Zenus Multi Bumper for iPhone 4
We were never big fans of Apple's iPhone 4 Bumpers, but Zenus thought it could do the same idea better. Multi Bumper for iPhone 4 ($35) has the same general look of Apple's plastic iPhone edge covers, but with a few key differences. Instead of combining plastic and rubber into a one-piece frame, this one is all plastic, and it comes in multiple pieces. There's a main tray, a backplate, and a front lip; metallic covers are placed over the Sleep/Wake and volume buttons, with tightly cut holes for all of the other necessary openings. The backplate would be a nice addition but for the circular Apple logo window, a now-classic signature of poor design. Multi Bumpers are available in gold, silver, and lime green, each with either black or white lips and backplates. Zenus also ships the cases in environmentally wasteful hard plastic boxes, compounding the disappointment.
