Today we’re going to review the Speck MightyShell with Faceplate. This is one of Specks tougher cases and is a way better case than the Candyshell but its really not that “Mighty”.

The best thing about this case is the actual Faceplate. This is one of the best screen protectors that we have ever used on an iPhone. The MightyShell with faceplate is fairly slim and feels solid and for the most part, will protect your iPhone from daily accidental drops. Most of the time.

Based on our time with the case we gave it a score 4.2 Eh’s out of 5 but there’s a big caveat with this score . At this score, this slimmer tough case is one of our higher rated cases, beating out Specks own Candyshell and is comparable to the Incipio DualPro and Urban Armor Gear.

In terms of design the Speck Mightyshell is decently sized. Its not as thin as other though cases such as the Thule Atmos X3 and will add a bit of bulk to your iPhone. With that being said, the Mightyshell does feel very well built and we’re impressed with the back of the case as it has a matte look which doesn’t attract scratches like the back of the regular Candyshell.

In terms of protection, despite being marketed as a tough case, with words like 2X military grade protective design and 360 degree protection, we feel that this case doesn’t provide anymore protection than a Griffin Survivor Slim or Incipio Dual Pro. It sounds great on paper but if you really want to know how high you can actually drop it, you can’t. Clicking on the image will do nothing but give you carpal tunnel syndrome. And this is the big caveat. This case didn’t really protect our iPhone 6 Plus drops.

We dropped our MightyShell from 6 ft and ended with the iPhone coming apart.

Now, with all that aside, the faceplate portion of the MightyShell is really awesome but just as a headsup, not all Faceplates are the same. The one for our iPhone 6 is slightly different and the small difference really lessens the awesomeness.

According to Speck, the screen protector offers 2X shatter protection and has 4 layers of awesome stuff. From what I can tell you, our screen didn’t break at 18 inches so this screen protector will do a decent job of keeping your iPhone safe. But this isn’t the awesomeness, its the functionality of your iPhone under this screen protector that makes a world of difference.

The screen protector is sticky which means there are no gaps between your finger and screen protector so your iPhone’s screen sensitivity is maintained. The notch at the bottom, above the Touch ID allows you to easily access your swipe menus and because the screen protector is sticky, you’re not going to have dusting problems where dust collects around the touch ID sensor. You’ll notice that the iPhone 6 Faceplate that we have doesn’t have this notch.

In terms of viewability, this is one of the best screen protectors that we’ve used. The clarity of your iPhone’s HD screen is maintained and there is no additional glare or reflections. I really hope that Speck goes and license this screen protector technology out because its just so good.

In terms of actually getting to your iPhone, access to the buttons is fairly easy, you have a small cutout for the mute switch and you’re able to use slightly larger than average cables. We do have to mention that the case does feel a little slicker as the back is fairly smooth so there’s not much to hold onto when using your iPhone with one hand. The edges of the case are a bit rubbery but the MightyShell doesn’t come close to the handling that the Speck CandyShell Grip provides.

So that’s all I got for the Speck MightyShell, again, we gave it a score of 4.2 Eh’s out of 5. This is a better than average iPhone case but it is a little pricier at $60 dollars per case. If you’re looking for something that’s actually tough, maybe consider spending and extra 20-30 dollars and get a case that will actually protect your iPhone like the LifeProof Nuud.
