Summary

Watertight, easy to close, doesn't interfere with phone's capacitive touch features nor camera. Hard to see through case when using around salt water (dried salt deposits do wash off easily however).

Pros

  • Watertight
  • Easy to close
  • Capacitive touch features work perfect through case
  • Perfectly fits Galaxy s4
  • Can hear music playing though case

Cons

  • Hard to see through case when using around salt water (dried salt deposits)
  • Water droplets on plastic can make it hard for your smartphone camera to focus (hard to take photos during rainstorms)

This case is water tight (I've only tested it in 5 foot swimming pools, tested for about an hour, bone dry phone inside) and easy to close (think large ziplock bag).

Capacitive touch works perfect through case's plastic. My phone actually seems to respond better when it is touch through this case. Love the large plastic windows on both sides so it doesn't matter which side I put the camera/front of phone at.

I do like having the lock button on the side without the zip-lock seal. Can take great pictures with phone inside this case. It can become hard to see through this case when using around salt water (bays, oceans) when the splashes evaporate and leave mineral deposits behind. A splash of fresh water easily cleans it up though.

The size perfectly fits the Galaxy s4 (some extra space for the phone to move around, but nothing ridiculous).

I can hear music playing though the closed case so I see no need to get one with a headphone jack (because I have no waterproof speaker-type devices anyways). If you want the headphone jack, see the eSeries Case 9.
