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.

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 iPhone 5 Cases5 Stars


Protecting your iPhone is always a good idea, even with the iPhone 5 having ditched the glass back, it’s still prone to a shattered screen if you drop it just right. Speck has been putting out some great products over the years and rarely disappoints with its product offering. There was little time between the release of the iPhone 5 and the availability of Speck’s case lineup. I was able to get my hands on five (out of eleven) of the different style of cases Speck currently offers for the iPhone 5. Here’s a mini-review (if you will) of each case.
