I was looking for an IPhone five case that offered serious protection and the Amor series offers just that and more. My cellphone has slipped out of my hands on a few occasion, and I'm very happy that it was in the Amor series case because the case is design to take falls, bumps and much more. Once my cellphone fell while in the garage of my apartment building on the solid concrete and the only thing that was scratched was the case and not the phone. The water test was a success and I have even used by cellphone while it was raining outside and the case has lived up to its reputation of being waterproof as well. I have tried both the Lifeproof and Ballistic Hydra series cases, but they cannot be compared to the OtterBox Amor Series case. The previous two cases offered waterproof protection but very poor communication clarity when making and receiving phone calls. While I did encounter some clarity issues with the Amore Series intermittently, it was easily resolved by fixing the covering inside the case where you speak into. Even though the Otterbox case does not come with a holster like the Ballistics Hydra series case, or the Lifeproof case that you can purchase the holster separately. It still is an overall well built case and anyone purchasing it would not have any regrets. Plus in the line of work I do, it is great to have a cellphone case that can standup to the punishment of the day-in and day-out of my job.
The case does come with a lanyard which should have been included in the original package with the case. If not I would recommend you taking it back to where you made the purchase and inform them of the missing lanyard. If not contact the company directly and I'm sure they would be happy to send you a replacement lanyard.
