    Perfect Design + Great Grippy Bumper

    I purchased this bumper after getting tired of encasing my 4S in a very bulky Otter-box defender case. While the Otter-box is great protection, I have never fully enjoyed the compactness and thinness of my 4S fully since owning it. With this case I can now fit my phone in a shirt pocket! Very protective cases are just so bulky and heavy! Which kind of defeats the purpose of owning a compact iPhone, not to mention always having to open rubber plugs to get access to a port and swiping being blocked by case edges. After trying out another heavy case, the Ballistic Everyone case, and then having it get dirt under screen protector and getting some scratches on screen anyway, I just decided to quit worrying about heavy protection and bought this bumper. I don't think I would ever use the 4S without anything on it at all, because it just feels slippery to me. This bumper solves my problem since it preserves the design and beauty of the phone and offers protection with almost no bulk. I love how the power and volume buttons on bumper are exact stainless steel copies of the ones on phone. This makes the bumper much more visually appealing and still highlights the design of phone rather than hiding it. But better than how it looks is how it feels in hand, the bumper adds a much needed ergonomic by having very nicely rounded edges with grippy rubber where it meets front and back glass. It just feels really good in hand and much less prone to dropping. Rubber also keeps phone grounded on your desk or work surface without sliding around since its raised above surface of phone a few millimeters. I have had it for several months and it has held up well. It provides some protection from drops if surface dropped upon is flat. If you take good care of your phone this is enough protection. I thought I would have many scratches on screen without a screen protector, but the 4S is way more durable than one would think. I have no visible scratches after using this for months. Some complain of this scratching the stainless bumper of phone body, but it has not done any damage to my phone. The bumper fits snugly and perfectly compliments the design of phone, and fits much better than third party cases or bumpers. On a final note the white looks great on a a black or white phone, but rubber portion gets dirty fast.

    Perfect Fit and Functionality

    The iPhone 4 Bumper is the perfect companion for the iPhone 4 or 4S.
    What the pictures do not show you is the nice glossy finish on the bumper, as well as the chrome buttons. The inside of the bumper is a soft rubber, which is comforting to know that your iPhone will not get scratched going into our out of this case.

    Combine this bumper with a screen protector + protector for the back glass, and you're good to good.

    One thing to note: With this bumper on, the iPhone will not fit into Apple's official iPhone 4/4S Dock.

    Love it

    I love this case. I wanted to show off my iPhone 4 not hide it, so I decided to buy this case even though I wasn't sure how much protection it would offer. Well it has worked great. It has protected my iphone, even from drops, and still looks like new. I've had the case for over 9 months now with now problems. I will never, ever use any other case!

    Works Really Well

    I have been using this case for 2 weeks. It fits the phone snug and is relatively easy to install and uninstall. It maintains the sleek form factor of the phone. My only criticism is that the headphone jack is recessed and small diameter, so good luck getting any headphones besides apple's to fit. This is a great case to have if you own the iPhone 4 dock, again due to ease of taking the case off.

    Good Purchase

    I love this case. It highlights the design of the phone and is very protective. I've dropped my phone a few times and the bumper has saved its life. In the past 5 months I've had little problems with the case. All of my headphone jacks and chargers fit with the bumper on. It even fits into my iHome which is very convenient. I am starting to notice a tear or two in the rubber so I may have to replace it soon, but it hasn't become a problem as of yet.

    iPhone bumper is the best idea

    I've been using the iPhone bumper since I purchased my iPhone 2 months ago, and my opinion this is the best protection case which covers minimum of the iPhone so it won't cover the beautiful design of front and back of iPhone and the best thing is that yhe bumper elevates the iPhone's front and back body from the surface so it won't get scratch although the glass is anti-scratchable I didn't even apply the transparent film protector. After using the bumper for two months and today i removed it while writing this review, I scrutinized my iPhone and it doesn't have any scratch on it. I am proud of u Apple and adore u Steve Jobs may god give u and ur company more n more success.

    Perfect for a minimalist case

    This case has a nice snug fit and provides the perfect amount of coverage for light drops and when laying down on a table. The rubber edges stick out just enough you can lay it down on each side and the glass will not touch the surface. Also the rubber makes it non-slip. The overall case is simple, light and mine has survived a nice fall on the road on the corner of the phone with no damage to the phone. Also very easy to pop off to give the phone a good cleaning. Great case for what it is. Certainly not for the person who drops their phone a lot or is careless about where they put it. Otherwise, looks nice and works great.

    LOVE THE BUMPER - ignore negative reviews

    I never write reviews but i thought i would chime in about this one.

    Obviously this case doesn't protect the back ... if you buy this and then complain about this feature you are an idiot.

    Things i love about the bumper:
    1. minimalistic
    2. rubber edges - phone wont slide around. Especially useful in the car or on a smooth surface
    3. iPhone will ever touch the surface because both sides and all edges are raised
    4. buttons are classy and not recessed like other cases
    4. fits perfectly

    Things i dont like:
    1. Expensive - If this were $10 like it should be, you could buy a few colors
    2. Recessed vibrate switch is hard to get to

    Comparisons to other cases i have:
    Incase slider - Scratches the glass when you slide on and off. Lint gathers around edges. Bulky.
    Incase snap - Piece of garbage. Will crack and hardly protects anything. Save your money.

    Overall i think this is the best case you can buy. Sure, its not going to protect your phone if you drop it while bear hunting in the forest; however, for everyday use it doesnt get any better.

    A little pricey but worth it

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    Simple and the Best

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.
