Default Lifebox vs. Otterbox Armor

Does anyone have any insight on which of these cases is better?

I have historically gotten Otterbox Defenders for my iPhones, and I'm not against that again... but just wanted some real life experience, should anyone have any insight.

TYIA.

If you mean the lifeproof case, I have it for my iPhone 5 and I LOVE it. I take it in the pool all the time, and even in the shower so I can listen to music lol! It's awesome, and the thinnest case available that is waterproof/drop/shock protective.

Yes, yes, the lifeproof box. There was clearly a disconnect between my brain & my fingers when I typed this out. Aheheh.

The lifeproof felt bulky to me and I didn't like having to unplug and use an adaptor for my headphones. That said I have broken several otterbox cases so I have complaints all around. lol

Does the Lifeproof case come off easily if I only want to use it sometimes?

Never had an Otterbox, but I can say that I love my Lifeproof.

What I really love about the company is their customer service. Whenever we have had an issue with the cases, they are so helpful in either replacing them or just helping us out.

I have the purple one right now, but I really want the green one. Hopefully soon I will buy it, but it's just a lot of money and I don't want to spend it

FYI - if you have original Apple headphones, you don't have to use the adapter. They fit perfectly into the case. Took me like a year to figure that out, but yep, it works!

It isn't too hard to take on and off. However, they recommend not to take it off often at all.

Do you have any issues with folks hearing you while using the LifeProof? My dad has one and no longer uses it because of that. :/

I haven't with my case.

However, one of my mom's cases DID have that issue (it was the white one, if that makes any difference lol). She talked to the company and they replaced it with no issues - don't think she has had any issues with it again, but can't be sure as she is using a black one at the moment.

I had more issues being heard with my Otterbox case than my Lifeproof case. The LP is also waaay thinner and lighter.
