Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great. Needs to be installed correctly!!!! The case is great. I haven't dropped it yet but don't see how it could fall apart when I can hardly get it apart. The mute switch can be finicky you have to make sure its in place when you put the case on. You also have to re-program the finger print sensor when you install the case. (I find mine sensor works better now). The only con I can think of is you have to get smaller aux cables or an adaptor, head phones are fine its just when you play it through speakers. Oh and don't even think about a docking station but your not 15 years old you can plug in a dang cable. The black is hard to find if you drop it at night I put hi vis tape on mine just in-case I drop it in the bush. July 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Protects the phone but permanently dirty So far I've dropped my phone and had it beat on the wooden table by a toddler, and it hasn't been damaged at all. I took it to the pool and it takes great photos and didn't appear to leak water; however, water tends to collect in the indented space where the camera is, rendering all your photos a big blur if you don't frequently blow on it to clear the water. It takes pretty good underwater pictures though, just not above water without blowing out the water accumulation. It also is a lot less sensitive touching the shutter button with wet hands - it works, but it's faster to use the volume buttons as your shutter button. My biggest criticism of the case is the rubber it's exterior edges are made from. I got the bright pink case (which is much more of a hot pink than it looked like on my computer screen when I ordered it!) and the first couple of days after I'd had it, it had already started to turn grey on every edges and raised place where it's picking up dirt and ink and whatever else and rather than being able to wipe off the dirt, it has been absorbed into the rubber and won't come off. The rubber is also a little scuffed. This is with regular wear and tear over a week or two - carrying it around in my purse, laying it on my desk or notebook at work, keeping it in my pocket. If I'd known how bad it would pick up dirt, I would have chosen a black case. I had the purple/pink and pink/black Otterbox Defenders previously for my older iPhone and they didn't collect dirt like this, but they were a different kind of rubber. I hate to see how dirty the phone will look in a couple months. In terms of usability, I haven't noticed any problem with hearing the person I'm talking to, nor have they had any problem hearing me. The touch screen is less sensitive than it was with a regular non-glare screen protector, and is very shiny and picks up a lot of glare (hard to see outside in the sunlight), but it's usable. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Otterbox is a great product. I like the fact that they have you test it to make sure it is waterproof before you put your phone in it. The only weakpoint was lack of instructions on how to access the connectors at the bottom of the case. July 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wrong product for my needs Beautiful case - the error was mine! a) can't hear an incoming call b) have to take phone out of box to charge. So not really suitable for daily use back and forward to work as a rain-protector as I can't hear any calls and have to manoeuver the phone out of box to charge it at night. But certainly useful if I take my phone swimming! July 13, 2014

No not a chance. It does how ever have a place for a lanyard which you can attach a float to and that will help it float.

The case itself does not float (I know from experience)

I had a lifeproof life jacket I used when I had my lifeproof case. I found the preserver case fit into it perfect. Makes it very bulky but is worth it, if you're around water.

No. You will need an accessory similiar the the Lifeproof LifeJacket. I have not tested to see if the Lifeproof Life Jacket would fit on this case.

No. Will go straight to the bottom. Attach the lanyard and attach a float device. Test before getting near water. Also test the case's water integrity before placing phone inside. Just in case.

A: 
Test it before placing the phone inside it. I'm sure the less you submerge it, the better. Clorine and salt water will eventually ware on the hard rubber and water-tight seal washers inside. Think of the case as insurance, not an underwater case.

Q: 
Whenever the case (and the phone) gets soaked in water, be it the pool, taking a shower, or getting caught in rain, does it need to be taken apart and dried again, or will the seals keep water from gradually seeping in? I don't want to warp the plastic or loosen the seals by constantly opening the case.

A: 
As long as you have done the waterproof test prior to putting your device in there and it came out dry, it will be fine. As you said, opening the case repeatedly can have negative effects on the waterproof seal the case creates. I just pat the outside of the case down when I get out of the pool and this occurs multiple times a week. No damage to hardware, or moisture of any kind has been found in the case.
