Review of Lifeproof fr? Rugged Case for iPhone 5

galaxy s3 covers

 

Conclusion

 

The Lifeproof cases are especially popular for those with active lifestyles and the Lifeproof fr? is a great way to shield your iPhone 5 in many harsh environments. It is definitely a case for those who don’t want to worry about sustaining liquid damage to their expensive Apple phones. Lifeproof manages to make a full body protective case while eschewing the bulk found on the Otterbox model.

Of course having a case like this has some drawbacks such as the need for a headphone jack adapter and inability to use dock chargers, it still has plenty of “pros” to make it a great iPhone 5 case for those adventurous enough to use their iPhone 5 in more hazardous settings.
