    I have an iPhone 6s and I am thinking of getting a Lifeproof Fre case for it and have a few questions.
    1. Do I need to have the mute switch toggled on or off on my iPhone when I put this case on as I've heard many people have had issues with the mute switch.
    2. Does this protect against steam or very humid places?
    3. The website says it is snowproof, but Apple says to not use the phone in less than 32 degree temperature, so does this case protect against extreme cold too?

    The case would not protect against temp. Not sure about the mute switch. All i can say is I had a life proof case at one point in time and hated it. The screen protector feels awful when using the phone. I could never hear anything and people could never hear me. Not worth it IMO unless you absolutely need it for your job/lifestyle

    Ok, so do you recommend any other case that covers the mute switch and bottom ports because for some reason my hands get very sweaty when I use my phone and sometimes I accidentally touch them.

    1.There's no problem for me about the mute switch with the Frē case on.
    2.The case will protect 6s from humid places.
    3.I've used my 6s with this case on when there's a blizzard at Lake Tahoe area. The phone worked great in the temperature around 27F degree, but most of the time it was in my pocket.

    The mute switch was a problem on older models but it works fine on my 6s. I can't see how humidity would get in the Fre. Cold temps will still cause battery problems.

    I have used a Fre on all of my iPhones. I have briefly tried other cases but always went back to a Fre.

    1. Doesn't matter how u have the switch flipped when applying the case.

    2. As stated, I'm not sure about that one.

    3. It's been about 20 or less here. It protects against cold weather.

    They've fixed a lot of the issues ppl were having with the cases. Hearing is a lot better along with being able to play music, watch a video & the sound it more clear. I'd say get the case.

    Do you think the iPhone 6 Lifeproof Fre will fit the 6s because I am worried if I get the 6 only version the slighlty larger 6s will either not fit or cause problems.

    I worry about those three raised plastic pieces on the back shell scratching/damaging the finish on back of the iPhone.

    Anyone had this problem?

    When you use your phone on the open air and there is a low temperature - you are using that no longer then 5 mins then you keep that in the pocket.
    You need to understand that rest of the time you keep that in the pocket or somewhere else. So no need to worry about the temperature.
