UAG delivers the protection the Galaxy S22 deserves
With each new generation of smartphones comes a new claim of durability. Whether it’s the impact-resistant glass or a new metal frame, manufacturers are always trying to show off their strength. However, the truth tends to come out when you inevitably drop your phone for the first time. Maybe it’s a dent, or maybe it’s a scratch, but either way, you know the feeling.
Sure, you can promise to be careful, but you shouldn’t really need to tiptoe around a device on which you might have spent $1,000.

That’s where UAG comes in. For the past 10 years, UAG has been making cases able to withstand the rigors of an active lifestyle for phones, tablets, and laptops.
We’re not just talking about thick, bulky cases, either. UAG has dipped into its rich history of bold aesthetics and superior protection to bring the best of both worlds to Samsung’s new flagships.
The Monarch is UAG’s flagship among protective cases, with a regal name to match. It blends a durable exoskeleton with a shock-absorbing frame to withstand up to 20-foot drops. All told, the Monarch combines five layers of protection, and now UAG has a new wrinkle for the Galaxy S22 series — Kevlar.
In addition to upgraded protection, the Galaxy S22 series’ UAG Monarch case sports a redesigned aesthetic. It’s refined with subtle red hits and protection worthy of the Kevlar name.
For those looking at a slightly different style, UAG also offers Monarch in Carbon Fiber.
UAG’s original Pathfinder case also makes a triumphant return for the Galaxy S22 series. It may not have Kevlar’s toughness, but it boasts co-molded TPU and polycarbonate, 16 feet of drop protection, and an extremely lightweight package with an approachable price tag.
What about aesthetics?
With the amount of time and effort Samsung poured into designing its Galaxy S22 series, you might be looking for a chance to show off. After all, those new color options are pretty sweet. That’s where the UAG Plyo comes in — it offers crystal clear views without skimping on protection.
The Plyo uses a polycarbonate backplate to keep scratches at bay while the TPU frame absorbs shocks without issue. UAG’s Airsoft corners add a little more cushion to high-impact areas and ensure up to 16 feet of drop protection.
UAG’s brand-new Lucent case offers another stylish option that keeps the bulk to a minimum. It relies on a high-gloss TPU construction in three transparent finishes to give you the right mix of style and security. You can choose from Ice, Clay, or Cerulean for a little more custom color on your Galaxy S22 device.
Why not both?
Some users want protection, while others want style, but UAG has an option for customers who want some of each. Its top-selling Civilian case is now even tougher without layering extra bulk on top.
UAG found a way to bring its HyperCush impact protection system, a polycarbonate shell, and shock-absorbing TPU panels together for 20 feet of impact resistance. The internal hex cushioning helps to spread the force of the impact across the entire case rather than confine it to a corner or an edge. Best of all, UAG’s classic colors are back — you can try black, Mallard, or Olive Drab for your Galaxy S22 device.
