For those not aware of Ghost Armor, its a wet application screen/body protector that in my opinion is one of the best. I had it on my Nexus S which at one point was in a sweatshirt pocket when I happened to slip on some ice and as phones seem wont to do, it flew out of my pocket and landed screen down on the pavement about 10 feet in front of me. There was not a scratch on the screen nor a crack. Later, while sitting in a recliner my phone slipped out of my pocket and into the mechanics of the chair (without my knowledge). When I put down the foot stool and realized my phone was no longer in my pocket I lifted up the chair and the phone fell out. This time there was damage...to the screen protector; a MASSIVE gash from where one of the mechanisms in the chair had scraped against it. To my amazement the screen was undamaged.
Now that my own little Ghost Armor history is up I'll post a few pictures from the website to give you an idea.
The available finishes for the full body protectors are Black Carbon, Gun Metal Carbon, and White Carbon (the website says you can get a matte one as well but the guy at the kiosk I went to said that the matte ones don't adhere very well to battery covers like ours so he wouldn't apply one). I ordered the White Carbon and will be getting it applied on Friday morning.
For reference, you can buy the screen only protector for $14.99+s/h&tax on the website and the full body kit for $24.99+s/h&tax on the website but if you go to a kiosk to get it installed by someone who knows what they're doing the full body kit'll run you a hefty $42.

So to start with, I got the White Carbon skin which I find to be massively smexy. The first thing I noticed is that unlike on my Nexus S, the edges of the protector along the sides are not very sharp and are actually pretty comfortable to hold in your hand. The second thing I noticed was that the claim that this will improve grip isn't necessarily true; don't get me wrong, this doesn't make the phone slippery or anything of the sort. The back just isn't quite as sticky as the soft-touch back, however, the sides are much more grippy than the standard chrome bezel.
The biggest issue people have with screen protectors though is not how it looks on the back of the phone or how grippy they are: its the screen, so lets get to that. First off, without even turning the phone on it is MASSIVELY hard to tell there is even a protector on. You can see a feint outline that extends very nearly from the top bezel to the bottom bezel. There is a cutout at the top for the speak and thats really it. Even the capacitive buttons are covered (they do not however seem any less responsive to me). Aside from the outline, the first you'll notice the screen protector is on is when you touch the screen; it doesn't feel as … glass-like. I have very calloused fingers (having been a guitar-player for over ten years) so its hard for me to quantify what it feels like but it doesn't have that slippery glass-like feeling of the new screen.
It doesn't feel cheap either though, and thats nice. Really thats all there is to say. The screen still looks down right beautiful and remains very responsive. I'm super stoked about this protector and I think it was well worth the money.
