Yes. The Outex covers maintain your ability to control key phone features and apps. The cover reduces the sensitivity to touch and may limit some functions. It is intended to be used when needed in adverse conditions for image capture - not 24-7. The Outex underwater phone housing system maintains access to your phone's controls and screen navigation thru the cover so you can control your app functions even when the housing is on. While less sensitive, the cover enables you to operate core functionality so you don't lose control and can even answer telephone calls during use.
