Fake draco's are 8.50-15 on eBay UK site... Just worried about heavy signal loss.

I don't think heavy signal loss is what I'm worried about. It looks like the exact same thing as the iPhone 4 one, with the exact same cutouts. It appears to have one long cutout at the bottom made for a 30-pin connector. And it doesn't even look like it has a cutout for the headphone jack.

Since the antennas are in the glass areas, we can assume there would be no signal loss right?

These cases are 100% metal so there will be pretty heavy signal loss regardless of where the antenna is.

Doesn't look like they were designed for the 5. As a poster stated above, it has the 30 pin slot and no hole for headphones on the bottom.

So does the fake one have the transparent plastic? And if so, does its location actually match up with where the internal antenna is on the 5 so that it doesn't lose any reception?

Is there no lip on the front of Dracos? Any table protection?

Anyone order a fake sector 5 yet? It looks pretty promising! I really want to get one but don't want to find out it kills my signal.
