Review of Speck CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 Cases

Speck Inked14

For today’s review we will be looking at another iPhone 6/6S case from Speck. The CandyShell Inked is a way to differentiate your Apple phone from crowd by choosing from one of their 18 unique designs. Besides its unique outer shell appearance this case include all the features found in the standard CandyShell design including military-grade drop protection, raised bezel screen protection and a patented one-piece, multi-layer design.



The CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 case comes in a plastic box which showcases the case through a clear window. Inside the box the case rests on a removable cardboard tray. Like all genuine Speck products an anti-counterfeiting hologram and ID number is found on the back.

Inside the package is the CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 case and a warranty card. As previously mentioned there are 18 variations of this case and for this review we received the Color Dip Blue/River Blue version.

The case is composed of an outer shell of hard polycarbonate plastic. The inner part of the case uses a thermoplastic elastomer lining. This combination provides external protection and internal shock absorption for the CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 case.

On the back of the case we see the Speck name and logo along with the gradated design. The inner component is a powder blue design composed of divots and the Speck name and logo is found once again. A black rubber ring covers the opening for the camera.

The rubberized buttons are easy to press and all of the ports and controls are readily accessible. As a form of protection the CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 case should do an excellent job as the case is solidly constructed. A raised bezel on the front of the case protects the phone when placed face down on a flat surface.

As with previous Speck CandyShell cases I have reviewed the body and function of the case is consistent with past versions. Aesthetically it looks terrific while maintaining protection and functionality. My daughter has been using the case for the past few weeks and is happy with how it looks and how it stands out from her friend’s iPhone cases.

Of course with most teens the camera is the most important part of the iPhone and the CandyShell Inked iPhone 6s & iPhone 6 case does not interfere with the ability to take pictures.
