    I just received this bumper case in the mail. What do you guys think about Sandstone Black on Champagne Gold?

    I have experienced zero reception issues.

    It looks about the same. I ordered a red one that didn't have the silver power & volume rocker button. The bumper without the buttons doesn't feel as good as the CG bumper with the buttons. The bumper on the amazon link you posted looks like it has the buttons.

    The button issue on cases is tricky. I have a couple of the Cruizerlite cases - the buttons are not cut out. So it takes a bit and a hard-press to get the buttons to work. But it looks really nice. Now just hafta decide which bumper to get .. :)

    Looks nice man, but it is a tight fit? Cause a friend of mine bought one for the iphone 5 and after a few days the sides started to slack and gaps started to appear.....And how well does it protect the back since the 1+1 is curved.

    How does an aluminum bumper help with shock absorption if you drop the phone?

    I don't think it will absorb a drop. This case is more for aesthetics. A TPU case will probably absorb a drop not this bumper.

    It fit the 1+ tight no gaps or bends. I had a red bumper on my other 1+ for about a week and no problems.

    Doubt this bumper will help with drops....but it should prevent most minor injuries to the phone like scratches....It should also protect the screen a bit since it raises above it.

    This does have reception issues if you change your signal bars to those digits, and compare with case on and case off about half a bar or a bar difference. I have the same case black and a gold one coming, but very stylish none the less
