Review: BodyGuardz Carbon Fiber Armor on ASUS Transformer Prime
We all love our Android devices, whether it’s a brand new Galaxy Nexus or the outdated Moto Droid we simply LOVE them. Our natural instinct is to protect the things we love, and BodyGuardz knows this. I first came across this Carbon Fiber armor at CTIA 2011 where the display model was a Motorola Xoom.
The Xoom was still a relatively new device at the time and I’d yet to see one personally. My first sight of it being encased in the black carbon fiber pattern was astonishing. The people working the BodyGuardz booth at CTIA were extremely helpful and even offered to print, cut and install these kits for a few of us. At that time, this was an unreleased product so we were stoked. It only took a few minutes for them to install it and I was sold. The protective kit made my 6 month old EVO 4G (at the time) look brand new and super sleek. To this day, my EVO is retired but still sporting the black carbon fiber kit that was installed a year ago.
I’m a sucker for a good carbon fiber print, and these guys nailed it. Recently, i had purchased a Transformer Prime on behalf of a superior at the office. One of the first things I ordered was the BodyGuardz armor kit. I chose the black version and it came in a few days later. It kind of sucked, since I wouldn’t get to keep the Prime, but I wanted to show my boss a great experience and the look of the CF design really stood out.
A few pictures after installation, which i think turned out GREAT!
Notice the cutouts for the speaker. The BodyGuardz people sure don’t miss any details.
The camera cutout is the perfect shape & size.
The kit doesn’t just cover the back of the device, it protects the sides along with the top and bottom. They provide pre-cut little strips for each aspect of the device to prevent the casual nicks and dings.
While on the dock, it really stands out from the ordinary tablet. At the same time offers some much needed protection. If you decide to peel it off after a while, there isn’t any sticky residue left over.
BodyGuardz also includes one of their ScreenGuardz Screen Protectors in the armor kit. So you spend the $20 on the armor and get a free screen protector too. Most places charge more for just the screen protection..
