Lifeproof iPhone 5/5s Case – frē | Gear Review

Ideal for any type of adventure, the Lifeproof iPhone 5/5s Case is a must-have accessory that’s equal parts practical and stylish.

According to Lifeproof’s official site, the case is, “Thinner, lighter, stronger and more protective than any case available, frē keeps your iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and drop proof, so you can live LifeProof.” And you do. The must-have cover boasts a high-end 4.3 star out of five rating and with reason: its functional, lightweight and sturdy, and most importantly, reliably delivers what it promises to. Whether you drop your iPhone in water or trek through a blizzard with it in-hand, the confines of the thin case will consistently keep it safe.

The tech-based site continues, “frē protects your iPhone’s brilliant Retina display with an integrated scratch protector, and goes one step further by providing full access to the Touch ID function. No other case on the market offers this level of precision protection and full functionality.

Along with completely operational Touch ID and touchscreen, every iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s feature works seamlessly with frē — camera, flash, buttons, microphones and speakers. The slim profile barely adds to your iPhone’s sleek silhouette and precision lines. And, the clear case back highlights Apple’s brilliant design.”

Featuring an antireflective optical glass camera lens, the cover also makes capturing underwater moments easily possible with a colorful waterproof camera. What’s more? There’s even an enhancement system that lets you capture quality audio, so next time you dive in, make sure to give Clapway a shout-out.

As firsthand testimony for the product, Clapway’s Susan Xu says, “You can use it, but make sure you don’t abuse it, since you can only take it into water so many times. I dropped it on the floor numerous times, no damage, no scratches. The case feels light, so you don’t think it offers much protection, but it works really well.

On its sleek appeal, Xu adds, “I have it in teal and I’ve received a lot of compliments and questions about where I purchased it. If you’re going for subtle-chic, it’s perfect.”

Available in five different colors, there’s a flavor for everyone. And for a lifetime of memories, the $79.95 price tag isn’t too shabby, either.
