Lifeproof - Cheap cases
I ordered in August, and since I live in India (the shipping chargers were an additional 40-50 dollars besides the actual price) I had a friend buy it for me in the US and send it to me.
When I received, the colour was wrong. We asked for a green, and they sent a blue Even the invoice said green, but I was holding a blue in my hand! Since I thought it would be too much of a hassle to get a replacement with the right colour, I let it go. However I tweeted and even messaged them on facebook - no replies or acknowledgements whatsoever.
I am not an extreme sports person, so they was no extreme action with my phone and case. However I did drop it a number of times, and once, the yellow protective rubber came out. This I believe is very important and protects the charging port and waterproofs it. After fixing it myself, and testing it, it seemed fine and I continued using it.
But the case showed a lot of wear and tear. The rubber from the sides kept getting chipped off, and again, I do not use it roughly.
The ultimate test was the festival of Holi, with a lot of coloured powder and water. The phone fared truly well. However when I removed the cover to clean it up, there was colour seeping inside my case. And then on closer inspection, the plastic film at the back was beginning to come undone. I could actually see the gap and I don't think I'll ever be able to use this case in water ever again!
