We’ve all done it. Spilled water all over our precious smartphone, watched in horror as it fell into the toilet, dropped an iPhone on the sidewalk and destroyed the screen. It’s a gut-wrenching moment you’re determined never to experience again. That’s why you need a rugged case for your device. We’ve selected the top six waterproof cases for your iPhone 5 that will protect it from splashes, dunks, bumps and drops.
Having been called the thinnest, lightest and strongest all-protective case ever created, the LifeProof Fre for iPhone 5 has a big reputation to live up to. The company claims this case is waterproof up to 6.6 feet, dirt-proof, snow-proof and shockproof for drops up to 6.6 feet, with an integrated scratch protector for the touch screen. While the 1.1-ounce Fre does cover the camera with glass, it’s an antireflective optical glass lens that shouldn’t affect shots. A clear back window shows off the Apple logo, plus LifeProof offers tons of colorful options, including Black, Cyan, Dark Flat Earth, Lime, Magenta, Olive Drab Green, Red, Teal, White and Yellow. The 5.4 x 2.6 x 0.5-inch case is backed by a one-year warranty.
