    I think they both are the same minus the back pattern but both are TPU and look like same thickness. I prefer geometric's looks but hd looks cool too.

    The Pixelskin looks too much like a tire track to me lol, Geometric is amazing :D I'm slightly worried about the glossy parts picking up finger prints but it's still amazing looking

    I have a video processing now that I'll post when ready. It compares both the GeoMetric and PixelSkin HD.

    I think the person above is thinking of the PixelSkin not the HD version because it does not look like a tire :)

    Pixelskin is like a tire, HD looks like chiclet gum pieces.

    Just received my Geometric. It's thin and I like the back design.

    It's a keeper!

    I would go with the Geometric. I love how that case looks.

    I have my Pixelskin HD coming in September, but you definately sealed the deal with me. Just ordered my GeoMetric from Speck. Thanks again. :)

    The Geo looks really nice. Do you think the shiny areas on the back will get scratched easily over time?

    I wish I would've picked the PixelHD instead of the Reveal :mad: I just requested that Speck send me the Geometric case instead of waiting for the new Candyshell case :D

    For anyone out here that has both the HD and the Geo....Which one offers better drop protection?

    They are exactly the same except for the texture. The PixelSkin will offer more drop protection.

    My Geometric arrived today. Speck agreed to send it because I didn't want to wait more weeks for my Candy Shell replacement. I got to pick anything that was in stock and I chose the Geometric. Speck actually sent it FedEx Overnight on their dime...which is extremely cool.

    When I first pulled it out of the packaging I was honestly underwhelmed...then I put it on my iPhone....and I was hooked. The case just feels great. Just the right amount of slim, just the right amount of grip, doesn't seem to have the flash issue, enough rim that I can set it face down and looks pretty good.

    Good stuff and fantastic service from Erik at Speck.

    I hope Geometric is sufficient drop protection because this case has really grown on me after a day of using it. PixelSkin (not HD ,the silicone regular one) will probably protect it more but it's a pain to slip in and out of my pocket and bulks up the phone considerably. I like the argyle one I have too but I think that offers very little drop protection (it's like a super thin condom haha).

    I think the shiny parts could scratch over time, but compared to CandyShell that is 100% shiny, the fear of scratches is moot for me.

    I think the shiny parts on the geo are still TPU and not hard plastic so they probably wont scratch easily. Finger prints are another story...

    I think you will find that the Geo shows less scratches because I doesn't have a single point of contact when you set it down on it's back. I personally am setting it down face-first for extra protection of the screen.

    What makes you say that? I would have said the opposite.
