    It's good except

    • Written by from Rochester

    I bought the white one and it certainly does its job.
    I dropped it so many times and the bumper took all the hits. My phone doesn't have a single scratch. The only bad thing about the white one is that it only looks good for about a week and then the rubber part turns gray. It doesn't look bad, it just looks used and dirty. I'm thinking of getting the blue one.

    Not Bad, Actually

    • Written by from Raleigh

    Contrary to most of these reviews that you will read, the bumpers are fully functional on several dimensions, and the white looks classy on the black iPhone. The bumper protects the important parts of the phone, while also serving to better the call reception by protecting the antenna. As long as you are not completely destructive with your phone, this is enough protection for putting your phone down on most every surface. The ports are all perfectly accessible, and the volume keys work great. I have had my phone and bumper since Christmas and have not noticed any scratches on the sides of the phone from the bumper, and it is still very much white.

    Don't read too much into the skeptics, this product is well made; far too over-priced, but well made.

    Sweetest case

    • Written by from Villa Park

    I am a new iPhone owner inspired by using the iPod touch, I bought the bumper the day i got the new phone, black bumper on white iPhone does look that good. i think thats the case with every cover. doesnt kill the beauty of the phone (by just 10-20%) making it more think on the edges. feels great good grip and yea the black bumper doesn't fade or look ugly by wearing out!

    Great Overall Product

    • Written by from Bend

    I love this case! It protects my iPhone but does not feel bulky like a normal case. The only downside is that my iPhone lives in my jeans and the case is tinted slightly blue. However I have heard this goes away if you use magic eraser. Overall it is a great case for someone who wants their iPhone to remain slim.

    Surprised me when I dropped my phone

    • Written by from Brentwood

    I borrowed this from my boyfriend when my other case broke, even though I do agree with others that it is a tad overpriced. Mine is black and hasn't changed colors but my makeup has become a permanent fixture on it for sure. The main reason I am writing this review is because I have been very careful not to drop it since this bumper doesn't offer front or back protection quit e up to my liking. However, I did drop the phone on the floor of the MALL the other day and to my surprise, it actually bounced because of the bumper. Needless to say, it has zero damage and even though it kind of pulls my hairs out, I wanted to review that it does, in fact, protect the phone more than you would think.

    All about looks, not protection.

    • Written by from Happy Valley

    Ok, I'll get straight to the point. This case is great for looks, and not so great when it comes to durability. I have a white bumper and it looks great on my white iPhone. However, the plastic chips off very easily, and on top of that, the rubber peels off after some time. Overall, it's a good case, but if it's durability you're looking for, then this case is probably not for you.

    Finally!!

    • Written by from Ossining

    Finally a case that looks good and doesn't get stuck in your pocket by grippy rubber like some other cases (the black Bumper). This case is by far doesn't offer the most protection for your iPhone but enough for the average-careful iPhone user

    Comfort *****
    Looks *****
    Protection ***

    Great but a little pricey

    • Written by from Houston

    I got the white bumper. Had it for 2 months. The gray part around the edges tends to pick up a lot of smudges. Would reccommend a different color if that disturbs you. I have drop my phone twice and my phone was protected! No worries there. I take out my bumper weekly and I do not get any scratches on the metal like everyone else say they have. Overral I like it. Just wish the product was cheaper but overrall satisfied.

    Very Good

    • Written by from San Jose

    Bought this bumper shortly after the purchase of my white iPhone 4. Overall it's a great bumper. It does not scratch the metal band around the phone. It protects the sides and adds a lay-on-table design.

    However, there are 2 flaws. Number one: The headphone jack opening is too recessed for some of my connectors. Kinda annoying. And Number Two: The rubber part discolors over time. I've had it on for a month and the rubber band has gotten dirty. However, I cleaned it with a Magic Eraser and it looks much better. Again, kinda annoying, but not a huge problem.

    So, if you take good care of it, by all means, get it!

    Good

    • Written by from Tucson

    Apple's bumpers for iPhone are a good solution for the phone's antenna issues, and for keeping the glass from being scratched when the phone is set down. The only problem with the bumpers is that they put a slight amount of pressure on the lock and volume buttons, making them easier to depress. This can be an issue if the phone is in your pocket. I had to modify my bumper and remove the metal over the top lock button because it would turn the screen on from slight pressure.

    Besides that, they are sturdy, nice looking, comfortable in the hand, and protect the phone pretty well.

    Still the best

    • Written by from Hackensack

    Tried so many cases and covers, but nothing bets the bumper. It's an ideal mix of protection and minimalism. Currently using the white one for my white iPhone 4S, and nothing comes close in terms of suiting the product better than this. Would have given 5 stars if it had been a little slimmer and the bottom dock cut-out been not so sharp edged.

    So far so good

    • Written by from Key Biscayne

    Just got the bumper in black,feel safer yet wish it came in clear to really keep the sleek Iphone industrial look, this why so far I had refused to get a case that covers the complet design of it.
    Wish I phone 4s would come in steanless steel, or metal gray at least, for a more modern cutting edge look.....

    Slim and Protective

    • Written by from Avondale

    I use this on my white iphone 4s and it looks great.. finally, a case that doesn't take away from the phone! I have the invisible shield on the front and back so I'm not really worried about scratches on those areas. Minus one star because I had it in my back pocket and the drk blue jean color transfered onto the gray area, it doesn't look that bad though.

    Not a bad case

    • Written by from new castle

    This is one of the best cases I could find for my iPhone, the white case does get dirty overtime but it happens to every case, if you drop the phone the case scratches the metal band, but other than that it's a good case... So 4 stars

    Definitely Recommend

    • Written by from Delhi

    I've purchased 3 (white, black, & pink) for my iPhone 4 (AT&T) and it has truly helped. I've dropped my phone repeatedly on all sorts of surfaces and from various heights. I have never had a crack, dent, or scratch from these drops. I know it doesn't have a screen protector, but after a year and a half with my iPhone 4, I have very minimal scratching.

    I agree with others' remarks regarding the discoloration of the white one. I also had this happen, but the pink and black ones maintained a quality appearance.

    I would definitely recommend. I will be purchasing more for my iPhone 4S when it gets here (The original AT&T cases aren't compatible, which is VERY frustrating...).

    Looks great on white iPhone

    • Written by from Chicago

    This is a good buy for someone who prefers the look of an iPhone without a case at all. It makes you feel like you're giving the phone some protection, without covering up the design. I've had this case for about two months and the rubber around the edges does get dirty, but a damp paper towel removes about 90% of that. Overall, while I'm not sure if this case will last me an extremely long time, it seems to be protecting the phone so far and looks great on the white iPhone.

    Great

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    I personally don't like most cases that are made for the iphone 4. So when I came across this bumper, I decided to try it out since it showed off my white iphone so beautifully (plus I've dropped my phone twice and the bumper completely protected it). I've had it for about 3 months now and the only bad thing I can say about it is that the grey rubber gets dirty quite easily. I'm going to repurchase one soon just because I love it so much. I'm only upset about the fact that it's a 30 dollar product that should be replaced every 3-4 months. Otherwise, I'm happy!

    Great Case

    • Written by from Bronx

    I've read plenty of negative reviews on this case and still decided to take a chance on it. i've had it for about 2 months and have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. The only thing is I've purchased the white one and it tends to get a little dirty but still manages to show off the "sexiness" of the iphone. It hasn't scratched my phone like it has for others. I just hope apple decides to come out with more colors, for example, a red one would be awesome!!!
