You have to make sure what the case is made of. If it is carbon fiber then it is not the best choice for a phone case as it is a conductive material and will attenuate the signal. If it is Kevlar which is a para-Aramid then it is non-conductive. So choose wisely.
it's Aramid Fiber at least by description. Doubt it will have any problems, designs looks rly the same as pitaka or latercase :D

thanks. this one looks very well designed for the camera bump. the Ringke Air seems lighter than the Onyx, will that also make the phone flat on table?
Just FYI, I have the Onyx and the bumps make it close to laying flat, but it's not totally flat. The bump opposite the camera side is not big enough to offset the camera, so there is some wobble. Seems that it would have been pretty easy to make the bump slightly larger to make it sit totally flat, but Rinke didn't do that.

Yes, of course. I use it on my desk and other surfaces all the time, no wobble at all.
It was the single reason I purchased it. If it had wobbled, it would have been sent back

Mine doesn't wobble at all. It did wobble when I had a tempered glass camera protector but once removed, no issues.

I bought the UAG Civilian and while it's protective and looks good, it's way too slick. There's no grip anywhere on the case.

Returned it and just ordered the Monarch.

Interesting. Mine has a wobble to it. Nice case otherwise and has a great grip. The sides slip down rather easily because the plastic is very pliable there.

    Does the Monarch add a lot of bulk? Is it tacky or slick in the hand?
    I've personally switched from the Monarch to a Tech21 because it was too bulky. It's like night and day. Not only bulky, but unconfirmable to hold TBH.

    Hey, I've tried some new skins from dBrand.
    I really love the black one.
    Really hate the green one, it is shiny and looks very cheap compared to their usual quality.
    See pics, and excuse the dust :)

    Haha well , crap :( I ordered the green one. But I guess I'll judge it after I receive and apply it on my S21U.
    To each their own!
    It's not my style, but I suppose it's not so bad.
    But I think we could not judge from the website, how super glossy it is.
    Also the material feels much lower quality than usual, but I suppose it is the because it is shiny.
    I tend to dislike this, it makes the whole look too flashy, and I prefer it to be more discreet. I guess it can be the plus for some ^^

    i just got the Ghostek atomic slim and really like it. its a tiny bit slick but not bad. feels super premium on the ultra

    Does the metal band mess with the phone's reception?

    My dbrand black swarm grip case has been delayed at the shipper since Tuesday. I don't like leaving it unprotected. So, I saw and picked up a substitute at a kiosk in a mall. It's an X-level Earl 3 case. The top and bottom have just enough edge to let the glass protector sit about 0.5mm off the surface. And, with the little bit of leather padding on the back, it's comfortable to hold and sits level that way also. I'm not sure what the two little holes on the side are for. They don't seem to match anything on the phone. They don't harm anything, just seems strange. In my example, there is a very slight gap between the leather and the side plastic below the cameras (hard to see in the photo, but not quite flush to the edge). It's just enough that I can sometimes feel it, but it hasn't caused any problems so far. Overall, I think this case will work just fine. For less than $20, it's not a bad option until the dbrand arrives. I wonder which I will prefer once I have both. Have to wait and see.

    Those two holes in the side are to pass a lanyard, in case the user wishes to attach a wrist or a neckband to the phone. Have seen it on other cases before.

    I've got Samsung Leather Cover

    Pros:
    - cool look
    - the phone is very firmly attached to it
    - does not enlarge the dimensions of the phone too much
    - protects the island with cameras well

    Cons:
    - it doesn't stick out too much from the screen side, so it's a bit dangerous to put the screen down
    - skin prone to scratching (damage)
    - the phone sways a little when you put its back down
    - it's hard to take it off the phone, I'm afraid that I will damage it when I will try to remove the phone from it
    - it holds in the hand on average, but still a bit better than a bare phone

    Tomorrow will try Ringke Onyx.

    Hello all,
    as promised, here are my thoughts on the cases I got and that I have not seen talked about here yet.
    So today I received the "Rhinoshield Solid Suit".
    Looks - I like it. It's quite simple and elegant. I chose the carbon style. To me, it is what I look for in cases.
    Fit - Really good, the case is really snug on there and will not move. You have to really want the phone out.
    The ports work well with all the cables I could try.
    Protection - I feel confident that it offers a good protection. It's very thick (a bit much maybe, makes a huge phone really huge :D). There are raised lips on top and bottom, but they are on even level to the center of the screen on the sides. The camera array is well protected, and now the phone won't wobble so much when put on its back. A good plus in my book.
    Feel - This is where I would say this is a good case, but not great. The plastic on the sides is actually quite hard and does not offer the good grip of more soft plastics. The buttons are very tactile, but don't click too loudly, so a good plus there. Also, the carbon part is quite soft, it has a good texture, that does not catch fingerprints, but I'm unsure if it's a sticker?

    Overall - Good case, good protection and feel. But it's not so grippy, so minus points here. Probably a bit expensive and middle of the road in my opinion!

    See pictures attached.
