1.0 out of 5 stars Case is not the color pictured, and not durable, April 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Speck SPK-A0588 Candyshell Glossy Case for iPhone 4S/4 - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - White/Pink (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this case about 2 months ago, and when I received it I was very disappointed to see that the color pink wasn't the deep, hot pink/raspberry pictured, but an unexciting baby pink instead. It looked NOTHING like the picture, I don't think it's a case of my computer screen showing the color wrong, I think the item pictured is different. The reason I say this is because I ordered the other Speck candyshell Flip Case case in the same color, and that one was a perfect match with the picture.

I decided to just deal with it, and used the case for a few weeks, but I noticed something else that was sort of weird. The rubberized, colored part (the pink) was made of a VERY soft silicone-type material; so soft, in fact, that I accidentally sliced it with my fingernail a couple places, and eventually noticed pieces peeling off. To top it off, the pink got discolored very quickly; add that to the peeling and slicing issue, and the whole thing just looked like a mess.

Weirdly, the same case in the Flip version? Totally different, very durable rubberized border that doesn't seem to discolor so easily (though that may just be because the pink is so much darker to begin with). If you're looking at this case, I highly recommend buying in person to make sure of what you're getting, or getting the flip version instead.
