    Skins....Are they really worth it?

    Advertisement



    I went out and brought the full body skin for my pearl and honestly it made it look stupid... I understand they protect your bb in the long run, but if your not really rough with your phone is it really worth it?.. I mean if you get some fingerprints on them wipe it off right. The skins take away the natural luster of the bbp.

    Re: Skins....Are they really worth it?

    depends on the skin.

    bestskinsever, sheildzone, etc work great. and they keep the clean look of a NAKED pearl.

    bestskinsever. cheaper but doesn't cover sides

    shieldzone, more expensive lifetime warranty and covers sides.

    I don't really like the silicon covers. and i like my pearl naked.

    Re: Skins....Are they really worth it?

    I wonder, what kind of skin did you buy?

    I bought a great skin with a lifetime replacement warranty. the skin is barely noticable, but has a good, super thin rubber-like texture. It adds a good feel to holding the phone while protecting it and has left my pearl completely unmarked (even after quite a few drops and bumps). the shiny black case is pretty soft and can get scuffed/scratched pretty easily.

    out of all the BB owners I know, my phone is in the best looking shape.

    -edit-
    I bought mine at shieldzone.

    Re: Skins....Are they really worth it?

    Dude, I aint the smartest but believe me, I have some experience with alot of phones and if u aint got atleast some kind of a skin or case no matter how clean u are, sooner or later your pearl will look like, umm um lets just say really bad

    Keep it on, I know it looks weird and it sucks but the protection is worth it.

    I got a pink one from some site I don't remember the name of. It says BlackBerry on the back and has the bb logo. I never take it off. I am not the most gracefull(spelling) person you will meet

    I don't use skins. It's just a personal preference but I like the looks of the Pearl as is. I take great care of it though. Everyone has to decide for themselves.

    I use only a screen protector. I prefer my baby naked, and use a rubberized holster to carry it on my belt.

    i have a full body skin and I can't even see it... how did you apply it that it made it look stupid? Took me about an hour to apply the full body skin, you need to take your time to get it on and get all the bubbles out.

    In every situation. You take that protection off and your phone gets knocked up, you're screwed. It'll look like garbage. I have the shieldzone on my pearl, looks the same as it did out of the box.
