This case provides a fantastic way of protecting your phone and prolonging its useful life. It is simple to attach, and blends so quickly into the background that you forget it’s there. It appears to effectively protect your phone against dangers such as drops, water, dirt, and dust.

I think the case is very functional and helps to protect the phone very well. I also like that LifeProof includes a small plastic tool to help you remove the case from your phone when you want.
