I am now on my second warranty claim in about 4 months for this case.

The charge port is a very poor design, with two small plastic lugs that snap shut to keep the water out. They have a habit of breaking. My original case (ordered direct from LP) failed after 6 weeks. They replaced it FOC and now that replacement has suffered the same problem.

It is clearly a design fault and I found others on line who had had exactly the same issues. It is a shame, because the case is excellent otherwise.

I shall get a replacement but it will go on Trade Me and I will be moving to another case now.

Interesting, I have owned Lifeproof cases for iphone 4 and 5 as well as iPad mini and iPad air which all use a very similar if not the same charge port design. Never had any issues with the cases, perhaps quality control has gone down?

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

I also find this interesting. 

I use a Nuud for my iPhone 6 and have had no issues. 

I also have a Fre and have used both of my cases extensively

I have been using Lifeproof Nuud cases since I had a 5 and to date have never had an issue. Must be a 6Plus issue.
