Having recently purchased a new Galaxy Note II, the Ionic Guardian is the closest match to the tough cases produced by Griffin for the iPad.
+ Snug fit with a small lip around the phone's front fascia, keeps the phone well protected
+ Cutouts are very well done, easy to access various ports & stylus
+ Volume & Screen Lock buttons are covered with the silicone but still very easy to use.
+ Light, comes in two pieces, a plastic shell & a silicone insole, that fit together to form the case
- Would not put it through the testing done on the Griffin Armor case
I have already dropped my phone several times from desk/waist height and seen it bounce on the cases corner before coming to a stand still. You can't but wince however the phone has survived intact on each occassion, so far, mainly thanks to the case.
All said & done therefore, I am pleased with the case's performance & glad for the purchase.
