Looking for the best bumper available. As far as I know these two are the best. Need help picking...
SGP Neo hands down. I've been looking at them both for several days now and have been reading multiple reviews. It seems to offer the best lay on the table protection while being super slim. It also comes with front and rear screen protectors.
I'm leaning towards the Apple bumper if i got an expensive one. The SGP Neo gets a lot of talk on this site because of it's style, but the 2-piece design just doesn't look sturdy to me and if you search around you'll find more unhappy customers than happy customers ONLY because of durability issues.
I know the Apple bumper doesn't over hot colors, but I have a knockoff one-piece black rubber bumper that works very well. $6 on Amazon. Neo's don't seem worth it...
The Neo Hybrid EX 2 fits all iphones (the silent switch doesnt sit centered though for the verizon 4 and 4S) and is built stronger than the regular EX. A lot of people complained that the small thing pieces around the charger broke easily. They thickened it a bit more and its pretty strong. I have two EX 2 bumper cases and switch between the two every once in a while. So far so good with no signs of cracks or anything really. I prefer SGP over Apple with the bumpers because I've heard the Apple ones actually scratch up the antenna band on the phone. The silicon wrap that goes around the phone with the SGP case hasn't made a mark on mine yet. If you hold out a bit longer though, SGP is making a EX 2 case made for the 4S. I hear it's supposed to come out on the 17th of this month.
I have some headphones that have a larger plug and so I need to easily remove the bumper to use it and the Apple bumper seems easier to remove. But if you don't have a need like that, then I would suggest the SGP since the colors are more vibrant. In the end the bumper does protect much, so it's all about the looks.
I just received my Satin Silver SGP Neo A today!
Really thin and lightweight.
And offers table protection (case lifts screen off table)
