Smartphone cases come in all shapes, colours, sizes and smells. But how much protection do they offer your precious Android gadget? Generally you can either choose a slim and stylish one that protects your mobile from scuffs and scratches; or you can choose a chunky and cumbersome one that makes your phone virtually bombproof. Those are the rules. And for years phone cases (and users) have abided by them. But we’ve found a case that’s set to change all that.
The original Lifeproof was developed in secret military bunkers and space-laboratories to not only protect your mobile from drops, knocks and splashes; but to also enhance the functions of your phone.
This new and improved incarnation is made specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S4 (see, Apple doesn't have all the fun) and oh boy it's slimmer, sleeker, lighter, louder and stronger. Featuring double AR-coated optical glass and a tough, barely visible, clear touchscreen film; providing full protection with no loss of functionality, not to mention the IP-68 rated case itself.
Creating a total seal around your phone you can happily snap away with Instagram or take care of business, whether from the bottom of the swimming pool, deep in the desert or struggling through a snowstorm. No matter what life throws at you.
