Today we’re having a look at a new case for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5, the LifeProof RealTree Fre. We’ve covered the LifeProof Fre before, but this new RealTree variant offers the same excellent protection with a new camouflage design.
The RealTree is so named because it has a design across the case showing a peaceful woodland scene. This design feels deep and layered, almost looking 3D. The design is an ideal choice for anyone who enjoys spending time in nature.
Otherwise, the LifeProof Fre is a solid protective case that’s ideally suited to resisting the natural hazards that threaten any smartphone. The Fre is designed to military standards, and is able to resist both water and dust with a full IP-68 rating. The double AR-coated glass covers the camera lens, protecting it from water while ensuring clear photos and videos.
Despite its protection, the Fre is a very slim case. Minimal bulk is added to the iPhone 5, and the case weighs less than 30 grams. This is a tough iPhone 5S case that you can easily fit in your pocket!
The case evens include some rare features for a protective case – it is fully compatible with the iPhone 5S’ Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and it has a special acoustic chamber that makes the iPhone 5S loudspeaker… louder. Of course, the case provides full access to all ports and features too.
The LifeProof RealTree Fre is available for pre-order now at Mobile Fun, and will be available in the coming weeks. For more information and to place your pre-order, visit the product page linked below:

Mobile Fun are happy to announce that the popular line of resist-everything LifeProof cases will soon be available for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
If you haven’t heard about LifeProof before or seen their Underground ads, here’s a quick primer – these are basically the most protective cases you can find – whether you are battling through the Amazon rainforest or the work day, your case will be protected against all kinds of potential hazards.
The LifeProof is similar to the Otterbox Defender and Case-Mate Tough Case for resisting scratches and impact damage, but beats out these models by providing additional protection elsewhere.That’s by providing IP-68 rated water and dust ingress protection, the highest possible rating awarded. You’ll be able to immerse your phone in up to 2 metres of water continuously and use your phone in sandy environments without issues.
Two models will be available – the LifeProof Nuud Case and the LifeProof Fre Case. The difference between the two is that the Fre includes a screen protector, while the Nuud goes without – you can choose either a completely accessible naked screen or a more protected option.
Whichever model you choose, you’ll still benefit from some seriously impressive protection and a clever design. Both cases are relatively slim given their abilities, and include port cutouts and button covers. Surprisingly, the LifeProof case will also make your Galaxy S4 sound better, thanks to some clever acoustic work that allows the rear of the case to work as a kind of amplifier.
On launch, these LifeProof cases will be the best Galaxy S4 cases on the market for ensuring your phone stays in perfect condition, no matter what happens.

If you’ve been looking for the ultimate protection for your iPhone 5, we’ve got the answer. We’re now shipping the LifeProof Indestructible Case – the very best protective cases you can get for the iPhone 5 – in both black and white.
This Lifeproof iPhone 5 case is fantastic – it provides unparalleled protection from all manner of natural hazards, including drops, scratches, water, dust, dirt and pretty much anything else you’d care to name.
It’s made from a soft waterproof material, and completely enclosed to ensure that nothing can get in. That means you can use your iPhone 5 underwater, at a depth of up to two metres. That’s brilliant for underwater photography. The back of the phone is also designed to act as a subwoofer to improve the bass and mid response of your music.
The screen is protected too, with double AR-coated optical glass that protects against scratches and liquid ingress without obscuring your view or affecting the touch screen.
For the protection it provides, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this would be a massive bulky case. Thankfully, the LifeProof case isn’t that big, adding only a few millimetres for your phone and adding a soft grip finish that’ll make it easy to handle. You’ll still be able to fit the phone in your pocket or bag without issue.
You really can’t find a better protective case for the iPhone 5 that offers so many features in such a small package.
For more information, please check out the LifeProof product pages linked below. These cases tend to sell out quickly, so be forewarned!

