I've never used a,waterproof case on any of my phones, and the edge doesn't have lifeproof support....would ghostek atomic 2.0 be a good alternative here? I'm never around water normally, but I love swimming and want to take some underwater videos and selfies and some storm videos as well. Any help would be great.

I already used my phone without any case in the pool and shoot some underwater videos. If this is still too risky for you. Try using something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Wat...aterproof+case

I took my Note 7 in the pool before I sent it off to die. Worked great, no indication of damage from the water.
Since I have a few GoPros I probably won't be doing that often but at least I don't have to worry about getting wet while kayaking.

Well not really.. Its IP67 so you can have it under water for 30 min up to 1.5 meter IF (and this is the big if) IF you keep it steady and dont move it to create a higher water pressure.
For proper under water photage I would use a case anyway.

Bought this from Ali. Takes awhile to get. Might be cheap, but it works. Touch response isn't bad either. Phone might be waterproof, but I take mine snorkeling in saltwater. Plus with the case you can still use touchscreen underwater.
