The Apple Bumper is frail near the USB port and it's so easily discolored it's annoying!

What other reputable options are out there for white bumpers, or cases? The USB dock needs to accept other types of adapters so it can't be restrictive.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I was looking at that case.

Some questions:

Does it get dirty easily?
Do the buttons feel cheap?
Does the bottom portion near the USB opening feel frail or like it may crack?
How wide is the USB opening, because I have a few non-Apple third party USB plugs!

Thank you!
It's a glossy white, so it doesn't really attract dirt and if it does get dirty it would be easy to wipe off.

I don't think they feel cheap, and are responsive.

Build quality is pretty good, don't think it will crack. As for the opening, I'm not sure if it's large enough, but I have not had any issues.

Cool okay thanks,

Do you find dirt gets easily caught in the sides in-between case and phone antenna bands? And does it come with screen protectors - what's the quality of these like?

Dust does get in the nooks, like right now I see a little bit around the mute switch, but it's easy to remove and clean.

It does come with a front and back screen protector. I'm not using the back since I have a Phantom Skinz matte, but the front is really good and highly rated around here.

I only wish they made the case hug the phone more! I'll probably still buy it.

Thanks!

Hmmm ok, then how is it that dirt gets trapped in the edges :confused:
I stated I could see dust around the mute switch because there is a cut out there. This could also happen for the speaker and the dock as that's the only other cut outs. As for the edges, I have not had an issue of dirt there.

Here are my choices. If you want a bumper type case, go with SGP Linear EX as mentioned above. Best bumper out there, hands down. For a case (covering back), I like the SWITCHEASY Eclipse in white, great feel, slim but protective and at a great price!

Thanks for the feedback from both of you.

I think I'm sold on the SGP :)

What do you mean, "hug the phone more"? It's a tight fit, I could not even fit any side skins on it.
I think he means like the apple bumper hugs around the whole phone with lay on table design.

Best white case?

Look for glossy polycarbonate cases because soft/matte cases will turn yellow after awhile.

The incase white perforated snap case is a great choice too
