    I purchased the Lifeproof case but returned it without installing it.

    First let me say that their claim of "Lifeproof" should be accurate. It will be pretty protected against most of life's accidents etc.

    The problem for me was when I went to read the instructions for installing it, I found that you had to watch 4 or more videos to ensure that you did it right. Each step had to be done just right or it may not work. For instance, it uses an o-ring to ensure it is waterproof to their stated standards, and when you install it they want you to inspect the o-ring and it track to ensure that no dust particles or dirt are on it.

    Since I have several iPhone cases and use different ones for different purposes I thought that this was not the case for me.

    However, ymmv.

    I hate the screen on this case! Mine went back do to the touch screen feel, and all the rainbows on it...

    If you are thinking about getting this case, and removing the screen protector, you might as well just get a bumper, or ANY other case out there...

    I'm have a feeling that if you remove the screen protector, it will no longer be lifeproof.

    This is my first iPhone, but the Lifeproof case has been just fine for me. Admittedly I am on the water frequently, but compared to other protective cases they went out of their way to use high quality optical glass and it shows in amazing pictures. The screen sensitivity is really no big deal at all for me. Yes, there is a slight occasional separation from the glass, but easily disappears by smoothing it once over your thigh, and even if you don't, the screen sensitivity is just fine. It has had minimal effects on the sound quality incoming or outgoing, but it does have some. If you have no reason at all for water or other kinds of significant protection, don't buy it. I don't intend to take it off on a regular basis, and you do need to pay attention to putting it together, but give me a's not that hard. I took mine off, recleaned the screens and put it back on in about three minutes. The videos simply give you some hints about putting it on.
