LIFEPROOF FRE Review

 

I was getting bored of my previous case, and its poor build quality meaning that I never truly felt connected to my phone. It was almost like my phone was hidden under some thick treacle. SO I decided to go for Lifeproof’s FRE. Life proof have been around for a few years, and recently merged with Otterbox. So I thought I would take a punt and try it. Waterproofness has never been something I’ve wanted or needed really. Simply shockproofness, however now with all the rain I seem to be attracting I thought The lifeproof is the way to go. (Also cycling and running with it in my pocket-it does get damp from perspiration).

So, it comes in a nice box, with magnetic closure, and upon opening it comes with a host of little leaflet booklets(I don’t read that sort of stuff), it comes with a sticker……nice….but…why? and more importantly it comes with a headphone jack extension. If you look closely it has a screw connection. And as such you can use waterproof headphones. No idea what thats like-listening to music underwater???? Anyways…..

The case

The case is easy to install. Put the phone in the screen, push down, then connect the back panel by clicking it all around-like a good quality tupperware box (Not the crappy clip ones you get now, Im talking 80’s quality tupperware). So it fits in nicely. The touch Id works a treat, the silent/ringer rocker is behind protection, and works a treat. And the lightning port protector is actually engineered to hinge. It doesn’t simply have a bit of rubber hanging off it, to plug the slot. So things look good.

The case feels quite slim in the hand-I guess this is due to its waterproofness, and air pockets aint a good thing. It feels solid, and it feels reliable. The camera has a large crisp opening, and as such the camera won’t suffer from any parallax , or image cut off-to the lay man!

 

Time will tell, but I like it. It seems well built, I like the lime green highlight. I like the port protection. If you have questions-drop me a line!
