At $59 this one is well worth it. I wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't. I dropped my phone an it landed on a corner, then on it's face with zero damage. Not even a scuff on the corner of the case.

I'm looking for a case too I wanted an element at first but I told myself I am not going to pay that much especially since I was looking at the white edition which was $150. Trying to find just a simple bumper that won't scratch up the metal sides(like the Apple one supposedly does). Got a white iphone ordered so wanted a white one. Anyone have any recommendations?

I had an Element case

Great and all..but not worth it

the screws kept coming loose... and they charge $5 for a set of 4....

but it is the best case i've ever had

I use a CF rear with rubber on the sides, mainly cause the phone feels too 'naked' and slippery without rubber, and fits better in the driver's side handle on my car

Have the carbon fiber one:

Amazing case. Great protection. Have it a little under a year and nothing is tearing or falling apart on it.

ELement sells 2nd Factory cases for 40$ - cases that don't pass their approval. Basically some have scuffs and discoloration. Nothing wrong with the fitment or how well it protects.

Plus, dirt get under the casing and ruins the phone faster than leaving the phone out.
lol... Drop the phone without a case a few times (or perhaps just once) and you'll understand.

be careful what you buy, there are some changes on the 4S compared to the original AT&T Iphone 4. Check this out:

The Vapor case has saved my iPhone4 MANY times. Dropped from full height onto concrete - no damage. I feel it's worth every penny. The unit is suspended on 4 corners by rubber mounts. The case is floating, and very well made. With a $10 case I would have been buying a new phone a long time ago

I hope u know that some iPhone 4 cases will not work on 4S. due to the different minimal design of the phone

I had the same one, the griffin reveal etch. That case scratched the shit out of the back glass on my first iphone 4.

I guess it had something to do with the inside being plastic and rubbing against the back of the phone.
