Got the case today. First impressions... Great look. This is one good-looking case. It is grey not silver, in the light it looks kinda silver even with some pictures I took with flash. That's probably what happened in case-mate's video. Great fit, slight weight cause it's aluminum but very sturdy. Feels great in the hand! Buttons press very easily, great feel and feedback! I compare those buttons to the feel on the apple bumper but sturdier and better, not flimsy at all. Here's the biggee...Initial tests on reception. I usually have 3 to 4 bars of reception inside my house, mostly 3. Now I'm seeing usually 3 sometimes 2. I have not tested for dropped calls cause that's really what matters, doesn't really matter how many bars there are just as long as my calls are not dropping! I'll update as I use the phone.
