Just got the bumper myself directly shipped from South Korea and man is it even nice. It fits our Canadian Telus Optimus G really snug and perfectly. The buttons are perfectly aligned and doesn't push down at all and adds just the right amount of elegant touch all around. I have the black one.

i also purchased the Korean model (think thats the only one offered) off EBAY for my Telus. i was hoping it would not be to bulky but from your review it sounds like its a perfect fit.

thanks

I just bought the $2 TPU cases off eBay. I love them for their quality and feel.

great video. one correction though. the usb charger supplied with the G does fit with the bumper on. i just received the bumper yesterday and it fits snug as a glove. love the titanium look.

Thanks for the comment!
Yes, the official USB does work, but not if you try any other "bigger" one, like if you got one in the car, one @ work, etc...I tough I specified it in the video, maybe I forgot!

as for shipping from canada to US, considering the customs and how long they can take, I wouldn't expect it to be delivered within a week! Have you tryed best-buy?

just got the bumper from Futureshop today. the free shipping (within Canada) took only one day to deliver.

Definitely a better case by look and feel compared to the hard rubber one I got from Telus. I like the grip better, looks sharp. But it also leaves the back exposed.

The only gripe is that my earphones with L-shaped connector doesn't click ALL the way. Still plays music but comes off a bit easy.
