It reminds me of those bizarre vinyl bra things I have seen on a lot of cars in the US to protect against stone chips. I cannot understand the logic of avoiding the risk of something possibly looking horrible in future by guaranteeing that it looks horrible all the time.
That's great. A good case is still cheaper then getting a replacement phone or using the insurance to cover damage. (You can get a good case of like $10). I keep my phone for 2 years +, so the added protection amounts to really nothing for me.
