I was a little worried about buying this case cause I thought it was a fake. I mean this case retails for around $100 and it's being sold here for $11.95, has to be to good to be true, right? Well I am 100% positive this is a legit Otterbox case. Everything checks out, the logo, the material etc. This thing is a tank!
Sadly, the case failed the water test in the first 5 minutes it was submerged. It got a pretty good amount of water inside, and I am not sure where it leaked from. I checked the bottom ports, they were closed. I also checked to make sure the back was on tight enough and it was. Even though it failed the water test, I still love this case. This thing is a beast and I have no doubt it will keep my phone safe from drops. I'm not really around water a lot so I can look past the non waterproof part. Had I paid full retail price for this (around $100) I would be mad, but for $11.95, can't complain.
Shipping was a nightmare! I decided to use the free shipping option. I ordered it on a Friday and didn't expect it to ship out till Wednesday due to them being closed Monday and Tuesday for some holiday. I was surprised when I got an email later in the day saying it shipped! So after checking and checking the tracking number and having it keep come up as NOT FOUND, I contacted customer service the following Wednesday. They informed me it didn't actually ship. As an apology they would upgrade it to Priority Mail 2 Day. Great, I would expect it to be here on Saturday, but that didn't happen. I ordered this case on 9/11/15 and just received it today on 9/23/15, and that's with the Priority Mail 2 Day! So my experience with their shipping wasn't very good. The package was not damaged though so that's a plus.
I am not sure if I just got a defective case or not, but I am not going to bother sending it back for a replacement due to my shipping experience. If you can look past the fact that this case MAY not be waterproof, I highly recommend it. After all, you can still use it as a case, and this thing will for sure protect your iPhone from drops.
