The iPhone is a beautiful, sleek and elegant piece of technology, but why do they make it out of glass?
Glass, for heaven's sake. It is an accident waiting to happen. I know at least three people who managed to crack either the front or the back, or both sides of their iPhone. Protection is essential.
The Griffin Survivor is neither beautiful, nor elegant and it is certainly not sleek. It makes my phone about three times thicker and it takes up a lot more room in my pocket.
I don't care - it is the best case I've found so far, encasing the entire unit in a hard inner and flexible outer shell, and making me feel a lot happier about handling it. I can operate all the functions without removing the case - camera, headphones, sound on/off, touchscreen, charger, etc.
Fitting the case took about five minutes - the instructions were easy to follow. Yes, it actually comes with instructions, which is unusual for a phone case, but the different layers of protection do have to be fitted in a certain order. Once it's correctly fitted, it's probably better to leave it on. It's a bit cumbersome to take it on and off constantly. If you're the type of person who likes to have lots of covers and change them three times a day, this is not the one for you.
So yes, I like it - it is exactly what I wanted. I suppose a girly pink cover would look nicer, but I'm keeping this one.
