The iContact Water Proof iPhone 5 case received mixed reviews from buyers. While some thought it worked great, others said the case allowed water in, and their phones no longer worked. Consumers like the idea that you can take pictures while you’re in a pool or shower, but for some that convenience came with a price.
Snowboarders seemed to really like this case. One reviewer that used this case on a consistent basis while snowboarding said that he was surprised at how well the case held up because he throws so much snow. The case has never leaked in all of the times he’s taken it boarding with him. Others users said they had dropped the phone in the snow with the case on it, and it remained dry and sealed.
Another reviewer worked at a car wash and never had a problem with the case leaking. He used it every day through hundreds of washes without a problem. One mother used it to record her son’s first time in the pool, and she said the case worked perfectly.
While there were a few positive reviews, reviewers had a lot of complaints about this iPhone case. One reviewer missed turns while trying to use the GPS on the phone because the sound from the speakers was distorted. Another user said that the case leaked while being used in the water on vacation, and the phone ended up having to be completely restored. The worker that restored the phone said that using water proof cases is never a good idea because they tend to leak.
Based on the many negative reviews, the iContact Water Proof iPhone 5 case is not recommended for the water proof feature. It is, however, recommended for those who work or live in a dusty area where dust may build up on or interfere with the operations of the phone.
