First Look: Griffin Motif for iPhone 4
Company: Griffin Technology
Compatible: iPhone 4
New to Griffin's iPhone 4 case lineup is Motif ($20), an inexpensive TPU plastic case that follows in the generally positive history of competitors' hydrocarbon iPhone 3G/3GS designs. Motif features a glossy smoke-colored soft plastic body that provides top and side button protection, plus highly contoured holes for the headphone port, microphones, rear camera, bottom speaker, Dock Connector port, and ringer switch -- tight around the headphone port and camera, but quite open on the bottom. The novelty of this and predecessor cases is the plastic's interior molding, which adds a cool reflective diamond pattern to the iPhone 4's back surface. No screen protection is included, but for the price, you can afford to buy high-quality film separately.
