    So I bought the obliq case from amazon and I really like it. It will hold me until there comes a decent waterproof s4 case. That being said, has anyone heard of the big guys coming out with a waterproof case worth buying? I'm not a fan of the obex at all. I like lifeproof, but their obviously iCrap only. I emailed otterbox and they said it's not happening (and they just purchased lifeproof). I'm sorta bummed since I live in a rainy duck blind for most of November - February.

    Thanks!

    Seriously I keep my phone in one while in the pocket of my coveralls during deer season. I know there is more potential for a wet phone while in a duck blind on a lake or pond, but still, with no waterproof case options that might be as good as it gets.

    Same here, though I've found in general that the ones with the fancy "zipper" stuff tend to not seal quite as tightly as the press-to-lock type. The zipper ones are more convenient for getting the phone out, true, but mine stays in the bag whenever I'm outdoors. I even keep a simple sandwich bag stuffed in the bottom of my holster bag in case I'm out and about, see an Ingress opportunity, and it happens to be raining.

    The ideal for actually using the phone is a bag large enough to stuff the phone and your hand into. Warm, dry hand using dry phone, with no risk of a raindrop on plastic being interpreted as a long-press on the screen (which in Ingress usually means a Level 8 XMP is wasted forever).

    Edit to add: Also, always leave a little air in the bag. The slight positive pressure tends to keep water out to an extent if there's a small hole in the bag you didn't notice, keeping the plastic away from the screen until you press on it means fewer accidental raindrop-induced false keypresses, and if you put enough air in it the bag will float if dropped in the water, increasing your chances of retrieving the phone.

    I've done the bag thing for years. It would be nice to have a case that did it instead...you know?

    I agree. I would buy a lifeproof case for my One and s4 in a heartbeat if they cared for us android users and got their head out of Apple's behind.

    They said it's not happening. I doubt it will fit in the s3 case because of its more rounded corners.

    It works in the bag but the phone function sounds strange.
