    Ordered the Carbon Fiber Monarch case from UAG and they shipped it from Hong Kong and it took 15 days to arrive. This case has the thin, loose, saggy bottom like most Monarch cases have. Emailed UAG and after emailing them a couple of pictures they sent me a brand new replacement Carbon Fiber Monarch case which shipped from the US and arrived in a couple of days.
    The bottom on this new case is not as loose and saggy as the first one (still not perfect) but the carbon fiber is 100 times nicer looking on this replacement case. This case really pops and is off the charts in the looks department. I like it ! The packaging has also been updated with the iPhone X marking instead of iPhone 2017

    Here's some pictures of the new and old case side by side.

    Wow, the new one definitely looks much better. If it weren’t for me noticing the saggy bottom I would have kept my black monarch.

    I thought I should give a one month update on my white silicone case in bright daylight. So far clean as new, no color change or yellowing that I was worried about, I've never had a white case before. I don't baby my phone/case with special cleaning or anything.
    On the side note, this combo kinda goes with my watch better (replacement watch hasn't delivered yet, silver steel color matches perfectly with my other two watches)

    Trying something I never thought in a million years I would. I bought one of those liquid nano coatings for phones. Friend has one on her galaxy, I am thoroughly intrigued. Got one, applied it, now to wait overnight for it to cure, and I’ll be rocking my X caseless...it worries me. I still have cases, trust. Looking into a couple others, the totallee just did not do it for me. Sadly. Still loving the Lifeproof slam, so I’m sure that will end back up on it in due time.

    I’m back to using my Diztronic because my Speck Presido broke down on day 15. That’s an important number because Verizon has a 14 day return policy. Go figure.

    I contacted Speck asking for a replacement but I hear they’re good about this so I’m not worried.

    No doubt, I am using a Diztronic currently and have never had an issue in all the years I did. I have had minimal issues with Speck but my first case was defective on arrival because the rubber broke from the plastic up top and now this one is the bottom by the charger port. I don’t know what’s going on with the iPhone X cases because my 6s and 7 were fine.

    That's exactly why I stopped using Speck Candyshells. They always broke in that exact same spot.

    I’ve had great luck until the iPhone X cases.

    1. Ordered from Amazon but it was faulty. Rubber was breaking away from the plastic immediately.

    2. Went to Verizon and the first case they showed me had the same issues as the first. The second case was fine until 14 days later.

    3. I went to Verizon this morning and saw another case and it was broken just by looking at it. The second one I looked at was fine though.

    I’ve been known to break Speck cases around where the mute toggle switch is, but that’s only if I try to remove it starting from the top instead of the bottom.

    I can see that happening. I generally pull from the bottom right, bottom left, top right and slide the top left by the toggle out afterwards. Works extremely well and no unnecessary running of my device on the cases inside area.

    I've never ever had one break.
    I stopped using them before lightning connectors when there was a longer thin plastic line above the charging port. I bought one for my 4 and 4S, and they both broke in the same spot fairly quickly. The ones I had for my 3G and 3GS were good though,

    Got one good case from them when my wife had a 6S. She wanted the same for her 7 and it was nothing buy headaches, never got a good case. I steer clear of them now.

    Generally they do this for verification purposes. It’s a way to ensure they’re not fabricated. Speck, for example, asks for pictures and then sends a replacement and you never send the old case back.

    Understood. In our case the buttons didn't work on the Casetify case. They asked to send pictures. How do you show that? Finally I just asked for a refund, and had to send them a picture of the destroyed case so they were sure I wasn't faking it. That was very satisfying ripping it apart after dealing with the back and forth for several weeks.

    Still waiting on the follow up email to my response email with some pictures that I sent them. If nothing more comes from this (no response from them, or one stating that I’m basically SOL) I’ll just chalk it up to a lesson learned... Along the lines of ‘fool me once, fool me twice.’

    Lordy, I want an Element case so bad! Looks awesome!
    This one is the Recon. It feels really sweet in the hand. For $38.99 I believe it may be one of the best, if not the best, case at that price point. I’ll likely do a competition video on my YouTube channel “TECH-FIGHTER” between this case and the UAG Plasma Series. Anyway, here’s a link to the case on Amazon:
