The Griffin Survivor case for the iPhone 4/4S has three pieces to it , the front screen protector, back protector and thick silicone skin. Once the iPhone is in the case, it will look and feel great , while still having unbeatable protection, thanks to all them layers.

On the case, there is various covers for the :

  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Power on/off button
  • Charger port
  • Volume buttons
  • Mute button
  • Home Button

The belt clip that comes with the case is quite sturdy and clips onto the back of the case really easy. The belt clip also doubles as a stand , so you can place your device on a desk , sit back , relax and watch a movie. I used the belt clip every time I went out with my friends and it did a great job of keeping my phone close by , better yet the phone didn’t fall of my belt, so the belt clip must be quite strong, which is good.

The Griffin Survivor does add quite alot of bulk and weight to your device, I would rather have a chunky iPhone than a cracked iPhone, wouldn’t you ?

On the Griffin Survivor case , there is a plastic screen protection on the front. The sensitivity , brightness and quality of the screen is not affected unlike other high protection cases like the Otter Box Defender and it also has a nice anti-glare look to it , so the screen will be more visible in direct sunlight, it works .


The Griffin Survivor case is a brilliant case , all round. The protection is A1, the styling is A1 and the price is pretty reasonably also, so its a great package. The belt clip is a little bonus and what a great bonus it is, its great for viewing back videos on the go and holding your phone safely on your belt while your out and about . Cant fault this case, I love it and you will to.

Rating – 10/10 – Great case.
