LifeProof provide me with a case to review and a case to giveaway, but I was not paid for this post. All opinions are always my own.
I ran the Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World and decided to bring the new LifeProof fre case along to try. I am SO glad I did. My shiny new iPhone 6 would’ve been toast had I not. While running my iPhone provides my music and is also my camera. If you run Disney then you probably understand why you want a camera along with you. In past races I have seen a bad handoff of phone to workers and back to runners that result in the phone crashing to the ground and cracking the screen. I have also been caught in freak rainstorms while Florida. For these 2 reasons is why I decided to put the new LifeProof fre case to the test.
LifeProof fre is the thinest case that provides durability I have ever seen. It is also super lightweight. The built-in scratch protector keeps the display brilliant without inhibiting touchscreen functionality. Every device feature is accessible and full functionality remains intact, including Touch ID. LifeProof fre is both waterproof to 6.6 feet for one hour and drop proof to 6.6 feet and completely enclosed from dirt when the case and all ports are properly sealed.
During the full marathon around mile 20, out of the middle of no where, it started pouring rain. There is no way my phone would’ve survived had I not had it in the LifeProof case. The forecast that morning had not called for rain, but it just shows that you never know. Around mile 24 I was exhausted and accidentally dropped my phone as I was running. As if that wasn’t bad enough I also kicked it once it hit the ground. I picked it up and there wasn’t even a scratch!
You can see the phone in my hand here in front of the castle. The case is thin and lightweight enough to run holding it in my hand.
This fall onto cement would’ve cracked my screen had it not been in the LifeProof case. For these 2 reasons I will never run with my iPhone out of a LifeProof case ever again. I would hate to have to pay to have a cracked screen replaced or a phone ruined by water damage.

The giveaway is for one LifeProof iPhone or Samsung case (pending colors available for specific phone model at time of giveaway).
