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.

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

The carbon fiber case from cygnet is very beautiful and fits the iPhone 5 well. Though where I live there is normally 1-2 bars of signal. When i have the case on i struggle to maintain any signal in most parts of my house, making the case all but useless. Would not recommend this case to anyone living in an area with poor signal. It also reduces the signal from your homes wireless network which is very annoying!

This is a well made case, however I have one major issue with it - genuine carbon fibre. Even if it is a genuine carbon fibre as advertised by producer it's covered by a plastic film which makes it look cheap and fake.
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.

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.

Bought this when I got my iPhone 5 when it first came out, only now adding the review but would like to say it has been a fantastic cover and is still on my phone today.

I would recommend it to anyone. Very nice design, sturdy and a good protector for my iPhone 5.
