    I like it. The customization with the skins is really cool but something about this pebble blue at an angle is just so damn sexy

    one tip with the DecalGirl skins...
    if you dont use the capacative buttons' LED then take care when removing the skin from its backing to keep the cut-outs attatched.. i ended up with the "back" key cut-out stuck to the backing and it just doesnt look right now that ive stuck it on... think it would look mega ugly with those cut-outs removed.
    also i need cosmetic advice, i put the home button cut out on a bit messy, how ugly will my phone look with it removed?.. should i use my shortys black nail polish on it instead?

    This is all a matter of personal taste, however, I installed the front decal (shiny black on a white S3) with the holes for the buttons. I think it looks great. To me, it looks more "right" (as in correct) to have the buttons exposed because otherwise it would look like one had glued little bits of paper to the buttons. I will Say, though, that is was REALLY difficult to line up that part of the decal with the actual buttons.

    cool. did u leave home button exposed too? try n post a pic when u can plz
    did u use the button LEDs before getting the skin? ive never used them so having obvious white buttons there instead of just using thumb memory would seem strange to me.
    as u say... matter of taste

    I haven't got any photos with me at the moment, but GelaSkins do some great skins that seem to last a while and best of all, you can make your own...

    Most of my mobile devices are skinned with Aeirth (Aeris) Gainsborough!

    Have another question for ya..

    Are you using a screen protector with the decal? If so, did you put the decal under or over the screen protector?

    yes to screen protector. Yes to putting it on before the decal. But don't know whether you HAVE to put protector on first.

    I can't check right now, but I believe it's only $2 or 3 US. Not sure, tho.

    I have only ever purchased skins I have made myself, though I don't think its much of a difference in price between the pre-made skins and the "make your own"... It's always been the shipping that makes the most difference in price.


    Decal Girl tends to have more and better-quality pre-made content from a long list of professional artists... My wife prefers Decal Girl, but this is primarily because she usually buys "manga-style" skins and as I said, Decal Girl tends to have more from professional artists.

    In saying this, GelaSkins has a powerful, Web-based wizard to make your own skins and having used GelaSkins' products for a couple of years now, I can say that I have always been happy with the end result - many of my devices are still using their original skin after 2-3+ years!

    Finally, in terms of quality and price, there's not a whole lot of difference between the two, and it mostly just comes down to personal preference... Head over to each site, have a look around and play around with their "create your own skin" wizards and see for yourself which you prefer.

    nope no screen protector mate and no scratches since UK release date. think if i got a screen protector, id want it to only cover the actual screen panel and be flush (or roughly flush) with the decalgirl. decalgirl should really offer them..

    Unless I'm thinking about Phantom Skinz, I believe decalgirl s do offer screen protectors.

    No. As I recall, the screen protector is separate, if it exists at all. My memory seems to be useless today.
