    Wouldn't use any other case!

    • Written by

    When I first got my phone 2 years ago, I wanted one of those girly, pretty cases. But after speaking with the sales people at the Apple store, I decided that I would rather protect my phone than have it look pretty with a broken screen. One of the associates recommended the bumper to me as it isn't as bulky as cases like the the OtterBox, but protects the phone just as well. I was skeptical because it's just a rubber lining that goes around the phone but decided to try it.

    I am now about to buy my third bumper and couldn't imagine using anything else. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY BUMPER! I've dropped my phone countless times (several times on to the concrete from at least 3ft above the ground) and my phone still looks as good as new. Granted, I never take the bumper off to actually inspect my phone, but the screen has never cracked, and it still runs just fine.

    I recommend the case to EVERYONE AND ANYONE who's looking to protect their phone but doesn't want the bulk of those uber protective cases.

    I will say that sometimes the rubber picks up ink off newspapers or dye from my clothing, but you can easily just wipe that off. The rubber is also awesome because it makes your phone stick to different surfaces. I put my phone on the dashboard of my car when I drive and it doesn't slide or fall off when I turn or accelerate, which is great. Being a student, it also clings nicely to my books when I carry them around.

    This review is now way too long but I sincerely believe that everyone with an iPhone should have a bumper. I replace mine once a year as it does get some nicks and scratches from my constant dropping it on the floor, but the $29 for a new case is a lot less painful than whatever a new phone would cost.

    Just an extra FYI: I do not use a screen protector on my phone and it doesn't have a single scratch

    This is my second one! Love it!

    • Written by from Stillwater

    I set my iphone on top of the car and drove to work; about three miles. When I got there, I couldn't find my phone and used Find My Phone to locate it at my work's address!

    After looking and looking I finally went to the car and found it there! The rubber part of the bumper kept my iphone from falling off the car the entire way.

    Recently, I lost it and here I am getting another! ...nothing else for me!!

    Love it!

    Simple and amazing.

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I bought the pink bumper for my iPhone 4S about a year ago because I wanted a case with minimal bulk that didn't detract much from the aesthetic of the phone. When I received it, at first I was a little worried that the bumper would not provide very much protection, because it does not fully encase the phone (front or back) and is made of a hard plastic material. But since I had already paid $30 for it I figured I would give it a shot.

    The verdict, after one full year of use: BEST ACCESSORY FOR THE iPHONE EVER. I drop my phone probably 2-3 times per week, and there is not a single mark, scratch, crack, or chip to be found, and I don't use any other protective gear (i.e., invisible shield, etc.) other than the bumper. The thing that makes the bumper a surprisingly good case is that it has a slight lip around the edge that prevents either the front or the back from directly touching hard surfaces. Its hard plastic design keeps the bumper from coming off the phone (it easily slides in and out of my jean pockets and never snags or tugs at the edges). AND this bumper is actually manufactured by Apple, so it is designed with metal buttons for the power and volume buttons, which make them as responsive as they would be without a case. Also, the color and shape have held up beautifully. There are some little scuffs from all the dropping, but it's still very sturdy, shiny, and bright pink.

    The only drawback I have found is that some non-Apple manufactured cord jacks don't click into place with the bumper on (for instance, my iHome connects to my iPhone with the bumper on without issue, but the jack in my car has to be wiggled around a bit to make a solid connection).

    • Written by from Orinda

    i got this case because i know that apple has good cases, and this was no exception. i bring my phone everywhere, and my iphone dosent have a single scratch, the bumper protects the screen as well as the sides and the back of the phone. the bumper/case its stylish (i have a black iphone and a white bumper), and i havent even got a single scratch on my iphone. it is not that bulky, and ads style to the phone. i recommend this case to everyone with an iphone.

    Dropped new 4S flat on face from 5 feet and...

    • Written by from Buford

    Phone and bumper were fine. I was worried since hard wood flooring but a relief.

    It is better than most cases I've had (5 and counting) by keeping phone back exposed, and phone is much more cooler in temp. I also like the grippy nature of the rubber...it will keep the phone stationary in my car on the dash.

    The case is PERFECT to keep Apple's poor design of a phone made out of glass in your hand and not sliding around and dropping. For that I await the 5 and hope it's not glass or aluminum...both which are slippery in hands.

    So I like it....I've dropped my phone twice and let this bumper take all the abuse...better than the other option.

    White iPhone Bumper

    • Written by from Beverly

    I bought my bumper with my phone over a year ago and it still works great! The case has not disintegrated at all and provides protection for my phone. I have a Ghost Armor full body shield which prevents scratches and the bumper protects it from drops. The only issue is the white becomes discolored in the pockets of my jeans but then returns back to a grayish color.

    Cute case!

    • Written by from Cinnaminson

    I got this bumper when I first bought my iPhone in pink. It is made of plastic so it keeps the edges of the phone protected, but I would be afraid to drop the phone because there is little to no protection with this bumper. It really is just for the looks in my opinion. It does the trick of dressing up an otherwise boring black iPhone.

    VERY pink ... Love it anyway!

    • Written by from Prince George

    So awesome! Was a little worried at first but this bumper protects my iPhone famously. I thought it would arrive in a bubblegummy pink, but it's practically glow in the dark neon! Oh well, haha. I ordered it maybe 1 or 2 month ago and hasn't stretched at all or retained any dirt like other reviews claim. Thanks Apple, I will be buying this in more colors for sure!

    Great looking and functional

    • Written by from Ukiah

    The Bumper is great looking and functional. It is simple and all functions of the iPhone are not negatively impacted. Mine is orange and really accents the look of the black iPhone. The function buttons are extended with the Bumper
    which are built into it.

    I love the bumper! I have all the colors! One color that I would love to see is purple! The scratches don't really matter to me because your gonna have the bumper on anyways so no one would see it. It fits in my iHome perfectly and I have a verizon phone. I've dropped my phone tons of times not a single scratch. This might be one of the best accessories ever!

    Am just now replacing after a year

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    I have had this case since the day the 4g came out. I am rough on my phones and cases and the rubber just now started to peel away from the plastic portion of the case. The case won't protect the phone from severe abuse, but it does a good job protecting it from day to day use and wear and tear.

    Still Looks New

    • Written by from Hercules

    I got the black bumper the day of the iPhone 4 launch, and I was later reimbursed for the $29 because Apple was refunding the cost due to an antenna issue at that time. My bumper still looks new and there is no discoloration that I can see. I put a Zagg film on the front and back of the phone and the bumper covers the edges. I have dropped my phone, but this little bumper prevented any damage. I don't have any problem with charging the phone either, so it must just be with the Verizon phones that this is an issue. I agree, though, that $29 seems a bit much to pay, but I've read that cheaper copy-cat versions may look the same, but soon start to fall apart.
