Yeah, I would say about 80% of the time I can't get the Control Center to work with the Nuud. I didn't realize how "bad" it was until I took the phone out of the case to try it without a case. Blah.

Volume while calling has never been an issue for me. The volume and quality of the speaker for music/alerts/speakerphone is definitely degraded, but no more so than any other waterproof case I have used.

Yes, no complaints unless I wasn't holding the phone's mic right near my mouth.

I applied but removed it. Didn't care for it, but it was fine as screen protectors go. If you (or anyone for that matter) is concerned with scratch protection, I'd just recommend getting the Fr.

I Love this case! However, I hate the slippery back, provides no grip whatsoever. I put the back from the fre back on it and got rid of the nuud back I don't care if it's not recommended, it definitely needs better grip. I also tried a Belkin screen protector under the nuud, the case did snapped closed. I removed the screen protector and used the one provided. the seems on the sides appeared tighter, I'm talking a fraction of an mm. If they add a back with more grip then this case is perfect!

Got the Fre for FREE from AT&T and absolutely hated it for daily use. It lasted about 1 hour on my phone. The nuud rocks and been using it happily for 2 weeks with no issues what so ever.

On the Nuud how do you prevent the screen on an i phone from being accidentally scratched or is this even a problem?

You could use the included screen protector

I have square trade insurance so I could care less if the phone gets exposed to water or scratched up. I still use the screen protector to help it in case of drops and my son using it heavily. Either way more than likely before the end of 2 years I will be using the insurance at the genius bar to get a fresh replacement and have square reimburse me for the cost.

I got the same email. I'm still pretty happy with my iPhone 5 Nuud case with my 5S, but touch ID would certainly be nice. I'm just not sure I'm ready to go back to the Fre with a screen protector just to get touch ID. I think I'll hold out a little while longer for a 5S Nuud.

Just an FYI, I just installed a MIME featherweight .015mm glass screen protector on my 5c and then put a Nuud case on. Works fine, better screen sensitivity than my old plastic screen protector. Only thing to be careful of is when putting the phone into the front of the case, angle it in and push towards the bottom before lowering the top down. If you are not careful the gasket that seals along the bottom of the screen can roll. I did it a second time and got a perfect seal when I snapped the back on.
So, a full glass screen protector in a Nuud case. Added a Lifejacket and going fishing with music tomorrow!

Smile screen protector

The nuud just comes with the plastic screen protector which still scratches easily so I think people are deterred from the case for that reason. Not using any protection on the glass was too scary for me!! I found a glass screen protector at Teqii.com that fits right into the opening of the nuud case so it doesn't interfere with the seal on the case at all. So far, so good!!

That would still freak me out! I have the Fre and I find the screen protector to be non-invasive. I would certainly like to try the Nuud out....just not on my iPhone just to be safe at first
