    How sweet would it be if you could wrap any smartphone, not just Motorolas and the OnePlus X, in elegant bamboo? What about tablets, laptops, even smartwatches and gaming consoles? Well, now you can once again, as acclaimed maker of the “most precision-fitted skins on the planet” dbrand reboots its wildly successful and previously short-lived series of bamboo covers. The sleek, premium-looking skins aren’t manufactured of actual wood, but no one will be able to tell the difference, and they’re going to fit your device like a glove. Whether you’re thinking of customizing a Galaxy ...

    Sometimes the smartphone you want comes just the way you want it: beyond having the electronics and software you're after, the phone's also got the perfect look, with material and color options aligning just to your tastes. But even if you can't buy the phone you love with the look you crave you've still got options, and both cases and aftermarket skins give users a chance to customize their phones in ways the manufacturer never did. We've been fans of what dbrand's been doing with skins for a while now, and today we learn of a limited-time new option going up for sale, as dbrand offers ...

    As we were just talking about a few hours back, the Nexus 6P appears to be having some problems with its cases: pick the wrong one, and there's a real risk that you're not going to be able to successfully capture screenshots via the power-plus-volume-down button combo. Sure, you could carefully shop for a case that manages not to interfere with those buttons, but there's more than one way to customize your Nexus 6P, and some of them aren't going to interfere with button access at all. This week, skin-maker dbrand reveals a new collection of skins custom-cut for the Nexus 6P, all ready to ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 is one hell of a smartphone, as our glowing review reflected. But for as many things as it does right, the phablet isn't without its flaws, and we remarked upon one of these small issues early on in that review: "In the hand, this is far and away the most premium-feeling Galaxy Note ever... Unfortunately, you’ll likely need to invest in a case or a skin to keep it looking that way: the glass is absolutely impossible to keep free of fingerprints" It's an issue we've seen time and time again with even some of the otherwise-best-designed handsets out there, and while ...

    The new color-screened Pebble Time has landed, and we've been spending the last few weeks covering the smartwatch's arrival. The original Pebble (and Pebble Steel) already offered users a lot of customization options with the help of alternate watchfaces, and the debut of the color display with this generation only opens the door for more variety. Beyond that, you can always swap out the band for another 22mm option. But if even that's not enough for you, and you crave further control over the way your smartwatch looks, dbrand may have just what you need, as it reveals its new modular ...

    You've probably heard of dbrand before. They're one of the leading skin makers on the market, pairing incredible precision with endlessly customizable designs. If you've ever bought a skin from the Toronto-based company before, you already know about the Moto Maker-like ordering process; you can pick, mix, and match different colors and textures, and even  choose whether or not your skin will have cutouts for logos on devices like the Nexus 6. Today, dbrand has added another material to its selection in the form of bamboo. Okay, so it's not real bamboo. But it is authentic 3M bamboo ...

    Admittedly, I'm a case junkie – not because I love cases, but rather because I'd rather keep the appearance of my phone pristine for as long as possible. When cases are the only valid option, I like to switch it up, because I get bored with cases quickly. I've already bought three for the iPhone 6 Plus. Ergo, I'm an inadvertent case junkie. But cases aren't the only form of protection for your precious smartphone. If you have one of the select phones dbrand chooses to support, you have a host of other options for protecting your phone. dbrand is the maker of exquisite wraps for your ...

    How do you preserve the scratch-free finish of the glass covering your smartphone's display? Well – besides just being really careful, that is. A bulky case? A plastic stick-on screen protector? The latter may be a very popular option, but doesn't that feel like a bit of a downgrade, moving from precision-engineered glass to plastic? Today the team at dbrand is launching a new line of mobile accessories that seek to offer unparalleled screen protection while also maintaining that high-quality look you only get from glass, introducing its line of dbrand glass Gorilla Glass screen ...

    Sometimes it's not the promise of saving money, nor the allure of a shiny device that drives you from the warm arms of your current wireless carrier - sometimes it's just a matter of standing up for what you believe in. That's the case with today's podcast guest, friend of the show and longtime Verizon Wireless customer Chris Larson, who's leaving Big Red for the much smaller T-Mobile USA due to Verizon's stance on net neutrality. On this episode of the Weekly, we'll talk to Chris and find out just what he's prepared to sacrifice, and why. Before that, though, there's an avalanche of news ...

    The Nexus 5 we're giving away isn't just any old smartphone. First of all, it's the larger 32GB model, so those of you with an aversion to cloud storage and an affinity for byte-hungry media can rest easy. More importantly, it comes bearing a cosmetic upgrade: a vinyl skin from the fine folks at dbrand that replicates a white carbon fiber/brushed titanium finish. And if that's not your speed, there are four more skins bundled with the award package, waiting to be claimed by our grand-prize winner. But how well do these skins work, anyway? What's the process of applying them like, and how ...

    A question for you, fellow mobile geeks: do you ever wander over to google.com/nexus5 to behold the splendor of the 2013 Android flagship, soaking in the wonders of its "pure Google" software build and Snapdragon 800 chipset before seeing the $399 price tag and, after nervously eyeing your comically oversized pile of credit card bills, slinking away in disappointed defeat? Don't answer that yet. Here's another question. Have you ever found yourself tempted by the customizability of the Moto X, but been unwilling to make the sacrifice in specs, screen size, and camera performance to choose ...

    There was a time when a phone was just a phone. Nowadays we want to customize them. We want to personalize them. We want them in all kinds of different colors. After Motorola started hinting that its Moto X would be available in a wood finish, dbrand got to work. Pocketnow's Taylor Martin and I both have a few products from dbrand, Inc. which we've shown off on Pocketnow Live and talked about on Pocketnow Weekly. On August 19th, 2013, dbrand announced on its Facebook page that mahogany was coming to the Nexus 4. I whipped out my wallet and threw my money at the product. Yesterday it ...
