    I was enlisted as a tester for this company and the product has been fantastic. I urge anyone looking for a decent bumper case to check these guys out.

    How can you say, 'a decent bumper' when they don't even have any pictures of it on their website...?!?!?!?

    It just shows a naked iPhone 5....!!!

    It's available to order. Doesn't look very special though.

    They don't even show pictures of the bottom cutouts. Way too shady. Probably another company branding Chinese bumpers as their own and bumping up the price.

    Looks like every other bumper you can find on ebay for $3.

    They need to hire a new photographer. Terrible photos. Shadows are blocked up, there's tons of noise in a lot of them...very little detail seen of the actual bumper.

    The point of product photography is to make your product look GOOD. I run a photography review site (and am a semi-pro photographer myself), and even for my reviews, I try and take the best shots of the gear I possibly can, and I'm not even trying to sell the product.

    This can't be real?

    Cheap eBay bumpers rebranded then hiked up to $20. That's crazy.
    The pics are a joke too

    I bought one of these when I was Australia as a temporary solution. There is not a recess, it is just a finish difference (matt and shiny). The bumpers are worth about $3 (in my opinion) and not worth bothering with.

    Of course when you are a part of a project you're going to talk about how good it is and everyone should check it out, it's marketing.

    Now when you say "I tested it" we should take your word for it even If we don't even know who you are? Seems legit...

    The pictures on their website look like it's made of cheap materials, but hey, who am I to say anything I haven't even tried it out.

    At least I'm being honest and not pretending to be a customer. I'm not making you take my word for anything.

    ----------

    The website's photos are meh, but I have tried numerous other bumpers and this is not another one of those fat, generic ones that everyone buys from China and sticks on Amazon for three bucks. How could they charge twenty bucks if it was the exact same thing? As soon as people figured it out they'd lose half their business.

    I never said you weren't being honest nor did I say anything about you pretending to be a customer.

    Power Support Flat Bumper is the best, even if it's quite pricey.

    It's the thinnest and stylist bumper I've used, definitely a step up from these normal bumpers. Power Support is also a reliable brand and IMO the best accessories malfuctioner of iPhone screen protectors (unless SGP glass) and cases.

    I'd highly recommend you see it :D
