    Speck hands down... I like the Tech21 better because it adds less bulk and I like the orange on the sides but there is no way the screen and especially the camera on back and bottom of the phone is protected as well as the Speck Candyshell. It's a little flimsy on the bottom.

    If it's protection you want, go with Speck. If it's style, I like Tech21 but they're both great depending on what you like.

  • Tech21 in my opinion...

  • I purchased both, first a Speck Candyshell Black glossy case. The case was horribly scratched within 4 days. I'm sure it offered great protection, but no way do you shell out $35 for something that is going to look like garbage in a matter of days. Went to Apple and picked up the Tech21 Impact Mesh Smoke and to me is by far a better case, cosmetically there is no match. I'm sure both cases offer great protection however.
