LifeProof iPhone cases
So, you may have noticed that the top thread on the forum main page, we are promoting the LifeProof iPhone case.
First off, yes Swellinfo makes a little bit of money if you click on the link and then buy a case, but that is not why we put it up (since hardly anyone will buy one from clicking there).
I added it because, I'm pretty stoked on the case, and just bought one myself. And, thought it might be a case others on here might want.
We posted a Facebook discussion a few days ago, but I wanted to post here, to ask if anyone has the LifeProof, and how they like it?
I haven't fully tested mine yet. For me, I'm on the beach a lot, and so I get a ton of sand in my pockets and occasionally drop my phone in the sand (yikes!). I'm sure the case will keep me covered for those occasions, but have you guys taken them out in the water (like on a boat or jet ski or anything?).
I figured it would be good also when I go Mountain Biking, skiing, etc...
I can say, that I like the look and feel of the case. I thought it was going to be more bulky, but its actually similar to my previous case and is very light weight. Pretty sweet product if you don't mind dropping $79 to protect your phone - it definitely isn't a cheap case.
I just recently bought one too. So far I like it, I've taken it to the beach, gotten it sandy and it's been fine. I've put it underwater in pools and it's been fine although that scares me a bit. It doesn't stick to your pocket either which is nice. The only downsides are the screen is a little harder to press but you get used to it. Also the headphone jack requires an adaptor to use headphones but it comes with it. So to listen to music you either need the adaptor or take off the case. I got mine on amazon for around 60$
Ya, the touch screen is slightly less sensitive going through chase, but its pretty minor.
I like that you don't have to use a screen protector, which always gets super dirty. So, the screen seems much clearer.
Someone needs to go make a phone call from under water...... YOU FIRST!
I wanna see someone put it on the go pro adapter and surf with in on their board, then I'll buy one
It works. I haven't done it but I've seen videos of people facetiming underwater. Obviously the conversation was very one sided. A friend of mine has this case and started cleaning his boat, got done and couldn't find his phone. He searched everywhere and found it in the bottom of the boat in about 4" of water working just fine.

i have the case. i have put it under water so many times and have taken videos under the pool with it. I recently recieved the lifeproof lifejacket so that i can now surf and take videos or pictures with it. i will post pictures once i take a few. i threw my phone in my pool with the lifejacket on and my friend called me while it was in the middle of the pool. and if anything does happen to my phone. then its my fault and for trying thats all.
Has anyone noticed a decrease in audio quality or volume using the case? I noticed a huge difference in audio quality when using the speaker phone with the Otterbox. The case really muffled my speech for the person I was talking to. People would always complain they couldn't hear me. I'm just wondering if it's the same for Lifeproof.
There isn't too much audio distortion with the life proof, what i usually do it open the charging door of the case when talking on speaker to allow the audio to not be so muffled. I have had the Lifeproof since it first came out and while the company had some problems in the beginning due to high demand and limited production i am still very pleased.
Let me tell you these cases are amazing. Being forgetful as i am i set my phone on the front bumper of my truck and forgot about it. Got to work to realize i didn't have my phone, so I thought for a second, then shear panic took over. Re traced my steps and found it sitting on the road. I ran over it with my 1/2 ton pickup truck and who knows how many other cars ran it over too. Picked up the phone which was faced down, expecting to see my iphone in pieces. To my surprise nothing wrong, the case didn't survive, but the phone did without a single scratch!! So was it worth the $80? You tell me!
Wow!!! That's impressive.
