    Hey guys, I've been looking at a ton of video and written reviews, and I still can't make my mind up between the two. I'm looking for the one that has more of a 'rubbery' and 'grippy' feel to it. I regret buying the Speck CandyShell because it's so slippery! Did Speck ever release a newer version of the Pixelskin HD case that is not 'loose'? I've seen a lot of people here complain about the fit. Also, some reviewers claim the OVRMLD to have a rubbery texture, but on the other hand others claim it to be plastic-y, so I'm kind of confused.

    So if there is anyone out there who has experienced both and could tell me which one is better, that would be great.

    I can only speak for the Speck PixelSkin HD and I have to say I love that case. Comfortable and thin. Recommend it ;)

    OVRMLD = CandyShell Satin, I think you'll prefer the Pixelskin HD.

    I know it's not one of your two, but I was REALLY impressed with the Belkin Candy Grip.

    I have the Speck Pixelskin for my iPod and I like it. It reminds me of the Xtrememac case I had. Very form fitting. If you shop around you can find one for $10-15.

    I've never used the Incipio, but all i can say about the Pixelskin HD is that it lost some of it's charm since the 4/4s days

    The OVRMLD is really pretty, but it is the only case I have ever purchased that I could not get on the phone (and I have had a lot of cases). It was REALLY stiff. Perhaps they have been improved since I got mine, however.

    If you're looking at TPU cases like the Pixelskin, check out Diztronic. Their matte TPU case is my favorite so far. I tried cases from Incipio, Belkin, and Speck, and none of these were as good as the $9 Diztronic case.
