Griffin Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Plus Review
      #47374 - 12/01/14 04:38 PM

Griffin's Wallet Case seeks to replace your actual wallet, but lack of storage makes it a wallet case in name only. Your iPhone slides into the Wallet Case easily, and the rigid polycarbonate frame holds your device securely without obstructing any ports, buttons or switches. Once installed, your phone will only be nominally wider and longer, although it will be approximately twice as thick, thanks to the integrated screen cover.



Features and Quality

Griffin's Wallet Case comes with two slots in the inner flap for you to store cards or cash. These slots hug your stuff quite securely so there is almost no chance of them wriggling out through daily use. Unfortunately, Griffin achieves this peace of mind by making the slots so narrow that only one card or bill will fit in each slot. This lack of storage is compounded by the fact that only two slots are provided, even though there is plenty of room for more. Most likely, this is because they would have to add additional layers to accommodate additional slots, which would add both thickness and cost to the product. While I understand the tradeoff, the result feels more like a folio case for your iPhone with a few storage slots, than a true wallet case. My biggest problem with the Wallet Case, however, is the fact that when your iPhone is in use, your cards/cash are exposed to the world right there on the back of your phone. In this day of rampant iPhone theft, this is the urban equivalent of attaching a raw chicken to your device and visiting an alligator farm. As a folio case, however, it easily holds its own, thanks to its rigid frame and cover that doubles as a viewing stand.



Style

The Wallet Case has an ultra-conservative look thanks to its single color option (black) and its buttoned-up crosshatch texture.



Summary

While the Wallet Case fails in its quest to replace your actual wallet, it succeeds somewhat as a folio case. If you're looking for an iPhone case with a cover that folds back, this one will probably suit you just fine. Just don't put anything valuable in the slots if you intend to use your device in a public place.



Editor's Ratings (1-5): 3.5
What's Hot: Integrated screen cover folds out of the way when in use, or doubles as a viewing stand. Two built-in slots for cards/cash.
What's Not: Only room for a single card or a single bill in each slot. Cards/cash exposed and visible when iPhone is in use.
Price: $39.99
