    Good close up pictures of the case, fit, how well touch Id works, slimness would be the things that I would want to know about this case.

    So, I just got it. Don't got my camera to take photos. Will have access to it later. First opinion it feels like a lifeproof fre, but on steroids. It snaps and secures the case and doesn't have any play between the back and the front. Audio appears to be very good sound. Haven't done any voice calls yet. (Will have a call later and try). Buttons have very good feedback. Home button is like the otterbox armor, will take some getting used to, it feels smaller then the otterbox defender.

    I will take some photos later with a otterbox commuter defender and armor for size compares ions. Also a fre and nuud. (I'm a case junkie).

    Doesn't seem to have the proximity sensor issue that plagues these type of cases.

    I'll have more to let you all know later on with some use. And photos.

    Does the bottom close like the armor, i use a jawbone up and with my nuud i have to remove it to sync through the headphone jack, thats what i like about the armor that i dont have to remove the case, i was hoping the preserver would be a great middle ground between a fre and an armor

    Yes it does, exactly like the armour. Just not as thick, it's about half the size of the armour

    Have a question for you about the Nuud. My contacts say they have a hard time hearing me, so I took the case apart and noticed that in the front part of the case (the part that has the home button per se) the little hole for the left speaker and guessing the mic as well, is occluded by a thin rubber seal, probably a production error. In comparisson to the big speaker hole, that has the thin rubber seal and a foam circle above it. Could you confirm if yours has both foam circles around the speaker holes and if your contacts said anything about not hearing you properly?

    I had the exact same problem with my Nd case. After about 2 weeks, no one could hear me. It was awful. I ended up flat out returning the case (after 2 additional exchanges). Supposedly lifeproof says that the membranes are sticking to the speaker grills which cauSes the muffled sound. I tried blowing into the ports with compressed air, I took the case apart and cleaned the inside and even double checked the foam pieces. Nothing would correct the issues (which really bummed me out because that was a hell of a case).

    I recently ordered a Lifeproof Fre on Amazon for $40. For that price point, you can't go wrong (and everyone can hear me). Of course this Preserver case sounds great too!

    Everyone said they had problems hearing me while using the nuud. I ended up going back to a basic case until this one. Everyone seems to hear me just fine. Mine has both foam circles in the case. When installing the case, Put the bottom in first.

    It's probably what I'm going to end up doing. I'm gonna give it a 2nd try today when I return the one I have.

    So,

    After using it for a little of the day. I think in my personal Opinion they have taken the smallness of the lifeproof and improved on it with there innovations. All phone calls were crystal clear, No signs of anyone not being able to hear me. Music and stuff through the speaker is as loud as it is without the case and not being murky. (The murky sound is the reason i don't use the lifeproof, many versions and i have had issues.) The case seems to secure a lot easier then the lifeproof and in a drop I don't think it will open up like the lifeproof. The volume/mute togell switch is not a click like the lifeproof. You will need to look at your screen to see what mode you put the phone into.

    The only real issue i noticed is that my griffin lightning cable does not work at all, as it is just the same as the otterbox armour and only will take the lightning cable.

    Other then this, I give it a 9/10. Seems pretty solid. Unfortunately does not have a belt clip for it, Will have to use a third party case for my duty belt.

    Pictures:

    (Sorry my desk is dirty, I took it next to a otterbox armour, otterbox defender, otterbox commuter, lifeproof fre and a lifeproof nuud)

    Im not too good at reviews, Anyone have questions just ask.. Ill inform when i recieve a reply.

    The two halfs, With also the rear part is a foam, seems to cushion the phone.

    Your're using it with a 5s right? How is the flash hole holding the 5s dual flash? Does it fit properly? How do you secure the case? Does it have a clip like the Lifeproof or it's just a case that has a hard hard seal? Can you give me an example comparing to another case? Like a Nuud (one clip on the bottom), like an Incipio Atlas (one clip in the bottom and one in the top).

    Thanks for the pics! Hope you enjoy it!

    According to some review, there is a ghosting problem with the flash. Can you verify?

    I'm curious about the same thing. Does anyone else have this case in a store near them? Maybe someone with a caliper can get a size for the flash opening??

    There is plenty of room for the second flash, I will go and borrow my friends 5s and see what it looks like.

    I'm using it with a 5, it snaps close on the back very tightly. There is 8 clips on the back cover which snap together to seal it.
