    Slapped this on today and very impressed. Took all of 10 secs to mount and looks classy. Comes with the crystal film for the front which is thick and extremely clear. I'll run with this for a while and see how it goes. Not concerned about the antenna problem as I don't hold the phone that way.

    Thanks. Looks nice. Is it just an adhesive skin or is it like a case i.e. removable and can be reapplied?

    Any more pics please? Any flash issues? Cheers

    Just received my SGP Carbon Skin Guard & Ultra Crystal SP today as well and I'm loving it. Going to wait for my black :apple: Bumper to arrive before install though. Currently using the Zagg IS full body and liking it as well. Took a little getting use to though but was a super easy install. In the end I think I'll remove the front Zagg SP and run with the Ultra Crystal and just layer the Carbon Skin Guard over the IS on the back.

    How did your Ultra Crystal SP seal up around the mic and home button cut outs? I have been reading posts that there is a problem in these areas with the Ultra Crystal SP.

    no issues with cam hole or big button - went on perfect - I degreased really well before applying- you can't even tell there is a film on the front...I've always been a PS non glare man but this crystal is better looking and pretty fingerprint free.....

    Quick to point fingers are we?

    Maybe some people prefer other companies for certain reasons. Maybe they didn't know about that site. Could be a hundred reasons why they cose Steinheil. ;)

    Actually, I think the front is a great idea (while ugly), because that glass breaks so easily.

    I bought from someplace in the UK off eBay and it cost me about $15 for 2 shipped from UK. It arrived real quick.

    I cant post pics here yet but I put them up on Flicker.

    Looks hot! So is the apple logo exposed or do they give you a clear protector for the logo like they do for the iPad.

    Damn, that looks nice. Too bad I don't trust myself without a case.

    It doesn't look like they give a protector for the logo

    I don't think they give you. It's the only thing holding me back.

    I love my Carbon fiber back on my iPad. No way I want the logo getting all scratched up on my iPhone.

    Thanks Pared and kappaz. I also don't want to scratch up the logo (which is easier to see scratches). Maybe I'll put this film on top of the wrapsol I have already on.
