    Hey guys, looking for a water proof case for my 7+. Problem is that I use a tempered glass screen protector and most water proof cases I have seen won't work with a TGSP. Do any of you know of a case that will work?

    Perfect combo and I've tried them all...

    Get a LIfeProof Nuud and order Teqii tempered glass specifically compatible for use with Nuud off Amazon

    Hey Blaine. Thanks so much for the reply. I already have a TGSP. It's a Bodyguardz pure 2. I really like the TGSP I have but would like to find a water proof case I can use with it from time to time.

    I usually prefer to use a minimalistic case like the Spigen Liquid Armor, but would like to find a waterproof case I can use at certain times when I'm fishing or at the beach/pool.

    Have you tried the Ghostek water proof case? I think I read that one might be compatible with a TGSP.

    Well I'll say this as well, depending on screen protector your using, in which I haven't tried, you MAY be able to sand which LifeProof Nuud on with glass on. I had a good experience with TOZO E2E glass fitting with my LP Nuud. So it's possible, especially if for occasional use you speak off. The glass protectors for Nuud literally just cover part of screen that's "visible" so looks goofy to use when not using Nuud.

    Ghostek case I have not purchased for 7+ and the reason is simple... their charge hole is intended for APPLE CHARGERS ONLY. I can't look past that, plus I think they're ugly but that's entirely subjective.

    In my experience, LP Nuud, Dog and Bone Wetsuit, Dog and Bone Wetsuit Impact and LP Fre in that order. Tried all four of them. Built in protector on Fre is arguable borderline horrendous with the newton rings. Both of D&Gs offerings are QUALITY, but as with Ghostek, only allow Apple charger but they're VERY good chargers. Aaron the Ho at Mobilereviews-eh(https://www.mobilereviews-eh.ca) has some very good YouTube reviews of all the waterproof cases I mention. All I can provide you here is my opinion... which is that Nuud is the best of the bunch. Nuud is completely capable of being a daily case; as it isn't as bulky as some of the rugged cases intended to be used Day to day. The glass built into Wetsuit Impact is top notch, if LP Fre used a glass such as Impact instead of film it would be a heck of a case.

    What other questions do you have?

    I received an email from lifeproof today. They have a nuud combo paired with alpha glass screen shield.

    $40 for their glass is ludicrous. Of the 3 LP Nuud compatible glasses I've tried everyone has been identical in appearance, size and beveled edge. Do oneself a favor and buy the $15 Teqii Nuud glass off Amazon.

    Hey guys, I greatly appreciate the replies. I'm looking for a waterproof case that will work with the TGSP I already have. I already spent over $40 on the TGSP I'm using right now, so I'm really not interested in buying another different kind.

    I will not use the waterproof case all the time anyway, so I just need to find a case that will work with the TGSP I already have.

    The Bodyguardz Pure 2 is not an edge to edge TGSP. It only covers the flat part of the screen.

    This is the one I have.

    Would PROBABLY work fine with LP Nuud. Extra thickness around home button sometimes makes it wonky. I've personally ordered these to see if they help with "gap" between home button and membrane--& they allegedly still allow fingerprint to be read while "raising" it up. Hoping use of these and glass will reduce the gap I speak of using glass with a Nuud. The Tozo I mention above worked with home button because glass only .2mm thick instead of normal .2+

    Regardless I'm almost positive a Nuud would go together with the existing glass you have. No idea if it would retain water proofness though.

    I used the nuud briefly, not a fan of the case. I used it with my welkin .21mm glass. Closed and secured just fine

    Since it takes almost a year for a mgfr to come out with waterproof case ( like Lifeproof), and I upgrade every year, I'm finding the best temporary solution...

    A good zip lock bag.

    I'm just curious... what did you not like about the Nuud?

    I have a major OCD about the clear back with scratches and finger prints. Drives me looney

    This was my solution last night LOL. I will however say that back seems to be super hard. Used mine off and on for a few weeks and no scratches that I can find
