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?
More aesthetically pleasing than it is functional--do not recommend.
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
Again the case itself is indeed well made fits IPhone 5 well, apart from the previously mentioned issue around the camera, where a piece of aluminium is showing. But the carbon fibre is a huge let down, it just looks so fake.
If indeed carbon fibre would feel like carbon fibre this case would get 5 stars and I assume that other versions of it do indeed look better, but this one is a huge let down hence 2 stars.
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.
I would recommend it to anyone. Very nice design, sturdy and a good protector for my iPhone 5.
