Are you or someone you know and love, a person who is often clumsy or often drops things, especially brand new smart phones like the iPhone 4s?
Well, you have seen what can happen with an iPhone 4/4s when it gets dropped even from shoulder’s height: it shatters almost immediately.
I am one of those people who are clumsy/disaster prone and so I decided to look for a iPhone case to help protect my new valuable smart phone from my clumsiness or unforeseen disasters.
The Griffin Survivor Extreme-Duty Case definitely holds up so far as a reliable, useful, and one of the best iPhone protective cases I have had. It is made of high quality and is even tested by the military for use.
Created by Griffin Technology, this case weighs 6.9 ounces and measures 6.9 inches x 4.7 inches x 1.8 inches.
Tested to meet military conditions set by the US Department of Defense, UK Department of Defense the Griffin Survivor case is made with a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame clad in rugged, shock-absorbing silicone.
- Deflects Wind/ Rain
- Shock / Drop Tested up to 6 feet
- Sand / Dust Protection
- Blocks Vibration
There are two parts to the Survivor case:
- Internal Frame protects from shock and drops from 6 feet
- – built in screen protector that seals the display in
- Silicon Padding blocks vibration
- Sealed ports block blown sand and dust
Multi-position Clip securely attaches to pack strap or belt.
The sealed cover over the front camera is tricky at first but it is definitely sealed in there for protection. All you have to do is pinch the flap and pull and it will come right out. The one thing is that the camera flap is a bit awkward to use and can be cumbersome if you enjoy taking photos often using your iPhone.
The touch display buttons all work fine with the clear case over it, though there is slight difficulty when pressing buttons close to the edges of the screen, not uncommon like other cases out there.
One review of the case was cited by a soldier who used it in Iraq in the black hawk helicopters and called it “Virtually dust proof”. If you can take this out into the desert in war conditions, this should be good for you if you are prone to dropping iPhones or if you are in construction areas where there is a lot of opportunity for the iphone to drop or get dusty.
