make something like the COMP design. something similar that doesn’t cover the back side of the phone. some people want to show the entire phone but just protect the delicate part like the antenna.

i would like to see something that will fit the white iPhone. i’m getting that as soon as the preorder becomes available.

Mr EZ September 25, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I love the comp too. I hope by Dec you’ll have one for the iPhone 5.

Agree. The Sector is too industrial looking for my taste. It’s a Vapor Pro that i want for my iphone 5. When you come out with that i’ll buy.

Reply

Tony T. October 24, 2012 at 8:38 am

Guys, the Vapor concept won’t work on the iPhone 5; If you look around the edges of your iPhone, you’ll see that there are 4 segments where the metal doesn’t meet. You need to have an insulator around those areas so the antennas don’t interfere with each other. So even if they did a Vapor concept, it would be segmented in multiple pieces like the Sector, or most likely the iPhone would be fully suspended by an insulator within the case, which would add extra thickness.

I can’t wait to to get my SECTOR 5! YES i am one of the first 10 to RSVP and those guys who replied on someone else’s comment up above, i hope they get bumped out for cutting-in-line in front of me and these guys after me.

Thanks for the update, I know when it does come out, it’s going to be the best of the best case.

I can’t wait to trash this SPECK CASE i got on my iPhone 5 right now, it’s really making me want to switch back to my Vapor Pro Elite 4S till the Sector 5 is delivered.

vapor pro like please, Something high end like the vapor pro,
The reception was much better than the cheaper models and the weight balance was perfect.
I’ve tried the lower model cases but I gave it away because I didnt like it, and Stayed with the Pro series.

Liked it so much I bought 6 so far since iphone4 release

I will certainly be getting an Element Case for my new iPhone 5 when it comes in. The sector case seems like a bulky case to me with the screws in the corners??? Hope it is very low profile, or even better make a comp or vapor case for the iPhone 5, keep up the great work guys!!!

Reply

Kyu September 14, 2012 at 7:56 am

I’m thinking it’ll be the same thickness on the corners as my vapor pros,
if not slimmer.

I think it’s an optical illusion, my Vapor Pro’s are bulky in the corners as well, like swollen.
Just looks lower profile because it’s a simple bump look rather than screwy look ?

But I’m with you, I’m hoping for a slim low profile, I understand the thickness of the previous cases is what gave ultimate protection (And I’ve dropped/tossed my phone several times. never had it crack or break on me for 2 years straight)

But Hopefuly they figured something out in it’s design to go lower profile

during 9/13

Reply

Beansdad September 14, 2012 at 8:17 pm

I hope not, but if I remember correctly this was the situation with the first vapor case for the iPhone 4. Maybe, just maybe they got advance specs. We can only hope not to have naked iPhone 5′s running around.

Reply

James September 14, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Please add a raised edge to the front of the Formula Case for the Iphone 5. This would make it one of the leading if not the best Carbon Fiber case in the market.

TonyStarks September 14, 2012 at 4:08 pm

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE– quickly release the iPhone 5 Sector case in a NICKEL SERIES version. I really would like an option of the Nickel Series with the wood piece. Or to begin, at least provide the option of a wood piece instead of the clear plastic piece on this first version of the Sector.

While I love most all of your cases, I really don’t like the small plastic piece on these cases and think the wood piece you provide in the Nickel Series is beautiful. PLEASE give us at least the option on just that one piece on this first version. Thanks Element! Look forwarding to purchasing more cases from you!

Thanks. I have the JH Audio JH16 In Ear Monitors. Do you know if there will be enough clearance around the earphone opening to accommodate their L connector plug? That’s always been a problem with other cases I’ve bought in the past for my iPhone.

Reply

simeon kessler September 28, 2012 at 8:35 am

Same issue here. the JHAudio L connector has a big fat round base. :(

They just came out with a new cable upgrade though that has the mic and volume buttons, and straight narrow connector. Pricey though.

Alasdair September 15, 2012 at 2:43 am

From what I’ve seen of the Sector case, I’d really prefer to see a Vapor Pro case for the iPhone 5, and a supporting Vapor Dock with the new Lightning connector to support the iPhone with the case as well.

I was really sold on Element Case when I saw the original Vapor designs and some of the (albeit expensive) limited edition cases which looked so classy. I think there was a James Bond one at one point – anyway, I’d like something for the iPhone 5 that looks professional, is comfortable and of course has legendary build quality. The Sector case looks good, but not very classy, like the Vapor.

Please, will there be a Vapor case and Dock for the iPhone 5? :)

Reply

John Reheis September 15, 2012 at 9:00 am

Will they make the Vapor Pro Elite Black Ops II case for the iPhone 5? Just had got a email about it from VZ Grips but I knew the i5 was not going to work with the case because it’s going to be bigger.

