About Our Matte Screen Film

Matte film provides low shine with a unique look that nearly eliminates smudges and screen glare. The trade off, however, is a reduction of the sharpness of the screen. See our blog post on Matte vs. Glossy Screen Protectors for more details.

Details

Protect your Nexus 5 without hiding it in a case. Our clear protective Skins are the answer you've been looking for.

Screen Film:

  • Glossy - The original crystal clear scratch protection for your screen.
  • Matte - Dramatically cuts screen glare and smudges.
    • *Some screen clarity is sacrificed with matte screen film.

Body Film:

  • Glossy - Provides great invisible protection and pairs well with shiny devices.
  • Matte - A stealthy look that goes perfectly with matte finish devices and can also amazingly change the look of a polished device.
Case Optimized Screen Option: Reduced in size by 1.0 mm around the outside edge from our standard size, edge to edge screen Skin.  The reduced size avoids intereference with cases that overlap the front glass. 
 
Cases reported compatible with the standard size screen Skin:
  • OEM Google Official Case
  • Caseology Slim Fit Flexible Hybrid TPU Case
Cases reported to require the Case Optimized screen Skin:
  • Diztronic Flexible TPU Case
  • Spigen Neo Hybrid
If your case is not listed above, we suggest starting with the standard size screen Skin.  If it is too big and your case contacts the screen Skin causing bubbling at the edges please contact us and let us know what case you have and we will gladly exchange your Skin for the case optimized version and add your case to the list for future customers.  If you prefer to play it safe or you know your case overlapps the glass you can just choose the case optimized version.

This was my first attempt at installing this type of skin. Had a thicker one that came with my case but took away from the nice display on my nexus 5. This one fits like a glove, no install problems, and does not take away from the display. Absolutely love it and will recommend to all! Great product. Thank you! (Posted on 7/15/15)

I've been using these skins for years; on iPhone, iPad and now my Nexus 5. Love the screen protection and ease of cleaning. Have to replace the ones on my phone every year or so as they eventually start to peel on the edges after in-and-out of pockets so many times a day. The iPad one has lasted 3 years and no sign of peeling. I will never hesitate to buy one of these for my next phone or tablet. (Posted on 5/12/15)
Nexus 5 white: Impressive 4G in a body wrapReview by DrG
Quality
Price

Having just set up and wrapped a new Nexus 5 smartphone, I have to say that I am impressed.

As usual with my smartphones, I wrapped this one with a full body kit from Best Skins Ever. Easily done. This will protect the front screen and the beautiful white back. This 32Gb model has speed and a heavier duty battery than the Nexus 4 16Gb I just sold on eBay, which I also thought was a great 3G phone. I've even stayed with Vodafone through their trials and tribulations. Their new 4G shared plans are very good indeed.

My wife was amazed at how quickly the Bluetooth pairing using CarHome Ultra on the Nexus 5 took place. I was impressed with how quickly Google updated Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) to 5.0 and then 5.0.1 (Lollipop) and the many new features. Some 81% of smartphones run Android (sorry Apple) and this version is their best ever.

If anyone is afraid to wrap their smartphone, or has had disasters doing so, there is a little secret to doing it successfully: Close the windows and doors in your bathroom, then steam up the room. Let the steam clear naturally, and it will take any dirt in the air to the ground. Make up a soap solution (300mL water: 1.5mL washing up liquid) and put it in an el cheapo spray bottle from Woolworths. Use this to spray your fingers and the sticky side of the plastic wrap. Such wraps are self-healing and are used to protect helicopter blades. Works every time. I never use those horrible plastic 'Hello Kitty' or silicon pieces that people use on their phones. Ugh!

All up, I am very happy. (Posted on 3/7/15)

Good price, fast shipping.

Bit tricky to apply (I had some liquid from previous wet skins that I applied on other products), and it did the job really well.
Got the cut screen protector (case optimized), and with enough care it applied perfectly, was dry in a couple of hours, no air bubbles / smudges / imperfections.

Using it with a Nillkin flip case, and the case does not touch the protector.
Looks like it's going to last a long time.
Very pleased. (Posted on 2/11/15)

Fabulous screen protectionReview by Jeff

The screen protector for the Nexus 5 is perfect, 5/5 like pretty much all of the BSE screen protectors.

