    Good product, but...

    • Written by from Irvine

    This is a nice case in terms of fit and appearance-and I like how it actually looks like an organic part of the phone. However, after a few months of use I noticed that the plastic parts leave abrasion marks all over the metal band-- especially on the buttons where there is constanct contact. My phone's metal band now looks like it has scratches/marks all over it which I was trying to prevent with this bumper in the first place.

    Dirty!

    • Written by from Bowie

    I enjoyed the bumper for about a week. It becomes discolored very easily. A few times in the back pocket of your jeans and it's done. Now the soft rubber part is starting to peel off. I would love this product if it was constructed better.

    Only supports apple headphones

    • Written by from austin

    This case, as attractive as it may look, will protect your phone to an extent, but if you are a music lover like I am (my main selling point of the phone), you want a case that supports all kinds of headphones. Unfortunately, this case only supports the white headphones apple provides, which is rather counterproductive considering the change from the first model of the iPhone, to the second which provided a flush headphone jack allowing you to use any kind of headphones. I would recommend this case people who only use apple headphones. Otherwise, I would advise you to look at other cases.

    Could've been Cheaper!

    • Written by from Revere

    I'll admit, it does protect your iPhone 4. Whenever my phone falls, there wont be a crack or scratch! But when i put it on a table (like at a cafe) or place it somewhere, after 3 days it will get FILTHY! I dropped my iPhone on the sidewalk and picked it up, i inspected it to make sure its ok. All i see is that my bumper is dented/scratched in the rubber part. also it got soo dirty... All im saying that $29.00 wasnt worth this. maybe $15.00!! P.S. This goes for all the colors except the black bumper!

    Decidable.

    • Written by from Flushing

    The case itself is not bad at all. I had dropped my phone with the case on several times maybe 3 times to be exact and it turned out fine. The case and my phone most importantly, was fine. The white bumper looks amazing on the white iPhone, it just looks like the phone alone without any case and that's what I like.

    Cons about this case is..
    1. The white rubber gets dirty really easily. I had this case for about 2 weeks and I am babying it. My case was starting to yellow in about a week in and rubbed off some redness from a shirt I had on my bed while I was sleeping and I guess it was buried in..
    2. The price is pretty expensive for a bumper. Self explanatory.

    Overall this product is not bad but just wouldn't recommend white if you want to keep a clean looking iPhone or iPhone case.

    pretty good

    • Written by from Golden valley

    I have had the white bumper for about one year. It looked good and it continues to work well, but has two noticeable issues:
    1) It won't drop in to any dock with the bumper on, and taking it off just exposes the phone.
    2) The bumper's rubber edge is destroyed by normal wear, particularly in and out of pockets. It is totally shredded.

    That being said, it is still the most protective of the not-chunky cases/bumpers, so I will probably get another.
    It's quality is not at a $29 level - more like $9.

    Nice but...

    • Written by from Wimberley

    Have had this since the phone was new last summer, and the only real dig I have against it is simple: I like using the charging stand, but even this minimalist protector won't let the phone seat properly into the charging stand to activate charging or sync. Kind of a drag to pay for the charging stand and not be able to use it.
    Suggestions? Anyone?

    Won't stay clean

    • Written by from Doylestown

    This is my second one. The white is impossible to keep clean. It has turned grey in just a few months. I mean it's white, what do you expect, but for a cheap piece of plastic that does not last, 29$ is quite expensive.

    Rubber fades to yellow

    • Written by from Lawrence

    The case looks nice... but after 6 months the white rubber turns yellowish. At least I got it for free when they offered them.

    Serves purpose, but shows wear within a month

    • Written by from Ankeny

    I purchased the white bumper for my white iPhone 4S. It works well to protect the phone, but the light gray rubbery part of the bumper wears quickly (I've only had it less than a month) and gets discolored. Mine is turning blue from putting the phone in my jeans pocket. Be aware of this before you buy the white bumper!

    Good but not very durable

    • Written by from Petoskey

    I got this bumper Oct 2010 and it was great! It had a good grip and it shows the front & back design of the iPhone elegantly. The elevated buttons added to the bumper definitely helped. The only drawback to the buttons though is that the top button can be too sensitive. It's July 2011 and I had to buy another case, but not a bumper. Last month the rubber part deteriorated from the plastic part. And like everyone commented, it does tend to scuff/scratch the silver sides (which is no biggy for me). Overall it's a good case for gripping. But with heavy usage (case taken on/off to plug speakers, and in/out from front pockets) the durability is a 3 out of 5.

    Not worth 30 bucks

    • Written by from Wood-Ridge

    I have a black iPhone 4s and today I bought the white bumper which looks nice. All of the port holes are fine however, after opening the box I discovered the rim is gray and only the center band is white. I wanted ALL WHITE. Having said that, it is nicely made but it slides on surfaces (my clear universal case for 10 bucks stays where you put it) and it is slippery in your hand. No problems in and out of my pocket. Way overpriced at 30 dollars plus tax.

    Blue and White review

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I own both the white and the blue Bumpers and I am conflicted in my rating. The light colors pick up other colors very fast. Such as if you carry them in the pocket or sweat off of your hand. They both fit a bit loose. Other than that they are ver good looking cases and do the job they were meant to do. it will be close to impossible to find any accessory that will fit with the bumper on.

    especially not for women...

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I have the white bumper on my white 4s...looked great for about a month. I am continuously cleaning it because it gets make-up on it, picks up whatever is/was in my purse and tranfers color from jeans when it's in my pocket. It's a great case if you dont mind cleaning it!

    its alright; not perfect

    • Written by from oak park

    this item at first was GREAT!! then 1 month later i took it off and the metal band on the iphone was all scuffed up. on top of that, the case doesn't fit all chargers, only the ones that came with the iphone 4. it does have a good grip which is alright and keeps the phone looking thin. i would recommend it to people but buyer beware of its issues!
