    Was once a sexy white iP4. White bumper looks good though (because it's not visible). Good if you want protection.

    I think that the white bumper looks nice. The rest do make it look cheap.

    Some need it to maintain signal, like me for instance.

    I can tell they're real, I'm just happy/surprised to see them! Thanks though, made my decision on what bumper to get with my iPhone easier.

    PS: Second white iPhone in the wild, hopefully that means preorders next week! :)

    I think its the white that makes the phone look cheap. Show some pics with black iPhones with bumpers for comparison please.

    You'll notice that the second photo with the iP4 in the cradle is the same room/desk etc. ;)


    I agree...even though the black still looks CHEAPER with bumpers. Of course anything but the original is going to look cheaper. You're not going to tell me that it the black phone looks the same quality or more expensive with bumpers are you? LOL :p

    Is anyone over the age of 15 really concerned with how expensive or cheap their phone looks?

    I got a bumper to try it for protection and to see if it would help with the antennae issue, which dropped me a a couple bars, but never actually caused a drop call or interruption of data.

    I was skeptical as I had always just had a screen protector on my iPod Touch and only use a case on my iPad for transport. I have always preferred the weight and feel of the originL product.

    I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I prefer the iPhone with the bumper opn. Not only does it offer some measure of benefit in the areas I was concerned about, but I alsp prefer the feel with the bumper. It makes it more comfortable to hold without adding significant weight and it still slides effortlessly in and out of my pocket.

    For me: bumper=win

    Are you seriously asking if Apple customers are concerned about how their devices look?

    Really!!! This guy is obviously an Apple noob and this is his first Apple "product". Probably on a Windows PC though.

    I have only owned Apple since I got my first computer about 18 years ago. Currently own a MBP, iPod Touch, iPad, and iP4. I love the quality, UI, and customer service.

    I can honestly say that I've never tried to impress people with look of one of my devices. I couldn't care less if people think my device looks cheap, or expensive, or call me a fanboi, or any have any other superficial reaction to my technology choices.

    None of these reactions, if there are any I'm completely unaware of them because I don't look for them, would make me alter my choice for what I prefer, and I feel sorry for anyone insecure enough that would.

    If you're making your purchases based on impressing someone, you need more help than having a bumper or not having a bumper can provide.

    The orange bumper literally makes the white iPhone 4 look like an orange sherbet popsicle.

    OMG Such BS. Apple is quality PLUS design together. You don't get one without the other. You would NEVER have even of heard of Apple if it wasn't for their designs.

    There's nothing wrong with having fun showing off a cool new iP4. YOU have the problem if you think THAT is the problem.

    Get another phone. I've heard there are some others.

    But back on topic. The white iP4 just looks nasty with or without the bumpers.
    It's that god awful front panel.

    There are others. I would rather use my iPhone with a bumper than be stuck using one of those other phones.

    I am an iPhone user till Apple stops making iPhones.
