    Found this over on YankoDesign.com
    for the price ($50)I figured it's worth the purchase
    ordering it in silver

    as much as I love my sector 5 by Element the creator Andrea Ponti did a few things with her design that are slightly more practical for day to day usage...
    the volume buttons section looks more accessible and the charger section looks easier for a car charger
    just have to hope it doesn't create the dreaded Draco Faraday Cage LTE killer mode

    Like the design but I have a few problems. It looks like this will affect signal. And I don't like how there isn't a power button and wish there were volume ones. Decent price though

    What all of these aluminum cases need is a silicone liner like Spigen's SGP Hybrid EX Slim so that they don't scratch the bezel.

    What aluminum bumpers do scratch the bezel? My Sector 5 doesn't. And the Draco don't.

    agreed the Draco and the Element never scratched the bezel

    Make sure you let us know if the case changes the signal strength at all. If it doesn't, I'll probably end up ordering one.

    Uninterrupted metal: it's going to affect the signal. There's really just no way around it.

    yeah I bought the Draco 5 and sent it back due to LTE loss
    currently own the Sector 5
    loved them both personally I would've stuck with the Draco if it didnt kill the LTE, but the sector 5 has grown on me more and more

    +1 creates a full circuit causing an artificial death grip, no way around it unless there's a type of break
