Want top-of-the-line protection for your iPhone X? You need the $89.99 LifeProof Fre, which is water proof, dirt proof, snow proof, and shock proof.
In fact, the company is so confident of the durability of its case that LifeProof offers a a Total Water Protection Program for the iPhone and iPad to anyone who purchases a LifeProof case on its website. This optional program offers a one-time repair or replacement of the device for up to one full year if it sustains accidental water damage in a LifeProof case.
However, you should note that it’s limited to one-time use and includes a nominal upfront fee and a service fee. It also requires the case be used in accordance with all of the provided instructions.
That said, the Frē is waterproof down to 6.6 feet for an hour and keeps a smartphone safe from droops up to 6.6 feet. A built-in screen protector keeps the display free from scratches, while dirt and snow are sealed out when all port covers are closed.
The Frē protects all features of the iPhone X, including the headphone jack, charge port, speakers, and microphones, while still offering access to them. What’s more, thanks to its clear back window, it showcases the Apple logo.
The iPhone X has such a great camera that many of us like to take it with us wherever we go, even if we’re swimming, hiking, or canoeing. The Frē — available in six flavors — allows you to do this, without worrying about damaging your pricey smartphone.
The one thing I don’t like about it: it adds enough heft to the iPhone X that I can’t fit it into my holster case from simple.be, which I really like. Oh well, guess I’ll have to use my Apple Leather Folio case for my non-adventurous days, and the Frē for the days when the outdoor calls.
