    I've got a speck candyshell grip iphone 5, loving this thing. Has good protection and doesn't add much bulk. Also hav a iskin aura case which I'm returning. Made the phone feel like a 4 and didn't give to much protection but it was beautiful.

    This is probably my favorite case. I've had a few over the years, same issue with all of them. The part under the home button always breaks, speck is really good with replacements as long as you have the receipt.

    Well I got my white Candyshell today. Couldn't be happier with it! I was initially worried that it was going to be a bit bulky like it was on the 4/4S, but it's actually quite slim! Very impressed! The white on white with the black trim look is really nice, also

    How does the Speck handle drops?

    I swung my base ball bat and hit my iPhone 5 as hard as I could, and no scratches at all! I'd say it's pretty good.


    just kidding, I had a otterbox commuter, and I returned it and ordered a speck candyshell flip.

    Lol. I ask because my cimo tpu case from amazon was like $7 and I've from my phone from about 5 feet on tile and concrete with no problem to my phone. It would sometimes bounce and hit the ground again but is protected better than any silicone or hardshell case I've used.

    just wanna make sure my wife's 4S is good to go from drops and our kids lol

    How do you like the Flip? I'm thinking about getting the Flip (either in white and black if that's an option or the white/gray/black) when I finally scoop up the iPhone 5.

    It should be much better than your TPU case was, as it has some soft rubber on the inside protecting it from drops.

    Thoughts on the Flip? I'm torn between that and the Incipio Edge Pro (I don't even have the phone yet and I'm already planning on my case purchases).

    The Flip is just as good as the standard CS. Same fit and finish. I thought I'd hate the look of it but it's not bad. Got it for my docking boom box upstairs. Had to take my Defender off this morning to cut my hair and knew it was time to pull the trigger on the white Flip for my black 4S!

    Well, my candyshell has started peeling. Right now I am using a clear acrylic case until I make a decision.

    Do you have the glossy finish or the soft one?

    Ahhh thought you had the 5... I'm currently sporting the white/black CS on my 4S... I think I'm going to order the white/gray/black flip when I get the new iPhone... I need to be able to plug in the adapter on the bottom and have always liked the black phone, white case, look (as Pink would call, "The Stormtrooper")!

    I have the regular candyshell, it's the rubber that's messed up (not that in was expecting much else). Ironically it's the corner of the case NOT in my pocket that's messed up.

    Twice now (laptop and iPhone) I've tried to order from the Speck site and I have all of the info input but there's no place order button.

    Any help?

    It worked

    Make sure it is the real deal, since Speck has a great replacement policy. After less than 6 months, the rubber on my Candyshell Grip was starting to peel, so they sent me a postage paid return label, I sent them back my Grip, and they sent me out a brand new one. Love the case, love Speck.

    mistah m, i know what you mean. Sometimes the Speck site gets wonky, lol, for a better term of words. Glad you got it to go through
    (when that happens clear history and cache usually helps.)

    Not sure which is the regular. The shiny one or satin which is the non-shiny.

    I have the shiny one and it scratches. No rubber on it though that I can tell.

    The rubber is around the sides and covers the buttons and on the inside of the case. I guess mine is shiny (it has scratches). My last one did it too, though the one for my five is made better. When it gets worse I may look into it, but for now I will wait.

    Man, got the Flip YESTERDAY and I'm getting the eraser effect already. Got my PixelSkin HD back on. Sucks too because I ordered the non-flip version this morning from the site. I'll be returning the Flip to Verizon.

    Mistah, my regular white/black CS is completely fine and I've been using it for 6ish months. No eraser effect at all - I got it from the Apple store.
