    I see they launched the preorder for the Leverage for the iPhone 5 been waiting a long time for one. Doesn't Ship till January but when Chinese New Year coming that isn't to bad.

    My only worry is that the first fun will not be upto snuff. Anyone else get one?

    Just ordered, but the preorder page is weird. There are selection buttons but no labels for color and the lever. I just picked the left ones hoping they were black and matte and Emailed support.

    Love their cases, even if they are overpriced.

    I'm considering this one. It looks pretty nice. And the price isn't too bad.

    I am playing a wait-and-see on this one. I had a Leverage for the iPhone 4 and it was pretty nice. I want to see how thick this case is. The Caze thin edge matte I have is pretty darn sweet and feels great in the hand and pretty much on par with the material used on the leverage. It's hard to tell how thick this case is with the newer iPhone 5. If the case is indeed thinner than the 4s version, that would mean the metal clasp would need to be thinner as well. Can't tell from the Pre rendered images and video in the site.

    This is pretty nice. And, as mentioned earlier, not too pricy.

    Anyone know how they protect the inside of the phone from scuffs?

    The first 4/S cases had a problem wight he inside of the clasp scratching the top of the phone. They solved the problem by shipping cases with a small skin strip that would prevent the clasp from making direct contact with the metal antenna. Not sure if they will do the same with the 5 version, but I would assume they would. Aside from the top, there is no other protection. After several months using the case in the 4s, I had no issues.

    Hmmm...might cancel my Pre-Order. If this pic is accurate, the 5 version of the case is the same thickness as the 4/S. I really enjoy the slimness of the 5 even with the Caze on. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354238090.836542.jpg

    I doubt the 5 is going to be the same thickness as the 4s. Look closely at the pics,especially the clasp on top,the 5 looked thinner.

    Looks like the clasp is redesigned. The thickness of the case hasn't changed according to that pic.

    Well anyway I already placed a preorder for it. I don't think it'll be as thick as a 4s but keeping my finger cross.:)

    Ordered as well. The graftconcept Facebook page said it isn't going to be as thick as 4s.. It just doesn't make sense If it did lol

    Canceled my order. I'll wait to see it either live or on reviews. The Caze will keep me happy for now being as thin as it is.

    It comes with a free cardholder backplate too (for the first 2,000 pre-orders though).

    I love when people create a thread without providing a picture or link to the item they are talking about. Like I know what a Graft Leverage is.

    I had the leverage for my 4S, and I loved it. I thought about getting it for the 5 as well (especially since I have a 50% off coupon), but I'm not sure I will, as I really like my Elago Outfit, and I'm not sure if I want to have the same case twice in a row. I'm sure I'll get another case when I get bored of the Elago. We'll see what strikes my fancy then. I loved my leverage, though. Great case. I used it both with and without the backplate, and loved that it stays the same thickness as a bumper or full case.

    The one on our right is clearly thicker.... maybe an eye exam at a qualified optician is in order?

    Doesn't look bad but I'm not sure about the mute switch.

    I went ahead and placed a pre-order. I use a glass screen protector and I know the first one caused issues that's why I never picked on up. Maybe this one won't have issues? Hope not because I like my glass screen protector way more than this case.

    I know right! Thanks phoneX for providing the link. Of course it wouldn't of been that hard to find but I'm lazy.

    Regardless, the thickness is not what I was expecting for the iphone 5 version. The two cases side by side look pretty close and the extra thickness in the new 5 version is there (as in the previous gen) to accommodate the slide-in back plates.

    Supposedly they have started shipping these out to preorders this last weekend. I got an email from Amazon saying that I was charged. Will see when it actually ships and I hope it will be a good product.

    Only bad thing is that their new credit card backplate is not done yet and so they will be shipping those out at a later date to those who preordered.

    The Backplate does look good tho! I am excited about seeing it. Here is a picture that they sent me (I posted this on another post)

    Mine shipped out yesterday. Hopefully I will have it by the end of the week. I will take photos and give thoughts once I get it and check it out for those interested.

    How do you know it actually shipped? Did you get an email saying so with a tracking number or did they (Amazon) simply charge your credit card finally? I did get see a charge go through on Sunday but no follow up or emails other than that.
