Carbon fiber is nice.
Christopher Peters
Fits perfectly and it is very slim and thin so it adds virtually no bulk to a very sleek phone.

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
This case was exactly what I was looking for- a slim, low-profile snap on case with an aluminum back. The edges are made of a soft rubbery material, and the case itself fits perfectly. The lip extends over the display a touch, but not enough to make me comfortable setting the phone face down. All ports and buttons are accessible, but pressing the volume buttons, silence switch, and power button is a little more difficult (not a major issue at all, as most cases are like this). The case comes with a screen protector, but I already had one on so I have no opinion on the included one. Another note: the audio port, while accessible, will not fit headphones with bigger jacks.

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.

Color Name: Carbon Fiber
I just received this case (from Amazon) and really like it. It does have a real carbon fiber sheet attached to the back that looks good (the case itself is not 100% carbon fiber, just the sheet on back). It is not plastic but looks to be real carbon fiber as advertised. It is glued on to the back of the case as with other cases made by Cygnett (the aluminum type comes to mind, it is glued to back also I believe). Will it stay glued on? Time will tell. I am very careful overall with my phones and I see no reason for the sheet of carbon fiber to come off. I would not send it through the washer though :) It does have lifetime guarantee it says but I would probably never use it because of the costs of shipping would most likely be more that the case. But they seem to want to stand behind their products.

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).

Color Name: Carbon Fiber Verified Purchase
The case is ver nice overall.
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.

I purchased this case along with the Moshi iGlaze Kameleon, the SwitchEasy Hybrid and the Spigen Slim Armor to see how they compared. The Cygnett is a great looking case. I love the brushed black aluminum on the back. But this case falls short in terms of its protection and coverage. It leaves the corners exposed and is only flush with the screen. Therefore, if you laid your phone flat on a surface, the screen would be making contact with the surface and subject to scratches. If you dropped your phone, this case would not offer much protection either. The Moshi is basically a stand only offering almost no protection; and the SwitchEasy is protective, but very cheap in its look and feel. The Spigen was the slim case winner hands down in terms of protection, feel and overall quality.
