The Urban Armor Gear Valkyrie case for the iPhone 6 Plus is an absolutely awesome case. I was a little dubious before I received it—I was worried that the case would be too slippery, and that the pink color would look odd—but I was quite wrong on both counts. The pink of the Valkyrie case is a particularly attractive shade of pink and the case is saved from slipperiness by the rubbery grip areas scattered about the case. The case itself is a one-part composite case of polycarbonate and TPU. The TPU lines a large part of the interior of the case, as well as textured bands on the sides of the case for extra grip. It is reasonably easy to get on and off your phone, and as the sides of the case are lined with TPU rubber, it will not scratch your phone. Once on the device, the UAG Valkyrie fits snugly and looks great. The buttons are all easy to press and responsive. It is a pleasure to use.
1. Great fit and finish
2. 4 ft drop protection
3. Nice tactile buttons
4. Pink color looks great
5. Thin form factor
1. Lightning port opening may not fit all third party lightning cables
2. Mystery holes on the back can potentially introduce dust into the case.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a fantastic case. I really like the way it looks and feels on my iPhone 6 Plus. It would be better if it were a little bit grippier, but that’s just my personal preference.
The Urban Armor Gear Valkyrie Case for iPhone 6 Plus retails for $39.95 and can be purchased directly from UAG, as well as on Amazon and at other retailers:
