    Yay, I finally received my Bamboo styleswap cover. So I guess this will be a semi-review on it including my thoughts on the accessory.

    So I tried taking a selfie with the cover itself without shaking too damn much so excuse me if the image is not that good. The app I used taking the photo was Google Camera.

    Okay so back to the "review". When I received my package I felt both the packaging and the cover itself was high quality stuff. I'm not too concered about the price. I really think it was worth it. The back feels a bit woodish I guess, I wouldn't say it feels like pure wood, atleast not according to me, but it's fine. The feeling I get is not-so-plastic-but-still-plastic-wood-type-of-feeling if that makes any sense. I feel really unique using this styleswap and basically I just really like it!

    The only bad thing I noticed using this cover (apart from the phone is actually a bit thicker) is now with the bamboo styleswap the phone feels much more slippery and I feel like I could drop it any second using it. That's exactly the opposite from what the Sandstone back made me feel. I had a solid grip of it and wasn't afraid of dropping it. But after more using of the phone my hands got a bit warm and wet and that's when I noticed that I actually have a good grip when my hands are warm. That saying if you live in a cold country like Russia I wouldn't suggest buying this accessory. But so far so good, I love it and I totally think it is price worth.

    I quickly downloaded a wallpaper as well to fit this light wood with it. (I think I'll make this wallpaper a bit lighter due to the wood is a bit dark compared to the back but it is fine for now.)

    Information about my home screen (I'm sorry that it's on Swedish, I normally use my phone with UK English as my default):
    • Wallpaper: Light wood wallpaper. Grab it here.
    • Icon package: Rondo
    • Launcher: Aviate
    • Widgets: Seconds Widget Clock (top widget), Chronus Dock (transperant, to make the weather widget at bottom), Chronus Weather (bottom widget)
    • EDIT: DPI: 400

    I think that's all for now, I will sure update this thread if I change my mind or if I experience something in the upcoming days using this styleswap. Ask Me Anything! :D

    EDIT2: If you appreciate this review, I am quite certain you will enjoy the next. I will be reviewing the OnePlus Silver Bullet earphones next! When I receive my JBL's I will review those as well.

    Love it. Your cover has a slightly darker shade to mine. :D
    How surprised were you when you felt it?
    Hint: softer than the screen ;)

    If you are asking if you are able to put on a cover then yes there is a whole thread of covers compatible. :D

    I think so they feel plastic. :eek:

    I just broke up with my girlfriend after a one year relationship. I'm 20 years old. However I don't see how it's relevant to the thread. LOL :cool::p

    I don't know sorry. What's time and what's a clock? lol :p

    It's the photo's fault. The oneplus logo itself is actually white. I was in fact really surprised. I hate surprises but I loved this one. :D

    I live in Sweden, shipped via royal mail. Check my signature to see the date I ordered it. I can't remember and I'm on my opo now so I can't see signatures. :)
