Default Pros and Cons of Metal Cases?

Please Login to Remove!

What are the pros and cons of metal cases? I had a leather flip-lid for my 8320 (that flipped up) and I found it undesirable, as it required me to flip it open to text and probably tripled the weight of the phone.

Does anyone have any praise or horror stories for other options?

I have never used a metal case, but have heard from folks who have that they can cause reception problems. That's purely anecdotal though...have never seen any hard evidence.

Ouch. I didn't think about that. But, I wouldn't think that'd be an issue with aluminum, only steel.
