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. …

Great Product! Lightning connector fits fine...
I was interested in this case because i really like the bumper case idea for the iPhone. 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! …

Practical but inelegant in black with the 5s
Fits very snugly and found no issue with buttons being difficult to press. However on an aesthetic level the black bumper does not Fits very snugly and found no issue with buttons being difficult to press. However on an aesthetic level the black bumper does not look great on the black/space gray 5s. That's because space gray has a warmer hue than the bluer charcoal grey of the black bumper's perimeter. Creates an unfortunate color clash when you look at the back of the phone. …

nice case, but pricey and doesn't work with Amazon Basics Lightning cable
I bought one of these cases yesterday at my local Apple Store, because I had the bumper case for my iPhone that Apple gave away ba I bought one of these cases yesterday at my local Apple Store, because I had the bumper case for my iPhone that Apple gave away back during the antennagate scandal. The Tavik bumper is beautiful and feels just right.
The two strikes against it are that it costs $30 (similar cases on Amazon cost $10) and the Amazon Basics USB-to-Lightning cable doesn't fit in the phone's plug when the case is on. …

I also like that it doesn't cover up the back of the phone; my enclosed case for the iPhone 4 would trap dirt and other pocket detritus that would scratch and mar the back. I've also had brand-name cases where the finish would chip off, glued-on components would become unglued after just a couple of months, etc., but I anticipate none of these problems with this bumper.
The power button is a little tough to move, but it's not a big deal. Also, as other reviewers have pointed out, the cutout for the headphone plug is too small for some plugs, and it's not easy to peel off the bumper. Otherwise, it's perfect for my purposes and my phone feels less fragile. …
