    A complete review on the Sector 5 SE Silver (Original) vs Sector 5 SE Silver FAKE OEM
    See our FB link :Sector 5 Original vs Fake unit | Facebook

    It's unfair when i hear people say that "Fake OEM Sector5 is almost the same with the Original".
    The Fake OEM may attain a little similarity on the shape and design but never on the finishing and craftmanship of the Original product.

    The Fake ones are somehow like a piece of an aluminum material taken from an owner type jeepney, It's almost like plastic and not Aluminum Aircraft Metal.
    What is inside is important, it does not have any Rash guard Suede protection. It can damage or scratch your iPhone5 body.

    It offers little protection from minor fall.

    Here's some photos i took during my review:

    Upper Photo is the packaging and accessories included in the FAKE OEM Sector 5 SE

    This is what you get from the Original Sector 5 SE (finest accessories)

    Above is the SECTOR 5 SE FAKE OEM with its additional plastic parts and wrench.

    [​IMG]
    TOP : Fake OEM Sector 5 SE - The E logo is smaller than the original. The Element case word is bigger but will fade away in a few days usage.

    Below : Original Sector 5 SE Silver
    Element case word is smaller but laser engrave so will last a long time.

    Price difference is huge from the Original Sector5.
    It's actually a matter of choice, it's like buying a car.
    You cannot compare BMW to a Kia Pride , an apple for an apple as they say in terms of comparison.

    End of the day, it's up to you whether you will choose the best premium case for your iP5 or you will degrade it with a cheap oem cases.

    got Sector 5 black for my IP5. slickwrap carbon black for the back cover.

    personally, it felt a little weird at first, holding the phone with sector 5, but it grows on you after some time, and im pretty much used to it after 2 days.

    i like the pouch that came with it. it adds more protection to the phone. just wished that there was a way to plug the earphones while the phone is in the pouch. (which is why a part of me is thinking of getting a separate pouch..so that i can listen to music while the phone is in my pocket.)

    all in all, Sector 5 is a great product! well worth the money. :)

    Just got the ElementCase Sector 5 Standard Edition in Black, and paired it with a with an iCarbon 2-tone Titanium and Black, front, side, and back skin. It's like I don't want to use the phone anymore, and I just want to stare at it, hahaha! Good stuff! :cool:

    Just installed the Sector 5 FE bumper that I got from Lemirand. It's definitely a head turner.

    Lemirand, thank you for posting the fake element case. I received the exact copy today. It cost me the full price and purchased from an eBay seller in the UK. he is still adamant that it is genuine. I am gutted to say the least. I am now pursuing him through PayPal and eBay and I have reported him to Element themselves.

    No thanks. I've just ordered a legit sector 5 case from Element. I love these cases.

    This is the fake I received from an eBay seller. I paid full price for it too. The seller insists that this is indeed a legit case. Could I ask anyone in the know to back me up in order that I can go back to eBay with some support? I have also emailed Element the images too, via there support ticket system. The seller is refusing me a refund unless I remove the negative feedback, which I will not be doing to save anyone else the pain. He basically copied and pasted Elements website images onto eBay.

    sorry to hear that. but beware. there are 2nd generation replica of the sector 5.. it looks exactly the same as the legit one.. the only difference is on the finish of the anodized paint...

    Thanks. The main difference as already pointed out on this thread is the enlarged font on the case, and the dodgy spare parts. The seller thought, wrongly, that he could get away with this as the whole lot comes in an authentic box.

    Hi Sir Lemirand,
    Will Element (or Applewerkz), be selling the accessories / parts separately?

    I like the leather pouch of the Ronin...

    Hi Guys,

    I will answer the questions about the Leather pouch & Black ops holster all together.
    We asked ELEMENT USA about this and they told us that they are not offering it separately for the time being but they have plans in the future.
    This means, no exact date yet.

    No worries, we will keep on pushing them until they give in :)

    Will definitely let you know guys.

    Incoming this week (Jan.31)
    Sector5 - Black, Silver and the limited Gun Metal colors
