Default Bumper case clone

Looks like eBay sellers are starting to carry these, but some are claiming they're official. Check the colors..pretty sure Google isn't carrying blue. They look good and for the price....pshhh. Right now take another $5 off the amazon deal.

Lol..I started laughing when I saw my shipping date. Kind of hoping, like everything else I order from amazon, it just shows up two days later like magic

Have had one for a few days now off eBay.

Knew it was obviously fake due to price but thought I'd try it out anyway (packaging was fantastic lol, taped up Google box)

The sides of the case come in on an angle towards the phone, not sure if it's like that on official model. Buttons are literally 1-1.5mm in height so pressing them is impossible.

Apart from those defects, the case fits great

Sounds the same as the official case.

Thanks for the info. Wouldn't be surprised if they are exact replicas of the original with maybe some color variations...And I noticed the taped up Google packaging on one of the eBay listings..lol

I'd be a bit worried. Google couldn't even get the case right with it's early degradation problems. Maybe this will be a case of the knock off being superior to the real thing? I'd have my doubts though.
