    Just got and installed this "Skin." Unlike some of the others I have seen (Skinit, Decalgirl etc) this actually has texture. It is not just a flat photograph of an image. This is a 3M material skin (no water needed) and it sticks well. The skin applied easily, any errors you see are due to my arthritic hands unable to perfectly align the small edges. :eek: In person it looks and feels great. The secret to a good install with this skin is that you need to hit it with a LOW warm hair dryer to "finalize" it. Actually I used a 500watt halogen lamp a good distance away. I have had other skins on other phones but this is the first one that had texture to it yet this is quite thin, comparable to the flat no texture ones.

    It also came with 2 (water required) screen covers which I didn't use. It comes in a number of VERY BRIGHT colors. There are coupons floating around, so use Google.

    I give these 8 androids out of 10. If they installed by themselves they would get a 10!

    I like the way the back looks, but I could do without the sides. The crookedness would bother my ocd self waaaay too much. lol.

    You can't even see it at a "normal" distance. The photos magnify it. It's only crooked because I have bad hands and can't hold such small pieces.

    Thanks for the write up and the pics. Looks like they are using the 3M Di-Noc material. I hear it is good stuff and was thinking of trying it out myself on a secret project. ;)

    Yea, I got fooled too until I read the fine print which says "excludes chromatics." :) You do get 2 screen protectors.

    Does it leave any residue when removed?

    Don't know, haven't removed it. :D Actually, no, because I had one on a MyTouch 3G which I removed before I sold it.

    Curious if this case protects the lens at all, does it still rest on the lens on a flat surface?

    have the blue version of chromatics, no its not thick enough to stop the lens touching the whatever surface you have it laying on.

    * to how thick it is it still fits in the HTC leather case

    Nice. I'm fairly positive that's the 3M Di-Noc material. Great alternative for folks who don't want to take the DIY route like I did. Thanks for posting the photos!

    So for any of you that have used this, does it make the phone too sticky-as in, does it slide in and out of pocket just as easily? And how are their screen covers compared to others? Thanks!

    Not sticky at all, regarding to sceen covers, everyone has an opinion, i find them to be great,super clear, smooth not tacky like some, with no orange peel effect.

    And for $6 odd dollars they are are at a great price for 2.

    **if you buy the cromatics it does come with 2 screen covers

    Not the "carbon fibre one" I got. It's a textured finish and slides in/out of pocket easily. Not sure about the solid colors though. Don't like their clear screen covers at all. I use Bodyguardz.

    Any chance you could post some pics of yours? Kind of curious how the colored ones look in person.
    Trying to decide between the carbon fiber and a red one myself...

    Thanks alot ;)

    i wanted a change recieved the carbon fiber chromatics today, they look real nice, and have nice feel about them.

    would recommend, better then going "naked" but not making the phone any larger if i were to put a case on it

    I just got mine in today. Haven't installed it yet but looks great, with a 3D effect, like real carbon fiber. I also got a clear TPU case, so I can still show off the carbon fiber with a case on!

    Do you have to order the screen protector separately or does it come with the chromatic?

    Dry Application – Yes that's correct! Chromatics are installed without the use of liquids!



    Yet in the video instructions, it states time and time again to soak the skin, wet the skin and re-wet the skin. Looks cool though!
