    Nexus 4 "bumper" appears under the radar, who bought one?


    "Customize your Nexus 4 with a lightweight bumper case."

    Priced at £15.99 plus £5.99 delivery from the Play Store.

    It appears to give no direct protection to the front or the back of the device, but sounds like it stops the phone sitting directly onto a desk by raising it and potentially giving some shock protection to the corners too?

    And another reason to leave the back open would be to allow the wireless charging to work?

    There appears to be internet chatter that strongly denies any iPhone "antenna-gate" style reason for the bumper. :)

    If anyone has ordered one of these with their Nexus 4 we'd love to hear what you think of it when it arrives. And pictures would be wonderful. ;)

    22 quid after shipping seems a little steep to me though?

    I saw it when I was getting ready to order and thought about adding one but even £16 is a bit much for a bit of rubber. I'm sure there will be good unofficial ones soon enough.

    A plastic case shouldn't affect an electric field in any way and Qi charging works upto a maximum distance of 40mm so I can't see the issue with a full case.

    Very expensive, but I bought one to test if my prepaid MasterCard will work with devices on the Play Store (it did). It's useful to me though as I want protection from drops without ruining the looks of the phone.

    So now I have a N4 bumper and a Best Skins Ever full body skin ordered, but no N4. I hope Google get more stock soon.

    I pondered for a couple of seconds on that bumper while trying to order the N4.

    Finally I didn't take it, although it looks good on the picture.

    I'll wait for other colours or 3rd party cases.

    However with this sweet holo pattern on the back I'm definitely going for a bumper-style case.

    Didn't get one, i think it feels good in the hand already, love the edges of the phone it just fits in your hand much better then the Galaxy Nexus did

    Ordered mine today along with a Nexus 7. I decided that I wouldn't order the Bumper separately especial at £5.00 just for the delivery and didn't want to risk it delaying or holding up any future Nexus 4 order.

    Just like @trishmac said, I would love a CaseMate "Barely There" for this phone, I've had these cases for my Nexus 1 and Desire HD, they do the job.
