Protect Your iPhone 5 From Scratches with a Terribly Ugly Half-A**ed Free Solution
Worried about scratching the back of your beautiful iPhone 5? Don’t want to wait for an official InvisibleShield to be released from ZAGG or the other film protector companies? Maybe you’re just cheap and don’t feel like shelling out the $30 to protect your $200+ iPhone investment?
Well, if you don’t mind having an incredibly ugly jimmy-rigged version, look no further than the plastic film that arrives on the back of new iPhone 5 when it’s fresh out of the box. Just cut off the tabs that cover the glass and make it otherwise easy to remove, and you’re left with a fairly well sealed protective cover over the most vulnerable aluminum. It looks… well, absolutely terrible… but apparently it works, at least until you get a case, find a real scratch shield, or maybe just get over the fact that anything in your pocket 365 days a year will probably end up with some character building scuffs on it.
This post is kind of a joke and kind of not, but if you’re actually worried about scratches it looks like real ZAGG invisibleSHIELDs are available now and can be had for a slight discount from Amazon. Grabbing one of those is probably a much better solution than leaving the plastic on the couch.
