Which Lifeproof cover do you need?

For a cover that protects against more than light scratches, you are good at Lifeproof. This manufacturer is known for its robust covers for Samsung and Apple. The Lifeproof Fre and Nuud covers are somewhat larger but offer the most protection; think of water resistance and fall protection. With the thinner Next and Slam covers, the original design of your phone is more visible.

In short

Lifeproof under water

In short, the Lifeproof covers can be divided into two groups. Fre and Nuud offer the most protection and are, for example, waterproof. The difference between these two is that Lifeproof Fre cases also have a built-in screen protector. The Next and Slam covers offer less complete protection, but are somewhat thinner and transparent, so you can continue to see the design of your phone better. Curious about what the differences are exactly? Then read on quickly.

Lifeproof Fre and Nuud

Lifeproof Fre

Lifeproof Fre: ultimate protection

Are you going to surf or join a mud run soon and do you want optimal protection for your phone? Lifeproof Fre cases offer complete protection for your phone: the sturdy back cover has a built-in screen protector, so your screen remains free from scratches. In addition, the Lifeproof Fre is waterproof; you use your phone according to Lifeproof for one hour at a depth of 2 meters. The cover also keeps dust and mud out and protects your phone in the event of a fall of up to 2 meters.

Lifeproof Nuud

Lifeproof Nuud: work directly on your screen

For some older iPhones and iPads, Lifeproof also has the Nuud covers. Even with a Nuud case, you can use your phone with confidence under water, in the snow and in the mud. The big difference with Fre is that Nuud does not have a built-in screen protector. Your screen remains free and the operation of your touchscreen is smooth. The disadvantage is that there may be scratches on your screen.

Lifeproof Next and Slam

Lifeproof Next

Lifeproof Next: less striking protection

You do not have to swim with your phone under water, but do you for example go mountain biking or winter sports and do you want protection against splashing water, snow, mud and dust? That is what the Lifeproof Next is suitable for. This case also offers fall protection in the event of a fall of up to 2 meters. An advantage of this case compared to the Fre and Nuud is that it is thinner and has a transparent back. So you can see more of the original design of your device.

Lifeproof Slam

Lifeproof Slam: the thinnest cover

If you want fall protection, but also want to continue to see the slim design of your device, Lifeproof Slim is for you. This case protects your phone in the event of a fall of up to 2 meters, but is not waterproof or dustproof. Because the case is slightly thicker than your phone, your screen never lies directly on the table; that prevents scratches. The Slam is the thinnest Lifeproof case and has a transparent back; this does the most justice to the original design of your device.
