I will probably get flamed for this, but I think the Zagg's are crap. Sure they're patented and popular, probably because they're sold in retail stores like Best Buy to consumers who may be unaware that there are better options out there. The irony here is that I bought a Zagg for my GNex. I had one on my Vibrant last year and it was so-so. The orange peel was horrible and the edges look equally bad over time. The orange peel on this Zagg isn't as bad, but it is still easily noticed.
This Zagg also carries the same annoying 'defect' as the one on my Vibrant....those occasional rainbow type horizontal or vertical hairlines. Zagg told me it was the way I applied the skin and I said BS. After putting on enough Zagg's over the years, I consider myself fairly skilled at applying the wet type screen protectors. I got all the air bubbles out and let it dry long enough without using the phone as they request. But on a white background you can definitely see a line here and there.
I haven't tried Ghost Armor yet, but I did order a Clear-Coat and an SGP flex protector and will compare those two and use which one I like best. But as it stands, my opinion of the Zagg hasn't changed. I also find it more annoying that they seemed to have started "branding" the lower right corner with Zagg on their newer protectors. Luckily I was able to rub over it enough to wipe it off, LOL.

I've got a tough-mate case and it's managed to peel up all 3... I've had to switch back to a diztronics TPU case til I can solve it... any tips?
I think the Skinomi is worse than the Zagg. I tried one on my Vibrant last year and was not impressed. I can't speak for BSE. The toughcase peeled up the corners of my Zagg as well. I switched back to my Diztronic TPU because of that. I didn't like the fit of the toughcase anyway. As much as I dislike the Zagg, I'd rather keep it on than the toughcase, LOL. The silicone layers that touch the phone body will eventually start peeling up the protector simply because they flex and stretch over time. Combine that with the issue of a case being designed for the LTE Nexus (slightly thicker) and being used on the GSM Nexus which is thinner and you'll see what I mean. The TPU cases shouldn't have this problem because they're more rigid. I had to make sure the Zagg was centered perfectly so that it's not riding up to the very edge of the screen on one side which makes matters worse. Even after all of this, I'll bet money the Zagg starts to peel at the edge and corners anyway because that's what they eventually do.
