    Skin Discoloration

    Advertisement



    I'm curious to know if anyone else has seen any discoloration on their protective shields whether they were of the Best Skin Ever or the Invisible Shield variety. I've got an IS on my 8310 at the moment but I've been using the OEM pouch that came with it in an attempt to prevent as much dust accumulating under the trackball. It hasn't even been a month now and I'm noticing that the shield is starting to discolor, has anyone else seen something like this?

    No discoloration issues at all on BSE, never used IS.

    You know they do use dye to color the pouch...

    Yeah, my old pearl was starting to discolor the skin, it took quite a while though. I figure better to discolor the 5 dollar skin than my device. Easily replaceable. I always buy extra BSE since they're so cheap.

    Ditto, my back skin on my pearl is fine, but the front skin, Im guessing from sun light, was the bad coffee-stained yellow color, so I peeled it off and put my extra on.

    Thanks, sounds like the protection of the BSE is hard to beat for the price! I may have to give it a go if my replacement IS starts discoloring quickly.

    Well IS has a 'lifetime' warranty, so Im guessing if it does they will send you a new one for free. Also from several things I read Im pretty sure IS and BSE are made from the same stuff, they're purchased from the same manufacturer but cut different, so it probably will discolor.

    I'd always assumed that the BSE and IS were very similar but not the same, ah well, learn something new everyday!