Last week we showed you the LifeProof case for the third generation iPad, and today we’ve got something even more exciting – the LifeProof Indestructible Case for the iPhone 5. This was one of our most popular cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S, and we expect it to be equally sought after for the iPhone 5.
The LifeProof case really lives up to its name by providing a full complement of protection from all kinds of dangers, including the more standard fare like drops, scratches and knocks, but also includes resistance against water and dust. The LifeProof case even meets US and UK military standards, with an IP-68 rating that ensures complete and lasting protection of your iPhone 5 in even the harshest of environments. The screen protection is also top-notch, with a double AR-coated optical glass addition that provides a crystal clear view and even works underwater – no extra iPhone 5 screen protector needed here.
Unlike a lot of other protective iPhone 5 covers, the clever design of the LifeProof case allows it to be not much bigger than a normal slimline case, so you’re not unduly sacrificing the impressive size and weight of the new iPhone. The LifeProof case is sleek and convenient, with an easy grip material that makes it easy to hold onto your phone no matter the weather. Finally, the case includes full access to the ports, buttons and features of the phone without exposing these items to the elements – perfect.
The LifeProof Indestructible case is available for pre-order now from Mobile Fun, and comes in both white and black colour options to match your iPhone 5. For more information, including more detailed specifications and additional photos, please visit the product pages linked below:

We quite often get asked what the best selling iPhone 4/4S cases are why. Usually we find that quality, style and hard wearing protection lead to a phone case being popular, therefore it’s no surprise that our current top three iPhone 4/4S cases all have protection and style at heart:
Twelve South BookBook Case
We’ve spoken about this case before but the popularity of the BookBook iPhone 4 case just doesn’t seem to be waning.
Manufactured from top quality leather, this case isn’t just a case! Inside the BookBook iPhone case is a wallet with the ability to store three cards. There’s even a handy ID slot so that you can show your ID without having to rummage around to find it.
Styled to perfection to look like a vintage work of fiction, the BookBook case is highly protective, stylish and made from the best quality materials, so it’s no surprise it features in our top three.
The case protects every angle of your iPhone when it’s not in use, even the screen, helping to keep it looking newer for longer. All of the features of your iPhone 4/4S are still accessible whilst in the BookBook but in order to use the camera you just have to pull the red tab to move your iPhone a quarter of an inch higher, meaning the lens is free.
Slim and sleek, the BookBook hardly adds any bulk to your iPhone, so it’s still a pocketable case, with full access to your iPhone. No longer will you need to take a bag to the shops, simply pick up the BookBook and your keys and you’re good to go.
Griffin Survivor Case
The daddy case of protection, the Griffin Survivor has proved its worth many a time. From being blown up on The Gadget Show, to being ran over and thrown from building, this case has been tested to the max.
This case is made to both UK and US Military standards so it means business and can protect your iPhone from even the most extreme of conditions: wind, rain, dirt, dust, vibrations and anything else Mother Nature has to throw at it.
Built from a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame clad in rugged and shock absorbing silicone, this case even comes with a built in screen protector, so your screen is always protected but still completely accessible.
One of the great features about this case is that it has hinged plugs for all the cut-outs like the headphone socket and charging port to ensure that they’re fully protected and accessible at all times.
The perfect case for those who frequently play sports, work outside or simply enjoy the outdoors, the Griffin Survivor case can face any challenge you throw at it, without allowing any damage to come to your iPhone.
LifeProof Indestructible Case
The LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case range are pretty new to Mobile Fun but already they’ve proved to be a sell out range.
Available in either black or white, these cases are not only up to UK and US military standards, with an IP-68 water and dust protection rating but do so without adding a large amount of bulk to your phone. In fact they only add 1.5mm of thickness to your iPhone and add a whole load of protection in return.
Built to withstand the forces of snow, water, dust, dirt, drops, bumps and anything else life might throw at your iPhone, the LifeProof iPhone 4 cases truly do give you the freedom to use your iPhone anywhere.
Like the Griffin Survivor, this case comes complete with a built in screen protector – an AR-coated optical glass lens to be precise. This screen protection means that you can take your iPhone up to two metres underwater without causing any damage to it. You can capture videos and images like never before.
A stunning, sleek case with plugs for all the ports, so they’re still accessible, the LifeProof case really deos prove that protection doesn’t have to equal bulk.
