Can UAG actually protect your phone screen from cracking?

    I just saw some UAG drop test reviews from this guy, and it is very interesting that he provided two very extreme different options in two reviews:

    In this video, even he tried 8 feets he claimed there is no crack:


    But then in this video, he didn't even do a face drop test because he claims it would break the screen anyway so he wanted to save some money:


    Isn't this very interesting ha ha? I have no idea is his doing marketing for UAG or he is actually against UAG for some reason ha ha.

    In my understanding, flat face first drops will break phones where back drops or corner drops from a similar height will not. I think the UAG cases are certified to meet the basic mil-spec drop standards, which are for a 4 ft drop...

    But why would he want to do something which had a good chance of breaking his phone? That's rather expensive...

    Because all those phone reviewers have already bought Apple Care or other third party protection service, for them they just always get back a new one after testing. Beside, as I said above he didn't test a 8 feets and claimed it didn't break it, but then he didn't even try 4 feets for basically the same design case later, I seriously doubt just because he didn't receive "money gift" later so he wouldn't do that to imply it couldn't protect the screen anyway so better don't buy this.

    I'm not entirely sure I understand all of your post, but there are a lot of smaller reviewers out there, myself included, that may have AppleCare on their phones, but prefer to not break them and have to pay a $79 deductible to get them fixed. There are some reviewers out there that must be making serious money off of their reviews, but there are a lot of smaller folks that aren't...

    The whole point of a review of a phone case is mainly about how well can it protect the phone, not even do the most important part of the test miss that whole meaning of it.
