    Great Phone Case for 100% Protection

    I recently purchased an iPhone SE and added it to my account, so that I could use it almost exclusively while driving with Lyft to reduce the “wear and tear” on my main Android cell phone. Knowing that I was going to be using my new SE a lot out on the road as well as the fact that I want to eventually give it to my mom in perfect shape, I immediately thought of Lifeproof — known for its outstanding record at protecting mobile phones in almost every condition imaginable without all the bulkiness that comes along with most other protective cases — and was thrilled to find this Lifeproof case for the SE at my local Best Buy. Since purchasing it, I’ve dropped the phone once on the pavement and upon checking for any damage that drop may have caused, I quickly came to the conclusion that both the Lifeproof case as well as the iPhone SE it protects had not been damaged at all and that both still looked brand new, with not even a scratch on either of them. Furthermore, if anything ever goes wrong with this case that shouldn’t have, Lifeproof will replace it through their awesome warranty that comes with all their cases. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and definitely recommend this product to anybody who is looking for a case that not only provides the ultimate level of protection for their mobile device, but also isn’t bulky — so it looks great too!

    The best protection for my cell I've ever owned.

    For nearly a decade I have opted for another well known and reputable product to protect my iphone(s). Pursuant to a bone head oversight on my part whereby I inadvertently left my phone in the pocket of trousers that I wore while mowing the lawn, planting trees and shrubs and many other miscellaneous chores around my home all day - and subsequently throwing the trousers in the washing machine at the end of that day. It only took several minutes into the cycle for the water to destroy the phone. I vowed, not only to make every effort to never repeat the same mistake, but to purchase the best protection available on the market as backup. Extensive research via the Internet, querying IT telecommunications SMEs at work as well as multiple Best Buy SMEs at different stores gleaned virtually the same resilts. That is, no other brand comes close to providing waterproof protection - as well as the ability to protect against dropping of the phone etc. What has really won me over is the sleek fit of the case that doesn't double or triple the size of the phone. More importantly - it's the testing process of the product insisted upon by the manufacturer in order to confirm that the case you've purchased isn't flawed. That is, you actually submerge the case under water before applying it to your phone. After said testing, I was and remained absolutely convinced that I have the best protection that my money can buy.

    NOT WATERPROOF (even to minimal water exposure)

    Posted
    SaraJ

    This product claims it will protect your phone even if completely submerged in water...my phone was splashed by a wave at the beach (with case fully secured - all openings were securely closed), and the case allowed enough water to get in to ruin my phone. The case was very expensive (I paid $90+ for it last summer) and the bulk was inconvenient, but I was willing to sacrifice the expense and the inconvenience for the full protection and am very disappointed that it was for nothing. This case offers no more protection that the sleeker, rubber cases and a glass screen protector, which I have on other phones in my household. (I should mention that my husband has this case as well, and complains that dust and dirt are constantly getting inside his case, requiring frequent cleaning.) This phone was taken for pictures by the water, rather than the other phones, with the belief that it was better protected. We did not drop or place the phone in water - a wave splashed it. It was not even submerged, which the product boasts and sells itself on being able to handle. Unfortunately, the Lifeproof case did not hold up to minimal contact with water. I do not recommend this case, and certainly do not recommend trusting it will protect your phone anywhere near water.

    Water Resistant/Power Port Cover

    Over All. A very protective case. This is the 2nd life proof case that I purchased for my daughter. CONS: 1. Is not water proof just water resisted. It can handle a splash of water but DO NOT use it for under water photos. My daughter did and guess what? Water got in and destroyed her phone. Life proof will not replace your damaged phone because of water damage. They will however replace the case. 2. The power port cover on both cases broke off very shortly after they were installed onto the phones. Maybe my daughter was a little rough with the port cover, maybe not. Either way, still dissapointed in the quality/strength of it. PROS: 1. This case will keep your phone in prestine condition. 2. I always get the maximum trade in allowance on phones that were always kept in a lifeproof case.(as Long as they were not water damaged)

    I used to swear by lifeproof cases until this one

    I have purchased LifeProof cases before and loved them!! I watched countless review videos and read a lot of articles with mixed reviews but I always had such a positive experience with LifeProof. When I purchased the case I immediately put my phone in. After a week I noticed some dog hair under the screen so when I tried to remove the phone, the sceen cover on the front of the case bent, leaving a noticeable crease. Then I noticed a small crack in the plastic around the charging port. I have not dropped the phone to cause this. I haven’t even had this case for one month, and I am very unhappy with it. Especially for the price I paid!!! I have not contacted the company to see if they will do anything yet but will updated review if they are willing to help.

      Hey there DesCollings,

      Oh no, we're so sorry to see that this FRĒ series did not agree with that dog hair! It is strange that such elements were able to infiltrate the unit, not to mention the crack appearing in the plastic. Not to worry - our reliable representatives are always just a call away at 1-888-533-0735! Please feel free to give them a ring, and they'll gladly set you up with a warranty replacement. We'll send you a new case that we're confident should deliver on all of your LifeProof hopes and dreams!

      Cheers,

    Not so great

    This phone case is very light and I agree it does not add any weight to the phone, I've dropped it without anything breaking. The trouble I have is making phone calls. I have to open the bottom portion where the plug enters to be able to hit any numbers or hide the keys. If this is not open you can't push any phone buttons or hang up. This is a huge issue for me. For example: If I make a call without opening up the bottom portion I can't hit anything on the phone such as "press 2 for customer service" It doesn't respond to any touch. When I hang up using the red button below the numbers nothing happens. This occurs whether the bottom portion is open or not. I have to hang up using the shut off button on top of the phone and sometimes I have to shut the phone completely off before it hangs up. I wanted to return it because I find this is a huge problem. I did buy it on sale maybe that's the reason.

    Better than they used to be

    Let me start off by saying the last thing I want to put on my phone is a LifeProof case. But summer is here which means boating at the lake, lawn and garden work, swimming in the pool... etc... There's just nothing else that provides the water and dirt proof protection that the LifeProof does. I have used these cases for years and I will say they are better now than they used to be. People used to complain that they could not hear me or that I sounded "muffled" if I didn't hold the phone just right. Not really hearing those types of complaints now. Also, I'm not having problems hearing like I used to. The quality seems to have gotten better over the years. I'm only giving 4 stars because there is still the annoying rainbow effect on the screen. Other than that, there is nothing that will keep the dirt and water out like a LifeProof.

    Fair Value & Touch ID (Still) Works

    The Frē LifeProof case is a great accessory for the rough user, like a child or a teen. I bought mine for my daughter on sale (40% off), and it was a great deal at that price. I'm not sure I would pay full price for the product because, though it's tough, there are some usability concerns that detract from the value. First, it is difficult to open the waterproof power port covering. Second, the built-in screen protector obstructs some screen taps or swipes from making good contact. However, the plastic covering over the Touch ID sensor still allows for your fingerprint to unlock the phone. All-in-all, a good purchase for my intended user's needs and at the lower price point.

      Hey Eurilycus,

      We're glad to hear that your daughter's iPhone is well protected within the FRĒ series! We apologize that she is struggling with a couple features of the unit. True, sometimes the case can take some getting used to due to the tough protective barriers, but with some time, that charger port door should become easier to access.

      As for the screen protector, it sounds like there might be a slightly bigger gap between the integrated plastic and the phone display than we would normally prefer, and we would love to take a closer look. Please feel welcome to call our handy representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll find a quick fix in no time!

      Sincerely,
      LifeProof Customer Service Team lifeproof
