    Poor Quality, poor design, over priced…

    • Written by from London

    This bumper does its job, it boosts the signal, acts as a buffer if the phone is dropped and helps in stopping general wear and tear - however there are some serious design flaws in design and materials

    Due to the nature of white i expected the bumper to mark reasonably quickly but having used it for 3 days I already feel embarrassed taking it out of my pocket. Its already filthy attracting every possible stain, especially the dye from dark denim.

    The thickness of the bumper also means that only certain types of headphones and accessories can be used with it, so my €150 apple store bought headset is unusable.

    I'm extremely disappointed with this item its a complete waste of £20.

    I am so happy with this bumper! I was worried how delicate my iPhone 4 was and how it could break easily but with the bumper i am fear free and i have dropped it many times not from great heights but on hard surfaces and i dont have a scratch thanks apple ;)

    For a few weeks I loved this case, especially as I got it for free with Apple's case program. Then it started to peel at the bottom and now the rubber has torn significantly. Because of this, I took it off for a while. It wasn't long until I noticed the bumper had caused moderately visible marks on my phone. They look like they have rubbed of a layer of some sort, leaving a slightly shinier area. They appear in all areas where the case makes contact, including around the side, and a lot of them around the sleep button. I shall be returning the case for a replacement and mentioning the scratches to Apple at the Apple Store. Google "damage iphone 4 bumper" for images other people have uploaded. Mine looks like them.

    One of my worst ever purchases.

    • Written by from St. Neots

    Sure, it looks nice - but I just paid £26 to instantly lose compatibility with a raft of headphones, chargers and various accessories; and it doesn't even offer much protection for my iPhone.

    I buy a lot of gadgets; this is one of the most stupid ways I have ever wasted £26. And it hasn't even begun the promised falling-apart and phone-scratching yet. What a flunk!

    This bumper thing is absolutely rubbish! It has actually scratched my I phone more than it would if I didn't have one as I compared it to my friends who hasn't got a case. I've never dropped it but I keep it in my pocket but the inside of the bumper is hard plastic and has actually scratched the metal sides of the phone really bad! Do not get this rubbish!

    really apple?

    • Written by from winchester

    I got this bumper for free in order to resolve the signal problem with the iphone 4, and to be fair it did solve that problem. however it lasted for about a month before the flimsy rubber gave way and tore around the edges especially where the charger plugs in. Also it seems to have scratched the silver band around the edge of the phone, this is only cosmetic but still.. the rubber itself is grippy meaning it can be a pain to slip in and out of your pocket. overall though as a basic case its OK. however only lasting about a month before it broke i went to buy a new one.. then i saw the price. 26 pounds? really? for a flimsy bit of rubber prone to very quick wear and tear? no thanks. I think ill just hold my phone with 3 fingers when on the phone instead of a bear grip to avoid signal drops :)

    Nice fit, but does not last long!

    • Written by from Shoreham by Sea

    I got this bumper free from Apple, to fix the "signal" issue. When new, it fits the phone very well - as you would expect - but they are definitely not very durable.
    My bumper is about 6 month old, and the rubber is now coming off, and it is starting to get loose. I went to buy a new one at the Apple store, but nearly fell over when I saw the price! Definitely not worth this amount of money. I might have been tempted at half the price.

    Got this free with the give away to solve signal problems. I was glad I did not have to pay for this as it snapped where the charger plugs in causing it to become lose around the edge. It is also impossible to use other headphones/adaptors unless they are from apple. In order to use my car stereo plug I have to remove the case!

    Over priced for what it is!

    Started off well...

    • Written by from London

    I got the bumper as part of the free programme last year, but it has rapidly fallen apart over the past few weeks. Headphones and speakers were a nightmare to the point that I just carried my old iPod around with me too.

    I wanted to get a replacement but £26 is hideous for a piece of rubber. I could probably buy an entire tyre for a similar price, not to mention an actual phone.

    You get what you pay for.

    I've spent lots of money on inexpensive cases for my white iPhone 4s, and they've all had their problems and ended up being abandoned. They deform or they discolour (or both), or they just frankly spoil the look of your lovely white phone. So far I love this bumper. It looks really stylish, and the metal buttons are very classy. It's rigid and I can't see how it will deform. So far I've had no discolouration (which means it's already beaten my last Hard Candy case). This isn't really designed to protect your phone, but rather to make it easier to hold (we all know the iPhone is a terribly slippery beast) whilst also looking gorgeous. You get what you pay for, and I think if you want a good quality bumper that might just last more than a week this is probably the thing to buy.

    Quality Average, Price Aweful

    • Written by from Sheffield

    I purchased one of these in the meadowhall store in sheffield, had the product 2 weeks and it is already falling apart, its dirty, and makes the phone look shocking and cheap. Not worth £26 if maybe £10 at most....

    Surprisingly Good

    • Written by from Newport

    When I got my iphone 4 the first thing I thought was that it needed some sort of case/protection, decided on the bumper as I liked the look of the phone so didnt necessarily want to hide too much of it. Read the reviews on here and was a little put off as they were quite mixed, but, I have been pleasantly surprised, I bought the white bumper (as I have the white iphone 4) and it has been great - yes I have to remove it when I am using the iphone in the car (charger/USB) but it is so easily taken on and off that it is not really a problem, liked it so much have now bought one in black as well! Also, I can use the apple headphones on mine with the bumper on.

    Scratches the band around the iPhone

    • Written by from Bradford

    At first I really liked this bumper, it looks good and protects the iPhone. Or so I thought, its been on my phone for about 2 months now so thought I'd take it off to clean the phone properly, the case has left marks along the stainless steel band! This is a disappointing product and I'll be calling up Apple about this!

    i've had 2 Apple bumpers now and they were both terrible! not only does it let dirt into the case which scratches and stains the metal surrounding the iPhone 4 but also the bumper cracks and bends out of place and the colours fade very fast! i wouldn't recommend this to ANYONE!!
