    Defective

    Unfortunately this case is defective. It doesn't properly close (seal) at one of the bottom corners. I put my phone into the case right after I purchased it, in the store as a matter of fact. I only took it off once, 3 wks later bc I was going to the coast and I remembered I never did the water test. I pulled out the instructions and followed them accordingly to open the case and take my phone out and then precedeed with the water test. After the time allotted, I reopened the case per the instructions and inspected it. There was water on the inside of the case and the piece of plastic (that's suppose to be acting as your phone) as well. I dried it off and tried one more time thinking it was just a fluke or something. It happened again. I decided to put my phone back in to the case bc even though it's not water proof, it can at least protect it from getting dropped. Once I began to put my phone back in and started to clip the pieces back into place that's when I noticed that it wasn't properly sealing on of the bottom corners. No matter how hard I try it doesn't close down. My bf even tried and he couldn't get it to close like it should. I spent $60 on this case. I mine as well have just bought a regular case that would have cost me way less. But here I am. I even went to their website right after (which it's been 2 wks now) and put in a claim to send me a new one and I have yet to get a response from them.

    NUUD FOR LIFE

    I am a case collector. As in, I've only had the 7+ since September and have collected well over 30 cases within that time frame. I will say hands down, this is the best case I've ever owned PERIOD. I love the clear back mixed with the mermaid teal (my favorite color). It's protective and unlike the other Lifeproof, you don't have to worry about a grainy plastic screen which leaves a rainbow effect. It truly is dust and dirt proof. As for water, I'm not the type to take my phone plunging into the Pacific or have to text while I'm in the shower so I haven't tested it. The only instance I will be near water will be at the beach taking photos of the waves and then storing it safely away. The only downside I've discovered is the sound. Having people on speaker or playing music without headphones does not sound well but then them hearing me has never been a problem and I rarely have people on speaker phone anyways. The sound makes the case vibrate but it's not nearly enough to deter me. It's extremely easy to clean (a wipe down with Clorox wipes work best) and the buttons are not difficult to push like other reviews have said. The charging port is easy to pop open as well but it feels protected at the same time.The case is slim for a Lifeproof and I don't notice it making my phone any more bigger than it already is since it's a plus regardless. I would recommend a thousand times over.

    I was very skeptical at first- there was no way I wasn't paying over a hundred for a case AND screen protector from the Lifeproof site, especially after reading the bad sound reviews. I got it on sale at Bestbuy and while the product from Bestbuy does NOT include the screen protector, I am very pleased. Let me start off by saying the biggest complaint people had was talking on the phone seemed to be dampened or the quality was bad. I have not had this issue and no one I spoke on the phone has complained of the sound quality. If yours sounds badly- on a regular phone call from either side- call Lifeproof. They have amazing warranties for that stuff. Expect the speaker to have reduced and muffled sound quality just as you'd think a waterproof container would, but it's not unbearable. Pro: Waterproof Shockproof Reasonably bulky Feels secure Normal calls sound fine both ways Cons: HARD to open Speaker/Video/Music sound IS muffled No glass included, unprotected screen A regular screen protector WILL NOT FIT LP Alpha Glass is not sold individually In summary: Phone calls sound fine both ways. Loudspeaker for music or videos is dampened but that's expected. Screen is not secure and regular protectors do not fit. Lifeproof does not sell individual AlphaGlass. For a normal daily usage where my phone is not near water, I will be switching between this and my Otterbox + a normal screen protector. Until LP decides to not be greedy with their flippin fitted protectors. I would NOT pay $120 for this case unless I went out on a lake every day or was near open water regularly.

    I have owned a Lifeproof case on the last three iPhones I've had, and they have all been great. Looking to have something a little different this time around, I tried out the Lifeproof Nuud. Well, I will say that I don't love it. First off, don't get me wrong, it works PERFECTLY. However, the back plastic lid is clear, so you can show off the phone. That's great, except the plastic they used is a softer matte plastic so essentially it's smudge-city. Also, the case was applied 100% correctly, however there is this weird flex in the sides that hasn't ever been on any Lifeproof case I've owned before. Like, I give the phone a squeeze in my hand and there's significant give in the sides. Not the greatest. Since I have had the phone case for over a month, and the receipt is long gone, I haven't bothered going in to try to swap it for one of the other Lifeproof cases, and for what these cost, I guess I'll just live with it for now.

