    Has anyone tried any waterproof cases that work with the Plus? I have previously had life proof and they were always good for me. I can't find anything at the moment and looking for some advice. I'm currently sing a Spigen Neo Hybrid and while OK, I'd like a little more protection if I'm caught out in the elements.

    If you want a slim waterproof case, you can get the Seidio obex case. The sound output doesn't get muffled, and you have 2 options to get. 1. Case only or 2. Case and holster combo. I'd suggest get it from Amazon. And also there is little to no gap between the screen and the iPhone's glass

    +1. It is a very good waterproof case.

    I returned mine because of the space in the screen protector and the sound was very "tinny" when the volume was up. If they fix that, I would buy again though

    The space in the screen protector is a known "issue", though it can be solved, just not enough information is provided to the users. The "tinny" sound though is a real problem.

    Yeah I've tried squeezing out the air out of mine when I had one and it did work till you got near the home button and then using the space bar became a pain.

    Someone here suggested the Seidio obex case and I haven't had any regrets on the purchase at all.

    Went and picked up a Thule X5 at BB. Put it on and immediately took it off. Speaker was horrible. I did not have any issues with the screen bubbling at the bottom. I will wait for the life proof. I did also pick up a Zagg Pocket Keyboard and I like it a lot. Using it to reply to emails and text mags while watching ALCS. Go Royals!!! (Not looking good right now)

    It seems that these are all Lifeproof knock offs. I was looking and found several that look similar with different brand names. I've always went with brand name cases and have never realized how many case makers there are out there. What worries me is the old adage "you get what you pay for".
