    I disagree with the article in link regarding muting the phone. More likely to reduce the phone slipping off flat surfaces.

    I would agree with both, without them it is both slippery and muted on a smooth surface. Being that the phone is very loud, I kinda like the "mute feature" ;). The slipperiness is another matter.

    Look at the link above. Two small plastic bumps on the back of the phone.

    Nope. They are miniscule tbh, I don't really see how they'd actually be much use at all.

    mine doesn't have them so im feeling left out.I think they are more for stopping the back getting scratched when laid down

    I assume that those little bumps are just there to prevent the phone from sliding everywhere?

    If you look closely at the picture in the OP, it appears the nipples are on the edge of the outer band and not on the back itself.

    Yeah, but I'm not sure how much they replace when you have a shattered back? I bet they don't pick the glass out and replace just that?

    Maybe they should've just put the speaker at the bottom so that the speakerphone doesn't become 50% volume when I put it on a table.... which is kind of the point of using speakerphone so I don't have to hold the phone in my hand.

    But given its quirks I still love my N4.
