Since you already have a case, just wait for the real backplate to come on sale.

I got those pictures too. If I was buying a replica I'd definitely go for that one as it comes with more accessories for around the same price, but in my opinion the fake backplate looks pretty bad. I've seen pictures of their backplate for the 4, and they really aren't making much of an effort at replicating the machined G10.

That's true. The backplate isn't very nice, but it's always nice to have it as an extra. You get what you pay for. I'm sure those things will be perfected in a couple of weeks .

Doubtful. Once they get it good enough for the price point, it'll stay that way. Look at the previous generation of fake Black Ops elite cases. They faked the backplate with cast rubber. It's good enough to fool people buying the case based on pictures on eBay, and to satisfy the kids at the flea market, and that's all they need.

The normal sector 5-case: (Their cases seem to have black corners, yay! )

The case doesn't looks like black ops to me, it's silver.

Quality of the fakes doesn't come close to the real ones, they aren't anodized their painted but this gives the finish a smoother to the touch feel but comes off on your fingers, honestly if you're OCD this wont come close to your expectations but of you want a case for more reasonable price and don't mind some flaws it's ok

Did the seller you purchased from also sell the black ops 2 accesory kit? I see that your ordered the standard sector 5 but also took pictures of the accessory kit

Not that I know of. Those are just the pictures she sent to me . I'll post more information as soon as I get the case.

Hi, came on here as not many people seem to have seen the fake cases in real life. I got one delivered the other day from aliexpress to UK (free delivery via dhl) sector 5 case was shipped early wednesday morning and received it friday midday.

They are quite good, got the case screen protector clear and black plastic parts that hold the case together and a carbon fibre rear protector but that is a bit dodgy as it was seriously sticky and seemed to screw up my wifi at home.

The case seems painted (black case) not anodized and there seems to be a tiny amount of wobble as in the phone moves back and forward in the case but only slightly (maybe the grooves for the phone are slightly wider maybe .5mm? anyway bit of cushioning seems to have fixed that but for the price quite good. The pictures they have seem to misleading but then again maybe all these sellers are just stealing them from all over and not of actual stock.

will add some pictures shortly as just sending them from wifes phone to me to upload.

Looks like crap to me....

Let me just say, the links are supposed to be darker than clear. Thats quite obvious, also the machining is just not the same quality. I think they are missing a lot of champfers that makes the original much more aesthetically pleasing.

Also, if they were going to make an attempt at typing the letters, they could have used the same font/italics. But gosh, I wish they would have just left all the typing out. Just my opinion. I want to buy the legit one, I have the money but I want to save my money for more important things. Was thinking of going the fake but looks like I won't be.

It fits perfect. So far the only headphones I can use are the apple ones, however. I like it. Its definitely better (for me) than paying an insane amount of money for a case.

Also, for the record, so far the paint on mine is holding up great. There are no chips in the paint anywhere on mine (the flash from the camera is what caused the edges to look pretty bad)

awesome thanks for the follow up

These look pretty good. for a quarter of the price hard to see any drastic issues with this case.

HI, sorry the photos are a bit rough took them quickly last night to put them on here. It also comes with black links but screws seemed tight so didn't want to risk ruining anything so left the clears ones in there.

Like the chap above I would have liked to got one from caseswill but at the time they never had any so took a chance with this one. For $37 dollars it is good case in its own right but comparing it to a real one it will always look cheap!

But please if anyone gets one and it comes with a carbon fibre back plate be warned it is so sticky I was scared to death peeling it back off and it messed up my wifi badly.

Is it possible to request for a picture of the earphone jack cutout? because there's not direct photo of it facefront. Thanks in advance.
