    i use the crysalusion on my iPhone 6s plus and iPads, works great as a protection against scratches, just wondering if you all this its a good contender for the jet black?, or would the bestskinsever be a better option?

    In my opinion I would prob go with the Bestskinever or something similar for added protection since it's so likely to scratch. Btw what company makes the Crysalusion case? I'd like to check it out.

    It's a liquid layer of crystal protection, worked great on all my other iPhones, no scratches but the Jet Black just worries me that little bit more, and I defiantly don't want to put it in a case, kind of defeats the object of having such a stunning finish.

    I've read some people talking on these forums about applying car wax to their phone. I'm intrigued by that but I want someone else to do it first before I do it.

    The metal surface is pretty hard to scratch under normal use. There's a chance that the solution doesn't work at all.

    Liquid protection that acts like glass for a phone. I don't buy it.

    It's worked great for my iphones 6 plus and iPad, 2 years and not a mark on them, I t was highly recommended on AV forums, but there not the same finish as the jet black, so bit worried it may not be enough protection this time

    You're going to be very popular in this thread when you get your phone! Excited to see what works best for your jet black 7. So far I just have the BSE skin on order, phone set to arrive sometime next week.

    they have the same "nano coatings" for cars suckers go run out and spend $1500 on. And then post photos online how shiny their cars are (as if being perfectly clean shouldn't be really shiny). It's the most ludicrous thing and gullible people I've ever seen. And Im sure it's a multi-million dollar industry with the product makers and installers/detailers laughing all the way to the bank

    Riddle me this. If they were that revolutionary and magical, then why have 0 car makers and 0 phone makers adopted it into their standard design/materials coming off the line with dozens of material engineers?

    It's HIGHLY likely more snake oil than fact on the claims

    It definitely could be. Could also be b/c it needs to be reapplied every 6 months. Car/Phone manufacturers might not want to have to deal with explaining that to the customer, providing application dates, since its almost impossible to physically see when it needs to be done. Wonder if any independent tests have been done on the claims of these solutions..

    You may want to look at Renaissance Wax, AKA: Ren Wax. Developed for and used by museums to protect lots of valuable items. I use it on things like damascus steel knives and my wife uses it on sinks, where it keeps the sink cleaner longer and holds up well. Google it and you'll see sources on Amazon.

    I think the truth is somewhere in the middle, meaning liquid protection works to a certain extent.

    I watched a video of someone testing a product called liquid armor by applying it to a phone screen and dragging it behind his motorcycle. The liquid coating was scratched badly, but he was able to peel it off and reveal that the screen was still flawless. So even though it looked awful, it did its job.

    So why don't manufacturers like Apple or Samsung incorporate it in their processes? Maybe cost, maybe copyrights, maybe because it's not a perfect solution (it still looks terrible if you abuse it). Who knows, but there are valid reasons other than the products being sugar water.

    You are correct liquids only work to certain extent, there is no technology at the moment to make something bulletproof , even spin coating and hard coatings cant take much abuse If you are careful with your device then liquids are fine, but if you drop it or scratch it particularly hard they will penetrate the coatings. For full protection if your a rough user it's better to use a film like Alien Skin.

    Tried to send message via the website, but it failed, then tried a message on facebook, not yet read some 30 hours later. I guess you are too busy to answer.

    Yeah I sent them a message through the site almost a week ago and still never got an answer :(

    Do ANY pictures or videos exist for onyx or alien skin? I want to see what it looks like when it's on the phone. I don't want to be the first person to try it out.

    I was wondering
    You'd think the company rep would be able to provide at least a real picture of them on the device...
