Good morning everyone! What a good day to do a review! Whoowhoo! Sorry in advance for this giant thread because I kinda have quite a lot of input on this. First, This is my SPECK CANDYSHELL INKED. The color is FRESHFLORAL PINK. This is my RHINOSHIELD PLAYPROOF. The color is WATERCOLOURED STRIPES WHITE. Both colors are so beautiful! I will try to stay as unbiased as I can, but I am definitely leaning towards RhinoShield and you will see why. Let's start with viewing each case individually and then put them side by side: This is the buttons on Speck. I really like their buttons; it is very easy to press and the soft mat feel is great. Yes, I noticed that the cutout for the mute button is not perfect. (I don't know if all Speck is like this, so let's just ignore it) The cutouts for the charge port and headphones. Very big cutouts, no problems with third party cables. A little messed up with the speaker hole as well, could this count as a defective product? Scratch resistant? Not so much. There are little scratches all over the case and one big scratch, I think it was from my keys. The age of this case is only about a week. Now comes PlayProof. The buttons. Clearly, RhinoShield's buttons are smaller than Speck, even the cutout hole for the mute button too, but no problem accessing the mute switch for me. Button feels firmer than Speck's as well, I would say it has better tactile feedback and they actually look fancier and more premium than Speck's. The cutouts on the bottom. Also smaller than Speck's cutout. But I really like the speaker holes individually placed like this. Holes big enough for my Beats headphone so I'm guessing most headphone heads should work fine. I haven't had a chance to drop my phone on neither Speck or RhinoShield, so I can't say much about their drop protection, but RhinoShield claims they protect up to 12 feet. I actually got this case after watching the drop review video from MobileReviews-Eh, so I will give it the benefit of the doubt on this. Now here comes one HUGE turn-off point I actually found on Speck: When I tried to take my phone out of Speck and into RhinoShield, I noticed it was really difficult to separate them. Nearly breaking a nail and grunting at the phone for almost a minute until I finally got it off. Not to mention when I tried taking it out, the gap between the case and the rubber made me nervous that either I will snap the case in two or that eventually they will come apart from each other Comparison side by side: When compared to each other side by side like this. I do feel that RhinoShield has won. The insides of both phones looked great but Rhinoshield's honeycombs made it looked more believable in shock absorbent. Speck is bigger in size. And the cutouts are less attractive when placed together. Conclusion: Speck has bigger cutouts. (but poorly made, might just it's defective thats all) Speck has bigger buttons. Speck is more expensive (through official site) Speck is easily scratched. RhinoShield has better tactile feedback RhinoShield is thinner/smaller in size. RhinoShield is easier to put on and off. RhinoShield looks more premium. Thanks for reading, and sorry about the long thread **EDIT: I got my PlayProof from its official site, so this is the link if you need it~ You have to scroll to the very bottom of the page to choose the model of you phone.
