Go on a Journey with your iPhone 6/6S
Griffin Journey Review – Griffin makes another great case
Today we’re going to do a review of the Griffin Journey. This is one of Griffin’s newer iPhone 6/6S cases and we have to say that we’re impressed with the case. The Journey is a bigger slim iPhone case that offers great access to your iPhone, is extremely grippy and is drop rated up to 6.6 ft.
For our Griffin Journey review, we’ve given this case a score of 4.3 Eh’s out of 5. This is one of the better iPhone cases that we have reviewed and is up there with the Griffin Survivor Core, Thule Atmos X3 and Loopy Vibe. At Mobile Reviews Eh, we’ve personally reviewed over a 50 slim iPhone cases for the iPhone 6 so if you’re looking one specifically, check out the comparison tool.

Design – A brick of rubber for your iPhone
In terms of design, the Journey is a thicker iPhone case and when its on your iPhone, you know its there. Everything fits well together and the case seems to hold up well. The back of the case doesn’t scratch as easily as the Griffin Survivor Core which some people didn’t like. The edges of the case are incredibly rigid and go up quite high on the iPhone so screen protectors that go slightly past the edge may not work with this case.
Protection – How tough is it really?
In terms of protection, the Griffin Journey is drop rated to 6.6 ft so if you’re looking for something that have you covered for almost every usage scenario and you’re not taller than 6.6 ft, then the Griffin Journey will have you covered. Now, with every case that a company claims to be drop-rated, we’ll take a chance with our iPhones to see if that’s actually the case. Check out the review video for the results of our 6.6 ft drop test.
The edges of the case are a little shorter for our liking but putting your iPhone down on a flat surface will keep the screen off a flat surface. In terms of dust protection, as we mentioned earlier, are very rigid so nothing is getting in between the iPhone and the case.
Functionality – Your iPhone will stay in your hand
In our opinion, this is the best Griffin case in terms of handling. There are no issues getting to the screen of your iPhone. Access to the buttons isn’t tough like the Griffin Survivor Core or small like the Griffin Slim Armor. The cutouts are big enough to use third party cables and headphones and as we said earlier, the Griffin Journey is very grippy. Your iPhone isn’t going to fly out of your hand.
