Bumprz: The Non-Case for iPhone

I’ve never gone naked with an iPhone. These devices are too expensive to not use a case. However, cases take up extra space, and add weight and thickness to the iPhone, and are at best annoying. And they make using this feature difficult.

Case of Steel has released a “case” the company calls Bumprz. These metal corners stick on your iPhone and protect it from drops. If your phone falls on an edge and hits the floor, the corners absorb the impact. They stick up above the display, so if you drop it screen-side down, the glass won’t hit the sidewalk. They don’t protect the back much, though, and if you’re worried about getting small scratches on the back of your iPhone, then this might not be for you.

Bumprz

I’ve been using a prototype of Bumprz on my iPhone 6s, and, while I was skeptical it first, it is actually a joy to have a thinner, slightly lighter iPhone. The relative nakedness of the iPhone is a bit of a surprise, since I’ve always used a case, but I’m fairly confident that these little metal corners will protect it. (To be fair, I don’t often drop my iPhone, but now that I don’t have a full case, the gods will certainly conspire against me…)

Bumper are being crowdfunded, and you can find out more on this Kickstarter page. You can get a set, in one of three colors, for as little as $15, or get more than one set if you want them for your entire family.

  1. apple should have incorporated it in the design. We are sick of little cracks n the dislay of our ipad airs too, although we have the leather smartcases. Too slippery to handle them without cover.

  3. Another Bumprz scam. I backed them on their previous Bumprz scam when they shipped out junk to all us kickstarter supporters. When we had issues they were nowhere to be found. They fall off and in fact caused my phone screen to break. Not sure how they are claiming protection. Seems like they come and go when they want to make some money.

  5. Kirk, They did the same marketing on their first round to reviewers. Look at their Facebook page and comments on kickstarter during their first round. You will notice they just disappear and don’t respond until they have a new campaign to sell. They aren’t a legit company that provides the same backing to their supporters. I am glad you enjoy yours, but I will not be burned twice. I am already out the money for the Bumprz and my broken screen from their first go.I am a college student and can’t afford to support them again.
