    It will be a reception killer just like the original one was. The plastic one was good though.

    According to their testing equipment, the new design with holes at top and bottom will not interfere with the reception..

    I hope that's true. Can't be for sure until we get our hands on it.

    If that is the case, the bumper will be a great looking one.

    Only downfall to the iPhone 4 one was the reception issue.

    Hey guys, just got one from eBay from seller beanietech28 (US Dracodesign Auth Seller) for $89.99 Shipped. According to the posting, it'll ship by 10/19. Here's the link to the one that I got (Flare Red) http://bit.ly/P3L4if. Will try it out and use the Field test mode to do extensive testing of signal fluctuations, if any. I did get a Fake iphone 5 Cleave case about a week ago based on the 4/4S design and although i only lost 3-5dBm of reception, it cut my wifi range to about half with random drops/cuts and had difficulty picking up 3G back when switching from 2G/3G/LTE!

    I sure hope this case doesn't affect signal strength .
    But I'm not optimistic...the extra hole on the top would do wonder !?
    So far only hybrid aluminum cases or vapor pro works.
    The iPhone 5 is some how more sensitive than the i4 for some reason.
    Even the cheap a.. imitation carbon fiber sticky from eBay would have negative impact on signal! I tried ;-(

    Coming from an iPhone 4(used to have an aluminum case too) to an iPhone 5, I can say thats wrong.

    Probably the best looking aluminum bumper I've seen for iPhones. These make the phone look sooo sexxayyy!! But the high price tags..... that's what stops me dead in the tracks...

    Just spotted this. Great design. So far, as I read, other all aluminum bumpers again have a signal problem. This has cutouts so I guess we will just have to wait till somebody gets one. Used Atomic Hybrid on my iPhone 4, but it's drab. This looks great. Other good looking case is the e13ctron, hybrid. Just don't like the screws in front.

    I think I might bite the bullet and order myself the gunmetal one. I wonder when it will be out.
