Contest: Win 1 of 2 Nexus 4 Bumper Cases (Update: Winners Picked)

nexus 4 bumper

Since the official Bumper for the Nexus 4 is once again “temporarily out of stock” in the Google Play store, we figured it was the perfect time to give two of them away. Thanks to the device having both a front and back made of glass, protecting it has become something that almost every N4 should think about. I’m living proof that even someone who babies phones can manage to crack and scratch the hell out of this one with little work.

Here is a quick video overview of the Bumper.

So who wants one? 


Update:  We have picked and emailed our two winners!

Prize:  Two (2) Nexus 4 Bumper cases for two winners.

1.  Follow us through some sort of social network:  Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
2.  in the comments, tell us why you need a Bumper.

Winners:  Two winners will be chosen Monday at 10AM Pacific.

    I REALLY don’t like my official bumper case. I think it makes the phone feel much wider & the back feels awkward to hold. The back is sunk in from the bumper, so it just feels awkward to me. Just my opinion.

    well I need one because, I waited since it was released and finally got me a nexus 4, when it went back into stock. 5 days after i was letting a friend check it out and watched with my own eyes as he dropped my Nexus 4 from about 4 ft. It landed on its edge and cracked the screen. I can clearly see if i had a bumper it would not have happened. I had to fork over another 386.00 for a new one but when i ordered it the bumper were of course out of stock. At this point the phone will stay in the box until i can afford a case…but it would be nice to win one…Thanks Droid Life for being the greatest Android news site to date..

  • The real question is why DON’T I need a bumper??

  • Because I have never won anything.

  • Masterminded

    I want a case that is protective, but at the some time allows me to show off the sparkly back

  • to protect my phone from myself

  • Just got my Nexus 4. As a student I’m low on cash especially after the purchase and could really do with bumper to protect my phone. I want to flaunt the back cover too. Sparkly! 🙂

  • I need it not only to protect my nexus 4 but also to protect the galaxy form inevitable war that would result from my phone shattering

    I need a bumper so I have yet another reason to gush about this blog to anyone who’ll listen.

  • Kenny Larson

    I’ve been using mine with no case or bumper, but I think it’s time to get one… and I don’t want to cover up that nice looking back!!

  • Crazydog

    ’cause the one I have broke.

  • I travel for work so I’m constantly in airports or on the road pulling my Nexus 4 out of my pocket to read emails, check flights, etc. The bumper would give me a peace of mind every time I had to do that which would be amazing.

  • Don’t like bulky case on phone.

  • I need a bumper because the back of my Nexus 4 is too pretty to hid behind its current case.

  • Because my n4 is scratched!

    Because I need one

    Well let’s see.. I almost bought this bumper the last two times it became available on the play site. Two reasons I didn’t:

    1) Shipping costs seem to expensive through Google.
    2) I was afraid if I ordered through Google I still might not see my item for a couple of months.

    I don’t really like cases as they bloat the size of the phone. The bumper looks like it doesn’t add much size but does add some protection from setting the glass back of the N4 down on hard surfaces. I’d try it out.

  • I want to show off the great looking back while also protecting my phone. Unfortunately my only options to do so will cost me 30 bucks and is always out of stock, or buy a cheap crappy version of it that will likely fall apart in weeks.

  • Need the bumper to protect the phone while still being able to see the pretty back.

  • I would like one to replace another one.

  • Adrian Cheung

    i need bumper cuz want to protect my lovely N4

  • coggy9

    I don’t need a bumper, but my father does for his unprotected Nexus 4.

  • because i prefer to have my phone naked… but i also am a bit of a worry wart. so I want to protect it, but i don’t wnat to lose the shiny glittery-ness of the back… i think this is a nice even marriage of my needs/wants.

  • I so badly need a bumper case, cuz I booked the phone just a few minutes back, and then forgot to book the bumper case thinking I’ll do it after buying the phone. And BAM! there it goes out of stock 🙁 … I blew the SAMOLED screen of my Samsung Galaxy Nexus a few days back. I so need it with this phone now. I’m too careless, at times. I NEED THIS PLEASE! thank you. 🙂

  • Andrey Feldman

    I need one cause my poetic borderline bumper is falling apart after three days.

  • I would love to win one – as my apple friends make fun of the glass back on my nexus 4… they are just jealous.

  • Greg Morgan

    because my N4 is made of glass

  • Aaron

    I need a bumper to protect my phone from his dangerous owner.

  • A bumper is a great way to absorb the impact of a serious collision.

  • Keyan X

    I need a bumper because I love the back of my Nexus 4 but still feel uneasy about using it naked at times, this way I can have the best of both worlds 🙂

  • To protect my Nexus 4 obviously.
