    I just recieved my dro concepts case today in the mail and figure i would post up some pics that i just took really quick. Overall great great case i am impressed with the quality of the case and the craftsmanship of it. Its well put together and fits the phone really well and has a soft backing to protect the phone. Great for docking and the new clip makes sure it doesnt just come apart. There are some spots on the case where it could have been clearcoated a bit better but they are just a few tiny pinholes and i will be sanding and buffing those out. I will be posting up a video review of the case here in a bit also, but here are the pics

    VIDEO REVIEW NOW UP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1JbhP414vo

    so the "clip" that holds the 2 halves together won't scratch the back of the iPhone? looks like a pretty slick case if i could ever have the balls to take mine out of the Defender...LOL..

    hey i posted this in the other thread.... what does the "unidirectional" version that they list on the site mean?

    unidrectional is just a piece of carbon fiber without the weave so imagine instead of a weave like most carbon fiber is just a flat sheet with the fibers going every which way haha


    and here is my video review, sorry for the crappy quality i had to use my camera

    and the clip doesnt touch the actual back of the phone its a bit higher

    I am wondering if that case collects a lot of fingerprints since it is shiny, i.e., clear coated.

    it kinda does if you have greasy hands but its no worse then the screen, also i noticed that just putting it back in my pocket wipes them off.

    Any diminished signal strength with this case on? I don't really know why it would, but I think I read a review by someone who had a carbon fiber case on and stated that it seemed to decrease there phone signal.

    I just ordered mine tonight. I ordered Fedex ground, how fast do you think I should get it? I'm in Texas, I think they're in Indiana.

    Has it broke yet?

    DRO Concepts case - yes, I had one, the clips broke and the replacement doesn't fit the phone.

    Has yours broke yet?
