Carbon fiber style and protection

Specifications

The Carbon Fiber Black-Skin protector for the iPhone 4 is cut to the exact dimensions you need. It is designed to stick to the back of your smartphone and key the back scratch free. It includes a squeegee for the install and a cloth for cleaning. You can order the skin soon for $9.99. It is not real carbon fiber.

In Use

The Carbon Fiber Black-Skin is a cool protective skin for the back of the iPhone. If your iPhone 4 is like mine it might have some scratches on it from carrying it in cases without protective film on it. Those scratches bother me each time I see them. The Carbon Fiber Black-Skin film is a solid piece of black plastic that has a thicker feel to it than those clear films.

The black film doesn't have an Apple logo cut out, but it does have a cut out for the camera and the flash. The Carbon Fiber Black-Skin applies like any other scratch film for the back of the iPhone 4. You clean the back of the iPhone 4 with the included cleaning cloth and then align the Carbon Fiber Black-Skin. You stick the skin down and then smooth it with the included squeegee. The install needs no liquid and is very easy to do.

The skin looks really cool, it has a very noticeable carbon fiber style weave to it. The skin will still allow you to use some cases and looks especially good with the Gasket case from id America. This is a great protective skin for the user that likes high tech style.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Covers scratches on your device

Cons

  • Covering of the Apple logo may bother some
 

Conclusion

The Carbon Fiber Black-Skin is a cool protective film with lots of style perfect for covering scratches already on your iPhone 4 back and preventing new ones.
