    If I could afford it, I'd definitely get the Sector 5!

    Dat price.... If i can afford out I'm definitely going with the gold solace au case. This thing would look so sick with my gold 5s! I wish it was in the $1-70 range though.

    Dock looks great.. cases look gaudy. Too heavy and clunky. Plus with all of that gold, it drowns out the white on the phone. But the dock would look good with it. All in all, pricey as well. But the dock might be worth it.

    Looks sick, but I will never a buy a $100+ phone "case". I do feel sorry for people who bought the regular ones for their gold phone only to have these come out.

    Those are some of the most obnoxious and ugly cases Ive seen.
    Just proves you can't buy class.

    I thought the same about the gold/champagne iPhone 5S...but the demand for it is insane! Maybe Element is filling the need?

    Steve Jobs once said (something like this)..."people do not know what they want until it is presented to them"

    He complimented the product, and stated a personal opinion affecting only himself.

    What's the problem again? It shouldn't affect you at all.

    Some people can't seem themselves justifying $100+ on a case alone, but if money wasn't a problem, they'd probably think otherwise

    "I pitty the fool that messes with my case"

    Wouldn't buy it but if I did... I'd wait for aliexpress to put on out.

    Sad thing is... Money isn't the problem. I actually like the way 3 of those cases look but paying $100+ on a phone case is silly.

    ----------

    U mad bro? How about you rip the guys that are actually ripping the case. I said it looks nice but I would never pay $100 for a case. It seems like you're just looking to get yourself into a forum argument. GL with that.

    These cases are too over the top and do not look great in real life. (IMO)
    I almost bought the sector 5 before but it's just too loud and not subtle enough for my tastes.

    whoa...nice!

    that looks sick! :cool: how's it feel in hand? seriously considering an all-black sector 5 purchase for my space gray after Christmas.

    would you post some more macro (close up) pics? also, how's the fit...any "play" between the case and the phone?

    again, sick case!

    I lost all patience for the diminished reception when using these bumpers.

    Ditto to that, this case really destroys the elegant form factor of the phone.

    Just like some of those rich Chinese that put GT wings on their BMWs...:p

    where is your data to prove this? There are hundreds if not thousands of posts that verify the Sector5 case does not affect signal. You must've used all metal bumpers which will affect signal for sure.

    I am in complete agreement with this post. Some people must assume all aluminum bumpers cause signal issues. Maybe people want to put down Element because of price. Significant signal degradation isn't a problem.
