    Anyone know if Zagg is hard to install? Is it a wet intall? I really want to go without a case but still want front/back protection.

    it is a wet install..it's not difficult - simply takes a bit of precision and patience..set aside 15 minutes to do it and you're golden.

    Does it feel like Inv Shield? I don't like that rubbery feeling.

    I kinda like the rubber/plastic feel to be honest, and know I'll be very much alone in that! Makes it far less likely to slide out of my hands and get itself a nice big dent in the bezel or shattered back/front.

    I've got the Zagg invisible shield (front/back/sides) and despite what some other people have said, I quite like it. Good trade off between a bumper (good grip) and no case (looks better).

    Takes a little time and patience to fit it (and a couple of days for the bubbles to vanish), but I'm very happy with it.

    I understand what you mean. I wanted it for only the back because of the grippy feel. I just can't stand it on front.

    Zagg is the manufacturer of Invisible Shield is does feel rubbery/sticky. If you don't like the rubbery finish, go for SGP products. There are other alternatives too (e.g. Power Support), but I had Zagg and now have SGP. So, I cannot comment on other brands.

    Search the forums. There are more than enough reviews on pretty much all screen protectors out there.

    My personal opinion on Zagg, it's a complete POS. Makes your phone look like a cheap toy.

    It's very rubbery

    The back went on a dream (the bit I can live with bubbles) as for the front the holes were cut slight off centre (for the speaker and home button) so I had to unpeel it and try to re stick and it looks crap bubbles and wrinkles everywhere - am waiting for a reply from zagg cs

    The zagg skin for the I4 was great , I helped my cousin install it on his phone , really easy if you get it really wet at first and then apply it on , the edges don't peel off like on the ones on the 3GS and iPod touch .

    Unfortunately , the skin do not protect your phone against drops , my cousin dropped his iPhone 4 with the zagg skin about 4 ft from the floor , and it cracked like crazy. I recommend a case:D.

    It is a total nightmare to install. Took me about 30-34 mins!
