After years of using Gelaskins as my go-to iOS decals, I decided to give the dbrand iPhone skins a try. All of the dbrand skins are applied in the same way, but theyâ€™ve got a wide variety of colours and textures. You can get faux wood, faux carbon fibre, and plain colours as well.
I first ordered one in Matte White because I liked the idea of a super-clean iPhone 6S Plus with a matted grip, but when the skin arrived, it really wasnâ€™t what I had expected. The matte white wasnâ€™t very reflective, but the texture wasnâ€™t grippy at all. For whatever reason, it seems like a matte white just doesnâ€™t have the same texture as a matte black. I had first learned this when ordering a matte white case years ago, but remembered my lesson when the first dbrand skin arrived.
Luckily, dbrandâ€™s customer support was very accommodating and offered to send me a matte black skin, free of charge. A few days later, I received in the mail, pulled out a hair dryer, and started to install the skin.
