Normal wear and tear, camera protector cracked

2 out of 5 rating

Tim W · 5 months ago

Bought in July 2021. 3rd phone with a life proof case. Normally very reliable but the iPhone 12 mini case camera lens protector cracked at the sound hole, spider cracks across lens interferes with camera. Also plastic used for lens cover scratches too easily(again, normal wear and tear) which interferes with picture and video quality. Past cases had glass protection, this plastic is subpar. Hope lifeproof fixes this or this customer will have to find a better alternative

Hi Tim W, We're sorry to see you've had bad luck with the camera protector of the case. This is very unusual to hear. Are there any particular circumstances in which this is happening? Like your device being left in your pocket with keys. Either way, we'd love to get to the bottom of this mystery over the phone at 1-888-533-0735. Best, LifeProof Customer Service Team

covers speaker port

I've had this case less than a year and tried to file a warranty since the bumper guards inside are covering the speaker port. Lifeproof responded that this case is discontinued and canceled the claim. So I decided to tweak the case. So I removed the bumpers and the mesh speaker cover, then after aligning the phone with the speakerport side I see that the phones speakers don't even line up with the holes in the case. The side of the phone with the 2 holes for the speaker are completely blocked by the case. It falls in between the speaker port and the power port. The other side only shows 2 of the 4 speaker holes showing. I've been told for the past year that no one can hear me when my phone is on speaker or FaceTime. It's all because of the poor design of this case.

Hi there! We're sorry to hear that you were having some trouble with your FRĒ case! Sometimes if you don't have that case installed just right, it can lead to some audio issues like you're experiencing. When you're putting your phone into that case, we recommend sliding your phone in speaker-end first, as that will help with proper alignment of the speakers, microphones, and proximity sensors. Though this FRĒ case is discontinued, we do see that our Customer Service Team has offered to replace your case with one of our other styles. If you'd like to proceed with your warranty claim, simply reply to the last email you received from your warranty claim. Best, LifeProof Customer Service Team
