DBrand Skin Review

    Kyle.Griffiths, Jan 8, 2015 :
    So I recently bought the DBrand Skins for my OPO and my girlfriends Z3C :):D:pand boy is it a good product.
    I ordered the phone on 02/1/15, the skin got shipped on the 5/1/15 and it came to me (UK) On 8/1/15. Shipping was quick. The skins came in an envelope so they were posted through.

    This is what came

    I bought the Leather and my GF bought the White Carbon.
    The leather skin actual feels like leather, but you can also tell its 3M vinyl.
    With the Carbon Fibre you can really feel the 'Metal' pattern that runs through.

    We then had the daunting task of fitting the skin on :confused::oops::rolleyes:
    Following the instructions on the site it was damn easy to do. The good thing is, because its vinyl, if we made any errors all we had to do was remove and re-fit.
    We both did a great job getting them near perfect. After we git them on we just warmed up the edges with a hairdryer, to make sure the skin will stay on and not peel off.

    Here are some pics of the finished product

    We are both VERY happy with the skins and would recommend them to anyone.
    Any question just ask ;)

    Great personal review. I have been thinking of getting the DBrand Mahogany back.

    They both look good in the pics. Which one do you prefer the look and feel of, the leather or carbon?

    Thanx for the review !
    The skin looks great, but I'm just not sure if I'll be handy/thorough enough to apply it as neat on my phone. That keeps me from buying one for myself

    When applying, to correct a mistake we need to peel it off? wont the sandstone particles(or whatever) stick to the vinyl and screw it up?
    ok, did you have to peel it while applying? if yes, was there a residue of sandstone thing on the slin?

    Why wouldn't you just get an aftermarket wooden back instead of a skin...just asking.

    I am scared of removing the back cover. Thought I would test out a skin before I brave it and see if I do want to take the wooden back plunge.

    There are literally tons of tutorials on how to do that on the net, from this forum to youtube.
    But I do understand the hesitation. Honestly the only back that I would remove my current back for is if I was lucky enough to get a Bamboo back invite. I want it so bad I can taste it. Haha!

    Exactly! No invite for the bamboo so I thought I would get the skin and see if I like the asthetic look of it. Obviously the feel would be different, but it's just a tester. The skin is pretty inexpensive so I don't mind trying it out.

    Now if I got an invite for the bamboo, I would spend two days straight just watching reruns of the tutorials.
