About the Carbon Fiber Series
The Skinomi Carbon Fiber Series Protector Film is a break-though in mobile protection technology. By utilizing state-of-the-art materials, the film offers effective damage protection without adding additional weight or bulk to your device. Essentially, you get the protection of a durable case without the excess weight. Every Skinomi product is carefully engineered and custom-fit to offer precise fitment for maximum protection and style. At just .1 millimeters thick, the Carbon Fiber skin is virtually weightless, yet incredibly strong and nearly impenetrable. The elegant film looks and feels like real, grade-A carbon fiber. It is not just a print, but texturally identical to threaded carbon fiber for that high-end look and feel.
Installing the Skinomi Carbon Fiber Film is easy and does not require liquid. The adhesive-side of the skin is specially engineered with a grid-like pattern that allows air bubbles to escape. This grid helps the skin adhere completely to the device by extracting gaps and pockets of air, which in turn prevents peeling.
Easy installation - Carbon Fiber Film does not require liquid Durability - Grade-A materials and unique adhesive properties create a long lasting protective solution Design - Precision manufacturing preserves your device's original design and does not affect functions Added Bonus - Original TechSkin Screen Protector Made in the USA

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My review is for the skin only. I use a different screen protector, so I don't know if the one included with the skin is any good.
I had the Skinomi Carbon Fiber skin on my Droid Bionic for almost a year and it held up beautifully. Just put it on my S3 and it fits well, looks fantastic, feels good, and should last just as long. Highly recommended.
The key to a good install is to keep your fingers wet with the included solution and to use plenty of your hair dryer to make it stick well and permanently. Don't use the hair dryer until you've got it just where you want it, because once you apply the heat, it won't move. Also, I recommend taking the back off of the phone and applying the skin pieces with the back cover off. Finally, if you ever find a corner coming loose, applying heat should make it stick again.
One thing you really need to know is that the different types of Skinomi skins are not just cosmetically different, the are completely different...
I have had skinomi screen protectors on previous electronics and they have always been great. This item was my first foray into their tech skin product line and I am left a little less impressed.
The quality is great, the carbon fiber looks and feels really nice but it does have its drawbacks. First it makes the phone pretty slippery, this is a big awkward phone to begin with so that is a big problem. Second it is harder to hit that already tough to press power button, the skin is thin but I still have to hit it with my fingernail most of the time. Lastly if you don't' get it set perfectly it will be obvious, dust from your pockets will line the edges of the phone. The skin is EXTREMELY sticky so getting it right the first time is necessary.
That being said I still can't recommend the screen protector high enough, it is easy to apply as long as you can follow directions and are patient with it. You can tell by feeling that a protector is on it but it is less...
Material feels good and appears to be of good quality. Instructions were clear and concise. Skin covered all aspects of my phone quite well.
Only a 4 star because it took me 3 times to actually get the front clear shield to stay in place when trying to press out the air bubbles. And although I felt I was very meticulous and slow in applying this film in a clean environment I ended up with a piece of lint right in the middle of my screen (minimally distracting). Also despite following the instructions to the nth degree and I waited a full 26 painstakingly long hours before I turned on my phone, I still ended up with 3 very small bubbles that just will not go away. (again minimally distracting) but also not the perfect look I was hoping to get after installation)
