    Waste of money!

    I bought this on 12/27/17. I have everything that came with the case and my receipt. I tried to register my case with LifeProof but they told me I didn’t need to because it is not a waterproof case! Now my case is falling apart and I can’t get it replaced! I have tried multiple times to go through the LifeProof webpage and because it isn’t waterproof they won’t help me! So their LifeProof warranty is worth 0! I should have bought s cheap case and Judy replaced it when needed rather then trusting this company! They used to be s good company. I had s LifeProof case on my original iPhone and never had an issue with the case or company. But now that they are a big company they no longer seem to care about the product or customer. The rubber is coming off if the case and s small plastic part is missing from area where the port door is. Also people can’t hear me when I talk to them with this case on it so it covers the speaker somehow. I tried to leave an amazon review and somehow LifeProof is blocking reviews of this case. Bad business practice. Please don’t Waste your money.

    Great case, tough installation

    Although I’ve only had this case for a short period of time I already love it. First off, unlike my previous LifeProof cases, this one feels much lighter and doesn’t seem to add as much bulk as the other ones. Now with that comes the sacrifice of the built in screen protection but the case is compatible with standalone screen protectors so that’s a plus. Second, the toggle for the mute switch works flawlessly whereas with previous cases it was sort of hit and miss. The only con I found was the installation. The case is two different parts but it took a while for me to get the pieces apart because I didn’t want to break it by being too forceful. But that was the only difficult part. Once the pieces are apart you just slide the phone in and then snap the pieces together. Another reviewer recommended inserting the phone with the left side going in first and I followed that suggestion thinking maybe that would ensure that the mute toggle would work properly. So if it’s not working for you, try that before you return it. As for the reviewers reporting the case being loose and making sounds of plastic rubbing together I personally did not experience that.

    I love the Life Proof brand and have purchased other cases from them in the past. I like that this case showcases my iPhone product Red but as others have mentioned, it doesn’t seem to stay completely together, particularly the top corners of my case. I had my case installed by the store and I’ve also taken it off and put it on myself; making sure that everything is placed in it correctly and snapped together correctly. Regardless, since the corners don’t stay completely snapped together, dust gets into the case. It’s still a beautiful case. I’m going to play with the case a little more before deciding if I need to contact the manufacturer about the issues I’m experiencing. Such an expensive case that I’m a bit disappointed it hasn’t performed like my other Life Proof cases.

    Needs Patience to Open.

    As soon as I could open the case. I love it. It comes with a little key to open the sides of it, but I still feel I had to get a little brutal with it to open. So I feel very insecure about opening it back up with my phone inside. I enjoy the life proof idea, but the lightning bolt port has a close latch that I feel adds pressure to a cable or dongle, subsequently adding pressure to the port itself. I have sadly had the lightning cable port go dead in previous iPhones, so I’m trying to reduce the stress on the port as much as possible. The case “clicks”, in the terms that because I’ve been brutal to it, there’s some space between the two pieces that don’t exactly align now and it makes noises. Kind of annoying but the safety it brings the phone is superior.

      Hey NMT505,

      Sorry to hear that you're feeling a little hesitant about this NËXT series! Rest assured, the rubber port cover is intended to keep your ports safe from dust and debris when they're not in use, and we're confident that it should not affect your charging cable. What concerns us is the fact that your case is making a strange "clicking" sound, and our friendly representatives would love to rectify this situation with a warranty claim. Please feel free to give them a call at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll send you a brand new case that should provide silent, stable protection going forward!

    Not Worth the Price

    I just bought this case on Monday and returning it to Best Buy today. It was fine as far as feeling and protection (so far for the 2 days that I had it, really about 2.5 stars) However, no one could hear me!! I was hoping that this problem would be fixed with LifeProof cases and that it wouldn't happen to me but it did. Using this case I had to use headphones or put the phone on speaker phone for people to hear. And let's be honest, those are not available options most of the time when a call comes in. The last and best case I had from LifeProof was when I had the iPhone 4S the FRe case and never had any issues with people on the other end not hearing me. The price is way too steep for people to not be able to hear you on a call. I don't know what happened to the quality here but it makes me a bit weary to purchase another LifeProof case again.

    Just got this case today. If you install it following the directions you will not be able to use the mute switch.... You have to make sure the mute lever on the case is flat, then slide the phone in left side first. That was the only way I could get the mute switch to work. Other than that, the case feels great! Buttons are insanely responsive, which is a nice improvement over previous Lifeproof cases. Sound is crystal clear. For those who are wondering, there is a rubber-ish type seal around the camera cutout of the case to help keep out dirt. So far I love the case!!

    I bought this case to pair with my iPhone 8 Plus beacause I liked the clear back, the rubber grip on the sides and the fact that it was a decent protective case in a slim profile and made by a well known company. Probably the best life proof Ive personally owned, a mix in between the nuud and fre. I love that I can use a tempered glass on the front. That said, I'm not sure about some of the materials this case is made with. My particular case's silent switch button is seeming to fail already and I haven't had the case that long and for the price ($70) I expect better quality for a phone case. Im returning mine for something better made.

      Hey there Dro83,

      We're so excited that the NEXT is your favorite LifeProof so far! We completely understand your hesitation at the mute switch, and we apologize that it's struggling a bit. The case does have to be specifically installed for that ringer switch to work seamlessly, but feel free to call our expert representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll go ahead and troubleshoot the problem for you! We're confident that this NEXT can deliver on the quality that you expect!

    Bought in November loved the look of it seemed perfect til about a month ago...the rubber seal on the edge and inside borders just got loose from the plastic border...making the case unusable, for the price we pay for these it is truly unacceptable, under advice of a B.B. employee I will try to contact the manufacturer. Truly for me as I had hope this was the one and only case I needed...using another case for now.
