Good looks – Stylish Protective Bumper Frame Case for iPhone 4 - Green Reviews

posted by mrrigodx on 03/25/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It protects your phone without making it look huge or making it heavier.
The buttons look great when new.
Because it's just a bumper, it doesn't interfere with the camera flash like most colored cases do.
Compatible with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
Cons:
One volume button was stuck, so it didn't "click" when pushed. I always had to press it hard to turn the volume down.
The rubber gets unglued after a couple of months.
The button crome paint gets peeled off after a few weeks.
It's easy to get the rubber dirty.
Must be used with a back film cover for the back of the phone so it doesn't get scratched.
Other:
It's my second bumper ordered form DealExtreme. The first one was a light blue one, which was only compatible with the iPhone 4 GSM, but this one is compatible with every iPhone 4 variation.
One volume button was stuck, which didn't happen with my first bumper. I've ordered two more bumpers since, and one of them also has a stuck lock button instead. The other one is ok.
Bottomline:
If you complement it with back and front screen covers you'll get a great and lightweight protection for your phone.
Some bumpers come with stuck buttons. Also, the rubber gets unglued after a few months, so I recommend ordering two or more units just in case.
Try ordering different colored bumpers each time, people will notice it and give you nice comments.
