I got my case yesterday. It's not as bulky as an otterbox. It's ok I guess. It does seal up the phone pretty well. The screen protector doesn't fit flush the screen so there is definitely a gap. I like the cover for the pin connector and the headphones. I think that will help keep dust out of there. I can still hear pretty well with the case on. The speakers are covered up though. Do I think it was worth the $80? No way. The otterbox defender is cheaper and will do the same, however the otterbox is just too bulky. I also like that Lifeproof put in a plastic window over the apple logo. Otterbox doesn't do this. I like the design of the Lifeproof, but its mostly plastic that I don't think will hold up.
