    Much too far from the waves
    Hey guys!

    So I kind of want to get a new look on my Incredible 2. I LOVE that its somewhat unique looking, but its still a bit on the bland side. So I would like to get something that spices it up a little and helps protect it from scratches and dings. Ive been looking at Phantom Skinz and would like to get into one of the Chromaticz skins and give it a little color. My biggest concern is the price and installation. Is it really worth the money and how difficult is it to install these guys? Are there better alternatives?

    Thanks!

    Take a look at the Skinomi brand. They have a carbon fiber skin that looks pretty sweet...

    I use their screen protector, and it is slick as snot. Love it.

    They got wood too :D

    EDIT:
    Wow, these do look pretty sweet! They come with matching "wallpapers" to make it really seamless too!

    yeah.. if i had better luck with battery life and didnt need the extended battery, i'd probably try these out.. they look pretty sick. i really like the wood designs.

    Just got the istyles in the mail today, applied it, and immediately took it off. It did look cool, but I know that the edges would collect dirt/dust and eventually fold/flare up, especially if you are storing it in your pocket. I'm dissapointed in it ;( Wont be buying a skin for anything else.

    might just be the istyles.. they are a lot cheaper than skinomi and phantomskinz.. there's probably a good reason for that. i've used phantomskinz (not the chromatics) before and definitely would say its very nice. but yeah.. the price being so cheap made me a bit too hesitant to check them out.

    I used the Seidio Innocase II for my Eris and loved it. I think the Active case is going to be a little bulkier though. Hope you like it.
    I have been looking at the Barely There case by Case-mate and the Feather Ultralight by Incipio as a seamless alternative to the Seidio Surface case.

    Ugh, I hope not. I don't need the thing being bulkier... damn I gotta look at things longer before I waste my money...

    Guess that's true, I am about to get a Kawasaki Ninja 650R in a few months.
