i've had one since the 4s launch and my phone is still in perfect condition. it keeps both sides from every touch flat surfaces, so no scratches, also the sides are a nice plastic, bit all rubber like the cheap ones that are hard to pull out of your pocket. and there is a thin rubber outside of that giving it some grip. i've had no problems with it. i have a green on my white 4s. i want a white one but i'd imagine white would show dirt easily. i never wanted a case because i wanted to show off my white iphone's aesthetics, i can still do so with this bumper while providing protection from being scratched, gives it a better in-hand grip, and adds virtually 0 bulk. sexyness who else is rocking the bumper, and what do you think of it?
