The Clear-Coat phone skins introduce a whole new way of protecting your phone from scratches and scuffs. Today I have the Aurora, as well as the Full Body Protection skins to review.
The packaging that the skin sets come in is actually very pleasant to look at. A nice, black box with the Clear-Coat logo on the front. It also tells you which product is inside, as well as “100% Clear Custom Engineered Protection”. All of the above has been printed in a raised effect too, so it is not just a plain box. Oh the back of the box it tells you what is in the box, as well as some specifications for the product.
Once you get inside the box, you are greeted with a plastic sleeve that holds the contents:
Custom Cut Clear-Coat – for front, back and sides
**In the Aurora package you have both the Aurora screen protector as well as a Clear-Coat screen Protector, just in case you do not like the Aurora on the front of your phone.
I will admit that when I first saw the bottle of Application Solution, I was kinda nervous about what I actually had to do with it. The instructions soon cleared this up for me, but didn’t make me feel any easier. In all honesty though, there was no need for any worrying on my part.
The installation process is the same for both the Aurora and the Clear skins. Click the image below for full size instructions.
Once you have done all of the above, the end results are amazing. After applying both skins to separate phones, I have no air bubbles left and because of the thinness of the skin (.0006″ thick), there is no intrusiveness to the phone – this was the case for both skins. The Aurora skin, however, adds something extra. When you look at the phone from different angles and in different lighting settings, the skins projects different colours. This not only keeps things fresh, but is also a good conversation starter.
A few days after applying, I had to remove the Aurora skin from the front of my phone and replace it with the Clear-Coat protector. I found that the Aurora screen protector was interfering with my eyes and also colours whilst playing games, etc. The eye interference is probably something that does not affect everyone, but I felt I should mention it, just in case.
Overall, both sets of skins were very simple to apply, even with having to use the solution. They both also do their job very well and aside from the slight issue with myself and the Aurora screen protector, everything else is still applied and working as it should be.
Clear Coat skins are available for a wide range of devices and also available as a ‘Real Feel’ skin, as well as the Aurora and Clear-Coat. All devices, products and prices can be found on the Clear-Coat website.
