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.

I purchased this case directly from Lifeproof when I got my iPhone 4S in October of 2011. I installed my iPhone directly into the case and have used it daily since then.

This case is indeed very slim for the level of protection provided. The screen protector does not appear to impair the usefulness of the touchscreen. The phone is entirely encased when installed.

The claims made on the site appear to be true, so I won't repeat them here.

There are two cons, however. First, accessing the headphone jack is very inconvenient. You have to unscrew a plug, that can then easily be lost. This also limits the types of plugs that will mate with the headphone jack.

Second, and more annoying is that the port through which you have to plug a iPod cable to charge or sync is VERY tight. If you have any third party cable that is even a tiny bit bigger than Apple's, it won't fit. You'll either need the suggested RadTech passthrough connector or an original Apple cable. If you only use OEM cables, this won't bother you, but otherwise it's quite annoying.

I would have preferred to see an integrated pass-through 20-pin connector built into the case, so you had more flexibility in selecting connecting cables.

Overall, this is a very nice case and provides a very high level of protection. I would purchase it again. I deducted one star for the two cons noted above.

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.

Bought this for my wife's birthday. She followed the lengthy install process to find out the vibration switch wouldn't work. She went to Lifeproof's website and called their product support line. After reading off both serial numbers (one for each side of the case) the operator on the other side informed us that it was Counterfeit. That they'd been seeing loads of them reported recently. All from Amazon!!! WTF!!!?!?

Amazon refunded our money and are investigating the matter. Hopefully they resolve this issue with their bulk supplier before you buy one from here.

Here's the deal. The packaging is 100% exact. It has proper color accuracy and spot varnish in all the right places. It's damn beautiful. The case inside, however is nothing like the one we bought at the store. My wife noticed many immediate differences between the store bought VS Amazon's, such as raised spot edges on the inside of the back half of the case that Amazon's didn't have.

I've been a PRIME member for years, and I absolutely LOVE AMAZON. This will not deter me from using Amazon on a daily basis. It must be a mishap at the supplier level. All of that said, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

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!
