The iPhone X is just as vulnerable as any other smartphone when it comes to accidents. Dropping it onto a hard surface could result in a smashed screen or frame, while accidentally dropping it into a toilet won’t do it any good (hey, it could happen). A regular case might offer peace of mind, but it won’t do the job. Catalyst’s Waterproof Case for iPhone X offers peace of mind because it really does do the job.
Designed in a stealth black color, the Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone X quickly fits over the iPhone X, barely adding weight and thickness and certainly not inhibiting use of the OLED touchscreen. The construction also aids in making the audio emitting from the built-in speakers more audible than expected: rather than muffling sound as found in convention cases, here the sound gets amplified. No it doesn’t take the place of using an external speaker if loud volume in the aim, but it does make avoidance of having to wear headphones a done deal. Looking at the back, you can see the camera lens is mated with a hard coated dual optical lens. And that you rotate a knob to mute the phone and use the over-sized Lightning port when it’s time to give it the phone’s battery some electricity.
So the iPhone is now encased and ready to meet the world — filled with any number of hard surfaces just waiting for for a phone to fall onto. Now you might say that all that needs be done is to wrap the included lanyard around the wrist, but how many people actually do that? Most people carry their phone in a pocket, after all. So the NAME had better be really good at handling sudden impact. It is. Providing that the distance between where the phone started and where it ends thanks to gravity, a military drop standard of 6.6 feet (2 meters) will handle things just fine.
So what about the other issue – water? The case is rated IP68 — a designation that says you can submerge the case all the way down to 33 feet without worry of the contents (i.e., the phone) feeling any wetness. Obviously you don’t leave it at the bottom of the pool, in the toilet, etc — but there’s certainly time to grab it back out and breathe a sigh of relief. It’s the highest waterproof standard on the market, as noted by Catalyst and they should know.
The Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone X isn’t just waterproof — its clear housing adds dirt and sand and snow (solidified water) to the list of things in the world to be protected from. All this and a retail of $89.99 makes it a good choice for tagging along with your iPhone X.
