    I'm kinda liking the LP, it's just a matter if affording it, $100 on amazon and $80 at best buy, it's a bit tough atm.

    I highly recommend getting a zagg shield and a speck candyshell perfect combo.
    I only recommend the Zagg on black iDevice's it'll yellow around the home button on white iDevice's ... I recommend Steinheil ultra oleophobic for the white ones - have both on my 4S and iPad2 - love them

    I've tried a bumper, speck candy and how have a case crown coming tomorrow.

    So far I didn't like the bumper cuz my aux cable didn't fit. Didn't like the speck because it was too shiny and slippery.

    I prefer matte cases so I hope this new one does the job
    I love Speck CandyShell. My favorite 4S and MacBook cases.

    You might like the non-slippery Speck CandyShell Satin case:

    or even the grip style:

    How are the satin ones? I got regular candyshell and like it but also have 2 grips on back order from amazon once they get them back in stock.

    I love the Grips. I have 2 of them and people are asking me where I got it and what kind of case is it. It is perfect for me.

    Lol, we'll see. Also, did I see a post you made somewhere that you have the Purple LP? if so, when you use it, could I bother you to post a couple of pix of your phone in it - I'd like to see what it looks like. thanks, if you can
    I've been slack on this post. I'll post some shots very soon.

    Tyvm Shooter for posting those shots !! When you look at the case in the store locked away in the security box they put it in, its really hard to get a visual of how it actually looks on the 4S itself. This helped alot
    In all honestly the past 2 days, i've really been considering going LP at least just for the summer months, as i do love my speck cs's as well & wouldnt want to push them aside completely I've even showed (one of)my daughters (who loves purple) the pix of your case, and she's *maybe* thinking about it too. If i buy it, she wants to see how it looks bulk wise on the phone before she invests her hard earned paper into one for herself. What i'll prob end up doing is let her try mine out for a few days to see what she thinks of it before i actually install it to my phone, and then she'll know if she wants one too

    So, now, i just need to decide if i want to invest in the LP & if i'll actually use it because spending $80-85 on a case to sit majority of the time is not a good investment, lol.

    Well, after much thought today, I've takin a drive over to Best Buy to look........and I've walked out with the purple LP. They did have all colors avail. Right now I'm currently doing the 1 hour water test-it's sitting in a pot with a desert plate weighing it down with 40 mins to go.

    Two things I'm concerned with-the first LP I tried - 1) I had a hard time with hearing the ringtones through the sealed case & 2) if my daughter does decide to use this, she won't be able to dock her 4S on the iHome I gave her & taking the LP on/off every night could start to be a real PITA. So now, idk if she'll go for it either, or just give up the dock.

    Well, time will tell, and again I have 30days with BB to return full refund if neither of us like it. worse case scenario, I may just keep it around to use in the summer months when were louging out backyard poolside


    edit: my daugh decided not to use the LP for now, so I went back to check out the pink and decided I did like it better-so I made a color swap !! Pink it is for me

    Pink, I was hoping you would get a LP, so that you can give us the real handson review.
    I have 3 questions already:
    1. is the case slippery in your hands or does it have a texture - non-slippery?
    2. how does the purple faceplate look on the white phone?
    3. Does the flash work - or do you get a purple haze?

    I think your daughter can still use dock without taking case off, which isn't good from what I hear - just needs dock extender.

    If you're worried about docking the LP, just get the extender. They show it on their site, but you can pick 'em up on Amazon or ebay. They work really well.

    Ha ha I told you I'd bring you over to the light!! Just get the dock extender if you wanna use a dock. I have one and it works great. The whole taking the case off thing isn't real good for it. LifeProof says that after 50 openings the waterproofness is compromised so ya wanna take it easy on that. I'm glad you took the chance and got one.

    I'm not using the case as of yet-in fact I've swapped colors and decided to go with the pink instead(doing my 1hr water test now). My daugh decided not to use it as of now-if she wants one in the future we'll worry about it then. So I can answer a couple of your questions,

    1) no the case doesn't have any kind of grip to it-it's a smooth plastic type but not slippery or glossy looking. It's a matte style.

    2) when I put the purple case on her ph it looked nice, just a little white peeps thru. in fact if you go up or back a page you'll see shooters pics he posted of his purple case I changed my mind & decided to go with the pink-I had a BB rep take it out to actually see the case & it's not too pinkie as I thought.

    3) when the purple case was on my daugh's ph we didn't try out the camera sorry. I can let you know how it is on the pink LP if you'd like.

    If you're worried about docking the LP, just get the extender. They show it on their site, but you can pick 'em up on Amazon or ebay. They work really well.
    thanks for this Alli, I did see them on the LP site- so if I wind up needing one, I'll order directly from LP.

    ok, so today I pulled a color swap. :o turns out I do like the pink better. My daugh decided to hold off. I'm doing my water test right now, and il probably install it to my phone tomorrow (or later if I really get impatient, lol)
    I had no idea that there was a 50 opening limit for the case-I must've missed reading or watching that in all the vids for it. I'll def keep that in mind, thanks

    I'm glad I decided to chance this again too. I'm hoping I'll be happy with it this time around than I was the first time

    Imagine, if I put my pink LP on tomorrow and never changed my case again for a loooong while LOL considering I change my candy shell colors on a daily basis:o

    I bought a LifeProof case early last month after I got my 4S and love it. My wife got a 4S yesterday and I convinced her to get one too, in purple (they only had black and white when I bought mine).

    Kinda miss the bare iPhone look though, it's entirely too good-looking to be put in a case. Too fragile to not be be put in one though, lol.

    I just order a SwitchEasy Trim case in red. I've heard good things about SwitchEasy and it looks promising. I have an OtterBox Commuter in Blue/White and it's awesome but I want something a little thinner that will still protect my phone. I also have 2 Incipio Feather's in transparent blue and black and 2 Incipio NGP's in the same colors.
    Ok, hate break up all of the life proof love, but I am curious how case above held up. I have same case in black with no issues, but just ordered a white one. I am having problems finding tpu material that will not discolor in a few days. I am ok with a few months but not days.

    i'll agree 100% with you there Shooter !! That would be awesome AND they could make the front rim and charging port door come in colors--perhaps black, gray and pink !!

    I've also been using my pink LP since Saturday afternoon-i put it on my phone a little while after my 1 hour water test was complete. So far, not bad - i can say tho my one complaint is the sound is muffled--its not as bad as the first LP i tried back in Dec(? or beginning of Jan). But i did miss hearing 2 emails come in today, and i have my sound turned up all the way.

    It also has been weird that i've had the same cover on my phone for the past couple of days....now thats not something i'm use to at all !!

    The sound is a little bit softer but I mean what can you expect from a fully sealed case. I'm glad you like it.

    I have had no discoloration and I have had them since October. Both of them look just as good as the day I bought them. I received my Switcheasy Trim last week and I must say, this case is awesome, it is probably my favorite, with the OtterBox coming in second then my Feather case. It's thin but also protects my phone and also fits in my Seidio charging dock perfectly. Now I'm contemplating getting a second Switcheasy Trim. I am super tempted to run my case naked though. It's a risk but just looks so damn sexy. I have AppleCare and I've never dropped my phone...any of my phones I've ever owned for that matter but I get scared that I will drop it.

    I sold my LifeProof on eBay because FaceTime and speakerphone became unusable, and I rely on those a lot. Then, I couldn't hear people at all even in a regular conversation anymore. I got a warranty replacement from LifeProof and it did the same thing, so I gave up. I need to use my phone as a phone on occasion. haha
