Ratings & Reviews
A high-quality and protective case.
I went into a brick-and-mortar Apple store and it was incredibly busy there. Frustrated with all the commotion I bought 5 differe I went into a brick-and-mortar Apple store and it was incredibly busy there. Frustrated with all the commotion I bought 5 different cases to bring home, analyze, and return the undesired. After eliminating a few other cases this case is one of the final two.
*The case seems to be of VERY good quality.
*Its most notable feature is that is seems to be considerably more protective of the phone than any other case.
*It snaps on very well. More tightly than any I've ever seen.
*It does provide clearance between the face of the phone and a flat surface it the phone were set face down. This helps to ensure the face of the phone doesn't get scratched when set down, face side down.
*The very feature that makes the case so incredible has an inherent downside -- bulk. It is a bid larger than the other cases. To those as particular as myself, this case is 0.05" (~1/32") thicker than the other cases (I measured it myself).
*This case does hide the backside of the iPhone 5
If you don't like broken cases and a couple extra hundredths-of-an-inch doesn't bother you, I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND this case. …

Great Case, With Reservation
This is a great case, very solid and protective. Allows for great sound through the iPhone speakers if you use those, and the butt This is a great case, very solid and protective. Allows for great sound through the iPhone speakers if you use those, and the buttons are easy to push with the rubber casings.
The case does show fingerprints on the black and scratches easily, but better the case than the phone. Also, the case won't let the 30-pin to Lightning adapter to connect, so be prepared to go Lightning all the way.
Suggestion: Get the case for excellent protection, get it in white, and go Lightning. …

2010 version lasted 2.5 years, 2013 version lasted 1 month
I recently bought what I though was the same exact case as I did in 2010. And I did (same company, same model), except the qualit I recently bought what I though was the same exact case as I did in 2010. And I did (same company, same model), except the quality has gone WAY down. My first version did a good job keeping my phone protected and slowly over time the plastic broke near the charger plug, but that was really it. I decided to get a new one this past summer, just to make sure my phone was protected as it could be and this new case is TOTAL GARBAGE. I bought it at Apple thinking that they continue to review the products that they sell in their store. The speck case I have is very poor quality. The plastic broke near the charger plug within the first two months, the rubber around the edges has completely deteriorated and constantly is crumbling off (now missing in several places around the case). I have not handled the phone or case any differently. Went back to Apple recently and they said there is nothing they can do. Last time I buy any accessory from Apple. …

The rubber on every corner is frayed and seems its coming apart. The face to rough on the face when talking on the phone. There is also no hole for the background mic on the side of the phone. When I emailed Speck they said it didn't affect the function of the phone. But when I use the phone without the case whomever I am talking to can always hear me perfectly. Planning on returning it ASAP! …
