Merit Waterproof iPhone 6+ 5.5” Case Review And Hand-On

I have previously tested and reviewed waterproof phone cases from Merit for the iPhone 6 4.7″ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. In both of the those reviews I gave positive feedback for the cases, and I will do the same here.

PRICE: .99

This is a great case for . I will get that out of the way first. There are other more expensive alternatives for waterproof phone cases. For this case does the job. It protects your phone from water.

That being said, I would not use this case as my everyday phone case. Never. But… if I know I will be near water, this case will go on my iPhone 6+. The cases does protect the phone very well from water intrusion. I have tested these cases using the {soak test” where I place a dry paper towel in the case and leave the whole case submerged for and hour. And in each test, the case does not leak.

So, here are the cons…
Sound quality is greatly diminished using this case. The case has all kind of coverings to keep water out. It also keeps out sound (nor does it let it in). People will have a really hard time hearing you with this case on. I fix this by using a Bluetooth headset. Then I have no call issues.

You need a really small power lightning cable tip to fit into this case. Again… if you are using this case for a few hours in or around water, this should not be an issue.

Opening the case is not easy. Merit provides a tool (it looks like a plastic pepper) to help open the case. A quarter will also do the job.
But… this is not really a bad thing as you want this case securely on your phone.

Operating your phone through the case was not a problem for me. It worked well.

The package comes with an audio extender, and a wrist strap.
