    Got in the Black/Black Elite today and I must say it is a sweet case. Love the G-10 back. I think the Carbon Fiber looks just as good if not better at a much cheaper price. I also think the G10 is going to be a huge lint grabber. Same post on XDA

    Here are a couple of pictures:

    The G-10 feels much better in hand. The carbon is a little snazzier looking but also way more slippery. I like them both.

    Thank You and now I might be selling the Elite. You need one?

    I have had the Element Case Recon Carbon Fiber, Black Ops Elite and Black Ops Pro. I have to say that the Pro with the machined CNC aluminum back is the nicest of the bunch. I was also worried that the aluminum back would affect reception but it does not. Now, NFC might be another deal but have not tried it yet.

    I'm probably going to sell the Elite and order up a Dark Earth Pro.

    Here are a couple pictures next to the elite:

    Anyone buy one of the Recon Pro Black-ops version for the S5 on eBay for $ 28? I already had a Chroma version and bought one of the Pro Black-ops versions and they are identical, perfect fit, cnc aluminum on the back is perfect also. Did I mention $28!!

    The Pro of coarse .
    You do realize that G10 is just fiberglass right ? They put a die in the resin to make it black . G10 is what they make some pc boards out of. I'm kind of surprised that they sell the Elite for more than the Carbon when the G10 is nothing special.

    can someone confirm if the RECON CF is just a sticker with carbon fiber design?? it looks like it.. it just looks like a sticker stuck on the plastic.. as you can see on the edges.. it this is the case, then they are cheating on the advertisement... they say its genuine carbon fiber...

    The screwed up bezel at the SBS is driving me nuts and I believe that I'll be exchanging/returning this case. I'll call them Tuesday morning and see how it goes. How many have a messed up bezel at the SBS?

    it screws up the bezel everytime you take out the phone.. thats hard plastic and wont give when you try to pry the phone out of the case.. thats what happens.. it didnt start out like that in my opinion. i have 2 element cases with the same problem.

    this is why i take out my phone sideways, so it screws up the top portion of the case but not as much.. you take the phone out one side first then like flip it out..

    Couldn't tell ya and I'm not about to damage mine to find out for you sorry . Try calling them and asking . For what it's worth the panel is real carbon. I own enough carbon fiber to be able to tell if it's real or a vinyl sticker . A vinyl sticker wouldn't last long .
