The Incipio doesn't close properly with the battery cover of the phone on. If you take it off, it closes, but the screen cover doesn't contact the screen properly and loses touch sensitivity. Also, the tempered glass protector has the worst rainbowing effect imo.

So far the Lifeproof gets my vote as the best for me. I absolutely love the overall design of the Otterbox, but the speakers are a big design issue. If they come up with a fix, it'll be a hit. Out of all of them I've tried, I felt the most protected with that one. Speakers and button response though, hats off to LP.

I agree. I love my obex case. Very secure and keeps your device safe. Very waterproof, I literally run my phone under water to clean it. Screen very responsive. Only issue is the capacitive buttons take a getting used to. Require a bit more finger coverage.

About the nuud, I've read countless reviews about people saying it leaks. Totally not cool. Lol. I really suggest the obex case. Had it about a month with no major complaints.

I have the white / grey cause I don't like dark colors on my phone as they absorb sun light and heat up your device. But they are designed very nicely. Only downside is the white rubber seems to absorb the dye from my jeans xD prolly can clean that up with bleach tho.

Lifeproof build quality for the s4 cases are crap. If I could do it over again I'd probably get that liquipel thing done to my phone and get a cheap case and still come out on top.
