    I just recently ran across Luckylabs, and i am debating whether or not to get one of their regular colored iphone spectra full body skins.

    Yet i want to know first if these skins ever cause an issue with the flash on the iphone camera? (im thinking about getting a white or light colored skin)

    And do they come off easily, or leave a residue(especially after a long period of time)? I tend to pop my iphone in and out of my case alot for docking, and to use various cases.

    Alos can i place the skin on top of a screen protector?

    Last and finally, do you get one set or more of the full body wraps? i know the wraps for the band usually come in a set of 3.

    First off, let me just say that Lucky Labs is great! I've ordered a bunch of stuff from them since getting my 4S.

    I haven't heard of anyone having flash issues with the skins on. But I can't say from personal experience, as I haven't tried out their lighter skins (I have their black carbon fiber Teksure skin). You could probably email them to ask.

    They come off very easily and don't leave any residue. Though if you take your phone in and out of cases a lot, you risk messing up the wraps at some point. Also, since they're vinyl you have to take care not to stretch them out while applying them.

    I don't see why you couldn't put the skin on a screen protector. But on the back of the phone, the skin basically is the screen protector. And if you ever want to take the skin off, the screen protector is going with it.

    For the full body wraps I think you only get 1 set -- a color for the front/back, and then another color for the sides.

    Ah, thanks.

    Actually i asked about the screen protector since i have one on the front of my phone, not the back.

    The flash is the only thing really worrying me, and if it may discolor, which so far i have yet to see anything about that so far.

    The white carbon fiber back caused issues for flash with me. Im not sure if it was due to the light color or not but the cut out for the flash wasnt exact. Even after realigning it several times I couldnt fix the flash problem but this was a while back and they may have made it better by now.

    I have the Nezuko Wood Teksure Skin on the back of my phone and I have experienced zero flash issues to this point. Went with that particular design as I wanted to go with something slightly different and am still not sure how I feel about the wood design in general, but haven't run into any sort of camera related problems in any light. And I've taken a lot of pictures since having it on.

    Pictures of phone and couple of example pictures in different light.

    I was also wondering about how these skins would work over a screen protector. I am using Power Support Crystal front/back on my iPhone 4s. We all know that the screen protector does not sit exactly on the corners of the phone front/back and there are slight gaps (very slight). I was wondering how the front or back wrap pieces fit ontop of the screen protector, if the lucky lab is a tad bigger it may just hang off the screen saver and come off easily. Anyone get what I am saying? Or have any experience with the wraps on screen protectors?

    Wow it doesnt seem to affect it. But im wonder more about the regular spectra full body, the simple color ones. (im interested in like the matte black/white if they cause flash issues)
    Im also thinking about the brushed metal.

    Don't you recon if the cut out on the wood one works the cutout on the colored ones will work? I have been using their products without issue for a while now without issue. NO I have not tested it on a colored screen protector but I have also NOT seen any threads posting such an issue..... and believe you me, if it was an issue 100 or more threads would of been started.

    All the various wooden effect iPhone covers I see on here look awful. They remind me of the cheap vinyl people covered their kitchen drawers in in the 70s.
