    There is a model for those who want a kickstand.

    Their SBS sound system brings the sound to the front of the case.

    Not my cup of tea, but thought I'd share.

    does that SBS actually work decently? I had an Element aluminum case on my 4S and it was awesome.

    Buttons look awesome! SBS sounds interesting. Genuine carbon fiber backing? Might have to order one. Lol. Thanks for the link.

    This review is for the S3 version of the case but he show how the phone sounds with the case off and with it on. And the sound is way better with the case on.
    If you use the external speakers on your phone a lot then this case would be worth it.
    The only thing that might suck is how much louder it's gonna make your ringtones;.

    I would call their sound boost a method vs. technology. The best thing I can compare it to is the effect the tube has on a Bazooka sub. I had one on my S3 and it definitely works. Fuller, louder sound with no decrease in original clarity. The kickstand on the S3 was super flimsy to the point I was afraid to use it. Hopefully they used something other than tissue paper this time.

    The sound idea is nice but come on why put a little piece of carbon fiber in the middle of the back of the divice, in the one area where a phone with a cheap plastic back least needs extra protection, not even covering anywhere near the corners? That makes no sense.

    The phone is fully protected but not by carbon fiber which is more more for looks than protection. This company makes "fru-fru" cases that cost up to several hundred dollars - for the iPhone at least which does not have a cheap plastic back. Go figure. A non cheap plastic back costs more to protect because you can't go on fleabay and pick one up for $10. ....but I digress. At some point, it is like buying a $200 t-shirt. It is still a t-shirt after all. Go to their site and take a look and you will get a sense of what I am talking about. Their android offerings are not financially outrageous yet but they are headed in that direction. I will be getting this case. Feel free to call me "fru-fru"!

    First "in the wild" pics from v3rn on xda: "It's REALLY thin. Much thinner than I was anticipating. It really does feel like it's a solid phone and isn't just a phone with a case on it."

    I received mine yesterday not really happy got the Eclipse S4 and the buttons on both sides are way too hard to press and it didn't look as amazing as it does in their photo's... I told my son when he gets back from his Vacation he can have it or try and send it back... If nobody else was having the button issues it might just be something from issues with quality... I still love my OtterBox low profile case...

    Anyone else get theirs yet. I want to order it for the sound boost but if it affects signal I may pass. Also how much better is the sound with the case on? Thinking of getting the atom.

    Got the Element Atom case today. It is a wonderful looking case. It is one piece. It is a quality case. I just took off my Diztronic case and slipped the S4 into the atom case. It is not big or bulky. It adds a nice feel to the phone and the minimal extra width at the bottom accomodates the SBS port for the sound, which now comes out the front. I really like it. It is expensive at $54, but it makes a statement and might even save the screen if the phone drops. The buttons are just slightly harder to push, but they work perfectly. Reception seems to be exactly the same as when I had the Diztronic case on it. The back of the case is very good looking with a carbon fiber look and a shiny black framing strip. This is a superior case.

    Biggest waste of money for me. I pulled the trigger for on on my iPhone 5 and was sorely disappointed. Glad they took it back. It's for looks as I am sure most of you know.

    Dumb question. Is the sound (with this case on) anything close to the HTC One's external sound - IMO the only thing that the One has on the S4.

    Not really... The One speakers are still better, though it is an enhancement without the case though
