    How scratch proof are these? The anti glare VZ ones scratch super easily and so do the Otterbox defender ones...
    How do these compare with say, invisible Shields?

    This wants to be sent from my Samsung Galaxy Nexus

    I had this on my 2 yr OG Droid. Not a scratch after two years. A tiny bit of the top left corner is just starting to peel. It was super clear after you properly cured. It does give the screen a "rubbery" feel but the touch response was still exceptional. I'll be getting it for my nexus as well.

    Edit: oh the only was it made looking at the screen at extreme angles difficult but that could have been due to the OG's screen since I had it on since release.

    Also you don't have to even wait overnight to use your phone. I wait about ten minutes and then I'm golden. To each his own though.

    Here's my little review.

    I got the skinomi kit that comes with the "carbon fiber" skin for the whole phone. I work in a very dusty/sandy environment and needed a way to keep sand from scratching up the plastic of the phone when it gets stuck in between the verizon case and holster I am using (Being a Nexus It should still be worth a little bit by the time I can upgrade again so I want to try to keep it looking good) so the skinomi skin stuff looked like it might work and still allow me to use any case I wanted.

    I have to say I'm pretty happy with it, the installation takes some time/patience and a heat gun is needed (hair dryer would work in a pinch). It fits better than I expected and the stuff can be massaged into place once you heat it up and activate the adhesive. It's forgiving enough that you can pull it off and reposition numerous times as long as you don't heat it and once heated you can smooth out the few wrinkles in the corners pretty effectively...the heat also activates the adhesive which ,at least initially, seems to hold very well...Only time will tell how well the edges stay down long term.
    It does a good job of looking and feeling like uncured woven carbon fiber cloth and the gaps where you can still see the gray plastic of the gnexus are small enough that it doesn't end up looking like a sticker applied to the phone unless you look closely at it.

    I also applied the skinomi wet application screen protector tonight...it looks hazy and a bit of an eggshell surface at the moment so hopefully it clears up and smooths out over night as it has for others in this thread. It is larger than the screen protector I got from verizon so it leaves very little gap all the way around the edge of the screen, 0.5mm at most all the way around vs the 2 or 3mm in spots with the verizon protector which was driving me nuts, plus it was bubbling a bit at the bottom because of the curve in the glass I assume so a wet application protector seems the only way to go on the gnexus.

    Here's some pics from different angles.

    Disappointed. As soon as I slid the little plastic piece that comes with the screen protector to squeegee out the fluid I got tons of scratches on it. It looks awful right now, I applied it about 5 hours ago so I'm nervous.

    Those should go away. Mine did. Take the cloth it came with and buff it out with that. It will look amazing once it competely dries too...

    Yeah, I'm not real happy about the screen protector right now either...it just can't resist scratching like the dry application ones can...mine has a big arcing gouge/scratch in it where the corner of a piece of lumber rubbed across the face through my jean pocket...it would not have scratched a dry application protector. I have also started to notice some small water spots all over the screen under the screen protector....I only used the spray solution they include to install it so I don't know why it left the residue when it dried?


    The skinomi carbon fiber look protector for the rest of the phone is working out ideally though, no peeling edges yet and looks nice to boot.

    Did you wait 24 hours?

    I like the carbon fiber too. How long have you had yours and did you wait 24 hours?
