Anyone knows the difference with full body screen protector and the regular screen protector? I know for case fit, they trimmed the edge a bit.

Full body includes separate pieces for the battery cover and the sides of the phone.

whenever I click on "go to checkout", just gives me a blank white page

Side Note: I really wanted to like the white, but the gaps showing the gray are nasty looking imo.

As a PSA on XO Skins for runners...

First off, I've used a ton of screen protectors on my smartphones over the years and XO is the best, IMO.

But, unlike the other protectors, XO *will* interact with plastic that it comes in contact with. I use a Tune Belt armband when running, and the XO stuck to the plastic window in the armband and deformed when separated. Other brands did not do this.

If you plan on using an armband with a plastic window, consider turning it around, so the XO does not come in contact with the plastic.

I had the same problem... I emailed them and they sent me a new one for free.

Did anyone have orange peel that went away after a few days? I put mine on 24hrs ago and have massive orange peel and still show micro bubbles. I know the micro bubbles will go away but will the orange peel or is this an install error on my part?

Orange Peel is typically caused by not enough liquid solution, and too much squeegeeing. Some of it goes away within a day or two, but after a few days - what you see is what you get.

Bubbles after a few days? You could probably get rid of them by pushing down on the spots but that may lead to more orange peeling effect if you do it too much.

Best way to apply the XO (and other wet type protectors) is to liberally spray both the protector and the glass, then drop the protector in place and slide it around to where it needs to be. Once there, just a gentle bit of squeegee action to let some excess liquid out so it doesn't keep sliding around. Then leave it alone to dry, putting pressure on it as need be, but avoiding squeegee type movement once the liquid's out, or you'll end up with orange peel.

Thanks, xo skin is sending me out another and I will try this time without being agressive on the squeegie. They seem to have great customer service
