    I like my Fre just wish it didn't have the horrendous screen rainbow effect. That and tried it with glass screen protector and it is all but unusable with glass sandwiched in there as doesn't let FRE protector lie flat.
    Mine only had the newton rings when I have had it in my pocket but they got away quickly 🤷*♀️. I have had other lifeproof in the past that do it though.

    My Fre is pretty bad with the newton rings.

    They're pretty durable. Think of the marks as character.

    What vivosmart case is this you speak of??
    Haha no case. Sorry that was off topic. It's the garmin version of a Fitbit.

    Didn't know they made such. Interesting.

    I'm actually a home health/ hospice nurse, but I do a lot of yard work and have been working with cutting trees and firewood and stuff lately. My vivosmart was scratched by hitting my door jam this morning though

    Ah gotcha. Cool deal. Yeah, I'm super careful with phone but got a Apple Watch at Christmas and already have several scratches on its face

    I've also been working on 2 stroke stuff lately as well so that leather case would be soaked in oil and stuff. Guess it would have a nice patina lol

    I'm pretty sure I have it narrowed down to my Lifeproof in blue and my Casemate Folio. Hoping to add the saddle brown to the stack. On the other hand I'm hoping I can sell the dang ones I have piling up in the closet. I should've just stuck with what's always worked with my phones.
    Was the Lifeproof Black case they sent you better than the original one? Clearer screen ETC?

    You probably have the first release with the grainy screen. Call Lifeproof and have then send you a new case. The RevB's have the clear screens.

    Do I just tell them screen on it sucks or? Is this something they've "publicly" admitted fault for? RevB has less newton rings or?

    Oh I absolutely adore it! I have the original though (almost had it for a year now). It is a perfect accessory to the iPhone. And it's fun matching the cases from  with the watch bands. I have so many! Right now using the white sport band with the white silicone. It looks super sharp!
    Ok. I bought one. I caved. Series 2 black. 42mm. I have no will power.

    Truck, I still have the very original black one we both got with the crap screen protector. I can't get them to contact me about my blue one.

    It appears there is an eBay listing for them at only about $7 after shipping from a Chinese seller. They have it in green and pink.
    Not even lying, I ordered a green one.

    For $6, what the hell. It looks like it's stress relieving and I'm a sucker for green.

    Only way to get results with Lifeproof is to call them. They won't replace the case for newton ring problems.

    Speaking of Newton rings....zero still, minus the tiny one I mentioned.
