What about the beveled edges on the 5 installing and uninstalling?

Thanks my white iPhone came flawless but it looks like the sides and polished bezel can get easily scratched/nicked.

I have two of these cases for the 4 and 4S. I LOVE the cases other than that they scratch like hell on the back within hours of use.
Speck actually refunded me and let me keep the cases and said they will someday make the Candyshell in a matte finish to help this.

Agreed about the scratching, though I hardly notice it on my white Candyshell. On my red one, yeah it's a little beat up.

They've already come out with a matte version. It's called the Candyshell Satin.

I'm also intrigued by the "Satin" version of the Candyshell which has a soft touch back which is supposed to be far more grippy and resistant to scratching. Anyone give this one a go?

I saw a few of the white and grey cases at Target this morning. Try there.

My main one was black. It looked horrid pretty quick.
That matte looks awesome. In the 4S I need the flip though because of my Pioneer adapter in my car. The 5 this likely wont be a problem though so this is very enticing to me.
Thanks for the link!

Is there an easy way to remove the phone from the CandyShell case? I tried one of these at Best Buy and it took me about 10 minutes to get case off. If it weren't for the ridiculously tight fit, I would have bought it.

Just bought the Candy Shell Satin on Speck's website and it should arrive by the end of the week. I own the SATIN shell for my MBA. I love it. Will post pictures of the Satin when I get it.

Its not easy but it does get easier. IMO you want it to fit tight. Better hold on the phone and less **** gets behind or around the phone.

Is anyone using the Candyshell in conjunction with an SGP / Spigen screen protector? Just would like to know if any bubbling occurs.

Also, how are the sides holding up on the Candyshell? I'm fearing the dreaded peeling effect :\.

Thanks in Advance

No bubbling with Ultra Crystal and candyshell. Can't answer about the peeling since it's only been a few days.

Excellent, thank you so much

Guess I'll wing it and hope Speck got that peeling finally fixed. Freedom from the Otterbox! :P

I've posted how I have the black one and LOVE the fit and protection it adds, but also am considering returning it to best buy and trying out the satin one. Is there ANY disadvantages of the satin one? I don't get why everybody only stocks the shiny version? The fit and build is just so good on the one I have that I don't know if it's worth risking a switch?

Should be practically no traces of fingerprints or scratches with the satin. I'm going to return it once the satin version shows up from Speck.

I was able to find a white/grey one at my local corporate AT&T store. Might want to try there.

Anyone noticing slightly lower volume with the candyshell on versus off? I've noticed that I have to turn my volume down to 50% where I normally would turn it down to 10-20% since with the iPhone 4S it was so much louder.

Been wondering that myself. I still haven't got the ip5 but looking at the speaker holes it might be a problem. Does anyone know?

BTW I bought a white/black candyshell grip. And it has the same openings.

you really shouldn't hear a difference because of how it is molded. there is a giant hole inside the rubber lining for mic and speaker instead of them trying to line up the holes individually. my phone pretty much sound the same with and without the case (i don't have a decibel meter tho LOL) so maybe some holes in your case are plugged up?

i got the cobalt/butternut squash color and seriously... it is awesome! i might do a review on it. if i do tho, it's gonna be pretty intensive with lots of pics and stuff.

I love my white/grey Candy combo for my white iPhone 5. I had to take off the side protection so it would fit. Fits well with front and back shields though.
