Nexus 4 Bumper

What a great idea Google. A case for your smartphone that protects the edges, but leaves the screen free. And calling it a bumper is simply genius. Why didn’t Apple think of that a couple of years ago.

    Honestly I can’t imagine wanting something that would make such a big phone even bigger. (Of course I’m not at all a fan of giant phones, so I might be a little biased).

      I don’t think you know the meaning of the word troll, despite you actually doing it.

    Yes, Apple was totally first to the game with the idea of putting a protective rubber ring around something and calling it a bumper… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_car

      Followed the link and only found fairground cars – not a smartphone to be seen. Did you link correctly?

        His point is the word “bumper” for something to protect edges is not an Apple creation. They just applied it to a phone case.

      Yes. I hear its LTE reception is terrible.

        • gjgustav

          Yes – that’s what I was getting at.
