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! …

Love this bumper!
I absolutely love this product, and I have tried a lot of bumpers. The iphone 5S is so beautiful, why would you want to cover it I absolutely love this product, and I have tried a lot of bumpers. The iphone 5S is so beautiful, why would you want to cover it up? This bumper looks great while only covering the edges. Everything you need (buttons and attachments) are still accessible. The feel is great with softer plastic around the edges to allow it to grip so you can set it on an angled surface for instance, and a harder plastic in the middle. The plastic looks nice - doesn't look cheap. Some have complained about the top button being hard to push. It is certainly harder to push than with no cover, but I don't think it's too bad given the advantages offered by this bumper.
I use mine in combination with a Zagg HD invisishield on the back and the new Zagg glass on the front, and this bumper is compatible with both. The only way the phone could look better is if I had unlimited funds and left it naked and exposed. …

I would give it 0 stars, if I could.
This is the worst piece of junk I had the displeasure of using in a long time.

This is the worst piece of junk I had the displeasure of using in a long time.
You need to be a body builder to have enough strength in your fingers to press the tiny volume or power buttons on it.
Completely unusable! And I am not a small guy.
A 1 dollar Chinese no name bumper is better than this.
They obviously spent more money and attention to design the fancy shmancy case than the product itself.
I would send it back if I would not be out of the country.
Apple, shame on you for selling this. Just avoid. …

Good quality, poor design
The quality of this product is actually quite good. The materials used are top-shelf and it's solidly built.
The problem is the The quality of this product is actually quite good. The materials used are top-shelf and it's solidly built.
The problem is the design. The sides of the case are very smooth and almost greasy feeling. This makes it somewhat slippery when holding your phone in your hand. In fact, if I lay my iPhone vertically in my hand and use a very loose grip, it slides down very easily. Other cases I've used have much more grip.
The other big issue are the button covers. The on/off switch at the top is very stiff and requires an unnatural amount of force to sleep or wake your iPhone. The volume buttons are also very stiff, with very little feedback.
The case itself is a little too padded overall, make for a bit of a wider grip than I would like. If your primary concern is to have maximum protection in a bumper, I think this offers it, but you'll have to weigh that against the flaws noted above.
Overall, I cannot recommend this case - especially at this expensive price - because of its glaring design flaws. There are much cheaper bumper cases that are available, and though they might not last as long, they offer a much more user-friendly design. …
