Nah, didn't even notice it was there. It sure looked like it had self healing capabilities if you could call it that coz the material looked kinda cushy plastic? Malleable... Looked kinda makunat in a good way. But do make sure you have the staff installing it align it perfectly the first time using the top lid and face time cam as your pattern. I had to have him re.adjust it a 2nd time which honestly was kind of a hassle coz i only noticed the slight misalignment after he was already done installing it. Best to get it on one of these November Wednesdays if you can spare the traffic time and in case you have a BDO Visa. Minimum of a 3k cumulative/single purchase to avail of the promo. Sayang din. I just couldn't wait till Wednesday and i didn't wanna run the risk of it along with the UAG MB 12" case i got running out of stock as is usually the case (pun intended) as of late.
