    Hi all,
    I was wondering if people buy these. I'm referring to metal backplates which replace the plastic ones that come with the phone.

    I'm also curious about whether you'd see any value in a thin metal "shell" case.

    If you want to seriously hinder your GPS signal that would be a sure fire way to do it. Asus learned that lesson the hard way and even took off GPS as a feature from their website on the original Transformer Prime.

    If the device is not designed with a metal back originally it is not going to have a positive effect.

    Also, Qi charging probably wouldn't work at all.
