The iPhone 4 has received a lot of press of late. Of course, every Apple device does. But surprise, this time a majority of them have been negative and critical of both the actual issues and Apple’s condescending responses to affected customers.
So what do you do? Returning your iPhone is one option. Buying a bumper that will protect your device is another. ElementCase has just released their latest aluminium bumper for the iPhone. And it looks great too.
Vapor4 comes with an aluminium exterior and the liner on the interior virtually insulates the antenna from the bumper metal to avoid interference. The creators claim to have tested the iPhone 4 bumper by wrapping it in an inch of anodized aluminium and the liner still managed to protect the iPhone from signal reception related issues.
While it is beautiful, protecting and all, it is not cheap. The Vapor4 aluminium bumper costs $80 – an additional $20 if you also want the V4Carbon carbon fiber back plate that will protect the iPhone 4 glass back.
