    I recently purchased the Powersupport Anti-Glare + Crystal rear and while I absolutely LOVE the Anti-Glare front... I can't stand the Crystal backing. I was wondering if anyone makes a DRY Anti-Glare/Matte rear for the Ip4?

    Why PS doesn't sell this as an option is beyond me! :(

    Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing when I ordered my PS anti glare front & crystal rear a few minutes ago.

    Believe it or not, I think the ONLY reason PS doesn't sell it is a antiglare backing would make the phone extremely slick and easy to drop. The antiglare doesn't grip your fingers whatsoever, whereas the crystal sort of grips to your fingers (moreso than bare glass).

    sgpstore.com sells an anti-glare kit that's matte on both sides.

    switcheasy has a kit with both sides in matte. i've personally used the switcheasy films and i think they're good for the back side. the screen side film isnt nearly as good as the ones from powersupport, though.

    Phantom Skinz matte back. Oh wait think it's a wet apply. Looks great though, search for pics in forums.

    I've been wondering this same question. The slickness factor makes sense, I hadn't thought of that.

    I actually bought the matte phantom skinz backing for the ip4. It's a little thicker than most anti glare skins. It also has more grip than most, never slides out of my hand, and almost never have to wipe it down. Check out youtube for some reviews.

    I just picked up these matte protectors from SlickWraps. They were having a sale on these where it was "free" but shipping was $3. Not sure if that's still going on or not. Here's the website in case you're interested. Haven't put mine on yet but the back looks pretty good.

    Go with phantom skinz. May be a wet procedure but it worked great and looks even better.
