Having used the safe it pouch for my I phone for some years with a 100% track record I had no hesitation when I required a larger version for a small walky talky to use on the water, they allow full use of the controls with no loss of sound, the cords allow them to be fastened secure too your person or a fixed object on the boat. I have used the Ortlieb range of dry pouches for quite some time now, and with an up coming sailing trip I needed a reliable case for my I phone 5, one that could be secured to my person and still allow the phone to function, I can't recommend these pouches enough they are bombproof and most importantly waterproof.
I use it to keep my Samsung Galaxy Note dry when I'm on the trail. Instead of having a stand alone GPS device, I tend to use my smart phone. I have accidentally dropped it in a puddle before and had to have it replaced, hence why I bought one of these Ortliebs.
I've tried dunking the Ortlieb in the bath with some toilet roll inside, and it stayed dry throughout, so I have full confidence my phone will stay dry. Another bonus is that you can tie the case to your bag or something else and you won't have to worry about dropping your phone either. I don't find it annoying to get my phone in and out, but I've not had to do it often as it seems to work fine inside the bag anyway.
I bought this to keep my Android touch screen phone dry While I'm out on the bike and it certainly does that. Driving rain can't penetrate it and as there's excess material around the phone it also does fairly well at protecting it from small falls. I haven't full submerged it yet though, hopefully I won't. As the plastic sticks to the phone's screen it does make getting the phone in and out a tad fiddly but worth it!
The bag works perfectly - my smartphone is safe with me in the kayak at the Roskilde fjord.
I have (unintentionally) tested water-proofness in late summer when water is too cold for swimming and beach fun!
The item was 100% waterproof and my phone had no water damage whatsoever.
I can even use the phone's touch screen through the transparent front!
Should I complain a little then it would be to the bag interior - is a little sticky end and therefore it can be somewhat difficult to get the phone out again.
The only reason why I bought a new one is that my dog unfortunately chewed my first one to pieces.
I use an Ortlieb Safe It Bag to keep my mobile phone dry as I have ruined 2 phones through dampness in the past.
Pros: It works - keeps my phone bone dry. It's easy to see the screen and use the buttons through the transparent rubber. You can have a phone conversation with the phone sealed up inside it and the sound transmits through the rubber without any problem.
Cons: a bit bigger than it needs to be for phones these days. It's a bit fiddly to get the phone into, and out of, as the phone 'sticks' to the rubber. Don't know how it would work with a clam-shell type phone.
