Speck CandyShell Review

Mmm, delicious candy. The vibrant colors of these cases sent us into a sugar fiending frenzy. Though the cases might be too neon for some tastes, they are definitely the kind of protective covering your average tween could use when it comes to keeping that expensive piece of hardware perfectly intact. The case also includes a rubber lining that cushions the iPhone's glass backing, though that logo on the back is a little large for our tastes.

iSkin Solo Review

This translucent case brings us back to the days of the first iMac's Bondi blue shell, though the iPhone 4's black backing will mute the color a bit (that is, unless you're one of the lucky few sporting a white one). We also liked the flexibility of this polymer case, and the fact that it was easy to put on. It also gives the iPhone a bit of a grip, so if you're holding a ton of things in one hand, you'll still have a hold on your device. However, there were times when we couldn't tell if we were hitting the volume button or not because of the plastic overlay.
