    In For The Long-haul!

    • Written by from Escondido

    By far the best case for iPhone 4! Incomparable to any other when combined with: Front/Back screen protectors. I have had this one for over 3 years!! It's in it last lim. My phone has been dropped countless times, as others I'm sure. Where other cases have failed me, the bumpers pull through...

    Worth It!

    awesome case!

    • Written by from Etobicoke

    I wasn't really at first that the bumper would protect my iphone, since I am a disaster and I always drop my iphone somehow... My bumper lasted me 2 years, and I must say that if it wasn't for that bumper I wouldn't have a phone right now. You always need to be careful where you put your iphone because it could get a scratch, but if you put it in a separate pocket, and far away from coins and keys, the iphone should be perfect.
    The bumper absorbs pretty good the hits, my phone has fallen in all different ways and still it looks like new.
    My reception has been the same always.
    I have a cheap car charger that works great with the bumper on, and actually I have tried different chargers, and they all go great. Maybe there are exceptions, but I have seen any yet.
    Also, I have tried several different headphones, and they have all plugged properly.
    So, in my case there aren't any complains!
    I which Apple would make it for the new iPhones too!

    Protection without the bulk

    • Written by from Atlanta

    This case makes the phone easier to hold (harder to drop) and gives it decent shock protection. Doesn't protect the screen (obviously), but that's not what I was searching for. I don't like having a case on my phone but I'm the last person that should carry a naked iPhone. This case has saved my bottom a handful of times and I don't have to fuss with plastic screens that dull the sensitivity of the phone. Would highly recommend but not to those searching for maximum protection or screen protection.

    Great case

    • Written by from sparks

    The case feels good in the hand, protects the device greatly from broad impacts (ex. Floor drops, slamming onto surfaces) It shows of the beautiful design if the iPhone. I don't see what others are talking about when they give the case 1 star reviews. But what can I say, "haters 'gonna hate".

    Just right...

    • Written by from east hampton

    The iPhone 4 is a amazingly small and light phone, just too slippery. This bumper allows for some grip without too much change to the look and feel of the phone. Fits great. Solves the antenna issue. Still goes in and out of a pocket with ease. Works perfectly with the Arkon vent mount.

    Great case

    • Written by from Pearl River

    I got tired of bulky cases of which I have had many trying them out. Granted, I have never dropped my 4S with any case, so I can't say if this case provides the same protection as others. In light of that, the Apple bumper looks fantastic, fits tightly on phone, as close to carrying it "naked" as you can get, yet still provides drop protection and has a good grip. The wife has a 5 and would love to have one, but it's not availiable. If you are rough on your phone, maybe choose another. My favorite case so far.

    Amazing

    I bought this from the 5th Avenue Apple Store 1 Year ago and I only used it on my iPhone 4S. I have to admit it is a little bit bulky but really does protect it from falls and hits.

    worked perfectly for me

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I've had the same bumper since January/12. It's finally worn out, the soft rubber has torn and it's time to be replaced. I think the durability is excellent. It's lasted longer than a lot of other cases I've had. It's protected the phone well from numerous drops, and I really like the minimal bulk and profile of the case. There are some very minor surface signs of wear in the aluminum band, but nothing beyond what would be expected for a device that is constantly being handled. I'm sorry to see that Apple hasn't designed one for the iPhone 5, which is on my wish list.

    Brilliant design - complaints seem mistaken

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Everyone agrees that the iPhone Bumper is well-made, leaves all functions accessible, makes the phone more comfortable to hold, helps it stay put on inclined surfaces especially, etc, but there are also some complaints that make no sense to me:

    [Complaint 1] No protection for the glass face and back. The raised rubber edge actually provides excellent protection to the entire device, including front and back, against impacts with flat surfaces - desks, floors, etc - which would seem to be the main hazard. It's no help at all, of course, if you smack the glass against a small convex object (a car's bumper, similarly, is no help, eg, if you drive into a truck's lowered tailgate). Lots of protection with a very small footprint, I think.

    [Complaint 2] The bumper scratches the antenna-frame. After more than a year, there are no scratches on the frame of my iPhone, and I don't how there could be: stainless steel is very tough, and could not be scratched by plastic. If some sand-like abrasive were caught under the bumper the frame might get scratched, but if you blame this on the bumper, then you should also credit the bumper with protecting the screen form trapped sand, because it doesn't cover the screen!

    Does Its Job

    • Written by from East Amherst

    snug fit, very streamline, and is definitely the best looking case there is. and for the people on the fence because the back is uncovered.... the most important part (the front) is uncovered at all times. and unless you drop it on the edge of a stone, the rubber guarders will absorb the shock.

    As far as durability goes, i haven't had a problem. however, my cars auxiliary cable and my headphones fit well through the hole, which is literally a millimeter larger than the headphone jack itself. That being said, i never have to take the case off. so theres really no wear.

    Other cutouts are nice, metal finished buttons are high quality and feel nice. but there is no cushioning on the inside of the case, so it scuffs the metal band, giving it a somewhat polished look in spots (if you leave the case alone, it won't do much)..have dropped the phone when my hands were full many times, and the case has saved it, so i'm going to say, because my accessories fit, because of the impact resistance, and because of the appearance, buy the case.

