- What's Included
The mortal enemy of the Smartphone has always been water. These wonderfully fun devices are attached to us at the hip but when our daily activities take us to such places as a beach, lake or pool we either need to not bring them with or hide them somewhere we perceive to be safe from water and sand. This, however, is now a problem of the past. The TIDE Waterproof Smartphone Case from Aryca is designed to safely protect Droid Smartphone's from sand, snow and water. This waterproof case is IPX8 certified which means it will protect the contents within even while submersed in water. With this case you can safely bring your Smartphone underwater with you up to 20 feet (6 meters) and use it to snap underwater pictures or take videos. The case has a clear silicon protective membrane on the front which supports touch screen giving the phone full functionality to still text or make calls. Even if the idea of bringing a phone underwater makes you tremble the case can at least bring peace of mind that your phone will be safe when brought around water. By also protecting the phone from sand, places such as the beach, river or lake are no longer a cell phone danger zone. Also included with the TIDE Waterproof Smartphone Case is a floating lanyard that attaches to the top of the case. Keeping with the peace of mind theme, this helps make sure that your phone won't sink whether it is brought into the water on purpose or falls in accidentally.
The case uses a twist locking design to open it and then securely seal it shut. To open, unlock the side latch and twist the top counterclockwise and then once the Smartphone has been placed inside close the case, turn the top clockwise and re-snap the latch. The case is compatible with most 4G Smartphone models. Want to know if yours is one? The internal dimensions of the TIDE Waterproof Case are 4.88" x 2.70" x 0.55". Refer to the Specifications tab for a chart of compatible Smartphone's provided by Aryca. Have an iPhone? Check out the iPhone compatible Waterproof Case.

I'll quickly get to the point so you don't have to read more than you want to, it works! I had a chance to sample the TIDE Smartphone Case as well as the ECO MarineCase for the iPhone and in my testing they each worked perfectly. My Smartphone happened to be a little too big for the TIDE and I don't have an iPhone so for testing I used a dollar bill and credit card for each case. In the instructions are directions on how to test the case beforehand to ensure it works. This is critical because it'll let you know ahead of time if the case is working correctly or if it is defective. Make sure to do this. I submerged the case in a bucket of water for a few minutes and then let it float in the water for about 20. Upon completion all the contents inside were dry with no traces of water seeping in. In a separate test borrowing another person's phone I had a chance to see how well the silicon cover integrates with touch-screen. It worked perfectly just as if there was no case at all so users will not have to sacrifice the ability to use the phone while in the case. Only potential flaw here would be waking up a phone if it goes to sleep. Smartphone's that need to be woken up by pressing a side button can run into issue here because it could be hard to get to. However, if the option of turning that mode off is available then the problem is easily averted. Also won't be an issue if your phone wakes up to alert you of incoming calls, texts and emails.
Though made for use with Smartphone's I see lots of other uses outside of that which would give it use year round in lots of various settings. Dimensions seem pretty spot on so should fit any phone provided its dimensions are compatible with those listed. For reference I have the Samsung Galaxy S II and it was just a little too big to fit in the TIDE case.
