    Perhaps you're overreacting a bit, though that's true, the Lumia 950XL antennas aren't designed for full aluminum back cover, but i guess they could have make the back of plastic glass, or something similar to that, like the old iPhone 4 and 5, that shouldn't impact the signal and would definitely feel way better than that cheap plastic, but of course we are talking about a 3$ chinese cover, we can't ask them to do that
    Those chinese covers should have Acrylic back, that is a sort of "glass-plastic" (that's why it seems so light-reflecting in these covers).
    Old iPhone 4 had real glass at the back, but real glass would have killed the Qi wireless charging of 950/XL. Does it feel so cheap compared to the stock 950s plastic back cover?

    Anyway, I still waiting my silver one too before judging myself.
    Could someone that already received it (even different colours) upload more images/videos about it?
    Thanks ;)

    Actually like the plastic/glass back. If it was a tad thinner I would love this case.

    Are you using it with a 950 XL? How is handling compared to stock cover: more slippery, more difficult for reach tiles with thumbs or it's ok?
    Do the XL "moves" insider the case, or it sticks and stay firm?

    Could you post some new photos from different views (front, back, side)?
    Thank you very much.

    I just can't wait to receive mine. :)

    I received mine, it was broken when received but it was cheap as expected. Got a full refund from the seller so no big deal but I should have expected something like this for as cheap as it is.

    The plastic back feels super cheap, the metal housing is solid and sturdy. It actually makes the phone feel premium and the phone does not move around the metal casing. It's not anymore difficult to reach for tiles but one thing it does do is disrupt the signal quality you receive.

    Does the Qi charge still work with that back?

    Since the back is plastic the Qi charging function still works. I was thinking of doing some mods on the back cover though.

    Yes, but they will not be of good quality. I used a crappy phone (which I upgraded from) to take the pictures. Don't expect Lumia 950XL quality photos here. Ontop of that, yes you're seeing two different cases. One has a flatter metal bumper and the other one has a much more rounded one. The two have different style back covers. The sad part, I will RMA'ing my 950 XL to fix the 3.5mm headphone port. Something is wrong with it as it outputs garbled sound. Other than that I like my 950XL and will miss it while it is gone. I prefer the brushed aluminum cover more than the other crappy plastic cover. The crappy plastic cover already has a scratch on it but it's very hard to see in the photo because of a crappy phone camera on a crappy super low budget smartphone.

    Ah so there is two different style ones out there, the brushed back cover one looks good, anyway to make it fit onto the rounded metal bumper? :D

    You can make it fit but you will need to sand down the curves on the back cover of the flat style bumper. Since the two cases are very closely identical the flat cover almost fits perfectly except for the top portion. I like the back cover of the flat stye bumper case but feel the rounded bumper is much more sturdier.

    Bought one of these, immediately threw it into garbage bin. Horrible quality and the holes for camera, windows logo etc, my god they were made poorly and the Windows logo was hardly on the right place. Not even worth the 4 dollars. Oh.. The back "cover" also hardly fit and had a gap, couldnt make it fit while the phone was in.

    My silver one has arrived. Yay! Some impression: aesthetically it's beautiful, very premium. In hands, aluminum frame is real solid metal, very nice feeling and grip (the phone does not move at all inside it), and the plastic back has a "glass feel" to it that I really like, and make it Premium to touch too. Overall my 950 XL feels very premium in any sense. What I didn't like: logo cut-out on the back is un-aligned and **** me off, there are some very minor creaks when squeezed and maybe (but I'm not sure) the aluminum case make average radio signal a bit weaker than before. Overall: For 4$? VERY happy of my purchase, and I will keep it for a while ;)

    I disagree, the metal bumper is solid and of good quality. The only bad thing is the misalignment of the Windows logo. Otherwise everything else was aligned pretty close. The back cover fit, I had no gaps in mine. It was worth the $5, don't expect too much. The bumper of the rounded case is very sturdy.

    I disagree with you too. For $4-5 it is quite well worth it. The bumper itself is of superb quality. Especially if it's just a temporary one such as just using it on a trip. It will protect the phone. I do agree that the cut-outs are not aligned very well and that really irritated me, but it's cheap and I didn't really expect much else out of it. I have it as a backup to other cases when I go on trips.

    Looks like the 950 versions are aligned correctly and the 950 XL versions are off centered.

    Yeah, but 950s have an hole at camera button, while XLs fill that with proper case button. I vastly prefer that to the un-aligned logo.

    Pretty happy with it on my 950 XL actually.

    So with everyone complaining about the bumpers cheapness my only concern was the back cover. After feeling it and picking it up for several months I decided to modify my back cover. I wasn't able to cut the Windows Logo hole as well as I would've liked but it turned out slightly better than I thought. The texture from the modification to add the carbon fiber style makes the phone feel slightly more premium than the slick plastic back feel. I'm considering ordering a few more of these cases and modding the back.

    I really like the sturdiness of the metal frame but I don't really like the back plastic cover quality.

    A slightly better shot to show the texture detail.
