    I've always been a bumper fan...I've tried so so many cases and I always go back to the Apple bumper. Needed a change though, as the bumper has been through war.

    Found these really sweet bumpers from Caze. Surprised nobody has reviewed this case. This bumper is slimmer than the Apple bumper, feels great in the hand, perfect slim amount of lay on the table design, and will work for the 4 and 4S.

    Cutouts are great as all my headphones work great...hated that SGP hybrid and Apple bumper were so small.

    Got 2 for $30 which is the same as buying one OEM Apple bumper

    I'll add more later, but wanted to share pics with everyone

    Enjoy

    Thanks for the review, I didn't know these existed.

    How did you get 2 for $30? Right now each one is ~$23.

    I was looking at this one also. I've been going back and forth, but ultimately went with the DNA case. I think that I am gonna pick this one up too later, though. Nice to see some live pictures. Thanks!

    Wow looks great. Too bad I just bought the Desmay tho, but I might get this one too in white for my White iPhone 4s. Anyone with pics of the white Caze on white iPhone? I'm not sure I like the "tab" tho. Is it removable?

    Map, I can see you've got a screen protector on the back but I can't tell if you do on the front (I would assume you do if you've got one on the back). Do these play nice with screen protectors?

    BTW, thanks for the pics! I'd never seen these before, but I really like them! :D

    Interested to know if these would work with the beveled metal back replacement. That might look pretty sweet.

    Does this still have the lip to protect screen and back? Also can I get it shipped to the UK?

    The red tab is the part that connects the bumper together...really like the design. Black case came with the red and black tabs, the silver case came with the green and silver tab.

    It pieces the case together..nice simple design IMO

    Yeah Kentucky, I've got sgp crystal on the front and back...no probs with these screen protectors. I would imagine PS protectors (same great quality) would work too. Don't know about the cheapo thicker ebay ones.

    Yes it has the perfect amount of "lay on the table" design for the front and back. Check your UK ebay store...should be able to find them.

    Thanks, Map! I may have to give one of these a go and see how I like it. And I use PS Anti-Glare HD protectors, so that's good to know that they'll work with them. Thanks!

    So the little square piece locks the case down onto the phone? Is it a good snug fit? What does it look like before you put the square piece on?

    that's correct...it's a very nice snug fit (also works with lucky lab wraps)

    tough to explain what it looks like so here's a video someone did of the case

    there's a video review out there showing the red paint rubbing off of the tab onto the white case...any indications of that so far?

    no wear at all so far...haven't used to long, but will monitor and update later

    only downside I can find so far is the sleep/wake button is a little tough to get to...doesn't bother me really as it's kind of protecting the button really well

    both the black and silver cases I have are a matte finish..feels great in the hand and doesn't get caught in my jeans/shorts like the apple bumper did for me

    Too bad I just bought the Desmay thin case, but this Caze doesn't look bad at all. I might bite for it, since the Desmay won't give my iPhone any drop protection. Are the White Caze and the Clear Caze are made in the same material? Do you have any pics of them on a White iPhone 4S? I'm kinda torn between the two. Also, on the website, it says that the White comes with the Red and green "fastener", can I get a red and white instead if I decide to go with the White Caze?

    Case looks great. Might have to pick one up. Just found a bunch on ebay. I use a bumper i got off ebay now with a belt clip. Wonder if this would work with it.
