LifeProof cases are designed to measure up to the challenges of everyday life, while keeping you and your extra appendage looking stylish. These cases are sleek and slim, but still meet military specifications, giving you the freedom to go anywhere and do anything. So whether you’re on the fence about buying a LifeProof case or you just ordered yours (congrats!), here are 6 things you should know about LifeProof cases.
1. They’re sand-resistant.
Have you ever suffered from sandruff? You know, you spend an amazing day soaking up the rays at the beach only to get home and realize you still have hundreds of grains of sand still in your hair, even after you’ve showered. It almost ruins all the fun you just had. Fortunately, if you’re headed to the beach this summer—or even if you’ll just be pretending you are while playing with your little ones in the backyard sandbox—you can take your custom iPhone 6 case, or whatever iPhone generation you have, with you and never worry about sand getting stuck in your phone’s crevices. LifeProof cases completely protect your phone from even the tiniest grain of sand, and does so when your phone is in your beach bag or when you’re using it to take selfies or make a call. LifeProof cases are also resistant to dirt and dust.
2. They’re drop-proof up to 6.6 feet.
According to a 2016 survey from Verizon, 49% of American mobile phone owners have broken their phone. And of the top-5 ways people have broken their phone, 2 of those answers dealt with throwing and dropping their phone. So if you’re known to be a klutz, this case will save your screen, your entire phone, and you from having to spend money replacing it. It’s completely klutz-proof, as well as kid-proof and pet-proof. A LifeProof case will save your phone from your toddler who gets upset that his Netflix show ended and decides to throw your phone on the ground, or when Fido excitedly jumps up to greet you when you get home and knocks your phone onto the hardwood floor. And maybe you should also get one for your “passionate” husband who doesn’t tend to handle his team losing very well. As long as you’re not higher than 6.6 feet, your phone will survive the drop when it’s in a LifeProof case.
3. Each case is water tested.
In the same Verizon survey mentioned above, the No. 1 reason people broke their phone was dropping it in water, and the No. 2 reason also has to do with water, as 42% of those surveyed had sent their phone through the washing machine. Yikes! If you’ve ever been a victim of either, or are worried that one day you’re going to drop it in the sink or even worse, the toilet, you don’t need to be. Each case is leakproof and submersible up to 6.6 feet of water for up to 1 hour. And, every case is factory water tested, while random cases also undergo a second water test. So now you can FaceTime your kids while getting a surf lesson during your romantic Hawaii getaway and know that your phone will stay dry.
To ensure your case is waterproof, Lifeproof recommends that you perform a pre-installation water test if you plan to expose your device to water. They recommend performing this test each time before completely submersing your phone in water to ensure your case quality and waterproofness hasn’t been compromised from use or damage.
- Snap case front and back together
- Close charge port door and screw jack cover all the way in
- Submerge in water for 30 minutes
- Remove, dry, and look inside for moisture
- Open charge port door and use a coin to separate case
- If dry inside, go to Install Device. If wet inside, visit www.lifeproof.com/support.
4. Warranty is available.
At Boutique Me, we include a 30-day warranty on all our products from the date your order ships. This warranty covers any manufacturing defects. But, when you buy a personalized LifeProof case from us, LifeProof extends their 1-year limited warranty to your personalized case (since we are an authorized retailer!) if it fails the water test or you believe that it’s defective within 1 year of purchase. No need to register your LifeProof case for this warranty as it is automatically in effect from the date of purchase. For more information on LifeProof’s warranty, check out their warranty policy. We often hear the rumor that Lifeproof and Otterbox cases have a lifetime warranty but that simply isn’t true of either but keep in mind that the typical iphone user swaps out their case every 3 – 6 months so the 1-year warranty from Lifeproof is more than enough.
And if for some reason your personalized LIfeProof case doesn’t meet its promised standards, we will re-personalize any case covered by LifeProof’s warranty at no additional cost to you. Just shoot us a quick email and we will outline the process for getting your replacement case personalized quickly.
5. They can be customized with Boutique Me designs.
One of the worst feelings is when you get a new dress that you’re so excited to wear for the first time, but then you show up to church, a wedding, party, or wherever you’re going, and someone has on the exact same dress. Total letdown. It’s normal to want to be a little different; to stand out from all the Stepford wives at the neighborhood party. And with a LifeProof case, you can.
Do you love vibrant-colored flowers? Add them. Are you into polka dots or chevron patterns? You can add those, too. We let you customize every detail to fit your taste and coordinate with your favorite seasonal purses. You can even add your own personal photos, business logo or your child’s artwork make your custom LifeProof case more personalized.
Check out our collection of custom phone cases to keep you and your extra tech appendage protected and fashionable on the daily adventures the two of you take.
6. What is the difference in LifeProof Fre cases and LifeProof Nuud cases.
Both case types are waterproof, drop-proof, shock proof, slim and tough but the biggest difference is that the LifeProof Nuud cases do not include a screen protector. If you are prone to cracked or broken screens the LifeProof Fre is the clear choice for you. However, if you enjoy the usability of your screen and the overall profile of your iphone without a case, the LifeProof Nuud is right for you. While the Lifeproof Nuud cases do not include a screen protector, they are still waterproof and otherwise as durable as the Lifeproof Fre while giving you hassel-free use of your iPhone’s touchscreen.
