Product Description

Water proofdust proof fully functional iPhone 4S 4 case that cant take video down to 6.5' under water.

From the Manufacturer

Four-Proof Protection

Keep your iPhone 4/4S protected, connected and part the action! LifeProof lets you live life with your iPhone in hand – running, biking, swimming, surfing, paddling, skiing, skating, boarding, motorcycling, driving, working, parenting and just navigating the hazards of daily life – you’re free to experience and share every adventure, without worry. One of the thinnest, lightest, strongest most protective cases available, LifeProof frē keeps your iPhone 4/4s waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and drop proof, so you can live LifeProof.

Why is LifeProof different?

Fully Functional Protection

frē protects iPhone’s brilliant display with a built-in scratch protector. Every feature and function works seamlessly with frē iPhone 4s case — camera, flash, buttons, microphones and speakers.

360° Protection

A unique point of view and feel. LifeProof frē for iPhone 4/4s cases feature a built-in touchscreen scratch protector that’s so thin and clear, your eyes can barely see it and your finger can barely feel it — but your touchscreen will thank you for it.

Small Size. Full Features

LifeProof frē for iPhone 4s ups the protection game by reducing bulk. Stuffing an amazing amount of technology into a small package is how we make frē for iPhone 4/4s one of the thinnest, lightest all-protective cases available. frē works in perfect harmony with every button, feature and function of your iPhone 4s. All this in a waterproof iPhone case that barely adds to the size of your smartphone, while seriously stepping up its style.

Everywhere. Everyday. Everything

You can wrap a phone in padded plastic and call it protected. We consider each of iPhone’s features, along with the action, adventures and accidents you face daily, and make a case that fits your phone and your world. The protection is actually a byproduct of what we set out to deliver — complete freedom. You never have to leave your phone at home, on the sidelines or in the locker again with LifeProof frē. frē means you can race, train, swim, ski, run, live and relax with your iPhone 4/4s by your side.

Designed to Strict Specifications – and High Expectations

Works with Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s

Every LifeProof case is built to stringent specifications, then tested to ensure maximum protection for your delicate device. The first spec is impact rating MIL STD 810G-516. Cases built to this spec are designed to survive the drops, vibrations and bumps your device encounters day to day. Next is ingress rating IP-68. This international standard for water and dust ingress protection means your LifeProof case keeps water and dust out. And finally, every case undergoes a Water Test at our factory before it’s shipped.

  • Water Proof: submersible to 2 meters for 1 hour
  • Dirt Proof: sealed from dirt and dust
  • Snow Proof: closed to snow and ice
  • Drop Proof: survives drops from up to 2 meters
  • One of the thinnest, lightest, all-protective device cases ever made
  • Built-in scratch protector delivers complete touchscreen protection
  • Complete access to all buttons, ports and controls
  • Great sound output and clarity
  • Anti-reflective optical-glass camera lens

The case broke within two weeks of having it.
Contacted Lifeproof claims and they advised that BOTH of my cases are COUNTERFEIT products due to their fake serial numbers.

Ok. So I read the reviews on Amazon about this case. And despite the concerns, I can assure you this case is EXCELLENT! In fact, my initial reaction to the case was negative. So here we go...

When I opened the box, I was initially disappointed to see two flimsy case pieces that snap together with no instructions! I thought this was a joke. $80 for this? It refers you to a web site where you have to watch a few videos. So, I gave it a shot. The videos are short and helpful. The first video suggests you do a waterproof test on your case for a full hour! I tested mine for about a half hour and I think that is even overkill.

Now the fun begins. You can put your iPhone in the case. This process was very simple. After the case is on, now you feel the full effect of awesome protection. Some reviews said the there was a gap between the front of the plastic portion of the case and the iphone, causing air pockets. That did not occur for me. It was an absolute perfect seal. I actually did this twice, once for my girlfriend, and on mine with no trouble. All the buttons work perfectly.

