I can't see this product providing any protection at all the thin strips of plastic will break and the phone will break also in my opinion.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I really don't see the point of bumper cases in general...

It looks cool, is it rubber on the edges to make the iphone easy to hold?

They actually help. Wish I would've realised that before my iPod dropped and broke its glass

But how effective would this "case" be if the back and even the sides aren't covered? Might as well call it a frame. I got a slim case for my (yet-to-arrive) iPhone 5 for less than the price of this.

I have no idea how much THIS particular case would help

Sounds like a pretty cool idea, although I don't know about the strength of the pieces holding the two frames together. I guess it's something you can only experience by holding it in your hands.
