    I wanted to remove my case today to give my phone a cleaning but I found no easy way to remove the case. Is their an easy or recommend way to do this? I didn't mess with it as I didn't want to mess up the case. I have the Spigen Neo Hybrid Metal on an iPhone 6

    Turn the phone around so that the home button is facing up, start at the right corner and work the band downward away from the phone. It helps to get a fingernail under the band if possible. Once you get it loosened, it will come off easily. There are instructions in the plastic case that it came in. I'm sending mine back tomorrow because it degrades the cell and wifi signal.

    Below video might help but it is for Spigen Neo Hybrid. The only different is that you must reverse it and start from the bottom where the home button is located as stated by mrgossett

    I was thinking about getting this case but now wondering if I should hearing about the degrading of signal.
    What exactly is the reason it degrades the signal?
    I don't see what material it uses that would do that.
    It's just a TPU case with a metal band.
    Didn't Apple move the antennae on the 6 to the large lines?

    I also had the signal/wifi problem with this case. Returned it for the Apple Leather case.

    You can remove it by using TNT, but be aware that the iPhone suffers from "Boomgate" as well.
