So my free iPhone 4 case came in today. I opted for an Apple Bumper. I went this route because I didn’t want to cover the iPhone in a case per se. The bumper was also my least favorite as it just looked like a giant rubber band. Much to my surprise, this “rubber band” was actually good looking, made from good materials and works!
The band is comprised of rubber, plastic and I think metal. Where the volume buttons and power switch are metal, the top and bottom of the rim is made from rubber to give it a grip to whatever surface it is on and the remainder is a shiny plastic. The band fits around the iPhone very snugly. The only pain is that the cut out for the silence button makes it difficult to get to the switch. That aside, i like my case. There is enough of a lip on both the back and front that I can lay my phone down on any surface and the glass itself doesn’t touch the surface. For over a month I have always cringed I laid my phone down on a table.Filed under: iPhone
