Early reports suggest the iPhone 5 is having some issues with both the black and white coloring chipping off the sides and back. And with the device being so new, there haven’t been many options for protecting it. For that reason I have been treating mine with great care.

I was thrilled when a Wrapsol front and back protector showed up today, and while I wish it also offered side protection, I’m glad to have it. I have not yet had the chance to put it on, but I thought we would take a quick look at what they have to offer.

From Wrapsol:

Wrapsol Ultra protective film wrap is the easiest to apply, strongest, smoothest and the most durable drop + scratch protection system system you can get for your iPhone 5 (new) — without compromising its design integrity in any way. Made from advanced high strength polyurethane and using a 100% dry application process that actively releases air bubbles, Wrapsol Ultra installs in an instant and helps prevent everyday dings, dents and scratches, even damage from falls from up to 6 feet while preserving screen brilliancy and touch sensitivity.

In the box are custom-cut films (front and back), a microfiber towelette, a squeegee and instructions. The films offer “the strongest protective film technology”. As the product page notes:

high-strength helps prevent impact + scratch damage

preserves screen brilliancy + sensitivity

glossy, optically clear, screen + back protectors

And, Wrapsol Ultra protective film wraps comes with a lifetime replacement warranty in recyclable packaging. You can learn more or order yours here on the product page.

MSRP: $29.95

What I Like: Dry installation; I’ve had good luck using their films; Available now

What Needs Improvement: I wish it came with side films too