Reply

Kyu September 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

I get what u mean also, the sector is cool but a bit sporty/military looking. May look out of place for an more sophisticated environment, such as for work or office firms etc, I agree also
Sector may look a little iffy when wearing a suit or polo. But I think an all black may mask some of the sporty look

Dear Sir,
I’m hoping the new element 5 case for the iPhone 5 will be available in “polished Nickel”. I plan to purchase the new case plus the Carbon Fiber back plate in white and of course the Dock also in Nickel. If those three items are going to be available I’m ready to order so I’ll have everything on the twenty-first when my new iPhone 5 (White) shows up at VERIZON.
Looking forward to hearing from you so I can place my order. V/R

What is taking so long to get the iphone 5 case information? The site says that is was released on Sept. 11 and now it is the 18th. My phone will be here in 3 days and I want a case to put around it. I already have a Vapor pro and a Black ops case on my 4s & 4, and I love them – so where is my 5???

Reply

Kyu September 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

slight chance they are just holding on till sep 20th or 21st,
Maybe it’s a contract thing with apple, or some other reason we just don’t know about and they’re not allowed to say.
I’m pretty sure seeing how high volume sales they’ve had with Iphone 3/4/4S
They are well prep’d , and already pre-making but assuming they can not make enough on time , Thus leads to “limited qty”
so I guess we won’t know anything official till actual Iphone5 Release, I noticed a few other case companies I was looking at for temporary purchase till sector 5 is out, is also not mentioning much.

apple would probably want their cases sold as much as they can first, before 3rd companies get a shot at the sales, so They might’ve done the whole “we’ll give you specs if you contract not to release any forms of info till release date”

what I just wished Element would do is take pre-orders, Despite color and options just take my money so I can feel alittle bit at ease that I’ll atleast get one before they run out of stock.
and not push me back another month for a back order

Relax everyone, don’t get yer knickers in a bunchy. I’ve yet to see a small, custom iphone case manufacturer release a case for a brand new product before they can get it in their hands to validate fit and finish. The same exact thing happened when the new ipad was released.

If you can’t possibly go through life w/o a case on your new iphone5, then pick up a cheap rubber model until the sector is released.

Element Case is the best and over price in my opinion (yet I am still fall for it), but Element Case never creat and sell an oversize frame shold at least design a belt pouch.

Woot! Copped an iPhone 5 on 2nd day of release. I love my Vapor Pro on my iPhone 4S. I hope EC comes out with different metal tones for the white iPhone 5. Gun metal is beast but not so good on the white version. Should I pay you now?

I have a Vapor Pro for my iphone 4. Now I have the iPhone 5 in hand and cannot wait to get your new case on it. I’m voting for a Vapor Pro version as well. The Sector is cool looking, but it seems bulkier on the corners, so here’s hoping your are working on a Vapor like version sooner than later. Hurry, my iPhone 5 is vulnerable and needs your help!

I purchased a cheap POS to keep my iPhone 5 safe until your Sector (and other) case(s) arrive. How long was that cheap case on my iPhone? About ten minutes. I couldn’t handle it. Bring on the Element cases for iPhone 5!

I hope you guys are planning on making a clear back for using with this case.. otherwise a lot of people will forgo this case..

Reply

Joe September 25, 2012 at 7:47 pm

The sector is built to be very configurable – I’d imagine that some of the add-ons might be different color backs (given that other Element cases feature them). That said, have you ever used a clear case on your iphone? I have, and I can tell you with confidence that it simply gets all gummed-up and dirty in there.

As for the “a lot of people will forego this case…” comment: clear backed cases are among the least popular styles of mobile cases. Check just about any case manufacturer, and you’ll find a handful at most. It’s just not a very popular option.

I rocked my iphone4 with a simple bumper (no front/back) for 1.5 years – no issues. Heck, you don’t even HAVE to use a back on the sector at all.

I’ve been eyeing these cases for a couple years but I have never been able to convince myself to pay $130+ on a cell phone case! I absolutely love the way these look…not even a close 2nd that I can think of when comparing this case to others. So, here I am again, trying to convince myself to pay $160 for this case! May be you guys can help me…please talk me into it! I do have one question though…Does the case provide any shock protection at all? And I’m guessing if you drop the phone face down you will have a cracked screen with this case, correct?

Thanks!

