I have owned every iphone since the 3G, and have used dozens of cases.
I've always been using "safer" cases, since I'm a klutz, and I regularly drop my phone.
Anyway, this is the best case I have seen or used yet.

First, functionality. The case is a perfect blend of a soft inner shell, and hard plastic molded on top of that. This is a great combo, which really offers protection from everything except water. My wife had used a Speck CandyShell on her iPhone4, while I used an Otterbox Defender on my iPhone4S (I was really scared of the glass back). Well, 1.5 years and many drops later, both phones survived in the same condition. I was nicely surprised, since my wife had quite a few nasty drops. Also worth noting is that on Otterbox cases, the soft and hard shells are not molded together. Not only is that bulkier, the soft shell stretches over time and doesn't fit well. I also prefer a hard outer shell, because soft ones are hard to put in your pocket. The grips on this Candyshell case did not make it harder to put in my pocket than your average hard case. Just what I wanted.

Second, the rubber "grips" are superb. The previous Speck Candyshell Grips (for iphone 4/4S) had a horrible grip pad that was glued on, and was deep enough to get much lint stuck in there all the time. Lotsa bad reviews on Amazon. On this updated model, the grips are glued on, but they each sit in their own precisely cut recess in the hard plastic. Great Design. They are also shallow enough to provide excellent grip and not attract too much lint. Also, the rubber grips keep the case elevated, so far PREVENTING SCRATCHES to the external hard plastic shell, a common complaint about the regular Candyshell (NON-Grip)Case.

Third, size.

I bought this case from Speck (white/black) and it pretty much addresses every design flaw that has been associated with the Candyshells for other iPhones. The grips seem to be well made this time, not lint traps. The case fits perfectly and has a nice slim profile. The rubber covering the buttons give good tactile feedback and the buttons are easy to push. One big upgrade is at the bottom of the case where the lightning connector is located. The small strip of case rubber/plastic that bridges around the connector port is much smaller than before which means a much less chance of breaking off like on practically all other Candyshells of the past.

Great case and the white/black looks slick on a black iPhone5.

UPDATE (5 months in):

The case has held up well. The strip of plastic around the lightnight port is showing no signs of coming apart. The only wear&tear sign is on the rubber grip strips that are on the rounded edge of the phone where they rub against my pocket when taking my phone out. I expected this to happen and it is pretty minor. Unless I have my phone about 8" from my face I can't even tell the rubber strips are worn down a little.

UPDATE 2:

My case is starting to fall apart so I'm taking some stars away. The rubber edge around face of the case is peeling off in some areas, the rubber grips on the curved parts are loose from being taken in and out of my pocket, and there are cracks on the speaker cover. Great case while it is new but does now hold up to wear and tear.

I consistently buy either speck or otterbox. This case feels really good in the hand, it adds minimal bulk to the phone and the grips make it nice to hold. I would still get some type of screen protector since the case does leave the screen exposed.

I looked all over for a case for my iphone 5. I wanted something sleek that would let the beauty of the phone shine through. I also love the grips, I tend to drop my stuff a lot so hopefully this will help. Good construction and looks like it will wear well. Very happy with my purchase!

Edit-my toddler just threw my phone across the room and it doesn't have a scratch!

I have owned a LOT of iPhone cases over the years. This is my 6th case fro the iPhone 5 and I finally found the ONE.

It fits the phone perfectly, provides screen protection without getting in the way of touching the screen.

My FAVORITE aspect of this case is the ROUNDED corners of the back. I have not liked the sharp edges of the back of the iPhone since the 4, this case softens this edge very nicely without adding too much size.

The "grippy" lines on the back are my only 1/100th of a negative. They feel fine in your hand, but can be just a bit too grippy into and out of a pocket.

Other than that this case is amazing. By far the best iPhone 5 case out there.

BTW: I also have the CandyShell without the grips, but I don't think it will ever get on the phone.

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingColor Name: White/Black Verified Purchase
After purchasing a new iPhone 5, I wanted to ensure it was adequately protected. The way I use my phone was a key concern for the type of case I needed. I am an early 30's, professional male who works in law, real estate, and construction. I am frequently away from my desk, and am constantly receiving emails and phone calls. A regular day involves me removing and replacing my phone from my front pants pocket A LOT. As a result, the thickness of the case was a primary factor.

I initially considered purchasing a heavy duty case like an Otterbox. However, after researching specifications, I concluded that a heavy duty case would be too thick for my needs. The thickness of an iPhone 5 is 7.6mm. Within the Otterbox line, the Defender is 16.18mm thick, the Commuter is 14.1mm thick, and the Prefix is 14.4mm thick. While these cases have a reputation of being the toughest on the market, I did not want to deal with the discomfort (and potential awkwardness) of a constant rectangular bulge in my pants.

Although prone to clumsiness, I do not regularly handle my phone in a way that requires extreme protection. I need to guard my phone from occasional falls off of my desk on to a hardwood floor, or out of my pocket from a seated position.

The CandyShell Grip is a well-constructed case that will provide me with the protection I need. It's made out of a combination of hard and soft plastic that feels strong. The case fits snug and has a raised edge on the front to provide moderate protection to the already durable Gorilla Glass 2. I like that the backside creates a buffer between surfaces and the camera bezel, which should keep my camera lens unscratched throughout the life of this phone.
