    Not Totally LifeProof

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I guess I'm spoiled with my OtterBox Defender for my iPhone 5 as it has a built-in screen protector which I absolutely love.

    Thought I'd give this one a go for my iPad ... Hey wait a minute, where's the built-in screen protector? I suppose LifeProof thinks there's no getting the screen scratched in this life.

    It's like popping a kid's ballon. LifeProof goes through all the trouble of making this case waterproof, blah, blah, blah, but does NOT bother protecting the iPad's screen with a built-in screen protector. Instead the case seals in the iPad around it's own glass screen. It is what the company terms as, "Nüud". I assumed Nüud meant a super thin, high tech, responsive plastic layer (it got me all excited) for maximum pleasure and protection. LOL. So much for making up new words. The funny part is that there's a clear plastic screen to protect the back of the iPad... And yes, the iPad is installed the right way!

    The case is good, but feel you are really paying for the waterproof feature because chances are you'll never get your screen dirty or scratched underwater.
