Saw that Lifeproof came out with 2 waterpoof cases for the S4. The rest of my family are iPhone users & have had the Lifeproof cases with good results. I decided I'd try the nuud since it's different and without a screen cover/membrane. I did test it prior to installing but haven't since. Very similar to the Otterbox commuter I was using in appearance (from the front) and added bulk. Here's to hoping it IS waterproof if my phone is ever splashed etc.
