    Quick pole :D;) I answered no as I dont use one on my 6.

    However I had a full body protector on my 4S and my 5S. For the 6 I dont as my water resistant case is a super tight fit already, not sure if my case would fit properly with a back skin.

    On my original 6, I had kept the original back protector on the back (I snipped off the front one). When I had taken my iPhone in to the Genius bar, the Genius told me that leaving that back film could cause the phone to overheat. I wonder if that applies to the back protectors as well? Do you think that Genius was right?

    Just to let you know, for some reason if you are viewing the threads on a mobile device in mobile mode the poll stuff doesn't show up at the top!? Probably why he didn't use the poll tool. I've been wondering about this for months and I finally figured it out. Lol so now I've just saved my bookmarks in the full site modes. Aggravating!

    I have Ghost Armor back skin only (no sides) and glass screen protector. It's nice having it there so I don't have to be super careful about scratching the back when removing/putting on cases, etc.

    I use this. Works great and no messy sides or corners. I'm mostly going case-less now and this gives the phone a lot of grip. Actually more than most cases I've tried. Also, it is case friendly when I do use my Apple leather or Caudabe Veil XT. I like a little extra scratch protection.

    Was looking for a back protector that fits with the veil xt. I switch from the veil xt to the rhino shield bumper, so I want rear protection from scratches while the rhino shield is on. Awesome you made my day.

    I had a Zagg film put onto the back of my 6 at the Zagg stand. Works great and adds a lot of grip.

    I have the UAG case and it has two holes in the back in an odd design. So what I did was cut a screen protector into a square the size of the rear of the iPhone and slap it up there and it sticks fine. Ghetto rigged I know but it works for me.

    Yes cause I want to keep Apple logo perfect. As soon as the factory plastic comes off my front and back gets installed at AT&T with full body Zagg HDX. The back is matte.

    I buy PowerSupport which has two screen protectors. One goes on the back (I cut out the camera location).

    No, I don't bother with a screen protector on the front. So I don't see a reason to put one on the back.

    Yup ... and it is shock resistant in case of dropping the iPhone ... ease the breakage problems I hope.

    Blue carbon fiber D-Brand for the iPhone 6, currently using the full coverage. Doesn't add as much grip as I was hoping for, but a huge improvement over the nude aluminum!

    That looks good or doesn't look if you get what I'm saying but are the edges of it rounded so that it doesn't drag when you move the phone in your hand?

    ----------

    You astound me! :D

    Seriously though is it possible to get a(your) wrap onto the phone and still be able to use a case(Apple silicon) and it not start peeling off after multiple times removing the case?

    I've been with iPhones since the 4, never used a case until the iPhone 6. I'm just not comfortable laying my phone down on the protruding lens.

    What I mean is is it like a plastic screen protector in that when you swipe your finger from the side of the screen onto the screen the screen protector feels rough or is it like with most glass screen protectors the edge of the protector is rounded so that when you swipe your finger onto the screen from the side you can't feel the edge of it.

    It's on the back of the phone so you're not ever swiping your fingers over it. Does not have rounded edges, it's a basic skin. I guess if you're sliding your fingers across the back you could feel a small lip on the edge. Same material as something like Best Skins Ever, Ghost Armor etc.

    Yeah I know it is on the back but I tend to move the phone around in my hand a lot and feeling the edge of the protector would drive me nuts.
