If you've seen my review of the regular Urban Armor Gear case you know that I'm a huge fan of how rugged it is while still being very thin and light. I always assumed that the folio version was the same just with an added front cover to store a few credit cards. But when I saw UAG drop this case from the window of a Porsche going 120mph, I knew I needed to get my hands on this beast. And given how rugged it is, I knew my standard 4ft drop test wasn't going to cut it.
UAG was kind enough to send me this folio case for review, and although they weren't able to send me their Porsche 911 Turbo S, I did manage to construct this crude catapult. And as far as I know, this is the Internet's first catapult iPhone case drop test.
I did this catapult test twice while recording from many different angles including from the iPhone 6 itself. Hopefully this shows how confident I am in this cases ability to withstand drops from much higher than what you'll encounter in normal daily use.
The corner skid pads definitely did their job. Two of the corners received some scratches and the inside corner was slightly scratched when the case flopped open. Most of this wiped off though. The rest of the case was mostly unharmed which is pretty amazing considering how high it flew. The iPhone was well protected and still works great.
