I've ordered one today. At that price it's a no brainer!

At that price it's a copy though... I bought mine on ebay for around 50. Then I bought one for my daughter much cheaper and the cheap one is definitely a copy, not the same quality.

Watch out for cheap life proof cases I bought one for 26 on eBay. It was a fake. Hard to tell though till I compared it to a mates 60 one. In bits now.

I had a genuine Lifeproof and it was brilliant. I dropped it once too any times and it wasn't looking pretty so I purchased a new one from ebay.

Well they look the same but the touchscreen is not as easy to use, the speaker doesn't sound as loud and the sound/mute button doesn't quite line up so I can't put ring sound back on.

I have since ordered a new one from Lifeproof.

I have an Otterbox Commuter Linky which is great for everyday use and is excellant at saving your phone from being dropped on the floor - no help if you drop it in the sea though!

That's what I've been through too. Will be ordering a real one next week. The fake was very real with the packaging etc. but eBay warned me but I had it already and it looked perfect. Beware!!

Well the "LifeProof" case I bought cheaply from redracingparts on Ebay arrived quickly and looked the business with all the packaging as you'd expect.

However I checked the serial numbers with LifeProof and they confirmed that it's NOT genuine. Surprise, surprise.

I had naively assumed that it was just a clearance price because the iPhone 4s isn't the latest model. Anyway I've requested a refund and will probably buy a legit one now as it does look like a good design.
