    Really like this bumper, the Blade for the iPhone 5. Someone told me it's bad for signal, is that true?

    4th Design has also come up with another offering i.e the new T-type 3 and unlike the Blade 5, the T-type 3 bumper its is more simplistic. As with the Blade 5 and a host of other all-aluminum and metal cases for iPhone, signal degradation is not escapable, however with T-type 3 , the reception is reduced by roughly one bar at the most. :)

    Not all aluminum cases cause signal degradation. Element cases that have been manufactured since 2011 don't impact the signal at all. The 2010 models did, but it's no longer a problem.
