  • Really nice - actually better than Apple's iPhone 4/4s bumper in some ways

    This is a very well made bumper. I've used it for a month and the fit is still very tight - no stretching at all and it's held up This is a very well made bumper. I've used it for a month and the fit is still very tight - no stretching at all and it's held up extremely well.

    The Tavik bumper is very similar to the bumper Apple made for the iPhone 4/4s with a few exceptions:

    1) The power and volume buttons are rubber not metal
    2) This bumper does NOT have the problem where the rubber stretches around the headphone jack and makes the bumper fit become looser overall over time.

    My only gripe is this: The power button, when the bumper was brand new, took a lot of pressure to actually power on/off the phone. It has since "broken in" and operates as expected - easily turning the phone on/off. It's the only reason I knocked it down a star.

    Otherwise, excellent bumper. Maintains the thinness of the iPhone 5 or 5s. I have had no problems having it work with the standard apple Lightning Charger. Fits nicely.

After reading the previous review about t I was interested in this case because i really like the bumper case idea for the iPhone. After reading the previous review about the lightning connector not fitting, i went to my local apple store and checked it out first hand. I am not sure which connector the other person was using, but the apple lightning connector fit perfectly. As for the case, the feel is great and it looks awesome on my black and slate iPhone 5. My only complaint would be that the lock button looses its tactile feedback with the case on. However, this seems to be fairly common across all cases i have used!

    I was super excited about this case having had the former iPhone 4 Apple Bumper and was told this was the next best thing.

    PROS I was super excited about this case having had the former iPhone 4 Apple Bumper and was told this was the next best thing.

    PROS: Excellent protection for your phone and feels great. Tactile enough to make you feel like your phone isnt going to slide out of your handle, yet smooth enough to relatively easily slide in and out of your pocket.

    CONS: I put this case on the day I got my 5s. Eigh months later I had to take the case off as there wasnt enough clearance for the headphone jack for me to plug in my Car Auxillary cable. AND...I have tiny scratches on my phone! Now, I know that dirt particles can periodically creep underneath, but the extent of the scratching leads me to believe that TAVIK could have designed the interior of the case to be more protective.

    Overall I'm disappointed that I bought it to protect the outside of the phone all the while damaging (in my opinion) the areas it was supposed to be protecting.

The edge adds just enough to protect the front and back surface when laying flat, and the material adds just enough grip to help avoid accidental phone drops. The grip is not so sticky that it picks up pocket lint, etc.

    Unlike some of the reviewers, I have had no issue with pushing the power or volume buttons. I went to the Apple store to test before I purchased and was quite pleased.

    The black bumper looks stylish on my black iPhone.

As advertised, it protects my phone without it feeling too b This bumper is everything you could need in a protective iPhone case. As advertised, it protects my phone without it feeling too bulky or covering up the entire phone. It also protects surprisingly well for a case covering only the phone's edges. I'm a huge butterfingers and (unfortunately) drop my phone on a pretty regular basis, and this bumper seems to have protected my phone from any harm every time.

    I've had the bumper for about five or six months, and it has sustained a couple of scrapes and dents around the edges from drops, but the color (mine is blue and black) still looks good and the bumper still fits snugly as well. It's been an excellent first case for my first iPhone. I have heard some complaints from others who have this bumper about button stiffness, but I have not experienced any issues with mine.
