    Default LifeProof case now ready!

    Got word yesterday that the new LifeProof case is available for the Five. It has a glass screen cover instead of the current plastic one. Looks really nice, too bad I sold my Five! Haha

    Nice case. It looks like there would be no way to use the lightning adapter when in the case?

    I am interested in this case for my iPhone 5 but I had the LifeProof on my iPhone 4 and it was an epic fail. Couldn't use my speaker phone nor could I do FaceTime. Too much echo. And the screen was so not sensitive that it was a pain in the *** to use. I wonder if they have corrected these issues on the new cases.

    I am typing this on my old iPhone 4 and have the LifeProof case on it. No problems whatsoever. Has always been good with the case on it. The speaker phone function is a bit diminished but not bad, never had any complaints from callers.

    And yes the new iPhone 5 case does have glass instead of plastic. Verified on the LifeProof website.

    The part that goes over the camera is glass. The actual screen part is plastic.

    I was an early adopter of the original LifeProof case. The case and my iPhone went through 4 Warrior Dashes. I will get the new one for sure!!!

    To be fair, I had one of the first production units out since I preordered it before anyone really even knew about the case. I have heard that the later models got a lot better and LifeProof customer service was always very responsive and helpful regarding any problem I had.

    I may give this new one a try. It was fun to be able to take my phone out in the rain or in the swimming pool.

    The main screen cover is not glass. I was wrong, I looked at the camera cover by mistake.

    Bought one yesterday at bestbuy, put it on the phone and I did not like it. I hear people are saying it's glass screen, no it isn't. It's the same as the 4/4s which is thin plastic. But that's not the reason why I'm returning it. It's because when the phone is in the case, there is a large amount of space between the screen and the case plastic screen that you literally have press it for the touchscreen to respond. And that I didn't like because the point of touchscreen is so you don't have to press the screen to work. Lol

    you absolutely cannot use a screen protector with a life proof case. EVEN IF you were able to install the case on your phone with the glass.t still on, you run the risk of compromising the case sealing completely and that could be a HUGE problem if your phone gets dropped into water, snow. Etc.

    If you plan on using the LP, remove the glass.t and store it somewhere safe so that you can use it again in the future if you chose to do so

    life proof cases are funky like that. After you install the case on your phone, you literally have to hold the phone in between your hands and press out the air. It may come back here and there, but continuing to do so eventually the LP will conform to your phone and you wont have to press out the air anymore.

    (I used to use an LP on my 4S)
