Also, a metal case seems stupid as metal doesn't absorb impact, but rather transmits it to the phone's structure and internals. This is where rubber and plastic excel.
Lastly, China sells those metal exoskeletons for like $15-$30 shipped.
Those element cases are as much about fashion as they are function. I have never seen a Chinese knockoff near the quality of them. They are cool but I wouldn't buy one.
