    This is a short review of a case I recently purchased from eBay. It's called ThinEdge Bumper and is made by CAZE (whoever that is!).

    Basically it is a super slim bumper that fits around the antenna of the iPhone, and clips on with what i can only describe as a Lego type connection at the top right hand side of the case. It is advertised as only being 1mm thick, thus adding only 1mm to the sides of the phone when it is fitted.

    The case is made of a sort of matte plastic, almost rubber like but it is very flexible and doesn't 'feel' like rubber.

    The fit is great, nice and snug and doesn't compromise the form factor or add much bulk to the phone. It also sports a lay on the table design so im guessing it provides a bit of protection if you were to drop it.

    The only problem i am having with this case so far is that it is starting to create air bubbles around the edge of my screen protector. The back protector is fine however the front i am having a few problems. I think it is because my screen protector isnt applied perfectly so i will be readjusting it later and will let you know the results.

    Other than that i am impressed with this caze, i was a massive fan of the Vapor Pro cases however have recently gone off them as in my opinion they add too much bulk to the phone. I was shopping for a slim bumper and i think i have found the solution...

    Anyway here are some pics:

    The case also comes with an extra opening at the bottom for a lanyard.

    I've reviewed this case and the fit is great. Screen protectors gotta be dead on though in order to have no bubbles. It does work though.

    Only thing that stops me from using this case daily is the HORRIBLE sleep/wake button area, which is just a pain to use.

    I love the bottom! Great protection around the charging port/speakers.

    Bumper looks good! Nothing like a clean looking white iPhone.

    This is now my favorite case along with the Magpul case. I like the lip that it provides front and back.

    yep i agree, it is a pain to press. Also i have managed to fit the screen protector perfectly, thank god. No bubbles now. i am using an SGP ultra crystal for reference - it fits fine.

    Yep same, this case adds minimal bulk and that was why i wanted to buy it, plus it looks cool too.

    Seeing this really makes me wish mine didnt get thrown away. Had them a couple days and one of my family members tossed them when they were over for Thanksgiving :(
