    I am returning my new OtterBox Defender 4S case and 4s Commuter case because they are not worth what I paid directly from OtterBox. The built in screen protector on the new 4S Defender case is so loose its messes up your typing. I see OtterBox has the older iPhone 4 case on Amazon for dirt cheap along with the Speck CandyShell case. The only difference I see on the Otterbox is the front and the camera opening. The same goes for the Speck CandyShell case for the 4 with the camera. I don't want to get these off Amazon and then have problems with the camera or buttons not lining up or proximity sensor issues. So, is it best to just buy directly from Speck and say odiose to OtterBox? Will iPhone 4 cases fit the iPhone 4s? Thanks

    Candyshell with the big oval camera opening works great. Commuter for the 4 with the two small camera openings will cause issues with the 4S camera. I returned one for the 4 today, but I am not exactly happy with the 4S commuter either.

    Wife has the Candyshell.

    Do you know if CandyShell with the small camera opening will work on a 4s? None of the CandyShell cases with 4s compatibility are available YET on Amazon.

    It did not work on my 4S. I have a purple ATT one from my 4, and it didn't quite line up.

    My new candyshell that I got at the Apple Store lines up perfectly.

    Yes I just bought a Candyshell from the Apple store for my 4S. Works great.

    Does the rubber edge obstruct the front of the screen much? I'm so spoiled by the Barely There that anything else bugs me, but I love the look of the Candyshell.

    No, not at all. That small edge has a nice lay on the table design for the iPhone so you can lay it face down and not worry about the screen getting scratched.

    I've tried the new OtterBox Commuter case for the 4S and pretty much all of the newer Speck cases for the 4S and finally found the one that I like the best. That is the Pixel Skin HD case redesigned for the 4S. It has a larger opening for the Camera and flash, as well as a redesigned opening for the mute switch. This case is lighter than the original Pixel Skin case that I had for my iPhone 4 and all buttons are more responsive with a clicking sound that some prefer. I ordered the Black case although it does come in a variety of other colors. I had the case on my iPhone 4 for over a year and it survived 3 falls without so much as a scratch, so I have every reason to believe that the new Pixel Skin HD case will be equally as sturdy. Here's a link to the case if anyone is interested. https://www.speckproducts.com/iphone-case/iphone-4-case/pixelskin-hd-for-iphone-4.html

    I also ordered a Pixelskin HD in black last night.
    Got an email from Speck already that it shipped.
    I found an online coupon code for 20% off.
    Speck is great. My last order for a Candyshell shipped fast.
    They make great cases and great customer service.

    Thanks @Irish Rose! I ordered the Moonsuite for my white 4S with a coupon code I found online. "goodbetterspeck" knocked the price down to $27.95 for anyone who's interested.

    I have never owned anything other than Candyshells. I might order another speck to try them out. But I bought this teal at the Apple store and so far so good. Considering this one has come on and off like 12 times now for replacement phones..Im doing pretty good! No cracking yet.

    Really loving the Candyshell. Going to try the Candyshell Flip next which was just released for the 4S. The Flip allows you to use most docks and speakers without removing the case.

    Tried a lot of cases and after they've cracked and not held up I went to otterbox .. iSkin makes some nice cases as well but oddly enough there's not a lot of thickness difference between the defender and the commuter, and I've decided to defender my 4S and see how I like it .... BUT I am taking the screen protector out and invisishielding my 4S for complete protection

    THANKS!

    Used the code and bought two Candyshell Flip cases (can be used with docks) from the Speck site and saved almost $16. Free shipping to US addresses too.

    LOVE Speck!

    I have the Ion as well. It probably the best flexible case out there - it does not bulge out and its thick and sturdy; high quality.

    I also bought the Formula 4 from Elementcase and was disappointed. The 2 pieces do not fit together well and the bottom piece feels loose.

    Speck CandyShell cases are the best. They are definitely the best I've used so far. Hopefully the 4s cases hit Amazon soon and the price decreases. The $34 I paid for my two was worth every penny though.

    I am using the Speck case from my black iPhone 4 on my white 4s with no problems. All the buttons line up just fine and the camera works with no problems.

    You may want to specify the case. No all Speck cases are the same.

    Thanks I was just thinking that. It's the Pixel HD case for iPhone 4. I got it when Apple was doing the case promotion.

    I have just come over from BB and always had them wrapped in Otterboxes, both the Defender and the Commuter. I loved the protection they offered, but the defender was very chunky. Since making the switch, I went with the Defender on my i4s and it is positively svelte by comparison with the BB.

    The only gripe I have is that the holster is a little too tight, but it will break in over time.

    Got our Speck Candyshell Flip 4S cases in the mail today. They are every bit as awesome as the regular Candyshell cases and allow docking without removing the case!

    Used the coupon code "goodbetterspeck" for a discount, plus free shipping.