Reply

Ken October 5, 2012 at 1:19 pm

You waited a couple years over the $130 price, now it’s been a couple years and it’s $160. I gotta tell you, pull the trigger my friend. We are all paying almost as much as the phone for a case. Anyone outside of the ones like us that buy it, look at us like we’re crazy when they hear the price. But they also are the envy of all who see you with it. So (to borrow from a sneaker company) Just Do It!

Reply

Ken October 5, 2012 at 1:22 pm

And to answer your question about cracked screens. I had a Vapor Pro on my iPhone 4 for 2 years, and it was without a backplate, so the glass front and back were exposed. I dropped it quite a few times over the years and it never cracked front or back. The way the Vapor Pro held the phone, the glass was inset just below the rim of the case, so the glass was not as exposed as you would imagine. The Sector 5 looks like the screen sits at or above the rim, so I don’t know if it’ll be the same case (pun intended). I’ll let you know on Oct 19th when I have my case in hand after having been shipped overnight. Good luck, hope to see you post that you bought it after all.

I like the overall design, but have a question. Why are there slots cut along the right side and top of the case? With the design of the phones antenna not around the perimeter, would a solid side and top work and not affect the signals? I’m looking to keep dust and grime out of as many places as possible. The iPhone 5 seems to attract more dust than the previous models.

They will start shipping Oct 18th to the first orders, but it may several weeks for your order to be fulfilled.

Reply

Jane October 2, 2012 at 4:33 pm

So, if I’ve got this right – I have to wait until your ready to take my per-order, wait a few weeks for it to be fulfilled, and wait probably 3-5 business days for shipping. Since you aren’t releasing a per-order schedule (e.g. 50 per-orders per week), its near impossible to predict when I might get the case. Mid-November looks conservative at this point – and that’d be two full months after the pre-order list.

I’m losing consumer confidence in the delivery of your product. Maybe I’ll check back in a few months, hopefully you’ve got your act together by then.

Reply

Legarreta October 6, 2012 at 11:02 am

I agree with Jane. Iphones are very expensive to have them unprotected and spending money on a case in the mean time this one comes out its just ridiculous. Its taking way too long.

It looks like the Sector 5 case will allow the iPhone screen to touch the surface if I happen to lay it face front on a surface? Can you confirm this? I can’t zoom in on the images provided but from what I can see, it doesn’t seem as if the outer ridge of the case will provide a small lift so that the screen will not touch a surface of a table, etc. The Vapor Pro images seem to have an outer ridge that doesn’t allow the phone screen to touch a surface. I’m new to the Element line of cases so I was trying to figure this out. Thanks for your help.

Reply

Sam October 5, 2012 at 4:51 am

I have 2 other EC’s but Sector looks too bulky and heavy for a thinner and lighter IPhone 5; going in the opposite direction of the trend. Will there be a Vapor Comp? Forced to look at the Lifeproof cases. Only 1.5mm thin and weighs less than an ounce.

Does this come off cleanly? And it look to me like the sides are flush with the front, which means dropping this on its face will most probably smash the screen. It looks amazing, but it is functional or purely aesthetic? A full product description would be useful.

I removed the original 16 pin cable, and replaced with the 8 pin lighting connector and held it in place by wrapping thin wire around the cable to hold the connector in, similar what what a collet would do. Not the best solution, or a permanent one, but works well enough until the Element collet is released.

Did you see our Top 5 FAQ? There is a soft lining in the case and we also provide an adhesive Rash Guard wrap to further protect the outside of your phone from anything else that might come into contact with it.

The adhesive for the Ultrasuede back plate is a lot like that on a post-it note – as long as you keep it clean, you can take it on and off as much as you would like and it comes off cleanly.

The front is not flush with the face of the phone. There is a slight lip that provides lay-on-the-table protection.

I have one question. If I’ve signed up for Sector 5 list, can I buy a standard edition one, or preorder invitations only allows you to buy First Edition??

Reply

ecadmin October 29, 2012 at 1:14 pm

The order invitation that you will receive is for any of the available editions – FE Graphite Grey, Black or Silver.

Reply

Matt October 29, 2012 at 1:18 pm

That is awesome :) Can’t wait to get my invitation. Love the black Sector 5. Another question. I guess you’re sending invitations in day after day order. On which day are you now ?

ecadmin October 29, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Not really sure – it’s been done on a quantity basis with regard to how many units we can get out of production.

