New aluminum bumper for my 4S...
I never liked the square edge feel of the 4S (liked the curvy feel of my old 3GS better). This aluminum bumper I got recently gave me the curves back. Lol. Love the look and solid feel....
What do y'all think?...

Wow, very nice looking indeed !! Enjoy !!
Also, where did you find it, price range & were there other colors avail? It reminds me of a curvy vapor comp. Does it interfere with your reception at all either?

Thanks guys. It's real easy to put on actually. The bumper comes in 2 pieces. You just slide the phone into one side, slide the other side on, and then in the second picture I posted above, you can see 2 black allen screws that secure the 2 aluminum pieces together. The bumper comes with the screws and Allen key. It also comes with 4 foam pads that you just stick inside the 4 corners of the bumper (to give the phone some cusion if you drop the phone.
I friggen love this bumper. It looks so slick IMHO.
I've heard some of the knockoffs do lessen your reception signal a bit, but the one I got did not mess up my reception at all. Whew. Love it!

It's not huge at all. It's very low profile, and because of the curves/angles, makes it look very thin. One thing I don't like about the Vapor bumpers are that they aren't symmetrical. One side has those round corners that protrude, whereas the other side doesn't. The Cleave is symmetrical, with curves on both sides. Just looks sleek IMO.
Also, it's very easy to hold, especially when held in landscape mode when you type. Your index fingers nicely wrap the curves at each side.

The wierd thing was that the signal loss wasn't off the bat, it started doing it about 4 days after he put it on.

Also, when i googled last night, i did see that Amazon had a pink one--but idk if theres any shennanigans i should be worried about. Where did you buy yours from? the one on Amazon was about $30 if i recall correctly.
I've only had the bumper on 2 days, but so far no loss in reception. I'm at work now and have 4 bars...which is what I normally have here even without a case. I got mine from eBay for $33.95 shipped.

I'll be glad to report back in a few days, but I doubt if there's no signal loss now that there will be signal loss later, as I doubt the metallurgy will change on this bumper. It's pretty cool...people at work here are complimenting on this bumper even though I never mentioned it. They just think it looks neat.
