I purchased one of Element Case's original aluminum band type cases. Noticing how dramatically it decreased the signal to my phone, it never made it out of the house. The Formula 4 has no effect on my signal and I am very satisfied the purchase. I bought it from Amazon instead of Element Case and saved the shipping cost.
The only negative to this case is that it didn't quite fit my Bose 'in-ear' headphones jack. It fits, but it's super tight and doesn't allow the jack to swivel at all. To me this was a risk of damaging the headphones. It wasn't a huge problem for me though because I'm a handy kind of guy and have a dremel tool. I simply dremelled the hole a little bigger to allow it to fit appropriately (and you can't tell, still looks good). Literally a two minute job and super easy to do. If not for this, I would rate it a 5.
Update* This phone case is legit I've dropped my phone multiple times and the phone is in perfect condition. The case has not cracked or had any issues either and when i say i "dropped" my phone its more like i threw it at the ground.
There is no degradation in service or wifi signal strength at all thanks to the plastic design, unlike some reports with ElementCase's aluminum lines.
This case combined with any screen protector gives great protection to my phone. It takes drops and bumps without scuffing the matte finish at all. I get compliments on this case all the time. If you can spring for the cost of an iPhone, go with a quality case like this one.
One word of advice: if you keep your phone in your pocket most of the time, you should take the case off and clean out the dust and lint from time to time. It does have a habit of getting dusty in the cracks and ports after a week or two.
