Looking for the ability to carry some cards or cash with you, but don’t want the bulk of a folio-style wallet case? Want to make sure your phone is protected by a case with mil-spec drop protection? Check out the CandyShell Card for iPhone SE! With a card slot on the back of the case that will accommodate up to three cards, the CandyShell Card will allow you to leave your wallet home at least some of the time and will ensure that your precious iPhone stays well protected in the process. The addition of the card compartment on the back of the case makes the CandyShell Card thicker than a regular CandyShell case, but it has a very pleasant hand feel and at least on a phone the size of the SE, this additional thickness is really not too noticeable.
- Meets or exceeds military drop test standards.
- Rubber lined card compartment fits up to three cards. Cards stay put very securely until pushed out via the convenient thumb slot.
- Nice high lip should provide good protection to your vulnerable iPhone screen.
- Generously sized port openings should fit many third party headphones and lightning cables.
- Rubber covered buttons are protective and easy to press, with nice clicky feedback.
- Glossy polycarbonate finish gives this case excellent pocketability: it will slide easily in and out of pockets and bags.
- Glossy polycarbonate finish, while attractive, scratches fairly easily.
- Case does not have much in the way of grip, although it is slightly grippier than a standard CandyShell case due to the card compartment on the back of the case.
- Not surprisingly, the card compartment does add some thickness to this case.
Conclusion: Overall, the CandyShell Card is a solid option if you are looking for card carrying ability in a mil-spec rated case. With an MSRP of $39.95, the CandyShell Card is available directly from Speck, although it is often available for less from other retailers. Many thanks to Speck for sending me out this sample to review.
