Appears to degrade reception

Pros: Looks great.

Cons: Appears to degrade reception

I was in a spot with no service. My friend had an identical phone (iPhone 5) in same spot with 2 bars. I took off the case, and I then had 2 bars. It would seem this metal case may have adverse effects on the cellphone's reception. All the form in the world is for naught if it impairs the function.

Works with magnets

Pros: Great looking - people have actually commented on it
Real metal
Good protection

Cons: On the heavy side
A bit bulky
Mesh above camera cutout can snag
White borders dirty quickly

I think this is a really nice case and have ordered a second one in a different color. My favorite thing is that it's actually metal and works perfectly with my magnetic dock I use in my car (iMagnet) without needing the extra thin metal plates. I'd been looking for a case capable of that for quite some time! The mesh design breathes better than a closed case and you can see the phone through the holes in places where the supporting plastic bands underneath aren't in the way. Contrary to a few other reviews I've seen on these cases, my tests haven't shown any signal degradation or interference while using the case and the case does extend slightly past the screen so the screen does NOT make contact with the table when you set it face down. The cut outs give plenty of room for accessing the buttons and ports.

Very nice looking but......

Pros: Great looking on the 5s! Have gotten many complements when I had it on.

Cons: Degrades signal strength

Was wondering why my signal was always weak in many places. Visited the Apple store twice to have anything they could adjusted done - no avail. My Spouse has the HTC One M8 and we are on the same plan/provider and he has no signal issues so I was at a loss.

Finally, I Google'd my issue and in a couple of posts some said if you have a metal case that runs the full length of the phone, it may be the cause.

I removed the case and my signal shot up! Not full strength in areas I received none but, it was now working perfectly at home, at work and during a portion of travel to work all places where it received none.

My Spouses signal strength has not changed so it wasn't a fluke like by some miracle AT&T put up a new tower in our backyard or on my work travel route =)

Thank you for your review. Our cases should not interfere with signal reception, can you please let me know how much it affects it by? And have you tried seeing if another case causes the issue or if its specifically just the mesh guard? Please let me know, thank you!

Feels substantial, but snags my clothes

Pros: Nice feel in my hand. Looks expensive. Nice rubber lining that adds cushion. Love the design.

Cons: Somewhat heavy. Mesh came away from frame.

I like this cover but over time, the mesh came away from the frame ever so slightly. This causes it to snag on clothes. Other than that, looks great & gets lots of comments.

Pros: Very sharp looking case
Decent protection from drops or setting phone face down

Cons: Mesh case allows dust, lint, etc. to accumulate on backside

I have had lots of compliments on this case, which is weird because I have never had that happen before. Protects the phone well (dropped it a few times, not a problem so far) and has a subtle edge on the front that allows the phone to be placed face down without affecting the screen at all. The case is metal "mesh", though, meaning there are tiny holes in the case that allow dust and lint and whatever else is small enough to get through to the backside of the phone.
