Price Value QualityI needed a case that provided enough protection but did not bulk up my phone.
This case ended up being the one. Not too pricey and appears to be holding up to my usage. Slides in and out of the pocket with ease which was one of my concerns. It's rubber is hard enough not to shift on the phone or stick to pockets but pliable enough to easily take on and off to clean your phone. I would buy another one.
What a difference a case makes

Price Value QualityHad a competitor's case on my old 3G and liked it, so I bought the same model for the iPhone5 but it was just too bulky and even made me regret upgrading to the 5. Tried this case and it has changed how I feel about the 5 completely. The ergonomics are great, good balance between grip and slip, and a perfect fit (no wiggle or looseness as some users have noted). Seems a little pricey for what it is, but is competitive with market. Ordered direct from Speck to avoid cheap knock-offs. Delivery was quick and free. Great case Speck!
Just what I wanted!

Quality Price ValueI was looking for a case with a very slim profile since I want to appreciate how thin my iPhone 5 is. I tried several other Speck cases and liked them but they were just too bulky. The PixelSkin HD is very thin but has good protection and extra grip which I appreciate. My case fits well and I haven't had any problems with it being too big like other users. Wish it was a little bit cheaper but I love Speck's products and know it will last a long time. Overall, it is exactly what I was looking for and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again, especially if there were more colors available.

Quality Price ValueHad this case on my 4S and it was great. This one is alittle too big as others have stated. My issue is it is very rough feeling on the edges. the old one was so smooth. A little dissapointed.
Not all cases are the same

Quality Price ValueI bought this case yesterday, and it didn't fit the iPhone perfectly. It wiggled a little bit like some customers commented. However, I brought it back to the store and tried on a couple of other ones, to my surprise, some are very well fitted. Especially the grey color cases. One can only imagine that not all cases are made from the same mold. Although this case does look very slim fit from the side, from face on, it does look a little bit bulky. Color one would prob look best on the black iPhone 5.
Still the one

Quality Price ValueJust bought this cover and it is awesome. I have been using the speck pixelskin HD for my iPads and iPhones for a while now. Nothing from any other maker comes close.

Quality Price ValueI am always wary when buying a case as it seems a shame to cover up the amazing detail that went in to designing the phone (especially the iPhone 5). However, the design of this case is incredible: the phone still has the premium feel, but feels more sturdy and safe than the bare phone. The case fits to perfection, and is very comfortable in the hand. There is not an angle you can look at the case to make it appear ugly, and surprisingly, the sound from the phones speaker actually sounds better due to the cases mesh speaker covering (not sure if that was intentional)!
I have used Speck cases before, and have always felt they are the best case makers. In my opinion, this case is the best iPhone case yet, and would highly reccomended.
Very nice case, but some drawbacks

Quality Price ValuePros: Case looks great, feels great, and keeps the iPhone 5 in it's original slim form factor.
Cons: Fitment problems. I bought this case about 2 weeks after the iPhone 5 dropped hoping that Speck addressed the fitment issues. I was wrong, the case loves to roll over and slide around the aluminum band and is extremely flexible around the phone. If I dropped it I would seriously be afraid of the phone falling out of the case. My sister has the PixelSkin HD for her 4S and it literally fits like a glove. : (
Conclusion: I would use this case as a backup only, as I use a Candyshell Satin as my main day-to-day case. It fits in your pocket really well and doesn't attract pocket lint. Unfortunately given the aforementioned issues I had to rate it 3's across the board.
Great case, almost perfect ....

Quality Price ValueGreat case, fits my iphone 5 like a glove and offers adequate protection and not too bulky. Only issue I have is I use Shure earphones and the plug will not fit into this case since they are oversized. Other than that, great case.
Q: What is the PixelSkin HD case made of?
A: PixelSkin HD cases are made of TPU - Thermoplastic Polyurethane. TPU is one of the world’s most awesome polymers (plastics) because it can be mixed to very specific consistencies, which allows us to get the perfect blend of elements to create the perfect texture and material. PixelSkin HD is not as soft and squishy as silicone ( our “regular” PixelSkin) - it’s still a soft, flexible plastic, but it’s much slicker and more dense- allowing it to slide in and out of your pocket easily. The density allows us to make a skinny, form-fitting case that still packs a very protective punch.
Q: What is the finish on the outside of the PixelSkin HD?
A: PixelSkin HD has a matte impact-resistant hard plastic finish that glides in/out of pockets with ease.
Q: Will the PixelSkin HD fit my iPhone 5?
A: Yes! Our PixelSkin HD has been measured to have a precise form-fit to the iPhone 5. Our form-fit PixelSkin HD is designed to maintain its precision-fit over time.
Q: Can I use all the features of my iPhone 5 without removing the PixelSkin HD case?
A: Yes! We've included rubberized button covers and designed cut-outs for all the iPhone 5's lenses, speakers, ports, and sensors.
Q: Is the screen protected?
A: The raised front bezel helps protect your screen from coming in contact with other surfaces that might scratch it. If you’d like a screen film that protects your entire screen, check out our totally awesome ShieldView screen films.
Q: Does Speck make iPhone 5 screen films or protectors that will work with this case?
A: Yes! Our ShieldView screen protectors for iPhone 5 are made of cutting-edge low-tack materials, protect from scratches and smudges, and are easy to apply/remove. We also include one bonus back film!
Q: Is this case "dockable" like the CandyShell Flip case?
A: No, however it is cutout around the plug connector, so you can plug it in without removing the case.
Q: Can I be notified if a color or item is out of stock?
A: Sure! Just go to the page for the product style and color you want and hit the “Out of Stock? NOTIFY ME” button.
Q: You haven't answered my question.
A: Please email us! For questions about an order you have placed or other general questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
