    I love this stuff! I went to the Ghost-Armor kiosk here in the Kierland Commons in Scottsdale and they did a fantastic job on the front, matte back and matte sides. No case needed now! Love it.

    Thanks GA!

    I would like to see it too. I don't know if I could ever do it but it does look intriguing.

    I've always had Ghost Armor put on my phone (and iPad) day 1 since the 3G. It's really no different than the Zagg Invisible shield. It would be a little difficult to see unless with pics. Unless you had them put the carbon fiber finish.

    Can't really get good pics of the front or back. Because its so clear and unnoticeable.

    Does it cover the chamfer because that's the most vulnerable part.

    Unfortunately, no it doesn't cover the chamfer. :( There's also nothing covering the bottom where headphone jack, speaker/mic and lightning cable goes.

    I'm interested to see the matte finish of Ghost Armor. Just a comparison, I installed bestskinsever on my iPhone. I use them all the time and prefer the coverage over Zagg. It looks like (compared to Ghost Armor) bestskinsever covers more closely to the switches and sim slot. And yes it covers the bottom area too but my pics aren't that great.

    i've never been a fan of skins on a phone. to be honest i'm really getting over trying to keep my phone pristine. i will however probably get a lifeproof case when they are released. i would love to take some underwater pics! also will be getting a 'life jacket' if they make them for the 5

    I just purchased this, and had them install this on Saturday at one of their mall kiosks. I had the front and back (matte) installed.

    I need to wait 48 hours before putting it in a case. I'm going to use my SwitchEasy Tones case, for now, but am thinking about getting a bumper. I'm looking at the i-Blason or the Photive Hybrid. Or, are their better ones?

    Any suggestions on the bumper? Comments?

    I didn't know an adhesive would stick to the back because of the texture.

    Ghost Armor eventually wears out and starts to crinkle and bubble over time. I've had to replace it several times and while its free to do this it takes time to redo. Additionally without a cover(I use a clear plastic that shows off the phone nicely), your phone will not be protected if it is dropped

    Why not? The texture isn't stucco. lol

    That's why you still need to use a case or bumper.

    I have been wanting to take my iPhone naked like I did with the iPhone 4. I barely had a scratch on the glass. I want to take my iPhone 5 out of the case but I am not confident in the build quality, and I saw a video where someone rubbed keys on it and at scratched up like crazy.
    I don't want to be tethered to a case all the time. I want to take it out the case for a few days here and there without worry.
