Having just got my new iPhone 5, I wanted a case to protect it asap. There weren't many to choose from as the phone is so new, but this one looked like a good bet.

Have been using the case for a few days and cannot fault the look, feel and protective nature.

However I did notice that on my home wifi and on mobile reception, it was giving me intermittent problems, when compared to my old iPhone 4 and iPad2

This made me spend loads of time checking and reconfiguring my home wifi network, but to no avail.

I then tested reception with the Cygnett case on the phone and off the phone. I was surprised and disappointed to find that full reception without the case was immediately downgraded by almost half when the case was on. There were also intermittent drop outs with the case on. The same was true for mobile reception.

The case is fine when you are in the same room as the router but moving to another room, where the signal is marginally weaker, the case has a major detrimental effect.

Also tested on my wife's iPhone 5 and got same result. Then tested on work wifi network and found same result.

I purchased it from an Apple reseller so will be returning it for a refund, which is a shame. Is anyone else finding the same issues?

The long edges are protected whereas the short edges on the top and bottom are not. If you accidentally drop your phone, the case will get scratched (as can be expected), but your iphone might also get scratched/dented because the top and bottom edges are exposed.

More aesthetically pleasing than it is functional--do not recommend.

The feel, make and finish of this case is great, makes your iPhone 5 look great. Slightly disappointed that not all the edges are covered (the top and bottom are exposed) and that the fibre-carbon back is not straight carbon-fibre but an insert (so it is laminated) - it looks good but you can't touch the carbon-fibre like a case for an older iPhone I used to have (although that one was more expensive).
Unfortunately, the case also lowers reception, especially WiFi - I guess there is aluminum underneath the carbon-fibre insert and around the edges. It is slight but in my home one of the rooms has poorer reception and with the case on the phone usually switches to 3G instead.

This thing looks and feels amazing but unfortunately it interferes with the wifi reception. I think it is because of the metal back. Shame

For me, choosing a cover is always difficult because you can feel them when buying online or even in shops! After reading reviews, I settled on the Urban Shield and I am pleased with the choice. The case is good quality and fits the iphone 5 perfectly. Although I did not manage to place the screensaver on precisely (my skills rather than product), the screensaver is good quality. When I got my iPhone 5, I thought it was too light (after a 3gs!) but this case makes it perfect - a comfortable, solid feel but still slim.

My only minor comment is style - I don't like the thin metal strip round the edge of the back of the case and would have preferred an all black case. My fault for not looking closely at the photos! I do think the black finish of the back is very smart.

Others mentioned issues with reception - my iPhone 5 has not been affected by the cover. Access for charging, etc is also easy. The case protects the phone well and feels secure in the hand.

I was looking for a case that didn't add too much bulk to my phone, and with the iphone 5 just being out there weren't many case reviews out there, so I had to take a gamble on this one based on the reviews for the 4S version. I guess I got lucky because it's the best case I've ever bought. It looks gorgeous and fits absolutely perfectly (unlike the case I had for my iPhone 4). Not much more to say really, the case is perfect. The one downside is that the screen protector that come free with it is not cut very well, but I didn't even realise is came with one, so that's hardly a negative.

Just upgraded to iphone5 from 3GS. After trying many cases for the 3GS and never finding one that was right I have hit the jackpot 1st time with the iphone5

This case is light, stylish, adds little bulk or weight and fits perfectly

Yes, it' not cheap, but if I add up the cost of the multiple cover for my previous phone then it's a bargain

Just bought a iphone5? Get this case, you will not be disappointed

Chose for the looks. Looks good on phone and perfect fit. However after a few months the case snapped at top of phone without dropping it! So does not last.
Also significantly affects wifi performance- presum this is due to aluminium on back. Changed to a speck case and wifi far better now.
