    Is anyone planning to get this done, or have done it already? Any impressions out there?

    I got it done on just the black iPhone 7 -and it looks great! The guy was working on putting one in a jet black when I went to pick mine up and I thought it looked good!

    They have them in stock already? I didn't see any on their website. I guess I have to check the stand in the mall.

    I didn't see it on the website either, but I went to the mall yesterday afternoon and asked the guy at the booth and sure enough they did! Installed mine in about 20 minutes.

    It's on the website now. There is a Ghost Armor kiosk at one of my local malls. There is a Zagg Kiosk at another local mall. Which one does everyone recommend?

    The Kiosks are the way to go in my opinion. Let the pros install it!

    Whichever one that has less of an orange peel look and rubbery feel!

    Ghost armor used to be more clear than Zagg but I haven't used a protector in years. Just want one to cover the back of the jet black.

    Ghost Armor covers the back and sides and Zagg covers the back.

    Montgomery Mall in North Wales. About 15 mins north of me :)

    Zagg is at the King of Prussia, which is about 15 mins away as well.

    Yes. I live on Blue Bell too!!!

    I've had both, but to be honest, it was a while ago, so I need a refresher.

    Can anyone post a few pics and the prices for what the wraps cost for the jet black? My 7+ is coming in tomorrow and just wanted to see how these looked.

    Thanks!

    Has anyone used the ghost armor tempered glass? If so, can you comment on it? Thanks! I have zagg glass+ installed and it's lifting at the edges after 3 re-installs already.

    I just called the Montgomery Mall and Ghost Armor hasn't been there in a while. My bad. Off to Zagg at the King of Prussia Mall I go.

    Been there done that. Kinda of a pain, but at least Zagg is fairy close by. I'm thinking of going for the hd or hdx front and regular back.

    I have it on my iPad Air 2. I think it's been about 2 years exactly now. It's been holding up pretty well.

    A little off topic since I'm looking at Zagg. I'm thinking of going for the hd or hdx front and regular back. Zagg doesn't offer the full body protection like Ghost Armor. How scratch resistant or lack there of is the iPhone 7 black sides?

    The lady wanted to head to the mall today to grab some things, so I decided to go ahead and get the full body protection at Ghost Armor while i was there. It seems to have changed into a Cell Armor, but nonetheless went ahead with it. It was $40+tax. Tempered glass front and regular clear black. The back is a little less amazing looking, but I am much more inclined to rock it caseless now (at least at home and at work).

    That tempered glass looks horrible. Don't they have one that covers most of the front?

    I have a zagg on the back, but looking for more protection. Think the JB sides will scratch pretty easy. Oh well, just enjoying it for now.

    You can rock it caseless with the full body protection no doubt. I'm not digging the back with all the cut-outs on the sides. The sides are more apt to peel and get dust/fuzzies caught up in the cut-outs and folds.

    Can you post pics? I may give it a shot. My local mall Zagg kiosk charges $41.99 plus tax for hd front and regular back. One of the keys is having more grip so it's not slippery like a bar of soap. JB sides and regular black sides same material thus scratch easy as well?

    It's not obvious at all that you have anything on your iPhone. Looks great - I'm definitely going to pay $40 to have someone deface my JB 7+.
