    Hi guys I'm rocking gold aluminium bumper on my gold iPhone 5s and I have a question is aluminium safe for my iPhone? What I mean is can it damage the iPhone's aluminium body when I would be clumsy and drop the phone? I know that it sounds quite silly but I'm not quite sure. The bumper looks like this:

    Cases are meant to protect your phone, not endanger them!

    I don't have any experience with Aluminum cases at all. But I think the most a bumper case like that could do, is maybe cause a couple scratches. But I'm not sure, hear from someone else before you decide to use it or not.

    I have no experience with aluminum cases. Seems to me it could scratch your device just putting it on and taking it off.

    I would be more worried about the impact on radio performance if this is really metallic rather than plastic lookalike. Putting a load of metal close to the antenna, and coupling it to a human body (you hold it, right?) is almost certain to cause reduced performance and increased transmit power. That means more dropped calls, weaker reception, reduced battery life and more RF emitted close to your head.

    Tbh I was thinking the same as you guys! It's already taken off rocking black Belkin case and probably stay with it for a longer time. My blue Apple case got touched by its age and usage haha
