    How is the sound quality? In the past, it was muffled.
    Well this is a waterproof case, so the sound is going to be muffled. There's nothing you can really do about that - it's a compromise you're going to have to make for waterproof functionality. As far as the sound quality goes, I've had zero complaints about sounding far away or like I'm in a tunnel (which has happened many times in the past). The back of the case tends to vibrate a bit when the volume is set to max and sound gets a little distorted (it's extremely rare and I think it has happened maybe 2 or 3 times in the last week I've had the case).

    How is the screen protector on it?
    The screen protector is excellent. It's no Zagg Glass but it's much, much improved over past versions. I had a Lifeproof for the iPhone 5. Around the top speaker there a few plastic pieces on the underside of the front and it caused the case to bulge a bit (which then caused a gap between the phone and the screen protector). On the iPhone 6 version, the screen protector sits very flush. I had one small "oil slick" spot but I used the baby powder trick and it's gone now.


    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    How much room is there from the stock charger? I got some after market chargers and I'm afraid they won't fit.

    No room at all - You must use an apple lightning cable. For some reason this time around they made the cut out to the exact measurements of an apple cable (the 30 pin to lightning adapter doesn't even fit because that's slightly bigger). I have been using an iHome as my alarm and to charge my phone for the last 2.5. I finally docked one of my old iPods for music and have been plugging my phone into the wall again.

    I know that I've made a couple compromises but I really, really like this case. I'm definitely checking out a Nd when they're released too.

    Well at least I can give the wifey my long cords and hijack her oem Apple ones. I will give it a try again. Unfortunately no one in Canada has them so it's direct from their site. Shipping sucks

    Luckily I only have one 3rd party, Belkin lightning cable. I ended up just switching that cable with the one I have in my car to hook up my iPod to the radio. I actually wish I would've thought of this sooner. My iPod has to sit out in a little compartment under the radio - it's hard to see but the white Apple cable is eye catching, the black Belkin cable blends in much better.

    Hopefully you're case makes it to you soon and doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get to you. It's definitely worth every penny. We had some terrible freezing rain (which transitioned over to just rain) all day today. I'm still careful but it was nice being able to continue a phone call/finish a text during the storms today.

    It's the only downfall with them. Expensive shipping. Although once it arrives I think I will be super happy with it.

    Not sure if you've seen me post around here before, but I'm extremely picky when it comes to cases. I've had Lifeproofs in the past and have only used them when it was necessary, never as a daily case. This is the first Lifeproof that I've really liked and want to use everyday. I think you'll be really happy with it. What color did you go with?

    Black, I remember seeing your posts I lurk here a lot but never post. I'm excited the only turn off about the life proof was the murkey sounding speaker port. Which it appears they have fixed. Now it's the waiting game for it to arrive.

    I'm waiting for my case to arrive an honestly it makes me sick to think about how much I paid for it. I held one in the store today and it felt like something I'd find at a local flee market. IMO, they're getting away with charging what they do only because virtually no one else makes waterproof cases. The only reason I bought it is to protect it from sweat while running.

    I also irks me that even though they charge nearly $100 for a case, they can't be bothered to get it too me within a weeks time. I think they shipped it via elderly man on old, broke down mule!

    It only took less then three days to recieve mine. I got it today. Love it so far. Way improved from when I used it with the 4s and 5 model. Man did they improve.

    Still not ballsy enough to put under water yet.

    They sent mine via Fedex smart post. I'm guessing they'll hand it off to the USPS at some point....

    LOL, I ordered it on Jan 1st and its not scheduled to be delivered until Monday Jan 12th! Tracking shows they just now sent the package "info" to USPS. Absolutely pathetic. I should've just bought the thing locally. Coming from a Lumia 920 and I've been trained to not even bother looking for accessories locally

    Finally made it on the 11th. Not really impressed so far. I just don't see $80 worth of case here. I'm also having alot of "try again" messages when attempting to use the fingerprint scanner now. For those that will ask, yes, I configured it before case was applied.

    That's strange, I don't seem to have that issues with mine. It works flawlessly. I don't see the 80$ worth of money in mine either but that will come when it pours down at work and I have a phone that can get soaked.

    Try reconfiguring your fingerprints with the case on. That's what I did and it works great.

    True. I bough it specially to keep out water. I guess if it does that, I got no reson to complain.

    I kinda like that the charging port supports the stock cable so well. Takes the stress off the port should the phone get pulled/jerked while plugged in.

    I got one for $20 with my new 6 today, its better than the 5S one i had, no oil slicks and the sound is good. buttons are all good. Still has the grainy affect with the screen protector but thats the price you pay for full protection. Feels nice to hold. Tested out in the spa in the pool today and all good

    Something I've noticed over the past month. When you put the case on, definitely start with the bottom. You want the Touch ID film to sit completely on the fingerprint scanner without any/minimal air bubbles. When I first got my case only a small circle in the middle sat flat on the sensor now the entire film covers almost all of the sensor. I'd say give it a little time. Mine settled in pretty quickly and most of the air bubbles work themselves out.

    PS - I know someone suggested scanning your fingers after the case is on. I'm pretty sure Lifeproof says not to do that.
