Apple iPhone 4 Bumper
Advantages: Good looks, solid protection, free
Disadvantages: does not protect volume buttons
I fundamentally disagree with a number of recent reviewers who have put up significantly negative reviews of this bumper for a variety of reasons.
Apple were hit by a barrage of rather vague connectivity issue claims when the iPhone 4 was released which no matter how hard I intentionally tried I failed to replicate having purchased the iPhone myself. Regardless of where or by whom this rumour was started, Apple went above and beyond their call of duty and offered all iPhone users a free bumper as well as including it with all future iPhone purchases completely free of charge. Given that this response was so far beyond anyone's expectations and the fact that all this was done absolutely for free, I fail to see how people can be negative about the gesture.
The bumper itself is a very well made piece of kit. It is a mixture of rubber on the outside, some stronger materials in various places and a much harder plastic in the corners to protect the phone from damage. The bumper fits nicely around the perimeter of the phone and does a good job in protecting it when falling on flat surfaces as regardless of the fall angle, the bumper absorbs the impact.
All buttons and holes are appropriately catered for and the bumper looks to be a very good quality product which does not detract from the design of the iPhone and is inconspicuous. The one minor drawback which stops be rating this 5 stars is that the volume buttons on the side are allowed to protrude beyond the extent of the bumper. It is fair to say that it is hard to imagine what the case would need to look like in order to protect these buttons, but I have managed to scratch and chip mine already where the rest of the phone is very well protected.
Summary: A great free addition to your iPhone, adding protection &keeping with the design of the iPhone 4.
