Speck CandyShell iPhone 6 cases

The iPhone 6 is here and so are the CandyShell cases by Speck Products. Speck’s CandyShell cases are some of the most popular for iPhones and for good reason. All the cases have perfect cutouts for the iPhone ports and camera. The buttons are covered and easy to use. And even though all the cases have “military-grade” protection, most of them don’t add a lot of bulk.

Here’s an overview of the four Speck CandyShell cases for the iPhone 6 (4.7″):

The CandyShell is sort of the classic case in the line. It only adds 0.16 inches to the iPhone 6’s thickness, but is drop tested to meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G standards. It comes in several colors and the back has a glossy finish. The only drawback to the CandyShell is that the glossy finish is prone to scratches.

Available from Amazon.com for about $35.

CandyShell Inked

The CandyShell Inked case is identical to the regular CandyShell, except that it’s wrapped in one of several high resolution graphics. It also has a scratch-resistant coating so it stays looking nice.

Available direct from Speck for about $40.

CandyShell Grip

The CandyShell Grip is my personal favorite. Its textured rubber ridges make it super easy to hold and stays put on smooth surfaces. I’ve used it on the iPhone 5s, and a couple of Samsung Galaxy devices and will probably be what I end up using for the iPhone 6.

Available from Amazon.com for about $35.

CandyShell Card

The CandyShell Card case is a wallet and case combo. It’s the first time I’ve tried a case like this and I can’t say that I was high on the idea until I gave it a whirl. It holds up to three cards and some folded up cash. If you store three cards, you can fit one or two bills. If you need more room for cash, just take out the cards. The convenience is pretty neat, especially when you want to run out for a quick errand or to exercise. I can throw in my ID, a credit card and some cash, while leaving my bulky wallet at home. And with Apple Pay coming soon, some of you might be able to get rid of your real wallet altogether.

Available from Amazon.com for about $40.

That’s it for now, but judging by the variety of Speck’s iPhone 5/5s cases, I’m positive there will be a lot more Speck iPhone 6 cases on the way.
