    I’ve gone through a bunch of Max cases. From Apple leather and silicone to Spigen and even Totallee. Been looking at the new Matrix D-brand and wondering if that’s all I need. Looks amazing and keeps phone as slim as possible. Thoughts?

    I am stuck with the  black leather case since iPhone 5. Always reliable and no need for change for me

    I’d like to go the route of a skin, like dBrand. Albeit, I’d like to buy it locally and have it installed locally, too...

    I agree. Don’t think there is anywhere that does that?

    I’ve always loved the feel of the Apple leather case. It works for me... but I usually get a backup Spigen for the car since the desk mount leaves ugly marks on the leather lol

    I love the dbrand skin but I’m probably going to wait until they ship all the preorders, if I don’t get dbrand I usually get a peel type of case

    I always have a problem installing a skin on my phone. And I end up using my device caseless.

    Yeah installing the D-brand is a problem for sure. I have the Totallee case, clear one. It’s not bad

    My dbrand pre-orders shipped yesterday. Can't wait to get it. I'm already getting tired of all the fingerprints on the back.

    Just ordered the Matrix myself. Are these things a pain to install?

    I personally do not get along with wrapping my phone into a piece of thin 3M vinyl. For me there is no drop protection at all. But this is only my personal opinion.

    I used one on my X, Not bad at all. Very forgiving, you do it in sections and if you mess up the first section you can peel it off and start over with no issues. Take a look at the install video. I don't use the version that covers the frame so not sure how hard that is but just the back is pretty easy.

    That whole, "grab your hairdryer...", just doesn't sit well with me.
    Albeit, watching people install tint and things like that, they all seem to use some type of heating gun.

    It’s the frame that’s the most problematic. Wrapping that stuff and getting a smooth rounded results is nearly impossible.

    Was thinking the sides would be next to impossible to cover correctly.

    I’ve done that before. I put a skin on my 6sPlus - I think I just wanted to try doing it. It took a lot of time and adjusting but I got it on pretty well, including the sides. It stayed on about 2 weeks and then it just annoyed me so I peeled it off. I did learn from it that I prefer a slim case.

    The skins give you scratch protection though, and some grip.

    I mainly run naked so all I really use the skin is to prevent scratches and hide fingerprints. If I do use a case I just use a bumper case.

    It was between that and Matrix. I went Matrix this time. Black camo looks amazing though.
