Will this case make my signal weaker and make the battery drain faster?
I really like the look of the case but this is my main concern


Thanks!

It looks like from the photos, that the black plastic on the case is over the plastic strips where the antenna are located on the M8. If true, I would think it would have minimal or no effect on signal.

The brushed metal looks nice, and the colors are cool. But the shape reminds me of the nearly ubiquitous iPhone cases.

Thanks
I'm hesitant to get it because the front isn't protected , but I have a tempered glass protector. I don't know if that's enough protection

No explanation or evidence given. Just an opinion or guess?

Anyway, what is the harm in checking it out? It costs $4 and looks cool.

Any protection on the inside? Metal on metal will produce some serious scratches....
