I've been trying to hold out on buying a Lp for my s5 hoping for a nuud version to come out. Someone in this thread said that on the Lp Facebook page that they won't be making one. Can someone else definitely confirm that Lp has no intention of making the nuud version for the s5?

I can confirm that statement. I messaged them about the release date of the Nuud to be told that they have no plans on releasing a Nuud version of the Lifeproof case for the Galaxy S 5. I was saddened as well because I've been waiting on it myself.

That seems strange. They did it for the S4. Does any one know why?

If you think about it, how could the make the nuud? There would be no way to seal around the home button. If they did, obviously the fingerprint scanner would be useless.

I would think they do it the same way they did it for the iPhone 5s. A clear cutout for the finger print scanner

I bought this case and I can confirm that accessing the charging port is very difficult. If you bite your nails or cut them short you'll never open it without a tool lol. The case itself though is fairly lightweight and comfortable. Other than the charging port I like the case a lot. I also like the fact that it double the phones IP67 rating to IP68 therefore providing water-proofing and shock-proofing up to 6.6ft. I do not plan on testing water resistance depths personally though but it'll be nice to use around the pool and not worry about the kids splashing it.

The charging port plug on the s5 is actually removable. If you remove the back you can use a small Phillips head to remove a small panel on the back. Then you can safely remove the plug. That way you only have to deal with the Lp case's door
