Giveaway: Win One of Three dbrand Nexus 4 Skins (Update: Winners Picked)

N4 Skinz dbrand

I have been playing around with the idea of throwing on different types of skins to the Nexus 4 recently. It is the perfect device for adding such an accessory since it has a completely flat surface on the back, but I was somewhat hesitant about covering up that beautiful glimmering backside.

Well, I found some skins from dbrand that will actually make the Nexus 4 look even more bad ass, so we went ahead and got a few extra so we can give a few away.

The skins are well made, ranging in textures, colors, and feel. The one I was most drawn towards was the black carbon fiber and it really lived up to my expectations in terms of shine and feel. We also had them send along a white faux-leather skin, as well as a grey aluminum one. The leather skins come in a large range of colors from blue and purple, to neon green and hot pink. But enough of talking them up, let’s get to giving. 


Update:  We have our three winners and have emailed them. Sorry for the late notice!

Prize(s):  Three people will win one of three dbrand Nexus 4 skins. One (1) carbon fiber, one (1) aluminum, or one (1) white leather skin.

Instructions on how to enter:

1. Tell us why you love your Nexus 4 in the comments below and specify which skin you want the most (carbon, white leather, or aluminum).


We will pick our three winners today at 4PM PST randomly from the comments section.

  • Michael K

    My nexus 4 is amazing. I love the fact that just about every part of this phone is superior to other phones, sometimes I find myself showing it off a little.
    Carbon skin.

  • zurginator

    I love my Nexus because Paranoid Android. I would like the silver because it looks boss with the bumper. Also I was planning on buying 5 different skins from them, would be nice to test the Nexus cut first.

  • Miguel Quintana Valdez

    Aliminium seems nice, carbon’s not better than the current skin.

  • kan dao

    Love my nexus 4 because of the great new features it has and others don’t. Its basically a pure google experience and will always have the lastest updates! And finally, the nexus 4 offers the latest hardware which gives me the fastest performance:)

  • Adrian Cheung

    love the build quality of nexus 4… i want carbon skin! =)

  • Jpm7714

    I love it because it’s stock and so easy to customize

  • xboxkid

    Other than the fact that it is a Nexus, I love it because it is so very sleek and sexy. I want the carbon because it is too difficult to be a wing man with my shiny, sexy phone. I need to tone down the flashy and get stealthy.

  • Skye Villanueva

    I love it because its a nexus! And always having the newest and fasting updated are awesome! Plus the glass back is beautiful! Any skin would be amazing!

  • Until Nexus 4 I’d been using a non-smartphone, so naturally I love everything about it. I like the carbon fiber one best, but would be happy with any of them.

  • I love the Nexus 4 because it lets me experience Android the way it was meant to be experienced. I would love the carbon skin!

  • Adam Boeglin

    I love my nexus 4. It’s powerful, has the pure Google experience, and on the T-Mobile prepaid plan I only pay $30 a month for my service. A Carbon Fiber DBrand skin would be all I need to complete the experience.

  • kakuckaku

    fast,recent update, easy root.
    aluminum looks nice 🙂

  • My favorite thing about the Nexus 4 must be the wifi radio in it. It’s beyond incredible–better than my laptop’s, and allows me to stay on wifi all the time. My only gripe is that it’s such a dust magnet, but I suppose a skin on the back would fix that. My preference would be the carbon skin because the silver on black just looks so nice.

  • Trevor

    I love my Nexus because it’s a Nexus! So easy to root/ROM, and everything (usually) works butterishly.

  • Sean Pham

    I love my nexus 4 because it can do whatever I need it to do and more! When I need it, its there and ready to be use without any hiccups! I would like a white skin because its classy… 🙂

  • easy to unlock, easy to root, easy to restore, beautiful screen, wireless charging, and its fast, yeah its fast. In order of preference white leather, carbon, aluminum.

  • Justin Gable

    I love how well built the phone is, it’s solid. I’d like a carbon skin.

  • I love my Nexus 4 cause its way faster than my old Bionic. Thank god I don’t have that phone anymore. I would like the white leather skin.

  • joseph pastor

    I love my nexus 4 because it shuts any iphone user up when they’re talking about their cool phone. once you see PA3 PIE on a device, you’ll realize why on screen navigation is the future.

    carbon fiber xD

  • Mark Javier

    I always been a nexus user since nexus 1 and there is nothing like getting updates first than everyone else. Love my N4 its fast and its just the s@#*!

  • mplacido9

  • hjkd1995

    I love my nexus 4 because it got me away from using my pantech hotshot piece of crap. And aluminum.

