Theres a aluminium bumper out there as well, but be wary, it can affect cell signal.

Personally I don't see the appeal of the bumper type cases. I get that it's to protect your phone from areas where it's most likely to land on but the amount of protection remains to be seen, and I really dislike the look of them! might as well get a full back on it as well!

I would buy. Might not be my favorite, but I like options.

Bumpers are not for drop protection. The appeal of bumpers is they protect the front and back of the phone when it is set down on the table, keeping them from becoming scuffed. Also they add much less bulk and thickness to the phone compared to TPU cases. It is a lot easier to slide your phone in and out of your pocket in a bumper case than a TPU case.

Bumpers are for people who take good care of their devices and rarely/never drop them, and they want to keep them as "naked" as possible, but they want to keep them looking as new as possible... people like me :P I didn't spend hundreds of dollars on a premium phone to have it all hidden in a piece of $2 plastic.
