Element Case Sector 5 Black Ops Elite

The Sector 5 Black Ops Elite case for the iPhone 5/5s is Element Case’s flagship case in their tactical line. Aside from the usual features of the Sector 5 case, the Black Ops Elite also uses G10, a durable plastic laminate normally used in handgun grips and tactical knives. I picked up a sample during CES and used it for several weeks. I really liked it for the most part, but had a couple of issues with it.

Speck CandyShell Grip for Galaxy S4

The CandyShell Grip case by Speck is a slight variation of the very popular CandyShell case. It’s identical in almost every way, except for the rubber stripes that run horizontally on the back of the case.

Well, there are bumpers for the iPhone 5, but you won’t find them being made by Apple anymore. A few weeks ago I was sent a bumper, made entirely of aluminum, called the AL13. Here’s what I think about it.
