Pros Is everything is claims to be in terms of protection, including watrproof and submersible.
Cons Poor call quality with this case. The Fre does not meet Apple's standards for Call Quality as defined in Apple's developer document "Case Design Guidelines for Apple Devices, Release R3". Voice is muffled. Speakerphone and other audio is terrible.
Summary I would not recommend this case for anyone who must use the iPhone 5 as a "phone". I returned mine to Best Buy and replaced it with another brand due to the poor call quality and poor speakerphone/music sound quality.
Pros Great protection for your iPhone. Probably the best protection out there for the iPhone 5. Size is great and does not add much weight to the phone.
Cons Unable to end calls at times and the case vibrates when the speakers are used.
Summary Only buy it if you absolutely need the waterproof feature. Otherwise, it really hampers the iPhone. I have had similar results with three of these cases.

Thin & Sleek
Cons The headphone adapter can get lost easily.
Summary I don't understand the negative reviews on this case, I have absolutely none of the problems other people are having. I have excellent call quality, no muffled sound, the case does not vibrate, etc.
I am an avid fisherman and usually leave my phone in the car when I'm out on the river. With this case I can take it with me and still listen to music. I don't have to worry about it dropping on rocks or falling into water. It's GREAT!!!
Other waterproof cases are so bulky but this one is slim and easy to hold. If you are into the outdoors and worry about your gadgets then this is the case for you!
Pros My 3 year old can play with it and I don't have to worry about spills, drops, or slobber. All features remain functional. Can take under-water pics and video. There are no other cases that can match the features & functionality of the Lifeproof case.
Cons Overall construction doesn't have the best quality feel to it. The screen protector is wavy. The addition of the apple showing window in the back is unnecessary and vibrates with high speakerphone volume.
Summary As a person who really takes care of his tech-gadgets this case really allows me to be free with my phone and not worry about it getting damaged. I rinse and wash my phone daily. Just think of the amount of germs that can accumulate on your phone from your mouth, your hands, and everyone else who handles your phone. It's nice to know a little soap and water can fix all that without damaging your phone. Sounds a little germaphobic I know, but can you deny?
Pros All the features work, the sound enhancement system makes music sound very nice, and the calls sound great.
Cons If you're holding the phone, it kind of mutes the sound enhancement system.
Summary I'd say to definitely buy this case.
