I've always preferred to use a case with holster such as the Otterbox (Lifeproof wasn't for sale until yesterday I believe) but disliked that the defender made indent marks on my screen.

With this lifeproof, I can still use the glass TR screen, its so much thinner than the otterbox (a bit taller) and the holster works perfect...

Just peel that little plastic lens off. I have no idea what it does. I took off the one on my case and the one on my wife's case more than a month ago and I haven't had any problems. Without it the screen protector sits perfectly flat against the screen.

This my 'review' considering the fre case.
I'm looking into the screenprotector and sound quality.

Nice video. So you have a antiglare screen protector on the iPhone that sits in the case? If so which one.

No way still using the Obex. if you look at my last post in the Obex thread you"ll see why. I was just curious on the video Jakkejakkejakke posted. Also I see he is using posted noted in the inner back case to keep the back of the LP case rattling. So they still haven't fixed there cases?

So I received my LP replacement case this will make #4 from LP, and I have not installed it yet on my phone. I did look at the screen protecter and it seems really flat and durable, a lot better from what I have received from LP. The one thing that struck me weird and still bothers me is the back that I got was with the glued on plastic clear pieces, but some people are saying the raised black piece is the newest case. this is why I don't really care for LP right now. What is the correct case? Well if I'm up to it later I will post some pic and test the case just to see, but any ways just don't like the inconsistency of LP.

Can confirm that the new color Fre cases have the 5th generation back with the 3 raised higher ribs (No clear blocks) but the fronts are a new 6th generation.

Where Lifeproof used foam blocks to fill in the gaps alone the inside edges of the fronts (5th Generation) are now solid and part of the actual case.

I'll get some pictures up later tonight

What are your first impressions? Screen flat? Call quality?

Have not even had the time to try it yet. The screen still looks wavy though.

The screen is wavy and there are a couple oil slicks. I have not had the chance to do any calls yet. The back and front seem to fit together much nicer then past versions.
I'll do a couple of calls on my way home tonight and see how it performs.

It is an Elago P2 stand. The Elago M2 stand is too short for the iPhone 5, the P2 works perfect.
