Vote now for your favorite iPhone/iPad luxury case! - TiPb Awards


Why is the Element Vapour shortlisted? and Winning? It looks great but the reviews have been toxic. I'm reading about issues with reception, customer service, compatibility and backplate quality.

I prefer a sleeker look: black, leather, slip in pouch. Don't know who it's by. Has a little apple in the corner.

The ikonicEdge leather slip cases, made in New Zealand, are stunningly good. So much better than the Sena equivalent, and well worth the wait in shipping them all the way from NZ.

SGP's Hybrid cases are the ones getting all the attention in the forums. They are awesome!

I second Alli's vote for the SGP Neo line of cases. I have both the Neo Hybrid and Neo Hybrid EX. Both are great bumper-style replacements with the added bonus of being able to accommodate more connection plugs than the standard Apple Bumper.

The Black ZAGG LEATHERskin for the iPhone 4 with the maximum coverage invisibleSHIELD for the screen. This case is awesome it is thin and durable. The case has a GREAT feel and it gives awesome protection from scratches.

I've read that there's only reception issues with the Element Case's Vapor only on AT&Ts network. Someone (UK) on MacForums had zero reception (with ATT&T) but changed providers and now they have 5 bars using the Vapor case. AT&T IS the problem, not Element Case!!

I choosed Barely There since it's light on the device. Moreover one can choose various color options. But on seeing the poll results, I don't think that I'll be a winner ;-)

I bought the 007 , AR15 , Nickel Edition
Good Things : Rare , Unique, looks good in picture
Bad Things : Quality is not superior, felt cheap, could of done alot better. Very Expensive (Cost $5 to make?) , Poor Customer Service or let say no service (ignores email), Worst of all no Reception! This is product has the worst design, I know what the problem is and I am not telling.
The only reason they have high votes because of the photoshop images they have on their website and products which very few have access to. Stop giving these people money for something thats poorly design and manufactured!

Waited 3 months for my VAPOR CASE order, only to find that it destroyed the only two bar signal I had to begin with. Looks great, if you never needto use your phone.

The folks at Hardgraft are worth following on and twettir for great photos and new products as well. I have no relationship with the company but I'm a huge fan of their products. Functionality and beautiful, sensually pleasing materials in each product.
