Within two weeks of use, the bottom part of the bumper started to fall apart.
Mark
Even though it cost 3 times as much, the original Apple bumper was considerably better quality.
P. J. Schroeder
Looks great, fits around the phone well, and does a nice job of protecting the phone.

Color Name: blackSize Name: iPhone 5 & 5S Verified Purchase
Length: 2:30 Mins
The case looks and, for the most part, feels exactly like the Apple bumpers, which is exactly what I wanted. Visually it looks nearly perfect and even on close inspection you wouldn't know that it wasn't an official bumper.

To nitpick the, the hard plastic "shell" has a very, very minor ridge which you cannot see but can only slightly feel, as if the edge needed just a bit of sanding. As others have mentioned the bottom of the case has a thin covering that prevents the lighting plug from going 100% into the socket. I'd say the plug goes 95% into the socket, which is far enough to make the connection, charge and sync. I didn't even notice it until I read others here post, so obviously it wasn't a major issue for me.

EDIT: after one day, I did wind up using my dremel to shave a tiny bit off of the bottom to allow the lightning plug to fit in all the way. Also after a day in my pocket the minor "ridge" i mentioned has worn smooth. I'm totally happy with it now.

Color Name: blackSize Name: iPhone 5 & 5S Verified Purchase
This is for the first version of the case, which I received before the iphone 5 was launched:
I purchased and received this bumper case before I received my iphone, I was a little concerned that it might not fit right but took the chance since it's not very expensive. I received my new phone today, the bumper is a very good fit. The thing that I'm unhappy with is that the cutout at the base of the case for the new power connector is too small. The port itself is accessible but the plastic edges of the case come right up to the edge of the hole (the female receptacle on the phone itself); this causes the cable connector's housing (the plastic part past the metal on the male end of the cable) to get blocked. This prevents you from pushing the cable connector in all the way unless you push really hard, then it tends to push itself back out. This is easily fixed with a little bit of cutting, but it's obviously not going to look as good if I do it with an xacto blade versus what it would look like if it was properly cut out by the factory.

Updated 1/30/13 - Fix with a new problem.
Photive posted a comment under this review stating that they had come out with a second revision to the case which included a cutout for the lightning connector which I complained about in my original review. They offered a free replacement case after I had sent them an email at Support@Photive.com with my Amazon order number and requesting a replacement case. When I received the replacement, I was pleased to note that the area for the lightning connector had been significantly widened. The case is still a very good fit and the lightning cable has no problem sticking and staying in.

Color Name: blackSize Name: iPhone 5 & 5S Verified Purchase
After going through several cheap bumpers that fell apart quickly I finally ordered this one. The fit is perfect, and very slim... It almost shows off the actual thinness of the iPhone 5. Everything is solid and feels like it will last. The only negative thing I could say is that the buttons feel a little hard to press, but it's not that bad. With this case, I'm using a back protector, and the two together are perfect. I wish I started off like this in the first place!

Edit: I've had this case for a couple months now, and it still definitely deserves the 5-star rating... I just had to add that maybe it was after the first week or so that the buttons became less stiff and easier to press... So now there's nothing negative to say.

Color Name: blackSize Name: iPhone 5 & 5S Verified Purchase
This "bumper" case is almost identical to the look and feel of Apple's version for the iPhone 4/4s. However, this one does not allow the charger to do it's job. There are two small pieces of plastic that block the charger from completely securing into the port. You must remove the case to charge the phone. The power button is a little tough to depress, but the volume buttons are much better.

I would not buy this again.

(UPDATE: Was contacted by ButterflyPhoto and was told a new batch of cases had been made which corrected this error. I will updated my review when the new bumpers are received.)

(UPDATE 2: Received a new version of this bumper which was designed to fix the charger port issue. I'm happy to report that it fits perfectly. Thank you ButterflyPhoto for fixing this issue.

One thing I really liked about the iPhone 5 was the thickness, so it was important to me to not buy a case that made it huge like the 4S. This bumper has been working great for a couple months, including frequent drops buy me.

I have no dent or dings in the back of my phone even without the protection offered by complete cases. I added an "Invisible Shield HD" to this bumper and feel my phone is well protected now, but still comfortable to throw in a pocket.

Great for the first 2 weeks. Then the bottom portion starts to come apart, the harder plastic near the plug and lightning connector separates from the softer rubber. Then the whole thing starts to unravel, the thing should be glued together or better made. I've now purchased two, and neither lasted a month.
