There will definitely be times when you need extreme protection for your device. Whether you like extreme sports, like to dive, or are generally just a clumsy person – the Lifeproof Case may be the one you’ve been looking for for your shiny new iPhone 5. The Lifeproof ‘fre’ is a totally sealed unit, meaning it touts waterproof protection up to 6 atmospheric pressure, which means you can do things like take photos using your device underwater. Unfortunately, the Lifeproof isn’t yet perfect for every day usage, but if you need waterproof protection, this is a great one to try. My full video review is below:
As I mentioned in my review, nobody has managed to create a fully functional device that can be used underwater in perfect functionality, yet can still be used in every day situations without annoying the user half to death. The lifeproof certainly touts some pretty impressive waterproof functionality, however the in built screen protector just isn’t effective enough for me to reccommend if you plan to rock this daily.
If you need waterproof protection, pick this up. If you don’t, don’t. That’s what it boils down to, as there’s better options for protection than the Lifeproof, that don’t inhibit the phone so much. The case can be picked up on Amazon for around $80, or alternatively you can purchase it from their store.
