Despite the thickness of the Metropolis case, the ports are very large and adequate for plugging in power, headphones, and so on.

The vault-like door on the back is snapped tight when closed — it takes quite a bit of effort to open it, which can be a bit embarrassing in the checkout line.
All the fancy layers that UAG lists out also increase the weight of the case as it sits around 54 g with the average case being around 39 g.

Review Summaries
he UAG Metropolis case for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro seems rugged enough for travel in a car or truck, but I wouldn’t use it in a situation where it would it could be exposed to real falls onto rocks, dusty air, or water.
The Urban Armor Gear (UAG) Monarch is a big, fancy case. And it is suppose to be tough. Fancy and tough. Seems like an odd combination but Urban Armor Gear makes it work. Visually, the stand out feature for the Monarch is the back.
The Urban Armor Gear Trooper case takes great pains to secure three to four plastic cards (and a bit of cash) in its roomy interior and provides a locking door that acts like a mini safe — nothing’s gonna fall out of this wallet case.
There are six Urban Armor Gear models, in various colors, available for the Apple iPhone X. It offers drop protection and integration of leather and metal hardware in the case. The side honeycomb traction grip looks great and makes it easy to hold onto your Apple iPhone X, which is a very slippery device by itself. The UAG Monarch series case is available for just $59.95 in Graphite, Platinum, Crimson, Black, and Carbon Fiber. If you are loking for solid drop protection in a case that doesn’t add much in size, weight, or looks then the Pylo may be what you are looking for.
UAG is so confident in the Monarch case that it has a 10-year warranty. Most of the other UAG cases have a standard one-year warranty. Their warranty process–if you ever need to use it–is quick and simple.
Even though some cases provide protection for Apple’s iPad, there are very few that are designed to accommodate the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. UAG has done a great job of creating a functional, stylish case the offers superior protection for any type of environment.
Don’t put price above protection when it comes to your iPhone X. Your new phone needs protection that the UAG Monarch case offers and that might save you up to $549 in repair fees down the line. The Monarch Series case costs $59.99 and is a fantastic investment for anyone who is rough on their devices.
The design of the UAG case for Surface Book is impressive. Everything is aligned perfectly with the ports, camera and venting, with no apparent miscalculations during design.
These aren’t cases for the style-conscious: they look and feel basic. But they probably are the cases to you if you are either habitually clumsy, or going to be using your iPhone or iPad in conditions where a drop is more likely – perhaps while running, cycling or similar.
Heavy, difficult to open and even more difficult to remove from your laptop, the Urban Armor Gear Rugged Case for the third- and fourth-generation MacBook Pro won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. But for clumsy laptop users or those who routinely take their laptops into harm’s way, it could well be a necessity.
The Plasma Series brings elements that we are used to from UAG, such as three-layer construction and military spec drop protection, but it also features a slim and light profile that almost seems at odds with this level of protection. The Plasma Series also shakes things up even more with a translucent back that shows off the look of the iPhone in a way that few cases that tout superior drop protection can match.
