    Best case I've had!

    • Written by from Montreal

    I have had this case for a little over 7 months and I can easily say that it is THE BEST one I've had. Ever. The first week I got my iPhone 5s I accidentally dropped it in water - and I mean completely submerged. The speck case was so tightly fitted around all the important edges and corners of my phone that no water ever reached it. I have checked the phone for liquid damage and it had no trace. Besides the water exposure, the phone has been dropped many times, on different surfaces and from different heights - all resulting in the same outcome - not even a single sign of damage. I love this case and I am buying another one for later on and a third one for my friend. It is extremely robust and the protection it provides is superior to any other case I have had before. Amazing!

    Great case!

    Snug fit. Great protection from most incidents. Maintains sleek design of the phone. Slips well into and out of pockets. Provides a light, appropriate grip weather in hand or pocket. Expected Speck quality. I highly recommend it. I carry 2 5s' at all times as a paramedic in a very busy, very dangerous city. Great stuff!

    The only cover we use

    • Written by from sparks

    I / We have had the speck covers for all 3 generations of iPhone. Trust me you will drop your phone sometime and this cover WILL protect your phone. My husband likes that it easily goes into his pocket. the rubber front protects the iPhone screen. We have never had a phone crack or scratch with this cover. You can easily get a year or two use out of one (depending on how often you drop it)

    Note: The case does NOT scratch the iPhone!

    • Written by from Glen Ellyn

    There are some negative reviews of the CandyShell case - a common complaint seems to be "scratches".

    I was worried about my phone and took it out of the case this morning - not a scratch on it! So I went back and re-read these reviews... people are upset that the case itself has scratches on the back.

    Well... isn't that the point? This case will keep your phone in like-new condition. In doing so, it will absorb the damage that would have been received by your iPhone.

    Once you go Speck, you don't go back

    • Written by from Shawnee

    I used to buy a lot of cases for iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, to try, test, and advise friends. Then I discovered Speck cases and I quit buying cases because they became the only ones I needed.

    The CandyShell for iPhone 5 does not disappoint. The CandyShell cases are a little bulkier than some cases, but nothing compared to something like an Otterbox. Speck cases always have the fit and finish of something Apple would design for their own products. The CandyShell 5 feels great in your hand, and offers a lot more protection then other brands.

    Great case

    • Written by from Fremont

    I bought this the day after the iPhone 5 came out. It is perfect. I agree that it seems bulky but it fits the phone well. I like the rubberized perimeter so if you happen to drop your phone face down, it my cushion it well. Worth the price!

    A high-quality and protective case.

    • Written by from HARTFORD

    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

    • Written by from Valley Center

    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.
