iPhone 4 Waterproof Case Test (Video)

Aquapac vs Overboard
Truth be told these two cases are very similar. Both are clear plastic that retains the capacitive touch so you can keep using your iPhones while they’re inside. (At least when you’re out of the water — no capacitive touch can work when you’re under water). This means you can still make calls, record video, check the web, etc. with ease.
The Overboard has a black outer lining that does conceal part of the iPhone which I found kind of annoying. The Aquapac is clear all the way around allowing you to be able to see the whole screen of the iPhone and use the camera without having to worry about the view being obstructed.
Both the Overboard and the Aquapac have hard plastic seals that close tightly and securely. They do allow a small amount of water to get caught in the closure though, so you need to open the cases with caution or you risk dripping water on your iPhones. And yes, both cases are equally hard to get iPhones into and out of.
Lanyards are included with both the Overboard and the Aquapac so you can hold onto them or tie them to something to make sure you don’t lose them in the water.
