When it comes to smartphones or any electronic gadget, it does not go well with water. Water exposure can cause the circuits to break and also make them non-recoverable. iPhone, like any other smartphone, is susceptible to damage if exposed to water. While most of us want water proof protection for minor spills or kids pouring water on your phones, others might want to use the phone under water in a swimming pool.
Water damage always does not mean that iPhone is out, but most of the cases it might cause some internal issues. So you might want to consider using water proof or water resistant cases or covers for your iPhone 5.
So here is a list of best waterproof cases for your iPhone 5. While some of them are proper cases, others are covers or pouches which provide air tight environment for your iPhone 5.
1. LifeProof fr? iPhone 5 Case:
LifeProof fr? for iPhone 5 is the thinnest, lightest, strongest all-protective case ever created. fr? delivers the water-proof, dirt-proof, snow-proof and shock-proof protection you expect from LifeProof, and so much more. Every feature has been designed to work seamlessly with your iPhone 5 – touch screen, camera, buttons, microphones and speakers. The incredibly low profile adds a mere 1.5 mm to each edge, and the sleek silhouette showcases your iPhone 5’s already legendary design. It is priced at $79.99.
2. OtterBox Armor series:
The Armor Series waterproof iPhone 5 case is a rebirth of classic OtterBox protection. Watertight latches, O-ring seals, port covers and mesh coverings allow the Armor Series case to be completely waterproof, tolerating submersions for 30 minutes in up to 6.6 feet of water. Vents made of a non-permeable membrane and protective mesh layer allow sound to move through while keeping harmful elements out. It is priced at $99.95.
Unlike other protective cases, Liquipel is not a proper case, instead it is a invisible layer of waterproof coating that covers the device. The coating is so powerful that when it is done to the device once, it will be protected for a lifetime. Since the Liquipel is not a physical case other cases can be used with the iPhone.
DryCASE is a flexible, crystal clear waterproof case that allows complete use of your phone or camera while keeping it dry and clean. The air tight seal guarantees that the iPhone 5 will stay dry even when submerged underwater. For $39.99, you also get a neoprene activity arm band for water sports, and the case is crystal clear so pictures can take snaps using the iPhone camera as well.
Seidio’s OBEX utilizes advanced technology that not only safeguards your device against drops, but also keeps external elements like water, snow, mud, other liquids, dust, and sand from damaging your device. Waterproof membranes prevent external matter from entering the microphone and speakers while maintaining sound quality.
BubbleShield utilizes a dual-zip enclosure to ensure your device is safe from water, mud, sand, or any other particles. And what’s more, the BubbleShield sleeve is super-strong yet magically thin, ensuring your touch screen doesn’t miss a single gesture.
7. Incipio Atlas
The Incipio Atlas is an iPhone hard case with a glass screen protector to help keep the screen safe from drops, and also water or dust. Equipped for any aquatic adventure, it’s the complete ultra-rugged dirtproof and waterproof companion. Atlas will come in a verity of colors with an $80 price tag.
8. Amphibx Fit Waterproof Armband:
Amphibx Fit Waterproof Armband is yet another protective cover for your iPhone or any other smartphone. Thanks to the precision engineering of the patented LatchTight locking closure and SealTight headphone connector, it provides a secure seal up to 12ft/3.6m underwater. This case sits slightly off the arm with minimal skin contact, allowing for air circulation without compromising fit during activity.
So which is your favorite case for water proofing?
