Griffin Elan Passport case for iPhone 4 - accessory review
Griffin Elan Passport case for iPhone 4 is beautifully crafted wallet-style case that protects your phone while providing convenient storage for cash and credit cards. It comes in two color designs, platinum and black, but for men considering using it as a... European carrier, be warned that lilac accents and paisley inner lining means only the most confident need apply.
Interested to see if the function lives up to the form? Stay with us after the break!
The Griffin Elan Passport stays securely closed with a snap, but flips open easily to give you access to your iPhone 4, your favourite credit cards and some cash (and maybe even a Pogo stylus!). The inner lining will protect your iPhone 4 from scratches caused by almost anything that your might carry in your purse or briefcase. I really liked the feel of this case and the meticulous design. It even has a chrome accent on the front of the case which was a nice finishing touch.
Your dock port stays accessible and should fit most cables. There's also a camera cut out that allows you to take pictures with your iPhone 4 still inside the Passport case, something many wallet-style cases forget.
The only thing that I felt could have been better executed was the manner in which the home button works. The case has the home button covered instead of being cut out. They added a small metal piece to the fabric to help depression but I did find it takes a bit more effort to turn on your phone.
Overall, the Griffin Elan Passport for iPhone 4 is perfect for anyone who wants the convenience of a wallet and case in one, with easy, elegant access to phone and funds alike. Pick one up today from the TiPb iPhone 4 accessory store for the man or woman you love!
