    I am working on uploading pictures right now, a bit new to adding pictures so bare with me, the bumper is decent though it's got two rubber pieces with a bit of metal in the center.

    Sorry about the quality of the shots, using a galaxy nexus, hope that gives you a bit of an idea with what it looks like on the phone. And sorry again about the invalid attachments, here's a link to imgur that should give you a look at them. I hope this link here works for it, please let me know if it doesn't.

    When you lay the device face down or back down does the bumper lift the device and keep the glass off the surface its on? I often leave my phone face down but without a case to keep the glass of a table I get worried.
    Thanks

    It allows for a bit of a lift but not much of one, however I am noticing that it can still pick up like hairs so unless the surface is completely flat and clean there is still a chance it could sratch.

    I bought the bumper for drop protection (even though I plan on never dropping it). However, I still would recommend a protective film for the back. Currently have an iPhone 4S w/ bumper and Best Skins Ever film on the rear. I've been mostly pleased with that combination, but the film I got for my GF (also 4s) seems to be thinner and practically invisible. BSE film is thicker, wavy and kinda rubbery feeling. It's also starting to peel on the edges, presumably where there is friction between bumper and protector.

    Can you tell me what the weight was on your package according to UPS? Apparently my bumper is shipping today but I'm surprised at the 1.6lb weight they have indicated. Hoping that the phone comes with it!!!

    Google reps told me that they do not ship items separately. Chances are that if your package weighs 1.6 lb's then it has a phone in it.
    Congrats!

    My gross weight shows 2.50 lbs for both the phone and the bumper so I wouldn't think what they showed you is right for it, I would imagine that's for either just the phone or both of them.

    thanks for the pics...finally get to see some live shots
    it def cheapens the look of the phone IMO
    think I'd rather spend a few extra dollars for a Square Trade insurance policy ($7 a month) than cheapen the look of the phone with a $30 piece of TPU

    It actually makes it look better IMO in person. I'll take some high res, good lighting pics tonight being that my personal one arrived.

    Yeah my pictures really aren't the best, figured it should tide people over until someone with a good camera and some know how can take some. In person though it does look a lot nicer and with the metal band on the bumper it actually makes it look better I think.

    James Cameron would be proud.[1] Thanks for the shot of the bottom ... it reveals a bit of panache around the microUSB port that I hadn't noticed before.

    It's hard to tell, but the "metal" band seems more like brushed aluminum look,... doesn't make it look cheap like the narrow plastic chrome bezel on the naked phone does.

    [1] Director Cameron is very fond of scenes bathed in blue light. You can see this in about every film he makes.

    ... I'll take some high res, good lighting pics tonight being that my personal one arrived.
    Is there a live wallpaper for being green with envy?

    Every fall my current phone has taken has landed on the top or bottom. The D30 bumper/back combo I have on my Amaze seems to have saved it during its two drops of < 4'.

    Have my N4 in bumper right in front of me. Looks good IMO. If you had not seen the phone before you probably wouldn't guess it even has a case on it. The silly part though, is that the bumper is raised more up front than in the back-- If you lay phone face down on a flat surface, you will get more clearance than face up. I wouldn't have expected this.

    Yes I should have put that but the metal band does appear to be a brushed aluminum a little bit darker than what's on the bold 9900.
