    This bumper has saved my phone from damage by accidental drops. The bumper protects the phone well. It goes on and comes off easy. Worth the money!!

    A little pricey but worth it

    • Written by from Gilbert

    I had tried a few aftermarket cases for my Verizon iPhone but wasn't really happy with any of them. I was hesitant to throw another $30 down for another case but I have to say I'm really happy I did. It feels like a really good quality product, and I especially like how the power and volume buttons are built-in. I think this actually improves the design of the phone and makes it much more comfortable in hand and prevents it from sliding around when you lay it down in the car. I've only had it for about a week so I can't speak to how well it will hold up, but I haven't seen anything to make me think it won't. Overall i"m very satisfied.

    I've tried several cases and this one works best

    • Written by from Signal Mountain

    This case seems to work best out of the cases I've tried. It doesn't come with anything to protect the screen and it is true that dirt will get under it and scratch the metal band. I fixed this problem by buying the invisible shield maximum coverage which covers both sides of the iPhone plus the metal band. This seems to be the most effect way of keeping my iPhone safe. I have dropped it several times and it seems to protect it from any damage. I would recommend this case to anyone.

    Great Case!

    • Written by from Greenwood

    I own this case as well as an Incase Snap Case and an Incase Slider. I find myself using my Apple Bumper the most of the 3. Love it! It looks better than the other 2 on my phone and provides the protection necessary to keep my phone in good condition.

    It hasn't caused any scratches to appear on the rim either. The reason others are getting scratches on theirs is because they aren't taking good care of their phones. With any case you should periodically remove the case and clean the inside of the case, as well as the areas of the phone the case is against. Dirt/dust will get trapped in any case over time and can cause scratches if not taken care of.

    Only con is that the dock opening at the bottom of the case isn't quite big enough for some of my older iPod/charging cables, but I can live with that.

    Looks great, feels great, works great

    • Written by from Camarillo

    I recently bought the black bumper for my Verizon iPhone 4. The nice thing about the black Bumper is that it (1) doesn't stain and (2) it has a grippy rubber around the top and bottom, which is really nice so it doesn't slide around. But I was concerned about the small opening on the top for non-Apple headphones. Surprisingly, the small opening worked great for my Beats headphones, even though they have a right-angled jack.

    Overall, this product has been better that what I expected. Apple did a great job designing this case to complement their amazing device.

    sleek

    • Written by from Fairfax

    I have almost every color Apple bumper. I've never had ANY problem with it scratching my phone or scratching other materials. Protects like nobody's business, i.e. dropped my iPhone 4 GSM several times & each time it's kept it in perfect condition. Amazing how just this bumper protects the phone & makes it easier to hold. I don't want a lot of bulk with my phone cover & this is perfect for my back pocket or small purse.

    Ideal, aesthetically pleasing and protects

    • Written by from Mesquite

    The bumpers are ideal for protection because they lift the surface of the phone so that the glass never touches any surface. The replicated buttons have the same feel as the original ones on the phone. The plastic is also good because it allows the phone to slide in and out of pockets and/or other compartments designed to hold phones in purses, briefcases, etc.

    The bumper is perfect for people who want to retain the look and size of the original phone, yet protect their investment. If you want to be stealth, get the black; however, for those that need to find their phone quickly, choose your favorite color! Note: the type of plastic does not attract dust or animal hair as do the rubberized types of covers.

    Simple and the Best

    • Written by from Novi

    I have used my black bumper for a year now. Great case. Period. The edges provide a grippy surface so the phone won't slip out of your hand, it fits the phone perfectly, is the only case I've seen with metal buttons, and it is thin. The glass surfaces on the iphone4 are very durable against scratches and I have none. The case suspends the back off the table when you set it down and the two-shot rubber construction keeps it from sliding off the table. I got a Spek "rubber" case free from Apple and promptly took it off - clunky and slippery by comparison and harder to get out of my pocket than with the Apple bumper. Can you tell I like the case? I got a new Verizon iPhone for my wife and she loves the pink bumper too.

    Almost perfect!

    • Written by from Houston

    I read the reviews about the bumper scratching the steel band, so just to protect it i double wrapped the band with tape and then put on my bumper, looks amazing, and along with my invisishield my phone is completely scratch proof :)

    Ultimately the Best iPhone 4 Case!

