    It's okay... Needs design update

    • Written by from Renton

    This bumper is for the most part made of quality materials, but after 9 months of use the rubber has separated from the hard plastic. Additionally, the hard plastic has cracked in multiple places. Besides this product not lasting a long time (less than a year- $30 is expensive for a bumper), my biggest complaint is the opening for the lightening adapter, it is too small for most non-apple charging devices. Therefore, removal of the case to charge the phone is a must and can probably explain why the bumper has cracks in multiple places.

    Don't - You'll just return it.

    The case is hard plastic, very hard plastic. The control buttons are all of the same molding. There is no way no how you can use the buttons on the side of the phone or on the top due to how hard the plastic is and how the buttons and bumper are one molded piece.
    TAVIK claims they are " Visionaries " they should vision on how to redesign this case and destroy the current stock.

    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.
    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.

    Do Not Buy the White Case

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Purchased the white colored case for my white iPhone 5s and just three days later the non-coated areas of the bumper have turned black (front and back edges). A fairly expensive case that looks like it has seen better days in just the three it has been used for.

    In my opinion this is a design flaw. They should use a different material for the edges to prevent this.

    Poor case

    • Written by from Hinsdale

    Very difficult to turn on and off or use the volume buttons. The older version bumper was much better then this one. This is just a cheaper and poor quality version of the old one!!!! If you had the old bumper you will be very disappointed with this one!!!!!!

    One design flaw

    • Written by from Carnegie

    The opening for the charging port appears larger than it is. When you buy it, you think it will fit most chargers, but in fact, the opening has a little lip inside of it that reduces the diameter. The OEM Apple charger fits, but almost no other wall or car charger fits.

    OK if all you have are Apple chargers, but I need more flexibility than that.

    Great case if you have steel finger tips

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    You can not use the buttons on this case without hurting your finger tips. I resorted to using finger nails for the volume buttons. The case is solid but very poorly designed and it is unlikely to be on the market much longer until the button problems are resolved.
