While not offering near the features of the TS5, the T25 holds its own with rugged features many are sure to love; along with a price tag that is likely to be a lot more friendly on the wallet.

Its lifeproof specs include being Waterproof down to 23 feet, Shockproof from a 5 foot drop, Freezeproof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, and Dustproof. It also offers 16-megapixels of resolution, a 4x optical zoom lens with MEGA O.I.S. stabilization, 720p HD video capture, and a 2.7-inch LCD.
