Review: Urban Armor Gear (UAG) The Scout iPhone case
Following on from our previous Urban Armor Gear iPhone case review, we bring you The Scout from Urban Armor Gear. It’s another iPhone 6 case, though this time with an open-faced design. The Scout shares some of the Folio’s features, such as the impact-resistant Honeycomb design. Let’s take a closer look…
The Scout is a much simpler design than the Folio, and one that will be more traditional to most people, especially blokes. There’s no folding or flipping here, just a durable case that you clip your phone into.
The Scout is made from a unique impact-resistant composite material – meaning the case is light, but can still take its fair share of bumps. Looking to the inside of the case we see the same honeycomb design as the Folio, adding to the phone’s impact-resistance. Once again, this case has undergone military-grade testing, though only for drops and impacts – avoid tornadoes if you can.
The case also features oversize tactile buttons. If there’s one thing that bothers me about other phone cases, it’s when the case has miniscule buttons, and you have to strain your thumb and fingers just to turn the volume on a call up or down – these handy buttons eliminate that.
As the Scout is an open-face case, it comes with a screen protector. While still super-thin like most screen protectors, UAG’s approach to screen protectors feels just that little bit thicker, though it doesn’t hinder your device’s touch screen in the slightest.
Just like the Folio, the Scout has precision cuts in the case, so that your phone’s flash and speakers function just as well as they would outside of the case.
