With the users who posted their dbrand skins, the glass panel separation seems to be visible.
Based on the photos, installation video, and other YouTubers sporting the dbrand skin, I couldn't see the distinction.

Dont buy the Dbrand skin forsure I got mine and it's no way going to work unless you use a case. LOL waste of $15 bucks save your money and just get some lunch instead. If you guys need some pics on how the dbrand fit I show you, but I took it off after it looked way to crappy go bare or a case IMO. :rolleyes:

God right when I ****ing caved and bought dbrand skins.

Yea I know. I removed my slickwraps hemp skin and put the dbrand skin on and it just doesn't seem like it fits as well as the slickwraps around the top corners. I have tried to get rid of the ripples at the corners and it seems like they just won't go away. I will be ordering a natural skin from slickwraps the moment they are up.

I know right? The corners will not work at all they will stick out and look like crap. lol Sad the pics look good on the site but that's not real life.

Anyone else have similar issues with the DBrand skins? I have one in my hand, but haven't installed yet.

I have stopped paying attention to forum posts on XDA, especially about skins when they mention one company over another. Some online behaviour of brands has been suspect.

I've owned both skins for previous phones and both were good. Personally I found the fit and finish of the dbrand skins to be more exact.

The full skin version does look more challenging to install, I haven't tried yet.

I order both dbrand and slick wraps for my xl. I found that the slick wraps one was more exact than the dbrand one. Corners are super smooth and easier to adhere. Also slick wraps has a 45% off deal for today only!!

Did anyone here order a dbrand around 10/16 like I did and their order still says processing? I ordered from dbrand on 10/16 for my Pixel XL and haven't had any updates whatsoever. I emailed them twice in the last week with my order number and they have yet to return an email. I'm starting to get frustrated. $20 for nothing so far is kind of ridiculous. It's been over 3 weeks without so much as an email. Hmmm.....

    Which one did you get? Can you post a pic?

    I got flat black, for protection more than flash.

    I also got a DBrand but in there typical fashion it will be another two weeks before I see it.

    Just got home and posting the pics of the slickwraps skin. It is the hemp skin and its ok. The installation was very easy and fits perfectly. Had to use a heatgun to get the edges to stick which is normal for all skins. It really doesn't feel like hemp fabric but it is kinda grippy. I do have dbrand skins on order but they have not shipped out yet. I do like the natural look of this skin. It did come with a full front skin, a top and bottom skin, a few G logo stickers made out of the same hemp like material and a finger print skin. I did not use the finger print skin because then you can't unlock the phone with it. I do not like cases but used a case on this phone because of the back glass.

    Here's a leather one from Slickwraps. The cutouts are quite precise and the wrap covers the front chamfered edges. Pictures were taken with an S7 Edge because Pixels are not yet able to take pictures of itself.
