Today I am reviewing the Monarch case by Urban Armor Gear for the Samsung Galaxy S8.
I have used several cases on my Galaxy S8+, as well as several on my iPhone 7+. While my Trooper case for iPhone has broken and had to be replaced at least 5 times, and I had a less-than-stellar experience with the Rogue Folio case so I wouldn’t suggest those. This one, however, I love and have not had any problems.
UAG claims it has five layers of protection. Most cases that have two or more layers, but you have to attach every layer and it’s tedious. With the Monarch case, it’s all one piece–just snap it on your phone and it’s ready to go.
For one of my other jobs I am outdoors almost all day and let’s just say I’ve dropped my phones a lot. Gravity has won many battles with my Galaxy S8+, but thanks to the Monarch case it does not have a single scratch or dent.
UAG is so confident in the Monarch case that it has a 10-year warranty. Most of the other UAG cases have a standard one-year warranty. Their warranty process–if you ever need to use it–is quick and simple.
The only complaint I have is that this case only comes in one color. My wife and I have trouble sometimes telling whose phone is whose because we have identical cases.
Overall, I am really impressed. I give this case a 9 out of 10.
