Re: Z4 case compatible with Moto Mods?

2019-07-06, 0:13 AM

Well, my cases arrived today and I modified them like you did yours. Remember that I purchased the one that had the clear front screen, but I ended up removing it because it was flimsy. It was a job in itself to get that off. I was also very skeptical removing the clear back from the rubber, but I did both of them sucessfully. I cut down the side, then peeled the rest off. I am so glad that you mentioned it would peel away from the plastic. It was still a tough job, but I'm so happy to finally have a bumper made for the Z4. My wife and I like it so well that we may not even change if Verizon does make one for this phone. You made a great choice in bumpers and my wife and I are so happy we copied you. LOL See pics of it from the start to the end result. I did cut the rubber at the bottom so that the battery mod would fit correctly. I also glued the 2 pieces together, like you did, but I used clear silicone, and it worked great!

Hey that's awesome! You did a great job! Looks very good! I'm glad you and your wife like this bumper modified so well!

 

I too don't even think I'll be purchasing a Verizon bumper should they come out with one. I really am happy with how grippy this one is!

 

My husband got his I'm the mail too and his was a little harder to peel off because we didn't make as large of a cut as I did to mine, but his turned out great too! I do recommend this one for sure.

Thank you so much for the great bumper idea. I tried a flimsy tpu one, and it didn't work for me at all (it was just too loose). I have ordered the case that james2517 included in the link and I'll be making mine next week. You guys are amazing!!

Hey great! I’m really happy with it too! So is my husband! It’s very rubber grippy on all sides! Easy to remove the mods quickly and without any hassle!

 

And I haven’t dropped it yet! *knock on wood* and I’m prone to dropping my phones (unfortunately). Oops. 

 

But I really am glad I found this bumper/case and modified it! It really is better IMO than the Verizon brand even (which was not as grippy as this one is). Like I said I won’t even be purchasing a Verizon one should they *ever* come out with one. I have stopped checking for one on Verizon’s website even. And I was checking daily before!

 

Enjoy your bumper once you get it all spiffied up!

That's great news! I'm so happy this is helping everyone. If it weren't for this forum, I would have never thought of doing the modification. Thanks to everyone!

Would this aluminum Z4 bumper interfere with cell, wifi, or Bluetooth reception?

Holy crap! They finally came out with an official z4 bumper! Ha! Wow!

 

I question 3 things about this one. I saw it for the z3 when I was searching before.

 

#1 Would the aluminum be grippy enough or would it slide out of your hands?

 

#2 Would the aluminum provide enough drop protection?

 

#3 Since it is not one solid piece and locks together at one point, would it stay connected/locked together well enough? Especially if dropped? Or would it become disconnected?

I have heard others state elsewhere that aluminum bumper cases do interfere with different signals on past models. Personally, I wouldn't buy it.

And I also wonder about the aluminum interfering with any cell, wifi, or Bluetooth performance. Hmmmm. 

 

I’m happy with my grippy modded one currently. But I am tempted. Lol But I see possible issues with this aluminum one. What the heck is a girl supposed to do? Oh my goodness!
