Just got a 5S fre so not in the market, but wonder how the clear back cover will go and the home button looks like it is covered a bit?

The whole "no screen protection" doesn't do it for me, If I buy a waterproof case I do it so it also protects my screen and no screen protection just makes me rethink.

Just placed my order. With 15% off I decided to bite. Also picked up a holster and a window suction mount along with the water protection plan. I'll post pix when I get it.

Nice, i am using one of these with my new Fre in the car, works with most cases too. I just ordered the life proof jacket for my surf trip to bali soon. Wish i could of got the belt clip at $7.95 but they don't post to Australia from the US store.

"- Voice calls do sound muffled
- Edges wore slightly after daily use
- Silent switch is tough to use while case is on
- Call quality suffers when case is wet
- Priced $10 higher than LifeProof"
where are you getting all that from?

Yeah that was my thing to; the lack of a holster option is what decided my choice for me sounds silly but I need that option.
Yeah, i just ordered the belt clip and the life jacket.

This thread is about the Lifeproof cases. Let's keep in on track.

If you missed out on the Black Friday sale, lifeproof is offering the exact same discounts for Cyber Monday.

Finally picked up that armband for $10.

:: grr:: I signed up to be notified when the 5S Nuud case was available and I got no email. Glad I happened to see this thread, though, and get my cases with the 15% discount.

I couldn't quite bring myself to spend the extra money for 2nd day shipping, so I'll be looking here for reviews while I'm waiting for mine to arrive. I also picked up a belt clip for my wife and two windshield mounts for the cars

Sadly those emails seem to always come after sites like these post about them.

Every case has its good and bad, you just have to decide if you can put up with the bad. I don't like lifeproof headphone but i rarely use them so no problem.
You are right, it depends also on your pet peeves. I like a case that works the way its described. Lifeproof works for me so far, and I might get this one too, I don't know.

One thing I can tell you, I don't like Otterbox. Dislike their materials.

I didn't mind the defender for a while, I got the new Lifeproof 5S Fre case as the nude won't be in Australia for a while and i go to Bali in a week, its going great so far, was used to a screen protector as i had the defender and for my trip i think it will offer better protection. Might try the nude later on. They are a good thin case bit longer but thinner than the defender. The new ones have a nicer rubber feel to the top half of the case, the back seems the same.
Got a belt clip and life jacket too. Wish we could of got the Black Friday sale here.

Here's a tip, after being in water you will need to blow the water out of the mic hole or people can't hear you on a call. Just found out after taking a photo of my pool outlet to take to the pool shop. Probably old new if you have had a waterproof case before.

I've always taken good care of my phones using mostly minimal cases but now that I have a ~1.5 year old... I need a "baby proof" phone for unpredictable circumstances. my biggest concern with the nuud is if or not to use the "screen protector" that comes with it.

I had a powersupport for my 4s and it was great but when I took it off for the last 6 months before my battery melted and killed my iphone... I never had any screen issues since I'm careful not to keep my phone in pockets without keys/grit/etc... I feel like with the lifeproof, I might be a little more careless which is why I'm getting it.

what do you all think of the lifeproof nuud screen protector from the 5 model? practical? a waste? don't bother? use it? use this instead?

thanks! great thread.
