An opening with sealing mechanism, is fitted to the top of the case to allow your smartphone access into the case. Two clips are used to apply pressure to the sealing surfaces of the case opening. You need to push these clips quite firmly, using a thumb and a finger, to start them turning, although this is somewhat reassuring that the seal is being held quite tight and needs an initial force to break it's hold. When a sufficient gap appears, you can fully disengage each clip using your thumb nail, thus allowing the case to fully-open.
Before committing your valued smartphone into the case and submersing it, it's advisable to test the integrity of the case first, by placing a sheet of absorbent paper (kitchen paper, blotting paper or tissue will suffice) and then seal the case. Place the case into a container of water and fully submerge it for around ten minutes. I added a small amount of dye to the water to make it easier to detect if the case had leaked. On inspection, the paper was bone-dry !
A lanyard is also provided with this waterproof case. This attaches to the top part of the case.
There are numerous applications for this case e.g. with a smartphone installed, which gives excellent waterproof protection when used in the following applications:
1) Showers or baths..
2) Sandy beaches.
3) Dusty environments.
4) Camping, Fishing or other land-based, outdoor activities.
5) Cyclists / Motorcyclists garments.
6) Outdoor occupations: Construction sites, Road maintenance, Delivery services, etc.
7) Water-based activities, e.g. canoeing, sailing, swimming etc.
My tests with this case included photo's and video shots underwater, using my LG L40 smartphone sealed inside. It was quite easy to control using the LG's touch screen through the transparent sides of the case. The only minor problem I discovered was bringing this particular LG phone out of standby using the touch screen. The LG L40 has a method called a 'knock code' (a predetermined sequence of taps on the screen) which wakes-up the phone. The layer of plastic of this case prevents the phone from detecting this code. Pressing the Home screen button has the same effect, so it's not really too important, but worth noting if you intend to use this make of smartphone with this case.
After using this waterproof case, dry it thoroughly (if wet) and release the sealing clips, especially if the case isn't going to be used for an extended period. This should help to preserve the longevity of the seal, as the sealing surfaces aren't being forced together (less stressed) in this condition.
I was kindly provided with this item by the manufacturer for evaluation and unbiased review.
Naturally you wouldn't test it with your phone inside, I used a couple of sheets of kitchen paper to test it first of all. After I'd spent several minutes 'drowning' the case in the bath by pushing it to the bottom (of the bath, not my bot....well let's move on), I left it to soak for around 30 minutes while we ate. Returning after we'd eaten, the paper towels were as dry as they were in the kitchen. All well and good, I moved on to the next experiment. Taking one of the kid's old phones, I placed it in the case etc etc popped it in the bath and toddled off to work. When I arrived home that evening I went to check on the phone and it too was still dry. I should point out that there was no way I was taking it on holiday with me unless I was 100% sure that it was safe and would keep things dry inside.
So, I knew that the case did it's job and I knew that a phone could last at least a day inside the case without any detrimental effects. Although I like the sea and swimming, there was no way at all I was planning on spending eight hours in the water, so as far as I'm concerned, this case passed all of its tests with flying colours. Of course, using your phone/camera underwater could get you some fantastic shots in the right part of the World. Then I started to think about how it could be useful in other ways..
..It would certainly enable you to use your camera underwater as it has clear view plastic on both sides. The plastic is large enough to allow you to read your phone messages or to alow you to press buttons on your camera. It would also let you use an MP3 player or carry items such as important documents or credit/debit cards without getting them wet. Don't think of it as 'just' a phone case unless you're happy to keep it locked away for 50 weeks of the year. Use it at the pool all year round or maybe let the kids use it if they insist on going out in the rain.
It's a great idea from TouchAbility and it's well made so will last a very long time. I've seen some other phone cases around but not this 'roomy' and definitely not this hardwearing. I would recommend this to anyone but I'd make sure they thought about other ways they could use it too.
