Nexus 5 dbrand titanium skin review

By | June 9, 2015

As most of you know I don’t use a case on my Nexus 5. So instead of getting a case, the guys over at MobileZap have hooked me up with the titanium dbrand skin for me Nexus 5! If you have a Nexus 5 and are looking for some kind of case for it, MobileZap has plenty of different Nexus 5 Cases are available and I’m sure you would be able to find one that will fit your needs.

So without any further ado, I will get onto the review of the titanium dbrand skin.

What’s included?

  • Back skin + camera lens cover
  • Front skin
  • Frame skin
  • 2 x Screen protectors

The skin itself is made from 3M vinyl, and is precision cut for a perfect fit. It aligns perfectly with the “nexus” cut out on the back of the phone. It was strange, the vinyl “feels” like anodised aluminium, but isn’t cold. It has a similar texture which I really like about it. For only $24.99 I will definitely be buying one of these again for my next device instead of a case.

The vinly itself seems thicker than what it actually is. The vinyl is only 1mm thick and doesn’t affect NFC charging what-so-ever, and being 3M vinyl they’re 100% guaranteed to not leave any sticky residue.

The skin and screen protector come in a nice plastic sleeve, and has a link printed with a how to video for installation, which is a nice touch. I’ve had the skin on my Nexus 5 for over a week now, and the corners, sides, front hasn’t peeled at all.

It is stuck on solid and is such a perfect cut out it looks like it was made like that from the factory.
