Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Griffin Survivor Black/Black for New iPhone 5 Military-Duty Case & Belt Clip (Wireless Phone Accessory)
If you want a chic, elegant and sophisticated iPhone case...don't look here! It's got to be said that this kills the phone's looks, at least in my opinion. Quite a few people have laughed at my phone, asking, "What on earth is THAT?"
However, many may see this as one of its advantages! And even if you'd prefer something slicker, if your phones tend to take a bashing you might well find that the cosmetics are well-and-truly outweighed by the benefits. It's hard to imagine any practical case that would be more likely to prevent damage from impact or water ingress. It's a really carefully designed product.
All of this does make it a bit hard to slip the phone in and out of the Survivor - I don't know about military-grade protection, it requires military planning just to extract it! The case is in four bits, each of which have to be prised away.
In summary, if looks matter much, go elsewhere; if your phone matters, this is the one. For me, it's perfect.
