Say goodbye to grime and fingerprints with dbrand’s Galaxy Note 5 skins
Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 5 is a beautiful blend of metal and glass, with smooth lines and a pristine finish… Well, it’s pristine when you first take it out of the box, because the minute you begin using the Note 5, you will notice the one big drawback of that eye-catching mirror finish: it’s the ultimate fingerprint magnet.
If you bought a Note 5 (the Silver and Gold models, in particular), you have a few options to deal with the constant grime from the back. You can ignore it or just pretend it doesn’t bother you (hey, we don’t judge). You can carry around a cleaning cloth, or convert your sleeve into one. You can hide that beautiful phone into a case. Or, you can apply a custom skin from dbrand and forget you ever had to worry about fingerprints and grime.
dbrand is well-known for its selection of vinyl skins for electronic devices, from gaming consoles to smartwatches, including skins for Samsung’s top smartphones. The latest addition is a range of Galaxy Note 5 skins in 18 different styles, that you can mix and match using dbrand’s intuitive online interface.
Applying a skin to your Note 5 can really change its appearance. You can go for a plain matte finish or replicate the look of the Note 4 with a leather-textured skin. Or you can go flashy and pick a carbon fiber or metallic texture. All skins are precisely cut and you can mix textures to make sure your Note 5 stands out.
Using a skin is a great way to avoid smudges, but it has some practical benefits as well – skins protect against scratches and they help with grip. And when you want a change, it’s easy to take them off and start over.
dbrand skins for the Galaxy Note 5 are available for $10 for the back (including a matching camera skin) and $8 for the front (with or without capacitive keys cutouts). Pro tip: try adding a little color accent by picking up a standalone camera skin for just $1.
