    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.

    I hope that I have similar luck with the one that I ordered from the Speck site! *fingers crossed*

    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.
    Ok that's what I was wondering. The shiny one is what I have. I just bought the Incipio DualPro today. Nothing against the Candyshell but I was curious. I like it a lot too but really like the Candyshell though if it is going to peel maybe I'm saving myself frustration down the road

    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.
    Is it satin or shiny?

    It's the shiny one but the Satin one I had earlier in the year did it too.

    Taking the Dualpro back and going back to the Candyshell. It fits like a glove while the rubber on the dualpro is loose which will let in dirt. Feels better - really like this Speck!

    I bought a black Candyshell when I bought my iPhone 5 but haven't used it at all...been rolling naked. Maybe I'll give it a shot this week...it's funny how much bulkier it makes the 5 feel though after using it without a case for so long. (Although when I laid it next to my old 4, which is in an Incase snap case, they were the same height, so I should be used to it.)

    You returned because it was hard to take off?

    There's definitely a trick to getting it off easily that's for sure.

    I can understand why. I've returned cases as well in the past simply because they were a tight fit and hard to take off. I didn't want to take a chance on damaging my iPhone trying to pry it off.... Just my 2

    I guess it seems bulky if you compare the case to a naked iPhone 5. To me the new Speck CandyShell case is much thinner than those of the past and I'm not seeing that it adds a great amount of bulk to my iPhone 5 at all. It still looks slim and has a light feel to it with my candyshell case on it.

    I took the Candyshell and Fabshell off my phone and wife's phone several times without issue. Used the DualPro for 2 days and the loose bottom material trapped something under it and created a blemish. Candyshell is back on and the DualPro returned.

    Agreed, and my iP4 didn't have a case on it but I really like the Candyshell.

    Mine still feels very thin with Candyshell on it. I agree with your statement.

    Yes I did! IMO, if a case is that tricky to get off its not worth the trouble...obviously I don't want a case slipping off, but compared to OtterBox and BodyGlove which also fit nice and snug, Speck one just didn't cut it!

    i agree with you seashell. I avoided purchasing this wallet type case from Speck, & just to add that particular case is twice the thickness of a regular candyshell because of needing the additional space to have a slot for the cards. Just even looking at the pics of the case on the Speck site, if you look at the back where the camera hole is, you can clearly see the thickness of it, which wouldnt give enough flex to be removed easier than a candyshell.

    You do know there is an easy trick to taking the candy shell off? Thumb on the star in back, pry off the top where the power control is, off on the right and left corners. The bottom then comes off easy. It comes off really easy. I have taken it off multiple times with no problems. Search YouTube for speck case removal.

    Yes, the speck cs is pretty easy to take off, but seashell was talking about the speck cs CARD case, which is thicker than an average cs.

    If you look at the pics, you'll see the difference in the thickness compared to a regular cs.

    I do mine from the side vs the top. Put both thumbs in the center at the top on the back along the long edge with my fingers along the front lip by the screen. Using your thumbs just push. Once the phone starts coming out flip it and do the same to the other side.

    Well, after giving it another shot, I think I've decided to just roll naked for now. First time for everything!
