They just released these cases for S4s. I want to see if the "sound boost" actually works.

Yeah same here. They don't ship until the 27th so I'm gonna decide if I want to get one in the next couple days. I hope they put up a video showing it off soon. I saw a video on how their cases are built and they do seem worth the price.

I bought the silver and black eclipse for my s3 and didnt like it. I was going to exchange it for the black at first but changed my mind and got a refund. Now that I have the S4 I thought about getting the eclipse, but like you said $80 is a lot. To be honest I wasnt all that impressed with it while I had it. The sound boost did work, but other than that I didnt like it all that much. Now if they ever released a white one like they originally showed for the S3 then I might spring for the $80.

My favorite case of ALL the phones I have ever had is my Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid. I might get another color soon. I have the white one now. Im hoping they actually start selling the trim separately so the cases with actually have customizable frames as claimed.

I'm glad you like it. I recommend getting it directly from Spigen. Theres a lot of fakes out there.

Ordered my Eclipse case today. They take returns, so I figured I would give it a shot. I loved their cases when I had an iPhone 5. I wish they made an all aluminum bumper like the Sector 5 though. If I don't end up liking this, I may purchase the Draco bumper which was also released today.

I ended up getting the black with silver bezel for my black S4. What didn't you like about the silver bezel? Did you have the white S3? I think the silver will look better on the black.

The Element case prices aren't horrible since you can use the 10% coupon when you register but the shipping stinks at $12 to $20.

$20 overnight means overnight from when they decide to ship it. They say June 27th but if it doesn't ship until a week after that they won't credit you anything.

$12 for 5 day shipping stinks even more.

They could/should just offer $6 3 day USPS like everyone else.

To me the silver didn't match, and it looked like it was spray painted. And yes I have the white s3, and white s4. I'm going to look at that Draco case for the S4 that you mentioned now.

Wow those Draco cases are awesome, but a $100 for a case that's pretty steep.

I hope I like it. I was having a tough time deciding between the black and silver bezel. I knew I wanted the black TPU. I didn't like how the black bezel looks glossy though. And I think the silver will stand out and look better on the black. Their pictures make the silver look matter and looks good on the black S4.
