Let's leave screen protectors out of this and consider only back and side protection. How do you guys feel about both? I find that "shiny" or "clear" skins look like they're covered in saran wrap. I haven't seen many skins in real life, but they all appear to reflect light making them very noticeable (BSE, SPG, GA, etc.)

I've recently discovered matte skins but I haven't found too many out there. Here is the most recent photo of the matte phantom skinz matte I could find on this site. Does anyone have experiences with matte skins? Does BSE have a matte skin? The phantom skinz looks great but feel free to recommend others. It appears that SPG had a matte skin for the 4/4S but I don't think I can keep my iPhone 5 naked while I wait for them to release one for the 5.

Which look do you prefer?

Well matte skins are even more noticeable.
