    Not aluminum. Not for $9.99.

    Also not feeling the blue edge. Looks like toothpaste.

    Those are not the 9.99, but I'm sure it's not real alum, probably aluminum looks, I think they're nice looking still

    Weird, I edited the link and now it's pointing to the right one. But at 15.99, I don't think it's real aluminum, regardless it looks nice and I will be ordering one :D

    I don't know - it looks, edge-wise, from this photo on Amazon, like aluminum. Elago is working with aluminum already on cases in the same price range (Outfit Matrix, which I've got on my 5S now)...so it's possible. Either way, it looks pretty slick.

    Those things in aluminum were signal killers!! They always have been!

    I don't know how I feel about the quality for 15 bucks. Also I have had aluminum cases in the past and had issues with wifi reception.

    Looks nice from the pictures, I guess thats one you will have to see in person to see what kind of quality and how it fits phone and what kind of protection it gives if any at all.
