    I actually don't mind the black color. Infact I prefer the black bumper to match the existing black lip/frame around the clearly white pixel 4 XL. Going to pull the trigger and give it a shot.
    Yeah, dude, good point! The black frame of the Pixel 4s with the black bumper case rhino shield would look good.
    I envy people that have the guts to use their phone naked lol. I'm too clumsy so I always have to have a case on my phone.
    Yeah, at this point, I also interviewed people that have the guts to go around with the naked faceless phone. Hahaha. especially with the high price tags of today's flagship smartphones. It just doesn't seem worth it to me.

    Yeah, at first before my pixel 3 XL, I never bought a rhino shield bumper case in the past. All of my previous phones Nexus phones just had him regular cases on them. My old Galaxy s8 was naked and I dropped it three times on concrete and cracked the screen up a bit. However, like I said, the bumper case from rhino shield doesn't add much bulk, it's protective as hell, and it looks good especially in white. Unfortunately, running shield doesn't make the white color for the Pixel 4/4 XL which is really unfortunate. The white just stands out much better! Especially on a white phone...
    I like white or other color for my black phone to change it up ..my old iPhones had options to change colors ...actually happy they don’t have more saves me some cash lmao

    Awesome ...I like the black as well and I think looks great with the white ...plus it goes with skins so you can always switch it up ...

    The white is still very slippery actually at least for me bc of how smooth/soft the back feels. Having the phone so thin too makes it hard to grip even with the default black lip. So having a but thicker bumper will be what gives the extra grip.

    Too thin and you can’t position properly ...I use the bumper edges to secure better grip ...

    Yeah that's how I use it with a case. It automatically provides tons of grip bc of the thicker edges of the case. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    How long have you been using that setup the bumper + skin? Any damage so far?

    You guys are making me want that bumper....again. I told myself 4 cases was enough, and am now re-thinking that idea.

    Honestly, it's a great great bumper case. If I had a way of taking a picture of my phone right now, lol, I would but I have a white Pixel 3 XL with the white bumper case on it with a red dbrand skin with blue Google logo accent. Yeah it's it sounds like my phone is very colorful, it is! Haha but it looks great and it's protected Can't ask for much more.

    Borrow a friend's phone to snap a pic whenever you are near one and reply back when you can. Sounds like a cool mix.

    I got the bumper early May ...no drops get but from my experience with prior ones always seems to hit the corners ..kinda like the weight makes it shift on drops haha

    Yep, I do like it. Just don't really "need" another case. bk has already got me hooked on skins, I have used 2 different skins already within a few months just to change up the color of my Pixel. Now he keeps posting cool pics of that bumper case. Shame on him. . LOL. (just kidding of course)

    You're right - the Pixel 4 is a gorgeous device and it is a shame that we feel so afraid to show off our devices!

    I sometimes use my white Samsung Galaxy S10 without a case during Zoom work meetings and when I am at home, but I still feel afraid of the unknowns: what if I drop it? What if I bang it into a wall? etc.

    Hahaha I hear you dude! Honestly for me, my first skin was the white marble skin but it look much more plain Jane and person versus on deep brains website. And I also have the full body skin which covered the sides of the phone. It was annoying to put on. Especially with a hair dryer to melt the glue around my phone. This can I have now from dbrand, it's just a back plate because you don't see the edges due to the bumper case / a regular case so it doesn't make a difference.

    Ha, yeah exactly! Phones do look beautiful why should we hide them when we can show them off as long as we are protecting it?!

    I have a Spigen bumper case on my 2XL. It is low profile, looks great and definitely saved my phone once when it was knocked out of my hands accidently , went flying about 5 feet into the air and landed on a ceramic floor. It was during a business trip and if my phone was out of commission it would have been very challenging.
    TL;DR No way I go caseless. Except sometimes at home. But rarely.
