iStyles5/Arrived fast and fit perfectly!D. Fetzer, United States, 18 September 2021
iStyles5/The material feels great and was easily applied. I think the design is lovey and I had no issues with air bubbles or anything else applying it. It was quick and well priced.K. McCullough, United States, 15 September 2021
The issue I have is that the skin does not cover the entirety of the device. The impetus for purchasing the skin was primarily to cover the feel of the decaying rubber that becomes tacky over time.
It was only after I applied it that I returned to the product image and noticed the nearly half inch gap around the edge of the back that has gone uncovered. Now I must choose between the tedium of finding another material to cover the gap or not using the product.
So make sure you check the details of the image since dimensions aren't listed anywhere on the product page.
Thank you for the review. We're happy to hear that you like the design and had a good experience shopping at iStyles.
The back Skin piece of this Elegy Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch Skin set does not indeed cover all the way to the edge at the back of the e-reader as shown on the product images.
The back of this e-reader is not flat as it tapers near the edges; if the Skin was extended further, it will bend well near the edge as the Skin can wrap around a single axis, but as the material cannot wrap around 2 axis at the same time, excess material will bulk up at the corners where the surface is rounded. It's like trying to wrap a ball with paper. This back Skin was thus designed to cover the flat surface on the back of the e-reader without going too near the edges so as to avoid any issues.
The back Skin is to be applied such that it's centred on the back of the e-reader, leaving an equal "gap" all around from all four edges.
Unlike cases that are bulky and heavy, Skins are perfect for e-readers such as these because they protect the surfaces covered from scratches and do not weigh down the device. If you need comprehensive protection while the device is in use, a case is the only option as that wraps all around the device, but such cases may negatively affect your reading experience. If you get a transparent or translucent case, the design of the Skin will be visible through it.
Alternatively, we'll recommend keeping the Skin as it is for styling and scratch protection, and when you need to transport the e-reader, place it in a padded bag or sleeve. A matching tablet sleeve is available with this Elegy design.

iStyles5/Great skins and Fast Shipping!A. Leon, United States, 2 September 2021
They were super easy to apply, and reposition and the colors look great!
My only nitpick is that little bubbles started to form after I put the skins on, but they aren't that noticeable and don't seem to be that big of an issue. I would definitely buy from here again!
Thank you for the review We're happy to hear that you had a good experience shopping at iStyles and that you like the Skins.
If bubbles "form" after a while, it means that little pockets of air were trapped under the Skin during Skin application. This can be avoid during Skin application by pressing the Skin down from inside/centre out, but if air does get trapped, just massage these air pockets to the edge using your fingers so that the air can "escape" at the edge. The weaved adhesive of the Skin makes it easier to massage these out, but if the air is still stuck, gently peel the Skin to where these air pockets are, press them out, and paste the Skin back from inside/centre out.
iStyles5/Love my Skin! It is really beautiful...The Gadsden Flag never looked better... very smooth, nice and bright, gives my little Kindle a whole new look...D. Farmer, United States, 22 August 2021
iStyles5/The order was perfect!P. Altabef, United States, 17 August 2021
iStyles5/Just to tell you the skin applied even easier than they have in the past.J. Jennens, United States, 3 August 2021
I was hoping for one more whimsical, but this one looks great on. I only use the case when I'm on the go, so the colorful is nice to have at home.
iStyles5/VERY GOOD!A. Cameron, United States, 29 July 2021
I just finished installing most of these decals. Good fit, and manageable die cuts / sectioning.
(...and by a happy coincidence, we have 4 batteries for our Karma. How did you know?? 😉)
iStyles5/Just a note to say I received and install my decal and if works perfectly on my 3rd generation 11” iPad Pro. Thanks for a great product.R. Baczkiewicz, Canada, 29 July 2021
iStyles5/As advertised and great graphics. Vert easy to order and install. I would highly recommend this product.R. Baczkiewicz, Canada, 15 July 2021
iStyles5/Excellent vinyl skin! I got it for my Paperwhite (2015).M. Alimaganbetov, United States, 10 July 2021
1) Matte finish.
2) Very flexible and stretchable! Reapply even if you need to peel it off. Use hair dryer to squish excess length in between. Heat works charms!
3) Contours the curves perfectly.
4) Bubbles are easily managed. Make sure to WAIT a few hours until the skin applies more firmly - new bubbles with come up, just "massage" them down flat.
5) If punctured, holes let the air out (for embossed "Amazon" logo), and then the holes become invisible.
1) Flat surface (compared to "dbrand" carbon finish)
2) Out of box, smells really chemical. Make sure to let it go before putting into the case.
3) The back is not covered fully. I guess that's the skin not to peel off easily.
Looks and feels great!
Thank you for the review. We're happy to hear that you like the Carbon Fiber Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3rd Gen Skin.
