I finally got some pics. Sorry about the low res cam shots, used my crappy one connected to my computer. I lent my "camera" (HTC Amaze 4G) to a buddy.
Sorry for the huge pics. :P
Here are some pics to show my setup which works great. MIME SP, ZOMGO gunmetal bumper, Anker battery, Gunmetal Carbon Fiber Look 3M Vinyl Spiegen Home button.
Sorry for the huge pictures...

Very cool.

I ordered vinyl and that exact same bumper today.

Will post photos once I apply.

But my photos will look exactly like these haha.

Does the button mod make a huge difference or is it mostly for the look?

Just ordered 2 new vinyls blue and black (not sure which one I'll use yet), and the Extended battery. The bumper case looks nice and so does the button, but I'm going to see how it is with just back cover first. I was looking for the bumper with buttons included, are people with those bumpers finding it hard to access buttons?

I did it because without it you can still hit your home button but it is a little recessed. You can get away without it but it makes the home button even out with the Mime SP.

I get the same reception or I think I do at least. If it has dropped it is minimal. I've had two bumpers one ebay special with rubber buttons and the Zomgo.

I'm not uber crazy to check but I've been using Network Signal Info Pro to watch the dBm and I haven't noticed anything crazy low or high when using the cases. I still get the same numbers with or without the bumpers. I really have a hard time taking the bumpers on and off so I can't really get you the final numbers. I can tell you in daily usage it works fine.

The cellular signal may or may not be affected, depending on the provider you're using and the signal coverage strength.

What will be affected is the GPS and its ability to maintain a lock.
There have been many threads and users reporting this.

If that is not important for dally use, aluminum bumpers offer good protection.

I use my GPS all the time, I have not noticed any lock issues. The GPS locks on fast and it doesn't get squirrel-ly on me. Maybe that's just me though. Lol
