Highly protective waterproof iPhone 5s case for all those spontaneous moments of fun.
 

Why are there two protruding notches/nubs on the side by the volume and mute buttons?

Is this providing some sort of function. At first glance this is the only aesthetically displeasing thing about the case.
My assumption is that those are for grip in pool or ocean scenarios, so you don't end up losing hold; and also for protection if it were to drop on its side.

Is the fingerprint scanner still functional with this case?

How is the finger print scanner accessible if it's a waterproof case. It doesn't actually say anything about it in the specs etc.
Fingerprint is fully functional; however, I re-calibrated my fingerprint settings WITH the case on after installing. Had trouble reading my fingerprint from pre-installation.

My opinion is they did that for 2 reasons:

To grip the case better in underwater conditions like pool or ocean

To protect the side buttons if it were to fall on its side

How is the sound quality?

I had the Lifeproof fre case and the sound quality was bad, and I have the defender series. I frequently use the sound for music without headphones.
This case is 10x that of Lifeproof's- sound quality is decent, the sound on phone calls can be a little rustled at times however.

But its an Otterbox. Under Water. Can't have it all!

Will the preserver case fit the iPhone 5C as well? 5S and 5C are very similar.

Meant for iPhone 5, 5s I do believe

How is it waterproof if the bottom speakers are exposed?

There is a thin, yet durable black piece of plastic covering the inside case speakers. The open-able flap on the button for charging has holes, yes, but the black film inside enables sound to come out and water to stay out.

How thick is it

I was wondering what the dimensions are
I'm too lazy for specifics; very slightly less width than 2 standard pencils on top each other.

Lol hope that gives rough idea.

How is the touch screen under water? Like does it work well?

Under-water use can be difficult, especially in warm water; the heat-sensitive screens are hard to manage in those conditions like in a shower.

How does the fingerprint ID work with case?

I can not tell by the pictures shown, but is the touch ID sensor exposed? Or is it covered by something?
From my experiences, such as attempting to browse Facebook or YouTube in the shower; the hot water does significantly hinder use of the touch screen. Water droplets from my hair have actually clicked on links and were rendered as fingerprint touches to the screen.

Hope this helps!
