URBAN ARMOR GEAR Case for iPhone 6 (4.7 Display) Blue Customer Reviews
Great case…very sturdy. Fits perfectly. I like that it is one piece you don’t have to mess around with that. Reinforced on the corners, nice raised lip protects the front screen from drops. Comes with clear screen protector and cleaning cloth as well. Fits perfectly – everything lines up spot-on. It goes on pretty easily but snaps very security into place with a nice snug fit. The volume and power buttons are covered with raises switches that actually make it easier to use those buttons. No problem getting to the mute switch which remains exposed but in a recess. Well designed cutout for the camera and flash that will not impact flash performance….and the case is deep enough that the raised camera lens on the iPhone 6 is nullified and the case will sit flat. Cutouts for speaker, mic, headphones, power are all perfect. The case is easy to grip and feels very secure when you hold it….another big plus in my view. There are two small open spaces on the back (but well protected) that I am guessing are to allow some heat to escape. All this but the case does NOT look or feel thick and bulky. It’s light and maintains the slim profile of the iPhone 6. All in all I am way more impressed with this case than I expected. It makes me feel very confident that it would protect extremely well if a drop – and the case is tested to military spec for protection. The only caution I will give you is that the styling is a bit military/futuristic so be sure you are okay with the look.
Your Hot Buttons…Measured and ReportedTOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE (By C. MacPhail)
If you’re picky about iPhone cases, here are the facts for this one.
– - – Summary – - -
This case functions almost perfectly.
If you like rubbery, grippy edges, this is not quite it.
The all-important raised lip on the screen side: Pretty good. Over 1/16″ on the ends; Almost 1/16″ on the edges. I’m talking about the height of the lip above the screen glass. This is where many other cases invite tragedy.
The beefed-up corner protection makes sense. If you’re OK with the style and price, this could be your 5-star case right here.

► Overall Fit: Perfect
► Buttons: Zero problems
► Cut-outs — Lightning and Audio: Nice and large. I tried all my over-sized 3rd party cables. They all worked except for one fat-ended audio cable that has no “neck.” One very rude Lightning cable flexed the case a bit, but it snapped in fully with no problem. Lightning cut-out is 6.6mm x 13.1mm (.260″ x .517″). Audio cut-out is 7.7mm diameter. #inches #dimensions #cutouts
► Cut-outs — Camera, Switch, Speaker: Zero problems.
► Screen-side Lip: This matters if you don’t want a scratched screen. Eventually, you’re going to drop your phone on a rough surface (parking lot, for example). I see a lot of cases with less than 1mm of raised lip. These are not going to cut it. This case’s 1.4mm to 1.65mm lip (sides vs ends) might save you.
► Overall thickness: 12mm at the corners. 10.9mm along the sides. I wish they had thinned out the back of this case (you don’t need as much protection there) and made the front lip even bigger.
► Weight: 31 grams (1-1/8 oz). Adds 24% to your iPhone weight.
► Grippiness: If you like rubbery, grippy edges, this is not quite it. But the case is not glossy or slippery, and the nubs 1-1/2″ up from the bottom are helpful.

Stop searching, you found perfection! (By stack)
In all honesty, I am not sure how this case could be designed any better, period!
Ergonomics – The size is great. I was worried about the iphone 6 not fitting in my pocket with a good case attached but this urban armor case has an incredibly thin profile. It feels great in my hand and is very comfortable. I love that I can still use Apple’s forward/backward swiping gestures in safari and other applications with this case on. I cant tell you how many case designers do not even consider the user wanting to use the edges of their screen.
Durability – Honestly, I thought this case would be more soft like silicon but it is very rigid, almost like plastic. Even though it feels like a tough plastic it still retains incredible flexibility and is easy to remove and install the phone. I am convinced this case will protect my phone through almost any trauma.
Value – This is where Urban Armor gets that elusive 5th star. After holding this case, installing my phone, wearing it in my pocket and using my phone on a daily basis I am incredibly happy and it is so hard to believe that my transaction was under 40 dollars. I chose not to use the screen protector but it is included, as is a micro fiber cloth and the box is very attractive as well. Impressive that all this is included for such a low price.
This is a home run case. Buy it and love it! Very pleased that the white case was available through prime at my time of purchase!!!
Simply none better (By MGM al)
Genuine UAG cases are the best for maximum drop protection, great grip and minimum bulk. My wife and I have carried these all over the world and never a crack or scratch to either iPhone or Galaxy. Far less bulk than Ott*****.
iPhone 6 Plus Cases – Maverick and FolioTOP 50 REVIEWER (By Daniel G. Lebryk)
Urban Armor Gear Maverick case for the iPhone 6 Plus is a solution to the fear of bending that shiny new phone. That video of the guy bending a 6 Plus made me afraid of folding my phone in half. This case adds a lot of rigidity to keep the phone from bending. The combination of the back and side rails makes the phone a lot more rigid.
The Urban Armor Gear Folio case is a totally different beast. If you like the idea of a flap to cover your phone and don’t mind more thickness and weight – this is an outstanding case. The whole body surround is rubber with a ton of cushion for the phone. The back is super rigid, and also helps to prevent the phone from bending. The phone slips in easily into the rubber nest. The flap has super soft velvet on the inside and a magnetic strap to hold it closed. The deep red is simply gorgeous. The flap cover has a slot for money and credit cards. As with every flap cover phone case, folding the thing around behind the phone to talk is not a lot of fun. If you don’t mind the hanging flap, this is a dynamite case.
The Maverick case (the rest of the review is about the Maverick case) in a solid color would look more military – if that’s the look you like, get any of the solid color cases. I like the clear version, it disappears a bit more on the phone.
The key to this thing are the side panels – they are super strong plastic that has ridges built into them so it adds structure to the phone. The back has raised ribs that also help.
The case weighs next to nothing – so it doesn’t add much weight to the phone. It is slim enough that it doesn’t mess up the form factor. The rubber bumpers on the side give me something to grab on to while I hold or use the phone. It all makes it easier to use the phone.
I like the rubber on top and corners to help prevent glass cracking if I drop the phone. The front edge is raised so if you drop the phone face first, it is harder to crack the screen.
The case comes with a screen protector. The protector is like every other one made – they take a lot of care to apply without bubbles.
1) Clean the screen – I like to use CD cleaner for my screens.
2) Clean the screen again.
3) Wash your hands and dust the area where you will work – wipe it up really well.
4) With a bright light aimed at the screen, use the included microfiber towel to wipe the screen of every single white dot you see.
5) Inspect the screen again looking for white dots – wipe them all off.
6) Apply the protector – remove the #1 tab half way. Start at the top edge and roll the protector down. If you see a bubble, lift up and try again. If the protector isn’t aligned perfectly, lift up and adjust at the top.
7) If you cleaned everything just right, there will be no bubbles. If you notice a white spot inside a bubble – too bad, the protector will have that bubble forever. There is no way to remove dust after the protector has touched them.
Virtually every screen protector is like this – they require perfect cleaning before you apply them (Zagg is a notable exception, except I hate their gummy bear feeling protectors).
This is an outstanding case that will protect a 6 Plus from the bends.
