I was worried that since there is metal on it that it would slow down wireless speeds, but decided to get this case anyway since the outer edge of the case (where the antenna are) is not encased in metal. I tested the speeds using Speed Test and these are the average results (tested 5 times each, held the same way, one right after another):
LTE download (without case vs. with case):
25.93 Mbps vs. 18.57 Mbps
LTE upload (without case vs. with case):
13.95 Mbps vs. 18.12 Mbps
WiFi download (without case vs. with case):
27.49 Mbps vs. 24.02 Mbps
WiFi upload (without case vs. with case):
7.36 Mbps vs 6.44 Mbps
Although LTE upload speeds with the case on were on average faster than without the case, I suspect that I with more tests to get a better average, it would be slower with the case on.
Even though the case slows down wireless speeds, I expect this kind of result with any case manufactured with aluminum. I think the fact that only the back is aluminum reduces wireless speed degradation vs. an all-aluminum case. I will still be keeping this case on as my main case, however, because this case in my opinion looks better than any other metal case available, and wireless speeds are still good.
It came in a very attractive retail package (a bit tough to open... peel off the 3 invisible round sticky tape pieces).
The fit on the iPhone 5 is snug and slim, just how I like it.
The front is raised above the glass screen ever so slightly (almost unnoticeable... I laid it flat and peered under it to make sure), so it should help in case of a screen-down drop.
The edges are a great blend of smooth and grippy, so it will slide in and out of pockets easily, but not too slick as to slip out of hand.
I love the look and texture of Carbon Fiber overall, which is why I picked this case.
My biggest disappointment is the back has a super-high gloss layer over the carbon fiber, that is an absolute fingerprint magnet (way worse than the glass front of the iPhone). This coating also gives the back a cheap plastic-y feel. I'm sure it needs some sort of coating on it, but I was hoping for something that didn't look like a dirty smudged mirror after touching it, when viewed in the light.
There are 2 other "carbon fiber" iphone5 cases currently on Amazon for $10, so for $30 I was hoping this one would feel more like the real carbon fiber it contains under the thick glossy coating.
As for the overall look, it is thin and looks great on the phone. I have a white phone and the contrast looks great. It is very thin but at least now I feel more comfortable in holding my phone than without it. I put my old iphone 4s next to it in a similar case and the iphone 5 is a lot thinner. It hardly added any bulk to the phone. The material on the edges help to hold the phone easier.
As for the glossy shine on back, I can see where this will get finger prints like the screen. But it is easy to wipe off. I am assuming the glossy coating is needed for the carbon fiber on the sheet. It does look very good when clean.
So overall I am very happy with the looks and feel of this case. I do not keep my phone in my pants pocket or purse like my wife does. It stays on a table or a belt holder when I am out. I do not even use a screen protector with my phone (my 4s was used almost a year with no scratches on screen).Read more ›

Great case! I love how it looks and feels. It's slim and sleek. The only thing is that I am finding that the sides are getting nicked with every day use.Published 9 months ago by Snielle

I used this case for a over 6 months. I really like the look of it, but it really offers minimal protection. There was also an area on top of the case, where the plastic broke. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Chris Roberts
This is not quite what I was expecting it to be, but it turns out to be exactly what I needed rather than what I was looking for. A great buy.Published 11 months ago by Donb
