ACThere are several cell phone cases out there that promise to protect your phone from virtually anything you can put it through. Companies like Balistic, Otterbox and Griffen offer lines of cases that boast claims like military grade to put users at ease. One of the biggest drawbacks to these cases though is the extreme amount of bulk these cases add to the phone as you wrap it in multiple layers of protection. A company called Lifeproof is touting an iPhone case that is supposedly military grade but only adds 1/16 of an inch of bulk to the phone. That's basically the same bulk added as a standard rubberized case, except this one is water proof, dust proof, shock proof and well, life proof. As you can see from the video, the case definitely passes the water and mud test. Although there is nothing in that video that would suggest its shock proof too. At $70 it better be more than just air tight, and I'm not sure if I want to be the one to test their phone in a durability test.
