    I have both in my possession right now...when I get home I can post a few pics if you'd like.

    The Lifeproof is thinner for sure but after having the Preserver on my phone for a few days I like the feel of it better

    I like my 5S fre, I can put it in my pocket and slide it out comfortably.

    How's the touch screen sensitivity on the preserver? Does touch ID work fine?

    the screen on the preserver is better IMHO compared to the lifeproof. The sensitivity is better for the preserve than lifeproof as the preserver sits just about perfectly flush to the screen, where the lifeproof is raised ever so slightly. I kept getting the newton rings on my lifeproof, though an anti glare screen protecter attached to the phone stopped most of that. Audio sounds better from the preserver also.

    The touch ID works well on both phones, I prefer the membrane that covers the lifeproof home button to the one that covers the preserver but not enough to keep me from returning the lifeproof. Also the headphones I use can't go into the lifeproof with the adapter but they can go into the preserver. I'll post some pics here in a few

    Sorry, couldn't figure out how to have more than one pic doing it from my ipad

    This one shows the home button , only thing I'm not thrilled about, because my OCD lol the button looks a little odd

    I'm also returning this preserver for the Carbon colored case as this pistachio color got very dingy looking after one day.

    I like the Núúd case for the iPhone 5....it just worried me with the screen being exposed and if the screen would degrade over time if exposed to salt water or chemicals in water but just my .02 ... Could be completely unfounded worries

    Also for those who have the fre, do you think there's enough space in the case to accommodate a 0.2mm thin glass screen protector? Im deciding between the Fre and the Nuud

    I just put on my nuud, it's the only experience I have with a water resistant case but it seems GREAT so far :).

    I just picked up a Nuud. It has come a really long way since all the issues with previous models. I really have no complaints yet.

    otterbox is noticeably thicker due better shock protection it offers versus the lifeproof.
