    I like the uniform look versus the Element Case.

    Alright everyone. Shameless plug coming. This case is made by a friend's company (I just found out). He has corrected the issue of reception and learned his lesson from the Element Vapor fiasco. He also has a built in non conductive material that helps the reception.

    Everything is done and he will have a full retail package coming soon.

    Therere screws still except in this case they go in vertically locking in the bottom half to the top half. Kinda like an aluminum slider case in bumper form.

    Those aren't renders either. I was mistaken earlier.

    Also its designed to not need a external power button.

    Yes sir! I'll post some as soon as he sends me the case. I'd rather post pics or the real thing on a real iPhone to really do it justice.

    Count me in! Those look beautiful and thought out more in design compared to the Vapor case, ex: pocket hole screws :)

    Yes it will be $79 for the case itself. He also has back plates and is stating the quality and fit is better than other, but just to be fair on that judgement, I'll wait till I post pics. I believe case and back plate will be $99. He is well aware of the customer service hassles that ElementCase faced and is gonna try hard to provide a better experience.

    I'm liking the design of this, no weird "grip" like the Vapor and others like it. What about screen protectors, any interference?

    I'm definitely interested, please keep us posted.

    Seriously, unless you have tiny ass fingers your never going to reach the power button, I don't care how then the case is. Have him post up some actual db numbers and then we will see if he learned anything from element. I have been testing the Atomic case and I will actually post pictures of my db readings because people wont believe the numbers when Ryan at Atomic gives me the ok to, they are that good. And the gps works also and they are beautiful cases. Lets see those numbers!!

    I hope the actual logo is much smaller. The current one is so big and ugly.

    I think the price is a bit steep considering others like it have a built in home button and yours does not, and they are the same price. Like the idea but price is a bit high IMHO. I have done cnc of Aluminum for Automag parts, so I know the cost of input and set up. If you lower the price $20 you could still pull in a nice profit with the increase I think you would get in sales. Just an opinion.... you know what they say about those ;)

    Look great though, like them a lot better than other models I have seen... including the Vapor clone:D
