    Nice product, but the aluminum and signal impact would also be a concern of mine, especially considering my signal strength is far from perfect as is. Not to steal anyones thunder and I truly do hope that the gentlemen are successful, but there are several other thin bumper options already on the market. I have been searching since day one, and it became even more apparent now that the coating, around the edges of my beautiful iphone 5, has become scuffed and marred. I recently purchase the Caze Thinedge Matte Frame, and couldn't be happier.

    Ugh. I want push-through buttons like Apple's bumper that work and don't turn the tactility into a mush mess. I can't believe anyone would care about just another slip case with cut outs.

    Also, I'd prefer the raised edges on the front side to only be on the top, bottom, and corners while being nearly flush with the front along the sides of the screen. So far I have never seen a case like this.

    Also, the inside needs to be rubberized, IMO. Even some rubber cases get dust contamination inside and begin to damage the finish, so I would never consider a metal-on metal case with wide-open button/port openings. I don't even mind it being a bit more bulky (no bulkier than Apple's).

    There is an internal strip. Take a look inside on the Kickstarter page. It's not metal on metal.

    So, it's bigger, thinner, faster, no stainless bezel, but it's 'pretty much the same phone as the last two'? You must be an idiot. There's no other explanation for it.

    Full disclosure, I was an Apple user (still is at work) up till the 4S. I went through a WP7 period with the Lumia 800 and have now settled on an HTC One X. I'll say this, 4S and 5 are the least innovative phones I've seen in years.

    Because it keeps its value after many years. I traded my $249.43 iPhone 5 16gb for a $360 Note 2 =)

    Dafffffuuuuuqqqqq I remember I used to come here everyday and read. Now every informative article ends up in an argument about apple vs Samsung it's really draining sometimes because I just want news. Me I have iphone5, note 10.1, archos cobalt 80, dell laptop & I enjoy them all!!! It's not a big deal! U are not major share holders or own the company. Just stick to the topic!!! Ps I work for Samsung on a temp basis but not small minded enough not to buy other products.

    This article has absolutely zero to do with Apple vs Android. Any further comments not on topic will be deleted.
