    Just got the Lifeproof Fre on sale for 49.00 USD. Couldn’t pass the deal up. I have to say, not sure what they did with the screen protector, but it’s CRYSTAL CLEAR. This was my biggest peeve for the X version last year. It’s actually quite amazing, and I’m glad the biggest flaw with my fave case seems to be fixed. No rainbow effect either.
    Do you have a glass screen protector on and sandwiched in there or JUST bare screen and Fre?

    Just the screen and the Fre. I’ll grab some pics in the morning. It’s settling a bit and I am getting a small spot of rainbow in the bottom corner. Screen is still crystal clear though.

    @felloffthetruck maybe the screen protector always sandwiched in between is our issue *

    So my iPad is the only picture taking device other than my phone, but it shows pretty well. The rainbow did creep back in over night. Still not the worst I’ve seen.

    Got the saddle brown for my XS Max, because I loved the one on my X. It gets a nice look to it with some use, can't wait until my new one is broken in!

    Does anyone have the Taupe leather case? If so do you mind sharing a pic or two? I’m curios to see how it looks as it ages. Thanks...
    I have it. Will send pics tomorrow

    Those streaks on the back of the new one? One reason i gave up on them hard to get one without some sort of fault, some will say that's just leather but they are not all like it. For $79 here they want to be perfect out of the box, My last one was like that they refunded and let me keep it.

    Looks decent, the only time i get a life proof is when i go on a surf trip/holiday where i need full waterproof and all round protection, and its mainly used for photos/video so not too fussed on the screen or oil marks.
    If they were as good as a glass screen protector i would use one all the time.

    Yes it is but I'm fine with it. Once patina forms on it should be better. Perhaps those streaks are due to manufacturing?

    Hmmm.....then not sure if it's standard now.

    Three cases...pretty standard for me. Black Apple leather, white Apple silicone, and Diztronic TPU case.

    Same but I had to hold it at an angle, never saw them before until just now. Patina will cover it up, if I ever notice it again

    I couldn’t even imagine if they figured out how to make it a glass protector. I’d probably keel over. Or at least bring back the Nuud and let us use our own.

    Dog and Bone glass ones are nice; they haven’t released anything for Max yet though that I’ve seen.

    JimmyCase Never heard of it before and my wife bought one and it is amazing. It is a little pricey, but you can find a 15% discount code easily. I Highly recommend it

    My Black Caudabe Sheath arrived, 16 days from US to Australia yikes. It's perfect no rough bottom seam and the right speaker cutouts thankfully. Feels like no case after using the Monarch and Symmetry.

    Got my pair of sheaths; man they sure feel a lot better in hand than they used too. That “rough” feel is nice. Fits great. Really like mine

    Can anyone recommend a good wallet or card carrying case?
    I highly recommend Distil Union. Your cards are hidden until you use the pull tab to get your cards out. I'm not a fan of the cases that have cards exposed, which is a majority of the card cases, partly because I find the cards are hard to take out. I also dislike folio cases because the flap bothers me when I'm using the phone with my left hand, and it gets in the way when I'm trying to take a picture.

    I just ordered mine. Right after I hit the send order I got a message about entering code something to get a 25% holiday discount. Haha. I got 10% off anyway. My cases are kinda of boring color so I am getting the camo green for a little variety. I’m sporting the forest green apple leather ATM and like that color a lot. Look forward to getting it in a few days.

    For those who use skins only. Do you recommend it ? I’m very careful with my phones but the thought of not having a case is intriguing. I sell my phones so I like them to be in pristine condition.

    31 pages to realize how good apple is at design and how good case makers are at ruining said design.
