Diztronic has always been producing cheap and good quality cases for phones and the OnePlus One is no exception. The Diztronic case provides all round protection with perfectly size cutouts for the various ports. The case helped cushioned the impact on 2 occasions when I accidentally dropped my phone. The only gripe I have about the Diztronic case is that the back is a little too smooth and it did not provide much grip on the phone. Other cases did not offer all round protection or was too bulky.
I chanced upon DBRAND which manufactures phone skins for people who wants a different look to the phone without using a case. Personally I want to use a case as it can prevent dents to the side of the phone if I dropped it. Fortunately, there was someone who tried applying the DBRAND skin on the Diztronic case and it seem to work out well. I knew I had to try it, so I went ahead to buy the skin.
After 12 days of waiting for the skin to be shipped from Canada to Singapore, it was finally here!
Application of the skin was very easy and they have step by step tutorials on how to paste the skin. The OnePlus One tutorial is here
As the camera cutout has a curved edge, it will not fully stick on the case. But there won’t be much excess protruding out.
The Diztronic case feels great with the DBRAND carbon fiber skin. It also provides the needed grip and unique look without sacrificing protection. Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome!
