    It's fixed! Lol I can stop looking at it now. Used a threading pin to lift the corner and afterwards blow dried it again

    Impressive. And to confirm, it isn't slippery, right?

    I just finished installing mine. Love it so far, installation was pretty easy, aligning was the hardest part. There is a damn pimple on top 'eft corner which annoys the crap out of me. Can't decide whether to try to peel off that corner to try to take that dust out. Afraid it might screw it up.

    I installed this back screen on my Note 5 so I can see the beautiful phone I paid so much for.
    Amazon.com: IQ Shield LiQuidSkin - Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Screen Protector + Full Body (Front & Back) with Lifetime Replacement Warranty - High Definition (HD) Ultra Clear Smart Film - Premium Protective Screen Guard - Extremely Smooth / Self-Heali
    Installation is easy and the wet application allows for easy placement correction. The pieces are very very well dimensioned to fit literally like a skin so install with good lighting and position carefully. Once the adhesive sets up you can't tell there is a skin over the glass. It is a bit more tactile than the Gorilla glass but not a whole lot.

    For those who've already put the Dbrand skin on your Note 5, what do you do about the screen protector on the front?

    I've ordered my Dbrand Black Carbon Fiber skin but still waiting for it to arrive (I live in Aus so might take a while). A friend at work has the S6 Edge and he somehow managed to get a crack on the glass on the back of his phone, this has made me somewhat nervous about only using a skin on my N5.

    Definitely less slippery than glass, but it is a stretch to say it is not slippery at all.

    My main purpose aside from looks was to prevent fingerprints, scratches, and overall keeping it clean

    installed the black carbon Dbrand skin on my Note 5 this weekend. My findings:

    • Dimensions not 100% accurate. Even when I paid a lot of attention aligning the bottom of the skin, the top would slightly cover the metal surround. So now my bottom is perfectly aligned, but the top half just covers the metal. This leaves a noticeable exposed edge on the skin which is rough to the touch
    • Although it is less slippery than the glass back, it is not that much of an improvement
    • If the rough edge gets on my nerves over the next week, it's coming off...

    Pictures would be great. Mine is near perfect. Took several tries before aligned correctly but I'm in love with mine.

    You also have to remember dbrand uses 3M material is a little strechy which can also cause issues. I'm happy with the fit of mine. Looks like it came from the facatory on mine.

    Yeah, that's probably what happened. When I had the bottom part aligned properly, there was a slight bend in the middle part which meant I had to pull the top part to even it out. Maybe that caused a slight stretch.

    I got the white carbon fiber, just to add some extra grip. got it and it was way off. I'm thinking its for the s6+. I emailed them and they are sending a new one. so hopefully its right. I hate having to wait

    Mine arrived yesterday, but it was for my Note 4. In addition to the Note 4 and Note 5, DBrand has many more skins/colors for other phones. The one I chose didn't address the slippery issue, but I was able to put my clear case over it. I would suggest keeping their YouTube video demo on, I had to rewind many times to get the instructions correctly.

    My white carbon fiber fits great. I didn't even take my time installing it. Just slapped it on and went about my day.

    I didn't bother with the front. I have a tempered glass screen protector and it's usually in a Pelican Voyager case at work then a clear case on my days off. I got it mainly to cover up the AT&T "tramp stamp"

    I don't know about theirs but I just got and installed the "black leather" dBrand for just the back of the phone and it's.... not grippy but not exactly slippery either. Honestly it feels naked without the UAG case I have for it. I'm thinking of peeling off the skin and going back to the case.

    I got my black carbon fibre skin. I'm really happy with the quality and it went on perfectly first try so I'll be ordering another one for my gf's phone. I ordered the front parts but havent put them on since I have a tempered glass protector so it won't fit, that's probably the only disappointing part for me

    Here's a pic of it

    I bought the black carbon fiber one for my N5. Mine fits perfectly and it only took me one try to get it all lined up. I thought it was going to a bit more difficult to install so I was pleasantly surprised.

    It does add texture to the slick/slippery back of the naked N5. For one-handed use though, I will still use a rubber skin (Diztronic) so that I have more to hold onto.

    So far I've gotten quite a few positive comments on the look of my N5 with the Dbrand skin.

    I just got mine. It is great. Perfect texture.

    The installation is okay, it took me some time just to align it properly.

    I just got the white carbon fiber and it looks and feels good. I need to realign it just a little to the right though. Has anyone had it on and then peeled it back off a little yet? I don't want to try and move it mess it up.

    I had the dark wood grain dbrand skin on my note 4 and when applying the front it completely took off my screen protector, which wasn't a huge deal, but about three months into using the skin, the side pieces had completely come off, the front piece had started to shift all the time, so I just took it off, and finally I just took off the back piece because I saw no point in keeping it on. So for my note 5 I just decided, although it looks great, I'll opt out this time around.

    Did you use a hair dryer when applying the skin? I found that it helps immensely! My skins have never peeled off, thankfully.
