Over the last few days, we've seen reports that dbrand's new Damascus skin causes reduced cellular signal performance. The company has confirmed to us that certain wraparound Precision Fit versions of the new skin are affected due to a one-part-per-thousand metallic additive used to create the "holographic" reflective effect. Extensive testing to better understand the issue is ongoing, and the company promises to find an appropriate resolution for its customers.

Unless you’ve been stuck under a rock for the last two months (not that you've had any choice in the matter), there’s no way you missed out on the newest flagships from the company that Never Settles. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro may be #bendgate proof, but their all-glass bodies are just as breakable as any other overpriced gadget you don’t need (but are buying anyways). Lucky for you, dbrand’s OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro skins and cases are here to protect you from your butterfingers.
We've all had to deal with slippery phones before, and it's terrible. The fear of dropping your brand new gadget is a constant dark cloud that oftentimes takes away some of the joy one generally feels when they get a new device. No one wants that.
According to many reviews—both professional and personal—that's one of the biggest issues with the newest OnePlus handset, the X. While elegantly designed and aesthetically very pleasing, it's also difficult to keep in the hand. To make matters worse, it's also a fingerprint magnet. Those two things combined can make for a pretty bad experience when it comes to holding the phone.
If you're not into how your daily carry is looking these days, there's a good chance you'll find something to spruce it up from dbrand. Whether you want to add some color, murder it out, throw a touch of nature into the mix, or spice things up with the aesthetic of metal, there's basically something for everyone.
For those of you who like metal and want to make your phone a little more steampunk, the crew over at dbrand just unveiled a new skin: copper. While there's no question that this could potentially look "cheap" if not well-made, it's pretty clear exactly how killer these skins look after seeing the images.
A little while ago, I went hands-on with some dbrand skins. I say that if you're looking for a way to spice up your phone without going for a big bulky case, these are hands-down the way to go. They look great, are easy enough to apply, and come off easily should the need ever arise.
This contest is now over.

A couple of weeks ago when dbrand offered up all its skins for 25% off, I mentioned how boring most Android phones look these days (save for a few, like the Moto X since it's customizable). As a result, we decided that going hands-on with some dbrand stuff might be pretty fun, and what better phone than the oversized-and-aesthetically-boring Nexus 6 to be the guinea pig? I threw a variety of different combos on this beasty, which includes some super sleek options and also a couple of the worst combos I could possible think of (because why not?).
Regardless of color, one thing always stayed consistent: these skins are quality.
