Belkin’s Grip Candy Sheer is a terrifically minimalist case that doesn’t sacrifice on quality. The Grip Candy Sheer is made of a flexible, easy-to-grip TPU material that is lightweight, yet tough.
The Belkin Grip Candy Sheer offers a slim and form-fitting design for the iPhone 5, while still providing ample protection from scratches and minor drops. Proper display shielding is a quality that is often neglected in more minimalist iPhone cases. Fortunately, the front of the case extends just enough to protect the iPhone 5′s display if dropped. Furthermore, the Belkin Grip Candy Sheer indeed offers a good grip. This is thanks to its soft finish which feels really, really nice to grip in your hand.
The case’s color is transparent enough to still see the Apple logo showing through on the iPhone 5′s back side. Meanwhile, running along the bottom edge of the case, the Belkin logo can be found.
But don’t let Belkin’s Grip Candy Sheer case’s transparent looks fool you, this is a high quality case, and not one of those plasticy transparent cases you’ll find else where. And unlike so many other cases, the Grip Candy Sheer doesn’t add much heft at all to the skinny iPhone 5. The Grip Candy Sheer iPhone 5 is available in a choice of 5 two-tone color schemes, including Gravel / Reflection (cyan), Glow / Blacktop (black), Hazard / blacktop, fountain blue / purple lighting, and gravel / blacktop. The cases retail for $24.95 each.
