LifeProof iPhone case – all the protection without the bulk and weight
The problem with most of the waterproof and shockproof iPhone cases is they add a lot of weight and bulk to the device. This isn’t an issue with the LifeProof Fre.
In fact, the Fre case is the world’s thinnest and lightest all-protective iPhone case on the market today.
When it’s wrapped around the iPhone 5 it barely feels thicker than the naked device.
And despite its slim and lightweight properties, the LifeProof Fre is still waterproof, shockproof and even dustproof.
The case can be submerged underwater to a depth of up to 2m thanks to its completely sealed design.
The case comes in two pieces – the larger part has full screen protector and a screw-in seal for the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The smaller back panel clicks securely into the larger piece with a final clip locking everything into place and effectively creating a watertight seal.
This seal is also utilised when it comes to repelling dust and dirt.
The LifeProof Fre can even protect your iPhone from snow and ice.
And it can also handle a drop from a height of 2m.
Anyone who has ever heard the terrible sound of their iPhone clattering on the ground after ta drop knows the result could be just a few scratches at best or a shattered screen and back panel at worst.
If your iPhone 5 is not in the Fre case then one or both of these scenarios is likely.
But with the Fre case there’s the physical protection for your device as well as the piece of mind knowing your device is safe and sound no matter what you throw at it.
And all of the buttons and ports are still accessible, as is the camera, flash and the mute switch on the side of the iPhone.
If you want to listen to music and still maintain the watertight seal you can use the included screw in audio cable which can then accept your headphone into the 3.5mm jack on the end.
It’s also possible to charge the iPhone but undoing the clip on the bottom of the case which has enough room for the power cable.
The LifeProof Fre is available now in 10 different colours for the iPhone 4/4S and the iPhone 5 and is priced at $79.95.
