    LifeProof Case - iPhone 5is rated3.3571out of5by14.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat case, with small inconvenience.This case works very good. It is water-tight and durable yet compact. It is much slimmer than Otter Boxes so it fits in a jeans pocket (I'm not one to use a dorky belt clip). You can leave the case on all the time. I've dropped my iPhone 5 many time with no damage. I've gone swimming with my phone in my pocket. I applied a piece of velcro to the back and I stick it to a Tecmount on my motorcycle handlebars. The case protected my phone though many torrential down pours while on a coast to coast trip. The only gripe I have is that you must use the headphone plug adapter. This is needed to seal out water with it's O-ring equipped jack but still, it's a pain. Not a deal breaker though.

    Rated2out of5byfromI'm returning it.I purchased this phone cover because I abuse my poor i-phone. My current OtterBox Defender cover had a very scratched screen and even a dent on it where a coffee cup landed it from a high shelf! I can't see the phone very well anymore so I thought I would give the LifeForce a try because I have it at work, I ride my bike with it, I run with it, I hike with it - it is basically always in a sweaty pocket and I drop it a lot. Well, I am sorry to say I am not even going to try to use this cover. It seems very flimsy, especially the screen protector. This would never have saved my phone like the OtterBox did. I also don't like the earphone connector. I would lose that in a second. This cover is just not for me.

    Rated4out of5byfromNice strong coverBought to protect phone during vacation, including camping, fishing, etc. Works great. Easy to put on and off phone. Stayed waterproof in a couple of downpours.

    Rated5out of5byfromAWESOMEWOW!!! Hands down the best case I have used! Bought it to go snowboarding this winter so that I would not have to worry about the snow. Today my IPhone dropped in my hot tub and spent 20 minutes at the bottom until I realized it. NOT A DROP OF WATER IN THE CASE!!!! AWESOME!!!!!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat ProductI got the lifeproof case so that I could take the phone on bike rides and to the pool without having to worry about it getting wet with a splash or sweat, or accidentally falling on the ground. I have taken the phone on 20-50 mile rides, pool swims when I forget my workout (and only have it in an email), and into the shower so that I have my own BOOMBOX to sing to. The case is 100% waterproof, the front side is grippy so I leave it face down often so it doesn't slide, and the back is slick plastic so it is easy to take in and out of pockets. The side buttons for volume or silence are easy to press and use. The issue that I had at first was that I couldn't hear the person on the other line, but I got over it quick and have no problem hearing anyone anymore. I also use a Bluetooth sometimes when I am at work. The biggest issue I have with talking is that my ear sometimes hits the speaker phone button and so it switches to that, but it is an easy switch back. The other issue I have is that the waterproof earphones chord is tiny and I have already lost it so I have to order another one from lifeproof and it is $20. Keep a good eye on these things because it is not a good situation to lose them. Sound quality is what you would expect from a waterproof case – not the best, but not terrible quality. I tend to open the bottom charging door when listening to music because it lets more sound escape the case. If I have to leave the door closed I place the phone face down because most of the sound leaves the bottom and the back of the phone. Overall I would recommend this case to anyone because it is skinny, protects the phone from drops, and is waterproof. Many people may have different needs for the case, but the case meets all of my needs perfectly. My needs: -Use near water (if I forget my swim workout paper and have to read it electronically I keep this near the edge and don't worry about it getting wet) -Take it on a bike ride as a my gps computer (don't worry about sweat or dropping) -Take it on a run without getting sweaty -Fit skinny in my pocket / not be a huge obtrusive case -Screen protection -Sing in the shower If you are looking for: -A waterproof case to take it underwater and take video or pictures - this will work but I think you would be better with liquicel or griffin as this case will work but is really only an "insurance policy" for water. Just because you have insurance doesn't mean you are going to crash your car, but if you accidentally do it will protect it – same situation with this case. -Simple drop protection – I think you can get by with a cheaper case

    Rated2out of5byfromDisappointedI purchased this to use with the bike mount so I could use iPhone based mapping/GPS software for bike rides. While the case and bar-mounted holder worked great for that, the overall hassle of the case is not worth the investment. For the intended uses of the case it seems to work well. I got it dirty, sandy, and a little wet (not submersed) without any apparent damage to my phone. However, major problems exist in the design. First is the small, threaded headphone plug. it is smalle and difficult to use with my fat fingers, let alone with gloves. They're tiny and easy to drop. I lost the first one in less that two weeks. Obviously, they know this is a problem since they provide you with a spare in the box which is good, but it seems like some sort of tether would work better. Second, non-apple headphones can only be used with the adapter, which is easy to misplace. Third, the port door broke after only 2 months of daily use. I've been pretty gentle on the case and haven't had any drops or hard landings and the one piece of this case that is designed to be opened and closed regularly broke after 2 months of typical, ordinary use. Not worth it.

    Rated2out of5byfromPoor SoundI bought the case on sale with my dividend check. I need a waterproof case for a sailing trip this summer. The case is waterproof and seems to be shock resistant. It does not appear to be as shock resistant as my otter box. The only problem is that everyone said that I sounded like I was in the bottom of a well and had a head cold. They also kept asking me to repeat myself. As an every day case this stinks, but for a functional waterproof case it is good. I am returning the case, but if nothing better comes out before my trip I will be buying another one just for wet activities.
