    I've never been a fan of screen protectors for the front, but I'll be needing something for the back. I plan on using either an e13ctron hybrid or Vapor Pro for my 4S and keeping it clipped to my belt...so I need something for the back only.

    What's the best out there without changing the texture?

    Every one on this forum seemed to advise on Power Support Crystal for a dry install and Best Skins Ever for a wet install.

    I went with Power Support Crystal, as I am only worried about little scratches from placing on a table or being in my pocket.

    I went BSE for the back and sides because it was the cheapest. No prior experience though. So we'll see =\

    i went with the SGP full body kit, only because it came with protectors for the antenna band.

    with my iphone 4, I had Power Support Crystal and I really loved them, but my antenna band got fairly scuffed by the bumper cases and whatnot.

    Thought I'd give the SGP kit a try this time around

    I had a zagg on the back (got a great deal $5), then changed to a phantom skinz matte back with matte sides. Absolutely love the phantom skinz. It's a urethane (rubbery type) instead of the hard type cling on types. The urethane ones are 'self healing" and don't get all scuffed and scratched like the cling ones do. Also, zero finger prints with the matte back. The zagg was pretty good at repelling finger prints as well IMO. I like the rubbery type for the back bc you can set it down on a desk and/or couch and it wont slide so easily. It provides a nice grip when holding the phone. Phantom skinz are a great buy, highly recommended.

    why would one choose wet install over dry install or vice versa?

    Wet install allows you to Slide it once on the device while installing it. Dry install does not move once "clung" to the device.

    I used the power support crystal on my iPod touch 2 years ago and it's still holding up strong. Just ordered another set from power support for my pre-ordered 4S. Can't say enough good things about this protector. Definitely worth the money.

    Possibly.. I kind of made the assumption that the screen thickness will do enough to barely lift the camera lens off a table. Could be wrong, but I also haven't had any scratches on my HTC Evo and that thing has the camera protruding from the back.

    Nope, the skin is thick enough to keep it elevated.
