    BodyGuardz available for the Napoleon

    BodyGuardz has a custom screen and full body "Guardz" available for the Napoleon:
    http://www.bodyguardz.com/Motorola_Q9_Napoleon_p/motorolaq9napoleon.htm

    I sent them a N so they could create a template. Just received it back. Great fit and great protection. Theses things are awesome. I use the screen protector (but they also have a full body Guardz) as I do not use a case, rather opting to carry my phone in my pocket.

    Btw - I inquired with both BodyGuardz and invisibleShield around the same time. BodyGuardz was the only one willing to create a custom screen protector.

    I had one on my old Q9C forever. I never used a case; alway carried my phone in my pocket, many times with my keys in the same pocket. My screen never got a scratch. Check out youtube, which has a number of videos (installation, use, etc.) on both BodyGuardz and Invisible Shield, which are functionally the same.

    do you have one on your nap?

    i was thinking the screen - would you go screen or whole body?

    thx!

    Yes, I have a "screen only" on my N. It's practically impossible to tell that there is something on the screen. This is the best $15 insurance policy for the Napoleon.

    I just purchased the full body. I can post a review whether it's worth the money or not when I get it if anyone is interested.

    nice! - so if you get the whole body - does it affect your typing speed or accuracy?

    Also - are these easy to get off if you dont like them?

    thank you!

    It shouldn't affect typing speed as it only covers the screen, silver linings around the phone and the battery cover. So nothing really to obstruct your fingers.

    they can be taken off very easily. All you have to do is peel it off, and it leaves no residue or anything to clean after taking it off if you were to remove it.

    Agreed, stuff works really well. Just got mine today also.

    As an fyi I've also used the same product from zagg.com and phantomskinz.com on other device over the years. They all work the same and work just as well. It is just a matter of who has the cheapest price is all or if they carry a product for the device you need it for.

    considering grabbing one of these...
    has anyone who purchased this notice any peeling of the sides or bubbling?

    better to get the full device or just the screen protection...
    i have never used anything like this on any other Q just wondering

    I have never had a "peeling" issue. I had on my Nap for only a couple of weeks; I have on my wife's q9C since it came out ... never any problems. Btw - my experience is with the "screen" only BodyGuartz.

    IMHO just get the screen protector. I have used these products on dumbphones like I mentioned. With that said on any type of corner our rounded edge it will start to come off over time depending on how you carry the phone. In my case I always have it in my pocket so that could be why. On any flat surface they work perfectly and I've never had an issue with them. As far as bubbling tho haven't seen it myself unless you do a bad job installing it and leave it with bubbles while it dries. Otherwise once it is on it stays.
