The Lifeproof case is great. It offers excellent protection for the iPad mini. The case might get a little scuffed but not my Ipad mini. I use my iPad mini for work in the telecommunication field for taking pictures an checking emails for work orders. Since having the case, it's been dropped and exposed to light rain. No problem. They give you instructions on how to test it to make sure it is watertight.
On the other hand, shipping was turtle slow. It took more than 2 weeks to receive it. However, you won't get it for that price any where else. Best Buy wanted almost $70 on sale.
They can call it what they want to, there is nothing 'lifeproof' about this case. It is not built to be a sturdy case for your i-pad. My i-pad has multiple cracks in it now from being in the case and the case not protecting it. Plus, they waited until the very last minute to ship it, causing me to wait longer to receive it. NOT a happy customer. I purchased the case to protect my i-pad, unfortunately it didn't do that...
The LifeProof fre case seems to be durable, but it is not water proof. My son dropped his iPad in the sink and water got into it and the iPad had water damage. Luckily we still had insurance on the iPad through Apple we were able to get a new one, but I still had to pay Apple $53.00. So Please do not think it is water proof!
It's a pretty good case. Very protective and hopefully screen won't break if ever dropped. However, the power button is but hard to push and the volume mute switch is useless. Good case but there are better fits with other cases
The lifeproof case for the iPad mini is outstanding! I was stoked to upgrade from the otterbox with silicone that kept stretching and coming loose. Better protection and better looks make this case the prime choice.
This case is giving excellent protection for the iPad. My only comment is that in the corner areas, you have to press harder than without the cover to make the screen respond, but once you get used to that, there really are no issues. I now feel safe letting kids use the iPad, even if they are not on a soft surface.
I use my iPad mini with the case everyday for work. It's been great! I've dropped it a couple times and pick up and keep on going. I've wipe it off daily with sanitizing wipes knowing the case will keep my iPad safe. I haven't used the shoulder strap yet, but it's going to come in handy.
It is a good product over all but it was really, really hard to get to close around my ipad mini. I had to use pliers and I don't want to ever remove it because I know it will be difficult although I wish could. Otherwise it is good but very inconvenient and time consuming...
I love the case! I have one For my IPhone and have never been disappointed at its performance. I did the water test before using the case, and accidentally forgot to take the case out of the water for 8 hours. After 8 hours under water, the case was still dry. Since installing the lifeproof case on my iPad, the pad has fallen many times and the case and the device still intact.
I would highly recommend the lifeproof case for iPhone and iPad. I am a very satisfied customer!
Great case. Seems to protect it well, even from three small kids. Only issue I have is that the screen cover doesn't sit against the screen (it is sort of bubbled up) so sometimes I have to push a little harder to use the touchscreen.
