PC Mag Best iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 Cases Award

Give your new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 all-over protection with the Speck CandyShell + Faceplate. We paired our best-selling CandyShell, Speck's patented dual-layer, full-coverage iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 case, with a super protective faceplate.

The CandyShield faceplate features TrueTap™ technology that bonds to your screen for superior touch response and is easy to apply. A carefully crafted opening on the faceplate means the case supports Apple's new Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the home button. The sleek and slim CandyShell iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 case features two integrated layers of protection. A durable impact-absorbing hard shell coupled with shock-absorbing corners and lining. Who says protection has to be ugly?

With CandyShell + Faceplate, we've got your phone covered with the lab-tested proven protection you've come to expect and trust from Speck. And like all of our cases, the CandyShell + Faceplate is backed by a one year warranty.

  • Form-fitting. CandyShell + Faceplate fits the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5.

  • Superior touch response. Type away, text away, game away. Speck's TrueTap™ technology bonds the CandyShield faceplate to the touchscreen.
  • Quick and easy application. The faceplate can also be easily removed for cleaning and reuse.

MILITARY-GRADE DROP PROTECTION

As the above material makes clear, Speck has tested a number of its cases and determined that the identified cases meet or exceed certain standards often used by the military to determine effectiveness of protection. To be clear, this does not mean that your devices will never break. If you drop them hard enough, or from high enough, or at just the wrong angle, your device may still be damaged. And if you happen to drop your device into a river of molten lava, Speck case or no Speck case, let it go. Cause it’s gone.

Per our limited liability warranty, Speck has no liability for any damage or destruction to consumer electronic devices or other personal property that are in the products, including, without limitation, laptops, cell phones, MP3 players, DVD players or handheld devices, or any loss of data contained in the foregoing devices.

    I've been protecting devices with Speck cases for several years now. I picked up one of these CandyShell + FACEPLATE cases at Best Buy for my new iphone 5s, and there's a noticeable difference in quality from what I'm used to. First off, the case itself is warped in the top left corner, and no amount of flexing it would straighten it out. Second, the faceplate itself seems rather flimsy compared to the case. I realize that it's partially to reduce thickness, but it's clearly a different grade of plastic, so it also doesn't quite match the case. In addition, there's a noticeable gap between the faceplate at the case at the top.

    Unfortunately, this one's going back to the store. On the plus side, Groupon's running a sale on Speck iPhone cases today.

    Love this cover - especially the faceplate that comes with it, I haven't had a problem with it coming off or moving at all. Also has protected my phone through many tumbles and falls. Wish Speck they would have more color options though. Purple anyone?

    I love my candy shell but very disappointed in the faceplate. From the first day my faceplate didn't fit properly or stay in place. I havnt been at to find a replacement. I had purchased three of the candy shell
    Covers with faceplates. The other two were for my children. They have both purchased a different holder for the up iPhone. And discarded the candyshell in a drawer

    This case is worth every penny. No other case protects like this while still keeping a sleek look. This case is not overly bulky and looks cute, but packs a punch with protection. I absolutely love the faceplate, it has saved me from cracking my screen countless times when I have dropped it face down. The faceplate can also be used in conjunction with other cases. I have a JCREW case that I use with the faceplate for added protection. Love it!

    Love the candyshell cases, have had several over the years. Was excited to see the faceplate when I bout my iPhone 5s. Sadly the faceplate is slightly warped in one corner so that the faceplate has a bubble in that corner. If you look at it from the side you can tell it is not perfectly flat. I am great at applying screen protectors, no bubbles. But this is disappointing. Wish I could get just the faceplate. Other than that the case is great.

    I love my case, and had the faceplate on for a while however I did end up removing it for a different screen protector. This was because it took away from the clean look of my phone screen, so I decided to switch to a completely clear protector instead to return to the cleaner and sleeker look. Keep this in mind when purchasing this product-the candyshell by itself comes in a wider variety of colors (many of the colors of just the candyshell are better in my opinion than the faceplate cases) and purchasing and individual candyshell case & different screen protector may be a better option. I LOVE this case though, and wish I would have gotten it for my phone much sooner. I've been through many cases & if I would have purchased this one first I would have saved a LOT of money!! This case is durable, sleek, and has an overall good feel. I highly recommend it-but you should consider whether or not you want to purchase the faceplate as well considering there's much better screen protection options out there that provide a better appearance as well.
  • Great Case.

    Pros:
    -Overall Look. I have been a long time fan of the Speck cases. The designs are minimalist but appealing to many different consumers. This case no different. I love the color scheme and sleek design.
    -Lightweight and slim. This case is not bulky at all. Its very slightly taller (due to the face plate) than the original Speck cases and overall very slim.
    -The faceplace is amazing. The "bubbles" that other people have mentioned are not as bad as they are making them out to be if the case is installed correctly. There are two small bubbles near the corner, which are hardly noticeable or distracting. Honestly, much better looking than any screen protector that I've ever tried to put on my phone. But, with any other case I have used that has the built in screen protector, there is a noticeable loss of clarity and responsiveness. I have noticed none of that with this face place. I can hardly tell there is even one on there.

    Cons:

    -Scratching. I have owned several Speck cases and they are notorious for the backs getting scratches fairly easily. I feel like as much as I baby my products, there should be no reason that the case should pick up as many scratches as quickly as it does. But with the Otterboxes, the rubber stretches out, gets dirty and grimy, and the Lifeproof cases lose functionality the more you take them on/off, the headphone jack begins stripping, etc. I only compare these other two cases because they are the two I have the most experience with. Point being, the more you use a product, you put wear and tear on it. The fact that this product shows its wear sooner than other products though, is somewhat of a draw back.
    -Price. I feel like as with most cell phone cases, this product is overpriced. It's priced comparatively to the Otterbox Defender, but due to much less rubber and plastic, I feel it may not be AS protective. I think the prices of these cases overall are overpriced. $35 for the regular Speck cases is not very reasonable, especially when they don't even include a stick on screen protector. The entire line could stand to go down by $20, but that's just my opinion.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the product. I would definitely recommend it for decent protection for the average buyer. It keeps your phone cute and lightweight, while still giving you some protection for phone and screen.

    This is the best cover I have had. It covers a small scratch on my phone and is sleek and preserves the nice shape of the phone without being bulky. Please make more colors! I check back for them all the time.
