Overall, this is a great case that offers outstanding protection. It withstands drops just like advertised. I'm sure it will withstand as much downward pressure as advertised (not quite willing to drive across it) and the waterproofness is as stated. Extremely easy to install (clean your phone, place inside the cover, & close the 2 latches; no stretching and twisting to get things just right). It fits my hand, although I can see where it could be a touch large for those with smaller hands. The lanyard is a nice touch, just not too "manly". All of the ports are all easily accessible; no problem when charging or inserting earbuds. Finally, I appreciate the clean lines and the fact that there is not too much rubber around the edge.
Having said that, there are a couple of things I think could be better. I had to file a warranty claim (Otterbox could not have been more easy to work with). Because I often carry the phone in my back jeans pocket, the rubber coating that encases the outside edge of the phone separated from the case over the latches (you will have to see the case to know where I mean). This in no way takes away from the protection; it's more or less a cosmetic thing.
I have also noticed that my phone apparently doesn't always recognize that it is against my face and will sometimes mute or switch to facetime during a conversation (cheek contacts the corresponding "button"). I spoke to the phone's manufacturer about this and they told me that Otterbox is not on their "approved" list. When I asked them what they had that was on this list, all they could show me was some cases that offer no protection, other than to protect the rear of the phone from scratches. When I asked them if they have no cases that really protect the phone because they would rather sell phones than protect phones, all they could do was shrug their shoulders.
Pros: ease of installation, right size, high degree of protection
Cons: lends itself to slight cosmetic damage

Will the case float with an iPhone 5 inside?

No, this case will not float with a phone inside. Don't drop the phone in water that is too deep for retrieval.
