    i think it will look a little less construction worker vest-y on the fabled white iP4

    Nice pics, I had a black bumper initially (still have it, black on black looks classy and stealth-like), but I wandered into the Apple Store yesterday and saw they had green ones so I bought one and I like it a lot.

    I think the green looks the best because its the main color of my football club.

    Does anyone else's colored bumper feel plastic around the borders? For instance, I had the black bumper and around the edges / the part of the case that touches the counter or table when placed on a flat surface it felt rubbery and provided grip. However, In my green on it feel "plasticy" <-- not a word lol and instead of providing grip it feels smooth. Wondering if any of you with colored cases can chime in..

    Yep, the plastic edges (if you want to call it that) are a different material from the black. Either that or the color treatment makes the material feel different. There have been other threads about this as well. I actually like the rubber on the colored bumper over the black. I just wish the fit were as nice as the black one :(

    Yeah it's been known now.

    Black - rubbery grip feel

    ALL colors - smooth plastic feel

    Both are rubber still because you can tell when you put on the case. However, the colors seem to be "stiff'er"

    Personally I like it better since the black always collected lint bad and I like the smoothness since I can slip it in/out of my pocket quickly.

    I'm always careful so some people might like the rubber grip feel to be more secure.

    That looks absolutely delicious. Wow love the lime green on black and it's my blog and YouTube brand colors. Nice. I really want to get a lime green one. Where r u based? Because i'v been to my local apple store in Leicester - UK and they only have black bumpers. :-(

    So, would it be safe to say that the colored bumpers would slide in and out of your pocket easier than the black "rubbery" ones?

    I think the green looks hot.

    I could be wrong, but I think I saw somewhere in this forum that the white bumper had the same rubbery feel as the black...

    Sadly, it doesn't. I really like the grippy feel of the black. It adds the extra hold that I want without making it hard to slide in/out of my pocket.

    Currently, I have the white on my phone, but I don't like the feel of it nearly as much.

    Is that a ZAGG you have on there? Looks nice, my IS looks awful after having it for a week or so, wrinkles and some peeling around the edges.

    I'm sorry but man that looks terrible. You get a pass if you're a female.

    Perhaps the difference in feel is why we're seeing mostly black in stores? Maybe the colored ones are harder to make?

    Only thing I can think of. Sick of all the stores only having black. I'm looking for orange and white.
