Lifeproof Claims iPhone Case is Waterproof, Dirtproof, Snowproof & Shockproof

I have been an iPhone owner for about a year and a half and have had an OtterBox Defender on my iPhone 4 since the day of purchase.
Needless to say, other than the shock resistance, I was unimpressed. I remained using the otterbox however until last week. I am not the most safe person with a phone let alone one made of glass (gorilla glass or not) so going case-less was out of the question.
I am now however, sporting my iPhone 4 with a black LifeProof case. Why did I wait, you may ask. Well one of my buddies purchased this case a few months back. The hour waterproof test was flawless, and on countless occasions I watched him “wash” his case (phone inside).
I wanted to put it through the test without dropping the hefty $80 on what could-have been another “OtterBox”. This case however, has done nothing but impress me and that is what I was waiting for.
The slim design and water tight seal is great. DO NOT remove your phone unless absolutely necessary! The more on/off the case does, the more bent the plastic becomes, thus rendering your case water welcoming.
Also LifeProof recommends after any serious impact/fall/etc. you should disassemble and assess/inspect your case and “O Ring”. The O ring is the most important aspect of your case as that is what creates the water-tight seal.
Don’t get me wrong. I have seen a LifeProof case leak on someone before. However there was unnoticed O ring damage. After contacting LifeProof support, the case was replaced entirely (FREE).
All this said, I give the LifeProof case a 10 out of 10 review rating. Waterproof, Dirtproof, Snowproof & Shockproof all while retaining the sleek and slender design of the iPhone 4. Protection and style all in one.
Don’t knock it until you try it.