    • Written by from MIAMI

    I just bought a new revised Apple Bumper case, it is a lot better! It has a much larger opening in the dock connector to allow for 3rd party connectors, which is what some people like :) I must say after trying 13 different cases for the iPhone 4 (AT&T), I always come back to this one, the fit and finish on the Apple Bumper cases are far superior to anything out there, the only other case to come close in fit and finish is Speck’s Pixel HD cases, those are nice as well. After trying 13 different cases, those are the only two I would recommend :)

    Follow these steps

    • Written by from Portsmouth

    So I was nervous to use the case after reading what everyone else had to say. Here is what I did, I bought one of those zagg invisi-shield which basically wraps the whole thing in a scratch resistant layer even the metal sides. So pristine Iphone is kept pristine, now the bumper is placed over to protect from... you guessed it, bumps or falls. In short, Great piece of the puzzle for the minimalist approach to preserving the phones aesthetics.

    Ignore the liars

    • Written by from Port Richey

    This case is great, if people have scratches on their iPhone, it is clearly because they are rough on the device and anything you are rough with with obtain scars. I have had this case on my iPhone for a month now and I have had zero problems with it.

    Protects Well

    • Written by from Cedar Rapids

    It protects my screen from scratches well, I have inspected it closely and cannot find any. It also prevents those dreaded reception problems when you hold the phone at all. I have to take it off to put the iPhone on its dock, but that's not that hard to do. I've also noticed that the inner lining has been scratching the metal of the phone, as other reviewers have pointed out, but it's not that noticeable.

    I love this case!

    • Written by from Seymour

    I really don't know everyone is getting scratches on the metal band around the phone. I have had this case on my phone since last June, and after reading these reviews, I removed it to check. The phone still looks brand new. I have dropped my phone a couple of times and this case prevented any damage from occurring. I also have not had any problems with connecting the usb cable, or my Bose headphones. I also have not had any problem with the case coming apart. All in all this case protects my phone without adding bulk, looks great, all without hiding the amazing design of the iPhone 4. I highly recommend this case, and would by another one in a second if mine ever did start to come apart.

    Great improvement to the iPhone4 ergonomics! Protects it too..

    • Written by from CLARKSBURG

    I've had the black bumper since July, and it's held up really well. The rubber edges and additional thickness make the phone less slippery and easier to handle securely. I've still managed to drop the device a couple times on smooth hard surfaces (no concrete yet, fingers crossed..) and neither the phone nor bumper show any damage, so the bumper seems to do its job. Pocket crud will slowly accumulate under the edges (just like any case), so every few weeks I'll take the bumper off and wipe it clean. I haven't noticed any of the scratching or deterioration some other reviewers speak of... not sure what they're doing to their poor phone. Overall I think it's a great product.

    Phone handles better, stays put on surfaces, corner/side impact protection

    • Written by from Stanford

    It's named "Bumper", not case.

    Given that advantage--and limitation, it is beautifully executed, and protects against side and corner impacts. The bumper is wider/thicker (front to back) than the phone, so the phone's front and back glass are kept a couple of millimeters away from surfaces on which you might set the phone.

    I like the way soft edges help keep the phone in place on an inclined surface or on the dash of a car. It similarly helps keep the phone from falling out of a pocket, though that makes it harder to pocket and remove.

    Caution: if you place your phone on a very rough concrete surface, surface irregularities in excess of a millimeter could make contact with the glass surfaces and scratch.

    Some reviewers complain about "scratches" to the stainless edges of the phone when using the bumper. As with any case (MacBook Pro as well), if grit (e.g. at the beach--quartz is harder than steel) is allowed to accumulate between the bumper and the phone, it can grind against the covered surface. Periodically remove the bumper and clean it in detergent and water and dry. Wipe the edge and glass of the phone. Replace. If not, the matte surface of the stainless edge will be "burnished" shiny or scratched and thus marred. I've seen it on others' phones, but not mine with the inside of the bumper kept clean.

    Improves secure handling of the phone. The iPhone 4 in the Bumper is the only phone I've never dropped, though I have knocked it off a table by the earbud wires onto concrete--no phone damage--though the impact site is visible on the bumper. Provides protection, but doesn't interfere with the silky feel of the screen. The surfaces in contact with the edges of the phone *do* need to be kept clean.

    I bought two in black, but am still using my first one--since the iPhone 4 introduction. I prefer it to the bulkier skin that I had on my 3GS, which trapped grit and scratched the phone. That experience (and the same with my first MacBook Pro shell case) taught me to regularly clean the bumper-phone interface. I'm very happy with the iPhone 4 Bumper.
