Questions about the life proof case for iPhone five

I'm wondering if anyone has used the life proof case with their iPhone five. I have one, and have been reading reviews, but thus far haven't actually stuck my phone in there. So, because I'm lazy and because I can't possibly be the only one with these questions, I'm posting the following:
1. Have you noticed any difficulty performing touch screen gestures with the life proof case? Some reviewers have complained that the touch screen becomes difficult to interact with while in the case, and I'm wondering how this seems with VoiceOver gestures and with apps like Fleksy. What are your thoughts?
2. How is the speaker and call quality? Noticed any distortion with the microphones? How about with the speaker? Have you had any trouble with the proximity sensor not registering?
3. Anyone tested out the waterproof aspect of this case? I'm not planning to take mine swimming or anything like that, but it might be nice to be able to look at websites or listen to tv shows while in the shower. I also have a hot tub and, while I'm not planning on letting my phone be submerged, it would be nice to have peace of mind if it happens to get splashed or if I want to do something like take a call without having to climb out.
4. Does anyone have an additional screen protector and the life proof case on their phone? How does this affect the touch screen? Right now, I'm using your basic cheap purple case from Microcenter and of course have put on a screen protector, as I touch my screen with all manner of sticky hands and because I often toss my phone in my pocket with my keys and don't want the actual screen to be scratched. It would be nice not to have to peel off my existing screen protector and have wasted the money I spent on it.
Hopefully, someone on here will be able to answer these questions. I appreciate your taking the time to read and post.
