Our last review of Lifeproof cases was back in April for the NEXT cases for Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+. Fortunately, Lifeproof makes their great cases for many different phones, and today we get to review the NEXT for the iPhone Xs Max and Samsung Galaxy Note10+. We also have the FRĒ case for the iPhone XR.
These “drop proof, dirt proof, snow proof” cases offer protection from up to 2 ft. They have protection around ports, mic and speakers to keep out the dirt and other elements. Raised edges wrap around to the front so your phone can be placed face-down. The screen is open to touch. This is a sleek case, that fits nicely around the phone, but accessible for wireless QI charging.
For the iPhone, the case comes in black, purple, pink, green and blue trim with a clear backing. It can be purchased for $80.99 It’s the same price for the Samsung Note 10+, but is more limited in colors. You can get it in a gray trim with black back, a black trim with clear back, or a blue trim with clear back. Order that one here.
Next up, we have the
Lifeproof FRĒ for the iPhone Xr
This case offers 350 degree protection as it has a built-in screen cover. It’s waterproof- submersible up to 2 meters for one hour. Buttons and ports are sealed for extra protection from dirt, dust and snow. You can also drop it from about a six foot drop, and keep your phone safe. The FRĒ comes in a variety of colors- many of them are fun and bright. You can choose from Asphalt(Black with Gray trim as shown above), Body Surf(two shades of Gray with a Turquoise trim), Frostbite(a Rose/Pink color with light Blue trim), Tiki(a few varieties of Green), and Boosted(a couple of hues of Blue with Orange trim). It’s a bit more expensive at $90.99, but not too bad of a deal considering the depth of protection it provides.