Jeremy October 29, 2012 at 9:28 am

Yay! My preorder came through this morning – ordered with next day shipping!!!! Oh I can’t wait, maybe they will ship a little sooner than expected :)))))))

hi 4 questions for you..

will the sector 5 works with full body wraps like zagg or ghost armor?

will it work with SPG GLAS.T?

and outside of pre-orders when do you anticipate the sector to be readily available (NOV/DEC?)

and can you verify if im on the pre-order list?

thanks.. :)

Just received my sector 5, awesome looking case but a few problems I just noticed. The apple adapter with the 6″ cord does not fit, I’m bummed about this as I bought this instead of the adapter without the cord to try to get around any fitment issues. Also mine did not come with two back plates as stated, I only got the suede one; no carbon fiber. I had the OG vapor comp 1st gen for my 4 and it had similar issues with chargers not fitting, I just wish this had been addressed for us first edition buyers of the sector5.

ecadmin October 31, 2012 at 10:58 am

Customer should have contacted you to let you know about the carbon fiber – we’re going to be sending out refunds for the difference and giving you a coupon for the redesigned piece when it’s available. Is the 8 pin connector on the short cable bigger than the normal 8 pin connector?

Reply

Drew October 31, 2012 at 11:43 am

Apparently it is slightly taller (8 pin end)than the normal lightning cable. Thank you for the prompt reply. Also thanks for the info regarding the back plates.

Ivan October 31, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I received mine without the carbon fiber back plate as well.

jeff November 1, 2012 at 3:49 pm

What I would like to know about the carbon fiber backplate you are no longer including due to issues on your end, is WHO is paying for the shipping when it does become available? You guys charge $30 shipping to receive the case here in Canada, so I really hope you don’t plan on charging me another $30 to order the carbon fiber backplate once you get the issues sorted out. I paid an exorbitant amount of money (in the world of iPhone cases) + $30 shipping so I was pretty disappointed to learn that one of the factors that led to my purchase (the carbon fiber backplate) was no longer being shipped. The refund and promo code to get it when it does come available is great, but not if you are going to charge me another $30 shipping. I submitted a ticket a few days ago, but have yet to receive a reply about this.

Reply

ecadmin November 5, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Nope, we’ll pick up the shipping for that back plate when it becomes available.

Carbon fiber is not available with any of the Sector 5 cases at this time. You will only get the Ultrasuede back plate.

so just to confirm for people that just placed an order and probably get it beginning of December will get a coupon to order and will we still be responsible for paying shipping cost at that time?

Wll there be a design adjustment to fit the lightening to 30pin short cable to the case?

Reply

ecadmin November 9, 2012 at 2:16 pm

The Sector 5 case was designed so that the cables included would fit with the case. Since the Sector 5 is modular and we may be selling another bottom piece that with accommodation for the larger plug on the adapter.

Are you guys going to post new pics of the available colors on Facebook? I’ve been checking since yesterday and I’ve yet to see any. I have my invite to order but can’t decide on the color because the pics you currently have aren’t very helpful. It’s difficult to distinguish the Grey from the Black from the pics that are posted.

I have researched every iphone 5 case available at this time and your case is by far more superior than all the others. I have been so anxious to get something to protect my Iphone 5 and have registered for one of your new sector cases. Is there anyway possible to know if I’m am looking at weeks or months to get my pre-order approval or if I should I just order something else to protect my iphone 5 at this time. Thank you for your response

Just got my Sector 5 FE yesterday and I have to say it looks amazing on the phone! I’ve been using a beast of a case (not going to name drop the brand) to keep the phone safe but the case made it so big I had to use a belt clip. The Sector FE looks amazing and truly captures just how slim this phone is without compromising style or safety. beautiful work Element. I’ve owned several others case styles for my iPhone 4s but the Sector 5 beats them all out, it looks and fits better than any other Element case I’ve had and that’s saying a lot because I almost didn’t want to get the new iPhone because I knew I’d have to give up my Vapro Pro Nickel plated case.

Well done Element, keep up the great work and hopefully we’ll see a nickel plated version of the Sector 5 soon!!!!!!

Brett November 9, 2012 at 5:39 am

“We prefer to bring new ideas to the table for your iPhone 5 than to try to rehash and package old ideas, no matter how cool they remain. ” Being a marketing major, this sounds like BS. Your cases are high quality, be that as they may, they are also expensive! Thanks for forcing me to not buy a vapor. I cannot justify the price tag you will put on the sector!

Reply

ecadmin November 9, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Being a marketing major, you’re going to learn that companies have to move forward in order to stay competitive. Stalled innovation means that someone else will take the lead in the marketplace and that old design concepts don’t always work with products that have evolved both esthetically and technically. Element Case is not just another me too brand that has jumped on the bandwagon of creating products for the aluminum case market – we started the aluminum case market.

I have an elemen case that has had a couple of problems. First,the backing is coming loose at the corner. Second, the fit of the frame was getting loose so I tried to gig tighten it up with the tool provided. Now one of the plastic corners broke at the screw location! I paid way too much for this to happen.
