      Keeping my fingers crossed

      I needed a case that is very durable bc it gets dropped daily, and my twin toddlers are not exactly easy on my phone when they get their hands on it. I read a lot of reviews and watched YouTube videos of drop tests on different cases and saw enough to know that this case should work. I’ve always used life proof cases and they’ve proven to hold up well. My iPhone 6 experienced drops every day from varying heights over 2yrs in a life proof NUUD and it doesn’t have a scratch so I really wanted to stick with life proof. After seeing several drop videos and reading reviews I felt somewhat comfortable that it would protect my phone. Aesthetically it’s appealing. I like that it’s sleek/slim, and the colors are nice. I’ve dropped it once on concrete and my phone isn’t cracked or scratched, but only time will tell if it’s super durable. What I don’t like: it did make me nervous that it’s not waterproof (even though I don’t need that feature with the iPhone). I do wish it had that seal along the side of the phone and a little more dust protection. (I really just wish the life proof case that offers dust protection was as aesthetically appealing as this one.) The lip around the face of the phone is almost flush with the screen (especially with a glass cover on) which makes me question how well the screen will be protected. The buttons are very hard to push. The case wiggles a bit.

      I have a iphone 8 plus. I really like the feel and size of the case. I like the clear back. I love that i can now hear a persons conversation compared to my last case. but, it all falls down hill from there. The pressing the buttons is like a medevil torture device. You have to press them very hard to make them work, especially the power/picture button. Also, you need a long finder nail to turn the volume/ringer off. There is no button there just a tiny hole which requires the long finer nail to reach. I really thought I would like it but I almost hate it. I bought it before i got my phone due to iphone 8 plus cases being in short supply where i live. So im stuck with it.

        Hi DARKKNIGHT,

        While it's great to hear that you're loving the design of the SLΛM series, we apologize that you're struggling to get the side buttons to comply! Occasionally, the side rubber on newer cases can be a little rigid at first, but with a little bit of love and some consistent use, the material should start feeling a lot more comfortable. If the tenacity persists or simply becomes too frustrating, please feel welcome to call our reliable representatives at 1-888-533-0735. They'll always do what they can to help!

        Best,

      Slim & pretty

      I love the Aloha Sunset colors and the clear backing of the case. Easy to install on my iPhone 8+. Fortunately, I haven't experienced any accidental drops so I'm unable to provide feedback on its level of impact-resistance. The biggest reason I'd recommend this case is its slim-fit and simplicity. Other brands offering the same level of protection are often bulky and/or have additional plugs that make connecting a charger or other peripherals (i.e., headphones) difficult or impossible.

      Love the colors of the case!

      I got this case in the purple/coral. While I love the colors and the fact the back is clear so that it shows off my phone, I am not thrilled with how hard it is to push on the volume up and down buttons. My case is on secure, but the bottom left corner makes a clicking noise when pushed like the plastic isn’t fitting correctly. I bought the last case my local store had, so I’m not sure if I will be keeping this or returning it, although right now I’m leaning toward returning it.

        Hi allycat49,

        We're sorry to see that this SLΛM series is acting a little tough and relentless! True, while the side buttons on newer cases can be a little rigid at first, after some time and love, they should start feeling more pliable. If the issue seems to persist and you just can't take it anymore, please feel welcome to call our flexible representatives at 1-888-533-0735. They'll bend over backwards to help out!

        Cheers,

      not the best

      first off, I've had a life proof cases before. I was pleased with those. I was hoping to be pleased with this case, but I wasn't. one, dust, and dirt get underneath the case fairly easily. I got the red and grey one, and the gray part got discolored and turned brown very easily in less than a week. I feel like it may be ok for drops, because the build quality seems ok. It isn't waterproof, which I thought al of them where, if water gets on the phone, you have to take it out of the case

        Hey cohnman101,

        We're bummed to learn that your experience with the SLΛM series felt so disappointing! It definitely sounds like dirt attacked your case pretty viciously, and that specific unit just wasn't able to take it. Don’t hesitate to call our dirt-busting representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll be happy to send you a resilient warranty replacement. Additionally, we apologize for any confusion, but the SLΛM case is actually only built to protect your iPhone from crazy drops, which definitely comes in handy! If you have any further questions, please let us know!

        Sincerely,

      Terrible product

      Posted
      Lrey

      garbage!! It’s slim and nice in that regard. I have had it for 2 days and don’t even remember dropping my phone, let alone dropping it hard enough to warrant looking to make sure it was fine. I have never had a cracked phone in the past 10 years of having an iPhone using otter box. Sorely disappointed with this product as I had high hopes for it being slim and comfortable. Easily the Worst decision I’ve made regarding anything to do with phone/accessories!

        Hey Lrey,

        We're so sorry to hear that your iPhone 8 Plus did not survive a fatal fall while under the protection of the LifeProof SLAM. Our products go through an extensive amount of testing so that situations like this can be avoided as much as possible, but unfortunately, every drop has unique dynamics and angles, some of which are simply beyond our control. Although our warranty does not extend to the Apple device itself, we would very much like to send you a new LifeProof, especially in the event that your current one was also jeopardized during the incident. Please feel welcome to call our friendly representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll be glad to further assist you with this.

        Warmly,
        LifeProof Customer Service Team lifeproof

      This case is the best. I have dropped my phone with it on and nothing happened to it thankfully. It’s not too bulky or heavy and really protects the phone. I get annoyed when dust gets under the back part of it but it’s better than having it on the front if it was one of the other cases. I would definitely recommend this case!

      Solid Case - No Screen Protection

      Posted
      Lohms
      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      The case is solid and provides protection for the sides and back of the phone but does not cover the screen. The sides do rise up enough that if the phone was dropped the screen would not likely hit the floor directly. The side buttons (volume, power) are difficult to press in and require a firm push for engagement. Good case but not as good as other past lifeproof purchases.

        Dear Lohms,

        While we're glad that this SLΛM series is keeping your iPhone safe on any drops or fumbles, we apologize that the side buttons are acting a little stubborn! While the rubber material on newer cases can be a little stiff at first, with some time and love, it should start to feel more comfortable. If the rigidity continues or becomes too frustrating, please don't hesitate to call our handy representatives at 1-888-533-0735, and they'll gladly find a quick fix!

        Best,
