      LifeProof is NOT what it used to be..

      I've had 4 previous LifeProof products in years past, and they were all great. These new models (since Otterbox took over the company) are not at all what they used to be. Quality has dropped dramatically. I'll list my pros and cons for this specific case below, however, I will never purchase another LifeProof product again. iPhone 7 LifeProof FrÊ Pros •Looks good •Fairly lightweight & slim •Lots of color options Cons •Very cheap plastic •Sharp corners/edges that are uncomfortable and jagged against fingers & hands •NOT as water-resistant as claimed •Built in screen protector is very low quality (it doesn't sit flush against the device so you can feel it when you press the screen, screen is now less responsive, and visually it's not completely clear; it's very low quality and has a grainy rainbow effect) •Case has gaps in different places all around and doesn't properly close in each area •WAY too expensive for what you're getting. Absolutely NOT worth the price •Extremely uncomfortable and sharp edges around TouchID sensor •Because the plastic is so bad and cheaply produced, I definitely wouldn't trust this to protect much at all in a drop scenario. And even if it does protect the device inside, the plastic is so cheap that the case will be ruined and damaged. So it may save your device, but you may still be out a case that costs in the $100 range. Not worth it and not cost effective. I dunno.. these are not anywhere near the quality of the old LifeProof products. I'm still within the return window, so I'm pretty sure I'll be returning this later on this evening.

        Hey there tbn84,

        Thanks for your extensive and candid feedback on this iPhone 7 FRĒ series! While we certainly understand your hesitation towards the price point, we truly feel that the cost of the unit is well worth the tested high-caliber protection, outstanding customer service, and one-year warranty that all come along with the product. This case is designed to absorb the brunt of any impacts that might otherwise jeopardize your device, and if the unit is damaged in the process, we're happy to replace it for you.

        We are also willing to look into a warranty replacement for situations where the case is behaving strangely, such as the odd screen protector and gap issues that you describe. If you still happen to have the product, please feel welcome to call our friendly representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll set you up with a brand-new FRĒ that we're confident should give you no such trouble going forward!

        Regards,

      Muffled speach

      This review is posted 5/22/18. I bought this case 4/7/18 to replace my otter box defender, come to find out the person on the other end of the line can’t hear me on speaker phone, and my voice is muffled off speaker. Did some research online and found multiple complaints, phone carriers blaming cases, cases blaming carriers. The “solution” was to open the lightning charge port to “uncover” the microphone. I’ve tried opening the lightning port, didn’t help at all, I have to practically yell in the phone for the other person to hear me. Save your money, life proof isn’t what they used to be. The cases for the iPhone 6 didn’t have this problem at all. I’m 28, everyone from my wife, to parents, to customer service reps with companies I order from, to my coworkers all have the same complaint when I call. None of these problems happened with the otter box, I will be switching back, and hopefully trying to return this case for a refund.

      The case is a little more slender that the Otter Box case I had with my old phone. If I am correct, it is made by the same company. For my needs it is easily durable enough without becoming too bulky. It fits well in a shirt pocket if needed. If I was doing work like construction I would have considered a more durable case and perhaps something with a little more grip to it. But this is fine for most everyday/work situations. The case was easy to put on and stays put. The water resistant feature is comforting to have and I hope I never have to put it to the test. But it does look like it will do the job if needed. This was on sale at the time of the purchase but I would have paid the normal retail price if needed. I'm happy with the purchase.

      This is the fourth LifeProof FRE case I have gotten. I got one for my iPhone 6. Then I got one for my iPhone 7 Plus when I upgraded. For my next update, I got the LifeProof FRE case for my iPhone 8. Then, I got one for my friend who has the iPhone 7. We love our LifeProof cases and cannot get enough of them! I ride horses and love the fact that I am able to use my phone even when it's raining outside. I babysit in the summer and have even taken underwater photos in the pool with the kids. These phone case are always reliable and add a fun aspect! The only downfall is sometimes the speakers for FaceTime and phone calls don't work as well because of the coverings, but it is manageable.

      Good case, improved from old life proof

      The life proof case has improved. It is slimmer, smaller, and the touch isn't funny like it was at first. The screen cover feels nice and tight over the screen. The flap that opens up to expose the charge port however, feels loose. I think it could easily flop open if I dropped it in water. The other complaint would be that it's a bit difficult to make the silence button work on it. I had to fiddle around a couple of times to get it inserted correctly. I decided it was worth it becuase it seems like a secure case that will protect my phone. It's crazy when I think of how much a phone costs!

      Doesn’t feel as secure as previous Lifeproof cases

      Prior to this purchase I’ve used Lifeproof cases on my iPhone 4 & iPhone 6. I purchased this case when I got my new phone, and while I still strongly support this brand of case, this iPhone 7/8 Fre version doesn’t seem as sturdy as past Lifeproof cases. The clip for the lightning port unclips very easily. Often when I go to grab it from my pocket it unclips unintentionally. For the most part it’s not a big deal, but I don’t know how confident I would feel taking this phone into the water as I have with past Lifeproof cases.

        Hey there KeithP,

        We're sorry to see that this FRĒ series doesn't seem to be meeting the expectations set by your previous LifeProof purchases! We certainly understand why you would feel apprehensive about this charge port door if it isn't latching securely, and our super-sleuth representatives would love to check it out. Please feel welcome to give them a ring at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll solve this mystery and possibly even send you a warranty replacement, if that's what it takes to get you back to maximum protection!

        Sincerely,

      I ordered not knowing if the aqua/"coral" would go with the rose gold iPhone 7, but it looks seamless! Some of the models have colors with more of a punch that just don't work. More importantly, the phone is entirely covered for total waterproof security and the buttons and touchscreen are surprisingly easy to work with compared to others I've used. The case is lightweight and not bulky at all. It snaps apart fairly quickly and doesn't drive you crazy opening and closing and charging port cover that's near impossible to open. Great buy for the brand and got at an awesome sale price for the holidays.

      Returned after phone died in water

      I followed directions, ran waterproof test and it passed, but when I really needed (submerged in swimming pool by accident), the case failed and phone died. I had to get a new screen and mic and speakers still not working. I thought Lifeproof guaranteed their product, but it turns out that I had to register the product with them. The problem is the product guarantee instruction, including product registration number was not included in the box when I bought it from Best Buy, hence I had no idea how I can be protected when things like this happened.

        Hi zkanon,

        We're so sorry to see that your iPhone drowned while under the vigilant protection of the FRĒ series. We test our products extensively to ensure the best device security possible, but unfortunately, every situation has unique circumstances, especially if the case took any intense impacts before submersion. While our warranty does not extend to the Apple device itself, our friendly representatives would still love to get you into a new LifeProof to ease the sting, even if just a little. Please feel welcome to call them at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll be glad to set this up right away!

        Sincerely,
        LifeProof Customer Service Team lifeproof
