This Black skin set they preview actually looks like it is not that bad. With good looking cut and quality (not that I would ever use one).
I know its farfetched but maybe these skins might be a decent solution? A clear case being a good complementary product to prevent peeling?

MANY THX for sharing this w/us,PyroSporker!

I went ahead & ordered the matte black one,about $13 (USD)

This product is a sticker, they make that pretty clear in their description, so it will likely be quite different than, what I find to be hideous, wet apply "protecting products" like Zagg (Xtreme Guard, Ghost Armor, Skinomi, XO Skins, or bestskinsever, etc. etc. ad naseum)
Smart Skins will likely peel easier at the edges. You probably know this, just an FYI to others.

I'll post as soon as it arrives & an update a couple weeks later on the durability.
Crazy fast processing/shipping:5 DAYS TOTAL from U.K. to U.S.

The quality actually surpassed my expectations.The material is definitely more substantial than a sticker,but,just shy of a full-fledged body skin.

Applied properly/aligned,this skin/decal will look great.A steady hand is essential & a magnifying lamp is suggested to facilitate a quicker/straighter alignment/installation.(You can peel-off/remove & re-install as many times as necessary for a proper installation/application).

As for concerns regarding the edges peeling,just follow the mfgs recommendations/instructions (a blow dryer after applicaton to seal the edges) & those concerns shoud be put to rest.
The kit comes w/decals to cover virtually the entire phone:FRONT/BACK/EDGES,but,I believe I'll go w/keeping the backside covered & leave the rest alone.
