Tried:
-Caze Thinedge
-Apple Bumper OEM
-Chinese knockoff bumpers
-Seidio Bumper
-Neo Hybrid EX

I am not interested in spending more than 60 dollars on the bumper

Must have features:
-NO SIGNAL LOSS
-Lay on table design on both the back and front


After 6-7 bumpers, an otterbox reflex case, a few case-mate cases I just dont know what to go with anymore...need a bumper or a slim case with lay on table design for the front of the phone

There are many threads and I am always on the boards so please dont reply that i should search the forums...Im on here twice a day searching for the best case

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP :D

This does not help at all. The Apple bumper fits your description perfectly. You need to explain why didn't work out.

Im simply tired of using the Black Apple Bumper bc over time it does get loose (i take my case off quite a bit as i am ocd about my screen cleaning)

Hopefully this Otterbox Reflex will satisfy my case cravings for a little while :cool:

I've never seen a seidio bumper

Your right about the apple one getting loose, mine did after like 14 months though. Last month I scooped up another but revised version. It's super snug on a white 4s.

If only other cases had the exact same metal volume/sleep/wake buttons as the apple bumper

maybe the new sgp linear color poly bumpers?

You still haven't explained why all the other bumpers didn't work out. If you're too lazy to put more effort into your posts, people are not going to put in the effort to help you. Even those who still want to help you still can't help you because we don't know what you're looking for. Stop being so lazy.

You can make the bumper fit snug again by letting it sit in boiling water for 10 mins. I do this every couple months from swapping cases. It works

The reason why none of the cases work for me is that after a short while they get dirty or loose or look in general cheap.

Its hard to imagine that not one company could take one of the aluminum design molds and instead make it in some kind of hard plastic that doesnt degrade signal

I am into customizing my phone

I had a walnut burl jackbacks cover, a baby blue glass back and now a lime green glass backplate

I want a case that exudes that premium feel and while apple's bumper does that it loses its luster fast

I guess I am just pining for a case that doesnt exist and thats why i need your guys help

I want a premium looking case (like aluminum style ones) without signal degradation

As i said above i got a deep teal otterbox reflex and i will post pictures on wed when i get the case in the mail

Like you said, you're pinning for something that doesn't exist. No such thing as a perfect case. You've pretty much listed everything out there so I highly doubt there's any help anyone can provide. You seem to be a case junkie but there's only so many out there.

SGP Linear Ex, best bumper hands down. It's slim, won't discolor, stylish and has a small lay on the table design for protect the screen and also comes with front and back screen shields. One of the best screen shields out there by the way.

Have you considered the issue is not with the bumpers but with your OCD? You may never be happy. You may pick out a flaw even if Nasa built a case.

Agreed! Just got mine in lime for my white iPhone, gorgeous! Slim, low profile can mix colors, does not interere with screen protectors. I have tried apple bumper, caze bumper, sgp hybrid ex, this is the best.

Another recommendation for the SGP Linear EX.

+ hard plastic bumper style case that won't discolor
+ good build quality, tight fit, and imo stylish.
+ several different color options and probably best non-aluminum/metal bumper out there.
