Just wondering, for people in the US, how much is the original bumper total cost bought from the Play Store, including tax and shipping?

Shipping from the US play store is $5.99 for the bumper, whether you buy 1 or 5. I bought 5 and the total was $113.36, so it came out to $22.67 each through the play store.

I received the Play Store bumper on monday and today I got the notification that the DX Box Bumper has arrived at my post office. So I will get it tomorrow and can compare them both.
Would be funny if this is a replica that is better than the original one

Can anyone else who bought their's from the Play store in the UK, check the warranty card and see what it says please.
Even the bumpers from the US Play Store have the Australia/New Zealand warranty card in them. It's strange, but it's there.

Thanks for mentioning that. The seller on eBay sent me a screenshot of the transaction in Google wallet which has alleviated my concerns. Thank god

So the DX-BOX bumpers are definitely fakes. You can almost immediately tell the one from the Play Store is much better quality. I found the DX-BOX one rather flexible where as the official one is much more rigid and tough. Also the plastic rim is much better constructed, and as someone said before, the inside is grey and not white.

That being said the DX-BOX one is perfectly fine for everyday use and it's an amazing replica, just it's too expensive for a fake.

If anyone wants some comparison pics let me know and I can post some up.

Still waiting on the Shenit bumper to arrive.

I ended up needing the extra space, so purchased a 16GB. If you or anyone you know needs or wants a pristine 8GB, shoot me a PM
