      Awesome rugged case! But...

      This phone case is great for those who tend to work in environments where dropping your phone would experience a little bit more than a normal impact. Places where there are some oils/fluids and steel ledges exist make this case useful to have. The phone holder that attaches to your belt makes it very easy to access your phone when you need it. I like it, but... The water resistant part that covers the main speaker for talking on the phone makes it really hard to hear people on the phone. If you really need the protection for your phone.. you may want a Bluetooth Headset to go with it. The case protects everything but the phone camera lens, LED, and mic. I would be concerned about mud, sand, or oil hurting your camera. The rest of the case would help protect the phone for a short duration when exposed to fluids. The extra screen protection layer reduces the response of the touch screen making it frustrating to use the phone after putting the phone into the case. You get used to it, but you have to press down a little more to use the phone. This may be frustrating for some people since the screen protector is not an optional part of the case. In addition, the screen protector doesn't offer the same protection as a screen protector that you normally put on your phone.. so it is only great for extra scratch protection and fluid resistance. I like the case, but there are some downsides that come with protecting your phone with this case.

      Bad product

      If you plan on using your phone for phone conversations, whether on speaker or hand held, music. Don't buy it. If you plan on putting your phone in this case in your pocket, purse, backpack don't buy it. The dustcover does not stop the dust from getting into the cover, but traps the that gets in. The speaker phone and microphone are so close on the iPhone 7 that the dustcover reflects the output into the input mic. Tried removing one side of the dust cover and it made it slightly better but the output speaker is still reflecting into the microphone. I have to hold the phone less than a centimeter from my mouth for anyone to barely hear me and I confirmed it when I tested with a friend on the issue. Once I took off the cover and used the phone as normal. Everything worked flawlessly as a normal phone should. The screen protector scratches easy. Cheap plastic construction. Not worth the $40. Better off using a heavy duty ziplock bag with small holes poked into it. I gave the cover a month worth of use so it's trial and error, but in this case, there were too many errors. Spend a few dollars more and get the otterbox but if $40 is the budget go with something else. I don't like bashing reviews on products, but this products is just that bad.

      A serious case with minor flaws

      I loved my old Speck case, which survived many drops and falls, but it was starting to get worn and I decided to go for something more substantial. This case is definitely hardcore, with a thick, strong outer rim and integrated screen protector. I am satisfied with it, but it does have a few drawbacks compared to my old case: The thick bottom edge means it will not sit on my dock. I have to either plug it in with a wire, or remove the case. Removing the case takes some practice and some pressure. If you care about your fingernails (or don't have any), you'll need something to pop the edge with. Once you unlatch the edge though, it slides apart really easily. My second complaint is the way that the plastic affects the sound quality. The iPhone's speakers are certainly nothing to write home about on their own, but when you put a thin piece of plastic over them it can reduce their range and, more annoyingly, can introduce a buzzing as the plastic vibrates at certain frequencies. Overall, if you're looking for serious protection and don't mind the above issues, this one is a good choice.

      Griffin Tough

      Another new iPhone so another Griffin Survivor case. I still have all of my prior iPhones because nothing gets broken in a Griffin case. The 4S version was indestructible, and the 6 Plus version was also well cushioned. The current version doesn't look as formidable as the prior versions but it looks sturdy enough to withstand a 10 foot fall. As with the prior versions you have to punch out the insert which is over the ear hole or you won't hear anyone but it is made to be punched out. The phone fits once you master putting it in the case, and the buttons work. I would have preferred the more bulky type in the prior versions but i understand Griffin has to compete with the non-military spec cases out there which look good but don't do anything. I don't care what it looks like as long as it goes in my pocket and protects the phone from being run over and blow torches.

      Very sturdy, but with a couple of drawbacks.

      After cracking the glass on my iPhone 7+, I decided to get a more solid case with a screen protector. This case is definitely solid! It adds a bit of heft to the phone, but it makes it feel much less vulnerable. I like that it's got smooth plastic and no rubbery surfaces that pull my pockets inside out when I get it out. The shortcomings: 1 - The screen cover makes images from the front-facing camera a bit fuzzy. I'd like a hole there. 2 - The little membrane covering the touch sensor became pretty slack after a while and I eventually just removed it. 3 - The case prevents me from putting the phone on my dock, so I remove it every night. However, you must be careful when putting the phone back in the case, as the switches for the ringer and power might not align with the outer case perfectly if you're not careful. At least once I found myself with a ringing phone that I couldn't turn off until I opened the case. Overall though, it's a great case if you want something really protective and don't use a lighting-port dock or take a ton of selfies.

      Great product for the price

      I was going to buy a black Otter Box when I purchased my iPhone 7 Plus. They did not have a black one. I looked through the different cases but everything looked really cheap and was priced too high. I noticed this case at the very bottom. I immediately liked it because it is as if Otter Box and the Life Proof Case had a baby. I popped out the plastic screen because I have a glass screen protector on my phone. It made it difficult to touch things once and the home button was difficult to press. That is not an issue because I pop off all the plastic screens that come with a protective case for my phones. I would have given this 5 stars but the only thing that I do not like is the silence/ringer switch. It is too loose. I highly recommend this product. I have dropped it a couple time on concrete and there are no scratches or dents on the case. It comes with a belt clip that doubles as a stand for watching videos. The phone can clip inwards or outwards. I will buy this product for future phones.

      As Good as an Otterbox Defender

      I'm pretty rough and careless with my smartphones, so I've traditionally used Otterbox Defenders to protect my phones from me. I ordered an iPhone 8 Plus with an Otterbox Defender 2 weeks ago, but my carrier sent me a purple case. That just wasn't going to work. I decided to drop into Best Buy to see if they had it in a more masculine color. Surprisingly, they only had purple cases too. I stumbled upon the Griffin Survivor while seeking an alternative. It claimed to be tough and it was the color black. I decided to give it a go. It was a little clumsy getting on at first, but other than that, it's been doing a great job of absorbing falls, dings, and scratches. I'd definitely use a Survivor again. I only gave it 4 stars because I've only used it for a week or so. If it gets me through the life of my phone, believe you me, I'll give it 5.

      Just got a new iPhone 7plus. Needed a quick case to protect it. I have the (Product)Red iPhone and l want to show it off. This case states that it's clear on the back. However, the back is not very clear, hard to tell the color of the phone with the exception of around the camera since there's no protection there. There are pads on the speaker and mic openings that I had to remove because it severely muffled the person I was talking to and muffled my voice for them. The housing looks durable. Have not dropped it yet. The screen protector is annoying because it doesn't lay flat on the screen so the protector actually interferes with app usage and daily texts/calls. Not a fan of the flimsy plastic screen protectors. They scratch easy and don't provide much protection. I ordered a crystal clear case and tempered glass for the screen so the Griffin case will get junked when I get those.
