I completely disagree! It killed reception on my 4 and 4s with the plastic back even. The vapor pro blew it away! I sent two of these back and from what I've read on here, the s5 kills signal just like last years did.By far the best case out there for iPhone 4/4s. I will wait to hear and see how it is on the iPhone 5 though. If it's anything like my current e13tron case, it will be worth every penny.
Someone on here had some for the 5 and I bought one from him and its just not a good design and it kills reception. My phone constantly bounces from LTE to 3G when I put the case on. I wouldn't recommend it! Honestly!Had one on my 4S and it was a very nice case. That said, they've redesigned it for the iPhone 5, you no longer screw the case together but rather apply a plastic liner/bumper first and the aluminium bit then clips on over the top of that. Should make getting the case off easier if you ever need to.
Not sure if it looks as nice both front and back, and I kind of liked the screws. Am interested to hear how the redesign goes with reception...I had no major issues on my 4S but some people seemed to lose a bar or two if they used the aluminium shell front and back (as opposed to the optional hard plastic back version).
