Ultimate Tech Defence with UAG

The smarter they are, the more fragile they become. That’s what seems to be the case with the latest gadgets and gizmos around, which screams for that added protection to keep them functional.

We’ve seen a few phone cases, but not many that provide protective cases for almost every device out in the market. UAG which is short for Urban armour Gear have been around for a while now, providing some intense protective hardware to ensure your gadgets remain safe.

UAG deliver to you an array of cases with their 810G-516.6 military grade seal of approval. And by military grade we find, means a tested drop & shock standard from 4ft high. When you look at the build quality of the UAG cases, you can see the effort and build that’s gone into each product.


Metropolis Series for Microsoft Surface

My Surface Pro is my baby and the most portable way for me to keep computing and editing when I’m on the go. And like I said earlier with any tech, it is as fragile as a new-born baby. This UAG Metropolis series case was a blessing.

Metropolis features:

  • Impact resistant soft core & tactile grip
  • Built in Surface Pen storage and magnetic holder compatibility
  • Compatible with Microsoft Type Cover Keyboard and multiple keyboard positions
  • Aluminium stand with 5 angular positions plus portrait viewing option
  • Un-compromised audio and access to touchscreen, buttons, and ports
  • Meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6) when used with Microsoft Type Cover keyboard


Monarch Series for the IPhone and Huawei Mate 20 Pro

We’ve seen champagne glasses survive impacts better than an IPhone does and this is no exaggeration. Apple knew exactly what they were doing when they built them, as well as how much incremental revenue it would bring them.

Huawei devices are slightly more tough in comparison, but gentle in the wrong environments at the same time. Sadly for the average consumer this is very costly in the long run, but the UAG monarch series for both Iphone and the Mate 20 Pro is the knight in shining armour (literally).

Monarch Features:

  • Handcrafted, feather light construction with 5 layers of protection
  • Top grain leather and alloy metal hardware
  • Soft impact-resistant core & honeycomb traction grip
  • Oversized tactile buttons & protective screen surround
  • Apple Pay compatible
  • Wireless charging compatible (this only seems to work on iPhone, not Huawei)
  • Meets 2X Military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6)
  • 10-Year Limited Warranty


A good Defence is a great offence, against the many risks to our technology. And for that reason alone I’m chuffed to join the UAG crew. As I mentioned above in the specs, be mindful of wireless charging. It works on the IPhone which is great, but our case for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro did not. Let us know if you see the same.
