Good Case, But Not Perfect

So far I like it. It looks very nice but there's a few things that I don't like:
• Opening Control Center takes a few tries because the front faceplate gets in the way.
• The Mute Switch doesn't easily toggle on and off.
• The 5S fingerprint sensor takes awhile to get used to with the faceplate.
These issues are minor and just take awhile to get used to. Hopefully I won't have issues with this case like some people had with the Lifeproof 4S case. …

I bought the phone and case at the Apple store and the salesman was happy to help me put it together. I like that it also came with an optional screen protector that does not interfere with the functionality of the case.
My 2 complaints/concerns: First, the speaker function sounds just the slightest bit muffled to the person on the other end--but I was told I could still be understood fine, just a little muffled compared to my naked phone. Second, the touch print is a little hard to set-up with the raised faceplate that partially obstructs the button. (I assume they must have had some reason this had to be obstructed in this way--its a little annoying). My recommendation would be to set up the phone and the touch ID before you put the phone in the case. I found that because of the shape of the recess in the cover I tend to put my thumb on the button sideways--so make sure you set up your fingerprint in whatever orientation you prefer for normal operation. I had to delete and re-set to get it to read properly every time--but it works great now. I haven't tested out the waterproof-ness yet, but it looks just as waterproof as previous versions of the case. There is a thin film over the touch button, so water can't get in there either. Overall, great case! …

Great underwater video
Just bought this before a Christmas beach trip knowing the reputation of LifeProof. I have to say, the videos from my iPhone 5s we Just bought this before a Christmas beach trip knowing the reputation of LifeProof. I have to say, the videos from my iPhone 5s were better than what I was seeing through a snorkeling mask. Absolutely amazing case and gives me a lot of confidence. They recommend programming touch before, but I would recommend redoing after in the case because of the spacing.
If using while snorkeling you must get into camera or video before going under as screens don't work in water, but buttons do. Also, keep the phone in motion so the screen doesn't shut off or you will have to float and try to unlock, etc.
Highly recommend, even though it is $90. …

I'd never thought I'd spend this much on a case!
With the purchase of my new 5s in silver, I wanted something to protect it. I wanted the case to be a slim as possible, stylish, a With the purchase of my new 5s in silver, I wanted something to protect it. I wanted the case to be a slim as possible, stylish, and definitely at least show the apple logo and color on the back. After looking at MANY product reviews and then purchasing this case, here are my conclusions:
1) Latch at the bottom: it's hard to open to plug in your charger (for my female fingernails); You need short nails. I did have this tiny eyeglass screwdriver that works great in the tiny space and flicks it open easily. Anything bigger than the tiny eyeglass screwdriver wouldn't be a good idea because it may leave a mark on the hinge somewhere.
2) Fingerprint touch ID function: with the case on it sometimes doesn't read your print. The instructions says to program your print before the case is attached but still the annoying problem persists. I did that. Still the annoying problem persists. But a reviewer said the fingerprint programming works better if you do it after the case is on because the actual button hole size is different with the case on it which will scan your finger as it will actually read in that space. So I deleted my previous finger prints and started a new programming with the case on. I then tested the phone and repeatedly turned it off and turned it on with my finger print. It works so much better now. It very rarely missed my print anymore.
3) Screen protector: while this is optional I don't see why someone wouldn't want to put it on anyways, because they already have this $100 case cover on the majority of the phone anyways. But I have to say if I waited to put it on after playing with the phone features, I had a feeling it would have caused more problems attaching it without any smudges, lint or more bubbles underneath. I lucked out with the first successful attachment of it but could easily see how it could have messed up the moment one lint or something somehow would up underneath it as you put it down to stick.
4) Camera viewing cover: I am not sure how dusty this eventually will get as even with the micro cloth that came with it doesn't get in there that easily to clean it out but I did try careful and it looks pretty clean. We'll see if I ever notice weird spots in any photos as I begin to use it more. I suppose it is no different than taking photos without the case, but at least without the case it is easier to wipe across the flat camera lens and flash to clean the area. With the case it is a recessed area. Just pointing it out but not sure if it will ever be an issue.
5) Clear back: I like the completely clear back concept but not sure how many scratches on the plastic will make the look appear eventually. Already I see a few very minor scratches that are not very noticeable; I only had this for one day and was being careful.
I probably may keep it because at this time I am already getting used it and I can't imagine not having this kind of protection for the latest iPhone. I didn't want anything too bulky so it is better than others. I will just get used to opening the latch with my tiny screwdriver and sometimes fingernail (if not manicured). …

Get the Catalyst instead
I just upgraded to 5S from 4S. I have the life proof case for the 4S and LOVED it. This case for the 5S is ridiculous!
The Cons: I just upgraded to 5S from 4S. I have the life proof case for the 4S and LOVED it. This case for the 5S is ridiculous!
Hard to access keys near edge
Nearly impossible to turn on/off ringer
Cannot (after hours of attempts) access control center from the bottom
Screen protector is more like a lint trap while applying and not protecting the screen at all
Had to use a rounded edge knife (okay, it was a butter knife) to unclasp to charge
Either the case is too small or, well, I'm dumb but I don't have access to the home button entirely, therefore, the finger sensor doesn't work
This kind of makes me want to never take my phone near water or anywhere I'm not near carpeted flooring.
This case is awful and I've always loved Life proof. The only bonus is the back is clear but there's not enough grip to the phone.
I'm active but I'm also clumsy and I don't feel this will protect my phone at all.
I'll be returning this immediately. …

Problem with controls
This phone has great feel and excellent features. However to keep it waterproof, the cover makes it very hard to use some of the This phone has great feel and excellent features. However to keep it waterproof, the cover makes it very hard to use some of the buttons on the side of the phone. For instance, I could not use the switch to mute or turn on ringing at all since the cover makes it impossible to flip the switch up and down.
I think for travel when I need a waterproof phone, this will work well. For everyday use, it doesn't make the grade, especially given the expense. …

Can you use this in the Apple 5s Dock, or does the case have to come off?
- Asked by Lucas J from Anchorage
- Feb 6, 2014
No it will not fit in the dock or in any adapters that don't have a cable extension on the Lightning No it will not fit in the dock or in any adapters that don't have a cable extension on the Lightning end. The connection is about .75cm deeper so unless you have an old dock and can use a 30pin to lightning cable adapter you are out of luck, since I don't see a Lightning to Lightning extension cable in the Store. …

It's rated as water proof down to 2m. In the packet it actually comes with a plastic dummy of the iPhone 5/5S so you can test the seals yourself.
Mine stayed under water for 30 minutes and didn't get any water inside it.
Having said that, Lifeproof does not guarantee your phone if it gets wet inside the case. So I wouldn't voluntarily submerse your device even though the case is waterproof. I think of it more as a safety net - just in case . …
