    Default BestSkinsEver (Pics & Vid)

    Hey guys,

    Following my HTC ONE X BestSkinsEver Thread: (which I also posted here on AC forums too)

    I decided to stick with them and go for the screen protector only, as i dont require the full body on this tablet.

    ive had the Skin on for only a couple of days, and its already looking pretty close to perfect right about now.

    things to know:

    • Wet screen protectors will always produce some Orange-Peel-effect, even if they say they dont - however, ive found BestSkinsEver to be significantly less than ie. Zagg's Invisible Shield, Bodyguardz, Skinomi etc

    • Touch Sensivity is the same, as seen the video.

    • Swiping has little drag as with any protector, it will never be as good as the naked glass screen, but VERY little.


    Installation Tips:

    • Use large bowl of warm water, add 1 drop of washing up liquid and rinse bowl until all soap has vanished

    • Soak your fingers in this water before peeling off the protector from its backing to prevent fingerprints.

    • Peel it off & soak the damn thing, shake off the excess before applying.

    • Align skin completely before using the card/squeegee method of removing the water underneath.

    • Grab a card, if possible wrap once in a microfibre cloth to prevent damage (not essential, just recommended)

    • Squeegee from the middle outwards, and only Lightly press - use the side of the card, never the corners.

    • If you need to re-lift the skin to re-apply, completely remove it slowly to avoid stretching and soak in the water again. (remember - wet fingers)


    Good Luck, All the best.

    Nice images, good clean install. I had, in my opinion, the same results with ArmorSuit. Completely bubble-free, super simple to align perfectly, glassy feel, no observable 'peel' effect.

    One thing I notice as a difference about the one you used: while there is a cutout for the camera, the skin actually covers over the light sensor that is immediately to its right (I noticed that at 0:25 in the video). I don't know that it would have any impact, but thought I'd point it out.

    Makes absolutely no difference that the light sensor is covered.

    Same for the HTC ONE X skin.

    Thanks - good to know. It's also a bit less expensive than the ArmorSuit - I might give them a try next time I need to shield a device.

    Little birdy tells me there will be a discount from Monday 6th - Wednesday 8th August.

    It will be 25% off everything.
