LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s Case

The LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s Case effectively protects against water damage.

The LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s provides unparalleled water-proofing protection.  In fact, I first saw the Lifeproof Fre iPhone 5s while scuba diving.  One of the divers had a LifeProof Fre installed on his iPhone 5s and was using it to take photos of the diving class.

The LifeProof Fre totally seals the iPhone 5, allowing the phone to be fully immersed in water up to 2 meters (6.6 feet) deep without sustaining any damage.

Also, because the phone is completely enclosed, the LifeProof Fre also protects against dust or debris.

The LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s case has good but not fantastic drop and shock protection.  While the LifeProof Fre meets military drop test specifications up to 6 feet high, the case will not sustain drops from much higher and will not survive frequent drops.


The LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s case allows access to all of the iPhone 5s’ cameras, buttons, speakers, and ports, even while the phone is underwater.  Although all of the buttons and cameras are fully enclosed, special glare-resistant plastic allows full function of the cameras and external plastic buttons on the case correspond with the buttons on the iPhone 5s.

Perhaps the most striking feature however is the special membrane over the fingerprint sensor that is tough enough to keep out water but sensitive enough to read fingerprints.

LifeProof’s patented weather-resistant headphone jack.

Also, one of the features that makes LifeProof cases unique is the waterproof headphone jack adapter.  The adapter securely seals with the rest of the case while providing access to the port, allowing use underwater.

Unfortunately, the LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s case does not come with a belt clip.  However, LifeProof does make an optional belt clip that can purchased for use with the iPhone 5s Fre case for $29.95.  For more information on the LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s case belt clip, click here:


The LifeProof Fre iPhone 5s case is the most comprehensive waterproof rugged case on the market.  However, unless you specifically need to protect your phone against water damage, the high price tag makes other options more attractive for everyday drop and dust protection.
