LifeProof provided me with a product sample in order to facilitate this feature. Any opinions expressed are my own personal and honest thoughts.
So we finally broke down and got my husband a new phone. While I’d like to think I had a choice in the matter of spending hundreds of dollars on a piece of electronics, I really didn’t because you see, he lost his old phone. He’s been drooling over the new iPhones, so that’s what we went with. My initial worry was that he’d be carrying around a $600 piece of electronics in his pocket all day long. So many things could happen to it; it could get dropped, scuffed up or left where it could get stepped or sat on.
From what little you know about me, you could probably deduce that I am careful with my money. I like nice things and I’ll spend money on them, but I am careful with them and take much care to protect them from being damaged. I’d hate for that shiny new phone to be dropped in a lovely slush filled mud puddle that New England is famous for this time of year. So when I did my research about ways to protect my hubby’s new iPhone, LifeProof was the brand that kept coming up as having hands-down the best cases.
LifeProof makes cases for Apple iPhones, iPods and iPads along with cases for the Samsung Galaxy. LifeProof cases are designed to protect your electronics by being water, snow, dirt and shock proof. What impressed me the most about LifeProof cases is that they exceeded even the military’s requirement for drop protection. I’ve heard many many stories of people dropping their phones and the screens shattering, so that feature was very important to me.
What is also important to me is the overall aesthetics of a phone case. There are other cases out there that claim they protect your phone, but they are somewhat bulky looking, which I hate. I also like to have a choice of color options for my case, which LifeProof offers. They have cases in a rainbow of colors. My husband choice a neutral color case in Dark Flat Earth. Personally, if it was for my phone, I’d chose something flashy like hot pink, but you know—guys. Sigh.
Pretty in pink or not, this case will protect the phone. The LifeProof fre case for the iPhone 5S protects your phone from drops, spills, dirt and even submersion in water! You don’t have to be an adventurer or athlete to appreciate those types of protections. Every LifeProof case is tested before it leaves the manufacturing facility, to ensure that you getting a top notch product. The feature I am quite thrilled with is the shock protection, up to a distance of 6.6 ft. We do a lot of hiking and camping, and having the phone protected by LifeProof gives me peace of mind. You can enjoy life without worrying about an accident like dropping your phone from ruining your entire day. One could even say that this phone case is kid proof since we know children aren’t super careful with stuff. My son loves to play games on my husbands phone and now I am much less hesitant to let him use it now that the LifeProof case is on. Now if they could only add a tether to the case and maybe my husband won’t lose his phone again!
LifeProof cases can be purchased directly from their website or through other online retailers such as Amazon.com and BestBuy.com.
