    just wondering for all of you out there who opted to use a full body skin instead of a case, how has your phone held up? how has the rim around the bezel held up with no protection?

    personally, i installed the best skins ever and it left the rim around the bezel exposed and i felt like it would get dinged easily still and switched to a case. i've been contemplating going back to a skin again but a bit iffy

    feel free to post up some pics!

    I'd like to know who has the best clear matte back protector (dry install only)? I was about to pull the trigger on the sticketboy matte sides and back. Thanks!

    had BSE on my first iPhone and it held up fine (the skin started peeling on the side pieces). Granted, I only had the phone like that for a couple of months before the sleep/wake button broke :(

    I have bodygaurdz on my iphone 5(black) for over a month. No peeling (like invisible sheild did) and the only scuff on bezel is a very tiny one (have to hold it up and look closely) from when I dropped phone on linoleum from my lap. Other than that no scuffs at all on bezel. The skin seems to protect enough where it is hard to get in between and scratch it (not impossible) and the rest of the phone, of course, looks brand new! Had the phone now since jan 1 so almost two months.
