    i installed the nanostate alien skin last night, but ive got several small bubbles in it this morning, will these disappear in the next few days? Or should I remove it and try again? Other than them it's a good fit

    I've removed it and reinstalled, I'll have to see what it's like in 24hrs, if no better I'm just going nude, I've already put the onyx on so that should help

    If you don't shake the fluid well this can happen.

    Does the AlienSkin have the orange peel effect?

    Why do people put skins on the BACK of the phone?

    Um, I don't know, maybe... protection... Seriously though, I never lay my phone on its display so yeah I want the back protected so my phone stays in good condition.

    Well, there are groups of folks concerned with protecting their device, while there are other groups that are not. Those who don't care about their phones getting scuffed, scratched, dented, marked, or otherewise ruined, won't put a skin on thier phone. Then there are many who care about protecting their investment from scuffs, scratches, dents, and all marks.

    Personally, I did not buy a JB 7+ so I could show it off. It was my preference in color for ME and ME only.

    Yes that was sarcasm, that's why I added the "SERIOUSLY THOUGH", and the rest of my reply.

    Gods save us from people who think a cell phone is an "investment".

    Do I think it'll appreciate like fine art, obviously not but I just spent almost $2000 on two iPhone 7 plus phones. When it comes time to sell mine and/or trade it in on a new one, I want it in tip top shape, so yeah I'd call it an investment. I've always done well selling my used phones because they're taken care of and don't look as if they've been through battle.

    LOL....To-MA-to.....Ta-ma-TOE

    I protect my iPhone with a skin and case. None of which prohibit me from enjoying and loving my iPhone experience. Since I always plan to sell my iPhone after 1 or 2 years, it is indeed an investment. I want the maximum return after X amount of time. So I set out to protect my investment. My phones are in brand new mint condition when I go to sell them. So yes, it is an investment. Does this mean I don't enjoy my phone? Absolutely not.
