5.0 out of 5 stars GUMDROP V GRIFFIN 11 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Both cases offer fantastic protection, I have used both in the time I have owned my iPhone 4S.

They both have pros and cons, neither is perfect but they do what they say on the tin.

My personal preference is the Gumdrop case but it is a very close run thing. I have reviewed the Griffin case and gave it full marks but I find this one, the Gumdrop more usable.

1. The screen area is larger so you don't tend to bump up against the edge of the screen protector rim so much. It makes navigating the screen so much better.
2. The home button is more recessed on the Gumdrop whereas on the Griffin it protrudes and it is easy to accidentally press it in your pocket.
3. The Gumdrop has less bulk and fits into your pocket better.
4. The quality of the silicon is better, it feels harder and less likely to open the port covers by accident.
5. The camera lens is not covered making it easier to take those 'just happening' photos. It is also protected by a raised plastic flange.

The Griffin outscores this Gumdrop in that although it is not entirely waterproof,it has a lens protecting flap and has a slightly better built in screen protector. The Gumdrop screen protector may show what is commonly called oil slicking where the screen protector is not entirely flush with the phone screen. The Griffin screen protector sits away from the screen so there is a bit of noticeable give when you touch the screen.

Either or, it doesn't really matter if you want best protection for your investment however there are always compromises to be made. For me this one is more pocketable and doesn't detract from the usability of the phone in any way. Also, a point to note is that the Gumdrop for the iPad is exceptionally good, except for the screen protector, its what I use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and protective, but hard to get on. 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I found that this case was very protective, and also looked quite nice on. It doesn't seem to ruin the look of the iPhone, and it is also good because you can get it in a range of colours, to meet everyone's taste. However, I did find it quite tricky to get the iPhone in and out. It is fairly easy to get the phone in, but the main difficulty is getting it out, as I almost broke my phone in trying to do so the first time. After a few tries at getting the phone out, I managed to find a way of getting it out safely, but it did take about 5 minutes to do. I am altogether pleased with the product, even with some difficulty in getting the phone in and out. I would recommend this item.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really impressive Relatively Slimline Case 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Looked at numerous case reviews for Iphone 4 before settling on the Gumdrop! We needed something that would not be too bulky to fit in a jacket or leg pocket of a pair of work trousers and especially something which could easily be extracted when it rang. Having sized up other Ballistic cases and narrowed down our particular needs (ie not really necessary for it to be completely water tight, have an exterior clip, etc.) and taking into account that the cost of the Gumdrop was reasonable given that it might turn out to be totally unsuitable, we made our decision.

There is a good range of combination colours available for this model, however as our iphone already has a white face we opted for plain black.
it's a very good case! It has a soft silky feel, but adequately sturdy for any accidental falls from at least head height (haven't dared to try any higher). The cover fits snugly over the phone covering the home key volume buttons, on/off button, as well as the charging port, headphone jack and mute button, the latter three accessible via pull down flaps. The rear camera, microphones, etc are uncovered in this model hence it is not classified as waterproof, but unless you are standing in a downpour of rain i would say that it is weatherproof to a degree. The rigid screen protector is amazingly responsive and snugly fits inside the cover right on top of the iphone screen. We left our original flexible screen protector in place and you cannot tell that there is both a rigid and flexible one in situ as there is no perceptible difference in the touch screen or clarity. The home key being covered also has not presented any problems.

The outer case is covered in alternating raised tracks, rather like the bottom of some running shoes for rugged terrain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Build quality 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
No complaints.

I actually felt it's not as bulky as the image suggests it to be but expect a bulky case for the kind of protection an all over protective case will provide.

The case does not interfere with the sensitivity of the touch screen.

Item arrived really quickly.

Very happy with purchase.
