The iPhone 4 is a great smartphone that offers many advanced features and comes with many useful accessories. The Apple iPhone bumpers are some useful accessories that protect the smartphone’s sides and can be considered an extent of the screen. Another important role of these bumpers is the fact that they shield the external antennae.
We all know that the Apple’s decision to place three antennae on the outside of the iPhone was pretty bold. Even if this was a stylish touch, in the same time ensures that the signal reaches the iPhone directly, without being hindered by a metal or plastic case. But you should also know that holding your iPhone in your left hand (meaning that you touch the top and bottom antennae of the smartphone) may cause some problems with the signal. Therefore, having the Apple bumper on your smartphone is a must-have accessory for many iPhone users, because of its capability to prevent signal loss.
The Apple bumper is well made. The whole contraption is a ring of rubber and plastic placed around the iPhone’s edge. The inner part of the bumper is made of rubber and goes around the exterior which is made of plastic. On the plastic band are housed the metallic buttons of the iPhone: the sleep/wake button and the volume rocker while the other ports and controls available on the iPhone have specific cutouts made on the plastic band.
Installing the bumper is pretty simple. You will have to slide it around the smartphone. You should also know that the bumper doesn’t cover the back of your smartphone, but it raises your iPhone a little bit off the surface if you place it face down on the table. As a result, your smartphone will be protected against scratches on both front and back. In addition, most of the iPhone remains visible, so the bumper doesn’t influence the outstanding design of your iPhone too much.
Many people like how the iPhone 4 looks with the bumper on because it adds some color to your smartphone. You have the possibility to choose from a wide variety of colors available. The iPhone bumpers look better on the white version of the iPhone, but you can use it on the black version without worrying that will make your smartphone look cheap or outdated. You should definitely buy one of these bumpers because you would solve your reception problems and increase the protection against rear and frontal “hits”. The price of these Apple iPhone 4 bumpers is around $39.
