Review - Speck iPhone Case

I couldn't live without my iPhone. It's a sad but true fact I'm afraid.

In my Britmums Live goody bag we were lucky to receive a Speck case. I contacted the lovely team at Speck and asked if I could change my case to one for an iPhone 4 case.

I picked a case and couldn't wait for the delivery, which was very quick!


The case I picked was the CandyShell View for iphone 4/4s. I pick the colour white/aubergine because to be honest it was one of the more girly colours. It cost $39.95 and is available to buy HERE.

A little bit from the Speck website...

''This clever twist on our award-winning CandyShell case comes with a retractable stand for hands-free movie-watching or FaceTime chats. Pop out the stand on this accessory and set your iPhone 4S up however you like, in either portrait or landscape mode. When you’re done viewing, you can retract the stand back inside with an elegantly smooth, spring loaded mechanism.
The matte-finish hard outer shell gives impact-resistant protection, a little bit of grip, and slips easily in and out of your pockets. The soft inner layer provides shock-absorption and a protective cushion for your iPhone 4S or 4. CandyShell View also features press-thru button covers and a raised screen bezel.
  • CandyShell View case fits iPhone 4S and 4!
  • Integrated retractable stand
  • Co-molded construction combines hard plastic and soft rubber
  • Form-fit, one-piece, patented design
  • Raised screen bezel and rubberized button covers''


Lets start with the look of the case. The case is white and purple. Very pretty and girly. It was easy to put onto my phone and feels very sturdy. When I first put the case on my iPhone felt huge! I hated how big it felt as it isn't exactly the smallest of phones to start with but over the course of the day I got used to this and now it doesn't feel any bigger than normal. The case itself has a lot of padding within it and does provide very good protection.

Paige does grab my phone on a daily basis and occasionally will drop it. She has dropped it indoors and even I have dropped it and the case has protected it very well. It hasn't been dropped outside yet and hopefully if it was the case would protect it.

One special thing about his case and another reason why it is so big is the stand. It slides and pops into place so you can watch video's, play games or face time. I love standing it and listening to some music while washing up.

 
The case has buttons which cover the volume buttons and the lock button at the top. I aren't too keen on these but they do work well.

Overall I think this case is great. Does the job and looks good. I would like to see a few different colours as for me the design of a case also factors into the decision of buying a case.
