    Hi everyone, i'm looking for bumpers for my 5s space grey, but the two i've bought on the ebay are really big and make the iPhone ugly, besides they feel like cheap plastic on the hand. The truth is that they cost me less than 3 bucks. Could you recommend me a good bumper, as thin as possible? Around 20 bucks would be a reasonable price to pay.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bought this Spigen bumper case for my wife's gold iphone 5S, she's been using it for five days, it's a perfect match.

    Does it affect Signal/Reception/Wifi?

    Do you have any photos of how it looks on the phone? Thickness, color match, etc? :) TIA

    No, not at all. I've used bumpers on my iPhone 5 for over a year without any issue, including this Spigen (in grey).

    The Caze ThinEdge is by FAR the best bumper. Very thin, semi-rigid, looks great on the phone.

    Just picked up the Power Support Flat Bumper in Metallic Red. Put a Carved ebony wood back skin on and I'm good to go. Love it!

    Awesome case

    The case looks great on my wife's gold iphone 5s and I will be picking up one of these very shortly. I can take some pics tomorrow when my wife gets back from work.

    The case fits very nicely, power and volume buttons work very well. Overall I feel I would be extremely happy using that case for myself. Right now I am sporting the zagg thin bumper and the spigen is WAY better of a case.

    With that being said, I have a zagg bumper for sale if anyone interested �� $15 to anyone who wants it to put towards the purchase of the spigen case I want now lol ��

    I have the above too in black. It's okay. A bit cheap and goes on rough.

    Got it off this site: http://mimeusa.com/product/halo-bumper-for-iphone-5/

    It's the same as the Pinlo, for half as much.

    PS Flat Bumper is nicer IMO. Sadly, I've had way too many cases, and I'm sure the PSFB won't be my last :)

    Thinnest iPhone 5s bumper?

    I have the Spigen bumper in Dante Red. Hybrid Neo Ex Slim. 9.4mm thickness at bumper; phone thickness, 7.6mm, elsewhere.

    They improved the fit so it doesn't slip off at all anymore. Wife has the Satin for white.

    Best case. Looks amazing on black iphone 5 hasn't scratched phone. Had this and slate for 3 months

    The Spigen Neo Hybrid design came out with the IPhone 4 with the unique two separate piece design that was different than the original Apple bumper. It's design prevents scratching the phone.

    It's vastly less expensive than the Power Support and available in more color combinations too. Both are of high quality.

    It preceded the Power Support bumper and preserves the look of the original phone.

    There are many variants available today.

    Yet they still use the same ugly grey plastic for the buttons since 2010.

    My spigen slim armor affected my signal and it's not metal. It must be something in the material. Went back to my incipio and didn't have any problems.

    (Tested at my work, noticeable 1 bar drop with the spigen)
