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.
(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.
