dbrand seriously hooked me up with some sweet skins for my Nexus 5X and 6P. Many of you tech enthusiasts are similar to the writers here at AndroidGuys, in that you love your devices and want to make sure they look good too. Looks are becoming more important as we grow more attached to our devices.
A great way to prevent scratches, cover up existing scratches and to completely customize the look of your smartphone is to use a skin from dbrand. Yesterday I wrote about a gorgeous carbon fiber skin that I put on my Nexus 5X that looks awesome. dbrand sent me a carbon fiber skin for my Nexus 6P as well, but I didn’t want to give you guys the same look. Instead I went with the brushed copper skin with a cutout for the X in Nexus.

With the Nexus 5X skin dbrand I was most impressed with the high-quality materials. Those high-quality materials are sourced from 3M, and dbrand guarantees its products meet the highest standards. dbrand also make precision a primary feature, and I can say the skins I have used are so perfectly cut, that they must have been cut with space age lasers. The cutout for the microphone and fingerprint reader on the back of the Nexus 6P are so perfect that it looks like my phone was made from copper straight from the factory. The proof is in the images below.

Installation is so easy even I could do it without making a mistake. And that really speaks volumes because I am far from a perfectionist. I typically rush through projects like this, and dbrand was ready for my shaky hands. After installing the Nexus 5X skin, the Nexus 6P installation took me all of five minutes.

The look and feel of my Nexus 6P has dramatically changed for the better, all for less than $12. dbrand’s skins are unique, great looking, reasonably priced and easy to install. It makes my wonder why manufacturers of smartphones just don’t offer skins direct since customers do love choice. Many of us really are tired of the same old gold, silver, white and black colors that our smartphones come in.
As you can see from the images above, the skins on both the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P are so perfectly cut that they look like they came in actual carbon fiber and copper from the assembly lines. I was even stopped by three people today, while I was out, asking what phone I was using because they had never seen a copper phone before. I love the skins from dbrand as they do protect my all metal Nexus 6P from scratches, and gives it a nicer feel too.
And one last thing, and I really do mean this, if I can install these skins there is no doubt in my mind you can too. My eyes are not quite perfect anymore and my hands are shaky. dbrand offers a huge range of skins so check out its website to see if they have a skin for your device. They even have skins for laptops, smartwatches, tablets and game consoles.
dbrand is really the boss of all vinyl skins.
“dbrand seriously hooked me up with some sweet skins for my Nexus 5X and 6P”….. Hooked up means FREE to me. Wish I could be as excited as you but I actually paid for mine & still haven’t rec’d them yet!
When did u order?
Ordered red carbon fiber on 12/1/15 for my Note 5.
Ah sorry. Was going to send you the extra one I had if you had a 6P. I hope you enjoy your skin when you get it.
I got the leather for my 6p, but that copper looks so good. I’ve never used a skin before. Hope I have as good of luck as you did
I’ll take the skin for the 6p if you don’t mind. I picked up my Nexus 6p today
Which phone do you have? 6P or 5X? I have an extra carbon fiber skin for the 6P.
I have the Note 5 & iPhone 6S Plus but only purchased the skin for the Note on 12/1/15.
Dbrand has a huge backlog of orders. They haven’t sent orders made a month ago. Check their Facebook page.
The article sold me. I’m not sure I agree with your description of “top left, bottom left” etc. I would use those in relation to a vertical phone.
P.S If you want to sell your extra 6P skin, I’ll buy it!
If you live in the US email me with your address at [email protected]. I will send it for free. It’s carbon fiber with a nexus name cutout. I also have the colors for the X in the middle too.
Derrick Miyao does dbrand ship? their products?
Have you mailed the extra 6P skin? I’ll take it if you haven’t sent it off yet :p Great review, couldn’t find much info on the skin before and it’s the one I wanted
Really great review. Well done. I was on the fence about getting a skin over keeping my Spigen case on my 6p and I think now I’ll get a skin. That copper was a solid choice too, looks great.
The phone looks much better with the full Nexus logo instead of just the X IMO.
