For all-day, take-anywhere protection, the purple Case for the iPhone 4S/4 from Lifeproof makes a great choice. The case has a full IP-68 rating against water and dust, and is designed according to military specifications. It will guard against shocks and impacts to your phone, and remains fully sealed against minute dust particles. You can even take it underwater during trips to the beach or pool. While offering unsurpassed protection, the case itself only adds a scant 1/16" to your phone, so it won't add much bulk when you're carrying it around.

You can feel free to continue using the built-in camera on your iPhone as well -- the case has double AR-coated (anti-reflective) optical glass lenses for unprecedented crystal-clear photo and video quality. Plus, you can benefit from access to all phone features while it's inside the case. The case also improves the bass and mid-frequency speaker response by utilizing the back of the case as a sub-woofer for a richer, fuller sound. To sweeten the deal, Lifeproof has included a bonus headphone adapter and keeper for the headphone jack cover along with this rugged case. The Case for the iPhone 4S/4 is backed by Lifeproof's 90-day warranty and can be extended to one-year by registering the product with Lifeproof.

      I had an otterbox, which was preffered because I felt like I had the most protection for my phone, but it was bulky and with other devices I had to carry for work, I couldn't fit easily into my pocket or bag. The Lifeproof case is much lighter but offers the same protection assurance.

        Comments about Case for the iPhone 4S/4 (Olive Drab Green):

        I bought the life proof handlebar mount for my motorcycle and found out when I received it that it only works with the life proof case. Since I really wanted to use that mount I reluctantly ordered the case and I am not disappointed. This is a very high quality case that offers very good protection against the elements. I replaced my original case from a very well known phone case manufacturer with this case permanently. The price was high but the design and quality are commensurate with the cost. I am very pleased with this purchase.

        Slimmer than an "Otter Box"
        Have to purchase a adapter($25) to use any non Apple after market chargers. Opening is too restrictive for most car chargers.

          Comments about Case for the iPhone 4S/4 (White):

          ... beware of imitations. There are plenty out there and its hard to tell if you don't know what to look for. Lifeproof have some tips for identifying fakes on their website.

          I regularly use my iPhone with the case in the sea to take pics and movies of my young daughter surfing. It got knocked out of my hand once and was in about 5 ft of seawater for about ten minutes till I luckily found it before it got covered in sand. The camera was still running! Since then I got the Lifeproof Lifejacket float which I recommend if you go near water with your phone (it also has a write strap).

          The only negatives are that its not a good idea to remove the phone from the case regularly as this may compromise the seals. Also, you may need Lifeproof's Dock Connector extension to access the 30-pin connector for some devices.

          Comments about Case for the iPhone 4S/4 (Pink):

          I held off buying this case for a while, but I'm happy I finally bought it. So far it's taken a beating from drops, and it still looks new! I live in Colorado and the weather changes here a lot so having this without worrying about ruining my phone is great. I cook and bake a lot also and find it helpful to look up recipes on my phone and not worry about getting it messy with my hands dirty or in school doing lab work.

          I've read in other reviews that a rainbow effect appears on the screen, I did experience that from installation and pressing down on the screen, however I think this may be due to installation itself because when I opened it back up and made sure it was sealed tight, it went away. This may not always be the case for some. The air between the screen and the case itself is minimal and so far did not have any problems with touch interface.

          I also haven't had any problems so far with talking to people - its as clear as not having the case, ringtone is a little muffled though so at times I can't hear the phone go off and is not as clear to hear unless I blast the sound up - but sometimes that also depends on the ringtone used. However, if using your phone as your IPOD as well, playing music directly from your phone itself vibrates on the back side at least in my experience. Music is somewhat muffled but I have opened the end with the charge port and it was fine. This may annoy some people. Having a bluetooth wireless stereo like Bose Soundlink comes in handy with this case.

          The only real issue as some mentioned before, is using the adapter to be able to use headphones, this is kind of a nuisance because there's a possibility of losing the top piece, this is why it comes packaged with a spare. Again, if you own wireless headphones, this will also not be a problem.

          Regardless of a few issues, it is a good investment for protecting your phone.

            I'm an avid fisherman and have lost previous phones to moisture. I've been able to wade in streams keeping my phone completely submerged and not have any leaks or any issues whatsoever. Unlike other durable waterproof cases this case allows me to use all of the buttons and ports without removing the case. Something you can't do with a Hitcase or something similar.

                The fit, finish, and design are all good. Much more comfortable to carry around in pocket than Otterbox Defender.Only complaint is the screen cover does not sit flat on the phone, so you have a slight gap between the phone screen and the screen cover. Kind of odd to get used to, and takes tapping the screen a little more firmly to use, but is not a problem once you get used to it. I have no experience in using it in the elements/rain, so cannot comment on that aspect.

                      I was very leary of this when my daughter told me about it but after I got it for her and acutally seen it I think every parent should buy one for their childs phone or even their own phone. I think the best part about it is that it is water proof and no water will get to the phone and won't ruin the phone. The one thing that she says is a little annoying is that sometimes the screen is hard to push for the phone to work. Other than that she LOVES it!!!

                          It is a little large, but seens to be unbreakable, so you can go to the beach without worry.

                          As the mother of two teenagers, I have had the costly experience of replacing i phone screens, and paying for repairs. This phone case is the answer and I would recommend it to anyone who would like their precious i phone to survive this hectic world. Thank you, life changing.
