The Candyshell + Faceplate for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 will provide a great deal of protection for your iPhone device, and in our opinion, it will add a lot of style to it as well. It’s actually a standard Candyshell case, that comes with a special screen protector. Speck are well known for making top quality cases for smartphones and the Candyshell + Faceplate case definitely belongs to that category.
The Candyshell case is known to provide good protection for mobile devices. This is a dual layer case, which comes in one piece. The case has an outer layer which is made out of hard plastic, and an inner layer which is made out of soft rubber. The inner layer is thick enough to provide the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 with good drop protection, while the outer layer will keep your iPhone scratch free. The Candyshell + Faceplate case differs from the standard Candyshell by only one thing: It has a special screen protector that was designed especially for the Candyshell case. It’s actually a very good screen protector. It doesn’t interfere with the touch sensitivity of your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5 at all, it’s really smooth to slide your fingers on and of course, it protects your screen against scratches. Speck provide detailed instructions on how to successfully apply the Faceplate on the iPhone’s screen. The Candyshell offers a generous raised lip above the screen, which will protect your screen in case you place your iPhone facing down on a flat surface, or if you drop it on its screen. Overall, this case offers good protection to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 against scratches, hits and and even serious drops.
The Candyshell case is one of the best looking cases out there for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, and the Faceplate makes it look even better. There’s a matching Faceplate color for every color you choose for your Candyshell case and we really like how Speck designers design both the Candyshell case and Faceplate itself. If you follow closely after the installation of the Faceplate, your iPhone will look really great. As we said earlier, the installation instructions are very detailed, so you should’nt have any problems. Even if you left some air bubbles beneath the faceplate, you receive special stickers with this case, which designed to remove any dust particles that may be trapped under the Faceplate, without leaving any marks. The only downside we can think of with the design of the Candyshell + Faceplate case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, is that it has a smaller variety of colors to choose from, than the standard Candyshell case. Only 6 colors, compared to the 22 of the standard Candyshell case.
We like the Candyshell +Faceplate for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, a lot. It offers great protection against drops and it adds a lot of style, to the already very stylish iPhone 5s and iPhone 5.
