    e13ctron aluminum case looks attractive, I like the style of the e13ctron but can’t afford it, $80 bucks is huge at the very moment, so I decided to look for it at some China based online store, you know they are always more cheaper than ebay. According to the pictures from their website, it really looks awesome, but I am worry since nowadays you can’t believe the images until you get the items in hands and see it with your own eyeballs, especially for a knockoff ones.

    After I got it, I’d like to say it really doesn’t let me down. Just like the original ones it comes with top and bottom cases, hex screws and plastic insert. I installed it following the tutorial, really doesn’t encounter any trouble.

    Most of the time I got 5 signal bars, sometimes 3-4, and the GPRS works flawlessly, it can locate my location with no problem. So for $23 bucks I came out winning and im extremely satisfied with this purchase. Anyone willing to try one out should, but again i live in NYC and always get great signal. I got mine from slickgate.com

    Here are some pictures:

    Dont like the solid colors or their choice of colors... no mix and match front and back huh? Construction looks solid. Does it have the plastic insert? Why cant the chinese copy some nice sports cars and sell em? Id be all over dat!

    How in the world do you pick your color? No matter what I do it sticks style "A" in my shopping cart

    Only Solid colors is a bit of a letdown. I'm a little confused about the description though. On the site it lists it as "Fit for the AT&T (CDMA) iPhone 4" I am assuming they meant only the GSM version? Judging from the silent toggle cutout, it does not appear it will work with the CDMA version of the iPhone 4.

    Would it annoy you enough to want to pay $100+ for a "real" one? :eek:

    I wouldn't buy either, infact I would go as far as to say nearly all the aluminium bumpers looks cheap and tacky to me.

    $65 is still far too much to pay for a cell phone case, IMO

    I doubt it because the mute switch is in a slightly different place on the Verizon phones. It wouldn't line up.
