Introducing Speck CandyShell iPhone 6/6s Cases
It’s 2016 and Speck has rolled out the newest models and designs of their iconic CandyShell cases for the Apple iPhone 6/6s. In this post, we’re taking a look at Speck’s latest editions–CandyShell Clear, CandyShell Inked Luxury, and CandyShell Inked Jonathan Adler. We’ll even tell you where to get your very own Jonathan Adler iPhone 6/6s case for less than half list.
One hint–it’s the internet’s leading retailer.
CandyShell Case Design and Function
All of the Speck CandyShell iPhone 6 case models fit like a glove on my recently purchased Apple iPhone.
I had to push the cases on my iPhone more forcefully than used to with Speck products. But once it was on, the snug fit assured me that my iPhone was well-protected. The outside of the case is hard plastic with a non-slip, rubber-lined interior. A raised bezel runs the perimeter on the front of the case to protect the screen from scratches when your iPhone is faced down. At a thickness of 0.16 inch, the case is slim enough not to feel overly bulky, yet thick enough to provide ample impact protection at military-grade drop standards.
The power and volume controls click naturally beneath the rubber buttons with no fuss. At the top left of the case, there is an opening for the mute function, allowing you to operate the switch at its natural state on the iPhone. At the base of the case are openings for the 3.5mm audio jack, the Lightning adapter and the speaker. Avoiding the common issue of an improperly sized 3.5mm plug, the CandyShell cases provide a larger opening to accommodate a variety of audio jacks.
CandyShell Clear/Clear with Glitter for the iPhone 6/6s
The new CandyShell Clear and Clear with Glitter designs for iPhone 6/6s are the perfect way to show off the factory finish of your new mobile phone. These dual-layer cases offer military-grade drop protection and are either completely clear or offer some shimmering glitter to display the new finish of your iPhone 6/6s. If this isn’t enough, the CandyShell Clear is resistant to ultraviolet light and many chemicals, and it resists yellowing.
CandyShell Inked Luxury for the iPhone 6/6s
The CandyShell Inked Luxury Edition features over a dozen unique wraparound designs, printed with scratch-resistant and fade-resistant technology. This luxury series offers some truly eye-catching design and color combinations that make protecting your phone more stylish than ever.
According to Jenny Davis, Speck Colors, Materials, and Finishes Design Manager, “CandyShell Luxury Edition let us incorporate our unmatched protection with sophisticated designs so our customers never have to compromise on either. At Speck, protection is our first priority, and we never compromise on designing quality cases.”
CandyShell Inked Jonathan Adler for the iPhone 6/6s
The CandyShell Inked Jonathan Adler Series offers eight “impeccable designs” from the world-renowned New Jersey-born designer. Coupled with all the same protective features; you will be inclined to put your iPhone face down, just to check out these unique designs.
According to Bryan Hynecek, VP of Design, “Consumers shouldn’t have to compromise on protection when they buy a designer case. With the new Jonathan Adler by Speck collection, they don’t have to.”
Speckulations and Final Thoughts
All in all, these are excellent cases, which earn our highest recommendation. Speck continues to dominate with their CandyShell series’. List priced from $34.95-$49.95; these cases are a worthy purchase that will last you a long time. The hard plastic exterior and non-slip rubber interior provide a snug fit with MIL-STD-810G military-grade drop protection. The raised screen bezel ensures that your iPhone is shielded at all angles. There’s no compromise to the functionality of your iPhone 6/6s in any way. Moreover, the safety is significantly improved.
The CandyShell series has dozens of varieties and colors to find the perfect fit for your personality and lifestyle.
Speck’s CandyShell cases have a one-year limited warranty with a 30-day guarantee.
CandyShell Inked Jonathan Adler cases are available at SpeckProducts, Amazon and other retailers with list pricing of $49.95. Amazon currently has all eight designs between $12-18, which by our definition is a steal.
