    Safe, strong, grippy, AND deters theft!

    I purchased this new Speck iPhone protector for my aging 5s a couple of weeks back. I can easily report that it's a cut above the rest. I have a tendency to drop my iPhone quite a bit (clumsy, yes I am). My phone works every time after the fall; thus, my phone is quite protected. In fact, I drop my iPhone less because of the rubbery ridges. It adheres to any surface too! The rubbery ridges help my iPhone stay secure on the dash of my car. My previous Speck iPhone protector was very cool looking but it was constantly slipping out of my hands, off tables, etc. the rubber ridge protecting the face was deteriorating. And it was a "slick" case. Very easy for pockets but a problem for clumsy hands. I saw this more stable product on the shelves and purchased it immediately. I have no regrets. The only (small) complaint I had (originally): the rubbery ridges do make it harder for me to remove my phone from my pocket. Not the end of the world really—especially helpful should some pick-pocket attempt to snatch it. So, in effect, this is an antic-theft device too!

    An Ok Case

    I got this case for the iPhone se. It worked, but it didn't have any face protection. I thought that there was a least a plastic screen protector in the box, but there wasn't. This is my fault as I should have read the box closer. I was willing to let it go, and use it as it was for my boyfriend and he is usually good about not dropping phones, but this case is super slippery. It has the rubber, but it doesn't seem to help. We put it on a wood floor and it spun and slid. It made us nervous that he might drop it and break the screen. It was for this reason that we chose to return it.

    Fits my iPhone SE perfectly, rubber extensions line up with the buttons on the phone so they can be pushed with the case on while being protected too, horizontal raised hard rubber strips along the case body allows a sure and comfortable grip of the phone, even with the case on the phone fits into my shirt or pants pocket comfortably, raised rubber around the front glass provides some impact protection to the glass from drops.

    I haven't had this case long, but I've felt confident with this case on my phone. So I have dropped my phone a few times while in it, and I've got to say it's awesome! My phone hasn't gotten a scratch or dent. I've dropped it on rocks and tile from waist high. The case has cracked slightly by one of the volume buttons but I think that's because I have taken the case off and on several times. I would buy it again.

    This was a repeat purchase for the same case that had reached the end of its usefulness. It had provided excellent protection from a number of drops and although it eventually became chipped and cracked the iPhone remained unharmed. It provides good corner and edge protection to the screen and frame of the phone. The rubberized ribs also prevent slips and loss of grip when holding the phone.

    My main attraction to this case was what I would call its "ribbing" since I don't know what Speck calls it. Since I often carry my iPhone in my shirt pocket I believe it is the ribbing of the case that keeps it in my pocket when I bend over. Otherwise, some headphone plugs don't seat well in the headphone jack due to the case thickness, but that is a common feature in my experience with other cases as well.

    I love speck cases. I have them on all my devices but this is my favorite one of them all. It looks like a clone trooper helmet from Star Wars. The rubber grips on the sides are perfect for butter fingers like me. I wish that there was just a little bit more screen protection but still a great looking and protecting case. It's hard to find a good case for these small phones because the iPhone 5 is old.

    Considering that iPhone 5 cases are rare these days, this Speck case was a great find and value. Our son picked this case out for his phone and has since dubbed it, "The Stormtrooper case". The case is easy to hold, less bulky for easy pocket holding and still sports Speck's tried and true protective abilities. If you can find this or a similar case, I highly recommend picking it up.

    Went to return phone case since did not fit on the phone. Rep at the store said I cannot return item with very bad attitude since it was Black Friday after waiting in line. He said we are not accepting returns on Black Friday and I have to come back on Tuesday to return. I went on Tuesday and returned all the items purchased worth $540. Will never depends on BestBuy and will buy stuff from Amazon.

    I used to have an otter. It was definitely sturdy but was all black so I was always forgetting where I put it down. I put yellow fabric paint on it but even that wasn't bright enough for me to find it. So when I saw this one, I decided to give it a try. As long as I put it face down on the table, I have no problem finding the phone. An added plus is that it looks stylish.

    Use this nice thin case on my work phone that I keep in my cargo pants pocket, I have kneeled on the phone, slammed the phone into walls and car doorsand and of course dropped the phone a bunch of times. have had no issues. Did I mention I have had the same iPhone C for like 5 years now. This case is awesome if you are looking for protection that is not as bulky as otterbox.

    I had the same speck candyshell grip previously and the thin plastic parts at the chargin port, mute switch and headphone jack were breaking, Otherwise I liked the case. on this one the soft rubber like material at the charging port is coming off. My husband has a new one too and the grip on the back is coming off on his. These new ones don't seem to be good quality.

    For an iPhone SE, it's hard to find the old iPhone 5 series cases. This case works great and I bought it for the rubber grip feel that doesn't slip out of my hand the way the Apple leather cases do. I found it only to be available in white at my local Best Buy. Wish there were more colors to choose from, but then again the iPhone SE size is rather hard to find.

    Love the Speck cases. They are durable and simple. The little rubber grips do come loose and pull off in small pieces but it doesn't effect the case protection. I've had mine for 1+ year and it's still a solid case. Phone has been dropped a few times with no problems. Get the case and armor glass for the screen and you will be good to go.

    Before using this case I dropped or almost dropped my phone several times. We both now use the same case and we love them. The grip seems to be just right, because I haven't had any drops or near misses since. The buttons are a little more difficult to press but that keeps me from pressing them accidentally.

    My daughter did a lot of research before selecting this case. It has a good feel and grip. Supposed to withstand drops. Make sure you get a screen protector. Only negative thing about this color, is it blends into the ‘environment’ and isn’t as easy to find compared to a bright colored case.

    There aren't a whole lot of options left for iPhone 5s cases. However, I like this case better than some of those that are more expensive. This is a no frills type of phone case. One thing I like is the textured back of the case. Others are too slick and can easily slip out of our hand or pocket.

    I love that this case is super grippy which makes it easy to hold and gives you a sense of security when holding your phone that it won't go flying out of your hand. It's a very handsome case and goes nicely with the already beautiful iPhone design. Another great case from my favorite brand of cases, Speck.

    This is an excellent iPhone cover for average use. It has a very low profile, thus not making the phone much larger, and provides drop protection from all sides. The grip material makes it much easier to hold than a slick cover, but not so grippy as to make it hard to slide in and out of a pocket.

    This is my second one. I love it for the size, I carry it in my pocket 90% of the time. The first one held up for about 18 months before it broke in two places. Even then it was still usable as it was. I only got a new one because I got a new phone that was a different size.
