    I think I'm going to get a LifeProof Nuud for my iPhone 5 here in a couple weeks when it's released. No need to worry about pillowing or "oily" spots.

    Yeah, I think I might take the plunge too. Everything I hated about the Fre had to do with the screen protector. If they can successfully remove that, count me in!

    They have for iPad, my only concern is how do you prove the water tight seal.

    Quick YouTube search, for the iPad Nuud case they give you a plastic screen to put in the case to test the seal with. I'm sold on it then, it's just when I can afford it.

    I have never had a life proof case. But I really want one. But if I had to choose life proof would be the way to go. Life proof is a lot more protective and depending on which otter box your using its a lot sleeker.

    IMO, the LP doesn't have protection against drops. It's a plastic shell and that's it. I inherited my sister's LP after she and the hubs upgraded to the iPhone5 and gave me a bunch of their 4/4s cases. I was not impressed with the LP.

    ​I'd rather have the bulk of a Defender or Ballistics HC than what a LP case provides. I use my LP as the situation warrants it but the rest of the time, it's my OB or Ballistics.

    Your incorrect the life proof does have drop protection as well as shock but to a lesser degree

    As I stated earlier my LP has been personally tested during my Motorcycle accident as well as many hospital bed drop tests

    Well last week I finally went and purchased a LP case for my 4s from Radio Shack. Simply put, I frick'n love this case! No pillow effect, no "oily" screen and no issues whatsoever with sound quality - be in from me hearing people or people hearing me.

    The cons though, which I can only really say one, is that the screen sensitivity seems a bit off, but that's to be expected. It's almost like the original Blackberry Storm with the touch screen/pressy feel to it (if that makes sense).

    Overall, I love the case. I went and ordered two charging cords from LP for $9.99 each...

    I'm so glad I didn't get the Otterbox Defender like I was going to get.

    I have the lifeproof, defender, and survivor for my white iphone 4. I use the defender all the time now. It is the camo one so its easy in and out of the pocket. No problems with functionality at all. The survivor I had to modify the front piece to get the screen to cut off while I was talking on the phone. Plus after a month of use the rubber was looking worn out. It was terrible taking it in and out of your pocket. And it was huge! The lifeproof screen pillowed like crazy. And nobody could hear me when I talked. I also didn't feel like it could handle a drop to well. So for me the defender is the right balance of them all. I still have all of them to switch to when I need them.

    I feel like both these cases are a little over rated. They're bulky and expensive, and I think the otterbox commuter is the most protection you'd need. I have basically a knock-off of the commuter, which is a shocksuit from bodyglove mobile, and it gets the job done.
