If you, like most of us, like the design of the iPhone 4, you may not want to use a full on iPhone case to get around the antenna issues that have affected this model. If that sounds like you, then this may well be the solution you have been looking for.
The nice people at TruePower have been kind enough to provide us with three iPhone ThinSkins to review and then giveaway to three lucky readers.
These ThinSkins are coloured films for the edges and rear of your iPhone 4 and provide great and robust protection from scratches and light knocks whilst remedying the antenna issue.
We received three packs of ThinSkins in Black, White, and Carbon Fiber, but there are a wide variety of colors including fluorescent, metallic, glossy and matte finishes to give your iPhone a unique look that is personal to you.
Immediately noticeable is the quality of these skins, they are tough yet flexible, and within about 2 minutes we had managed to fit the precision cut films to our iPhone 4. Even after sliding the iPhone around on a concrete surface the film managed to stay in great shape and did a perfect job of protecting the glass of the iPhone’s rear.
Compare these ThinSkins to the iPhone Bumper and the difference is obvious – the iPhone remains slim and stylish with the ThinSkins, and chunky and rounded with the Bumper. Whilst the Bumper will provide more protection in the event of a drop, it fails to protect the rear of the iPhone from everyday scratches.
ThinSkins come in packs with enough film to replace the edges a couple of times, although there is only a single rear film included per pack so if we would suggest one improvement this would be it.
Available to purchase from TruePower at $19.95 per pack, ThinSkins are a very inexpensive way to improve and protect your iPhone. If you buy a couple of packs, it is very simple to remove the films with no residue left behind and switch to a different colour to refresh the look of your iPhone 4.
Here’s our efforts after just 2 minutes, with a bit more care and attention we’re certain you could do a better job!
