    I have been looking at the Urban Armor Gear cases and I want to get one for my iPhone 6S. Someone here has an experience with this case?

    It looks very strong and like it might provide very good protection for the device and this is what I'm mainly looking for, apart from the fact that this case looks very good, especially this ice color

    I have the same one, just for 6s Plus. One friend of mine has the same one for his iphone 6. His iphone was saved from being damaged around 5 drops. Mine was saved just once though.

    My review on amazon:

    In Short : Protects the iPhone from disasters perfectly.

    Me and my friend are using this case for over a month now, and can vouch that this case safeguards from accidental drops. Have been dropped 3 times from over 3 feet height (yes face down too), no scratch or defect on the phone.

    In detail :
    Pros:
    1. Gives all around protection, each corner is well protected, so even if you drop it will cushion it.
    2. Has good elevated lip in the front, so you can easily keep the phone upside down without the fear of scratching the screen.
    3. Lightning port and the 3.5mm input are quite easily accessible and you don't have to fumble to attach.
    4. Quite sturdy to hold and the grip is quite good, gives you a masculine feeling, just my thoughts though.
    5. Buttons though won't be exactly like the caseless iphone, but believe me I have used few other cases, its quite good and the tactile feedback is wonderful.
    6. Transparent back show the phone's true color and the apple logo a bit.
    7. Does not add to the phone's bulk much, it cannot be called slim, but its definitely not monstrously big, like the otterbox defender cases.

    Cons:
    1. 2 Holes in the back lets in dust, which needs to be cleaned off from time to time. As far as I understood, the hole makes it easier to hold the phone while in a call, but still it could have been just a carve
    2. For the latest 6s which have 3d touch, sometimes its tougher to do a 3d touch based multi tasking gesture due to the elevated front lips, I guess they couldn't have helped this, but still its a gripe which could have been avoided by giving a small curve in the middle.
    3. Tougher to open on a 6s plus.

    Final words: If you really want to protect your precious iphone, you need to get a case like this.​

    I have this one in cobalt blue in my case rotation. It's pretty good. I like it.

    I understand wanting someone else's opinion about a product, but do you not know which colors you, yourself, prefer?
