    Has anyone gotten a lifeproof case for the 5 recently (like in the last couple of days) and it been worth a sh!t? I read a couple of reviews at Best Buy saying that there were new shipments coming in with updated cases that actually allow the phone to be used like its supposed to (screen protector not an issue/proximity sensor, etc.). Not sure that I believe that or not, but I'm going to take a chance and pick another one up tomorrow.
    Also, the one I bought last had the foam inside instead of the plastic and that was the newest change at that point.

    I ordered directly through lifeproof that way I knew (hoped) that they would send out the latest version. Who knows how long things sit in best buy warehouses. My case has no issues at all. Love it.

    Exchanged one today at best buy. Still same problems. I'm gonna exchange it every two - three weeks until the prob is fixed

    Just picked mine up and installed... Seems to be better for now. Screen protector laying flat and tested proximity sensor/awful noise on a phone call for a couple of minutes. Screen came back on when I pulled away from my ear and it allowed me to hit the end button. Didn't get any noise on that call, but time will tell.

    Also, just took the sticker off the back... Came off easily with no residue left on the case.

    Just tried the Lifeproof for iPhone 5 and its going back tomorrow. Sounds weren't too bad, but the screen is terrible (can't get top of screen to respond to touch) and it completely makes the noise canceling microphone obsolete because it's 100% obstructed. Waste of money!!

    I bought the LP case for my 5 a few days ago. The person on the other end sounded just fine, but I kept hearing a strange humming sound. Also, the speaker quality is awful. I really like the design and love how thin the case is, but I'm returning mine tomorrow. The vibrating of the case while I'm playing music is pretty bad. I was hoping for a thinner option than my Otterbox Defender, but this isn't it. (And it's $86 after taxes? yikes)

    Just got the Lifeproof, everything works fine except the screen protector is a little too raised near the top. It takes a little extra force to get the the touch screen to respond there.

    Is anyone waiting on the Otterbox Armor series waterproof case? I'm waiting to see the product and to see if Lifeproof has any competition

    One observation already, people have a tough time hearing me on a call unless my mouth is right up to the microphone

    I have the LP case for my 4S. Just got this one a few days ago. Was very surprised at the improvement in this case. No sound muffling to my callers. No screen problems. No rattles. I have the red one, and I bought the belt clip as well. I'm not a phone in pocket kinda guy. And I work on commercial dishwashers, so I am always around water. I dropped my old Motorola Q in one once....wasn't good. Happy so far!

    I just received my 3rd lifeproof case in the mail and I am pleased to announce that all previous problems with the case have been fixed! First case I had, had the "pillowing" effect on the top and the bottom of the iPhone, had the high pitched noise come out of the earpiece, and couldn't end a call. I got my 2nd case, still had the "pillowing" effect on the top and the bottom, but not as bad as the first generation. It fixed the high pitched noise and the ability to end a call. The only reason I sent it back was because they sent me the wrong color. Very good customer service. Got my 3rd case in the mail today, and I am pleased to announce this 3rd gen case is much, much better! No "pillowing", no high pitched noise from the earpiece, and can end a call! Slim, sleek, waterproof, dust proof, etc and can fit easily in the pocket. Sound is much better too! Overall a 10/10 for sure!

    I use Lifeproof and I don't have any problems. I dropped it on the ground many times on bike and snowboard, and it is still working 100% in mud, rain and snow. I don't know how it works in deep water, but filming girls in swimming pool no problem.
    For compering and calculating prices (with transport, taxes) I found this useful page: lifeproofcases.bike-park-slovenia.com/where-can-i-buy-lifeproof-case .

    Some of you guys have problems, but for me, it is working as I expected.
