    I'm looking for a nice aluminum style case (preferably bumper but could be a full case as well) but there are SO many different styles out there that it's hard to figure out which would be best. So in your opinion, what's the best aluminum style case for the iPhone 4S currently on the market?

    Paying anything more than $30 for a case is just plain crazy! :p

    That Draco IV looks fantastic but I can't find anywhere online that sells a version for the 4S. What am I missing?

    I wish there was an aluminum case that was tighter to the phone so it didn't feel so much thicker in your hand.

    I'm a big fan of the atomic hybrid - it's what I had been using for well over a year until I picked up the graft leverage. Now I'm torn as I really love both cases. The leverage gets it for convenience (being able to remove it WITHOUT needing tools), but I think I still like the LOOK of the atomic better.

    My favorite aluminum cases are the ones that don't hurt the signal.

    In order of preference of those meeting that criteria, I prefer:

    From what I understand the Vapor 4 Pro and the hybrid E13ctron cases do not impact signal. Both are not completely aluminum, the 4 pro having a plastic gap section and the hybrid e13ctron being aluminum on the front half and a resin plastic back half.

    Do you have pics of your Atomic set-up? I have a couple of cheap bumpers now and a case that's collecting dust but would love to splurge on a nice one, the Atomic Hybrid being my #1 choice right now.

    Thanks!

    Not when it's covering a $600 phone.

    you are so right! esp when these same cases end up in discount stores for $5-7. My last Incase was $5. Plus since the iPhone 4 case fits the 4s.. why?? This week I was in Target and there were a lot of iPhone 4 cases for less than $10. The same ones that were going for $30-40.
