    On eBay I've found a Nexus 5 case that is drop dead gorgeous, and I would really like to buy it.

    However, the sides of the case looked like they were made of some type of metal, and I've heard that metal/aluminum cases cut off the phone signal.

    So I asked the seller what the sides were made of and he said plastic.

    But in the title it also says that its chromed (which I'm assuming means chrome coated because the sides are very shiny and plastic doesn't shine like that.

    I'm wondering, is chrome coating made of metal, or is it just something else. Because I don't want the chrome coating to cut off my phone signal as I need my phone.

    Also, if anyone has tried a plastic chrome-coated phone case, did your phone work the same way or did the signal and Wi-Fi drop?
