Re: Sweet Armor GNote Bumper & Mugen Extended Battery
Okay just got my bumper in the mail today. Fits perfect even with the mugen extended. Quality is awesome. Only complain I have is the side buttons feel a little loose, no biggie. And of course a lil too pricey. Comes with 3 extra buttons and five screws, loving it. It looks awesome =)

Can you post a pic? I have the sweet armor and am contemplating the Mugen but I'd like to see what it looks like first.

Thanks. A pick of the back and a profile pic would be great.

Just ordered one a few days ago. And to compliment it, a white carbon fiber battery cover on ebay. Can't wait for both to arrive

Sweet bumper but wayyy too pricey considering the chinese are banging the same thing out for $10 a unit.

Still please post pics when yours comes in.

I would love to buy several if they are of the same quality. Could you provide a link where these are available for $10 please?

UPDATE: Saw the other thread you participated in about aluminum bumpers and I see what bumpers you're referring to. While they look nice, you get what you pay for. I tried one of those and the quality is MUCH lower than the Sweet Armor. It is lighter, thinner, and scratches the GN2 easily. I believe in paying for quality if it can be had and the SA is worth it IMO.

No offense to those who bought the $10 eBay bumpers though.

I had the SA on my SII, it was sweet but pricey. After I sold my SII to get the Note, I gave the $10 bumper a go for a cheaper bumper look. Unfortunately, it messed up my Note. Plastic started chipping off between the screen and bezel.

Cons: Flimsy built, one time it slipped about half a feet high (in account with the weight of phone). The frame wasn't in the best of shape anymore. Unsatisfying premium look, actually made my phone look cheap. Tight slider, which cause plastic area to chip off over time and possible scratches to screen protector or phone if your not careful.

Pros: Cheap, easily replaceable. (provided not parts/accessory of your phone that needs replacement caused by the bumper)

Imho, you get what you paid for and I paid more. But kudos to those who had no problem with their bumpers. On my Note II, It's just sad case if I had to go thru it again, that's why I'm going back to SA

I had one of my Galaxy S1. Well made piece of kit but I ultimately didnt like the feel in the hand and was dubious about the shock protection (on that version there were only a few little thin foam strips inside the bezel.

Check it here http://www.mugen-power-batteries.com...tery-door.html

Loodeytunes said it fits and will be posting pics.
