    Anyone order or actually receive one of these cases yet? They look a lot like the Element Vapor cases but the company states they are ready for order and shipping now!

    After waiting 2 months to even be allowed to pre order a vapor case, I am leaning toward one of these.

    Anyone else?

    We will see this case has similar negative affect upon the signal as the vapor 4 does!?

    No way I'm going to trade in signal strength for good looks;-)

    Thanks
    Some close up shots and signal strength/gps tests would be great.
    FYI according an email from their sales department there only 3days for return/refunds !!!!

    This company had been much more responsive than vapor in emails. They said the case I ordered would shop today, no email with any tracking or shipping notice though.

    Looks good, cheaper than Element case, but basically the exact same thing.

    I like the brushed/brushed full-aluminum look. But their website seems shoddy and I'm not sure if I trust giving credit card info to the company, lol.

    Anyone up for trying this? ;)

    I have been testing the case for Atomic and I have two of them I have been working with to make sure that everything is ok with them before they really start pushing them out. I can assure you that they are very good cases, they are legit and the numbers are great. When Ryan from Atomic gives me the ok I will post pictures of my db's readings and everything else. People that have used the Vapor will ***** when they see the number of db's I am losing. I can't give to much away, but the case accepts aftermarket charger cords and the gps, will never mind. I will fill everyone in and post my numbers and pictures to back up my claims when Ryan says it's ok for me to. It blows the Vapor away!!

    Only one way, now, to gain any credibility with the public for those making aluminum cases that wrap around the antenna:

    send them to geardiary/Larry G. for the same testing/evaluation they did on the Vapor 4.

    Otherwise, it's just another guy on an internet forum selling Faraday cages.

    Because I was asked to correct and test somethings on the cases and I did not purchase them, they were giving to me so I don't feel that I have the right to just give away information. Like I said, probably tomorrow when he says its ok. I will post up my pics. I have no reason to lie or make up anything about these cases. I am not making a dime out of this deal. I was just asked to help and I did and the cases are working great and they look great also. That's all I am saying as of right now.

    wow looks exactly like the vapor case.

    I really wish the case was more symmetrical looking. That was the one thing holding me back from getting the vapor case.

    Here is my review of both of my Atomic Cases. I received them both today and they are beautiful pieces. They fit great, the cutout at the bottom is larger to accept bigger cords. It may even dock, I don't have one so I am not forsure. I field tested my phone naked 3 times before putting on either case and also speed tested it with 3G and my WIFI. Then I put on the first case which fit great, then field tested it not expecting the results it yielded. My phone naked with my microcell in my house gets between -55 db's and -57db's, my 3g speed is horrible from my microcell so I never actally use it so I am not sure what speeds are accurate for it. But they were between 775 down and 58 up. I know, terrible and that's why I use my wifi. My wifi speeds were all in the 2650 range down and 850 up. My internet speed in only 3000 down and 1000 up. So then I added the first of two cases and my results were as 3g speed was between 796 down and 56 up. My wifi speeds and my db's are shown in the pictures. So, after all that I went on a drive and tested the gps and it was spot on with both case. So I have owned the vapor and now the Atomic and the Vapor just got owned!! Everyone on here says pics or it didn't happen, here are your pics! Pictures don't lie so here they are. What you are seeing on the edge between the phone and the screen is invisibleshield that I started taking off today and then my cases showed up and I started in on the cases, that and my screen protector also is starting to come up.

    Looks like it needs some love.

    Some of it is my screen protector and some is that cheap invisibleshield. No my phone is perfect, I just need to take the invisibleshield off.
