With the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, it’s now time for all the accessory manufacturers to out their Samsung Galaxy S5 cases and one of the first to launch their’s is Griffin Technology. Griffin is probably best known for its Survivor line of cases which provide very heavy-duty protection of whatever phone happens to be inside the case. Naturally, Griffin is bringing out a Survivor series case for the Galaxy S5 as well as two other slightly less protective cases.
If you haven’t heard of the Griffin Survivor before, it is “designed to meet military standards” and as you can see, it certainly looks the part. The Survivor for the Galaxy S5 will have a polycarbonate frame on the inside with a silicone jacket to give your device protection from 6-foot drops onto all manner of surfaces including concrete. There is also a built in screen protector to add further protection for your touchscreen. Griffin is bringing the Survivor out for $49.99 USD (to find out more you can visit the product page here).
While some of you may prefer the Survivor as it hides the dimpled back cover of the Galaxy S5, some of you might actually want to show off exactly which colour you ended up getting, though don’t want to compromise on protection. For that, Griffin also has a solution with the Survivor Clear, a case that still retains the 6-foot drop protection of the Survivor but can still bask in all its naked glory thanks to its transparent polycarbonate shell. If this is your cup of tea, the Survivor Clear will be sold for $29.99 (see more on its product page here).
The last case for the Galaxy S5 that Griffin launched today is the Reveal. While it doesn’t have the protective qualities of the Survivor and Survivor Clear, it is only 1.6mm thick all over and is still able to show off the rear of your Galaxy S5. And being made from polycarbonate, it’s likely to be able to take a few bumps and bruises during day-to-day use. The Reveal will be sold for $24.99 (check out its product page here).
So there you have it, three great new Samsung Galaxy S5 cases from Griffin Technology, so you better get in quick as it looks like they’re selling quite well; the Survivor’s estimated shipping time-frame has blown out to 8-10 weeks. Let us know if you’re eager to get one of Griffin’s new cases and which one.
