Urban Armor Gear Cases
Urban Armor Gear manufactures some of the most rugged, lightweight, cases that are drop tested to US Military Specs. UAG covers are made for devices and smartphones like the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Samsung, and Huawei smartphones and devices.
UAG cover is certified to a military standard known as MIL-STD-810G 516.6. In this military standard test, the device in UAG cover is dropped from a height of four feet. This is a typical fall height for a device dropped while it is being used. And this drop test is performed on the device a total of 26 times from different angles. The test cover falls into each corner, the face, and back. To pass, the device must remain fully functional afterward, with no damage to the screen.
The Urban Armor cases are very popular especially with high-end devices. UAG for iPhone 11 & UAG for Samsung Galaxy S20 are in high demand as they offer premium protection and durability. So that your expensive smartphones won’t be damaged even with rough use.
Their designs are more industrial-looking than most cover brands but offer a higher degree of protection in return. Urban Armor gear cases are engineered to protect your devices from the rigors of a mobile and active lifestyle and enhance your smartphone or device’s utility.
How to Spot Fake VS Real Urban Armor Gear
Detecting originals from fake copies might seem a little difficult and daunting at first. But with our tips and guide, you will be able to identify a fake from an original in no time. Read on ahead to see what differentiates an original Urban Armor Gear product from a counterfeit one.
One of the main things to look for when trying to identify fake Urban Armor cases from real ones is the small details. Counterfeit covers and cases might be able to copy the overall look of the original, but they will always miss the minor details. Fake ones often miss the look and feel, they have rough edges, and bad texture. Here are some of the detailing faults found in fake cases VS original UAG ones.
- UAG Logo on Original cover and cases is of a brushed aluminum finish, often fake covers will have a shiny chrome reflective finish, this difference is often easily identifiable.
- The screen protector of fake Urban Armor cases is often labeled with red and blue text. Original UAG covers use different colors than red and blue.
- The price of the cover is also a huge red flag, if the Urban Armor cover you are buying is cheaper than its original price, then chances are that it is a cheap counterfeit.
The next most distinctive difference between original and counterfeit UAG products is the packaging. The packaging is one of the most easily identifiable pieces and the first thing that you should be checking if you want to see whether or not your UAG product is original. Here are a few notable factors that one should keep in mind when checking the packaging of an Urban Armor product.
- Often times fake UAG products will have a differently designed box, there can be color variations, size variations, different fonts, or more that can be easily compared with the original packaging.
- When checking the package of UAG cover note the corners of the cutouts that display the cover. Original Urban Armor cases have rounded corners in the packaging, while the fake ones tend to have square corners.
- One of the other notable difference will be the cleaning kit. Which will probably be displayed in the back of the box through the cutout. Original covers will have a properly packed kit as shown in the picture. While fake ones will not, or they will only have a microfiber cloth.
One of the main redflags when purchasing UAG covers is the product’s pricing. Counterfeit UAG covers will be cheaper and more affordable compared to the originals.
- Then there is the barcode, this will be a little tricky to identify but you can also use barcode scanners in your mobile to do so, fake products will have fake barcodes on them instead of actual original ones that lead to correct products and pricing.
- Check pricing of UAG covers online to verify if the vendor is selling the original Urban Armor Gear product or not.
- Only buy from verified official sellers and avoid shady retailers. Never purchase covers off of eBay or Craigslist unless you are 100% sure that the product is authentic.
The Actual Case
Once you have gone through the minor details and packaging of the UAG covers, chances are you will have already detected whether or not your case is original or counterfeit. However, if you are still a little unsure then a thorough look at the actual case will help you determine this with ease.
- On the original UAG case, the screws will be original Torx screws. These will be properly fitted and will have small indentations on them while fake ones will not.
- The cover will often slightly vary in shape, size, finish, and color, you can detect this by comparing it with an original cover.
- One of the most notable differences will be the buttons of the case. I.e. the volume rocker and power button. A counterfeit case will often have buttons that are very hard and tough to operate. Original Urban Armor covers will have buttons that are easy to use. They will not be hard to operate, unlike the fake ones.
- One other notable difference between counterfeit and original UAG are its shockers. For example, note the UAG for iPhone 11 Pro Max pictured below; the plasma case is an original and as you can see an original Urban Armor Gear will have larger shockers than a fake one.
Why Choose Urban Armor Gear Cases
Urban Armor Gear cases aren’t for everyone that’s for sure. They are built for durability, endurance, protection, and rough use. They offer excellent military-grade protection for your devices so that you can use them freely without worry. But if you are looking for something handy or user-friendly, UAG is not the best option.
If style and look are one of your priorities, you should also avoid Urban Armor Gear Cases unless you like sporting a rugged military look on your smartphones. Original UAG covers are also quite expensive compared to other protective cases, but you are getting the bang for your buck in terms of protection and durability. The high price can this way be somewhat justified by the excellent protection that Urban Armor supplies. The amount of protection it offers without turning your device into brick is quite formidable.
Urban Armor Gear protective covers are best if you are looking to keep your smartphone for a long time. They are the best option if you are an outdoor person, fitness freak, or work in extreme conditions. UAG covers will protect your devices from the worst of drops, smashes, and crashes.
