I bought this product in October 2013. The level of protection this give to the iPhone is fantastic. I had left my phone on the bonnet of my car, (daft I know) then left the Farm I have just been on got about 1 mile away when I saw a black thing fly over my windscreen at 60mph the with great dread watched it his the road and summer salut till it stopped, as it left the car I realised what it was. I when back to pick the phone up from what a perceived to be a mangled mess. The phone had partly come out of the case making it look really back then I picked up the phone and to my surprise the screen was in tack and so was the exposed corner of the phone and the phone was still working. When I got home I removed the case to find that there was no scratches or damage to my phone what so ever. The case did sustain very light damage but if did its job fantastically well. I am so pleased that I will be contacting Griffin to tell them how great this product is. If you by a case for an iPhone make it this one. The case still allows you to use nearly all the phones feature. The only feature you can't easily use is the finger print unlock feature, but I can live with that.
I've had my case for 6 months now. I haven't had any major drops as such, but around the outside of the case, the rubber is peeling away from the plastic backing, and has also cracked around the camera. While I can't fault the protective value and the looks of the case, it has poor build quality.
Really nice simple design. Very sturdy and protects the phone well! Would've been nice if the entire case was clear, not just the back. And the case could've been a little deeper to protect the screen a little better, should the unfortunate happen! But over all a nice little case!
First impressions. Looks good and feels great. Intelligent design. Protected where it needs it the most and minimalist where it's not needed. The box has some good specs on it.....US army approved, protected if dropped from 6 ft.
