    I'd like to know this too, firstly to see what the quality is like, and secondly to know if Google are actually sending any out as I've not seen a single instance of one being shipped and it's holding up orders that include one.

    Is that true? Where did you hear that?

    Not heard it, I've deduced it from those that have received their shipping info / had their device delivered.

    I can't find a single instance where the bumper has been shipped. People who have ordered devices and the bumper as separate orders have the device shipped but not the bumper, and I can't find anyone who ordered the bumper and phone in the same order that has received shipping info.

    This is from trawling through XDA threads as well as other forums, not a single shipped bumper that I can find in any country.

    Guess that's as good an explanation as any since I Haven't got the shipping info yet either & ordered both together.

    I'll post back if I find out any different, but Australia have passed through their third potential night for shipping and I can't find anyone who's had a bumper ship.

    Post #2 and #4 give a quick review of someone who claims to have it. Hopefully some pictures will be posted soon.

    Thanks for that, looks as though there is the odd one or two being sent out then, good to know although I'm not holding my breath for dispatch today!

    I have my phone but the bumper is still in the "Pending" section on Google Wallet. Whilst checking I noticed that the "2 day" postage is 5.99, which is fair enough for a courier delivery, but as these things are hardly as delicate as an electrical device I do wonder why they can't simply be standard mailed in a jiffy bag.

    Just got here. The phone came with battery @ 9% so here are some bumper pictures. It's 1 piece and seems to protect the back better than the front.

    After using it now I can't even notice it but maybe it's because it's all i know.
    It's worth the $20 IMo.

    Lots of reviews note that the sound is reduced when placing the phone down on its back. Does the bumper help with this or is it still pretty muffled?

    Sounds fine. Keep in mind that I'm coming from a nexus s and I have a 7 with a blown speaker.

    I don't see these things protecting a drop so much as preventing scratches from a table.

    When I placed my order for the phone, the bumper wasn't available for sale yet. After I checked a few minutes later, the server problems were in full effect and it took me half an hour to get it in my cart and purchased. My bumper was in the later batch of orders, so it shipped first. Phone is coming today thankfully.

    The bumper is a lot nicer than I expected. Looks and feels great. Might actually be worth the $20.

    Got N4 & Bumper same day.

    bumper is t3h s3xy.

    No but really, I feel better knowing it's on. And it looks/feels premium. Makes me wonder if I want/need an XO skin.

    I am shipping mine back to google. It makes the phone feel more slippery then it already is. It is hard plastic and not rubber. Ordered a leather sleeve (Samsung SIII) to use until we get something better.

    does it add any sort of bulk to the phone? ie noticeably wider and such?
