Can't Wait to Head to the Beach!
When I opened the package, instructions stated to test the bags before using. The instructions recommended submerging in 6 inches of water for 15 minutes (might have said 10, but I did it for 15). At first I was stumped with what to test it on, but then it occurred to me to use a packet of paper towels. What better way to test leakage? So i took my stock pot and filled it with water. Folded some paper towels into a neat packet that would fit the case and put it inside. I weighted the case down in the water with a vase and full bottle of water, then I set the timer. Fifteen minutes later, I removed the packet. I unlocked it, removing the packet of paper towels. Dry as a bone! See the pics I provided! There was actually one drop of water that got on the towels as I removed it from the case. The drop came from residual water droplets that were on the case, which I think was to be expected and certainly would have done no damage to my phone. I am extremely pleased with this case and it will come in very handy when I go on vacation.

Sturdy, Simple, and Waterproof!
I'm not a huge fan of the clunky waterproof pouches for devices but sometimes you want a little more reassurance that your phone is protected than your standard weatherproof case. If tried out other pouches like this, they are just barely big enough for my iPhone 7plus, and that's with the slim line case removed. THIS pouch however accommodated my phone perfectly. I did have to remove the case, but I think if I took my time it would fit with it on as well. The fold over flap and locking mechanism at the top is sturdy and tested perfectly waterproof. The BIG plus for me was that with other cases it was difficult to use the phone, touch screen was yonky at best and all sounds were muffled. This one worked great! touch worked, all sounds and phone calls were fine. Of course the thumb reader won't work through the case but none of them do. All in all this is a fine case. It's sturdy simple and waterproof

Testing out case
it's summer, and I don't think my phone 6s is the best phone to take to a water park for pictures or a pool. So I bought this case, so far I'm too scared to actually put my phone to the test eventually I will, so I put a piece of paper instead. I had it soak in the water for a good minute and 30 seconds, got ever piece of the case wet flipped it, etc. right after I took it out of the sink I already saw a part of the paper wet, I dried the case and made sure no extra water got on the paper. It's not a lot of water. It's ok for the price I paid for. I wanna try the other case taht came with it but one of the locks feel a little lose so I might not use it at all.

Simple and easy. It works.
I've seen these waterproof iPhone bags at water parks and the beach before, and wondered if they really work well or how the quality of the pictures or video come out. These are basically a thick zip top bag with a plastic top that clamps together to seal out the water. The touch screen is responsive through the bag. Pictures come out pretty clear, except for the occasional glare if the bag is at the wrong angle to the camera lens. Try to make the bag flush to the screen.
I tried the dry tissue test, where you insert a tissue in the bag, zip it up and submerge it. The bag does keep everything inside dry as it is suppose to. But when you take your iPhone out, be sure to completely dry the bag outside and in the crevices around the clamp. 1 drop of water on your iPhone in the right spot can destroy it. I personally would not use it to go swimming with my iPhone in it. That is why I already have a waterproof camera that works wonderfully. I would use it sandproof my iphone at the beach or on a boat for that just in case moment.
I received this item in exchange for my fair, honest, and unbiased opinion.

The opening in the case at the top is easy to seal
The Maxboost Waterproof case does exactly what it is advertised to do. I came in a pack of two, and was large enough to hold my I phone 6 plus. You cannot put your phone intros bag without removing another case you have on the phone. Even a iPhone 6 with thin case did not fit in this case.
I tested the case before I put my phone in it and it was under water for a week in a tub of water and no leakage at all. It is constructed well and has a visible double seam around the body of the bag for extra protection. The opening in the case at the top is easy to seal, and all functions on my phone worked while in the case. It came with lanyard but was not well made. One tug on the lanyard and it came apart where it was clapped together. Would not recommend using the lanyard that comes with these cases.
Overall this was a sleek, Crystal clear, protection bag that I will carry with me to the beach or on a boat or fishing trip. I can real easily carry and store this case anywhere I go, and within seconds have my phone protected against sand, water or any environment that is not ideal for the devise.

