Vapor Comp Review
Alright, here's my review of the Vapor Comp from Stylish Alloy Back Cover Bumper Case for iPhone 4 4s Multi-color
Ease of Install: Easy. The screws on the Vapor Comp are a little bigger than the Vapor Pro and are easier to handle because of that.
Fitment: Excellent. The fit is spot on. No gaps and absolutely no loose spots. Itís very tight so be careful when sliding the aluminum piece on. What I did was slighty bend it out as I was sliding it on so the that metal edges wouldnít scratch my phone. Keep in mind that I have a Lucky Labs Teksure wrap on my iPhone.
Accessory Compatibility: My only third-party accessory is my AT&T car charger. The original Vapor 4 wasnít compatible with my car charger. The Vapor Comp however is.
Signal Performance: No loss at all. Everything performs fine. My GPS was also still working very well even on EDGE network. Wi-Fi performance did not take a hit at all.
Quality: 9/10 Ė The only thing holding me back from giving this a 10 is the plastic side. It doesnít look as good as the genuine Vapor Compís piece. The piece is very transparent. Although some others might like that as it really shows the side of your phone.
Overall Impression: The Vapor Comp is my new favorite case. I prefer this over the Vapor Pro. It feels better in the hand (particularly the rubber pieces along the right side) and I think it looks better. I did place a rubber piece under the lock button to ensure that it clicks well. It doesnít have a rubber piece under there out-of-box and frankly, I didnít even bother trying the case without adding it. Very good case and Iíll likely purchase more when this one wears out.
Thanks for reading guys. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions on what you would like me to add to my reviews.

Nice review. Thanks. I was excited to read about a new Vapor Case, but the plastic side bar completely put me off. Yes, the side rubber grips did look nice.
When I think Vapor Case, I am thinking plush aluminum. Plastic jars with the theme of a Vapor case, don't you think?
