Scratch Proof Covers, BODYGUARDZ

I have now had a BODYGUARDZ, scratch proof cover on my iphone for about four months and have decided it is time for a review. This cover has proven itself over the past months as a strong defense against the hands of a five year old and a dirty handed plumber. All I have to do is wipe it down with a microfibre cloth and it look as good as new. I was a little apprehensive at first, while reading the instructions, that I had to wet down my phone to apply the film. The process, after the initial spraying of the phone, was pretty easy. Corners were a bit tricky but with a little perseverance it all came together in the end. From their Australian website, ordering was easy and delivery, fast. There is an installition video on the website that gives you a run down of the process. This product comes highly recommended and is the only cover I use on my iphone.
