UAG Galaxy Note 8 Plasma Review

All my Samsung smartphones are equipped with Urban Armor Gear case. Same apply to my latest addition – Galaxy Note 8. Yes, UAG Plasma Series Case is the star today. It has feather-light composite construction yet able to provide protection that meet military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6). And loaded with armor shell and impact resistant soft core. Sound great? Let’s find out in details…

Package Content & Design
UAG Plasma Series Case for Galaxy Note 8 comes in a stylish packaging. There is UAG case only. All the information are located at back of the packaging. Plasma Series has 3 layers of protection – armor shell, shock cushions and impact resistant rubber. Weight at 35g by the way. There are 4 colours to choose for Plasma Series – Ice, Ash, Cobalt and Citron. Mine is Ice by the way. Build quality is top notch as expected from UAG. Furthermore, it has really nice outlook that match Galaxy Note 8 perfectly.

Performance Result
Rugged, lightweight and drop-test protection are what you will get from UAG Plasma Series. Stylish, slim and does not have the bulky look. Nice to hold as well thanks to non-slip ruggedized grip. And the front design does not block you from access the curved screen.

Correct and large opening for every ports including the microphone on top.

High soft raised rubber screen-lip (top and bottom parts) to protect Galaxy Note 8 curved screen. Note – Curved screen sides are not covered as expected else you can’t touch them.

Plenty of protections for camera lens, flash, HR and fingerprint scanner.

Oversized tactile buttons that easy to access.

I love the large opening for ports. No issue to plug in large USB-C card reader here. Well done, UAG! And rest assures that the back cover is compatible with Samsung Pay and Samsung Fast Wireless Charging.

Yeah… Large open for 3.5mm jack as well. And easy to pull out S Pen like there is no case at all.

For your information, I am not a screen / tempered glass protector guy. So not sure this UAG Plasma Series work with that or not. Do take note…
