Urban Armor Gear aka UAG is a well know brand popularly known for making some of the best rugged cases on earth. I was going on a business trip and wanted a rugged case for my iPhone 6s that also protects the front. While there are tons of rugged iPhone 6s cases out there, not many offer coverage for the front of device.
Meet UAG Folio case which offers incredible amount of protection and that includes full button coverage on the back as well as front. It even meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6). There are two colors being offered, black and red color. The folio cover makes use of a magnetic strip to keep the case closed and it works well.
There is significant lip on the front that will protect the screen from getting damaged in case the device falls with the flap opened. The lip protection continues to the back as well and it will definitely protect that nice camera from getting scratched or damaged.
There is also some place to store credit cards and I was able to store two cards easily. UAG says it can store 3 but may be my credit cards were a bit thicker than normal. Nevertheless, I am not complaining. Headphone jack as well as lightning port present at the bottom are accessible from the case and you will not have to take it off. The silent switch is left exposed so that you have no trouble in accessing it.
The Folio case for iPhone adds some bulk as expected but not as much as you would have thought. It adds a lot of protection to your device. The button coverage is excellent and it really helps to keep your iPhone 6s in pristine condition for years to come. The buttons retain click and responsive feel.
Verdict – It is clear that Urban Armor Gear did a lot of thought process when making this folio case. Rugged folio cases for iPhone 6s are a rarity and UAG certainly has a winner in their hands.
