ordering one now and will report back. i don't have the official one to compare with though.

PS the seller has pretty good rep, and he said the bumper is oem and made of aluminum. it is not the same one but is of the same quality and material.

Can't find any users review for the site. They listed as 100% original, anyone doubting the claim? About to pull trigger.

Edit: NVM, placed an order.
Current: Nexus 4

Note that it is in chinese, do use google translate
It is currently in pre-order stage as the seller has already placed order for 1000 unit of these.
The quality, material used and worksmanship is said to be 1:1 to that of the original playstore bumper. Priced at 70 RMB which is roughly 10 USD each before shipping, what do you guys think ?
Just asked my brother from Hong Kong to get me one.
Don't know how long it will take to be delivered to him. Then he'll have to send it to me in Toronto.

I was looking at the pics from http://dx-box.com/brand-new-sealed-n...-shipping.html. It look very much like the one from Google Play Store. The metal part shows come apart from the bumper. Is that how the original one from Google Play Store is too?

P.S. I just ordered one. Since they do accept PayPal, it's somewhat better than the other online sites from China that only accept money transfer to a Chinese bank. Even it may be fake, it looks very much like the one from Google Play because of the metal band. The one poetic bumper lacks that metal band but it's much cheaper. I don't mind to pay a little more to get something that doesn't depreciate the beauty of the Nexus 4.

The only suspicious part is that the authentic one (being sold by Google) is made in Korea. So it has no rights to be coming out of China, so it's either a FAKE or they are now producing them in China to meet demand. The website shows nothing on the back side of the box which is supposed to include a authentic holo sticker.
