    So I have both the Survivor Slim and the Survivor Core cases and I decided to take some pics and video of the two side by side. Hope someone finds this useful--I think it can be hard sometimes to compare two different case models if you never see them side by side:

    Survivor Core(Left) and Survivor Slim(Right): Front Bottom Side by Side View.jpg

    They are both really good case options, I think, but it just depends upon what you want. The Survivor Slim is much bulkier than the Core, but I think it probably provides more protection.

    Here's a link to my YouTube review if you want to see more:

    Thanks!

    Thank you for sharing.
    It was a good idea to compare the cases. I think I would prefer the Slim version as it provides more protection.

    Thanks, guys. I found it really helpful to set the two cases side by side, especially with iPhones in them. When my husband finally upgraded to the 6 Plus, I took advantage of the opportunity to compare the two cases, both with 6 Plus's in them. I really do like both cases, but they are very different. The Survivor Core definitely wins the beauty pageant, but if you are looking for a phone case you can be a bit less careful with, the Survivor Slim has a very reassuring feel to it. I also reviewed each case separately on YouTube, if anyone is interested in watching:

    I think the name is way off in this one. "Slim"?!! This is one of the bulkiest cases I have ever seen. Sure great, if you work on a construction site, but slim it ain't.
    Btw, nice videos.

    Thanks. I totally agree that the 'Slim' is kind of an odd name for this case. However, it makes perfect sense when you realize that it was named 'Slim' in comparison with the Griffin Survivor All-Terrain, which is quite a beefy case.

    Thanks!

    Kristin
