Speck Cases – Review
Have you bought a new phone recently? Did it cost you a small fortune? Are you handling like you would handle a baby?
If you can answer all three of these questions then I would recommend that you read this article as I like you have just bought a new phone and like you, I am treating it with kids gloves and I am paranoid that it is going to get damaged. Now, normally I would slap a skin on the back of it like the ones I recently tested in my XtremeSkins review and call it a day. But the new phone I bought is not a normal phone it is the Galaxy S21 Ultra and I spent nearly a months wages on this thing! So it decided from as soon as I placed the order I need a rugged hardcore case for it.
Well thankfully the guys from Speck have also been drinking from the same cool-aid as me and they have gone and made a rugged hardcore case for the S21 Ultra and they where kind enough to send it to me alongside a couple of other ones to review They were also nice enough to send me some of the Note 10 Plus cases as that was my old phone, which is being passed down through the family.

They all have a raised bezel meaning that when you lay the phone down on the screen it is not actually resting on the screen but the edge of the case. This will help from some of the unwanted scuffs that come from daily use especially when you are using the gesture-based flip to silence feature on the Samsung (and some other Android Devices). the last major feature is the Full two-layer shock protection which designed to help absorb the impact of dropping your phone from the previously mentioned 4m or 13ft. These are features shared by all the cases and are essentially Speck’s hallmark features for most of their phone cases. It all sounds pretty good but fancy specs are all okay however with a case it is more about how it feels when you use it on the phones.
Well, I am delighted to tell you that when they are on the phones, these case feel excellent and in the case of the transparent cases from the Stay Clear and the Perfect Mist and Perfect Clear ranges, they are clear and clean allowing you to see the gorgeous design elements of your phone through the case. In fact, Speck are so confident about the UV and Oil resistant materials it uses in there case’s that they offer a Clear Guarantee! This guarantees that the case will not yellow over the lifetime of your phone. On the Presidio Grip And Grip 2 however, these...
