    Are you using the Apple Bumper case? & if you are how do you like it?
    I'm not sure if it's enough protection for my phone.

    It's okay. The bumper does get lose over time though.

    Used one when they first came out, however, there are way too many more cheaper and better bumpers out there. Check out www.casewill.com

    I used one at first, then went otterbox, lifeproof, e13ctron, seidio, casemate now back to apple bumper. Just ordered a sgp neo hybrid…

    The apple case is nice but it will scratch the metal band if not cleaned regularly. I ended up putting a ghost armor shield around the band. Has worked with all above cases.

    Mine has not.


    I've been using a bumper on my iPhone 4 since I got it near launch almost two years ago. I also have a screen protector on the front and back of the iPhone. The combo works well.

    Apple iPhone Bumper

    Got my white Apple iPhone Bumper With metal buttons for volume and power, two-tone colours and a combination of rubber and moulded plastic, Bumpers add a touch of style to any iPhone 4S or iPhone 4.It looked awesome.I suggest pick the white one, because the bumper in white really looks good on the iPhone.Panasonic DMC FH25K

    You can get Apple bumpers on Amazon for about a $1 or $2. ;)

    A friend of mine has one of those that is two colours (white and green). But other than that it looks and feels exactly like an original Apple one. I suspect Apple's factory has been doing some 'extra work'.



    Anyway I use my black bumper to isolate my alarm clock from my night stand. There's a buzzing noise in there that resonates in the stand and the bumper shuts that right up. I tried using it on my phone a bit but I came to the conclusion that I really don't like covers and stuff on my phone.

    I have several bumper cases from Apple. Some people think it's too expensive for a case, but I still love apple's bumper cases because it always feels nice to decorate an apple phone with apple accessories. Feels like completing an apple look on my iPhone.:D

    No. You can get the exact Apple ones.

    I've got a genuine Apple Bumper in black but only used it for a day. Felt the need for a bit more protection than it provided so I went with a Contour Design hardshell case in black.

    I used a bumper when I first got my iPhone 4, but it picked up small pieces of grit that scratched the antenna and it fell apart after about a year. I've been using the replacement iPhone I got in November without a case.

    I use iPhone 4 and much prefer the iPhone 4 design without the bumper.

    I have a bumper, and for a minimalism-type case, it works very well. It might not protect your phone as well as some larger cases, and some might suggest a screen protector if you are prone to scratches.

    However, it does do a great job with helping you hold your phone, and raises your phone up a bit so the back and front don't get scratched up by the table. Do beware if you use non-Apple headphones, for the port is a bit small.
