Realtree LifeProof Fre for iPhone 6 Case Review

The LifeProof FRĒ Iphone 6 Case is now the leading iPhone case on the market and it’s easy to see why.  I am using one in Realtree Xtra with an Orange accent color. The case is exceptional and well thought out. These cases were provided to me from LifeProof for testing and arrived within a few days of ordering them.

I will be honest: the first time I tried LifeProof cases for iPhones a few years ago, I really did not like the case.  I took it off after a week of testing. They hampered sound quality, were clunky and oftentimes the screen prevented the touch screen from working perfectly on the edges and corners. The biggest issue was the sound quality.  I had to basically yell into the phone to get it to work. It did protect the phone but not as well as other cases.

The newest version of the LifeProof FRĒ Iphone 6 case has addressed all of those issues.  It forms an incredibly tight seal around the phone and still allows great sound quality while protecting your phone. The case keeps your phone waterproof up to 6.6 feet deep, dirt free, snow free and drop resistant from 6.6 feet. The cover prevents scratches from developing on your screen and the case looks good in the Realtree camo and orange. The cases come in various color options but the Realtree camo will speak well to hunters and offers an camo/orange version, Olive/camo version and a pink camo version.

The case comes with a one year warranty and retails around $89.00. You can order them directly from LifeProof or pick them up at your nearest retailer. I looked at various case options on the market and this case really stands out with the orange camo version for my phone.  It says I am a hunter. I have no worries with this case that my phone will get ruined on any of my hunts regardless of the conditions and that is important to me.
