Chapter in this post:
Bumpers have been popular since the iPhone was around and the fact that Apple no longer offers bumpers for the iPhone 5 doesn't change that much. With the Apple bumper, however, there were also complaints that instead of edge protection there was more of a problem with grinding marks on the edges of the [iPhone-> iphone]. These abrasions occur when dust penetrates the side of the gap between the iPhone and the bumper and is then moved back and forth on the edge of the device by the movement of the bumper. The result is scratches and, on the new black iPhone 5, the lacquered surface has also become detached.
I was not yet aware of a solution to this problem, but today I read in a forum that you can buy a protective case for the iPhone that also protects the edges. The cover is called "Zagg invisibleSHIELD Maximum Coverage" and contains parts made of glass-like clear plastic that can be attached to the front, back and also on the edges of the iPhone. These are thin enough that you can look over them as well an iPhone bumper can pull. [Zagg-> zagg] offers this case for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4 / 4s and even for the iPhone 3G3 / 3Gs.
If you don't really want a screen protector, you can only apply the parts for the edges from the set and pull on the bumper as desired. Then you have 100% protection and don't have to worry about scratches on the iPhone. If you don't know the Zagg protective cover yet, you should watch the video. After that, he may be convinced that he can use it to protect his front and back. :)
Here are the two links to the Zagg full-body protective covers:
And for those who only want a subtle protection for the edges, I have just discovered the protective film "Final Grip", which is offered by [Final Protection-> final-protection]. Unfortunately, only the version for the iPhone 5 can be found on Amazon:
Here is an impressive video of what the inconspicuous PU protective film from Zagg invisibleSHIELD can keep from the iPhone.
