Hey everyone, im kinda new here so correct me if im doing something wrong.

Now onto the subject, i have my moto x for 2 months now and had a case but i dont really like it, but i want some protection so i looked for other options and came to dbrand. Its quite expensive for a skin (10$ + 5$ for shipping) but maybe its worth it. So maybe one of you guys has experience with dbrand and want to share it. Also i want a screen protector so if anyone has suggestions, they are welcome :)

Thanks a lot for helping me!

I have many many dbrand skins and they have top botch customer service. Their skins are also the best fitting ones I have used. I've tried skinomi, slick wraps, and bodyguardz. They ship from Canada and drive across the border to mail the skins via USPS. So that's why IRS more expensive for shipping (usually on $3CAD which is cheaper than 3$USD obviously) there are many threads about their skins, but I recommend you look in the Nexus 6 section because the OP for dbrand is 600+ posts long with many pictures and customer experiences.

Yeah fpr scratches mostly, i never ever let a phone drop. Never did it before never gonna happen

it's perfect to protect against scratches. I had one on my nexus4 so that i didn't scratch up the glass back & have one on my moto x right now. there's a thread in here that I created that has a couple of pictures from us that have them.

not sure if im late on this and you decide yet or not, but i had a wood skin on my n4 that fit excellent, and a brushed aluminum and carbon fiber for my nexus 7 2013 version that fit well and covered the soft touch rubber dimpled back. i purchased one for my moto x 2014 on december 26th, it was my first bad experience with dbrand. it wasnt necessarily bad because of the product or anything, it fit excellent and looks great (i dont like cases either so a skin was more to give me somehing to hold besides the slipper back), but it took for ever to get here, i just recieved it today, January 10th, thats 15 days, i also paid 3 dollars for shipping and it arrived in a lick-and-stick white envelope with a $.48 stamp so not sure where the other 2.62 went, i saw someone mention they drive them across borders but idk about that. the product is great as i mentioned, but expect to wait to get it. i actually ordered a case for it (the light duty unicorn beetle), because i hadnt recieved the skin, and was worried about scuffing or dirtying the back panel (white on my phone), and it arrived before the skin despite being ordered 9 days after ordering the skin lol.

Thanks for sharing, i ordered mine a few days ago and they said shipping time is longer than usual, because of fewer orders. (I live in europe so shipping costs are 5$) i hope its worth it, i got the dark wood one

That's correct they do drive across the border to ship them. I've had orders take 30+ days but you have to remember that USPS is delivering it SK if it takes forever you can thank them. I do wish they offered faster shipping or at least tracking but I doubt they will.

I made a guide/comparison between all of the skins I've tried so far from dbrand and SlickWraps in the Nexus 6 section. My wife doesn't like skins of her Moto X but I did manage to get her the matte black camera one which she is OK with and it helps prevent scratches to the lens. Check out the pictures and guide I wrote on the skins if you want an idea of what to expect from each company. I've ordered many skins and I have more on the way and I can attest to each companies products and how they work. I've had issues with both companies but both did work to address them.

Here is the OP if you wanted to check it out:
