Done.

I'm living in Kansas City at the moment, surprised you guys are located outside Wichita of all places.

So I got my Slickwraps in the mail a couple of weeks ago, but was out of town for a while and unable to install and review until today.

I'm really impressed with the finish of the metal series and the install is a breeze. Every cutout seems to line up perfectly. I actually had to pull the back off once to reposition it slightly, but there was no problem doing this. I thought at first that I was putting wrinkles and creases in it while pulling it off, but it went right back on smoothly with no visible problems.

I was able to install every piece except for the fronts because I already have a glass screen protector installed. All of the pieces have the cutouts exactly where they should be. The two pieces along the sides can be a little tough to get lined up just right, but that's also easy to pull and reapply. The only thing I would want to be different is how much each piece covers. There are still parts of the phone that don't get fully covered, but I can see how it would be almost impossible to do because of the curves on the device. After everything was on I only noticed a couple of corners that didn't stay down completely so I used the hair dryer trick and that worked very quickly.

As I installed the Spigen Slim Armor case over the wrap one of the side pieces started to come off, but I was able to get that back down and the case went on just fine. Once I got back home a few hours later I pulled the case back off and every piece of the wrap was still in place. I also see what others have said about the sharp edges, but they don't really bother me too much.

Overall I'm very happy with the wrap. I've never had one for any phone before, but this has made me want to try more designs. Although I need a protective case in my work environment, the wrap lets me feel comfortable going without the case while I'm not at work.
