If you are a tradie or work/play near water/beach probably the best case, i haven't got one for my X yet but from reading the reviews the grainy screen is the downfall.
You think they would be able to come up with something better by now, I had one for a 5S on a Bali trip and it was great for that.

Bought two last week. 1 for me and the wife. Groupon is running a special. So far, I'm liking the case. Sound quality is good. The grainy screen that was mention doesn't bother me much. With Lifeproof cases I also turn off noise cancellation under Accessibility. Suppose to help with that 'you sound muffled or in a tunnel'. I just do it in case per a Rep once told me. Good luck! :)

i took off the screen protector i have had on my X since launch. That was painful....lol

i have tried the Fre with the class on and wasn't happy with the bulging. This definitely fits better. Now I just need to see if I can tolerate it :)

How’s the case working with the screen shield off ? I kept mine on with the case but now I’m thinking I may take it off to reduce that pillow effect in th screen .

I returned it. The pillow effect at the top and bottom of the screen or awful. It made the touchscreen very difficult to use.
