    Man, I bet the whole body skin is going to be a PITA for the back since it has all those curves and elevated battery cover area. I think the front skin is going to be good enough for me...

    I have used these on all my phones. they are great!!! I don't use them to prevent scratches. they are awesome at reducing smudges on the screen. the screen wipes clean MUCH easier with these installed. the scratch protection is a bonus!

    I will definitely be putting one on the screen...but probably not on the battery door...because as @nickacs stated...that looks to be a huge PITA!!!!

    how does phantom skinz compare to ghost-armor? i have a ghost-armor on my droid right now. I like the feel. But it said that microbubbles were going to be gone within 24-48 hours. well its been 4 days since i put it on and there are still some microbubbles. They seem to be going away, but still if they say something they should stand by it.

    they are very similar. both are superior to ZAGG in my opinion. the film on PS and GA are very similar. the biggest difference i noticed was in the way each company cut the patterns. the PS just seemed eaiser to install. and PS includes multiple screen protectors (in case you mess up the install). the second one comes in handy if you ever have to swap your phone out under warranty...or if you actually did get a scratch in it.

    what is the difference in matte and regular full body? thanks

    full body is the pattern (covers the entire phone vs. just the screen)

    Matte is the finish...(matte = dull vs. shiny...i assume)

    I'm not sure about that one, I tried looking on their site but couldn't really find anymore pictures. I'll send this forum thread to phantom skinz and maybe they can post on here and answer some questions.

    I ordered two full body kits, I can post pictures of them when they come in if you guys want. I am also curious about how it will fit and work out considering the back of the phone has so many curves.

    I just installed the matte finished PhantomSkinz just right now.

    Pros:
    Less oily marks
    Easy to apply
    Easier to use multi-touch rather than the Zagg skin

    Cons:
    Text visibility is diminished
    Scrolling using finger is not as smooth as I would like it to be

    Shoot man, i absolutely HATED the matte finish. I returned that stuff in the mail today. I thought the matte finish was gonna be for the rest of the phone not the screen. It made the screen look horrible. Im going back to Ghost-Armor.

    Yea, I'm really not happy with screen visibility with the matte finish for phantomskinz. Especially so when you are reading tiny text, it seems as though you're trying to read through glasses you haven't cleaned in 5 years...

    yea return it man. You have 30 days to get your money back. Get the clear stuff from them or get the Ghost armor.

    Do you have any pics of the matte finish on yours? I've been contemplating getting them, but not too sure how I'll like a skin vs a case, and the difficulty of putting them on and making it look good.

    PhantomSkinz are awesome, just make sure you select the Clear film. Just put mine on today and extremely happy !

    I don't know why they offer a matte finish for these beautiful screens...

    Oh man, I love PhantomSkinz. I used InvisibleShild and BestSkinsEver on my BlackBerry and found PS was better than both.

    A few installation tips from me is to use really warm water and plain jane soap (no frilly Bath and Body Works stuff). Also, I've found when I use the squeegee card I mess stuff up more than I help. I just use my fingers to get the water out from underneath.
