Now that you have decided that you need a good strong cover for your iPhone, you need to know two names: Griffin and Otterbox. These names are becoming quite popular amongst consumers who really want to protect their iPhones. Griffin has produced the iPhone Survivor case while Otterbox have produced the iPhone Defender case.Now like all manufacturers in competition with each other they both produce products with many of the same features. Distinguishing which particular version of these features is more appropriate for you can be quite tricky. That is where product reviews come into it, and there are so many platforms from which you can search for good reviews.
YouTube is a great place to look for reviews and even product testing. There are great videos on YouTube that show people flinging their Defender and Survivor clad iPhones high into the air so that they can capture the result on camera for your viewing pleasure. You can also search through customer reviews on the individual manufacturer’s websites or even just as easily Google the product with the word review and a multitude of review pages will be available for your perusal.Look at here best s8 plus cases .
A few of the main features that I have noticed that are similar about the two different cases is the basic material that they are made out of. Both cases are made from a hard body of polycarbonate and a soft shock absorbing outer skin of silicone. They are both also equipped with a built in screen protector and silicone flaps that seal the ports and buttons to protect form dust and water. Each case design has a protruding polycarbonate frame around the screen to help prevent direct contact between the screen and other surfaces when the iPhone is dropped. That particular feature can take a bit of getting used to as the frame can make it difficult to use the very edge of the screen.
The flaps on the Otterbox Defender are seen by some as being incomplete, as not every place that you would want to prevent water and dust from entering is covered. Whereas on the Griffin Survivor every possible point of entry is protected by a silicone flap, including the camera on the back of the iPhone. The flap covering the camera is seen as a nuisance by some consumers as it is not really a point that can be affected by dust and water, yet it is annoying to have to move the flap for taking photos. The Defender has a thinner outer silicone skin which has helped to streamline the case to make it more aesthetically appealing. The Survivor’s outer silicone skin was designed with some serious shock absorbing ability, with thicker bumpers placed on the corners and edges. These bumpers are placed in these strategic spots as these will likely be the first point of contact with another surface when the iPhone is dropped.