  • Dylan Patel

    My Nexus 4 is my third Android phone, I love it because it is stock, and not Sense. That is the most important thing. Besides that, I love the size and shape of it. It is 4.7″, so just barely my maximum for one-handed use, and the bezel isn’t too big. I hope to win the carbon or aluminum skin, but I would be happy to get any one of them.

  • will

    recent updates and white leather

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it can do a lot more than really need.

  • Sarah mosqueda

    I love my Nexus 4! Have you seen it?! Of course you have! It’s so sexy and it’d be even more sexier with one of those dbrand skins! I recently bought a case with a clear back to show off that sexy back, but that aluminum skin would look even better!! It looks awesome! It’d like the aluminum skin, please!

  • I love my N4 because it’s power, simplicity and of course AOSP 🙂 I would love to win the carbon skin

  • John Burke

    I love the feel of glass, but I know I roll the dice everyday when I leave the house naked

  • I love my Nexus because it got me off Verizon and is saving me $100/month! That and it’s the fastest, best performing phone I’ve ever had by far.

    And if I were able to choose, that Aluminum one looks sweet!

  • Bob G

    Love my Nexus 4 because it is the first stock Android phone I have own, and everything has made me a believer in living and loving stock.

  • ProfessAndObey

    I love the Nexus 4 since it is the most innovative phone on the market, and at one of the best prices. Any of the colors would be sweet.

  • Alexander Anteneh

    I love mine for battery life compared to the last nexus. carbon

  • Keith Southern

    My N4 has a great screen, and the latest android os! I the carbon fiber skin looks like the best, but I’m sure they are all very nice.

  • gk08

    An unlocked up to date phone that I can use wherever I want… what is not to like? Carbon Fiber please.

  • reyalP

    I love my Nexus 4 because it is my first unlocked phone. It has enabled me to free myself of carrier contracts and go to a prepaid monthly plan. It has given me freedom that i have never felt before with a phone. It is also helping me to save $60 a month by leaving Verizon. Thank you, Google!

    • reyalP

      Forgot to mention Carbon skin.

  • George L

    Why do I love my Nexus 4? Simple, it’s my first unlocked and contract free smartphone. Which is perfection in and of itself. No strings attached in owning it, in addition to which it’s a Nexus! I mean, as Gob Bluth would say, “Come on!” Updates straight from Google and the ultimate phone in ease of hackability/tinkering? Check and double check!

    While other phones may soon be released with “better” specs, my Nexus 4 will remain updated more quickly and more frequently than any of those. And I get the pure unaltered Google Android experience, which in and of itself makes it leaps and bounds better (in my opinion) than anything else currently on the market.

    All those things are just some of the reasons why I love my Nexus 4. If it’s my choice then I’d totally like that Carbon skin. If I couldn’t have that then, and only then, I’d go with the aluminum one.

  • I love my Nexus 4 because I get quick updates and a phone that isn’t tied to a carrier. The aluminum skin is for me!

  • John Bullough

    love that stock android!!! aluminum skin baby!

  • Kevin Morales

    I love my nexus 4 because of all the custom roms available for it. I also like the fact that it is unlocked and straight from Google.

    The aluminum looks nice IMO.

  • baconslayer09

    Where do I start?
    1. It was only $400, unlocked and contract-free
    2. It’s pentaband so I can use it on any GSM network in the world. Including T-Mobile’s $30 5 GB prepaid plan.
    3. It almost never lags and gets me awesome network speeds on HSPA+.
    4. It gets updates whenever Google releases them and the dev community is awesome.
    5. The build and form factor are awesome. The curvature of the glass feels like sex when you swipe from one side of the screen to the other.
    6. It can actually last an entire 24 hours, if not more. No previous Nexus phone can say that.
    7. dBrand skin + official bumper makes this phone look like a BOSS.

    I have the black carbon fiber skin already, would really love a white carbon fiber one.

  • I love my nexus 4 because it takes anything i throw at it. Most of all saved me more money by leaving verizon for it.

  • Dr. Rock Strongo

    I love the Nexus 4 because I am not the most hardcore user but I feel like it gives me the power to feel like one, with a couple guides I can get right into rooting and superuser and all that noise because its so simple, and pretty. The aluminum would definitely sexify it so much so the ladies will forget about me a second time!

  • I love my nexus because: 1. Unlocked! 2. Best screen I have ever had. 3. Camera and its functionality is awesome.4. Nice, chic design. 5. Fast!

    Skin I want the most: carbon 😀

  • Who wants another 4skin…. eww

  • Key Terms

    Brilliant screen, blazing fast processor, and perfect form factor. Oh, and the Jellybean experience is incredible. Yeah, I won’t be letting this thing go for awhile. Aluminum please!
