You expect a waterproof iPhone 6 case to add a lot of bulk to the phone and make using it with one hand impossible, but the LifeProof iPhone 6 case is not much thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus in a slim Apple Leather case.

Using the LifeProof iPhone 6 case with one hand takes a few adjustments, but it is still easy to do. In some cases it is easier because you can grip the iPhone 6 in the case with one hand easier than you can without a case on it.

The design obscures the new curved design of the iPhone 6, but it does look nice and the raised edge combines with a built-in screen protector to keep the screen safe from scratches.

The screen still looks nice and is easy to use with the built-in screen protector.

The LifeProof iPhone 6 case protected the iPhone 6 from water in a shower and while doing dishes. It also provided great protection from the snow during short trips to shovel and longer outings to play in and enjoy the snow in Ohio. Although we didn’t go overboard with testing the protection from drops, the case protected it easily from waist level to hard and carpeted surfaces.

You can use Touch ID with this waterproof iPhone 6 case, but it is not as reliable as using Touch ID with no case on. Even with the raised edges around the screen, it is easy to use the built-in gestures. The built-in screen protector isn’t as nice as a glass one, but it still works well and looks good.

You can still use Touch ID, but it is not as reliable.

There is a headphone jack cover that you need to unscrew to plug-in headphones. The cover remains attached to the case so you don’t lose it. You can plug a pair of Apple EarPods in without the included adapter if you don’t need it to be waterproof, but you’ll need the free adapter to keep water out and to use other headphones.

A small flap folds down for access to the Lightning port. This flap came off when I forgot to un-snap this before taking the case off, but it is easy to put back in place and you can avoid this by remembering to open this before removing the case.

The buttons are easy to use and the case is thin.

The buttons are easy to use and the case is still relatively thin.

The speaker and microphone are covered and it does degrade audio quality and volume some, but for the protection it delivers it is a trade-off we can easily make. It helps that LifeProof improved the sound with the case on from earlier designs. All of the buttons are easy to access, with a handy toggle that makes switching to silent mode incredibly easy.

The LifeProof iPhone 6 case is an excellent way to protect the iPhone 6 and it is an essential accessory for users that need a waterproof iPhone 6 or who don’t want to buy AppleCare+ for protection.
