    Audio port is too small

    • Written by from San Jose

    I bought this case at the local Apple store. It was easy to install and seems to protect fairly well, though I haven't really put that to the test. The main issue with this case is the size of the access holes. The mute switch is difficult (though not impossible) to operate for medium to large fingers. The headphone jack is useless for most standard stereo cables. Apple headphones work fine as the jacket around the plug is very narrow. However, I have yet to find a standard audio cable (for plugging into car, stereo, etc) that will push in far enough to work at all.

    Protects your phone, but at the cost of the case.

    I was thrilled to have gotten a speck case for my iPhone 5, since I am the type of person who has nightmares about my phone breaking. It looks fantastic and does the job... For maybe a few months.
    A lot of the rubber begins to fray and peel off from being handled, pieces of the plastic snap, leaving things exposed and it doesn't look oh so pretty anymore. I was very disappointed because I really did love this case but in the end, I had to get rid of it.
    As far as the cost, it's pretty high for a case that can't even survive a year, not to mention Speck's "warranty" that doesn't cover wear and tear. Of course it doesn't. Everyone would be wanting a replacement.
    In the end, I bought a case off Amazon for $2 TOTAL. This one has lasted much longer, has a lot more protection to it, and looks like it did the day it came in the mail.
