When the question comes about flaunting your high-end smartphone, you always intend to do the best justice so that it catches the most attention. Applying the perfect looking skin on the phone is one of such attempts that you might want to make to give a stylish look to your phone. However, such desires take the back seat when you find that ordering the best quality skin of an overseas brand would take much longer time than expected to reach your door.
Do not worry. There are a few companies in India you can rely on to get the most desirable skin. Overseas brand such as dbrand still remains an option as they ship to Indian customers. Let us check them out.
#1 Capes India
Capes India has been producing and delivering the finest quality skins from their online store since 2016 that can be used on smartphones, smartphone accessories, digital cameras, and headphones. The skins are available for most of the top and recently launched models from all the renowned brands.
Just like dbrand, Capes India uses 3M vinyl materials for their skins that are used to laminate cars to provide high-end protection of the paint. The most qualitative aspect of the 3M material is that it does not leave any residue when the skin is removed from the phone after using it for a long time. Further, the skin is completely weatherproof, and it doesn’t make any issue while putting the phone on wireless charging.
Capes India provides a variety of textures for skins. The options such as Camo, Panther, Carbon Fibre, and Stone looks awesome. Their recently launched texture Storm looks very classy. The back style skins are available at the cost of ₹499. Apart from the skins for the rear of your phone, you also get the option of buying the skins for your charger tops at ₹149, and the logo and camera cut-out for ₹39 each.
You do not need to be an expert for applying the skin on your phone. Just follow the procedure given on the package or follow the Capes India website for a video tutorial on the application. The skins fit very well on the phone with in-line precision.
There are various shipping options available. The standard pre-paid shipping is free of cost, and it takes time as per the delivery postal code. Express pre-paid shipping takes 1 to 4 business days and costs an additional ₹40. Cash on delivery under Standard (3 to 7 business days) and Express options (1 to 4 business days) cost ₹80 and ₹100, respectively.
dbrand is an international brand based in Toronto, Canada. The name of the company is based on the idea of “debranding” a phone by covering its original layer. Apart from producing skins for smartphones, tablets, and laptops, the company also supplies phone cases and screen protectors.
As far as the smartphone products are concerned, DBrand mainly concentrates on iPhones, OnePlus, Google Pixel, and Samsung. The other brands it covers include Huawei and Razer gaming phone.
DBrand uses 100% authentic 3M vinyl material for skins that give non-sticky removal. The company maintains the highest standard of precision for the skins by measuring and re-measuring them several times at their workshop. DBrand provides a variety of texture options for the buyers that not only guarantee looks but also grip and anti-fingerprint protection.
Being a renowned international brand and manufacturer of high-quality products, DBrand skins cost a bomb compared to Indian brands such as Capes India or GadgetShieldz. Their rear skins generally cost around $13 (around ₹900), camera skins cost in the range of $1-$2 (₹70 to ₹140), and charger skins cost around $4 (around ₹300).
Shipping is available completely free for a minimum purchase value of $25. If you do not need that much to buy, you can pay $5 as the shipping charge. The tracked shipping is available (via FedEx and Aramex), and it takes about 2 to 7 business days. However, in real cases, we have received some reports where shipping time took much more than estimated.
GadgetShieldz is another Indian company that is known to produce skins for any of the recently launched smartphone models. Apart from producing skins for nearly all the smartphone brands as well as some tablets, headphones, earphones, gaming consoles, and laptops, the company produces screen and body protectors.
GadgetShieldz skins ensure high precision, and they use 3M materials for durability, residue-free removal, anti-scratch, and anti-fingerprint protection. The company provides a lot of texture options for the buyers that include some Special Edition textures such as Joker and Spider, apart from the standard ones. For OnePlus models, it has started offering OnePlus Concept One skins.
The price range of GadgetShieldz skins is the same as Capes India for rear skins. For camera and logo, it charges ₹49 each. However, it doesn’t provide any skins for the chargers.
GadgetShieldz provides free shipping on orders worth over ₹398. The company’s courier partners include FedEx, Delhivery, Bluedart as well as Indian Speed Post. Packages sent through courier take around 2 to 5 business days. Packages sent through Speed Post and to remote areas might take a few more days than usual.
All the brands undoubtedly produce high-quality skins. Therefore, it is a bit difficult to choose between them. However, apart from the quality of skins, if we consider other factors such as precision, ease of application, fast shipping, and reasonable pricing, we prefer to choose Capes India. Capes India provides a lot of high-quality textures with several pattern options and that too for the smartphone and all its accessories at the lowest price.
