Dome skin for iPhone review

I love Domeskin. They're like standard film skins but are thicker, giving them an almost 3D look and feel. I have been using them for a week and, at first, I put them on because of the beautiful look and matching wallpaper. Almost immediately after that, I came to appreciate Domeskin for the wonderful feel and extra grip they provide for my iPhone. With Domeskin, when I place my iphone on a surface, it will stay in place and I don't have to worry as much about it sliding to its doom, or being nudged into oblivion. It just stays.

Also, the two Domeskin appliqués on the front of the iPhone make sure that your glass will be protected from scratches. That makes Domeskin not only much more fun than a regular skin, but more protective as well.

The downside to Domeskin is that they are not able to be used in conjunction with most cases. If you have a loose fitting or stretchable case then you may be able to fit it over the Domeskin, but it still might be tight, and you'd still likely have trouble removing it. Think of a Domeskin in lieu of a case. (You can, however, remove a Domeskin and then reuse it later.)

The good

  • Easy to apply and remove
  • Huge selection of images
  • Wallpapers to match
  • Great feel
  • Makes phone slip-proof

The bad

  • No protection from drops
  • Can not be used in conjunction with many cases
  • Addictive


Domeskin are great for anyone who wants to liven up their iPhone, and get better grip, with more substance that a standard skin but nowhere near the bulk of most cases.

Love them.

Dome skin for iPhone review


Adaptationla has the same type of skin except theirs glows in the dark and come with a home button skin too. I got one of theirs last year and used it for a while on my phone, then transferred the front pieces to my ipod. They have the new age glow, which last over 10 hours. I have a on my iphone and kept the home button skin on my iphone. Everyone always comments on the home button skin and loves it. Its worth checking out.
