Protect your investment with a case from UAG.

We all want to protect our investments — no matter what kind they are. If you are someone who likes working in the stock market, you want to make sure your financial investments are being looked after. If you just bought a car, you want it to be properly insured so that your investment in that vehicle is covered. Well, I think of protective cases on phones in the same respect. I consider storing a phone in a case as a form of insurance that daily use of that product isn’t going to be a problem. There are lots of different styles and manufacturers of cases, but one of the ones I always turn to is UAG. They make some extraordinary case designs that not only protect smartphones but also look good doing it. Over the past few years, I’ve always had at least one UAG case in my case rotation for my iPhone and this year is no exception. Right now, the Metropolis LT is protecting my iPhone 12 Pro as my daily-driver case. Today, I’m going to look at the Civilian Series and Monarch Series cases for the iPhone 12 mini.

CIVILIAN SERIES CASE

The Civilian Series case is designed to absorb and dampen impacts when they happen to that the phone is protected from that type of damage. The case acts as a cushion. It has a thin profile and features two shock-absorbing materials. The case is friction-free and because it is lint-resistant, it will slide in and out of pockets quite easily. There are a few color choices — Black, Slate, and Olive Drab. Because of its low profile, the case is compatible with both Apple Pay and wireless charging and it meets military drop-test standards (MIL-STD 810G 516.6).

The case is surprisingly lightweight and it fits the iPhone 12 Mini really well. The style is sleek and clean. The Olive Drab color is the one I had to test out. It’s an army green color on the exterior with orange as the interior highlight…
