I bought a grey/clear lifeproof fre case for my iphone 5c. I was very skeptical about getting it because of the negative reviews I've read. But I wanted a rugged case with a slimmer profile. My biggest hesitation with this particular case was the screen shield built into the Fre. I didn't want a pillowong effect or a rainbow effect. As far as pillowing goes, there isn't any. There was a rainbow effect after I put the phone into the case but I read on lifeproofs website to use baby powder to get rid of it. I saw a video on YouTube exactly how to do it. It worked perfectly and there is no more rainbow effect at all. Seriously this case is amazing!!! My phone is now water, dirt, dust, and shock proof. I couldn't recommend this case enough.

I ordered this case because 1) I am a very clumsy person who tends to drop things and 2) I live on an island and am constantly at the beach so I needed something to prevent sand and water from ruining my phone.

Before this case I had always been a devote Otterbox fan but after seeing some of my friends's lifeproof cases I decided to buy this for my new IPhone 5c. The case feels solid when on and seems like it could take a drop. The white on the front is nice and bright, the gray compliments it perfectly and the clear back is wonderful so it shows the color of my iphone. The build it screen protector is nice but does leave a slight amount of space between the screen and the protector. Before putting the case I worried this would annoy me but I quit noticing it after a day or so.

All ports are accessible with the case on. I do not think a docking station would work with this case due to the thickness of it. The cover for the charging port is made out of plastic but is still solid and feels of quality build. The screw in cover for the earphone jack works perfectly and I have already unscrewed it a few times to use headphones and have had no issue. The screw in cover is attached by a little piece of plastic so you will never lose it. The volume, home, and screen on buttons all work perfectly with the case on. I will say that the toggle switch for the ringer is very difficult to use with the case on. This could definitely be improved in future versions of the case.

I did water test the case for 30 minutes before putting my phone in it and had no leaks at all which was wonderful.

The downside of this case is that all the protection affects both incoming and outgoing sound. People have said I sound muffled when talking so I am adjusting to this by talking slightly louder and annunciating my words better. It is annoying however that a phone case hinders the most basic function of the phone. Speaker sound is also quite muffled. If you are looking to use this for listening to music out loud you will probably have to take the case off.

I tested both the front and back cameras with the case on and off and noticed no difference. The flash works perfect and does not interfere with the case at all.

All in all this is a very protective case that trades sound quality for protection. I am happy with my purchase.

these cases are very stream lined and not bulky, however if you have never used them before you would not know that you have to open the bottom clip where the charger is when you are talking , otherwise you are muffled to the caller, once we figured that out no complaints.

This case fit the iPhone 5c perfectly. The water proof feature is great and you can easily access the port for charging.

This is a LifeProof Case (waterproof, shockproof, weatherproof and even dirt proof) they have an excellent warranty with great customer service to match. If you are like me and tend to drop you phone often this case is worth the money.

Great for one year then BAM it broke. So much for being "life proof." I'm a "mature" (read old) phone user. I don't usually drop my phone. Don't drop it in the toilet, drop it in the dirt, go out in the rain with it, etc. but I DO use it constantly outside, in the car and in the house. It has done a good job of protecting my phone from dust, the occasional splashing, being knocked around in my purse and yes, the occasional (but infrequent) drop.
It worked great for 1 year and one month (read: out of warranty for one month) and now out of the blue the top skin has separated from the side bar and there is no way to get it back again.
Additionally, the screen was very dark -- people used to comment on it when they tried to use my phone. And.....the knob that is over the ringer button on the side of the phone is forever turning OFF the ringer, but I can't get it back on unless I pull apart the case and manually reset it. And photo quality? Well it's supposed to be fabulous on an iPhone 5c, but with the life proof covering the lens, my photos, while adequate, were just that. Adequate. A little blurry, a little......not quite to the mark.
So......net/net, for the $90.00 I paid overall it was not worth it. And of course now I can't return it.

Works great, i've dropped my phone in both water and on concrete, and nothing is wrong with my phone. The only problem is that I haave not been able to silence or unsilence my phone without having to take off the entire case, then putting it back on. Overall, the good outways the bad.

The only advice is that the screen scratches easy. I understand the value of having a screen protector, so I have accepted that it will show a little wear.

Bought this for my son. He loves being able to talk on his phone while in the shower. Pricey but safer for phone.
