    Hey I am looking for a case for my HTC 8x, which is made out of metal. I have seen many cases like that for iPhones such as a brushed steel plate that goes on the back. Anyone know if there is any metal cases or plates for the 8x? I have seen the Incipio DualPro Shine, however, it's just plastic that looks like an aluminum finish.

    Thanks!

    I'm no expert on the matter, but I think there are a couple reasons you don't see metal cases. First, it could seriously attenuate wireless communication. Second, if it were made out of iron based alloys, it could create a bias in the compass.

    Oh I see. In that case can anyone tell me if the Incipio DualPro Shine(with the brushed aluminum looking plastic) case for the 8x has a premium feel or does it feel like cheap plastic?

    I have that case and it feels premium to me. Definitely the best case I've seen for the 8x. Its a little tricky to get on/off but its a solid case.
