Iphone 4 Skins Review - 3 Top Skins

For this iPhone 4 skins review, I wanted to not only show 3 of the best places to buy skins for iPhone 4, but highlight some of the differences between them. Once you decide you would like to put a skin on your iPhone, it can be just the beginning of all the choices you may be presented with. There are lots of places to buy skins for iPhone 4, but not all skins are created equal.

Chosen for this iPhone 4 skins review are 3 of the best and most popular places to buy. Beginning with their similarities, the actual materials used and quality of the construction (including the sizing and alignment for cut-outs, etc.) are nearly identical. With very slight variations between them, they will all fit your iPhone perfectly. Typically, they all use a type of high-quality 3M vinyl, if careful, each can be removed and re-used without tearing or deforming, and should leave no messy residue. They also all use impressive, photo-quality graphics and many can be completed with matching wallpaper for your iPhone. And all are tough enough to protect your iPhone, iPad, etc. from scratches, dings and light, daily abuse.

Highlighted in this iPhone 4 skins review, and what may help you decide which to choose, may come down to what you actually want your skin to look like and some of the extras these companies offer.

The first one up in this iPhone 4 skins review is DecalGirl. Their skins go on easy, have a channeled adhesive to eliminate bubbles during application and are a bit thinner than some at near 1 mm thick, so you can still use most third-party cases. They have over 1900 designs to choose from and can adjust hue and saturation on most designs if requested; text can be added to their skins as well. Their skins for iPhone 4 cover the front, back and the metal band at the sides (which not all manufacturers do). Another unique option they offer with their skins is all designs can be ordered with a matte (my personal favorite), clear protective coating, in addition to the standard high-gloss finish most others use. Their customer service is top notch and very responsive. If you do happen to damage the skin during installation, they will send you a new one for the cost of shipping; sure to give you some confidence!

The next iPhone 4 skins review is GelaSkins, another popular maker of skins for iPhone 4. Their skins are a bit thicker than DecalGirl, so your iPhone may not fit some cases with the skin applied, but can be applied and removed just as easy. I hate to generalize, but where DecalGirl designs can be thought to include more “girly” or clip-art styles, GelaSkins designs seem more artsy as a whole. They have designs by 100+ artists and range from classic art style to contemporary street art. They also have an option to create your own custom GelaSkin by uploading your own images or using artists work from the site, though external images that are licensed cannot be used.

Last, but certainly not least for this iPhone 4 skins review is Skinit. One of the best things Skinit has going for it is that they make skins to fit over a whopping 5000+ devices . . . if there is an electronic device you want skinned, Skinit likely carries them. The other potentially big advantage they have is they offer a large amount of licensed designs to be used as skins; likely more than any other I know. A couple drawbacks are that they do not offer wallpaper to match their skins and their skins for iPhone 4 do not cover the metal band around the sides (like most DecalGirl and GelaSkins do).

When you don’t need the full protection of a case and prefer the slim profile of your sleek iPhone, iPad, etc., a custom skin is the perfect way to add personality to your devices. And hopefully, through this iPhone 4 skins review, I’ve given you 3 great companies to choose from . . . each offering you something a little different, but all offering high-quality products. I encourage you to check them all out, because the biggest thing that may determine what you choose is really your individual style and what sort of design you want.