No chance of wetness!
I have to start off by saying I love Maxboost and they come out with some really great products. That being said I was happy to see that Maxboost had come out with a waterproof case. I am not a fan of the large and bulky cases that claim to be waterproof. I would rather not sacrifice having a small slim case for my phone just to keep my phone dry. So, I happily tried out the Maxboost Waterproof Case. The quality is exactly what I expected from Maxboost. It is made of a sturdy waterproof plastic with a hard, sturdy plastic closure with 2 locks to secure the phone and prevent water from getting inside, and you also get one lanyard. I wish it came with two lanyards as I gave one to a friend when she kayaks. My son took this one on his adventure in learning how to paddle-board and I am so glad he did. He has an iPhone 7 plus with a slim case on it and it fit perfectly into the waterproof case. He told me he feel off the paddle-board into the water at least 5 times and the case help up perfectly with no leakage at all. I am very impressed with another quality made Maxboost product. Thank you!!

Sealed with a kiss!
I love that the two come sealed individually and again in a bigger package to insure that they don't get damaged during shipping.
The lanyard was easy to put on and the lock was simple yet secure. The instructions to prep the product by submerging it in water as a test was easy and the waterproof case worked great with my iPhone 6! I can't wait to use this in the bay, pool and amusement parks this summer!
The only negative thing that I found was a lack of information for registering for the warranty. It said to e-mail an address but didn't say what to include to identify your purchase.

I got these just in time for aquatopia..indoor water park. These bags are great. Secured my phone,id and cash in a nice dry place. For the price i cant go wrong, because i get 2 for the price of 1. The bag comes with a clasp system that tigtens the bag more than your typical ziplock style bag/clasp also locks into place preventing accidentally opening. Also a nifty lanyard neck string thing. Id def reccomend for beaches, water parks etc.. great for those that dont have a water resistant phone.
Phone in picture is a samsung galaxy s6.

This case is not something you would want to carry your phone around in all the time but if you are planning a trip to the beach or hanging out by the pool it is perfect case to have
I bought this for me and bought a waterproof case for my wife. We both ended up using this. Worked perfectly for our first waterpark adventure in the kids summer break. The case comes with a long lanyard so you can put it around your neck, at least that’s how my wife likes to carry it. This case is not something you would want to carry your phone around in all the time but if you are planning a trip to the beach or hanging out by the pool it is perfect case to have. Actually I would say and recommend to include this as a necessary item in your must have list. I give it five stars because I had no issues at all, it worked as expected.
It is a great product especially for the price. I used it during the waterpark trip where I used it in the sand, water, diving, swimming, etc. It worked really well and was definitely waterproof. Love them! They work great - I used it while resting on the water chair in the pool and the phone fell in pool multiple times... my phone was perfect. And I took a ton of pictures while in it and they came out great.
Finally I can say goodbye to my home remedy to carry the phone in the zipper sandwich bag I used to protect a cell phone while in a pool or near water. Unlike the zipper sandwich bag, this case is really sturdy enough to hold my phone and actually I had put a credit card with it which turned out to be dry as well. The case did not puncture, at least not this time ;).The closure snaps shut in a definite way, leaving no doubt that the bag is tightly sealed. I have yet to put this case to a vigorous test of having it under several feet of water and for extended duration but for now it is more than adequate to protect its precious contents “The Phone” especially when buying a phone is becoming costlier day by day thanks to our wireless service providers for no longer providing phones at discounted rates with plan renewals.
A suggestion would be to try and make the string of better material so that it does not soaks water, then it would be almost perfect . Finally Big fan so far! Great price/value for what I paid for can’t be happier more.

works well, can hold a 7 plus
I haven't taken this underwater yet, but hope to soon. All my tests with paper towels come up dry, so at some point, I'll give it a shallow water photo test. Mostly, I'm using as a waterproof case when we go out in my father's boat or when I take my kayak out--the fact that you can take photos without taking it out of the case is a big plus. I also like the lanyard with the detachable clip. I have an iPhone 7 plus with a "Loopy" case and all of it fits in the case. Like any dry bag, you need to be careful closing and securing the bag. I can see where if you are not careful, or in a rush, the seal might not be 100%. I can also see where the film is attached to the plastic casing it could possibly rip. Yes, the plastic film is thin, but it seems to be holding up. I guess keeping an eye on it is key. Also, there is water that will cling to the plastic casing after being immersed, so be careful opening it up (I like to swipe the casing with a towel just to catch any drops of water that might travel inside once the seal is unlocked.) The photos you take through it are fine.
