CHECK FOR UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ORIGINAL REVIEW
If you do not want to read the whole review the bottom line is that older versions of this case start splitting at the seams where the grey rubber meets the black plastic. However, Poetic have been continuously developing and improving the cases and now claim to have solved the issues in the "Final Fixed version". This went on sale the week starting 25 February so it is early to tell just yet if the problem was resolved. Keep an eye on recent reviews and my updates at the bottom of this review. Poetic will however fulfill their warranty obligations and issue you with a replacement if you contact their customer services. In most cases (I have not heard of one) they will not require that the faulty case is sent back to them.

ORIGINAL REVIEW.
I knew about this case before it went on sale in the US and was eagerly waiting for it to become available in the UK. I was looking for an alternative for the official Google bumper case which has been sold out on UK play store since November and to me £16 + postage is a bit too much. I pre-ordered immediately after it appeared on Amazon UK. Poetic always do a promotional price for their new product. I already bought a case for my Nexus 7 from them.

At the time of my order it said that it will start shipping on 30 December. It was a late Xmas surprise when my case arrived on early on 28 December. I started using it straightaway and loved it immediately. Fits perfectly, does not impede interaction with the screen. Of course, it does not provide the "full body" protection, but if that is what you want get a full body case, or at least a film screen protector to but on the Gorilla glass to prevent scratches.

Had it on the phone 5 days and the rubber is peeling from the hard plastic outer ( Images uploaded to the products gallery ).

Great idea but the build quality is poor, they need some better glue to fuse the rubber to the plastic as friction in a pocket placing and removing the phone pulls at the rubber.

Either make the bumper out of one material like TPU or put the rubber on the inside to grip the phone and have a durable plastic on the outside to take the bumps.

I've had to edit this review due to the poor build quality of the product. I had this case for a week or so before submitting my original review but bought the official Nexus 4 bumper when it became available. After a while I decided to switch back to the Poetic bumper and within weeks the two layers had started to peel apart from each other despite nothing more strenuous happening to the phone than it being slipped into and out of my pocket.

I emailed Poetic about this and they offered to replace the product. A replacement arrived very quickly (late June 2013, so I presume they were from the latest batch) and the same problem happened again within a week of it being on my phone. I suspect it is down to a design flaw, the join between the two plastics sits flush with the edge of the phone so when you grip the phone you are pushing the joint against that edge which then causes it to split. I cannot recommend the product, though I have left my initial review below for archival purposes.

I've had this on my Nexus 4 for about a week now. Firstly, it's not going to make the phone bullet proof, but then you should know that going in as it is a bumper style case which leaves the front and the back of the handset completely exposed. It exists to offer some protection while retaining the Nexus 4's very good looks. I bought this one because the official Google/LG bumper is almost impossible to find in stock at the moment.

Anyway, things I like:

It's very discreet. I genuinely have stopped even noticing it is on the phone now, which is fantastic as far as I am concerned. It doesn't get in the way, it doesn't ruin the phones striking looks.

1/3 the price of the "official" one and unlike that one available now. Fits perfectly and doesn't look or feel cheap in anyway. I found the N4 woudl slip very easily if left on any kind of surface, this bumper definitely helps to prevent that.

After less than a month of ownership the rubber surround around the case has started to come away from the plastic body, going to try gluing it back together but expected more for the money than issues in month one.

After 1 month of normal use, it started to fell apart into separate pieces... A waste of money! Don't buy this.

Although it looks great I have to give it only one star. The rubber part fell off from the plastic part. it did not last even one week. It is not worth a penny. I think i will try to get a refund.

I've been using this bumper for 4 weeks and it has already split in 2 places - above the micro USB and where the volume control buttons are. There have been no drops or falls, just in and out of my pocket. Not impressed.
