PC+TPU Edge Bumper for iPhone® 5/5s/SE - Black
This bumper case is designed to fit around the outside edge of your iPhone® 5/5s. It is made of a TPU inner ring molded to a polycarbonate outer ring. The bumper covers the volume and power buttons with TPU material, which allows the controls to be manipulated, while keeping out dust and dirt. It has cutouts for all the other controls and connections.
iPhone not included!

- Bumper case does exactly what it should
- Raised edges lift the phone off the surface, protecting the back/front from scratches (if you don't have back/front screen protectors)
- Bottom port access is big enough for AmazonBasics Lightning cable (which is huge compared to Apple's OEM cable) not sure how other users are reporting Apple's cable doesn't fit with this
- Retains the phone's slender appearance, hardly any weight is added to the phone (huge plus for me)
- Volume buttons/sleep (wake) button is a little tough to press, at least, more difficult than it should be. Regardless of how hard you press, it seems as if you're not pressing it
- The mute switch is a little too recessed from the case
Overall: Nothing else to say. The bumper case does its job. Third party cables fit nicely with this case. The edges are protected as they should be with bumper cases. The raised edges protect your phone from surface scratches (assuming you don't have screen protectors). Love it! Monoprice delivers again!
Clearly Monoprice didn't just go to China and buy the cheapest knockoff they could find.
I can tell that even though this case is inexpensive, the Monoprice designer and project manager cared enough to put real effort into delivering a good looking quality product.
PROS: This is a very nice looking edge bumper case. There is a generous cutout on the bottom for the speakers, earphone jack, and lightening connector.
Easy to install and remove.
I like the subtle but readable 'Monoprice' logo located on one side. To me it says 'Yes, I paid top dollar for this phone, but I'm not an idiot who overpays for simple accessories'.
CONS: Because of the generous holes for the various controls and connectors this case will not keep dust and moisture out of your iPhone.
PROS: - perfect fit
- not too "floppy" surrounding lightning connector port
- 100x better fit/finish than similar ebay units
CONS: none yet
just like the original iPhone 4 bumper, but seems to last longer.
(the Apple iPhone 4 bumper tended to come apart after a year or so)
PROS: tight fit, well constructed
CONS: Has a monoprice logo on the side, but it's barely noticeable.
PROS: snug fit
softer edges but not tacky (lint won't stick)
quality knockoff bumper
CONS: does not fit well with apple's 30pin adapter... you have to force the plug in and it does work but not ideal
like the oem apple 4s one this one does not have metal buttons ... Still functions well with the plastic however..
TPU edge bumper is a little on the hard side and as such doesn't provide much grip. There's still enough for hand holding but not if you rest the phone on an incline (eg. drafting table).
Overall excellent product for the price and I would purchase again.
PROS: Excellent fit for the iPhone 5, and won't cause rubbing/pinching of Monoprice branded screen protector.
CONS: TPU Edge Bumper could be grippier
PROS: Nice simple case. Gives the phone a bit of an edge to grip onto. I really like this bumper style. It's two toned PC TPU finish actually match my black iPhone really well and they complement each other.
CONS: Wouldn't say it detracts from the phone at all.
This bumper for the iPhone 5 fits perfectly and the button covers are plastic instead of that faux-metal that some manufacturers use. They seem like they're made so that they won't fall out or come loose, but only time will tell. I tried some low-cost bumpers from other sources for my iPhone 4 and the button covers they used fell off or didn't allow the buttons to function properly.
All of the ports and cutouts are right, the charge cable clicks snugly into the port. The cutout around the headphone jack has a little more clearance than the bumpers for the iPhone 4 did, so even if the headphone plug isn't super slender it should still go in okay.
The only improvement I would hope make is that the outer edges of the bumper aren't as "rubbery" as the OEM bumper, it still gives a nice grip in your hand, especially compared to the bare aluminum...but if you're laying it on a tilted surface I'm not sure it's "grippy" enough to keep it form sliding down.
PROS: Fits perfectly. All the cutouts are sized properly and all of the ports are accessible. The button covers allow the buttons to work properly.
CONS: Not a huge con, but the soft-touch part would give you more grip if it was a little more "rubbery"
PROS: Fits perfectly
CONS: Can be a bit difficult to put on and remove
PROS: As far as I'm concerned, this bumper is the only thing you need to protect your iPhone (plus maybe a screen guard). This bumper will absorb all impact from almost any angle it's dropped and keep your phone in great shape. It also doesn't add much weight or bulk to the phone, so it stays pretty light and sleek. It's hardly noticeable after a while. It's very cheap and worth keeping a few extras around for when they wear of old age.
CONS: It starts to fall apart after 3-6 months. First, the bottom area near the audio jack and battery plug-in will start to wear away, then the entire bumper will start sliding around and inevitably tear apart.
