    I missed the windows when these bumpers were available on Google Play, but I received my Nexus 4 a month ago. Every day goes by I worry carrying around my unprotected phone. It's been a month and a half since they've had the bumpers in stock, what's taking them so long?!

    I don't really want to buy from a 3rd party like ebay since they're marked up and could be scams. And I don't really like the Poetic bumper as an alternative. This is driving me nuts though. I can't believe a plastic bumper is taking them so long to produce.

    Me neither. I'm using the iBlason clear TPU case, which is good enough, but I really would like the bumper to go back on sale again.

    Yeah, it's pretty weird that even the bumper is so hard to get still.

    For what it's worth, I had both the Google bumper and the Poetic bumper. I thought the Poetic bumper looked bad online, but once I received it I ended up liking it more than the Google bumper. I like that's it's smaller and feels better. And that light gray band is actually dark gray, so matches the phone better than the pictures indicated.

    Just received my bumper a few minutes ago. It's nice, and snaps on pretty easily. It adds a bit more width to the phone, but not much thickness. It makes the phone feel bigger than with the iBlason soft gel case I have been using. The aluminum ring around the side makes it feel fairly slick, so I will be more careful with this one. The buttons are easier to push, however, and I like that it matches the look and design of the phone. The iBlason gave better grip, and protects the back since it keeps it covered. The good news is I have both if I want to switch back and forth.
