    When I got my iPhone 4s I went through probably 5 or 6 different slider cases from incase (because I had an incase slider for my 3gs and loved it) ... but not a single one worked right. Either it didn't fit right or it had camera flash issues. So eventually I just bought applecare+ and bought an Apple bumper.

    I have become very attached to the idea of a bumper style case. It helps for drops, it makes it grippy in my hand, doesn't cover the back of the phone, has lay on the table for both sides, and allows for it to grip on angled surfaces!

    I was sad to see that Apple isn't making a bumper case for the iPhone 5 (which I will have mine on Monday).

    The next best thing I have found so far is this:

    Does anyone have any other possibly good ideas for a bumper style case since Apple isn't making one?

    I'm also looking for a black iPhone 4 style bumper. I will probably just order one from Amazon.

    Like you, I'm also interested in good bumper case To protect the edges of a screen protector and provide some protection to the edges and corners w/ the least amount of coverage to obscure the phone's design. If I don't find one I like, my phone will just go naked.

    I like the bumper in the link you provided. I wish they had more colors.

    bumper scratches

    i want a bumper for my iphone 5 but everytime I used a bumper on my 4 or 4s (even the legit apple one) it always scratched the aluminum edges really bad and left weird marks which I really dont want with my 5... if anyone is using a bumper let me know if you're seeing weird scratches

    Get a spectra wrap (clear, thinnest iPhone wrap out there).

    Then get a bumper. Problem solved.

    Spigen bumper case video

    Dunno if up yet but I found this vid which shows how the new spigen bumper case fits onto the iphone 5. Looks nice and well fitted, but would help if I could understand what he is saying.

    Installed the Neo Hybrid EX last night...
    I love the screen protector and the back protector. The bumper itself is ok, not sure I love it or if I'll keep it on...it does add some bulk, but also adds protection. I do worry that it may start to peel the protectors off, but I hope not.

    I think that's the poetic bumper case. Should be on amazon.

    I don't think the poetic bumper case comes with clear sides. I think it's just the generic Chinese knockoff.
