This for iPhone4 was $69...and for iPhone5 it will also be $69USD I believe.. I found that this is Korea and Japan based company. Their wood ones are $150.. found website http://mall.patchworksonline.com/
I've just ordered one, this morning, from amazon.co.uk: an Alloy X black (for my black iP5)...
Still now I'm concerned, having read some reviews around on other metal bumpers, that this (expensive, but beautiful) case could possibly reduce the reception.
In this case... I'd prefer to cancel immediately the order and opt for a plastic one.
Hasn't anyone tested one of these new metal bumpers?
Nonetheless... I hope that such a "luxury" japanese company had really tested their case before mass production... (!)
i own the alloy x and i have to admit that i can't recommend it. i was not able to fit my iphone 5 into it. the foam or rubber padding is to thick. it partially squeezed out between iphone and bumper which looks very bad. because of this i can't install the bottom piece. i can put one screw in but the hole for the other one is horribly off. trying to force my iphone down into the bumper caused scratches on the chamfered edge on the top rounded corners. i'm really disappointed.
as you can see by the yellow skin of my fingers i'm pushing quite hard.
