    Is the Otterbox as heavy as the Swarovski?
    They're comparable yes. Swarovski feels heavier. The otterbox feels solid. I'm still getting used to the Swarovski

    Blacked out Monarch case is absolutely one of the finest looking cases for the matte black iPhone 7 Plus.
    I have over 30 different cases and this one rules them all in the looks department.
    The only downside, I can see some orange peel in the black finish which leads me to believe UAG just sprayed a finish over old Monarch frames.
    Anyone see a slight orange peel in their finish?

    Still one sharp looking case though.

    Come on everyone and their Mother is getting this case. You need one also.

    I'm not cased out, I'm cashed out.

    I was never one to follow. Besides, I'm not much of a black case guy. The case is how I get my added color. I'm also not buying anything case related until what I have coming gets here.

    So I bought a Black Leather Case, the Midnight Monarch, and an Apple Charging dock, total was $130.

    Is it the weight? Otterbox is definitely easier to hold. The crystals are inlaid versus laid on top. It's more comfortable for me

    Oh my, forget the jack hole, the Monarch is much lighter than anticipated and the buttons are nice. There will be a review for the Midnight Monarch.

    None on mine, but I do notice the greasy fingerprints on the back of the case.

    I think I could get used to the weight but would prefer that the crystals were inlaid.

    You wish ha ha. I looked at my receipt, I guess buying the black leather case and the black charging dock resulted in a bundle discount that lowered their prices. My Monarch was only $45 too, I think I got a 5% discount from my Best Buy Rewards, I saved $40 buying all together. Unintentional great purchase.

    Side note, put my leather case on for a moment. It's much better than the storm grey I used to have.

    Ugh. I'm jealous. I don't even go near Best But anymore. It's a giant blue trap.

    Next purchase will probably be a dock for my phone and watch.

    So, I've never owned an UAG case. Have to say I'm definitely impressed. Before purchase, I was unaware that the insets are leather. Very neat. Hey, @blaine07, finally found something to get me out of the nüüd lol.

    I would agree with @metllicamilitia, this case is MUCH lighter than expected. Also, having just come out of the LP nüüd, this case is definitely a dream to hold onto.

    As for @felloffthetruck: I don't see an orange peel on my finish, but will watch and let you know.

    Last point, also agree with @Retinella, this case is a greasy fingerprint magnet!
