    Lifecase really has to show more images of the case itself. In both of their YouTube videos, it hardly even goes into details about the case and it's appearance. I mean, the website only has front shots of the case and it's not even a real demo. The more pictures they share than the more people will be able to actually consider the case.

    Thats funny as thats exactly what I thought as well. There really isnt anything in the way of descriptive photo's on there, I was trying to watch the videos to even get an idea of what it looked like.

    I hate to be negative but until some of us get this case in our hands, it's just vaporware.

    Wow, nice breakdown, thanks. Im thinking this wont be able to be used with the VZ iPhone tho, judging by that mute area pic.

    It looks to be way too bulky for me personally but I can certainly see why people are excited about it. I really hope they come through because I'd like to see some reviews and some real-world testing. It's definitely an interesting product - now let's see if they can pull it off:D.

    I didn't sense any reluctance when I asked for a review sample myself. They responded that they would be happy to send me a beta unit once production begins in the next couple of weeks and expressed keen interest in what I would think of it. I specifically said that I had a Verizon iPhone too and they said nothing about incompatibility, so I'm ASSUMING that means they will have versions for both phones. I hope so, especially after being disappointed by the Otterbox Defender, I'm hoping this will shine where the Otterbox fell short. We'll see!

    WOW, simply amazing in my opinion if all this is true about it which it seems. Thanks for the videos btw. I'm guessing it's for sale already since these people have it? Anyone else purchased this and have any thoughts on it?

    It seems like a nice case, but I do not think I will be getting one, with the iPhone 5 been a few months away, my otterbox, few bumpers a few other cases will do...

    Now, if the release a version for the iPhone 5 early enough I might pick one up...

    Wonder how they have solved the sealing problem? I honestly can not see this thing working but I guess it must be true.

    I'm on the pre-order list. Looking forward to the release. I have an AT&T iPhone 4, which I'm really happy with, whether they release an iPhone 5 or not this summer, sticking with my IPhone 4. I will give a review once I get mine. May be my final case I own, seems to be perfect for all situations. Having owned an otterbox defender, I won't mind the bulkiness.

    Kewl! Give us the regular rundown on the screen and buttons responsiveness while in the LifeProof case. They give you an ETD yet?

    I'm on the preorder list as well. I don't plan on using it all of the time but when I'm hiking or working outside this looks like the best protection. I hope it is easy to put on and remove. I've done a few excursions where everything I've had in my backpack was soaked despite the fact that everything was in ziplock bags and my pack lined with a compactor bag. Hawaii is so humid and when it downpours everything gets at least damp. My Garmin GPS is water resistant and I've even had that display fog up despite being encased in a ziplock. I just wish it came in purple :)

    While I'm very much looking forward to this case, I'm wondering when we'll start seeing irate customer complaints that their waterproof case isn't waterproof due to some production issue :confused: Really want this case however I'm a bit leery of being the guinea pig. Also wondering if they'll have any sort of guarantee on the waterproofedness of this thing.

    i hear ya, but i cant see it not working, "waterproof" isnt some new idea that was just thought of by lifeproof so why wouldnt it do what its designed to do?
