    For anybody wondering, my Skinomi shield just came in. Application was easy, it covers the ENTIRE glass portion of the front (even on the curved glass it goes on smooth and doesn't lift like you'd expect), holes were cut out perfectly, and I couldn't be happier! Every time I install a Skinomi shield, it reminds me why I would never buy from another manufacturer!

    Did they mold it to fit the curved glass?? I don't see how you wouldn't end up with folds in the shield. Can you take a pic of what it looks like for the Icon crowd?

    Is the skinomi gummy or smooth?

    no but they are very soft and when the moisture leaves from under the screen it adheres to the glass very well. Its not like plastic like Zaggs shields are

    its smooth but I can see how one may call it gummy. Its much soften then that of a Zagg or verizons shield. I can take pictures of it as soon as I'm with a camera other than just my icon

    I found a good screen protector its called fosmon on best buys website fits good the sides in top are cut in more so you won't have the issue of the screen protector coming up on the sides. Pretty happy with it so far.

    The vzw branded ones are terrible. I ended up tossing them. It was like swiping rubber, not glass.
    yea vzw protector is rubbery, the worst protector I've ever felt waste of money

    Has anyone found a good screen protector that they recommend yet? I just picked up my icon, and this vzw thing is horrible. I have to get something else.

    Just checked the Ghost Armor website ghost-armor.com. They finally have a skin for the Icon. There's a kiosk near my house so I plan to just get the screen protector.

    Haven't had much time to do anything with it yet... I reset it when I got home because I didn't install the backup when I activated it, because my backup is going to be more than 2GB (restoring now). But the screen is beautiful. It's only a few mm taller and wider than the 928, so the size is about the same. I ordered the Incipio Feather for it from the WPCentral Store. I'll need to find better screen protectors - I hate the one from Verizon. It has just the rubbery texture that I wanted back in my Windows Mobile days when I was using a stylus on the resistive screens. But not so great for swiping with your finger.

    I love my Skinomi on my Icon. First time I have ever used one and so easy to install. This will be the only screen protector will ever buy for my phones. I even put one on my wife iPhone 5s.

    I'll have to look at the Skinomi. I forgot to look when I got home, and the phone was just sitting there for a long time charging and installing my backup, so I didn't think of it until I went to bed and laid there arranging the start screen.

    Ok, I'm looking at the Skinomi now, and it says:
    Grip-improving ridges assure smooth feel while making the device easier to grip and hold.
    Just so I'm clear, you guys are telling me that this stuff is slick and smooth to glide a finger on, and swipe? Just looking at the picture with the pen trying to poke through it gives me pause, but if you're telling me that this thing is slick, I'll go with it.
    Thanks!

    Amazon.com: Evecase Screen Protector Variety Pack with 2x Clear and 2x Matte Anti-Glare Film for Nokia Lumia Icon (929) - 4 Pack (Verizon Version Compatible): Cell Phones & Accessories
    Just bought myself these bad boys. We'll only see once they arrive whether or not I get only what I pay for, but the reviews looked great (the only bad ones were for those who thought they were ordering for a 1520).
    My Icon came in the mail on Tuesday the 1st and I've kept the screen cover (with button labels and all) on it since then. I don't know why I'm scared to take the darn thing off

    so i put on my Skinomi... liking it so far. just added it so I'm still waiting for the full drying process to happen.

    once you apply it, you can't reapply it? I noticed the holes along the top for the speaker, sensor, etc. are aligned well but I would like the bottom hole for the microphone to be just a tad better but I don't want to ruin the whole skin just to adjust it (the mic hole appears to just barely clear the cutout but I'm not sure).

    I also know there is a Lifetime Replacement Warranty. However, has anyone used that warranty and how restrictive or extensive the warranty is?

    I don't like the Verizon protectors either. It feels rubbery and tacky. The protectors that they had for the 928 were much better. I think I'm going to go naked (nekked?) until I find something better.

    I picked up the Skinomi, and it's better than the Verizon branded protector, that's for sure. I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'll never use another brand, though. It is easy to leave marks on the screen - not visible when using the phone, but definitely visible when off. I do like the wet application method, though.

    You can reapply but it is very very tricky and will not be as clear. It is really meant to be a one time install. I've used their lifetime warranty multiple times on different devices. There is a form on their site that you fill out, take 30 seconds, and they ship you a new one usually no questions asked. Once they did ask me to email them pictures of the protector as part of quality assurance but that's it.

    Yes exact experience here. But what I do, since they have the easy lifetime warranty I ride it out as long as I can until the marks are annoying and then just process a replacement.

    a long time user of Zagg, I got the Skinomi installed. I hate that it didn't come with a a wedge and told me to use my credit card for the installation process. My cards are all jacked up. That's what happens when you use them.

    I like that its much smoother than Zaggs but it feels cheap. I am use to Zagg's feeling rubbery. Does Skinomi have one of them videos that proves its scratch proof and can withstand 200 pounds of pressure and will not break cause I would love to see that with how cheap the Skinomi feels.

    Will not buy again but Zagg did not make the shield for Icon. Hopefully, they will have it for the 930 which should be the same as Icon.

    Edit. One more thing. I do not like Skinomi's replacement process. There's printing and faxing involved. I actually emailed customer support about their mundane replacement process and told them we all have smart phones so why cant we just send a PDF to them filled but they have not responded to me. (Its been about a month) There customer service really sucks.

    On a side note I did email Zagg about making a shield for the Icon and they replied within 24 hours and told me that they will forward the suggestion over to their development team.

    P.S Zagg's replacement process is not mundane. Its

    This is strange. All of my screen protectors have came with orange wedges for the install (I can post a picture of them all when I get home) and their replacement process is absolutely nothing what you said. Fill out this tiny form http://www.skinomi.com/warranty.html and they email you saying its shipping. You don't even need to send the old one back.

    Yeah this is new they must have updated their process because before you had to print the form, fill it out and fax it back in. Well that is a relief because it was a horrible process. Maybe my email did get to them and they decided to improve their process.

    Anyways, you still have to send in the original

    Step 3: Send back the original
    Once you receive your replacement, please send back your original Skinomi item and include the invoice/order number. If you do not send back the original product, the item will be void of the Liftetime Replacement Guarantee and the item will not qualify for any future replacements. Return your original Skinomi product to:

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Edit.

    I bought it directly from Skinomi.com did not received an orange wedge.

    Included:

    • Nokia Lumia Icon Screen Protector
    • 1 Bottle of Application Solution
    • Installation Instructions
    • Lifetime Warranty
