    WHAT. Sorry to say but I ain't paying 20 for a stupid bumper.
    I will wait until third party companies bring out bumpers, sorry Google but that's just too much for a little plastic!

    It actually looks rubber and maybe like some aluminum or something. not much info is given but its doesn't look like just plain plastic to me. Not to say you should buy it but it does look nice imo

    Well yeah it looks nice, but I'm not paying 20 for a bumper, that's ridiculous. And you are literally forced to either buy it together with the device or not at all, unless you want to pay lots of money for shipping again.
    That's not exactly nicely done by Google.

    Question, I lay my phone down alot, will the bumper have a little bit of room that the back/front won't be touching the surface you lay it on?

    Very nice! It doesn't look cheap at all (looks like a tough TPU style)...and I'm happy they added buttons to the bumper and didn't leave cutouts. Cutouts in a case just make it more recessed to push.

    Hopefully this goes live when the phone does!

    Tack on another $20 to the bill

    From the pics, it looks like it gives "lay on table" lip on front and back.

    I would think it would go on sell with the phone. I also like how they did buttons instead of cut out much better imo

    Now that it's made official, can you give us your impression of the bumper? Does it feel solid or cheap? Do the buttons give proper tactile feedback? Lay on table design front/back?

    Any info is helpful, thanks

    Feels very solid, I would honestly compare it quite easily to apple's iphone 4/4s bumper in terms of overall quality. Buttons work flawlessly and it does add a lip on the top and bottom for laying on a flat surface and keeping glass off the table, takes some getting used to with the bezel on the sides on the small side, but I got used to it quickly.

    Does this mean the bumper gives you trouble with certain gestures at the left and right edges of the screen, for example swiping from the outside inwards?

    with myself personally it was more inward to outward that gave me issues at first (nature of the beast with the lip to protect the device) but like I said, within a day or so I was totally used to it.

    Ziptied, would you recommend buying this for $20? Think it gives some real added drop protection?

    to quote myself....

    I'd easily pay $30 for it, but that's me.
    so yeah, I would, with ease. twice.
