WOW.. wouldn't that mean you would have 3?.. I have the white ip5 and have the silver and i really like the way it flows. I also have the silver aluminum spigen button. Personally i love everything about the case and that i have yet to see anyone else who has one besides the people on this forum.

Looking at the finish of the black ops edition in the pictures it looks like it may actually be different then the regular black edition, more matte color and not satiny like the say the regular one is.

I've been concerned about the white phone with silver because of the negative revues. Hearing that you like it gives me hope. I generally like a color that says metal, not plastic. That's why I was hopeful about silver. As far as ordering Three, I'm a bit of a nut about finding the perfect (in my opinion) Case. Typically one that doesn't look or feel cheap in keeping with the phone itself. It also has to let the phone show while protecting it. I'm not rich but my priorities go to good design, usually in tech gadgets.

I'll probably end up with two. I'll find a way to sell one or not get chrome.

I liked your phone with the silver case and white with spigen aluminum button if you're the one that posted the photos of it, looked really good.

I am a fan of the previous design. Dont know why, but the sector looks bulky. Especially on the edges.

I also think the color of the black ops is not plain black, but rather more matte. Reminds me the look of my old "extreme metals" AR15-V case (s/n 00673 c) which still own but stop using on my old Iphone 4 due to the signal loss (later upgraded to a blue COMP case, used on the Iphone 4 and 4S)

If you meant elevation dock, I'm told, yes, it does fit.

Quick question:

For those whose fingers resemble fat sausages, how difficult is it to manipulate the ringer mute toggle?

I did mean elevation. Thank you. I have heard there is a problem with the lightning cable not staying seated in the dock and pulling through when removing the phone. Apparently the screw holding the cable isn't tight enough. Guess I need to wait until they work all the bugs out.

I was just being conservative in my estimate.

But yes they use donkeys.

Their international shipping is even more if it makes you feel better lol.

Mine was part of the 26th batch but still says processing... Hopefully it'll ship soon.

I've got my toast walnut back, which is awesome, and sticker boy extreme fit wraps all ready and waiting.

Yea, but with unreliable or non-existent tracking info and poor protection in case my order gets lost or damaged. I don't know about you, but I'd rather pay a little more for better shipping when I'm dropping that much for a case...

Both those services have included tracking I use them when I sell on eBay their really reliable and never damaged an item, but in reality FedEx ground costs around 6 dollars for an item that size.

I sent a PM to ElementCase about difference between Sector Black Ops vs SE Black

A:

The Sector 5 Black Ops is a Type 3 anodizing. That means that the coating is a little thicker and more abrasion resistant, but it's not really something that you'd be able to tell just by holding it. The Sector 5 SE is Type 2 anodizing. Since both are the matte Flux Finish, they look pretty much the same, but if they were not matte finish, you would probably be able to see more grain in the Type 2 SE finish than the Type 3 Black Ops.
