    That's a pretty good deal. 25.00, less than I paid.

    Yeah that's even cheaper than I paid with my discount. And you know it's not a fake.

    The Lifeproof is horrible for the iPhone 5....the recipiant that you are talking to on a call is unable to hear you...the sound is too muffled.

    Same here, not an issue, don't really like cases, but this is one I don't mind to much.

    You can also try to blow into the microphone area on the case for about 3-5 seconds to see if it helps any...

    Mine arrived Wednesday and I'm happy with it. Tried numerous calls and have had no problems with outgoing or incoming sound quality. Music is slightly muted but, not enough to bother me. I'm not fond of the screen protector because it doesn't fit like an invisibleSHIELD for example but, works fine. Definitely worth $40 IMHO.

    I have the lifeproof nuud case. I like this one better than the fre case simply because the screen protector on the fre is so terrible.

    Can you use a zagg case friendly screen protector with the Nuud or would I have to remove it?

    I would imagine it wouldn't hurt anything. The rubber gasket that seals the screen has plenty of travel and seems like it has nice room for error. Of course lifeproof states that you should remove any screen protector other than the one that comes with the nuud.

    Yupp I heard some screen protectors can cause trouble with the seal of the Nuud case though... So fellas be careful not to get something thick or tempered glass. Personally, I'm trying the one that comes with the case, if I dont feel good with it I won't worry too much and go as it is without it. Or maybe for those who like I-do-it-myself might be able to cut another screen protector to the exact size of the screen without going underneath the case... Time consuming, but possible nonetheless. Again, this applies to the Nuud case!

    You can use any of the Zagg protectors EXCEPT the Extreme one. I tried it with my nuud and it made it fit a little too snugly when I sealed the case which made. The headphone jack shift a little from the opening

    The bad rap these cases have been getting on either the old or even the new version i would pass at any price. Much better waterproof phone out if you take a look at Ottebox and Seidio especially.

    Didn't hear anything about the Nuud honestly. Regarding the Fre, yes, I've heard stuff.

    We'll see about the new Otter though... I was looking in Youtube and there's an official video of the new case. No official or professional reviews yet

    They're now $50 directly from LifeProof as well. Great deal. I like the Fre much more than the Nuud.

    True, with the in-site coupon code.

    Personally, I think the Fre is ok, but the concept of being able to touch your own screen keeping the waterproof feature is what made me go for the Nuud. That and the improved seals, microphone and speaker holes as well as the audio jack little screw holder.

    Lots of people had problems with the Fre's either the bubbly screen protector, muffled sound or loosing the damn screw from the audio jack hole

    I had problems with the fre cases but I had even more problems with the nuud case, and in a shorter period of time. Don't get me wrong, the concept is amazing but I was a little uncomfortable after the suction area around the screen kept buckling on me.

    I have used a Zagg with the Nuud and it works fine. To me the Fre has a phony look to it with the colored front overlay on the screen. The Nuud eliminates all of that, and is a very solid case. And I have no call quality issues with the Nuud. No complaints from my homeys on the other end. Ok....I don't actually have any homeys. But I really recommend the Nuud.

    I've had zero issues with my nuud. I love the feel of my Otterbox armor case but it muffles sound coming from ear piece and people say I'm muffled as well. None of these issues in the nuud.
