Life proof problems
I have this case for my 4s and I have a issue with the front cover affecting the auto brightness and the general use adapter that allows you to plug the headphones in is not working properly either. When I use the adapter and watch netflix, the voices in the movie will come and go if I move the cable for the headphone and when I use it plugged into my vehicle, I get a excessive amount amount of static and the sound comes and goes when I move the wire around also. (seems to be a problem with the wires) It goes away if I don't use the adapter. Pissed off now!!!
They have a message posted on there website they will replace the front covers for free to who ever purchased one after 10-4-2011 I think. I bought mine from there website on the 14th. Edit: they posted at the time I bought the case on there website that this case was for the 4S. Now they say there are issues.
I have been emailing them with no response, and they are not answering there phones either.
I will post any updates if they even get back with me.
I'm thinking about opening a case with PayPal which I used to pay them. never done this before so I don't have any idea what this will do.
Again, I bought this from them on there website.
Anybody else have this case and having the same issues I am? Any ideas?

I have the same issue. It feels like it was a rush for the 4S case and now they are saying "oh, sorry there are issues" fill this out and we will send you a new front "when we get inventory".
I love the case but the suggestion of turning the brightness up is ok, but if I'm out (which is why I bought this case) I want to do everything I can to save the battery (especially for the price of the case).
I may just return mine as I haven't heard back from Lifeproof yet on my email to them.

I have the Lifeproof on my 4s. I have had sporadic issues with sound quality - some phone calls sound fine, others I can barely hear anything. There is something in the area of the sensor/camera/speaker that has the case slightly and it annoys the heck out of me, but so far the sound is the only thing I've had issues with.
Last night I was texting my mom while my son was in the tub (finding out great-grandma's favorite color so he could draw her a card )and he wanted to know what the messages said. I was carefully holding the phone up for him until I remembered the case I had. I chunked the phone in the tub and said, "Here, go ahead and read it!" The look on his face was priceless, and after that, he was immediately fascinated with my phone all over again (he's 6).
So far, I love the case, but I'm worried about using it as my waterproof camera when I have nothing to anchor it to me. Going swimming with the stingrays in Grand Cayman next month and this thing will definitely slip out of my hands if I can't figure out a way to make a neck or wrist strap for it!

I have the case with the iPhone 4S, in my case is black. Supposedly, I'm supposed to have issues with the light sensor. I don't have any issues, as a matter fact I even turned down the brightness a little because it's too bright. The only thing that I have issues with is the loudness of the speaker when I'm on the phone call. I'm talking about the regular speakers that's on your ear not the speaker phone. But all I did was turn up the volume 2 clicks and everything is fine now.
