    unless you drop the phone on a corner or raised area that actually hits the glass front or back, would this bumper protect it? if it hit perfectly flat on front or back...or hit the corner. to me it looks like it would protect it...

    The iphone bumper is the best! It was engineered by apple and provides the best protection. I have 2 of them and tested many others that do not even come close to the quality and protection of the iphone bumper!!!!

    You know what.. accept the fact bump case is not made to last.. but rest assure it acts as a first defense against scratches. If you accidentally hit your iPhone against a hard surface, at least only the bump case gets damaged. The problem is then for you to purchase another one. I've discovered a website that offers a package deal for their members to pay once and get a whole year supply of bump case.. and there are plenty of cool designs to choose from. Just google for casingmaniac.com. But what really catches my attention is the price.. OMG! It's @$#$#^& affordable!!

    youtube apple bumper drop test....looks like it does what many other cases can do for drop protection and it only covers the sides and doesnt hide the naked look of the phone that much

    It's not an Apple bump case it's a cheap knockoff.... It's a nice phone get a real case... I like the Apple bumper feels nice and protects the corners like it was designed to do.

    I bought a bumper with my iphone 4 when it first came out, then apple refunded me twice, and I have to say i am pleased with it

    Maybe its design was designed in the first place to reduce/cure the reception problem associated with the iphone 4. maybe it was just a quick fix before the final release of the phone after a late discovery of the reception problem..
