Just recieved my Obex case today from Seidio, and all I have to say is WoW! What a difference from the LP case. I know there are a few 4 proof cases coming out, but I wanted to try this one because of the sleek design. They didnt want to take away to much from the thin design of the iPhone 5 similar to the LP case. I have tested the phone against all the issues the Fre had, and NO ISSUES. No buzzing, no echoing, screen protecter is super flush, no oil marks, speaker sounds great, and people can hear me! Here are some pictures I took. The Boxing: Otterbox Defender vs Seidio Obex vs LifeProof Fre Seidio Obex vs Otterbox Defender Seidio Obex vs LifeProof Fre The inside of the Seidio Obex These little dots are what keep the screen from having oil marks. You can see these a little when the screen is on, but not enough to be bothersome. Ports: Phone in the case Check out http://www.seidio.com/obex/ if you want to know more. I will keep everyone updated on how the case does. I am also getting the Atlas when it comes out.
