    I've heard the CandyShell flakes and I'm not sure what it meant by that. Could someone explain/give me a picture?

    Also, is the dock piece really that easy to break?

    I could be completely wrong, but it might refer to the case color having a shiny flake in the plastic. Like glitter. Think of a car paint job with shiny metallic flecks of glittery shimmers in it.

    I know speck has made cases like that in the past. I could be off base though.

    I thought it might have been the rubber kinda peeling. But if this is the case, I really could care less. Thanks.

    You are right. It is the peeling of the rubber.

    Yes its the rubber that's pealing, the little bits tend to get on the screen and it feels like there are eraser bits all over the screen. As much as I love this case, I hate the fact that it flakes.

    Got a new CandyShell Flip. Been using this for 2 days and guess what.. it's flaking already. TDon't get this case.

    Are Speck products deteriorating? Never had this problem before..
