Skins for your phone are a thing like cases and covers and something I do not dabble to much in but we ordered some for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 to try out and of course some cases, the prices on these vary in price and also location is a factor with taxes and customs and this one cost 20 sterling in total from the UK as I was looking around to see what is on offer the price including shipping does not warrant a purchase in my book you may as well just get a case locally like the OtterBox thin shield case for example.

Maybe I picked the wrong skin up but this one in particular offers no additional grip nor has it any side skins for the phone or cover for the fold area which is kinda lame however it does look nice on the phone and again to be fair to them they have a big selection and some with textures that will give you a better grip, I you drop your phone with a skin on it will be a hit and miss on this one on how it lands and with the sides and flip mechanism not protected I think I would rather take a chance and still leave the case on which I can say makes no difference and the would be the safer option, I would like to go caseless but with this skin on I will not and will keep searching for other options.

To be fair though they have lots of nice skins on their site and worth a look so check them out and we may just revisit XtremeSkins and pick something else this time. They are simple to install by the way so that is one good thing to take out of it and if you have never done these skins before the company has instructions which I completely ignored and still got it done. It will stop your device from getting scratched on the rear and front which overall is not a bad thing.
