San Mateo, Calif. (June 7, 2016) - Everyone wants to protect their smartphone, but not everyone wants to cover it up. In April 2016, the top-selling case in the U.S. was Speck’s CandyShell Clear*, according to NPD Group. That includes cases sold at retail and online, and it is the first time CandyShell claimed the top spot after consistently being the #1 clear case December 2015 - April 2016.*

While most clear cases yellow quickly or are made of flimsy TPU, CandyShell Clear is made with the same innovative material automakers use for headlight lens covers. A hard, shock-resistant exterior wraps around a soft, rubbery inner layer that is highly durable, UV and chemically resistant, and has been lab-tested to resist yellowing. This is the first time it has been applied to a smartphone case and it has helped to make CandyShell Clear a top seller.

“A clear case is as close as you can get to having nothing at all covering up your phone, but years of poorly designed and discolored cases made lots of people stop buying them,” said Speck’s Vice President of Design, Bryan Hynecek. “We spent more than a year experimenting with materials to create a case that’s super protective but looks like almost nothing at all.”
