Avoid the Bumper

image via cnet, look at those scuffs!

While at first I loved the bumper on my iPhone 4, I’ve now come to not only dislike it, but regret ever placing it on my iPhone. Let me spin you a yarn. It’s a tale of love, betrayal, and… okay, it’s not that complex. It’s about how I’ve come to regret my bumper.

So, how could this have happened? Well there are a few reasons. First off, the case has become discolored. The white rubber is now a dull shade of gray with patches of color left on it. It looks bad. Really bad. After taking the case off to see if I could clean it (nope) I found a number of black spots on the inside of the case, which… left scuff marks on my phone! They won’t come off either. This is where the regret sinks in. Now my iPhone has scuffs on it from a case Apple made! In fact, cnet has an article about the issue here.

On the plus side it did protect my phone when I bumped up against something. But the rubber tore a bit so it was a one time deal.

My recommendation? Find a different case. Then, tell me what you picked, because I don’t know what to replace it with. I haven’t been able to find a good case. Everything takes away from the aesthetics or doesn’t add enough protection. It’s driving me nuts.
