LifeProof case for iPhone 4/4S
Waterproof, snowproof, shockproof and dirtproof; good looking
Chance of user error if case isn’t sealed properly
The LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case is everything other rugged cases are not. It’s hardly more bulky than a ‘normal’ case and looks great, in a range of colours – Pink/Grey, White/Grey, Purple/Black and Black/Black. It’s also water-proof, snowproof, shockproof and dirtproof.
The case is cleverly constructed and features a scratch-resistant screen protector. It seals via a ring of small clips and an O-ring arrayed around the edges. All the buttons are sealed, and there are waterproof and dirtproof covers for the headphone and dock connector ports.
The mic and speakers work well with the case on, thanks to waterproof acoustic vents, and a double-coated, anti-reflective optical-glass lens covers the camera. The case even comes with a waterproof headphone adaptor cable.
Macworld Australia’s buying advice. We had fun submerging iPhones into a fishtank to test this case, and there were no signs of leakage. Given its performance and good looks, we’re taking one up to the snow this winter.
