    If any of you guys can show the logo and apple look. If any bubbles or gaps between the skin and back.
    Thanks

    Here's a pic with my Caze ThinEdge on. You can see pretty much everything you need to know about the skin, including the "case friendly" sizing. I also posted a few pics in the thread jammerz provided above.

    Take a look at the links provided, it'll show you that there are some trouble with gaps in the GA's back matte finish in the transition from the clear black to the aluminum. However, the apple logo usually turns out flawless.

    I use the a matte back from sticker boy. It feels nice, almost like the original feel without any sort of skin protection. No bubbles or anything; virtually invisible. Installation is wet or dry.

    EDIT: See this post I made: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=16527056&postcount=422

    Wow its lookin stunning and so clear & the one which you have installed is a wet or dry installation ? And does sticker boy sells it separately like a one with wet installation and dry installation ? And how much you paid for this ?

    Hi,

    I would like to use this back screen protecter with my iPhone 5 with these two cases I recently purchased. One is this case by "Tech 21":
    http://store.storeimages.cdn-apple....icub&op_usm=0.5,0.5,0,0&iccEmbed=0&layer=comp

    The other case is this one by "Adopted":
    http://store.storeimages.cdn-apple....icub&op_usm=0.5,0.5,0,0&iccEmbed=0&layer=comp

    Do you think that this back screen protector will be able to fit properly with these two cases as well as a screen protector that I plan on using? Thanks! :)

    It's the same item for wet and dry. There isn't a different product for wet or dry. This one was done via wet installation with just 1-3 sprays of iKlear. It was simple. The matte back for the iphone 5 is $9.95, with code "CABLE" you can get 5% off.

    I think so. It's not bulky at all, so it doesn't add any thickness to the phone itself. Also, the cut is perfect, so there won't be any overhanging edges. I've actually put mine in a CandyShell case and it fit perfectly, there was no difficulty inserting or removing. There was also no damage to the back SP as well. However, I don't use hard cases for a long period of time so this was done for only a little bit.
