    So before returning my refurbished silver KEYone to the eBay seller (upgraded to K1 BE), he requested that I remove the skin before sending so I took some photos before peeling it off.

    The skinomi skins also come with the parts for underneath the keyboard, as well as the sides and bottom. However, due to BBMo choosing to make the frame rounded instead of flat, those skin parts were almost impossible to get to stick correctly (also I have no hairdryer).

    The chrome BB logo doesn't come with the skin, I bought it on ebay separately as the back felt too empty.

    This skin doesn't really add any grip to the phone unfortunately, so it's only cosmetic.

    Thoughts?

    Unlike the cheap "silvery" of the SE K1, this decal is actually chrome, as in it actually matches the keyboard frets. Got it on ebay.

    Got it, thanks! I have wanted the skin to cover the front chin and back for a bit, but I didn't want to give up the bb logo. Looks great!

    The front top will stick easily no problem, as the surface is flat. However the bottom one you might want to cut the top corners so they don't get annoying. As for the back panel, the sides may not stick immediately but just put a case and it should do the job after a few hours, as the case will put an even pressure throughout the back panel forcing it to stick nicely.

    You can forget about the sides and bottom if you don't have a hairdryer for applying heat.

    I for one like it. The front looks clean, the back just looks a tad bit gaudy with that repeating plaid look. Maybe if it was a little duller and blended in (similar to the colors of the black KEYone you're upgrading to), it would have looked really nice.
    I like the logo on the back as well. It's a thoughtful touch.

    If anything, the front doesn't look clean imo but that's because skinomi didn't put the effort in to make a piece that goes right around the selfie cam and prox sensor, as well as also underneath the speaker grill in order to hide as much silver as possible. It's kind of understandable as they must not have thought the phone would sell like a Galaxy would.

    I see. Well to each his own. I still find it a bit attractive.
