    Could you post a few pictures of the skin on the phone?

    I would but my phone is my camera. I really cant praise the skin enough though. Plus the company is awesome. My last skin i ordered had a tiny imperfection that i could have overlooked. Emailed them and had another complete skin in my mailbox 4 days later and they didnt ask me to return the other one or anything.

    I have a question lol. Does the flash and front facing camera have a cut out? And if either don't does it affect the flash or front faced camera?

    The front camera has a cutout but the flash does not. I cant tell a diff btw the flash. The skin is just as clear as the glass so i dont know how it would affect it.

    As far as I know, some of these like Wrapsol and Power Support have not even been released for the iPhone 4, so I'm not sure how people can judge them.

    My vote based on actual experience is:

    Something other than ZAGG invisibleSHIELD

    I bought the Front Shield ZAGG invisibleSHIELD last week. It went on OK and the bubbles are working their way out. I don't mind the so-called orange peel effect. But the stickiness is driving me crazy, especially in the ultra-humid weather we're having here in the northeast U.S. right now. Worse, it didn't work at all with my new iFrogz case. The case peeled up the ZAGG IS on the bottom edge, so I'm going to replace it as soon as something better comes along.

    Wrapsol has been released. It appears there is some bad QC on the Wrapsol Ultras.

    You can say that again, KEEP AWAY FROM WRAPSOL. mine came with the box squashed, there is a scratch already on the protector, and it was missing the piece that goes between the volume buttons, im pissed as hell and keeping it until a replacement arrives. Im going to try BSE, bodyguards, or clear coat. IM leaning toward bodyguards because it gives u 2 sets for the price of one everywhere else.

    I was thinking about Wrapsol but leaning towards a Steinheil Ultra Coat now

    I've had both Zaggs and Bodyguardz and the bodyguardz look/feel nicer and they come with two shields so that if you screw up putting it on you can have another go at it right away and if you get it right the first time you can put a new one on a year later when the edges start peeling up.

    One mile up and soaring
    I'm a huge BSE fan. On my original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPad, and MacBook. However when I rec'd my BSE for my iPhone 4 today I was a bit disappointed to see the flash was not cut out. I'd like to know if it affects performance before I apply it.

    Flash needs to be cut out, or resulting flare will lower your photo's contrast.

    Best Skins Ever because it's the least expensive.

    IS on the screen is a bad, BAD, idea. Wish you saw my posts way back in the past when I compared IS and Bodyguardz. I liked IS on my iPhone 3G precisely because it is sticky. It made the phone grippy and I liked it. But I only used it on the back and definitely wouldn't use it on the screen. For that I used Power Support.

    I use Bodyguardz now even though it is not as sticky as IS. That is because the iPhone 4's back is FLAT, and the flat surface allows Bodyguardz to have enough grip already. And I like the Bodyguardz side protection. But I would not use Bodyguardz, nor any skin, on the screen.
