    Thinking of getting this case but Ive read reports of the colour chipping and all after a few months. Any of you guys experience the same thing? Any other issues you faced or still facing? Just want to be sure before dropping the cash for a premium case. Cheers.

    I got mine from TekCases and it killed my reception. Quite bogus.

    I got the Jewel Beetle one. Gorgeous but I can't use my phone.

    I even wrapped the phone completely in packing tape to make sure it wasn't shorting on the antenna. No dice.

    You both purchased fake ones that explains it. The two Dracos I was given directly by Draco themselves have only reduced my signal by one bar only which is more than acceptable. The fake ones use a different metal that blocks reception.

    I'd like to order one myself but chipping issues will be a killer for a premium case.

    with all the fakes being sold, it makes one wonder if the chipping issue is with the real ones or only the fakes..

    Fakes most likely. Had my original Matte Draco for
    Months now, still looks new.

    Does anyone here has the gray one. I'm debating between black or gray.

    From what I can tell, the original draco IV fits the 4S.

    I'm planning on getting a white 4's but wondering if white will look better with a Draco IV gray or black case. What do you think guys.

    It's a matter of opinion really. I personally would like a white phone in a white case. More subtle. More elegant. Not too loud. But if you want the attention then get the black. It screams for attention :eek:
