    Awesomeness without the bulkiness!!

    • Written by from Jupiter

    I only bought this because any case I got was a little bulky when I want to use a wristlet handbag. I haven't dropped my phone with the bumper on it, but its got to be way better than not having it in some sort of casing. Because I wouldn't use a case if I was using a small bag. I have a pink and white Speck case and kept seeing pink so I got the Orange one and it looks nice, but do wish there was a yellow one.

    Very nice

    • Written by from Hollidaysburg

    I really like the bumper. I was tired of covering my iPhone in rubber and plastic bricks. I never really got to enjoy the feel of the phone. The bumper gives a little more grip and minimal drop protection. That is the tradeoff if you want to actually see and feel the phone. I don't have filthy hands so no discoloration issues here. If it provided a little more protection, aside from being able to lay it on a table without the glass touching, I would give 5 stars.

    Pretty nice, definitely Apple worthy.

    • Written by from Pineville

    I've had the Apple iPhone 4 bumper (orange) for about 3 1/2 or 4 months at the time of this review and I must say it is a spectacular case for those of you who like to add a nice look to your iPhone 4 without sacrificing the beauty of the iPhone's slimness. Unlike the claims by other users this case has NOT scratched any part of my iPhone and I use it on a daily basis. There are pros and cons to this case, they are as follows:

    Pros:
    ~Maintains the iPhone 4's slimness while providing a fairly decent amount of drop protection.
    ~Many colors to fit just about everyone's taste
    ~Really attracts attention to show off your iPhone
    ~Durable, after many months of use there is no physical damage to the case and is maintaining its snug grip around the iPhone

    Con:
    ~Most third party chargers and headphones don't work while the bumper is on the iPhone
    ~If you get a bright color expect some minor discoloration after some time (the case does get slightly discolored from dirt but still looks very nice)

    Loses colour fast

    • Written by from London

    The case looks nice and fits snuggly. However, within a few days of use the softer elements of the case discolour badly and makes the case looks really grubby. I would recommend against buying one of these.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from WEYBRIDGE

    Within the first week of having this phone, I dropped it on asphalt while running and all it did was make a little mark on the case. I am yet to have a dropped call as well. I would also recommend getting a package of Apple's screen protectors (the anti-glare ones) and asking them to put it on. I have had my phone four months and the screen protector is perfect, I barely recognize it is there.

    The downside is that it makes it difficult to activate the vibrate switch on the side, but you do get used to it after a while.

    Does the job

    • Written by from Poplar Bluff

    I actually have the pink and the orange and have been satisfied with the products endurance. I like that it is smaller than most cases and doesn't impede the view of my iPhone. It isn't bulky and it doesn't take away from the beauty of the naked phone.
    However, I've been a bit frustrated with the fading and the attraction of dirt to the rubber. I don't like that the once brightly colored rubber pieces are now somewhat dull and seem to have a permanent dirty tone.
    The price is also a bit of a discouragement. When I really consider, I don't mind paying the money, however, I have to admit that at first I was frustrated at the idea that I was paying $30 for a product that seems so flimsy. After much consideration, I decided that the price was indeed worth it and have been very satisfied.

    Good fit, but fast discoloration

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Good fit: the top and side buttons fit. The bottom doesn't bother any of my 30pin connectors. The mute isn't centered and is hard to use with both a 4 and 4s.

    Color: the orange is actually 2 diff colors. The sides are a candy orange that I wish covered the whole thing. I didn't notice the 2nd color while in the apple store. It started as an orange sherbert color and after a week of use, the corners are starting to darken grey/black. A coworker's green bumper case of 9 months is showing a similar issue.

    useful but not perfect...!!!

    • Written by from Delhi

    Bought black bumper along with phone.
    Good:
    Usefull, better grip, and prevents direct contact of phone and other surfaces.
    Bad:
    Got scratch marks on steel band (c'mon, I bought original Apple accessory), started to crack after some time, narrow head phone jack hole, rubber edges of the bumper removed screen guard from several places on both sides.
    Final say:
    Not worth it!!!

    functional but discolours quickly

    • Written by from Vancouver

    good protection without much bulk--this and a screen shield will prevent the majority of scratches and other damage. also adds just the right amount of grip; makes it less likely that you'll drop it, but still slides in and out of pockets easily. i'm rather butter-fingered and have a tendency to drop things, but so far this has done the trick.
    HOWEVER: i've had this for twelve days and the softer rubber edges are already severely discoloured, particularly at the corners. i've tried wiping with a damp cloth and even a little dish detergent, but nothing has helped. it's unfortunate because this is a good product otherwise, but it already looks cheap and worn out. satisfied with the design but definitely not with the materials. if anyone has found a remedy for the discolouration, please let me know!

    Decent, but...

    • Written by from SUNNYVALE

    The orange in the picture looks like a nice deep orange. I got my case today and it's more of a neon color. Very distracting. I love orange, but neon is a bit too much. Not happy with the color.

    The price is also a bit of overkill. I got my last bumper through the free bumper program on the iPhone 4, but sold it with the phone. Didn't even realize it was so expensive!

    Best Case Ever

    • Written by from GDL

    I think the orange color stands by itself and i have no issued with the dock and headphone connectors, because i only use the ones from apple.
    It's also a beautiful design without adding to much bulk and it doesn't scratch the antenna.

    Five Stars if it fit my charger

    • Written by from Red Bank

    I got the case when I got my Iphone4 many months ago. No scratches to my phone & has definitely saved my phone when dropped. The only problem I have with the case is that it doesn't fit the dock to be charged standing. You have to take it off to sit the phone in the dock or you can leave the case on but you have to use the plug in feature instead of standing it up in dock. Who wants to take the case off every time to charge their phone?

    Worth the price

    • Written by from Linden

    Good case if you're a minimalist...doesn't affect the camera, and I hate using "skins" to cover the glass, it gets too tactile.


    Pros:

    buttons work great, very clicky
    has protected my phone from a few drops, not a scratch yet
    no scratching on the inside like I've heard from other reviewers
    works with Universal Dock with no insert well
    about the thinnest case you can get without just getting a "skin"

    Cons:

    mute switch gets hard to use, but you get used to it
    old Apple connectors and most 3rd party ones don't work

    Quality Control Problem

    • Written by from Atlantic Beach

    Received my orange bumper yesterday (4/11/12). The thin rim that sits up inside the large oval hole used for plugging in an Apple Dock Connector-to-USB Cable was too thick to allow the cable's connector to connect. I tried 3 different apple connectors ... all of the new style ... but none could connect. I cut out the thin hard-plastic rim with a scalpel and hole punch. So now it works, but the edges of the bumper that go around the long sides of the oval hole are weak.

    Mixed Blessing....... Best/Expensive but not durable

    • Written by from Naples

    This is the best protection case yet still providing slim design. It is very expensive for a rubber wrapped plastic band. My main problem with the price is the rubber banding separates from the plastic frame after several months... Granted my first one was for free thanks to the Death Grip issue, but now I'm hooked on the style and disappointed with the value!!!

    Looks great but gets dirty

    • Written by

    I love the color and the way it shows the back of the phone, and especially that it lets me put it down on a table without scratching the back, however after the first day the corners of the bumper started turning black. I can't get it off no matter what I do and it's kind of annoying. Also it has made small scratches on the two left corners, but they're not noticeable.
