Thanks to your pictures and assistance, I'm happy with what I have. I personally wouldn't trust it.

Hey thanks for the info! I definitely don’t want any interference with my z4. I’ll be passing on this one. I just was so shocked to see one! I really like my modded one. I don’t know what I was thinking. Just got caught up I guess!

Yeah, does look nice at first glance. I'm not against changing in the future if one comes out that's well made and grippy like ours?

I also remember posts from a previous Z model claiming that the aluminum bumper case interfered with cell / data signals.  But I think that case was all aluminum.  The one pictured a few posts ago looks like a mixture of aluminum and TPU rubber.  I'm not sure where the cell / data antennas are at on Z phones.  If the phone frame itself is at all sorry of the antenna system any case with metal would interfere.  But if the antenna is behind the glass back, that bumper might be OK.  It's really hard to say without someone actually trying it, or knowing exactly where the cell / data antenna is.

I had an aluminum one for my Z2 I believe. It did interfere with the signal slightly. The biggest problem I had with it was the first time I dropped it, the frame bent and I couldn't get it to ever stay clipped together again. So the case would open while I was holding the phone, and one time the phone actually started to slip out of the case while I was talking on it. I wouldn't recommend a metal one ever.

Hey look guys! The grippy bumper ones that can be modified now come in different colors on Amazon! 

 

Here are two without built in screen protectors. (A solid bright blue and a purple speckled):

 

https://www.amazon.com/AZHEPU-Full-Body-Protective-Absorption-Motorola/dp/B07TQG27MV/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=AZHEPU%2Bz4&qid=1563190805&s=gateway&sr=8-2&th=1

 

 

Here is a navy speckled one (also the black one can be found here) with a built in screen protector:

 

https://www.amazon.com/Screen-Protector-LeYi-Shock-Absorption-Motorola/dp/B07T1RHVQW/ref=sr_1_12?keywords=Moto%2Bz4%2Bbumper&qid=1563190990&s=gateway&sr=8-12&th=1

 

 

And I found even more on eBay! Solid pink, solid purple I think, solid black etc. I don’t know how to provide links on eBay because I have the app, sorry. But if you search Moto z4 bumper you will surely see them! So if you’d like a different color or a solid black, here’s where to get them!

 

I’m thinking about getting solid pink or solid purple! I think those were $8.99 on eBay with free shipping. I would keep mine but it would make it easier to identify whose phone is whose since the husband and I have the same phone, same bumper currently. He is happy with his black with green speckled so that’s good. Plus I feel I could do a better job without any goofs. Live and learn I guess! Then we will have a spare one too. I think it’s worth $9 and some elbow grease. Haha! Enjoy!

Very nice! I may consider doing the same thing for my wife. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Yes, I thought it was cool too!

 

I will definitely post pics again so you can see the color better and I'll report if this one peels off just as well as the black speckled ones did! 

 

I'll keep you posted! It says it will take about a week to get here but at least I have protection for now!

Unfortunately those two don't claim to fit with Moto Mods. I doubt you'll have much luck.
