    My obex case finally came in the mail and my first impressions were really good! Over all I'm very happy and I will be keeping it.

    The bad: there are dots on the screen protector that are noticeable I the sun but barely (this is to stop watermarking and it does do that well) the sound is as bad as is to be expected on a waterproof case! The case doesn't snap together perfect the bottom right corner has a small gap but I'll probably just put some electrical tape over it no big deal for me.

    The good: the screen protector is AMAZING I havnt had a Moment's trouble with it! The sound is fine as long as u keep it down about 3 clicks from the loudest it can go. The camera works fine. ALl the buttons work perfect. All ports are easily accessible.

    Just don't open the case to much. After opening and closing it a few times it will not stay closed at all. You might need some duck tape instead of electrical tape. :)

    It didn't stay closed from the beginning I've only opened it twice and I don't plan on doing it any more than that I have a strip of electrical tape about an inch long on the bottom right hand corner and it seems to hold fine plus it's not really noticeable because the case is black

    I say the case will only last about five or six times of installing and removing the phone before it starts falling apart.

    I think I will be sending the case back to seidio, not because I don't like it but because I have a 30 pin adapter on my docking station and the end on that cord is slightly bigger than the actual lightning cable and the adapter doesn't quite fit. This was a real disappointment for me as I use the dock lots. Maybe I'll try the atlas when it comes out if they have a big enough port opening

    Mine didn't close completely either but I just pushed it closed and put electrical tape over it, seems to hold well and nobody has said "why do u have tape on your case?" Yet so it will do fine for me

    Mine is goin back due to the fact that it doesn't snap together right the sound is awful and my 30 pin adapter doesn't fit!

    if it would work, with out a question! This is by far the nicest case there is (-the water proffng).
    If you remove the ring, to close the case properly, works well.
    If you cut the bottom gortex material form mike/ speaker, work well, but than its not water proof, but water resistent :D
