes with a 10 year warranty but I doubt you will be using your iPhone for a decade but it does tell the user that the quality of the case is very high. The Monarch case claims to protect your phone twice of typical military drop standard that is four feet.
This means your phone will survive eight feet drop easily. My daughter has already tested throwing that phone with great force onto a concrete floor and both case and iPhone were scratch-less. I am already very impressed!
The phone has protective lip to prevent screen from getting cracked or scratched. The rear has prefect cutout for camera and does not interfere with the flash.
I like the fact that the case does not take away the clicky-ness of the buttons. I really enjoy using it on my iPhone and it is a great investment for my device. Find the entire UAG iPhone 7 collection here.
