For a few bucks, it gets the job done. Here are my observations:
1. The lock button doesn't stick out enough. You have to be right on top of it to press it. Pressing the Up Volume button sometimes triggers Up then back Down if you don't press right on the upper edge of the "Up: button. They are also made of a cheaper plastic than the real thing and have a shiny "chrome" finish (which I expect may scratch) rather than the matte aluminum look of the real thing.
2. The thickness of the bumper (the width of the phone with bumper on) is not the same as the OEM bumper. This is not noticeable unless you have an accessory sized for the exact width of a real bumper. I have a custom mount in my car designed for the bumper, into which this doesn't fit properly. This isn't something I'd expect most people to run into, but it's worth noting. The depth of the phone is not affected, only the width.
Other than these issues it's a good case, and I don't think it's fair to expect a perfect substitute at this price. I have seen better knockoff bumpers however, that my friends have, that do appear identical, so the "perfect knockoff" is out there somewhere. But it'll be hard to find in the ocean of terrible ones. This one though, is a solid "Not bad."
