    Who else thinks that theres a flaw on how they designed the full body protector? I mean it covers the whole screen and back perfectly but the whole metal housing around the phone doesn't cover that at all...which includes the corners that are like 90% more likely to fall on if it does fall.

    I'm guessing no one has the full body protection?

    I did and it was a waste of money, the only thing I would recommend is the screen protector.

    I took off the full body protection and kept the screen protector. Today, I thought about getting rid of it as it is looking a bit shabby.
    I'm with ya on the lack of corner coverage with the full body...quite disappointing.

    it doesn't cover corners, which will probably be the first to get hit.

    i removed it from the back cause i like the rubbery feel better than the IS.

    ya, it protects thin strips on the sides, so we will have scratches, then a perfect strip right down it, then covered in more scratches

    Naked...fully naked for a long time, couldn't be happier with the build of the droid. Don't stick BS on it, it already comes protected!

    I feel the same way about the full body Invisible Shield. If it doesn't cover center band that goes around the Droid, then it doens't really offer full body protection.

    I'm satisfifed with the screen protection, and while I'd like better corner protection, I'm reasonably satisfied with the strips that cover the metal edges around the screen. However, I don't think it adheres well to the rubberized back. On the back of my phone it's still on the battery cover and the little piece right under (landscape) the camera lens. However, there's lifting on the thin strip just above (portrait) the camera and just below the speaker grill. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I'm not sure if the installer at the mall didn't do a good job on those two pieces or if there's just something about the rubberized finish on the back of the phone that doesn't allow the IS to adhere well to it on the edges.

    If my phone falls and gets that metal frame scratched ill email them asking if they are going to change it anytime soon...


    You should of let it dry 24 hours at least without like touching it and stuff...also could be if you put it in your pocket a lot and take it back out...

    I agree I took my Bodyglove off earlier in the week and Invisibleshield yesterday. Nake and I like the fact that the body profile is smaller and the screen seems to work better.

    I have a screen protector, but i always wonder if the screen might be more responsive if i took it off. Waiting to see a pouch type case i like and i'll probably go naked. I love how some BBs had a pouch case and when you slid the phone out of the pouch it would turn on.

    If you think invisishield will protect you from a concrete drop, then Keep watching the sun rise at night. Invisishield is junk, and a rip off. The droid comes with great materials and a build. Carry on, when invisishield fails to absorb the G's of a drop, and only takes a few scratches, well, carry on wayward sun.....

    should still be responsive even with a screen protector. I have invisible shield on it and still find it very responsive.

    as for it being more responsive without the protector, of course it will be. that extra layer between the screen and your finger will affect it, but not by much of course.
