    you want the best or the cheapest?

    what phone?

    There are only a few reputable waterproof cases out there; two of which are Lifeproof and Otterbox. A simple internet search would find what you are looking for.

    i use a Lifeproof case for my 4s and really like it. I considered the Otterbox Armour, but could not justify the price vs. function (although I do like the way you can easily remove the phone from this case).

    You are asking in the title the best place to buy and then what is the best because price is important. I am partial to Seidio Obex cases but if you want it for 5S , they don't have one yet and I don't thing anyone does yet. Otterbox might? You are going to ave to call them or go to their websites and just check it out.

    Directly from the Lifeproof Store via their website, in my opinion.

    Shop LifeProof | LifeProof

    After that, the iMore Store.

    To add one more comment about LifeProof they have gotten some rather bad wraps because of the way the screen protector does not want to play nice with the iPhone screen itself. They took it off the market for a while and also while they were bought out by Otterbox. They have new models now but I still would not a waterproof case as I have no need for one. I use Seidio as my choice and while I use their Convert that is not waterproof, They have one that will be available soon for the 5S which is called their OBEX case. Good luck shopping. Let us know how you make out.

    Its wonderful, speaker sounds great and the screen is nice and flush like otterbox products, but like i said thats the 5 case, i cant image the 5s case would differ besides the touch id

    I hear a lot of mixed reviews about this case. I want to pick one up, but for every good review I see a bad one. And they seem to contradict each other. Some say the call quality is good, others say that it is horrible. The Newton rings seem to be a problem with some but not with others. I don't know.

    I just did that. So far, do good. But no one has called me yet so I can't test out the voice quality. Went outside in the snow today with my daughter to tear it out. Worked like a charm.

    I returned it. I didn't like the screen protector or having to unscrew the nob every time I wanted to plug in headphones. Nothing really wrong with it. Just a couple of inconveniences.

    As far as screen protectors go, LifeProof Nud takes care of that. No screen protector. But as far as having to screw headphones in and unscrew them to take them out, that's part of the waterproof game unfortunately.

    I wish the nuud cases came in colors other than black and white.

    I absolutely hated the LifeProof case I had when we went white water rafting last summer...it was such a POS option compared to the normal usage and functionality I was used to with the iPhone 5. I went and checked out the Nuud case, but shortly afterwards the 5S came out, and I just don't see how the Nuud case would be functional if the finger print scanner can be damaged by submersion. Fortunately I have my Go Pro to pull water duties, and I can leave my iPhone safe and sound in the dry, lol.

    Otterbox Armor Series.
    I have to say, i work in a steel factory, and i have my 5s and before that my 5 in an otterbox armor, its big and bulky, but at the end of the day when i go home theres not a speck of dust on my white phone, i will endorse this case anyday!! But when i get home it goes into my lifeproof fre for 5s and i love that as well, the one i had for my 5 was garbage but this one seems to be ok

    The only thing i didnt like about the nuud for my 5 was talking on the phone, granted i dont do it that much, but with that lip around the screen it was extremely uncomfortable for me to hold up to my ear
