I thought $50 was steep for a case when I bought an Otterbox Defender for my GS4, but, it's been a lifesaver the rare occasions I've dropped my phone. The rubber exterior is fading though. It WAS highlighter pink when I bought it, and now it looks like a Fender CS pink, which is okay by me, lol.
Wish someone made a nice, sturdy case for my N72013 though. :( Otterbox does not love it. Will have to check out Lifeproof. Also, I had no idea magpul did phone cases, whoa. haha.
Oh yeah. I mean I paid the 80$ for the lifeproof iphone case. Twice actually, got one for my wife's phone as well. We first decided to try it when we were taking a trip to mexico. Decided to risk it and get some underwater shots while snorkeling. Worked like a charm, not even a bit of damage or moisture on the phone after a couple hours of snorkeling. It just sucks that the case costs about 1/3 of what the device costs...almost better off to just risk it bare-back and by a new one if anything happens.
