valkyrie {urban armor gear review}

I have a tendency to choose iPhone cases for purely aesthetic reasons {i.e. a super cute illustration or fun shape}. While these clearly make my wardrobe happy; they oftentimes don't provide the type of protection that something as valuable {and can't-live-without} as an iPhone requires. Enter Urban Armor Gear {UAG for the initiated}.

I was super excited to receive an e-mail from UAG with an offer to review one of their cases. And, once I viewed their ultimate drop test from space video, I was fairly convinced that their iPhone cases would definitely have the strength to survive daily life with moi.

The selection was a no-brainer for me, I picked the Valkyrie iPhone 5s Case {$34.95 USD} in the shade Valkyrie because it was pink {with a few black accents}, and I love it. Seriously though, it has been my one and only for the last three weeks.

Despite the fact that the case has an armor shell and meets military drop-test standards, I find it to be incredibly lightweight {more so than previous cases I have owned}; yet still v sturdy and easily accessible. One thing I did not use is the HD Screen Protector that came with the case. Me and HD Screen Protectors, while I would love to use one, simply do not mesh well. They never lie flat for me, which I find incredibly frustrating.

I am so incredibly happy with this case, and will definitely be purchasing from UAG when I upgrade to an iPhone 6 in a few months. The quality and level of protection is truly amazing - especially considering the pricepoint.


How do you protect your smartphone?

If I had an iphone, I would need a case like this because I tend to drop things. haha I'm glad it's lightweight though too!

Looks like such a great phone cover. I always drop my phone, so I need a versatile cover. And the colour is so pretty.

Love this pink case! Can you believe that I don't have a case for my iPhone? I used to buy them but everytime I would take them off the phone because, for me, iPhone is too pretty to be put into anything. Do I even have to mention how many times it fell from the desks, walls and once even a terrace (I seriously don't know how the poor thing managed to survive the fall)...
