Griffin Survivor Extreme-Duty Case with Belt Clip for iPhone 4/4s - Black

Customer Reviews

The case is very heavy duty and will protect your phone if dropped.

I will be messaging them again and asking for a refund -- the only reason this case is getting TWO stars is because Griffin has AMAZING customer service.

When you try to talk on the phone even with the rubber flap open you cut in and out and the person on the other end can not hear you.

I have been using this case for about 6 weeks. The case is very heavy duty and will protect your phone if dropped. The big problem with this case is the sound quality of calls. For most calls, though not all calls there is a distinct echo on both ends. When there is an echo I have to remove the screen protector part of the case that snaps on in 6 places for the sound quality to be acceptable. It is a major inconvenience. I don't understand why removing this piece greatly improves the sound quality because it doesn't cover the microphone, but it does.

Follow up. After dealing with the poor sound quality for weeks, I finally took the phone out of the case and started to examine the case. There are 2 small pieces of black tape at the bottom of the case which cover the phone's speaker. I took a paper clip and removed them and now the speaker is visible and the sound quality is fine. It was that easy. I'm now a very happy owner of this Iphone 5 case.

After my wife cracked her last two screens, I ordered the Griffin Survivor for her new iphone 5. I was looking for something that would protect against drop dammage and severely limit the possibility of a cracked screen, and this case delivers with a few slight drawbacks.

Pro's

Sturdy shell which is drop-proof so far (dropped once from waist level onto concrete with no damage to the phone and no visible marks on the exterior of the case).

Screen protector sits flush against the phone screen and is responsive.

All buttons are surprisingly responsive.

Good, soft feel in your hand. My wife has small hands and can still use the phone with one hand no problem.

Camera flap easy to use. Flips out and rotates down, staying in place for picture taking.

Appears very water-resistant. You would have to immerse in water for some time to trash the phone. I have obviously not tested this theory, but I'm pretty confident it would survive a puddle drop.

Con's

Well, I wouldn't call it pretty. Got her a stylish incipio case to complement it.

Tends to echo at the beginning of a call. She does not hear it, but the person calling does. Goes away fairly quickly.

Can be slightly hard to hear her, speaker phone in particular.

Camera flap does not work with belt clip on. My wife does not use the belt clip, but if you do this could be irritating. Belt clip, incidentally, does not look flimsy as reported in previous incarnations

All in all, this is a very good case if you are looking to protect your phone. Functions work well, and it is comfortable to use. For this style of case it's not too bulky and not too expensive at $35. Recommended

I have purchased Griffin cases for all of my apple products. I love them. I have had one for my iphone 5 for the past 4 months. I love my smart phone...possibly to an unhealthy extent...and I want to keep it safe.

Cons:
1. It made my slim, sexy, little iphone 5 into a monster. Seriously...it like tripled the size. It went from sleek iphone 5, to cartoonishly silly, pink, monster phone. I like pink, and I like cartoons. *shrug* But, I'm saying...if you're say...a professional, wearing a power suit...you might feel a little silly whipping this sucker out.
2. Having to open the little flap to take a picture, is kind of a pain at first...especially when you want to capture that funny kid moment. I got used to it. *shrug*
3. The cartoonish size, and the non-slidy rubber, make it hard to fit into designated "phone pockets" in purses. Since I usually use the outside zipper pocket to keep it quickly accessibly for when the school nurse calls (boys...sheesh)...it hasn't been a big deal for me.
4. It lowers the sensitivity of buttons a little bit...especially in the corners. It bugs my husband, but not me. Who cares...it's MY phone. *grin*
5. The clippy thing...if it was on...it would double again the size of the phone. I don't use it. Guys might...but, I have a purse.

Pros:
1. Otterbox makes a similar product (my sister has it), but it has hard plastic on the outside. The rubber on this one, makes it so it wont slide when I set it down...on the passenger seat in the car, on the center console, on my knee, etc. Anytime I am waiting for Soccer practice to be over.
2. While talking on the phone, I tripped over a stool my kids left out, and my phone flew across my garage and hit the cement...hard. It was like a slow motion sit com moment..."Noooooo!"...

I have Griffin survivor cases for the ipad 3, ipad mini and iphone 4S and I love them. They are amazing cases that have protected my devices from the worst abuses that a toddler can put on them. However, I recommend that you NOT buy this particular aqua blue plastic case for one reason: the plastic opening around the camera lense is aqua blue colored plastic. So, when you use your flash and take a photo, the photo comes out with a horrible aqua blue tint to it and the photo is not fixable as it also has an aqua blue haze on it. I ruined several important Christmas night outdoor photo ops because of this.

My other Griffin Survivor cases have a black rim around the plastic opening where the camera lense is so they do not have this problem. So, if you want to take flash pictures then avoid this aqua blue Griffin case and get a black Griffin Survivor case to avoid the problem of aqua blue hazy photos. Just note though, that the black griffin survivor cases are amazing and I could not recommend them more highly, so please keep in mind that this one star review is only for the aqua blue plastic case and it not reflective of the Griffin Survivor cases's ability to protect the phone. Still, I feel a one star rating for this aqua blue case is warranted to protect others who love Griffin cases like I do, from buying this particular aqua blue case and suffering through ruined aqua blue tinted flash photos that are unusable.
