    I haven't forgotten about this thread. I have just been kinda busy. I hopefully will get my BSE protector on sometime this week, perhaps today even.

    All good, it's the holidays and I'm sure you've been busy as well. I just wanted to add onto that previous post since it did go through alot more since then, I mean I left it in the hands of my 4yr old nephew, how many of you would do that?:D

    And he did drop it once on marble from about 3ft, not a scratch or blemish, this phone is very durable.

    I still haven't forgotten about posting my thoughts on the BSE for the GN, the holidays and various other problems (hehe) kept coming up leaving me little to no free time. I currently have the Otterbox Defender, which has a built in screen protector, so I keep putting it off until later. I don't like the Otterbox's screen protector, so I am going to remove it once I get the BSE on (if it isn't worse than the Otterbox one that is).

    A quick glance at it, and it has an oval cutout for the speaker and a circular one for the FFC. Those are the only two cutouts. Putting it over the screen, it looks as though it will cover the entire screen, leaving nothing uncovered (except the two aforementioned cutouts).

    I will try and get some motivation tonight or perhaps tomorrow, and comment more on what it is like post installation. I also want to flash a new ROM tonight too.

    I put the BSE on last night, so it hasn't fully dried but I figured I have procrastinated long enough I should finally give my initial thoughts on my BSE.

    Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus Skin

    Pros:
    - Price. Even at the full price now, it is one of the cheaper options.
    - Seems to be quite sturdy. I am not going to attempt to scratch it, but it appears to be the same material that was on my OG Droid (also a BSE) and it was quite durable.
    - Clear It doesn't seem to interfere with the viewing of the screen. No orange peel effect. I watched a youtube video and played a game prior to application, and did the same after application. *note* I don't have 20/20 though.
    - Good fit. It basically goes edge to edge for me with very left exposed.

    Cons:
    - In one of the corners it isn't as accurate as it was prior want it to be. As mentioned above I just installed it less than 12 hrs ago, and haven't used it much since, so I hope this will go away with some time.
    - While it is smooth, it isn't as frictionless as glass. It isn't rubbery by any means, but I could tell a difference between glass to protector. Personally I don't have a problem with this, but some folks might.

    Other:
    - I am terrible at installing these things. It seems to take me forever to get the bubbles out. I struggled with this one too. Not that this is overly difficult, I am all thumbs when it comes to this stuff.
    - It ships in a letter envelope with red typing on it saying "Your Skin Inside". Nothing fancy but gets the job done. I could see how some folks may consider this a con, especially if you are the type that tends to get messed up mail.
