- Reasons not to buy the Survivor Extreme

- Although the screen protector is easy to install as it just slides on, some users find that the gap between the protector and the iPhone screen decreases touchscreen sensitivity. They can feel and hear the screen protector when they use the touchscreen. The slight gap between the protector and screen makes it difficult to keep debris and dust out.

- Some users would prefer that the camera was more protected than just being raised off the surface. There is no material to shield the camera from any outside interference.

- A few users find the rear of the case to be a bit slippery. They also question the durability of the lighting port cover. Third party cables may not fit.

- A few users complain that the case muffles their voice when they speak on the iPhone.
