We’d like to thank Ghost Armor for sending us one of their new custom cut protective covers for the T-Mobile G1. The kit includes a sheet with the cut-out protective panels, a spray bottle of solution for positioning the panels, and a squeegee for getting the air bubbles out.
The entire process took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. The rear panel was the hardest to get set because of the wrap around nature of the corners. You need to spray both sides of the cut-outs in order to place them, but that spray solution keeps the mild adhesive on the cut-outs from sticking around the corners – so it takes some time for the in-position rear panel to dry and start to hold onto the corners properly. Finger pressure seems to be the way to go.
The rest of the panels were easy to place except for the one that frames the display, since the sides of it are so narrow. You need to be careful to not stretch this piece when pulling it off the backing, and it is going to be a bit tricky to get it to line up straight. I did a half-decent job, but probably should have taken another shot at it.
The other panels were painless to position.
I didn’t manage to get out all of the air bubbles, as you can see in the photos, but I did an OK job of it. I just don’t have the patience to spend an hour or so making sure everything is perfect. It’s good enough for me.
One dry, I tested out the device. First thing I notice is that the new shiny surface on the phone offers much more grip than the original, not that I think it needed it. I also noticed that the edges of the protective panel are very noticeable, and not in a good way. You really feel them when holding the device, and I didn’t like that at all.
In terms of being tough, though, Ghost Armor really works. Just take a look at the video below to see how it stands up to some abuse.
If you are tough on your phones, a solution like Ghost Armor is probably the way to go. The full body kit costs US$24.99, while the Ghost Armor for the screen only costs $14.99. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
This video is available in high quality mode on the YouTube website if you don’t see it above. You can see the details far better in HQ.

I’ve heard the air bubbles dissipate after a few days… Let us know if that’s true?
Unfortunately we’ll never know. I had to return the phone today, so I had to remove the Ghost Armor already. The docs with the kit said that “the clarity would improve” after 24 hours of drying, which it did, but that didn’t seem to get rid of the real bubbles.
Wow that is impressive! How did the drill not go through the film? also did it have any affect on the touch at all?
It was a screwdriver, not a drill. And no, no impact on the display except that it was a bit grippier.
I am thinking about getting this on my G1. I am wondering though did you notice if the screen had any more glare from lights. With it being glossier it might be harder to see the screen in direct light. That is what I am thinking anyways.
I didn’t notice any difference in that respect. I’m not sure that it is any more or less glossy with the Ghost Armor on it.
How difficult was it to get the sides of the armor to adhere? Do u have any tips? I ordered the armor after seeing your awesome review.
It wasn’t really easy, to be honest. You have to get everything pretty soaked with solution to position it, but then it has to be well on its way to drying in order to get it to stick to the bends. You have to try to work the fluid out with your fingers and just hold it in place as best you can. Just keep pressing it down – eventually it will stick.
I was thinking about buying this for the Samsung Glyde because I’m pretty hard on it, and I hate the bulkyness of plastic cases. Would you recromend me buying it?
This stuff is pretty tough. I imagine it would work well on most any phone.
Its really impressive but if you remove it does it leave a sticky residue ?
No residue at all.
Getting a G1 tomorrow and wondering if I can have someone else apply the covering for me b/c I don’t want to mess it up. Think they’ll charge a fee for that?
Yes you can have a pro do it depending where you live but it will cost an extra 10 dollars for them to do it for you but its worth it, you don’t want to mess up and make it a waste of money…
i was wondering how much those cases are and if anybody knows if there’s a place or a website that is near long beach so that i can buy one please reply back thanks
Makes the white look pearl clored. Nice
Ghost Armor is absolute garbage I had it installed at on of their kiosks for $35 and have had to have it reinstalled 4 additional times at $15 each time = $60 + $35 = $95.00!!! This product is garbage has massive orange peel that sets in, starts to peel off after weeks of use and the customer service stinks, send an email and see if you get a response – I would not suggest this product to my worst enemy – you will have better luck wrapping your phone in saran wrap then shelling out money for this money pit product
I have not had the product long enough to comment but the customer service I received was top notch. Both times I had a response the same day! Installed it on my HTC Touch pro 2. It is a bit difficult to install but I think it is worth it. It does look much better the next day.
ghostarmor is cool
