G-Form iPhone 5 case given hands-on review

At the beginning of the year we looked at the G-Form XTREME iPhone 5 case being dropped from the edge of space, and as tests go, it seems the sky was not the limit once the company decided to let this go 100,000 feet above the Earth’s surface. The G-Form’s proprietary Reactive Protection Technology absorbs around 90% of the force with material that become stiffer on impact, yet some viewers have questioned the authenticity of this.

Some skeptical viewers unsure whether to believe this were expecting to see the full fall and impact, considering all of the crash landing was not seen. It’s easy to understand why many viewers may feel this is a marketing stunt by the company, and we expected to see more such as the iPhone 5 case being detached from the balloon totally and the device being used. In our previous article we showed the video of the drop and suggested that the use of the iPhone 5 camera would make this more believable quashing the amount of skepticism that surrounds this feat.

Now that the G-Form iPhone 5 case is shipping it seems one of the first hands-on reviews has appeared on YouTube, so we thought our readers would like to see this being shown off. The G-Form case comes in two parts, an inner shell that’s made from a TPU material and the outer shell, which actually has two pieces but they are stuck together to enhance its performance on impact. There is still space for those wanting to attach screen protectors, and for a heavy-duty case this still looks impressive.

Do you think the G-Form iPhone 5 case is worth $40? Maybe you have seen other cheaper and more attractive cases on the market? Take a look at the video below and let us know your thoughts.