    Perfect for me.

    • Written by from Bolingbrook

    I bought the black bumper and I love the look and feel of it. It has a minimalist design and fits snugly onto the phone. It is really grippy so it doesn't slide all over tabletops. It is a little pricey, but it is worth it. I bought a white one too.

    I really liked this case, it saved my phone many times I have dropped my phone face down on concrete as well as in the street and my screen was unharmed. This case also hhelps with the AT&T iPhone 4 Untennae problem.

    Excellent protection for your iPhone

    • Written by from Easley

    I've had this since the iPhone 4S came out. At first glance, it seems like minimal protection. However, I've had my phone fall out of my hands onto the street a few times and I've always been relieved to see it bounce around with no scratches. About a year ago, someone tried to steal my phone and after they realized they wouldn't get away, they threw the phone about 10 feet in the air and 15 yards away against an irregular stone building. After it bounced off the building and hit the ground, they smashed the phone with their boot before running away. Aside from a small gash on the side of the bumper, there was only a tiny cosmetic scratch about a half an inch long on the back of the phone itself. The metal frame of the phone and glass front were completely unharmed. For $30, this is well worth having to protect your phone from drops without a bulky case.

    Excellent case

    • Written by from Manila

    The Apple Bumper is a well thought-of case. I personally don't like bulky cases and cases that cover the back of my iPhone. Also, I'm very picky with whatever I put my iPhone on. My bumper's colour is black - I like to keep it simple yet elegant. It looks great, I tell you!

    However, if you're very artsy, I recommend you to get one of the neon colours, specifically blue or green (orange and pink looks cheap in my opinion). I personally don't recommend the white bumper because not only does the rubber get very dirty easily, it turns to yellow overtime. Every salesman I went to in stores didn't have it in stock because of the bad reviews.

    If you're looking for something that would protect your iPhone from damaging falls and accidental slipping, the Apple Bumper is right item to get! I'm really happy with mine and for months, I haven't put on any of my previous cases - that is definitely something.

    My bumper has been on my iPhone for months and it hasn't gotten any loose. Perhaps it depends on how you treat your phone. If you keep switching from the bumper to another case then I'm sure it's bound to loosen its grip.

    I ensure you, the moment your bumper's attached to your iPhone, you're never going to look for any case again. It's perfect for me.

    Apologies for such a long review, but I hope it helps nevertheless. Enjoy!

    Best Product for me!

    • Written by from YOUNGSTOWN

    I've tried others covers which I couldn't stand after a week, I found them to be bulky, hefty, and slippery plus I like to put my iPhone in a shirt pocket or pant pocket. I hate belt clips.

    After 2 years of use on my iPhone 4, it finally needs replaced. I guess 29.00 is not a bad cost to protect a $600.00 phone. What I like the best about my bumper, is it STICKS to surfaces like glue including cloth. It's never slipped out of my shirt pocket and my friends are amazed when they compare their case to the bumper for slipping or sliding on a surfaces (including glass & paper) thats not absolutely horizontal. No wonder they need a bullet proof case! I also find my iPhone with the bumper far more lighter and compact with the bumper compared to the cases I've tried or seen being used by my friends. Note: In two years my iPhone has never been dropped!

    I can understand why a woman would find the bumper not lasting very long being carried in today's purses (which are like small suit cases). The bumper would take a higher degree of abuse rubbing against so many other objects.

    I believe the bumper is a highly effective product for the right use.

    Best iPhone accessory I've owned!

    • Written by from Columbus

    First, let me say that this is only a bumper and NOT a case. Yes, it is used to protect the rim of the iPhone, but do not buy this thinking it is a case meant to protect against a 40 caliber bullet...or a 4 foot drop (Whichever comes first). This is simply a way to personalize your phone. The iPhone offers a slim and sleek design and this bumper helps maintain that appeal and yet adding a little more protection along the edges and rim of the iPhone with a plastic rim and rubberized raised edges. I purchased a front and back screen protector to go with the slim bumper that does not take away from the shine of the glass yet helps me feel better about the open space on the back of the phone and it getting scratched. Not only is it sleek and simple, but it also maintains the warranty of the iPhone since Apple makes this product. It slides in and out of your pocket easily as if the iPhone had no case. The rubber edges allow it to remain firm on a slick surface and also allow you to feel comfortable to lay the phone face down on the table due to its raised rim. One of my favorite parts is the fact that the volume and on/off buttons are covered with an attractive silver button that maintains the original appeal of the silver buttons of the iPhone. I say if you love your iPhone and want to take advantage of its slimness and sleekability (new word) than I dare you to purchase this bumper. You wont regret it!

    Favorite Case

    • Written by from Chicago

    I love this case. Here's why: it is a bumper so most of the phone is still visible. Also, the buttons are still metal. The bumper wraps around the front and back of the phone so I can set it down without fearing it will get scratched. Finally, it provides enough protection to keep the phone safe. I dropped my phone with the bumper on. Although there are a few signs of the drop on the bumper, the phone it self is in pristine condition. I love this bumper. I was hesitant to buy it because people said it starts to look bad and scratch your phone - neither of which have happened to me.
