Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 277 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Its a good case but if you drop the case once or twice and a while later you get into a pool or the ocean after a whir that your in their water starts to seeping in the case and you can see the water in your, case on your phone. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phone cover When cover is attached it wont sit in a car phone cradle July 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it but yes the vibrate switch is tough I previously had the Lifeproof Fre for my iPhone 5S and I liked it but the screen caused inner air bubbles and was not easily cleaned and the camera would be cloudy. This Otterbox Preserver's screen is WAY better. It is a bit heavier but I like that about it. It's not nearly as bulky as the Defender which I like. It definitely feels like it will stand up to any beating I'll give to it. My only gripe is what others have mentioned - the vibrate/ring switch is stiff as heck and does take some extra effort to switch from one to the other (didn't have that problem on the Fre). The power/headphone ports are stiffer than the Fre as well, but not enough to complain about in my opinion. Sound quality is just fine for me and nobody has complained about me sounding muffled or anything. Bottom line is the protection is there, it's not too bulky and fits well in pocket, good screen protector, camera stays clear. I'm happy with it. July 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great cover overall. I'd give it a 4.5 overall. I bought this cover for the piece of mind my iPhone would be protected from the accidental exposure of water. I put it through the water tests first and had no problem. It's been used around a pool with some splashing. Photos turned out great and no moisture was found inside the case later. I don't find the cover too bulky. Wish it came in more colors. Two minor down falls. The phone mute switch is hard to operate. I have to use my finger nail to get switch to work. I'm concerned how long this will hold up. Second it's hard to activate the swipe of the home button. Especially when the device is actively on. July 23, 2014

Q: 
I have an iPhone 5 and I'm really interested in the waterproof preserver series. I would like to know if the 5s case would fit the 5 and still be waterproof? I looked for just a regular 5 case but it always brings me back to the 5S product.

You can put a WW sticker on the case, but the cases themselves are just shipped with the specified colors at this time.

Answers

A: 
Wouldn't suggest that...it is not buoyant by itself, but there are some foam devices that could be attached to the lanyard, which are sold at marine stores which would suffice if it was dropped into the water. While bulkier, losing an expensive phone, with all your data, pictures, and numbers is not such a great option. Seal Line makes high quality zip lock type dry bags which I have stored my equipment in, and if they are sealed with some air in them, they will float...tested, and works!

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.
