Definitely looks thicker than the original back. I might jump on the wood back though

Based on my experience with a metal back plate on my S3, I didn't find any issues for reception (but there probably might have some effect).
It's usually slightly thicker but feels good.
One reason why I didn't go for metal is because I intend to go for a wireless charging solution and a metal back would interfere. I ordered a plastic blue one instead

I just recieved mines in the mail. It definately does vibrate at high volumes. As other's have said, it has extra thickness. I have 5+ difference cases and none will properly fit with this backplate on. Kinda dissappointed.

At closer inspection, the backplate is pretty much a plastic back cover with a thin aluminum layer glued to it.

Quoted directly from the auction page that was linked a few posts up

"replacement hard plastic with metal on the surface" There shouldnt be any surprises here with the materials.

My bad. I should have said that I bought it from here.
