    Otterbox all the way. Lifeproof just seems too cheap for my tastes. One plastic shell and that's it? I like the fact that it's water proof IF you don't lose those port covers but it's just too flimsy for my liking.

    I like the added bulk of an Otterbox.

    Default Lifeproof Case VS Otterbox

    I got the Otterbox Defender case and so far so good. It isn't waterproof like the Lifeproof case but it does a really good job protecting my phone. I have toddlers who are on my phone constantly and it gives me a piece of mind that they can drop it repeatedly and my phone will be fully protected. The case looks good too.

    Default Lifeproof Case VS Otterbox

    I had to return the Otterbox yesterday. Was reading some reviews and seems that the Otterbox collects a lot of dust that gets trapped between the phone and the case and causes scratches. Of course I didn't want this so I took it back and got a Griffin Survivor. The fit is more snug. You actually have to snap the phone in place and it protects against dust.

    lifeproof saved my 5 from a bad motorcycle accident and never had an issue on sound or screen to cheek issue and no pillow effect

    works great for dust and water.....texting in the pouring rain while people look at you funny is priceless

    Checkout the speck grip. Great protection And less bulk.

    How does the sound on the Griffin Survivor of the caller sound on your end and vice-versa?

    I am waiting for my 2nd replacement case from LifeProof. I really like the case. Just an issue with the "Pillowing" of the screen protector. Otterbox just purchased LifeProof and I hope they can some day resolve the issue.

    Lifeproof all the way! Can take pics from the water (I´m a surfer) and it works well. I´m trying the Incipio Atlas at this moment and it has audio problems, hope incipio support can solve the problem. If it does... Atlas incipio way better than both Lifeproof and Otterbox.

    Life Proof for the past week and working out well.

    Sound a little low, but it's to be expected on a water tight case.. Other then that.. It's solid..

    Open the bottom latch and the sound is better

    ya I realize that, but I rather keep it seal when at all possible... In my line of work....


    But the sound is not that drastic.. It just takes some time of getting used to.

    Did they fix the problem with people not being able to hear you on the lifeproof?

    I have had no sound problems with mine. I just received my replacement case and it is awesome. I noticed they added 2 very small clear rubber rectangular pieces to the back plate of the case (in the middle). When I installed it I had no "Pillowing" on the screen protector. It is flat as can be. I am very happy with the case.

    Everyone can hear me just fine when I use mine. Like John said, I have a problem with the sound being muted but it's acceptable if it keeps me from drowning my phone.

    Im waffling back and fourth between the Defender and the LP... I think for the protection I need, the LP case is what I will be going with..just can't get past the added bulk of the Defender and the silicon case that prohibits taking it out of my pocket...

    Gonna pick up a LP case (for my 4s) on Tuesday...

    What are everyone's thoughts in the new (coming soon) Lifeproof Nuud case? I tried a Fre and wasn't crazy about it. The screen protector pillowed like crazy. I think I got an older generation but wasn't willing to try exchanging it at best buy. The Nuud seems like the perfect compromise but I don't know if I will have the peace of mind without a screen protector.
    Just remember, everything happens for a reason...

    I've had both an otterbox commuter case and a lifeprood for my iphone 4.

    I really loved the otterbox but got a lifeprood for $30.

    The lifeprood was great. I did not like the glare or the "tappy" sound from the lifeprood screen tapping against the iPhone screen.

    Now I have an i5 and I'm going back to otterbox.

    That's exactly what I thought. I was worried about not having an actual screen protector like the frē, but I have a regular screen protector on the phone so I don't know if I would necessarily trust it 100%.

    I have never had a life proof case. But I really want one. But if I had to choose life proof would be the way to go. Life proof is a lot more protective and depending on which otter box your using its a lot sleeker.
