Element Case revs up Formula and Ion for iPhone 4 [Give away]



Loving these cases! So sweet looking. It almost makes the iPhone look like a different phone. I could probably convince my dumber friends that I've got an iPhone 5.

its got to be the Formula 4 - Black w/Carbon Back, clean lines seems stronger and smooth...

The Formula 4 is quite possibly the most attractive case I have ever laid my eyes on. It's legal to marry cases in Alabama, right?!

I prefer the Formula 4 case. But everything they create looks pretty sick. Thanks for the chance to win!

I think the Ion looks better because it covers more on the front screen near the bottom. Donate a cool free one to me please

The Formula 4 case is slick. it still has the shape & feel of the Vapor, but i assume it will not effect the antenna at all. I love my Vapor case, its just not practical. Where this would look sweet & get the looks the Vapor did. I hope to win, Id love to sport this look again.

I happen to like the design of the ION 4 case. Been in the market for something new that wasn't an Otterbox.

The Formula 4 looks better IMHO. The ION Case is good looking too, just a matter of preference.

Formula 4 looks WWAAAYYY better Ion 4, but Ion 4 looks like it has more coverage even though it's flexible. I'd go with Formula 4. It's sexy.

I like the Ion case. I am on my third case so far. Apparently, I am either very rough with my phone, or I pick lousy cases. I started with a case-mate rubber type case. It stretched out and the phone kept sliding around, so I went with a Speck clamshell type case. This was my favorite while it lasted, but it was starting to come apart. Finally I got an Apple bumper which is the worst so far. The Ion case is my favorite as I like a little extra protection on the front glass of the phone. The Formula 4 case looks like it's flush with the front glass. The Ion looks like it wraps around the phone and should protect it better.

Formula 4 would be what I would get.
If I could convince HQ (the wife) to spend 60 bucks on a case, let me win!

they are both great but the
Formula 4 - Black w/Carbon Back is the hotter of the two... would be like your Iphone riding in a limo...

I like the formula case better it seems at least that it is smaller and closer to the iphone in all directions. nice piece of kit

I think most people on here missed the bigger point of this article....NEW IPHONE 4 CASE. Think about it for a second... (Shades slid on)

I like the ION4. It looks easier to get on and off and I like the style better!

Has to be the formula 4 case, it looks a lot sleeker than the ION case which is why I bought my iPhone because the thinness, the case does look awesome though and looks like it would protect my iPhone superbly. I'd love to win it because I haven't got a case for my phone and this one looks stylish and nice :)

I'm really liking the clearence given for the volume buttons & silence switch.
This is the most frustrating thing lacking with most cases.
Very cool indeed!

I like the Formula 4 - Black w/Carbon Back! I do a lot of outdoor work, so i need a case that fully protects my iPhone 4!

Totally digging on that Formula 4 case. Would do wonders to cover up all the little scratches I've been accumulating over the past year!

The formula case is awesome, since I dock my iphone a lot. The style of the case is perfect and unique to most anything else out there as well.

I love the Formula 4 case. I have the Case-Mate Carbon fiber backed case now, but the Formula 4 would make me change cases.

Ohhhh Da Formula 4 looks amazing...specially the original bumper styling gives it a much original n better look n feel. the ion 4 has those huge hole kinda thing on the sides which is really iphonic ;)
Its Formula 4 for me..

Edited... forgot a word lol...

Cool give away!
I'd choose the ION 4. It seems like a more protective case, and as a firefighter that keeps his phone on him just in case, I can use all the protection I can get.
I don't know how many times I've dropped my poor 4 out of my pants when I'm changing in an emergency haha

Formula 4, can you just mail it now, or do I have to wait until you announce I won... Should I not of typed that, I guess now everyone knows there is no need to enter below mine... hehe

Hey! Welcome to the Herbalife family : ) Do you have a coach? My first qotesiun would be what do you have for a normal meal? I usually have a shake for breakfast and lunch then dinner I have a meat, vegetable and starch or in layman's terms, pork/beef/chicken a veggie-maybe salad, corn, peas, and then starch-potatoe, noodle, whatever. Or I might just have pasta, soup and sandwhich. Definetly make sure you're drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day. Myself I've lost 40lbs and over 35inches. If you don't have a coach, I'd love to help coach and support you to get your weight off. You can shoot me an email at . Talk to you soon!

Formula looks way sleeker. I've gone caseless for a while now but I've noticed lots of scratches in sunlight so I wouldn't mind having a case as awesome as the formula to hide those scratches and prevent new ones.

Both look great, but I'd prefer the Ion because of the no slip grip, I tend to drop my iphone a lot. Thankfully I've got a pretty good case-mate case.

I would take either one but since you twist my arm I'll pick the formula 4 case!!! Thanks Georgia :)

I always wanted a Element case but just cant afford one, it be nice to win something for first time.
I know Element makes the most stylish and best built cases without a doubt. Formula case looks excellent, would like nice on my iPhone4.
Good luck to all!!!!

I love the Formula! Looks like an aluminum case without the restrictions of an aluminum case. Count me in for a Formula!