I ordered the whole body kit, but after using the N5 for about a week, I decided against installing the back/side protectors - it's grippy enough. Unlike a Galaxy S3 or S4, where the back is incredibly slippery, the Nexus 5 has a nice grippy back.

I recommend getting a glossy screen protector for the N5 and skipping the rest! (Posted on 11/2/14)

It's perfect. I've tried so many skins before and i was always like "humm ok.. sucks a little but i need it so...."
But with these skin i'm so happy. Fits perfectly, if you don't know it's there you can completely think isn't really there.
It's crystal clear so I don't even notice the difference when loking at the screen, no distortion, no blurring no difference in colors. I don't know any other skin on th market that have the same performance.
And it's super easy to apply thanks to the wet system that leaves no bubbles at all!
I love these skins, I will never buy another one.

I just applied the full body bestskinsever on my N5, and I was amazed with how easy it was to apply. Although it has to be said, that its not perfect. I had issues making the edges stick on the back of my N5. My phone was clean, my fingers too and I dipped the skin in water mixed with dish washing soap. So I did as instructed - but still not perfect:(

The other thing I have to mention is, that the N5 in original piece, is really smooth all round, But with the skin makes it edgy around the corners. It would have been so much more better if the back and side skins were as "one" and not separate eliminating the edginess with the skins. But ill manage until it falls off:)

Top customer service, thats a full 5 stars:) (Posted on 6/7/14)

I;ve been using BSE since i don't even remember... and i love it.. I got the MATTE for my Nexus 5 and it looks awesome..

but this is probably the most painful install i've had with BSE... the cut is just ever so SLIGHTLY larger then the back..
that leaves like less then a mm going over the edge on all 4 sides.. it will not STAY DOWN.. (Posted on 6/3/14)
case optimized = perfect fitReview by timmberg

I am using a Spigen Neo Hybrid case for my Nexus 5. I previously used the "regular, glossy" bestskinsever screen protector and found that the screen did not quite fit perfectly with my Spigen Case - the top right corner would always lift and form a ghastly bubble that would attract dust and lint.

The case optimized bestskinsever screen protector is absolutely flawless and a perfect fit for this case. Careful application of the screen protector will result with perfect alignment of the screen protector with the case. I have had no issues with screen lifting at ALL since I've applied the skin protector. The screen protector has been in place for at least 2 months now and absolutely zero lifting and zero bubbles have formed. There is approximately a 1.5-2mm gap between the edge of the screen protector and the edge of my phone case, leaving minimal screen exposed. By far, this is the best fitting and most reliable screen protector I have ever used!

BestSkinsEver is fantastic in every way! I have used their skins for a long while now on a Galaxy Nexus, multiple Nexus 4s, and a Nexus 5 and I have never had an issue with them. They are easily applied, work with the cases I enjoy (Ringke Fusion) and look fantastic... not to mention they do the job they're intended for!

Would never even consider buying anything else, to be honest. (Posted on 5/6/14)
Just couldn´t get it on perfectReview by Giovani
Value

I´m a long time bestskinsever client, and I´ve always been a huge fan. I actually bought my Nexus 5 skin before I bought the phone itself, so I could apply it as soon as it was out of the box. Turns out this time I had two disappointments:

1. I bought the full body protection, but once I held the phone in my hand I realized I didn´t really want to apply it over the rubberized back and sides of the phone. I could have just bought the front protection. BUT I did use one small piece of the back skin: the circle that protects the camera lens. It would be really nice if that were sold separately.

2. I have never before had any trouble applying the front skin on any of the phones i´ve had... until now! I don´t know if the skin changed somehow or if it was just bad luck, but even though I tried it twice (with two different front skins), I just could not get it debris free, nor could I get the edges to stick perfectly on either try. Right now I have my "second attempt" skin on, and there are 2 or 3 tiny little spots on the skin that are "bubbly" due to some tiny spec of dust that got on there during the application that´s just driving my OCD insane. Again, that might just be my fault, but it´s never happened to me before with the front skin and it was just frustrating.

