    If you're using a case that's not clear, you can always use Scotch tape or packing take before you put the case on.

    Skinomi has some on their site and Amazon, but ship date is in a couple of weeks. I've found that even though their screen protectors are absolute garbage, their rear body protectors are actually very good, especially the matteskin. I have a left over 6+ matteskin that I'll use on my 7+ until they send them out.

    I usually just cut off my iPad screen protector into a rectangle and use it as my back film protector for my iPhone. Since I put my iPhone in a case, I don't mind buying a back protector to have it perfectly aligned.

    Post up pics. I almost got the jet black, but hesitated because of the matteskin, it seemed like a waste of the glossy black. I'm still curious though.

    It says on their page that you have to use a solution to install. I have never used them before but I have seen a lot of good reviews on their products.

    I prefer the wet install films to the dry ones. Using a solution (which I ususally discard, making my own with warm water and a drop of liquid soap) allows you to slide the film around on the phone to get it aligned properly. It definitely takes practice but one you become adept at installing films with a solution then it goes really quickly. I ordered from BSE which are half the price of the Slickwraps but they haven't shipped yet. (which is ok since my jetblack iPhone 7 128gb isn't due to arrive for another 2-5 weeks). :(

    Back protector cannot protect the phone if drop. Better to be a clear case

    I ordered the regular without front and back because if I remember correctly their back covers are matte and I got the jet black.

    I ordered a spigen front and back for the 6 plus as a temporary
