    Kristin,

    Are you going to perform a water test?

    I suppose I'll have to, although waterproof tests scare the pants off me :)
    I'm sure a company like Thule will do the waterproofing right, however, so I shouldn't be so nervous! Good thing I have AppleCare+!

    I have been watching several of your Atmos X4 videos on YouTube and was wondering if you know anything about the X5? I'm getting the iPhone 6s (my first ever iPhone) and am trying to get the case that best fits my personal needs. I am extremely new to macrumors so please excuse me.

    I had mine for 24hrs. And returned it. I loved the fit. Except for the front screen. Near the home button, there's an air gap that you can't get rid of. And also the sound wasn't muffled at all like the other waterproof cases. But the sound was more a "tinny" sound. When the phone's volume was all the way up.

    If Thule fixes these problems I think it'll be a strong competitor in the waterproof category.

    I don't have the case anymore. It was for the 6S plus.
    The only problem I found was the area near the home button had the most gap that I found. And using the space bar was the tough.

    Aren't you the person in the other thread that asked me about the gap in the screen protector ? All you have to do is run your finger down the screen before you close the port for the power. You keep telling everybody the same thing when a 2 second rub fixes the problem.

    i bought this case today at my local bestbuy (they didn't even know they had it in stock) and i had the same screen issues as you.. then i went to check out their youtube videos, and the trick is to squeeze the air out by pressing the top of the sreen protector all the way down and close the charger port while you are holding down on the screen protector. now the bottom of my screen has barely a gap now.

    granted the screen protector is a downgrade coming from a glass screen protector but i will happily trade it to get a waterproof case.

    Yeah.... I did that. And i had no luck. And I even exchanged it for another one and still had the same problem. Also, at high volume the sound was loud but it sounded very "tinny"

    I went back to the 6S plus revision of the defender case by otterbox. Their screen protector is now flush with the screen and there's no gap what so ever.

    To ultra have you ever tried the seidio obex for the iPhone 6s Plus. I've been threw every water proof case out there. The seidio might be what your looking for. The screen is flush and the sound is almost perfect. The only reason I'm thinking about keeping the thule over the seidio is because the thule snaps together tightly. The seidio may come apart when dropped. If you do try it I would be interested to know how you like it since you have the same opinions on the Thule as I do.

    Best Buy is playing with my emotions right now. They have the x5 available for the 6s+ but still don't have any for the 6s. I'm headed overseas for a couple weeks, still got a naked phone on a count that I ordered the x4 on ebay which was advertised as the new style yet it was the old style, ended up sending it back to the seller and also Best Buy not carrying the x5 for the 6s. Might have to just grab the x3 before I fly out or risk it like I have been doing the last couple weeks.
