The flip speck is the easiest one to remove. I can't comment on the honeycomb pattern because I have a spigen leather skin on the back

What's so amazing about how this case looks? I don't get it. I don't know why anyone would think that this case is appealing. It looks horrid and ugly. Makes an iPhone look like a damn toy phone but worse. Lmao SMH. Why make an iPhone look like crap?!?....just my .2......

I like this case, because it looks good, and it is not making phone to big!

. It as bad as I thought. I just worked it out from the right side( without buttons). Just popped each corner out and it was fine. I had a speck fabshell which was a pain to remove. I returned it because the buttons are very hard to press on the fabshell.

Actually its the easiest hardshell case to remove. As to the honey-comb effect it easily cleans with screen cleaner sprayed onto a micro cloth.

Had a Speck Candyshell for my 4S, without anything done to it the case destroyed itself.

Hi, sorry for the huge post here. I was just wondering how all of your cases are treating your chamfered edges, are particles getting in and scratching it, or does it look like the day you put it in the case. I have OCD about scratches, so if you could please remove your case and tell me if your phone has developed any scratches from the case, thanks so much!

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

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

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!

Fed ex priority I was charged $18.16 (roughly 11.25 according to XE) and didn't appear to get charged for anything other than delivery & cases.

And I ordered Friday afternoon arrived Tuesday morning.

Hope that's helpful :P

Edit: Just tried it on the phone doesn't feel too bulky, there is a bit of bulk but only from what expect from candyshells feels quite smooth with a little grippy-ness but not that slight slipery feel like the glossy candyshell feels quite nice.

Photo's taken with iPad so they aren't the best quality but you get a good idea :

Doesn't appear to be any scuffing/scratching (not that I expected any) to the black iPhone so thats a good plus

For those who are wondering, the headphone jack is decent size, and it it should most headphone jacks. I couldn't fit my Shure headphones jack before with the Apple bumper, but now I can. Thanks guys for suggesting this case.

Sorry I don't know how to embed images to this post but here's the link in case you want to see how the red case looks.

Pros:

1. Great protection from drops. The rubber inside seems like it will absorb impact shock, and the lip will help for face drops.

2. Attractive imo. Really clean design and good construction. Fits well with the iphone design.

Cons:

1. Will scratch your phone over time. It's either the rubber or particles getting in between the rubber and the phone. The edges of my 3GS ended up scratched all over with the shell on. While the new case for the 5 seems to have a new rubber, I wouldn't trust this case for the following reason:

2. The fit for getting your phone in and out is TOO TIGHT. While this provides a great fit if you just leave the phone in there forever, I am sure that ingress and egress is damaging the buttons (power, volume, rocker). While it can take so much damage, one time is all it takes to ruin one. The tight fit also makes for scratches. I have put my 5 in twice, and removed it twice so far without problems. But I am not confident about the long run.

3. The speck case itself is highly prone to scratches. It's only been 2 days and the back as hairline scratches all over. If anything like my 3GS case, it will also scuff and dull over time. The bottom lip on my 3GS ripped down the middle as well.

overall I don't recommend the speck case. It's designed to protect your phone, but seems to introduce more damage. If you don't mind scratches, then go for it. I think it provides great drop protection. I dropped it once getting out of my car, and it slid on a gravel road. No damage whatsoever from the road.

The iPhone 5 cases have a much shorter bridge now between the two sides and it is not as thin so I don't think this will be an issue with the new ones.

I don't really care if it get scratched up eventually. I don't buy a case under the assumption that it will last the life of the phone. I buy a case that takes a beating and gets scratched up so my phone doesn't bare the abuse.

Funny thing is that both of the iP5 cases I got from Speck, (ordered them the day they became available on their website), are now on backorder.

Anyway... I still have 2 weeks to take it back to AT&T and I have a SwitchEasy NUDE (clear) on the way. We'll see which one gets the job of covering my iPhone!

The shiny black is a fingerprint magnet, but I didn't like the other color combos that were in stock on Amazon when I ordered. I'll wait a few months and the prices will plummet, and I'll get the color I want. I waited too long to get a case as it is -- got a nick right on the front edge of the phone . Hopefully, the Flip will save it further abuse.

But I agree, if you just leave it on for the life of the phone, then it's a great case if you don't mind the hairline scratches on the back. There is also the issue with the lip getting in the way of your thumb swipes, but that is minor.

Overall a good case with a few nuances. One of the better looking ones imo.

Sorry about the awful quality. I used the iPad 2's camera.

I saw a comment that the case is so tight that it could damage the buttons etc. Do you really think so? Or was the comment more about taking it in and out...not sure why you'd do that but...

I tried to take the case off starting from the left top corner, and the area right above the sound/vibrate rocker switch cracked.
Had to return it.

As someone else mentioned earlier, mine also shows a sliver of silver on the top left corner. Going to contact speck to see if they will send me a replacement.

HOWEVER, overall, I LOVE this case! Love how it looks and button and cutouts are perfect!

I also have a White/Peacock/Pebble Speck Candyshell Flip and a Purple/Green Speck Candyshell and I found that putting a back protector (I'm using SGP Ultra Clear) makes it so you don't get any honeycomb effect on the back.

I figured I'd go with the Belkin since it seems to get rid of both those issues. I noticed their website has a smolder/gravel sheer so I ordered that. I hope it's as see through as it looks on the site, should look great on my phone.

I get paranoid of people talking about the phone bending in cases that aren't quite as stiff. Such a silly thing to have to worry about with a cell phone.

I want to get a CandyShell Satin for iPhone 4/4S.
After reading some reviews, a few people said the rubber was peeling off...
Any experience with the Satin case?

I think I will also go with the normal one, because a lot of people aren't happy with the satin for the 4/4S...
Is the flaking still issue on the normal CandyShell for the 4/4S?
If so, what (other) Speck case would you guys recommend for the iPhone 4/4S?

Anyone experience with a FabShell for iPhone 4/4S?
If so, how does the fabric hold up?

All the CandyShells for the 4/4S in general wasn't that great. The part that goes above the 30-pin connector cracks VERY easily.

I really like the look of all Speck cases, but some are pretty poor quality if I hear this...
CandyShell, FabShell and Fitted have there problems.
So I will go for the Pixelskin HD or GeoSkin.
The reviews I saw about them were very positive!
Heard from a few people here that they are good too.

Unless the FabShell and Fitted are plastic, I don't think they will crack at that part. The CandyShell only cracks at that area because the plastic is so thin and brittle there.

But for the iPhone 5, the part in question is shorter, because of the lightning cable being smaller, so neither my nor I have experienced cracking in that area.

There's reports of bad flaking from the Satin case on the official Speck review site!:

I'll tell you that Speck is really good about sending you a new case under warranty for free.

Great company, but the iPhone 5 case is a compromise.

In order to clean the normal dust & debris that builds up between any case & the phone, I remove mine weekly. By week 4, the phone was scratched, the rubber worn, none of which was noticeable till then.

Oh well, I didn't plan on keeping this phone anyway.

I want to get the CandyShell Satin (black) for my iPhone 5.
Reviews of the 4/4S version say the satin layer peels off...
Is this fixed with the iPhone 5 version?

No. This happens with all similar satin cases. The satin coating wears off over time.
