I purchased the new ipod touch on day one, and had to patiently wait for cases to come out. Previously on my 4th generation ipod touch, i used the Belkin "grip vue" case, and absolutely loved its soft, grippy characteristics. I wanted this same case again, but it is not available. So i chose KaysCase as the replacement.

Fit and finish, quality

The case fits on the 5th generation ipod touch very snug. Even with a screen protector on the screen, it did not interfere or lift up the protector. The case allows for the protection of the camera lense that is elevated from the body of the ipod. There is a visible manufacturing seam around the edges, but this does not distract the user whatsoever. The top and the bottom (hold switch side, and connector side) of the case seem to have a bit of stretch. By that i mean its almost if the case is just the slightest bit small. But i do not mind this because i would rather it be snug opposed to loose.

The finish on the case is what you expect for 12 bucks (at the time of purchase). It is not a matte black finish, but rather a semi reflective surface. It is very smooth to the hand, but when left on a table of other furniture, it grips well enough that a bump wont send it flying. This is mostly the reason why i bought this one.

The buttons still function requiring just slightly more pressure when actuating them, but its not a big concern. The connector fits without any issues, and the speaker get room to breathe.

My major concern for all cases is the ability to use a larger size headphone jack input. What i am talking about is the connector part of the headphones is much larger than your OEM apple earbuds. I use the Sennheiser HD 515, and im sure many other over ear headphones that use the stereo jack (6.3mm) and require the use of the adapter. Most cases ive bought dont work using this set up. However! This case works fine. There is just enough space for my adapter to fit. I will say your mileage may vary, but my Sennheiser adapter works.

Size

The case add very little bulk to the device, and quite honestly it can be beneficial. The device is very thin to begin with, and to some may be too thin. This case is probably about the thickness of a AAA battery. Very minimalistic approach.

Overall

You cant go wrong with this case, honestly. For 12 dollars, you would be hard pressed to find a silicone style case competitor. It fits the Ipod just fine, allowing full use of all buttons and connectors, while still retaining that slim style that makes the newest generation ipod touch fantastic.

I really like the case it's so cute however there was a little discoloration next to the nose. Other than that I love the case,it's not too bulky and the cutouts are perfect for the iPod touch 5th Generation . I would recommend to a friend.

I bought a case for 2 reasons: protect the back and give my iPod a good grip so it doesn't slip.

It definitely protects the back. Of course it is not as aesthetically pleasing as the back of the iPod, but it has a nice glossy look that works well with the white colored iPod.The holes are lined up perfectly for the camera and loop, and it has absolutely no problem with my screen protector.

The reason I rated it down is because of the grip I was expecting. It say "soft skin cover." I was expecting something made from rubber or soft plastic, but this is pretty dense. Once you put it on, it just feels like hard plastic. I am not one to drop electronics, but this case is pretty slippery, and when I put it on the armrest on my leather couch, it slides right off.

Do I like it? Yes. Is it durable? Yes. Does it accomplish what I expected? For the most part. I will definitely keep it, but I wish the description was a bit more accurate.

I got this for my brother's birthday and he absolutely loved it! Very durable and has a place to store cards and money. It is a little flimsy when it comes to watching movies folded like in the biggest picture, but i'm sure it will work better when it has more use. It is a great price for this product, too, and I highly recommend it.

I just got this for my ipod touch 5th gen. Fits pretty good for someone who doesnt do anything crazy with it. It is very thin so I dont reccommend using it for something hardcore where its possible to drop it on pavement. Screen protector is great, fits perfectly and went on smooth. I have no need to use the stylus pen though, I'd rather use my finger.

The Speck CandyShell iPod Touch 5 case is one of my favorite cases I have that looks good and protects.

Pros:
-Easy install and uninstall
-Has a lip that goes above the screen to protect it
-Protects well against drops
-Buttons are covered, protected and are easy to press
-Very slim design
-Comfortable in the hand
-Works with screen protectors
-Flash photos are not affected
-Large cutout for the loop button on the back
-Large lightning port and headphone jack cutout (works with AmazonBasic's lightning cable)

Cons:
-Expensive but Speck is a generally an expensive brand
-Glossy back makes the case a fingerprint magnet
-Glossy back can be slippery

Note: If you need a grippy case take a look at Specks CandyShell Grip for iPod Touch 5.

This is an excellent case and I highly recommend it.

Watch my video review.
I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, for free to keep, and I promised that my review is fair and honest.
