Apple Bumper for iPhone 4

24 Mar

At $29 per, this is not a cheap case.  On the same point, the bumper is an excellent addition to any iPhone 4.  Since it comes directly from Apple the quality control is near perfect and the addition of the metal buttons (for both volume and power) provide an extra level of luxury that most cases don’t.  The band sits tightly on the phone and even after 4 weeks of use, it has not gotten any looser since the day I bought it.  Paint and actual construction still looks brand new.

It is important to note, some users are experiencing issues with the Bumper leaving marks on the silver antenna of the iPhone itself.  We have not experienced this problem yet (please comment below if you have experienced this issue).  The bumper provides minimal protection, since both the top and bottom glass are permanently exposed.  We suggest the addition of a wrap or skin to provide an extra level of protection (Images show PhantomSkinz Matte Wrap on Back of iPhone). If you are on the fence with the Apple iPhone Bumper, we suggest taking the leap–as long as its not from too high.  It comes in Black, White, Blue, Green, Pink, and Orange and is available at the Apple Store.
