White bumper too easily stained
I purchased the white bumper case for my gold iphone 5s, wanting to protect the phone while still showing its gold design. This b I purchased the white bumper case for my gold iphone 5s, wanting to protect the phone while still showing its gold design. This bumper seems to protects the phone well, but it gets stained way too easily. After only a few days of using the bumper, I noticed stains appearing all around the rubber edge of the case. I believe it is coming off from the red lining of my purse...it seems to be rubbing off on the bumper. I changed the purse that I use but stains are still appearing. It looks really bad and it's been less than two weeks of using the bumper. I expected some staining would eventually appear since it's a white case, but this is unacceptable. I tried to clean the stains but nothing seems to work. Needless to say its made my beautiful new gold iphone look very unattractive. Quite disappointing for a $30 bumper.
So a word of caution - if you get this bumper don't buy the white one! …

Below average. Not quality enough to be featured on the Apple Website.
Pros: Protects Well
Cons: Very hard to press the power/volume buttons even after three weeks. Gets stained and will not clean. Ph Pros: Protects Well
Cons: Very hard to press the power/volume buttons even after three weeks. Gets stained and will not clean. Phone is loose within the bumper. Slick edges make it easy to drop.
I understand there are some poor third party bumpers/cases out there. This bumper is OK, but I expected more for the price and the fact that Apple was featuring it.
The buttons (the power button in particular) are hard to press. I'm a fairly strong male with large hands, and I have to hold the top and the bottom of the phone just to get the power button to initiate (I can do it using only one hand, but it is awkward and difficult, so sometimes I use to or hold the bottom of the phone against my body while pressing the top). It's still difficult after about three weeks of use, and now it's too late to return.
I agree with the over review, I"m disappointed by how easily the white gets dirty. I expected it to get dirty, but I expected it would be easy to clean. It is not.
Also, the bumper isn't quite as tight as I'd hoped. When I hold it, the phone shifts slightly. That's really annoying and makes the whole experience seem cheap.
This bumper is also thicker than I had hoped (but that's not really a bad thing due to increased protection), making the phone look a tad childish.
The sides are too slick. It's easy to drop.
On the positive side, my phone definitely feels safe inside this bumper. It protects well.

Looked good at first, but within days the white started turning a urine-like yellow around the edges, which could not be cleaned off.
Also somehow picked up scuffs of different colours that could not be removed.
Grippy enough, but the buttons are hard to push with this case on.
I wish I could score it a "zero"; it's that bad. …