These Skins are freshly made and yours was made just 4 days ago. There can be a slight smell if the Skin was too "fresh" (it got to you too quickly! :) ). The smell goes away fairly quickly after it leaves the envelope. There is a slight gap with the surface edge on the back Skin so that the corners and Skin edges stay on more securely.
iStyles5/Fair price, reasonably fast shipment, minimal directions. This was my first skin and figuring out how to separate the skin from the backing paper in the best sequence was challenging. A video specifically for the Surface Duo would have been nice.R. Bilancia, United States, 25 May 2021
iStyles5/All good with the order thanks, the skin was relatively easy to apply and gives a nice finish.J. Dagnall, United Kingdom, 25 May 2021
I wonder though if I should have been a bit more daring with my choice of design! Maybe next time.
iStyles5/Very good an quick delivery, excellent information and outstanding service! Thankz 👍J. Pieters, Netherlands, 21 May 2021
iStyles5/Schnelle Lieferung nach Deutschland 🇩🇪, alles super.T. Arning, Germany, 15 May 2021
Fast delivery to Germany 🇩🇪, everything was great.
iStyles5/Extremely fast shipping, first off. The skin was extremely easy to apply and high quality. Fits perfectly; I love how it looks!A. Cummings, United States, 1 May 2021
iStyles5/I love how they include the wallpaper that matches the skin. It’s a little difficult to get the skin on perfectly but it’s so pretty that it’s worth it.B. Herowai, United States, 10 April 2021
iStyles5/Great skin for Microsoft Surface DuoJ. Camins, United States, 30 March 2021
I bought a skin for my Microsoft Surface Duo and received it in a couple of days. The quality is very good and installation was easy. The price is right and it's nice that the skin comes with skins for the edge of the display screens as well as a wallpaper you can download to match the skin.
iStyles5/Solid purchaseA. Assaad, United States, 29 March 2021
I could have installed this skin blindfolded.... with both my arms tied behind my back....underwater. That’s how easy it was. Also looks great and shipping was quick.
iStyles5/I was pleasantly and gratefully and lucky to deal with the person that I emailed I was treated with respect and got a quick response so that I can show you better than I can tell you so I took pictures of the product once it was applied The quality and the material was as described but the person kept the word and if I had an issue .because I made an order and made a mistake in a order responded and they refunded me for the one with in hoursJ. Ocasio, United States, 11 March 2021
iStyles5/I would have given this product 5 STARS if the skin had an installation clear layer on top of the skin itself to assist with lining up the skin to the device (like what is found with other brands). This would have made the installation easier and more predictable; the top clear layer would adhere to the front of the skin while the bottom of the skin (sticky part) would be exposed until contact is made to the surface of the device. The clear layer would not be peeled away until the skin is lined up properly with the device, including the holes for the front facing camera and lower button. The quality of the skin is good; not as stiff as other brands, but it feels like a one time use, like it's soft enough to peel away but it does stretch a little and might not be reusable (like other brands).L. Nepomuceno, United States, 8 March 2021
Thank you for the review. We're happy to hear that you like the quality of the iPad 3rd/4th Gen Skin.
Thank you for the suggestion. We've looked as such "installation clear layers" before but they do not make Skin installation easier - the user holds the clear layer to adjust the alignment but this has no added benefit compared to holding the Skin directly and aligning. Such installation layers are only useful for screen protectors so as to avoid touching the underside (causes visible fingerprints) but when applying a Skin, it's more precise to hold the Skin directly.
Our Skins come with a special weaved adhesive that allows for easy application and goo-free removal. Just position and stick. If you want to adjust the alignment, simply peel the piece off gently and realign. When you're happy with the alignment, press down hard all around and the adhesive will bond. If applied properly on a clean surface, the Skin usually outlasts the lifespan of the device.
The cast vinyl used for the Skin is thin, can conform better to the shape of the device surface, and less prone to heat and shrinkage over time, unlike the stiffer, thicker and cheaper calendar vinyl used elsewhere, but it can indeed stretch if pulled hard. Some customers claim to be able to reuse their Skins but we advice removing the Skin only when you do not want it anymore.
Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] if you have any further queries or need assistance.
iStyles5/Great product. Fit my device perfectly and it’s so pretty!S. Smith, United States, 26 February 2021
iStyles5/I finally received the item and couldn't believe they're actually two covers for the phone!they fit perfectly around the corners!D. Johnson, United States, 20 February 2021
Good material! Thank's!
Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that your package arrived quickly (ordered on 12 Feb, shipped on 12 Feb and delivered on 18 Feb - this was pretty quick for a First-class mail shipment!).
