    I saw one earlier today at a store, it's all black and it looks quite cool!
    I have to agree. My co-worker has the all black Monarch. Akutch34 also has the all black (she posted a photo earlier in this thread). The Monarch style has definitely changed my view on UAG cases. ...LOL
    The Midnight Monarch is my favorite! It just looks so good on the matte black iPhone.

    The Deadpool "Crimson" one is a very close second!

    Well I almost agree with you...LOL. The "Deadpool" Crimson is my favorite, with the Midnight Monarch a very close second (LOL).

    I love the red one. Have never felt the Monarch, but it looks like a very nice case, and I think the materials would be great in the hand. Even the Plasma cases feel great, but add the leather to the mix, and it would only get better.

    How easy is it to get a 7 Plus out of the Monarch case?

    I've used UAG cases on all my phones the last few years, but the plasma case is really hard to get off of my 7 Plus. I feel like I'm going to bend the phone or break one of the side buttons. It seems like they used hardened plastic instead of rubber on the sides this time so it has no give like previous UAG cases.

    It's about as easy as any one piece case. I peel from the bottom two corners at the same time to remove all cases. This seems to work best for me.

    Maybe I should try that. I've been going from the top to bottom. I've never had trouble getting a one piece case off before.

    The Plasma does seem hard to get off, and like you I did have some reservations about doing so. I only took it off once or twice though and it was still relatively new. I wonder if over time it would be a little easier. The one on my Surface Pro 3 is still very tight though after almost two years, so probably not.

    I've probably taken it off ten times in the past three months and nothing has broken yet. It toggles the mute button every time though. Worried it will snap it off sometime in the future. Seems like the sides will stay permanently tight being they are hard plastic and the hard plastic wraps around the screen edges. That is where it gets stuck on mine. I thought maybe UAG did this to prevent phones from bending in pockets. Who knows. Just not my experience with other UAG cases. My LG G4 had a thicker leather battery cover and I had no trouble taking my UAG case off of that one.

    I'm not sure I like the minor tweaks UAG is making on their cases. I really liked the gaps in the raised screen lip allowing you to swipe from edge to edge. They seemed to have dropped that feature

    I also have this issue with the Plasma. It keeps me from wearing it more because of the fight to get it off.

    The Monarch is completely different. It is no where near as rigid so it is much easier to install/remove. Phone pops right out of the Monarch.

    Good to know. I'll try to find the matte black Monarch (hopefully for less than the asking price). Do the rubber sides on the Monarch have the same feel of the rubber bumpers on the Plasma? I like how the Plasma is designed so your hand mainly touches the hard plastic and not the rubber.

    After a couple of days with the UAG Monarch Crimson (Deadpool), I find the weight of the case to be surprisingly light for five layers of protection. It just feels right in the hand. Its well balanced and adds just the right amount of bulk for ...IMHO a to slim iPhone, yet it gives the security of protection. The grip is a welcomed addition from my normal Apple () Leather cases as well as my Otterbox Commuter (very slippery). Thanks to the OP for starting this UAG thread it has changed my views on UAG cases.

    Interesting. Are you sure they was UAG "Monarch" cases? I saw a couple of their different models for about an average of $25, but the Monarch averaged more.

    I'm actually trying to find the one you have. The Midnight Black Monarch has the UAG letters in Silver and I want the Black/Black Monarch which has the UAG lettering in BLACK....small thing but important to ME....LOL

    Only BestBuy online has this, or at least I can't find it anywhere else.

    Yes! I had trouble finding the all black too. Best Buy was the only place to get it. Mine does have the black UAG
