The Survivor Summit case, from Griffin, is very much a case for those who want the best protection for their smartphone.
It has been tested to withstand and survive 10-foot drops, has been designed for IP-55 rated splash and spray resistance, is resistant to dirt, sand, vibration and shock, and also meets U.S. Military Standard 810G.
It’s safe to say you won’t be damaging your smartphone any time soon if you’re using the Summit case.
During my time testing the Summit with my iPhone 6, it’s been a pleasure to use. It’s a little bulky for my tastes, but is perfect for those of you who go adventuring outside and are perhaps prone to dropping or damaging your devices. Despite the case being almost twice the depth of the iPhone 6, I had no issues fitting it in my pocket.
The sliding high-clarity screen guard does a great job of protecting the screen on your device, but I found that it scratches quite easily because of its plastic design.
Despite this, I didn’t have any issues with touch screen functionality, or using Touch ID, whilst using the device through the plastic screen guard.
All of the ports and buttons are well-protected thanks to the weather-sealed covers scattered around the device.
Thanks to the inclusion of a holster-style clip, which can be clipped on to your belt or even a bag strap, your phone can be kept close and secure without the worry of it falling out of your pocket.
The clip can also be rotated to turn your case in to a stand for watching videos or making FaceTime calls. A very simple, but useful feature.
As well as the black and clear version I tested today, the Summit case is also available in plain black, black and blue, and pink and grey.
