Now that Apple have released the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus you might want to consider buying a case for them – here is our two minute review of the Griffin iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus) Wallet Case.
Streamlined is the word for this sleek wallet. It keeps your iPhone safe and at the ready, plus ID or credit cards and cash in slots inside the cover. The cover is hinged like a book to fold back out of your way during use. The case has cutaways for ports and controls, and grips the sides of your iPhone to give you edge-to-edge access to your touchscreen.
- Wallet for cards, cash, and iPhone 6 Plus
- Protective cover opens like a book
- Built-in polycarbonate frame grips your iPhone edge to edge without hindering your access to the touchscreen
- Slots inside the cover for 2 ID or bank cards or cash
What’s in the Box?
The box contains the wallet case only.
A Closer Look
On the inside flap are slots for cards and cash if you want to use them.
Using the Wallet
Slotting the iPhone 6 into the wallet was a little bit of a tight squeeze, but that’s exactly what you want! Removing it is the same tight squeeze so take your time so as you don’t damage either the case or the iPhone.
Even the iPhone 6 Plus version fits in your hand (just)!
It is very easy to open the cover all the way and pop it behind the back of the case when you are using the iPhone for phone calls – otherwise it can be a little uncomfortable trying to use it.
As the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have only recently been released there are not that many options to choose from for protecting them with a case other than just a standard case, and so when we were told about the Griffin Wallet Cases we thought they might make a nice change, and we were not wrong!
The case itself opens up just like a book revealing both the iPhone 6 held extremely securely in place and also some slots for either cards, business cards or cash (or anything else you might want to put there). Just be careful about putting anything there that might scratch the screen of your iPhone.
The case does add a little to the thickness of the iPhone 6, but then you are putting it in the case to protect it.
My only little gripe is that the front cover doesn’t stay closed when the iPhone is just sitting on a surface. I found myself continually turning it over so that the front cover was facing whatever surface I had the iPhone on, but it’s not too much of an issue.
Overall I was very happy with the Wallet Case and my iPhone 6 Plus is sitting nice and secure by my side as I write this review, and I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to protect their iPhone 6.
The Griffin iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Wallet Case retails for around £24.99.
