Doesn't sound like their iPhone 5 case is any better, but I haven't tried it (heck, I've discovered that the 5 must stay naked unless, as I said, you're in a bad environment).

    Except for risky jobs or extreme sports or whatever, I can't see why anyone would use this case.
    I've had lifeproof cases on my 4, my 4S and now my 5, you do give up a little bit of speaker quality for music, BUT waterproof, dustproof, and it's amazing, there is nothing better then being able to remove your device when you want to sell it and having it look like it came out of the box the day you bought it, no dust or dirt in the dock connector opening, speaker grilles, nothing.... this case is NOT just for extreme sports

    ever hear horror stories of a phone accidentally getting dropped in the toilet ? someone accidentally spill a drink or a beer on a table and your phone is in its path.... you want the resale of the device to be top notch ? so when you say it's flawless and just like the day it came out of the box.... ? it WILL be... this is the BEST case hands down with very few VERY MINOR cons... that certainly are a speed bump in the road to all the PROS....

    I even installed on my iPad 3 just in case... someone spills a drink on my iPad i highly doubt they'll fork over almost $1000....

    When I had my 5 and the case wasn't out... I hated it lol just my 2 worth

    I bought a Lifeproof case earlier this year in anticipation of doing the Tough Mudder (wanted to take video with my iPhone using a GoPro harness). Though I was paranoid that my phone would be unusable after 13 miles of pure hell (loved it!), the Lifeproof case protected it like a champ - and I have the video to prove it. When I upgrade to the iPhone 5 in a few days (can't wait), I'm definitely getting one for my new toy.

    Yes. For my LP it is.

    Also, I keep getting black appearing on the screen protector part. Like a weird mark that goes away when I take the case off, but keeps appearing when I put it on.
    Like water bubbles between the screen and the case?

    I was very dissapointed with my LifeProof case for my iPhone 5 after liking the 4S's case so much. It messed with the sensor way too much and wouldn't shut off the screen when I was on the phone and my face would always press buttons on the screen. Total waste of money and glad I returned it for my $80 back.

    Default Lifeproof Questions

    I honestly don't understand the issues people are having with the new case vs the old one...I've had both and the one for the 5 to me is just like the old one but sized for the 5. The same issues are present from what I can tell. But like I said earlier, after exchanging mine for a different one at bestbuy it is a lot better, but it was completely bearable to begin with IMO.

    Ive had a lifeproof case in the past on the 4s and I wasnt that impressed. Also, me and a few other friends could barely even hear when the case was on. Callers also said the same thing with us.

    I had it for the 4S and didn't have any of the issues I've heard about them. The 5 case I got the day it came out and had issues upon issues with it. It would pass the water test, but when I put my phone inside there would be water on my phone, the sound was absolutely terrible compared to the 4S version, I gave that to my mom and compared them. It just seemed rushed and incomplete. I returned mine and am much happier without it. I am hoping they fix some of the issues I had with it because I loved my case for the 4S

    does it really waterproof/?

    If you don't buy it from authorized retailer then they will not warrantee the case. Usually too good to be true is just that.

    Exactly...and the fakes look really close to real, so it's possible those with issues had a fake.

    Default Lifeproof Questions

    I have an iphone4s. I bought a lifeproof case back in June - I didnt like it because of the muffled sound and the touch screen sensitivity issue. I returned it. Since then i have watched the reviews on this case and decided i would give it another try since the otterbox wp case isnt out yet and im leaving for Puerto Rico tomm on vacation.
    Amazon.com had one on sale for $40. (Green)Its shipped and sold by amazon so its legit, not a fake - (checked with lifeproof to confirm this) anyway, I hoped that because its the colored case version it would be improved over the last one i purchased. I have not had any problems all day. The touch screen is perfect. No space - it fits snug. No "watermarks" under the screen. The sound is good both when i play music and take a call. VERY happy with the case this time around. There is no foam in the case like I've read in some reviews.
    At that price this case is well worth it! Looking forward to taking lots of pics on the beach and in the rainforest/waterfalls without worrying about the phone getting wet!
    Merry Christmas

    Ditto,
    I'm on the 4th interation of the Iphone 5 case,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,1st two had sound and proximity sensor issues, 3rd and 4th corrected sound but still had proximity sensor issues....Calls to LifeProof is ridiculous especially with the 30 + min wait time on the phone and a customer service dept that doesn't know if their shipping product that is correct or not....... Latest case I recieved directly from them was on 12/21 with same issues......I'm done since their quailty with this case is dreadful.....Thumbs up on the 4s device but I'm tired of calling and emailing a company that continues to just swap product.

    Do the LifeProof cases at BestBuy have a 'version' number on the packages or something?

    Not that I've seen but I'd suggest getting one with the highest serial number you can...I did that and got an updated one.

    You can't and should not alter the iPhone Life Proof screen cover on Version 1.

    ​The new Nuud case does not have a screen cover.
