    After much research (a.k.a googling), I have stumbled upon many different protective skins and films:


    -Body Guardz
    -Phantom Skinz
    -Zagg Invisible Shield
    -Ghost Armor
    -Wrapsol Ultra
    -Clear Coat
    -SGP Ultra Coat


    -Power Support
    -Case Mate Clear Armor
    -Box Wave

    Questions to All:

    1. Which of the mentioned skins/films have the least "orange peel" effect?
    2. Which of the mentioned skins/films have the most "glass like" texture?
    3. In your opinion, which skin/film or combination is the best set up for the iphone 4?

    Right now I am contemplating between Power Support and SGP Ultra Coat. I've experience Power Support in the past and have loved the fact it feels like nothing is even on the iphone. I also heard SGP was similar if not better. But I really don't know, I'm really indecisive :eek:.

    Zagg sucks (well i think so)

    the front screen protector on it, ruins the Retina display and ive found if using a bumper and some other cases, the sides start to lift which is annoying!

    i went with the SGP Steinheil EX Protection Film iPhone 4 Ultra Crystal after great reviews, havent tried it for myself yet, but its compatible with the bumper so thats all i care about :cool:

    One mile up and soaring
    Skin for metal band sides and back - BSE - Bestskinsever.com Price wise, quality, and application.

    However, I do not recommend a skin for the touchscreen, regardless of orange peel or not. If you need front protection, which I don't think is necessary, PowerSupport or other "Film" for the front.

    Just get a screen protector from ebay you cant go wrong with .99 tag price, it's constantly scratches and you dont want to deal with process applying invisible shield. Static films takes 3 sec to apply and it's stays in place same way if not better.
