    So, I'm tired of using huge cases or thin cases that don't protect my iP4S.

    Vapor Pro: I am considering buying a black ops edition but I'm afraid of GPS reception since I use it all the time.

    SGP Hybrid: is it true that the plastic part may break after some time of usage?

    Thanks in advance, dear iP4(S) users :) :) :)

    I have no experience with the SGP but I figure I'll offer my input on the Vapor cases:

    I don't have a black ops, but I do have a Vapor Comp. All the vapor cases are very similar so I figure I'd give my input -

    I dropped my iP4S yesterday for the first time. Face down. On the concrete garage floor. I don't keep my garage clean, either, so there are tons of pebbles, dust, you name it. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it happen, but the Vapor Comp protected my phone like a champ... this was a pretty forceful drop from at least 5 feet above ground. The case got an extremely minor scratch on one corner but it's barely noticeable. I can't believe it protected it so damn well!

    Just thought I'd throw that out there. I bought the case more for looks and possible minor-drops onto carpet or whatever, because I don't normally drop my phone - but this thing protected it well.

    That was funny ehehe! :p I understand you! Can you believe I dreamed that my phone was stolen? I woke up very sad :( But there it was, on my table, smiling to me ahaha!

    Well, I'm almost 30 and I dont understand too much about cases, thats why I asked.

    Yeah, protection is what I'm looking for. I dont think SGP Neo Hybrid would survive in 2 or 3 falls. The plastic thing looks so fragile - and its so tight that the tension might brake it.

    Anyway, thanks for the shared info but I still have this doubt about the reception - mainly the GPS because I know the cell phone and 3G signals are not affected at all.

    Please post in the market section as we don't need to see the same posts in different threads. Can we get this post and the same post in the Element Vapor Pro thread removed?

    Why don't you buy a SGP neo hybrid in first?

    It's not very expensive, and you could try the vapor after?

    This case are not at the same price..

    Because I cant buy a case just to try! Dont have enough money to try things ehehe - I cant return them in my country.
    Thats why I came here to ask before I spend money!
    I'm just afraid that the Neo Hybrid will break after sometime, mainly the thin plastic above and below the dock connector!

    Hum ok..
    If i were you i bought the neo hybrid : you get a good case, and also a good protection's screen.
    You get more choice and no need to pay a lot..
    Also with few money : you get a good case in quality/price.

    If you want to buy a vapor : it's not the same price, and invite you to buy à original only of course..
    But, if you are not happy to get this case : probably, it's not the good case for you?

    You get a black or white iPhone?

    I have a black iP4S - my first iPhone.
    My plan is to buy a fake vapor case! Is it that bad?
    I'm really concerned about the GPS reception.

    You get a black iPhone, also you a great choice.

    For me, to buy a vapor only for the skin..
    Do you see the Vapor Ion 4 ?

    If i were you : i'll try to change my choice.. You want a good case with quality, or a case with good skin, but... Probably you could need somes problems?

    Do you see the blade? The Alcase ?

    ahaha thats funny! Dont worry, we will find our way to understand each other!

    The problem is that I dont have enough guts :)p) to spend 150 dollars in a case. Also, the fake one is not that cheap - at least not as cheap as the SGP Hybrid.
