Catalyst Waterproof Phone Case {Sponsored Review}

I’ve known for a long time that I needed a better case for my phone.  When Catalyst contacted me about reviewing their waterproof phone case, I couldn’t say no.  With summer in full effect and a beach trip on the horizon, I was ready to put the Catalyst waterproof phone case to the test.

Catalyst Waterproof Phone Case {Review} - MamaMommyMomLet me start by saying… I am cheap.  I don’t buy a lot of expensive things, but when I do, I try really hard to take care of them.  My iPhone has always, always been in a case.  If I’m doing something where my phone might get wet, I toss it in a Ziploc bag.  My life is in that phone and I have to keep it safe.  Enter the Catalyst waterproof phone case.

Catalyst Waterproof Phone Case Review - MamaMommyMomWhen I removed the case from its packaging, I was really surprised at how light it was.  Considering it is waterproof up to 16 feet and meets military specifications for drops up to 6 feet, I was expecting something much heavier.  The slim profile and light weight were a huge bonus.  My biggest complaint about most good cases is that they are so bulky, but the Catalyst waterproof phone case is not.  The 2-peice design has a very secure fit and was easy to put on without being difficult.

As far as function goes, I’ve have only one complaint about the case, but we’ll get to that in a minute.  I can tell no difference in sound quality from my speakers or ear piece and I have had no complaints about the quality of sound from the microphone either.  All of the buttons work great, as does the toggle switch for the “mute” functionality.  The added layer of the screen took a few days to get used to, though you just have to be a little firmer in your touch than you do with the naked screen.

Catalyst Waterproof Phone Case Takes Great Pictures - MamaMommyMomIf you’ve been around MamaMommyMom for very long, you probably know I am a huge fan of photography.  Being able to take great photos with my phone is a must for me.  While I have a DSLR, I don’t always want to lug it around and sometimes I just don’t have it handy.  Some cases impair the cameras ability to do it’s job as well as it can.  The Catalyst waterproof phone case does not.

Catalyst Waterproof Phone Case Pelican Picture - MamaMommyMomMy one and only complaint about the Catalyst waterproof phone case is that some headphone jacks do not fit well through the port in the case.  I did however just find out that Catalyst sells an adapter to remedy that problem.

All in all, I am super impressed with the Catalyst waterproof phone case and would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a truly waterproof case that you can rely on.

If you had a case like this and could take your phone anywhere without worrying about water damage, where would you take it and what would you take pictures of?

    Okay that first water wave picture is beyond amazing! Seriously the waves, the capture, her joy, it is perfect!! You need to print that big to hang somewhere in your house! This case sounds awesome. I do bring my phone to the beach but definitely have always worried about it, wouldn’t have to with this! Adding this to my wish list!

  6. Wow!! I have an otterbox but of course those aren’t waterproof. I’ve been hoping to hear more about products like these! Will have to check it out for my phone, thanks for the candid review.

    Oh my gosh! If only we would have known about this back in May! We went to the beach and on the last day my husband finally decided to get in the water – with his phone in his pocket. Of course his sturdy Otterbox didn’t protect his phone from the salt water :( And then we got ripped off buying a new one on Craigslist!

    I’ll definitely be telling him about this one when he gets his new phone!!

    This is so cool. I love my Otterbox, but it’s not waterproof and I’m always afraid something is going to happen to my iPhone… (my whole life is in there, backed up of course, but still!) It’s worth the price for that kind of protection.

  9. Carissa says:
