    Just bought this off eBay cant wait to see it, anyone got one or had experience with one? im wondering what the quality of it will be and if the flash works fine with the plastic diffuser

    either way im not fussed as it was inexpensive anyway and im only getting in to preserve my immaculate original glass back, with the addition of this unique look

    I'd be curious to hear what effect, if any, it has on your reception.

    I ordered one from the manufacturer, just waiting on it now
    Gizmodo had an article on it a while back, you might be able to look it up

    It still has the black plastic spacer between it and the antenna, so it shouldn't interfere with the reception

    I'm not certain that it would which is why I asked. I don't know enough about the antenna system to understand what impact it might have. My recollection is that there have been issues with other phones with metal backs and how that affected reception.

    that turtle back effect is putting me right off now. was gonna run it caseless with this back... but think its gonna get binned as it makes the iPhone chunkier

    i got mine today and very pleased, its a good product but the shipping from HK took ages, 8 weeks in total but yes im impressed... its not metal it seems like a finish on plastic but looks good and makes the phone lighter... the original casing seems quite light for being glass to be honest but at least its tucked away safely now...

    ive not got the humped turtle backed one but the OEM style and flash seems just as before...
