Now the LifeProof waterproof case is available for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Really, if you have a Galaxy S3 and want to protect it from immersion, rain, spills, drops, snow, dust, and the general knocks and bumps life can deal to your delicate smartphone, that’s all you need to know. Get yourself a LifeProof Fre or Nuud case, put your Galaxy S III in it, and increase your peace of mind.
I know there are guys out there who have been eagerly awaiting the release of the LifeProof case for the Samsung Galaxy S III ever since the company previewed the case at the South by Southwest Conference (SXSW) last March. I think the people at LifeProof wanted to make sure they could offer the Galaxy S3 case in both Fre and Nuud versions, so it took until now for both versions to be ready.
The wait was worth it.
For those who might not be familiar with LifeProof , the company has been receiving numerous awards and accolades for its waterproof smartphone cases from tech reviewers, the general press, and customers ever since they first came out with waterproof cases for the iPhone in 2011. Since then, the company has continued to refine and improve their products, and has added waterproof cases for the iPod and iPad. Since the Galaxy S3 is one of the most popular smartphones in the world, it only made sense for the company’s first foray into the Android-based smartphone-protection market to be a waterproof, drop-proof, dirt-proof, and snow-proof case for the Galaxy.
I know, I know… now you want one for the Galaxy S4. Well, be a little patient.
In the meantime, for those of you who want robust — the company terms it “military-grade” — protection for your Galaxy S III, the wait is over and you can get either the LifeProof Fre case or the LifeProof Nuud case for the Galaxy S III.
What’s the difference? The LifeProof Fre (pronounced “free”) case provides waterproof protection for your phone down to a depth of 6 feet. The case includes a scratch-proof touchscreen guard. The LifeProof Nuud (pronounced “nude”) case also protects your phone down to a depth of 6 feet, but utilizes LifeProof’s technology that enables you to directly access your touchscreen — that is, you can still touch the screen with your finger with no cover in the way.
It’s pretty cool. You can see much more detail about how the LifeProof Fre case and the LifeProof Nuud case work for the Galaxy S3 on the LifeProof site. The LifeProof Fre for Galaxy S3 is $79.99 and the LifeProof Nuud is $89.99. That’s really not too expensive when you consider not only how well these cases protect your phone but also the amount of concern about damaging your phone you’ll be relieved of when it’s in a LifeProof case. Thousands of satisfied customers can attest to this. Not only that, a lot of people think the LifeProof cases make their Galaxy S3 phones look cooler. A case that actually enhances a smarphone’s appearance is a rare thing. Here’s a quick video made by NJTechReviews when they met with LifeProof at the 2013 CE Week in New York City that covers the main features of the LifeProof Nuud case for the Galaxy S3:
You can’t go wrong with either of these top-rated, reliable waterproof phone cases.
