    To my knowledge...none. I've had both on all my devices with zero issues. That type of problem would likely occur with the material used to make the device. For example: The problem that the iPhone had..because of where the antenna was located.

    Plastic or leather will have no effect.

    I do have a flip case which has a metal frame around the outside under the leather. This has no noticeable effect on the cellular signal, but does affect GPS reception (and the compass!), so I prefer not to use that one when navigating :)

    The flip side is that it does however offer more protection than my case-mate, so it still has its place for me.
