Starts off fine but cracks soon after
on June 13, 2013
This bumpers was initially great and the fit was perfect! It raised the phone a little off any surface while lying down as to prevent scratching and made it easier to grip.
However, despite the "high" price for this piece of plastic/rubber it started cracking after only a couple of months. It's obviously a design flaw but Google isn't doing anything about it since it's out of the 14 day return period.
The flaw is in how the plastic is molded around the micro usb port. There's an area with very thin plastic and it tends to crack in the middle of it, rendering the whole bumper useless.
To sum it up, looks good and fits snugly for the first little while but with questionable quality it's not made to last more than a month or two. Save your money and buy something else to protect your phone. If there was anything else available when I bought my phone I would have bought it instead.
Do a google search on "nexus 4 bumper cracked" and you'll see what I'm talking about. There's a discussion on a google forum as well as over at xda developers.
