Gadget Focus: LifeProof Case for iPhone 4/4s


iPhone cases come in all shapes, colours, sizes and smells. But how much protection do they offer your Apple gadget? Generally you can either choose a slim and stylish one that protects your mobile from scuffs and scratches or you can choose a chunky and cumbersome one that makes your iPhone virtually bombproof. Those are the rules. And for years iPhone cases (and users) have abided by them. But we’ve found a case that’s set to change all that. Buy here!

Seven Levels of Lifeproof Protection:

  • Waterproof vents on all mics and speakers
  • Anti-reflective optical glass lens
  • Waterproof and dirt-proof seals on case and port
  • Scratch-resistant, waterproof screen protector
  • Poly-carbonate frame
  • Non-stick cover
  • Shock-absorbing elastomer

Lifeproof for iPhone not only protects your mobile from drops, knocks, splashes and just about everything it also enhances the functions of your iPhone. And all this while adding a mere 1.3mm to your precious Apple gadget.


  • Keep your phone dirt-free
  • Great for holidays
  • Underwater fun
  • Water-tight screw-in headphone
  • Double AR-coated optical glass protects your camera lens for crystal clear photos
  • The delicate touchscreen is covered by a tough, barely visible, clear film providing just the same functionality as the bare touchscreen. In fact, the only difference with the Lifeproof fitted is that you can flick through your photos, update your Facebook status and play Angry Birds from the bottom of the swimming pool.
  • Hatch for ease of charging
  • Super slim protection for your iPhone 4/4S Designed by the people behind black-box flight recorder technology and tested to military specifications

Lifeproof for iPhone is perfect for anyone who has ever dropped, kicked, squashed, splashed, thrown or drowned their mobile but can’t bear the idea of hiding Apple’s gorgeous design in a chunky case. Includes bonus General User Headphone Adaptor and Keeper for headphone jack cover.


  • Protection: Protects against every-day hazards
  • Freedom: Ability to swim and take underwater or anywhere
  • Beauty: Ultra-slim and adds only 1/16″ (1.5mm) when measured from the center of the phone
  • Convenience: Weighs less than an ounce (28g)
  • Full Functionality: Double AR-coated optical glass lenses provide unprecedented crystal-clear photo and video quality
  • Please Note:
  • Read the assembly instructions carefully
