Most people do reviews on a product as soon as they get them or start using them but I decided to take a different approach and do a review of a Tmobile TP2 bodyguardz with the both views, as soon as I got it and after a few months of use. So lets start with my initial feelings and reactions during installation and right after installation.

FYI: Bodyguardz did not provide me with the this product or pay me in any other form  to write this review. I bought the product myself and decided to write a review on it.

Pre installation and Installation (Red= Con, Green=Pro)

  • Way too many individual pieces. I really wish they consolidated some of the pieces together. It would have made installation a lot more easier and accurate
  • Two full sets. Really good idea because I did not install the first screen protector properly and got some dirt under the screen.
  • Pieces were not cut exactly to the shape of the Tmobile Touch Pro 2. I did not install everything properly but even if I did there would have still been exposed areas of the phone which I think could have been covered if the pieces were cut to the right measurements.
  • The body guardz adds some much needed traction to the phone. Prior to installing body guardz the phone slipped out of my hands a few times when I was trying to open the keyboard but after installing the body guardz I have not had the problem
  • Too thick. As soon as I installed the protector I was disappointed at the thickness of the screen protector. The protector really affects the tactile feedback of the power button, volume buttons on the side and the 4 buttons on the bottom of the phone. The answer, power and end buttons as affected the most, I can barely feel the buttons being pressed and the home and back buttons have a little more movement but I was still disappointed.
  • It does not feel sticky or hard to maneuver on the screen when using the stylus. This might be because I was used to the bodyguardz from my fuze. However, compared to bare screen it is a little sticky and the stylus does not glide as easily but I assume you will have some change in the feel between having a screen protector and no screen protector. Eventually you will get used to it and it will not be a problem at all. Sensitivity is also not affected after installing the protector.

After few Months of Abuse:

  • Still too thick and lack of feedback when pressing the buttons gets annoying at times.
  • Some of the edges of the protector on the sides are peeling off. This might be just because of the abuse it goes through
  • Collection of dirt on the edges of side edges of the protectors and exposed part of the phone. (Just gets annoying and ugly to look it)
  • Good at standing up to abuse. Yesterday, I had my phone on the hood of my car as I was cleaning my car and after I was finished cleaning I went to back my car into the driveway. I forgot the phone was on the hood and drove out of my drive way and reversed my car on to the driveway and then I realized my phone was gone quickly looked for it and saw it on the street with the battery out and back cover off and a SUV just passed by and missed it by inches (PHEW!!! my heart stopped when I saw that SUV miss my phone by inches). I put my phone back together quickly and inspected the phone for scratches of damage and I do not see a single scratch or dent even on some of the exposed edges of the phone since it fell face down.

Taking pictures of the bodyguardz is hard. For one I do not have a great camera and two I do not have proper lighting equipment. I am sorry for the lack of photos but here is one decent photo I was able to get.

    Few other thoughts:

    It is really invisible. I have handed the phone to few of my friends and said I have a phone protector on there and they don’t even notice it. They give me a puzzled look and I tell them to look closer and then the realize it. Overall I like the protector and I would recommend it to other people but first I would like to try some other protectors like Invisible shield and few other protectors before I say that this is the best full body protector. If any of you have tried any other protectors or have a different view on bodyguardz let us know in the comments section below.

    1. i have one on my fuze that is incredible. i got it on ebay actually and the box said “skinomi” on it i looked for a website and everything but i couldnt find one. however, by far the best body guard ive ever used, super accurate cutting job, most pieces consolidated… i think 6 or 7 peices for the fuze and 6 or 7 is really necessary for the fuze given the shape. ive had it on for a good 6 or 8 months now and no peeling up whatsoever, like you said screen is definately stickier than with no screen protector but you will always have that with the scratchless protectors. minimal dirt collection on edges of protector. installation was fairly easy for me but others might have difficulties, it requires you to spray the protector with a solution (so the battery has to be out of the phone and you shouldnt use it for at least 8 hours after application.) the solution made it easy to position the protector on the phone because it “floated” on the solution, then you have to squeege the juice out from under that bad boy… thats where its tricky keeping that thing in place and still rubbing your credit card up and down it. definately worth the 20 bucks for it… it did only come with one set of protectors though…
