I got the ghost armor in red for iPhone 5... not worth it.

    It doesn't cover the bezel so you can see the white on the front pretty much everywhere the back is okay, its 3 pieces now and they don't fit together very well, the sides are still horribly done, no carbon armor for the whole bottom, overall feels rushed. I recommend the iCarbon instead.

    Wow. I've never seen ghost armor. I agree with you. That is comically bad.

    the thing is when I had it for my 4 it actually looked better, idk if it was me choosing red of the almost hilarious cut outs but they failed this time around.

    It's the nature of the iPhone design. Hard to cover the bezel.

    This is why I only use their screen protectors and not their carbon fiber.

    Looks like someone forgot to test out the product.

    Wow that does look bad I hope you send/take it back!


    I got the clear for my mine (only back, no front)

    I'm considering taking the top and bottom pieces off and only leaving the piece that covers the aluminum on (because scratches are a lot harder to see on glass)

    and because the top piece doesn't look that hot, i'm fine with the bottom and middle but the top piece got a little messed up :/ I agree that it feels like the products where rushed, and that the pieces don't fit very well together (and they are all somewhat too little to fully cover what the section they should be protecting) they should have done one single piece for the back.

    Not sure if I would recommend the clear, I don't dislike it enough to take it back, but im not overjoyed by it

    Saw the clear on a white iP4 yesterday and was really impressed. First time I'd seen it in person. Was thinking of getting it today but now I'm not so sure.

    Well, I did get it today and am not impressed at all. For the cost, it's crazy. Watching the whole process was painful. Probably took more than 20 minutes. There was a young couple waiting for their install and they were still waiting when I left. Mine has bubbles under almost every piece. The front and back fit actually seems great. The side pieces leave much to be desired. Did not seem nearly as well done as the iP4 one I saw yesterday. They only had iP4 sample work to look at, and only in carbon. I think a lot of it depends on who's installing it.

    Beyond that - couple things I've already noticed. First, stuff seems to accumulate along the edges of the film. Second, fingerprints are much more noticeable.

    Overall, I'd think twice before getting it, and I'd watch the people installing before you do.

    Actually, unless they're not supposed to be there, they missed putting the pieces on the "shiny" section of the back. The main party's covered but top and bottom are bare.
