    Looks pretty good actually and clean, despite the absurd $30 price tag and recessed headphone port. The close connector is a non-issue for me though, all I use is Apple's cable.

    Looks like it has sufficient protection since it is raised against the front and back to take the damage.

    For real? There's like 300 threads on the bumper and its performance.

    Yeah, try searching Mroogle.

    But I will say that the bumper only protects the sides of the phone, so if you drop it on the screen I don't think the bumper will protect it very well.

    I think you'll definately need to handle one first before you buy - I'm a tad disappointed with mine, but they do offer a slight degree of extra protection, and good looks.

    If they were £10, I'd have no complaint, but for £25, it's a little difficult to sing its praises. I don't mind paying for stuff either - if it was made to fantastic quality, I'd even pay more... but it isn't, so the value-for-money meter is 'low' IMHO.

    All considered, I'm going to keep mine until the Otterboxes come out.

    On the contrary. The bumper causes scratches and nicks on the frame
