I hope metal case isn't impeding reception. There were already glaring examples with Apple and ASUS around metal cases impeding reception, so HTC should have been very aware of issues and possible solutions regarding signal reception and metal cases. Will be interesting to see more reviews and people's real world experience as more production model One's end up in people's hands in order to see if this is a consistent issue across the board on all production devices (which would hint at a design flaw).
