    So I started out with a Dbrand Skin and decided to get a Mighty Skin. Both of my skins are Red and my Dbrand is carbon fiber. Anyone else using a skin. Post a picture of your skin on your phone. Here is a pic of mine. I rarely use a case and the skin helps with grip.

    I had used dbrand skin on the iPhone 6s when I had it for 3 weeks. Didn't really like the look and feel of it. didn't help with the grip at all.

    Looked very different from what the site showed. Using a thin Spigen case on the S8 now.

    I've been looking at the dragon skin. How do you like it? What kind of texture is that on it. Is it smooth to the touch? I like that. Here's a better picture of mine. I did have a dbrand red carbon fiber but found that Mighty Skin makes a good skin and I liked their shade of Red so I ordered this recently.

    I'm using a dbrand black skin on the back but I also have a case on it. I always put a skin on to protect it from scratches caused by stuff getting in between the case and the phone.

    Good idea. The back is definitely prone to get scratches.

    I got this one too with the rhinoshield bumper. It buckles a bit at the bottom, but not horribly.

    How's that rhino shield. I don't use a case and only have my back skin and screen protector on. I've thought about getting that rhino shield a time or two. Does it make the phone feel bulky? I like a slim sleek feeling phone which is why I don't use a case but I'm always worried that one day I'll drop it and damage my phone.

    No, it's a rougher texture than the dbrand carbon fiber (i have that, too). I grabbed it since it seemed to give the most grip. IMHO, it looked the best with the black device, as well.

    [Don't tell anyone, but one of the other Mod's has the dbrand dragon skin -- on the dove grey S8+ with the metallic sides. When we had them side-by-side, mine looked much better.]

    Lol. Now you have me interested in getting one. What colors do they come in? My S8 is the Acrtic Silver but you'd never know as I've had a skin on it since day one and the same for a front screen protector. I just changed the screen protector actually a couple days ago as I was in Walmart and saw one made by ONN. It's the best screen protector I've had yet for the S8. I didn't like the tempered glass ones and this one is a thick liquid type skin that comes with already curved edges and it fits perfectly. Covers the entire screen and sticks great. No lifting anywhere. It's only 9.99. Here is a pic of the what I got.

    You'd like having one. I just like the color Red so I have two skins. One that's on mine now is just a bright Red color and I also have a Red carbon fiber skin that I use from time to time. I might try one of those dragon skins they posted on here though after reading what they said about it having a good grip. Plus the skin will keep your phone looking brand new protecting it from scratches. I don't use a case so a skin was a must for me. The phone is too slippery without one on it. It gives your phone an entirely different look too. You should try one. I have a dbrand and the one I am using now is a Mighty Skin. I've used Mighty Skin in the past plus I happen to like the shade of Red color they make. In the past when I've used cases most all of mine are Red lol. I have a few blue ones too. I'm also thinking about ordering an orange dbrand skin too. I like the color pop though. They have a bunch of different styles and colors to choose from. Dbrand is the most popular but take a look at Mighty Skins. They have a ton to choose from too plus they are a little cheaper than dbrand. Dbrand seems a little thick to me where Mighty Skins are a bit thinner. It definitely gives it a different look and a much better grip.

    Slickwraps. Got sick of dbrand. Other than the dragon skin they have had the same skins for like 5 years. They need to make new skins more often.

    The dragon is that one colour only, at least the last time I checked the website.

    Screen protector? I've had Ghost Armor on mine for over 3 months. Wraps the edges nicely. No lift here either, despite about a 15 minute bath in the lake.

    Ouch! What happened to get it in the lake for that long? No damage? That's quite a while to be under water.

    I wish they made a Red dragon skin. I'd get one in a heartbeat.

    Took me a while to find it. Maybe an orange skin would have been better at that particular time...

    The rhinoshield bumper actually works great, especially with the skin. Make sure on amazon you get the "updated " version, as it fits much better than the older one. I have both, and they really improved button feel and ease of use and fit of phone in the bumper. It is quite expensive, but Erica Griffin on youtube has a serious drop test video, it's the real deal. Oh yeah, with the skin, put the bumper on from top to bottom, it will minimize any bunching of the skin at the bottom part of the phone. I think it's a great combination, I've used zero cases since I got these two together.

    I just purchased a Peel back cover and it's the thinnest cover ever and works perfect with a screen saver. Will not provide protection from a drop but perfect to keep scratches away.

    You talking about the ONN that you can find at Walmart? It's very thick much like a tempered glass and comes with already curved edges. It's actually the best screen protector I've found and used yet. I got mine about 3 or 4 days ago and I've had zero issues with it. It fits perfectly and has zero lifing. Here it is again.

    Here is my Red carbon fiber dbrand skin that I use from time to time when I want to get a different look and feel. The good thing with these skins is you can take them off and use them again.

    I ordered a skin for my note 5 and it only took 2 days to get here and it was delivered on a Saturday.