I like the formula 4 case better because it doesn't cover the screen area as much as the Ion case.

The Formula 4 looks great with the stylish and strong carbon fiber. It would look great in my car, sadly that would be the only carbon fiber that car will ever see.

I like the carbon fiber back and removable bottom of the formula case. That would be awesome if I won it!

Formula 4! Finally did away with needing to carry around that key to take off the case. they also fixed the issue with the headphone opening being too small for some headphones. looks like they listened to all the "feedback" they were getting. better price too.

I like the Formula 4. I've liked their metal stuff previously, but it has been just out of reach financially.

Both these cases look great! I've been looking for a good carbon fiber case for my phone and I think these might be them. I wasn't really into the "bumperness" of the vapor one plus it has a huge price tag. Both look great but I have to say the formula 4 looks better. I'd take either one though:p

Really love the sleek look of the Forumula case and it looks like it will offer great protection for my iPhone!

I like the Formula 4 case. I bet it's 4 times less likely to crash in the final corner when leading a Formula 1 race!!

I think both cases look elegant, mean and very rugged! The carbon fiber gives it a look like none other. Looks like you could drop your phone from any height and survive! It's a split between them both, so I hope I can get my hands on one!

I'm liking the Formula 4's removable bottom, especially since I haven't found a dock that can fit my phone w/ the case on it.

The Formula 4 looks better. It has a better color and also you can easily remove the bottom part for docking.

The formula 4 looks excellent, good build quality, and would look great on my white iphone!

I kinda like the look of the formula alittle better , but the ion looks like it has a snugger nicer fit to it, id gladly put either one on my iphone

The Formula 4 looks really nicely designed. I like the ergonomic grips on the side, the minimal edge around the screen, and the dockability. Great case!

They are both very nice looking cases. I would be happy to have either of them. Love the black carbon fibre look. It would most likely be the Ion for me. Thanks

Both are really sweet cases but I for some reason I liked the Ion better. Would definitely take either since the one on my phone now is cracked

I prefer the formula case, I like a case that comes in that design, not to fond of the slip on case. I would love it !!!!

I really really really really really love the Formula 4, its exactly what I have been looking for in a case. I could sport it at the High School where I am a teacher. Love to make the kids jealous!

Wow, both of these are pretty sick. I would love to win the Formula 4 case. I like the removable bottom for docking purposes.

First day on this site and allready love it,ive been a Black Berry user for years and finally jumped ship,should have done it a long time ago.would love to have the Formula 4 case to show off my beauty to all my Black Berry friends,Thank You Tipb and Element

Would love to win either, however the Formula would be the best fit for me. Not only awesome protection, but good looks. Ive been looking for a case that makes my iphone4 even more beautiful and i think the formula takes the cake

The Formula 4 is just plain sick looking but the Ion is not bad either. I just got my Iphone and don't have a case yet. Would love to have either one. Let me win.

Love to wrap my phone in the Formula 4. It has the styling cues I love from the Vaporware cases, but without sacrificing the ability to dock and at half the price! It will also be a nice alternative to the Griffin Etch graphite I got from Apple's free case from antennagate!

I have to go with the Formula 4. As my Otter Commuter has to be fully removed to use my dock, I'd love the removable bottom cap for quick docking and undocking.

count me in! I could use one to replace my reception blocking Vapor Pro.
I prefer the Formula case due to it's rigid construction.

Formula is a case worthy to be on the grid at a F-1 race. Sleek and extremely well designed, a real winner!!

My favorite is the Formula Four. Classy, feels great, everything you could possibly want in
an IPhone 4 case. It would be great to win. Thank you for the opportunity!!!

Formula 4 case looks awesome. Been looking for something to replace my old apple bumper and I think I've finally found it!

Holy guacamole the Formula 4 is a slick looking case.Sure would make a nice early fathers day present,(wink,wink). Good luck to all.

I like the formula 4 case. It looks really good (ESP to a car enthusiast like me) and looks like it protects well. Hopefully I win this case since I recently lost my job and can't afford to buy it if I don't win.

Love them both as they each feature a racing inspired look to them. I would prefer the Formula 4 however as it approaches a more aggressive design which really suits my tastes in cars (and in this case - an iPhone case). Whether or not I'm picked, thanks for giving one of these away!

Right now I have an 'incase' clear case (cracking in both top corners for some strange reason) to show off my "Neon Genesis Evangelion screen protector (front and back). What better way to make my phone look more 'NERV'-like than to have the Formula case to keep it "top-of-the-line"!!!

The FORMULA 4 CASE FTW!!! That thing is awesome! Looks like it would fit my needs/wants for a case perfectly!

Hey, I need an iPhone 4 case REALLY BAD because I don't have one and love my iPhone 4. I take a look at your blog at lest 3 times a day, just awesome. Could I please have the The Formula 4 case :) It looks really nice :D. Thanks a lot, lots of interesting things on this website!!!

I like the Formula 4 case as it is durable and sleek. Much better looking than the bulky otterbox defender case my Iphone 4 is currently wrapped in.