    I was excited to hear they finally released this case and picked it up the first day it was available at my local bestbuy. Case fits perfectly, Touch ID works like a champ and hasn't failed once. They finally figured out the whole audio situation and I can assure you that the call audio on both ends is perfect, and the stereo sound of the 7 plus sounds great! Charging port door feels much better and more stable, it's also larger to allow 3rd party accessories. Obviously the clear back is a fingerprint magnet, but I can easily live with that. The new mute switch is very good and much better then before. The power and volume buttons are however a bit tough to push, but I'm sure with more use they will loosen up a bit. I've had a lifeproof on every iPhone since the 5s, and never truly liked them, and always returned them to the store, but this one is here to stay. I highly recommend this case!

    I really needed a case for my 7 Plus, and seeing how it was on sale for half off at my local store I decided to pick up this one. I don't really have a need for a water proof case (seeing how my phone is rated for IP67 water resistance) I just wanted added security when I spill something on it. I also wanted something smaller than an Otterbox but with around the same level of impact protection. If you plan to use a tempered glass screen protector with it, then it will not fit in the case. Also, audio is muffled for the top speaker. As for the mic, my friends barely notice a difference in quality when I was talking to them. I've used Lifeproof back when I had an iPhone 5, while the case itself looked nice, it was lacking with audio quality. Good to see that they've improved on that.

    Protection with Drawbacks

    This thing is the bullet proof vest for iPhones. It will survive drops and probably submersion in water (I never tested). It accomplishes this fete by covering all the holes... like the speakers, microphones, and power jack. End result? I have to use my headphones to use my phone because no one can hear me because my microphone is protected behind this powerful shield. Also, my headphones are always plugged in, so the little door that blocks water to the power jack was always open, until it snapped off, so it's not really gonna protect my phone from water. I'm cool with that, because I haven't dropped my phone in water. I have dropped it on the ground, and it hasn't broken or cracked the glass, so that part works for sure.

    I received this item in a timely manner as pick up in store. It came with a waterproof tester kit to ensure it’s waterproof. I followed directions and it was free of defects. On the phone it went. Didn’t realize it didn’t come with a tempered glass screen protector so I just ordered one online. The options to scroll up is difficult because of the case part at the bottom. Just roll your finger at the bottom and scroll up motion. The pros outweigh the cons. Had this case on for a month and haven’t had a reason to take it off. No rubber pieces like the competitors so no pieces to get flimsy. I would recommend to friends and enemies. Feel free to ask me any questions. Lifeproof for life!

    Can't go wrong with phone protector case

    I bought this for a friend who was concerned that her phone (iPhone 7 Plus) may get damaged from falls and water dunk. The case is fairly robust and does add bulk to the phone. The water seal on the front is actually a rubber seal that surrounds the screen where the case meets the phone screen edge. We haven't tested the water resistance of the case and I would hope it will protect the phone in case of a drop in the pool or lake. The case feels like it can take a beating and survive which is what my friend hopes for. She's already dropped and damaged several phones before so this gave her a piece of mind considering that the iPhone wasn't cheap to begin with!

    I was very on edge when buying this case! But what I did go to Best Buy and buy one I loved it! The only button that is tricky is the little top left button for silent mode. But that's because I chew my nails so that's my own fault lol The case is tough. I work landscaping and it is good for that. Dirt dust whatever. It stops it. Plastic over the home button and front facing camera are an awesome added bonus. Makes the phone a little wider left to right but feels like you are grabbing the back of your phone because of how thin it is! All in all an awesome case!

    Upgraded to iPhone 7+. Had LifeProof case on my iPhone 6s+. So, thought I'd buy one for my 7+. Overall, love the case and clear back. The back is a fingerprint magnet which is crazy. Volume buttons are harder to push then previous designs. Power button is easy to push though on mine. LifeProof rep on FB said to turn off noise cancellation (settings>general>accessibility, under hearing) per the reason everyone says "they sound muffled or in a tunnel", "people can't hear you." So far, turning this setting off no one has complained. Last resort, is to just open up the charging port trick. Liking it thus far.

