Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 333 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Good but not perfect Pros: - Really liked the feel of the case in my hand. It doesn't feel bulky like past otterbox cases I've used. - The touchscreen still works really well through the case screen protector and unlike past otterbox cases, I can use the "swipe up" feature on my phone while the case. - I'm rough on my phones and have dropped mine in the case several times from various heights and not even the case itself scratched. Cons: - The thumbprint scanner is "off and on" with accuracy while the case is on. it's like a bubble of air gets underneath it and it doesn't read well. - The headphone jack only works with a very thin headphone plugs. - Same with the power plug. I bought an Apple Lightning to 30 pin adaptor but it wont work with the case on. Overall, I think this is one of the best cases that Otterbox has made in it's "feel in my hand" but having to take the case off ever time I want to use headphone or charge it is a problem. It would also be nice if they made a belt holder like with the Defender series. I was disappointed it didn't come with one as that's what I use to attach my phone to my motorcycle. September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Preserver Series Great product! Other than the lighter colored rubber attracts dirt quickly (Pistachio to be specific),but if you purchase a darker color that can be avoided. The mute button rarely works with the case on,but there are other ways to mute your phone. If you find yourself looking for a sleek,stylish,waterproof and incredibly durable case this is the one for you!! Thanks again Otterbox:) September 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Would never buy this case again My daughter begged me to get her this case for her birthday. The color is beautiful and the case looks great brand new. But within a week the whole front area of pink starts to fade and absorbs dirt and is a totally different shade a of pink from the back of the case which is made of a different material (hard plastic) which will not fade. It looks so dirty and it can't be cleaned. It's really a shame. Also, the rubber button on the side started to tear from use. Otterbox did send a replacement case for that. They do replace there items without difficulty but this case is just a big disappointment. The material of the front needs to be changed. The front portion of the case faded and got dirty just as fast and looks horrible within a week with this one as well. September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent case! Good looking case! Great fit and finish! Feels sturdy and it's no bulkier than the Defender case. The cover plugs for the speaker, sync cable and headphone jack are tight and secure! I like the fact that the back of case doesn't have the window for the apple logo...good riddance to that! I ordered the glacier white/gray case. It's so much easier spot on a dark surface September 13, 2014

Q: 
Absolutely love this case, but I am stuck using the Defender series as I need a holster/belt clip to wear my phone at work. Would switch tomorrow if you can come up with a belt solution.

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.

Yes, it does work. Apparently they are only making the newer 5s case now which is compatible with both phones.

A: 
It will be waterproof, there is nothing differentiating the 5 from the 5s cases besides some of them have accommodations for the fingerprint scanners(thin membrane of flexible plastic material allows phone to read thumbprint while maintaining waterproof capability.). To answer your question directly, yes the phone will be protected from water. Always water test the case first.

I know a browning buckmark sticker fits on the back rather well. Wounded warriors ought to fit as well.

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