    I have been waiting a little longer. I have just given up. I have moved on to a different solution.

    What is the difference between the Vapor4 and the Atomic iPhone 4 case? Pretty much looks like the same thing to me? Was reading the reviews for the Vapor 4,they said to save the $20 for the so called carbon fiber plate, it is just a sticker.

    No it's not made from Gold, It's made from Aluminium, aluminium is expensive.

    And yes the cheaper covers will probably do as good a job if not better.

    I just struggle to see how performance wise this case will be any different than the vapor one... I'm rocking the otterbox now so if anybody wants a lightly used vapor PM me.

    I received mine this morning, extreme metal, aluminium colour, the IP4 is a very good looking phone in it's own right, IMHO the Vapor case does not make the phone look any better, but it doesn't make it look any worse, it still looks very good, all in all, Im quite chuffed, no reception problems to report. The case does what I want it to do, it doesn't disguise the phone so much as to make it ugly, as some of the more extreme variations of protection do, I have one of the Bubble leather bags to give it protection from keys and change when in my pocket, this combination seems just right for me.

    Now that I have seen both and held both I would have to say save your money, get your case faster, and order from Atomic. Now that they have worked out the signal issue problem (something that the Vapor4 will still have) you should not have any issues with the case. They are a tad bit cheaper, the carbon back (sticker) is as good of quality if not better than the Element one, and the colors they have are awesome. Just my 2 cents.

    I was all about the Element case, than my buddy got his, I saw it, I was still waiting for mine to be even available for sale, and than I saw Atomic, had it within a week or so, very nice piece.

    Why do you think the Vapor case will still have a reception issue? There is physical seperation between the case and the phone as there is cushioned material in the corners of the case.

    Must admit that they are very good quality and always get a comment.

    It is not providing a total isolation 100% of the way around the case. I have found at least that it will require 100% isolation. As the foam pads ware down the phone ends up making contact with the sides causing the exact same problem.

    I am thinking the total isolation technique that Atomic will be implementing on the cases here in the next few days.... actually hopefully by weeks end, will take care of any issues they are having. I will be one of the first to do some field tests on it and see if they are having the same results as what I built.

    The next step is they are going to try a Aerospace technology clear coat which will put a non conductive coating on the entire case, this will prevent any conduction and may also solve the issue, and give the case more luster. Should be interesting as to how this will turn out.
