    I have it and people are complaining about not being able to hear and an echo during phone calls. Still testing it out though. I originally had the Otterbox Defender and did not like how the screen protector was cut out at the top and also did not fit snuggly to the screen.

    You must have missed LizMac's post in the other case thread: http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid-turbo/875651-cases.html#post6770048

    I have to say that it might be best just to find some time to go into a Verizon Wireless store and look for yourself. Every time I've been interested in a case, the salespeople at the store were more than willing to remove one from the packaging to let me see how the phone was with it.

    maybe i will do that. I was just hoping that there were more people on here who purchased the case and can give me an actual use review instead of just a quick in store look

    I'm about to return my lifeproof case. I really liked the one I had for iPhone 5s, but this one needs to be redesigned. When it comes to ringers and alarm notifications it sounds muffled. I don't know how many calls I have missed when the phone was in my pocket.

    The other issue is the buttons on the bottom, it seems like I have to turn my thumb sideways to get the buttons to recognize my touching.

    Hopefully they'll come out with a better designed one soon. Also it hopefully they'll come out with more colored options.

    Hey everyone I broke down and purchased the lifeproof case. So far I like it. I do notice the issue with the bottom buttons but so far it's not to big of a deal. Overall o haven't had any other issues. What I am worried about is that I am not a fan of screen protectors so I am hoping that lifeproof designed a nuud series for this case. Fingers crossed!!!

    I believe that LP jumped the gun on putting these cases out. My first one, (day of phone release) just did not work. Both Mic and speakers were covered and home button was just a pain to get to. I took it back to store and traded it for another of the same case; tested it in the store before I left, and this one works fine. I feel as if they could shave off a bit of the case where it comes up to the capacitive buttons, and could be an issue if you have big hands. I dunno.... I suggest fitting it onto the phone at the store.

    Ditto for more color options!

    Okay, I gonna tell ya'll. I love LP cases, but I have removed mine and may not go back to it. Here's why: my daughter was in a panic about college applications and kept texting me while I was driving -- my LP case would NOT let me listen to the texts...ever. No matter how loud I SHOUTED "LISTEN" into the phone (while in driving mode). It never played one text. Also would not respond to my voice command. Sooooo.... goodbye case. I love the waterproof feature, but what use is it if I can't use my voice commands? Sorry Lifeproof.

    i have one for extreme water, and weather and conditions only. It is by no means a daily driver. Frankly, they should rename the product SoundProof®

    I agree i was very excited for this case since i had one on my galaxy s4 and loved it but it was so bad i returned the case. Life proof really dropped the ball on this one.

    I just received my Fre case for the 64g Ballistic nylon Droid Turbo I own. I'm not sure if maybe the first production wave of these cases were bad batches or what but i have had no issues with the functionality of this case at period! Everything works pretty flawless, sound quality is loud and clear, all the buttons work when pressed etc,...

    I use the Otterbox Defender and simply removed the terrible screen protector. It is really good but of course no liquid protection.

    I have to second this. I was about to say the same thing. I broke down and purchased one at the beginning of last week because i was getting annoyed by my otter box defender because i took the screen protector off and it became flimsy so i decided to give it a try again. The lifeproof case looks the same as before in this thread when i posted picture but everything works i don't have a problem hearing people while im on a call, they don't have any problem hearing me, music is not drowned out as much as it was with the first production run plus it is the best protection case for drops that i have used. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask because they worked the problem out of this run and the phone works as designed with the case installed. And for reference i ordered this case from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/LifeProof-Dro...9658852&sr=8-1&keywords=droid+turbo+lifeproof