We're happy that you like Solid State White Microsoft Surface Duo Skin!
iStyles5/The skin is beautiful. Ordering from Canada was made easy, and it arrived on time.C. Thompson, Canada, 10 February 2021
iStyles5/Top quality!S. Bachmann, United States, 3 February 2021
I was hoping I would have the opportunity to rate this top quality phone wrap. I bought two and I can't decide which to use lol. The matching phone screen is a huge bonus! It fit perfectly and has optimum adhesion. I will definitely buy from you again :)
iStyles5/Pro:L. Lim, Singapore, 28 January 2021
- good quality
- matching wallpaper
- no way to get rid of the strong vinyl sticker smell [even after more than 1 yr's usage]
- shld have a transfer layer for tablet's front border sticker for easier & better application
Thank you for the review and for shopping at iStyles again. We're happy to hear that you like the Skins and came back for a repeat purchase.
There can indeed be a slight smell from the Skin when it's first removed from the envelope because these are freshly made at the production facility and packed straight after production. The smell, if any, goes away fairly quickly (within hours). It's not possible that the Skin is still off-gassing a year after. I guess that vinyl may have a smell up close if you are sensitive to it, but I just sniffed a couple of old Skins and could not detect anything.
Thank you for the suggestion regarding the tablet front Skin but we've not found any tool that will make the application of the front tablet frame Skin easier than it currently is. Applying the Skin is just a matter of aligning and pasting. Start by aligning the important elements such as the the camera/sensor holes and buttons first, then align the rest. Our Skins come with a special adhesive that allows for repositioning during the application process. If you are not happy with the alignment, just gently peel off and realign. Press down all around on the Skin only after you're happy with the alignment.
Thank you once again for the review and the new purchase!
iStyles5/Quite happy with this order. Website is easy to use, order tracking information clear, and order didn't take too long to arrive, even though it was ordered just prior to the festive holiday season, and is an international order. The Matte skins are high quality, easy to use and now my products have some personality to it. Thanks iStylesJ. Lee, New Zealand, 13 January 2021
iStyles5/I’d like to tell you that I am extremely happy with this product. I was afraid it would be difficult to put on my Surface Duo, but as soon as I took it out of the packaging, it took me less than 5 minutes to install it. It also seems to be of high quality, and it’s so beautiful, I can’t take my eyes off of it! If I ever need anything else “skinned,” I will definitely be looking your way.B. Clark , United States, 1 January 2021
iStyles5/I don’t even know what I both, what’s is I was expecting kind of case and what I saw I can’t even explain waste of my money I don’t recommend. Adolfo, United States, 17 December 2020
We are sorry to hear that the product was not what you thought it was. The Solid State White Microsoft Surface Duo Skin that you purchased is an adhesive based Skin as described on the product page. This is not a "case". Cases are available for other devices in the Cases category but not for the Surface Duo.
Skins are good for low profile protection without adding any bulk and they look like they're part of the device. If you really need a "case" without losing the styling of the Skin, you can use the Skin underneath a translucent silicone case or clear crystal case.
Skins are especially good for devices such as tablets because these devices are hand held for long periods of time (eg, when reading) and the bulk/weight of cases will make the use of the device more tiring. Skins do not add any bulk and barely any weight. We recommend using a Skin for general scratch protection and styling, and when you want to transport the device, put it in a padded sleeve or bag.
iStyles5/The Skin fits perfectly and looks great. Delivery to Germany within 8 days.P. Schumacher, Germany, 4 December 2020
iStyles5/Excellent service. No issues and reasonable delivery timeS. Hogan, Australia, 21 November 2020
iStyles5/Great product!! Feels smooth and easy to apply . Shipped quickly to Australia ❤B. Hibble, Australia, 30 October 2020
iStyles5/My skins are awesome; the design is sick and the high gloss is *chef’s kiss*. I also got a sleeve which is also good but smelled a little weird at first.C. Kaye, Canada, 22 October 2020
iStyles5/I purchased both a decal and a neoprene sleeve for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13.5" and have minimal issues with both. The decal for the lid and the wrist rest both fit really well, I'm super happy about it, I love the quality. The bottom decal was the same size as the lid decal, but the edges of the laptop are tapered in, meaning there's no way it fits. I had to cut around the holes for the feet to apply it, and the decal hangs off on both the right and left sides, just enough to be annoying. I got the composition notebook decal, and my personal feedback would be to remove the white box with "composition" from the bottom decal to look more like an actual composition notebook. The neoprene case looks really nice, but is made for a laptop that's taller with the lid closed than this one. The case is not snug, there's a lot of extra space, which wasn't really what I was looking for, but it turns out there's no real options for a customizable neoprene sleeve that fits snug for this laptop that I can find right now online, so this will do.A. Padres, United States, 26 September 2020

iStyles5/Had low expectations of the product, but quite surprised the skin is not some flimsy sticker skin & feels substantial. The application of the skin was easy to follow and thankfully designed with the correct holes for the various mics and cameras of my surface pro 7. I would definitely use this product again for other devices. Also the skin shipped really quick & arrived 3 business days after ordering.R. Rivera , United States, 21 April 2020
