Only saw candyshell in white/grey and no satin versions available.

If any of you are interested I have video reviews and up close looks of both the CandyShell and CandyShell Grip cases for the new iPhone 5 on my channel. Just look at my sig below.

Hope this helps

Scratches on the case

Case fits great, a little bulky in my opinion for the phone, but my chief complaint is that it scratches way to easy. Had it for about 2 hours, had it in the car and in my pocked for a bit and realize that there are clearly visible scratches.

Got mine at Target and then the CandyShell Grip at AT&T store for the overpriced markup of $38!

These cases will show scratches if you get darker colors, the lighter colors hide fingerprints and scratches pretty well.

Yes, these cases do scratch but are otherwise awesome.

How do you guys like the Candyshells compared to the Otterbox Commuter?

Best Buy has lots of Speck candyshell cases. Bought a black one and liking it alot. I'm thinking of ordering the satin version and if I like it, I'll return the regular candyshell.

Picked up the Blue/Orange model at Best Buy last night. They had a pretty good inventory.

They had the red and black one at the AT&T store. I grabbed it while I was doing my SIM swap. They were also giving 25% of accessories including JamBox speakers if you are into those.

I tried one of these but I didn't like how difficult it was to take the phone out. Just me I guess...

I bought an Incase Slider (which I have used for 2 years on my iPhone 4, and for 2 years before that on my iPod Touch) and decided to return it. The "slider" part left scratches on my 4 and I was worried that would happen and look worse on the black 5. Also I found it didn't fit as well as the one for my 4 did. It slid off today twice when pulling the headphone cable out and it kept creaking like it was not fitting properly.

Anyway, I started looking at Speck Candyshell. Very limited selection in stores around here so far but I found the white/blue candyshell grip. Fits SO much better. Very tight fit and it feels much more sturdy. Not worried about my phone at all with this thing on.

I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the grip though. It looks nice and it seems like it would help prevent dropping it, but I don't know if I like the rubber feel. I might switch it for the white/charcoal one once they are in stock here.

Speck Candyshell does not appear to scuff the black iPhone 5. I took mine off and put it back on a few times to test this. I would recommend this case to anyone looking to keep their antenna free of scuffs.

This case is incredible. Blew me away when I took one out of the package at Best Buy. The build quality and precision here is the best I've ever seen Speck do.

Here's my "nekkid" iPhone 4S next to my CandyShell'd iPhone 5. My ruler shows the case at 11mm thin. Happy customer here!

I got the white/grey one and I like it. It's still pretty light and I didn't find any scuffing when I took it out and put it back in 3 times.

The fit is very tight. Also, there are no scuffs so far when removing the case, the rubber interior seems to prevent this problem altogether. I think it will be a very good case, much better than the CaseCrown one I had originally.
Since the fit is tight, do you think it would scratch or nick the polished bevel edges when installing or uninstalling?

Since it's a tight fit will installing and uninstalling scratch or nick the sides and/or polished bezel?

I saw the Speck Candy Shell at the Best Buy near me, but they didn't have any that I really liked, but I did end up with the Speck FabShell. I got the one with the black and cream plaid design.

Are people concerned with these kind of cases that dirt is going to build up inside the plastic and scratch the bezeled edge and the sides/back of the device?

on my 4s the case fit so tight there was never any build up of lint, dust etc in the case when I removed it. For maximum protection I did use it with a back cover protector on my phone along with a screen protector. Same will be used for the iP5.
