Four Unique iPhone 6/6 plus Cases From Griffin

Griffin Technology has released four new cases for iPhone 6 and 6 plus. Each offers unique features, but all four have several things in common.

The cases are: Survivor Slim  ($39.99 and $44.99 respectively), Survivor Core  ($29.99 each), Reveal ($19.99 each), and Identity (Prices range from $24.99 – $34.99 depending on style)

Each of these four case includes a one-year warranty. Each package has contact information for the company as well as a customer service phone number, each works with the fingerprint scanner, each has several color options, and each comes in sturdy, easy to open packaging. Now, for some people this last item may not seem to be that important, but for someone like me, who opens 6 or so products a week, you have no idea how wonderful it is to get into a product without the need of a chainsaw or sharp knife. Sometimes, in a pinch, even a two year old who can open anything.

The packaging designer for Griffin has created an outside case with an inner clear plastic case that holds the phone and simply slides out of the outside case. The inner case is held together by two snaps that quickly open, revealing the case.

The first is the Survivor Slim.

The cases weighs 2.2-oz and is 0.5-in thick. It is available in four colors – black, gray, mineral blue, and turquoise. The package includes a screen protector and micro cleaning cloth. The thick protective back means that the Apple logo doesn’t show.

The ports for the camera are open and of good size. The port is blackened to absorb reflection.

It is easy to insert the phone into the shell, but not so easy to remove because it offers a very tight fit. The ringer on/off button is recessed into the case to the point that it is not easy to flip the button. I used the nail of my smallest finger to fit into the recessed area. The buttons for the phone are covered and easy to depress.

This case fits easily into most pockets and the textured surface keeps it from slipping around. I had no trouble using the fingerprint scanner while testing this phone.

The second is the Survivor Core

The case weighs 1-oz and is ¼-in thick. This case is available in black or purple. The back of each is clear, allowing the Apple logo to show.

The Survivor Core offers drop protection up to 6.6 ft. The case covers the back and sides of the phone and has extra protection on each corner. The case also works well with a tempered glass glass screen protector like this one for iPhone 6 plus from ZAGG.

The ports for the camera are open and of good size. The port is blackened to absorb reflection. the on/off ringer button is recessed to prevent accidental switches. It is quite easy to insert and remove the phone from the case. The case fits easily into most pockets.

The third is the Reveal

The fourth is the Identity 

This case weighs 1-oz and is ¼-in thick. The outside is clear. The unique feature of the Identity is the case and back plate cover are separate pieces so that the back plate cover can be changed using multiple designs available from Griffin. When ordering, the purchaser chooses their phone with the backplate of their choice.

The Identity case features four foot drop protection and a raised lip to protect the front. I was able to use it with the tempered glass screen protector, but the fit was not as good as it would be without that specific screen protector.

I recommend any one of these cases. It’s all in your preferences.
