Fri, 23 Nov 2012 Griffin KaZoo for iPhone 5 review
Smother your iPhone 5 in an elephant: that'll certainly protect it well
- Manufacturer: Griffin Technology
- Pros: Phone feels safe and protected; Attention to detail
- Cons: Hides the iPhone 5's looks completely
- Price: £19.99
- Star rating:
This elephantine iPhone 5 case from Griffin Technology (there's also a monkey version) is very comfortable to hold in one's hand - the phone feels safe and protected, and its controls are easy to access and use. It's fashioned from soft silicone with a pleasing matt finish.
The visuals are a treat. That nice, vibrant colour makes it stand out so much that it's easy to find at the bottom of a bag, and we love the attention to detail: the Home button is covered by a 'paw print' and the volume controls are in the elephant's ears.
Of those we've asked, girls seem to love this case and want it, while guys think it's either cute or silly (but may well end up buying it for their girlfriends).
It doesn't exactly complement the iPhone's sleek and gorgeous design, however; in fact the case hides the iPhone's looks completely. Possibly not one for people who like to show off their choice of smartphone.