    I bought this case when it was on sale for $50. Every one I know with a LifeProof case loves it. However the back of this case scratched easily and the plastic protecting the camera got so scratched up I had to take the case off to get a clear picture. I don't put my cases through anything harsh, just everyday usage. I don't drop my phone except for maybe a couple of times a month. Sadly, this case became unusable due to the scratches over the camera lens after only maybe 4 months tops.

    Very unhappy with this case!

    The case makes it hard to hear others while on the phone, and makes it hard for them to hear me as well. Tried it without the case and speakers work perfect. I almost have to yell while talking on the phone for them to hear me. Also the switch to put phone on silent is hard to use. The music also sounds weird with the case on, like it's going through a tunnel or something. Not sure if mine was defective but I have bought a life proof case for my old phone that did the same thing. Not worth it especially for the price! Can buy a $20 case that will work just fine and not mess up the speaker.

    For my recent trip, I needed a good waterproof case for my iPhone 7 Plus which I could take to the pool. I previously had a LifeProof Frē for my iPhone 6 and have a generally good experience with it. Decided to be a bit more adventurous to try the Nüüd and happy to have made the right choice. It kept the phone internally dry and looks really sturdy. Perhaps the only con was that water can get stuck on the front side camera due to it's depth but is easily solved by blowing on it. This is a great accessory for the upcoming summer.

    After having this case for 2 weeks, I noticed moisture between the phone and the film...I found a crack on the inside part of the screen by the serial number.. I had reached out to Lifeproof warranty online, paid the shipping fee for a replacement...and never heard back from them with a confirmation email. Tried calling..but they're closed for the day. Too much time at stake to deal with this case. I've had Lifeproof since the iPhone 5..it's an okay product(with very few other options for a waterproof case). Considering the quality of this case, the price range should be, at most, $50.

    I have used one of these cases before. I love the fact that the screen is unhindered or clouded by a film from the completely closed cases. (And if you have a pretty colored phone, you can see it through the clear back.) I have dropped my phone in water without any harm to it. I often lose my grip and drop it on various surfaces. (Yes I AM a little clutzy.) I have had this case for about six months and yay! It's perfect through it all just like the one on the other phone did. Wondering why I bought another case? Newer and bigger phone! The other is still in the family.

    I did not like life proof cases in the past but this has been because of them falling apart after a few weeks. I decided to give them another try. We had a family vacation planned and decided to use it for this purpose. When we went to the water park this was maybe submerged for a half hour. At the most. The rest was splashes. When we got back to the room there was water filling the case. It was around the charging port, camera both front and back and behind the phone. I will never be purchasing life proof again. I have given them 3 opportunities and they have failed miserably.

    If your looking for a styling looking waterproof case but don't plan on submerging it often, This is the case for you. The edges around the screen are a bit bulky(due to the waterproof seal) so it makes utilizing the edge of your a bit troublesome. It can be a bit hard to tell if its securely closed/sealed and therefore i did get some water into the case but nothing damaging. I would suggest the full coverage case with the built in screen protector, alot easier to snap on and secure that seal. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU REGISTER THE CASE WITH LIFEPROOF!!

    I purchased this based on previous experiences with Lifeproof cases. This one seems to miss the mark. It protects the phone from life's little mishaps, however no one can hear me while I am talking with them on the phone. The case makes it almost impossible for anyone to hear me using the "speaker phone" option or the "hold the phone up to the mouth" option. With today's phones becoming more and more water and dustproof straight out of the box, I am going to just buy a slip on cover and have the front of the phone open.

    iPhone 7 protection

    They made some improvements since the iPhone 6 case. This one has a better designed flap for covering the charging access. The little liner in the iPhone 6 has fallen out from taking it out of the case too many times. This one seems to be holding better. My only complaint is the color- I'm not a fan of pink or green- so there's the 1st world issue I have. Great sturdy case. I like the fact I can actually touch my glass screen- instead of the fake plastic protector. I like the see through back. I'd like a see through front I think-
