    The thing is I'm not sure of the materials used and I doubt it's real gg. Is the taktik aluminum? Because seller said these are not

    You can go taobao to look up the chinese reviews on these replicas.

    Yea it worked on my laptop, I was on my ipad before. The reviews seem mixed, the biggest gripes being the screen being insensitive and quality control problems. Hmm

    Turns out that taktik canceled their alloy case due to reception issues and is now using the same polymer material that these replicas are using. Starting to think these replicas might just be leaked lunatik cases because they are being manufactured in china as well.

    Edit: I bit. I'll post pictures and initial impressions when I get it.

    I'll pm ya when I get it, but its probably going to be a couple weeks. Th decision was easier when I found out taktik wasn't using alloy.

    It's amazing that you can purchase a fake case when the real Taktik case is not even out yet. :eek:

    Damn this looks tempting. The sheer bulk of the case is ridiculous imo, but it looks so cool..

    Thickness wise it's smaller than the defender. I dig the design though, it looks like something out of halo lol

    Yes it has a gorilla glass on it!! I'm telling you guys this thing is legit! Look on eBay and buy one from the seller iphonecases2011 ships from Hong Kong but took like 10 days if that to get to me!! I was going to order the aluminum one good thing I didn't because I would of been mad if it affected my reception like my old aluminum case!! But overall I'm pleased!!
