    Until the case is released, try the OB Defender. There are numerous drop test videos and I have a review on my YouTube channel.

    I will see if i can get some pretty solid answers to this. Got to be pretty good friends over the net with someone that works pretty high up with them. I was like the second person to get when they first came out for the iPhones

    eek..if he's going to wait and pay ~$80 for the LifeProof, is it a good idea to spend ~$30-40 on a OB Defender that will be replaced

    I'm not much of a Defender fan. Yes, the customer service is second to none, no doubt about it, but the Defender is imo a poor design. You put plastic around your phone then put silicone around the plastic. Then a few months down the road you take the case off and you realize that the hard plastic that sits right on your phone has scratched the device up in several places. Imo there should be some VERY thin silicone buffering in between the plastic and the phone, then made the outer silicone a hair thinner so no extra thickness is added in the case.

    I will say this though, if you don't mind the scratches that you'll probably get to the case of the phone, the Defender does protect the device EXTREMELY well from bumps and drops. Personally, not my choice though. I'll probably have a BNIB Defender for sale here in the next few days.

    I have a Commuter on my GS3 and I like it...now. my big complaint is that the Commuter has very little grip on the back of the case and will slip in your hands s bit. I've remedied this by putting some extremely thin (1/16" ) self stick foam grip on the back...it's designed for furniture or putting on the bottom home decor so it doesn't scratch tables or things like that. It's sold at any home improvement store for about $2.50. Now I love my commuter, I only wish it had a kickstand. Hopefully there will be an aftermarket kickstand available here in the next couple of weeks if the developer pulls through with them.

    Btw there's no f-ing way that I'm paying $80 for a flipping phone case. Buy one of those separate battery back-up chargers and use it for any phone or other electronic device you want when you need it and not have to be stuck having it on only one phone.

    Uh why are you talking about battery backups? This is about the LifeProof case, a waterproof case. Not a battery case like Mophie or PowerSkin. I probably won't buy any case over $50. But I like the sound of waterproof. It would help for emergency cases of using your phone in the rain, or if a dumb friend throws you in a pool.

    The product at Best Buy you described is the Obex from Seidio. For some reason it is labeled 'Platinum series', which is a load of hoopla. I guess mislabeling products is how Best Buy does things. Maybe it is so you buy it not realizing it is Seidios flagship garbage scow.

    No. They aren't mislabeling it. They have a partnership with Seidio or whatever. All the seidio products are under the brand name platinum series.

    That makes me trust Seidio even less. If they need sales so bad that they allow that then I guess I will probably never support their products again. Next thing you know they will be partnering with Walmart (the Obex is such garbage that i expect it there). This is very similar to the sudo bait and switch tactics of Best Best buy often implements. I Wonder how many fall for that 'platinum series' bullstuff.

    I guess yeah. Not sure what they mean by doing it but i gave a platinum series case and i love it. It's the thin one (surface) dropped it on tile floor not a scratch. Awesome case

    I have been waiting for the Lifeproof, tried the OBEX from Seidio but returned it the next day, it didn't pass sound well, I couldn't hear the callers and I definitely couldn't use the rear speaker for music or videos. Also couldn't plug in my patch cords to run Slacker through a Dewalt boombox, hole is too tight. Customer service had me reinstall the phone, bottom first, to make sure the speakers lined up correctly, didn't make a difference.

    After reading your comments I went out to check these cases out on eBay. Not sure if I can trust this item yet. I've heard no updates from Lifeproof so far, and majority are sold by one person.

    A few of the sellers are from China. Most likely the ones in the US were ordered in large quantity at cheap prices and sold for profit to us. If this isn't real its not OEM. One way to test it is to submerge it under water but I highly suggest not doing so with a product that may not be genuine

    Just too cheap for a new product by LP
