    [Case Review] Urban Armor Gear Samsung Galaxy S4 Case




    There are tons of Galaxy S4 Cases out there and it seems like everyone is looking for the perfect one. A case that mixes their personal style that provides decent protection and won't break the bank. Some people like aluminum, others like slim fitting TPU cases and others love real bulky cases like an Otterbox Defender. Well, look no further. Urban Armor Gear, a company based here in California has got the perfect case that provides good protection, stylish looks and the slimness that most are looking for. UAG has been making cases since the iPhone 4S.


    Let's start with the review shall we? Inside the packaging youíll find a crystal clear screen protector, instructions on how to install it, a microfiber cloth and of course the case.




    Urban Armor Gear has 4 different colored cases for the Galaxy S4.

    Aero - dark blue
    Navigator - white
    Outland - dark orange
    Scout - Black

    I purchased the white one off Amazon about a month ago and have stayed on my phone ever since. Even though I have 4 other cases (different brands). UAG was kind enough to send me two other colors though for me to review. (Outland & Scout)








    The design of each case has five mock screws which are hard rubber material with six veins coming out from a circle center which you'll see the UAG logo. Personally, I love the look of this case. The design is very appealing, rugged but still relatively minimal.

    This is a single piece case but is built with two in-built layers. The outer hard armor shell and the internal impact-resistant soft core, which will protect your GS4 with ease. It cradles your Galaxy S4 in such a fashion that you do not feel any damage could be caused to it. The front lip of the case is suffiicient and will protect your screen in case you dropped it face down. The UAG case also features a bezel for the camera cutout to eliminate any washout from the flash in a picture. The home and volume buttons have a great tactile feel to them. The cutouts on the phone are perfect unlike some other cases that have too small of an opening. With the UAG case, you won't have any trouble using any 3rd party micro USB cable or headphones. UAG has really made a great product here.











    This case feel great in hand, holding it feels grippy and nice. The case adds almost no bulk and still brings rugged protection. Urban Armor Gear proves that their case may best thin protective case out there. In short Iím a big fan of the UAG Galaxy S4 case. The case features a unique design, comes in four colors, and even includes a screen protector.

    If youíre someone that requires a decent amount of protection for your Samsung Galaxy S4 but donít feel like bulking it up with a super heavy protective case, this might be a good choice for you. The Urban Armor Gear Galaxy S4 case feels very protective yet slim at the same time. The MSRP on these cases is $34.95.

    I give this case a score of 5 stars - ★★★★★

    Thanks again to Urban Armor Gear for sending out cases for us to review!

    I've got the UAG case for my S3.
    Lightweight but very durable, adds little bulk but gives great protection.
    Can't agree with you, or recommend it, more.... :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Yes, it's thinner than most cases with good protection. I don't find it that slippery. It's got good protection so if it does slip out of your hand, you're covered.

    The shape and the bumpers make it pretty grippy...

    Actually it slipped out of a pair of shorts with abnormally shaped, stupid large pockets while exiting my truck. but either way I'm super lucky I didn't Bork my screen and if I had one of these I wouldn't have damaged my phone.

    Got it from Fast Tech for $1.56 free shipping! https://www.fasttech.com/search?Comp...Holder%20Stand

    Company is in Hong Kong so the shipping took a little over a week. I've ordered tons of stuff from them and no issues whatsoever!
