On my old iPhone, I used transparent front and back membranes to ward off scratches but still allow the phone to show through. However, the hard edges on the iPhone 5 dug into my palm and made it very uncomfortable to use. The iPhone 5 is also very light and the combination made be think the phone would get dropped a lot. I bought the PixelSkin specifically to make the iPhone 5 more comfortable to grip and protect it in the event of a fall.

The skin is extremely comfortable to hold and the color (Peacock Blue) is very vibrant. Even though it's a rubberized case, it has a fresh modern look to it. The front is raised just a hair above the front screen so it should protect even if it were dropped on its face. And it makes it safer to put the phone face-down without having to worry about scratching.

Overall I'm pleased with the purchase from a look and grip standpoint. However, the skin is pretty loose. It would be easy for dirt, grit, etc. to work it's way between the back of the phone and the cover where it could then leave scratches or mar the phone itself. I also find it can easily start to detach when trying to pull it out from a pocket or my purse.

Pros: Color, grip.
Cons: Loose fit.

This is a nice "grippy" case, exactly what I was looking for and at a reasonable price. It fits my iPhone 5 perfectly and all functions work as they should. Also the bottom cut out for the Lightning connector is large enough so the case doesn't interfere with the plug. This was a problem with another case I tried.
It does add some thickness to the phone but since I can be a bit clumsy the extra heft was welcome. Also the way the texture and grippiness completely covers all sides gives the phone a very nice feel.
I have an Arduro screen protector and the case does not catch the edges of it at all.

I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it to a friend.

I loved my PixelSkin for my iPhone 3GS - It was the best protection ever. When I got my iPhone 5 I immediately purchased the same version for this phone. Unfortunately, the "fit" of the cover is not nearly as tight as the one for the 3GS. It almost feels as if the phone will easily slip out of the cover. Also, the rubber is not nearly as "grippy" as the older versions. It's a little slicker than my two older versions. Still my favorite so far for a good cover.

I really like the look and feel of this case. Although I was worried about several reviews that mentioned the case does not fit well, I ordered it anyway. When it first arrived, I was delighted and thought, "those silly reviewers on Amazon must be trying to fit this on an iPhone4 or something, it fits great." Over time, however, the rubber case does stretch and get progressively looser and looser. After two months or so now, I am shopping for a replacement.

I had a speck cover before with the hard rubber style and it was great. I had it for years and the phone held up when it was hit or dropped. When I got my new phone I immediately went to order this one. I saw some of the reviews that the case was loose, but I thought these were just people who were picky. But I have to say, this case is very loose. The case can just be peeled off. Nothing really holds in locked into place. I don't think I'm going to keep this very long. I would not recommend any buy this.

I don't like hard cases but silicone can be very flimsy. This case is the best of both worlds. Great texture for grip and thick enough to provide cushion when my phone occasionally finds the ground.

This cover was fine for the first couple weeks, but now it's stretched out and loose! The phone falls right out! I would recommend the Speck TPU plastic case. I used it with my iPhone 4 and it worked great. This silicone case is a waste of money. It also picks up a lot of lint. For the price, I expected better quality from Speck.

I had a pixelskin case for my old iPhone 3GS and LOVED it! It was very durable and fit so nicely. It lasted for years! I just upgraded to the iPhone 5 and wanted to get the same case. Unfortunately, this case does not fit nearly as well and I'm actually worried about the phone slipping right out of the case, so I'm going to have to return it. They redesigned this case and it just doesn't have as much coverage and it is ill-fitting. I'm bummed because this color was really nice and I really loved the old version. I'm gonna have to recommend against this one.

I wrote a glowing review of this product but I have to make an add on to that review. There's a major issue. The front of the the case, aka the front lip, grips neither far enough onto the front of the phone, not tight enough and the case ends up slipping off easily. The front lip just basically sits right on the edge of the phone. I guess they reduced how far it reaches so that (Im guessing) when you're typing in landscape mode your fingers don't hit the case accidentally when trying to tap the space bar, however this added convenience is too big a price to pay if the case constantly slips off. Especially when taking the phone out of my pocket, the corners of the case are constantly coming off. I'm not sure but I'm thinking of returning mine. The only recommendation I can make to speck is to make the front lip of the top and bottom, where the home button and ear piece are, have the case come further onto the phone there as your finger never goes there and nothing is being impeded. This would stop the case from slipping off and give it a better hold on the phone.
