    Is someone get some founding on iPhone 5C Bumper? I may get a 5C bumper as the 4S bumpers did the perfect work...

    Think you won't need one with the one-piece back and sides construction of the 5C.

    Look at the pictures in the video of the internal construction, the outside part now works like bumper did for the 4S.

    I would think since the 5c is plastic, you wouldn't need a case at all. I think cases became more prevalent with the design of the 4. People were breaking the glass.

    Plastic still scratches.
    The 3G scratched. So I personally would still get a case.

    The 5C is using additional coatings that the 3G/GS didn't have. It should be far more scratch resistant.

    It wouldn't work in the same way it did on the 4/4S since there is no raised antenna to keep it in place.

    I probably would as well, but the plastic back on the 5C should be pretty tough compared to the previous 3G/Gs phones. Its not supposed to feel plasticky either.

    FWIW, one of the reasons Apple's case is so expensive, besides it being an apple case, is that the inside is lined with microfiber.