Now on to usability complaints. Some users complained about significant problems either hearing or speaking into the phone. I will admit the noise level is dampened "slightly." With the phone turned all the way up, the ringtone is still significantly loud. It's not really an issue. But this actually happened to me. My girlfriend's case casued NO sound issues. When I got mine, it was significantly dampened compared to hers. I remember the Best Buy saleswoman told me when I bought my case that it is hardly returned and that one time it caused a muffled sound issue, but they swapped it out with a new one and the problem was resolved. Well... that's what I did. And my second case was perfect.

I already own a white/grey lifeproof case for my iPhone 4s. I ordered this case and after installing it, I could tell it was not a perfect fit like my previous case. This video was very informative on how to distinguish the fakes from the real McCoy.


Reasons why this is a FAKE lifeproof case:
1. Fake case is darker and mud colors do not contrast as much as the original.
2. Fake case has an orange stripe, for the shock proof icon(on the cover), rather than yellow, like the original.
3. Lettering on the sides of fake packaging are dark and nearly impossible to read. Lettering on the original is bright white and easily legible.
4. The fake case has a flimsy screen cover. The case I received did not fit tightly over the iPhone.
5. The fake case feels like plastic, the original is more like rubber.
6. The headphone jack replacement piece in the fake package is cheap and flimsy...the original is more snug and substantial feeling.

Please consider the video and these very valid points!

The Lifeproof cases sold on Amazon at a discount have been found to be counterfeit. Amazon is not authorized by Lifeproof to sell cases as of this date. The serial number inside these cases confirms that they are not manufactured by Lifeproof, and the case does not function or last like the real item, as one might guess. If you want a Lifeproof case, you still have to go to Lifeproof to get it.

Have had this case for almost 4 months, when I purchased with my I-phone 4s and had been fairly happy with it. When I first got my case I did the water test before installing and even dropped in sink full of water to show wife it works. I cleaned the case about a month and half ago according to the company's standard care procedures on their website. This weekend while kayak fishing, I took an accidental swim into the marsh with my phone in pocket. Once I gathered everything back up and re-situated myself in my kayak I took my phone out and realized it is still working, however, 10 minutes later I checked again, and water had gotten past the case and the phone was no longer working. Once back onshore I did an inspection and saw that the leak path was through the seal on the charger port (slight hairline crack). I use my phone normally and do not do anything drastic with it, so am fairly disappointed with the overall durability. I am out $80 on case and $169 to cover insurance deductible from Verizon.

I am not trying to get back any money, and I realize that I am just out of luck since company is not responsible for damaged electronics. Just wanted to get the word out to people. Most of the 5 star reviews I read were from new purchases.

Buy a cheaper case next time and bring a water proof container to bring your valuables in.

My best advice is to "STAY AWAY FROM LIFEPROOF!!!" I actually purchased my case directly from LifeProof via there website. First off, I understand things take time but it took nearly three weeks for the case to get to me. As everyone else, I opened the box only to be a little skeptical at how flimsy the case appeared. I put my iPhone in the case and it felt great having a case that was minus the bulk of most "Tough Cases" and operation of the buttons and touch screen were great. I had no complaints until I made my first phone call with it and noticed the volume was extreme;y low even though I had my speaker volume turned up all the way. Then everyone I call is constantly going "huh", "what did you say", "I can't hear you", etc. Well being in law enforcement it's not always the easiest thing for me to spend $80 for a phone case then throw it in a drawer so I decided I would use it until I had my feel. I found myself refusing to make phone calls with my phone because I was tired of not being able to hear anyone and them constantly asking me to repeat myself because they couldn't hear or understand me.

Well just as I'm nearing my wits end I get the holster/belt clip that I had pre-ordered and it cost me $30. Well I continue to use my iPhone for everything except making phone calls which was really becoming annoying. Well after a long 14 hour night shift of answering calls back to back and having 7 K9 deployments I come walking through my garage and then it happened; my iPhone in it's LifeProof case and holster/clip slipped out of my hand and lands on the concrete floor of my garage.
