I still haven't receive my yet, order on the 26th. They must have ship from Singapore to Perth by refugee boat :crying:.
Consider Singapore to Perth is only 5-6 hours flight.

Well, I'm probably the last one to realize this, but I thought I would post my "Doh!! moment" anyway. This morning when I was attempting to boot into TWRP recovery in order to flash the new Beans B9, my phone froze. I then immediately realized that you must have a screwdriver to pull the battery!! Luckily I was at home and retrieved the supplied screwdriver and all is well. However, i am now carrying that little screwdriver set with me. DOH!! :eek:

Signal much worse, selling mine

Received mine a week ago, not happy with the signal weakening. If anyone in Seattle wants to buy and not wait, i'd be willing to sell for $40 or if anyone wants it shipped, i'd sell if you pay for shipping!

Case is a big piece of crap!! Threw it in the trash! I went from full strong 4G to barely getting 3G. I was hoping they were smart enough to make the back panel plastic...oh well.. Don't buy this case you WILL regret it.

Sorry for the rant :)

If you think it's trash, I'll take it off your hands for what it cost to ship to 35801 :)

Got this, tried it. Endured a couple of days - final opinion : rubbish.

I can understand the positive reviews because I would want to say something positive about this case after shelling ~50 bucks on it, but that's not my concern. In fairness, my N2 has been wearing a defender sans screen protector since new, so this case felt wrong in my hand to start with. But I add that proviso only out of an abundance of fairness. Ive bought cases for phones since my Nokia 100 and this is one of the worst.

Without laboring the point, the case feels cheap. It is overpriced by Id say a good $35. The buttons are sh*t. Simple as that. The volume buttons are a chore to push and the power button on mine wouldnt activate properly (I tired re-install several times). Charger port is stupid - my high end non OEM charger wont fit. Will go in the corner with the rest of the case rejects over the years. Hopefully the Urban Armour is good...

so, can anyone comment on their experience with the case that has had it for at least a few weeks?
I've found that over the years of having cell phones, it usually takes a few weeks with a case to decide if you love it, hate it, or think its just ok..

thanks

Oh god, I would never want anyone to mistake my N2 for an iPhone.

My 4G signal without this case was -100 dBm and 36asu

With this case I drop from 4G to 3G.

I guess it all depends on where the tower is compared to where you frequent during your travels.

Some may notice a slight reduction but I wont be using the case when that margin means the difference from a 4g to a 3g signal.

If there is an antenna hack to somehow make the case itself act as the antenna then maybe I'll use it.
