    Default Ghost Armor review

    Wanted to post a ghost armor review. If you don't know what it is, its a great phone protection. There are similar products out there but my research found this was the best. It is like a screen protector but better. You can protect your screen or the whole phone. I decided to do the whole phone. The material is great. It does not affect screen touch. It repels finger prints and screen marks. I'm very anal about my screen having all kind of smudges and marks. This leaves little to no marks which makes it amazing. The good thing about the screen protector is that it covers the entire screen unlike most others. The complete armor is nice minus one thing IMO, the rear cover is very slick which makes little to no grip. If I could I would of did screen only. But there is a carbon fiber protector that gives grip.

    The price is fair. $20 for screen or $35 for complete phone. There is a life time warranty with just a re install fee $5 for screen or 10 complete. You can find these stands in malls or online.

    But will it protect your phone if dropped? If so, I would prefer that over my bulky current protector.

    It keeps it from getting scratched but of course it won't keep the screen from cracking if falls 10 feet lol. I've had it 2 Weeks now and love it

    Just a update, have had this for almost a month...screen protector is great and keeps smudges and marks off screen. The back started to peel so I took it off, which was fine cuz it was too slick. So I would get screen only if I was you

    I have had ghost armor on my phone for about four months. At first I loved it. Now, I am extremely upset with this company. Their pieces fall off very quickly. I went to a kiosk and they told me they stopped ordering the side pieces because they fall off so easily and have had so many problems. So I spent nearly $50 to have a phone case wear out completely after less than four months. Quite an unhappy customer, I won't be getting a replacement from them I will be searching for a case that actually works.

    I have had the full body protection, with the clear finish on the display and the matte for the back and edges. I would have preferred a more customized design on the back - the cutouts the installer had to make to ensure the matte finish didn't obscure HTC logo looks a bit too "homemade' for a high end device - but that small flaw is overshadowed by the otherwise excellent fit and finish - with the matte over the back, the device protection is subtle.
    The small pieces protecting the top and bottom don't last very long but I simply drop off my M8 whenever I am at the mall - perhaps every 8 to 10 weeks - and for only $10 I get brand new, professionally installed protection – 20 minutes is longest I have waited.
    It’s too bad the smaller sections don’t last longer because the front and back pieces last for months with little to know signs of wear, but for me it’s worth the time and money – the corners and edges are where most of the casual nicks and scratches occur.
    I know a sliver of plastic – whether it was designed for orbital re-entry or not – won’t protect any device when the impact is serious but Ghost Armor was not designed to protect against that – isn’t that what SquareTrade is for anyway? I have lost count of how many times I have dropped my phone on everything from tile floors to the sidewalk yet there are only minor scratches and nicks.
    The designers at HTC must cringe at the thought of what is arguably the best looking smartphone ever made buried in hideous plastic cases.
    Use Ghost Armor and go naked.
