    Based on reviews here, I picked up a Candyshell last week. Now that I see that vid I'm especially happy I got one!

    i just got mine in the mail today. i am pretty disappointed. maybe i got a dud, but the build quality is pretty poor. i bought mine from mygearstore's ebay store. i'm guessing the dual layer design makes it difficult to mold, but there was a "drip" of hard gray plastic on the softer green silicon on the part that frames the screen. (i got the gray/green case.) also, in the corners where the hard plastic sandwiches the softer inner plastic, the hard plastic seemed to be overfilled to the point where there was a thin film of hard plastic over the softer silicon. =( hopefully i can get a refund. the case i got looks so sloppily made.

    even more impressive, the candyshell has the same results as the otterbox defender:

    i ordered three candyshells (black, white and dark gray),
    the gray and the black was perfectly, the white i receive had the same defects you describe, i sent it back to the store and get a new (and good) one, so its definitely not ok, but its happened.
