    Hi All,

    Looking to order full body coverage for my iP7+ Matte Black... should I go Glossy or Black? What do you guys think?

    Unless you have the new Jet Black color, go with matte. I had it before and it looks dope. :)

    The glossy ones have a tacky feel to it. Also you have to worry about the orange peel effect

    It would be great if someone had a pic of matte Black iPhone and matte BSE.

    is the matte grippy at all? does it cover all exposed edges or is there still a small amount exposed?
    the pics so far are not helpful without edge shots. I dont think these skins cover all edges.

    the glossy wrap is grippy af.

    Against better judgement I've gone with the glossy finish on my Matte Black (was hoping to get a JB kinda finish without the hassle of scratches etc). Will let you know how it looks.

    Thats the combo I have on my phone and it is what I'll call "jet black light". The color isn't as deep of a black, but it is shiny like the jet black. Its kind of a dark blue hue as well. Overall the grip is worth it to me regardless of the shoddy install job I did.

    Ok. So just installed. Still working out some bubbles, but I'm happy with the look.

    Yeah. Not much different feeling than the phone itself.
