The Best Waterproof iPhone Case? Nuud vs Fre vs Obex vs Wetsuit vs Catalyst

 

Need a waterproof case for you iPhone? Here’s our top 5 Best waterproof iPhone 6 cases!

Waterproof iPhone cases are great for vacation but from our perspective may not be good for day-to-day usage only because every waterproof iPhone case that we’ve tested on our site will reduce the functionality of the iPhone. We’ve slowly realized that the cases listed below are more “All-Weather” cases because there are WAY BETTER cases for water-based vacations.Generally for every waterproof case, the touchscreen response will be less, sound will be muted slightly and any sort of conversation will result in people thinking that you’re taking a call in a box.

Everyone of these cases is shockproof and waterproof up to height of 6.6ft so your iPhone will be protected during any sort of water sports such as casual snorkelling and swimming. If you need something more, consider taking a look at the HitCase Pro as the case score is fairly low but it is an amazing product for people who want to take their iPhones even further as the HitCase Pro will allow you to go down to depths of 33ft, it’s GoPro mount compatible so you can mount it to your car, bike and even dog! The Optrix XD6 and ProShot case are also worth checking out. Find out the differences between these three “true” waterproof cases.

We’ve reviewed other waterproof iPhone cases so if you the one you are interested in isn’t in this list, there is a chance that we’ve reviewed it. We take pride in doing these reviews as everything that we review/film is based on our experience with the product. You won’t find us reading product descriptions and other types of marketing fluff on our site!
