Nice, I saw this last time browsing AliExpress but didn't want to be the Guinea pig. So, I just put in my order :) Thanks

Wow looks like the real one. I just started using my real bumper. Thinking of getting a silver to try. How long it takes to ship to US?

Did you ever get it? How is it?

Yup got it. I like it, just the feedback or lack there of, is keeping me from using the bumper. I don't think its a knockoff issue as people complain about the real one too

How is the feedback for the volume buttons? Mine were perfect with the genuine case. The power button was the only one that had feedback issues and after some messing around with electrical tape I could still slightly feel/hear the "click" from it.

That is a great price. I've been looking at the genuine flat bumper and the lowest price I found on EBay was $50. For $7.00 this is worth a try.

can you post some pics, kind sir? :D

I don't have pics of the case on my iPhone 5 as I am using the phone to take these pics. I didn't want to bust out my DSLR for these photos, but hopefully this helps.

Yup exactly how this fake one feels, there is feedback in the volume buttons but the power button has little to no feedback (very hard to tell if power button was even pressed).

Right now I am using a generic clear/black bumper as I am not fond of the button feedbacks and the overall sharp edge feeling of the fake power support bumper

rom my experience : it looks great. feel great. perfect fit.

the only down side is the buttons are really hard to push. very little feel if anny at all ( i feel like i'm going damage the power button some day...)

I just started using my bumper today. I like it now that I had to place some electrical tape underneath the notches for the volume and power buttons. Now I can feel the feedback (hear it click) when pushing the buttons and feels great now. Before it would feel like I have to push with all my might to push the buttons

Mine took like at least 4 weeks, maybe more. I paid for Swisspost instead of free shipping and it still took forever. They take forever to process then it has to pass China customs then US customs then it seems like the turtle delivered it from NY to CA.