Anyway, I´d still remcomend it to anyone! The price has gone up some in the last couple of years, but it´s still pretty competitive. I just don´t have the nerve to walk around with my brand new Nexus 5 without at least giving it a fighting chance against shattering on a drop, and this skin gives me that confidence.

Matte screen protector for Nexus 5Review by Andrew Kim

Simply, the matte version of the screen protector for the Nexus 5 is great. Great value, but I recommend purchasing two if this your first time applying a wet-application skin.

I have no problems with it once properly applied. If you have any issues or problems, be sure to contact bestskinsever.com's support. They have always been very generous and shipped a replacement when faced with any aesthetic or functional issues regarding the skin or application. (Posted on 1/5/14)

Beware this product does not work with all cases! (ie spigen) If the case touches/rubs the product it will lift it.

Great Product, But ExpensiveReview by Roni

Value

Overall, this is a great quality product - easy, smooth application and great feel. The matte finish diminishes the sharpness of the screen a little bit, but it's worth having no fingertip marks.

The only reservation I have is the price, which is a bit on the high end. I would probably not have purchased this if it were for their Black Friday Sale.
Also, for this price I would expect to see a small packet with the application solution ( = baby soap + water, or just baby soap), maybe even in wipe form, for those of us who don't have non-enriched soaps at home. (Posted on 12/21/13)

I was skeptical at first. Now that I have it installed (and gave it time to cure to the phone) the matte full body skin is amazing. No smudging, no finger prints, great feel, and perfect fit and finish. Just have patience when installing.

The phone's screen will seem a bit grainy afterwards but that is just the nature of using a matte screen protector. Would buy again. (Posted on 12/18/13)

I have used BSE for years and this is the first time with the matte protector.

I have to say it is pretty darn amazing. The application is as usual but the protector has an awesome feel. It is silky smooth but not to slippery. It actually makes typing and other gesturemor enjoyable.

If you like matte screen it will make it look and feel the same as a matte LCD monitor.I love the anti glare and overall less stress on my eyes for extended use. (Posted on 12/13/13)

I have been getting best skins ever skins for years. I have tried competitors from time to time but come back to BSE. The matte finish looks fantastic and my wife and mother both want a matte finish for their phones. I personally feel like there is too much of a trade-off for the detail in the display and will order the regular skins in the future for myself.

As I have installed a lot of BSE skins, the installation was easy. The site and packaging has all been updated since my last order (along with a price increase). I miss the small business feel and price but understand the need to get bigger and update the packaging and price. The price is still a great deal compared to competitors. (Posted on 12/12/13)

Skins arrived in timely fashion and packaged properly.

The rear skins worked as anticipated. However would personally avoid the front screen protectors going forward as there are better options available.

Will return again when we purchase our next phone/tablet. Highly recommend the rear skins! (Posted on 12/10/13)

I'm on my 4th phone using a skin from BestSkinsEver. These products really do live up to their name. I've tried Skinomi products, and they simply don't compare. I haven't tried the Matte version, but the Glossy has been perfect every time.

Customer service is wonderful too! (Posted on 12/2/13)
The matte skin is nice but can use improvementReview by Skinner

I recently purchased two skins, one matte & one glossy. Since I hadn't ever tried a matte skin before I put that one on first. After it was installed and allowed to cure for a day I turned on the phone and was a little disappointed at how muddy it made the screen look. I know that it states that the matte skin is a little grainier than the glossy one but it really takes away from the beauty of the high res screen.

Other than that it works as intended, fingerprints and glare are not a problem. Unfortunately I had to switch back to the glossy skin. If you guys could find a way to improve the clarity it would be perfect.

Matte protector is fantasticReview by evilspoons

Aside from the slight graniness matte protectors always give you, this is perfect. It fits on the front of my Nexus 5 even with a Spigen Slim Armor case installed (the case does not lift the edges of the screen protector).

Cutout is close to perfect - the front camera, proximity detector, and speaker ear hole are all uncovered. The hole around the camera is slightly high (the camera is not centered exactly) but this could just be due to installing the protector while the case was on the phone (maybe the case isn't perfectly straight.)

The matte finish does an excellent job of hiding fingerprints. (Posted on 11/28/13)
