Default Phatom Skinz *ON SALE*

I highly recommend them. They worked flawlessly on my Evo. And I had the Full Screen Protector and Carbon Fiber on my Evo. And I plan on purchasing for my Epic too.

I hear that Phantomskinz are easily scratched. I know that they will still protect the phone even if they do get scratched, but then you still end up looking at a scratched skin for as long as you have it. Have you had any problems with that?

PS' site labels the product as "self-healing" from scratches, but from what I've read it seems as though even a moderately large/deep scratch manages to stay put. Other than that, PS skins are supposed to be great, but that was the reason I was initially turned off from them.

They are self healing. I had 2 scratches on my Evo from dropping it and they disappeared in like 2 or 3 days. And whenever it looked a little blurry I would just use some polishing compound and rub it and it came back to a new state.

I have tried many of these covers and phantom skinz are the best in terms of not even noticing it is on the device. Also they are slick and generally you just forget they are even there. Bestskinsever and invisible shields almost always have a slightly bumpy texture or graininess that I could never use.

Just purchased mine. Matte version for me though, I hope it's as nice of quality as people say. It was a touch decision, but since wrapsol hasn't released their skin yet and neither has Stenheil, I made the leap :P

Use the coupon code "summersale2010" to get 30% off! That made it a nice deal.

I know from experience that this are WAY better than Zagg invisible shield and they do NOT have lifting issues whatsoever.
