The LifeProof Fre is the tougher case as it has a screen protector and the Nuud doesn't. Both the Fre and Nuud are waterproof and shockproof up to 6.6 ft but if you were to drop the LifeProof Nuud face first without the screen protector, your screen is going to break.
Similarly, you may ask, is the Slam LifeProof case waterproof?
LifeProof intros new slim Slam iPhone case. Now that the new iPhones are waterproof, LifeProof is having to make more fashionable cases. When phones started becoming waterproof, LifeProof lost a little bit of its raison d'être.
Can you use your phone in the shower with a LifeProof case?
Lifeproof says the case should be able to resist water ingress 1 hour at a depth of 2 meters (6.6 feet). Therfore, it should be safe to take it in the shower with you, BUT Water resistant cases - even highly water resistant cases like Lifeproof - are not waterproof and are not water resistant indefinitely.
Make sure your Lifeproof case has been water tested and is on properly. A Lifejacket is also useful so your phone won't sink of you drop it. Your touch screen won't work underwater. Once your phone is underwater the screen is useless, even if only partially submerged.
Called Screenless Technology, LifeProof's patent pending design for the nüüd uses a compression lock system to form a waterproof seal between the case and my phone's touchscreen This allows me to touch the actual screen without a barrier between it and my fingers but yet still allows it to be fully protected from water
The case is snow proof, waterproof, dirt proof, and shock proof. The case is IP-68 certified, which means that the case is rated for water immersion to 6.6 feet for 1 hour. The LifeProof Nüüd is also tested to Military Standard 810G-516.6, which ensures that your phone is totally protected from drops.
The LifeProof case is made of a tough polycarbonate frame and shock absorbing elastomer for a high degree of shock and impact protection. A benefit (or a downside) to the polycarbonate is that it doesn't grip. This means that it slides in and out of a pocket easily, but definitely moves around on the dash of a vehicle.
30 meters' water-resistant: means daily life waterproof. It does not mean the watch can be used in 30-meters' deep water. This watch can withstand moderate water, can be completely soaked in water, but you cannot swim underwater with this watch; 100 meters' water-resistant: shallow swimming standard.
What does FRE stand for?

Headquartered in San Diego, California, LifeProof is a consumer electronics accessory company acquired in 2013 by OtterBox. The company designs, manufactures, and markets cases that protect smartphone and tablet functionality and condition from water, snow, dirt, and shock.
OtterBox exits waterproof cases, leaves it to LifeProof. OtterBox Preserver waterproof case won't be made for new phones, but still available for iPhone 5/5s and Galaxy S5. Its Preserver line — which is “fully submergible up to 6.6 ft. for up to 30 minutes,” the product page once said — has vanished from the web site.
Flip the case over, so the back is facing upward. Then, turn the bottom of the phone so that it is facing away from your body. Grab a dime or penny. Insert it into the small slot to the left of the charge port.
The popular LifeProof case joins the OtterBox family. If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em. OtterBox, which struggled for months to bring a waterproof iPhone case to market, has acquired rival LifeProof, which makes one of the best -- and best-selling -- tough iPhone cases.

- Samsung Galaxy S8.
- Lenovo Vibe P1M.
- HTC U11.
- LG G6.
- Motorola Moto G5.

THE WATERPROOF Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is, er, not waterproof, according to water. Samsung's non-Active Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have waterproof credentials, and the firm claimed that the rugged S7 Active, as its "toughest" smartphone ever, takes this up a notch.
THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 arrives touting IP67 certification, which means much like Sony's Xperia Z smartphone, it's designed to be resistant against dust, drops and most importantly water. With IP67 certification, Samsung claims the Galaxy S5 can withstand being submerged in up to one metre of water for up to 30 minutes.
The bottom line is that Apple didn't highlight waterproofing as a new feature because the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus aren't waterproof. They may be mildly water resistant, and may be able to survive a speedy dunk, if King Neptune gets a proper grip on your shiny new handset, it's history.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are rated as being IP67 splash, water and dust resistant under IEC standard 60529. That means the iPhone 7 can survive being submerged in just over three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. There is also fine print about “water.”
Case in point: The new flagship iPhones are the exact same size as last year's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, respectively. They're a bit lighter, but the iPhone 7 still measures 138.3mm x 67.1mm x 7.1mm, while the iPhone 7 Plus is still at 158.2mm x 77.9mm x 7.3mm. The display sizes haven't changed, either.
It's the freshest iPhone design since Apple released the iPhone 6 in 2014, and it looks downright gorgeous. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.
Yes, the dimensions are exactly the same as the iPhone 6s, and almost exactly the same as the iPhone 6. It is microscopically thicker and the iPhone 7 Plus is microscopically taller than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, respectively. It is 100% the same as the iPhone 6 in terms of thickness and length.
The technical specifications on Apple's website for the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7 (including all the Plus models), suggest they have they exact same dimensions. The buttons are all in the same place, and despite the lack of a 3.5mm jack for analog headphones, your old case should, theoretically, fit the new model.
