    Vote on the poll which is the best overall aluminum case for the iPhone 4. I've gathered up all of the "popular" ones for everyone to see.

    Does this poll just get lost if no one replies? I guess it needs a bump to be seen.

    The problem with polls is people stop seeing them because they don't bump when people respond.

    i would like to see a meaningful result. It tells way more than one or two opinions in a thread.

    Element Vapor Pro - tops for me.

    Honorable Mention: E13ctron hybrid.

    I should have mentioned mine is Element Pro Spectra. I've had GPS issues with the bare phone. The case hasn't made that worse.

    I came very close to choosing the E13ctron. It was a race Spectra vs Hybrid E13ctron, Spectra came out first.

    E13ctron is right behind it!

    Oh, and I really love the Apex Armor G3 by the way!

    I have a few in my case drawer. . .
    e13ctron
    e13ctron hybrid
    Vapor Pro Spectra (all silver)
    (and a few non metallic cases)

    I can't decide, so I rotate off and on.

    Of these, IMHO . . .
    Best feel: VPS
    Least effect on phone signal: VPS, with e13ctron hybrid close behind
    Lease effect on GPS: ec13tron hybrid.

    The GPS effect is the most dramatic to me. I checked both hybrids while driving various roads. e13ctron hybrid did not seem to have any effect, while the VPS could have a drastic effect--sometime on, sometimes WAY off. Since I only need GPS when I travel, it's not a problem to changes cases off and on. Just need to remember the wrench!
