    Someone posted this photo over on the iPhone 6 wallpaper request thread, and the orange/red surrounding the phone caught my eye. What is it? A skin? Some kind of case? Paint?

    Definitely a stick on skin. Can see its "edges".

    Dbrand.com

    Slickwraps.com

    Decalgirl.com

    All some of the "bigger brands"

    I've used them previously with mixed experience. Not terrible deal when you catch them on sale. But for me just really weren't practical day to day. Protect from scratches but not bumps or drops. In my experience they were very difficult to get lined up perfectly/install and require use of hair dryer. Seemed I could never get seems perfect and was always a lint magnet in those place.

    Ymmv but they look cool

    I see. That's one thing I dislike about the Apple Silicone Case for my 6S. It's a lint magnet.

    I always found the slick wraps to be rather grippy. I will say that was nice. In theory, if you could install and line one up perfect at edges/seams it wouldn't be a lint magnet. I will say this though, good luck LOL

    Few more "tips"

    Amazon sells slipwraps and if you dig around can find them a little cheaper.

    Also, slick wraps has 42% off right now using code "school"

    No time like the present to try one when you can get it almost half off lol
