Thread: Ebay cheap "Element Vapor" knockoffs ? Any good ?

  1. #1
    Default Ebay cheap "Element Vapor" knockoffs ? Any good ?
    Are the cheap Vapor Element case knockoffs that run on ebay for around 30 dollars worth it ?

    How is the fit ? Are they really solid aluminum and decent quality ?

    I like the style but can't afford the real (overpriced) Vapor.

    The Vapor cases make GPS unusable b/c it blocks the signal. Also if you live in a weak signal area you're screwed b/c the Vapor degrades signal by about 20db. I had one for 3 days and sold it. As for the knock offs... I would think any metal band around the phone is going to give you issues.

    Yeah knock offs are not usually good quality to begin with. The vapor case like Poseidon79 said gave a lot people problems with signal. I would try something different that maybe doesnt have a metal band.

    Yes, but not the apple one !
    I am going to use a metal back cover, so it will have to fit to the metallic style.

    I recently checked out the Pinlo BladeEDGE. It looks really sweet. Comes with a front and back screen protector.

    I think i might get a clear one. waiting on some reviews.
