    Team Matte, till the end. Less fingerprint magnet, looks much more better and premium compared to glossy.

    If we're moving away from the Matte vs. Glossy options, gimme Sandstone back!

    Glossy. I loved the Gold Platinum Samsung S6 which I owned before my current OP 7 Pro Almond. I also loved the OP8 Interstellar Glow. . .A decade ago I would say always black. And my specifically Obsidian-Monolithic Black.

    Recently, I had the opportunity to held a new Sandstone case again. I love the Nylon on the OnePlus 7 Pro, but Sandstone is Sandstone. Not only the grip, but also the profile of the phone. :cool:

    My Nokia 8 was a beast in some ways. A modern and bigger version of that build would not be that bad. Like a huge pocket heatsink that you also can make phone calls with 😜

    OK, hear me out: what about Titanium? :cool:

    Don’t know if you read the news, but there are rumors that Apple is going to use a “titanium alloy” for the iPhone 14 - or, at least, for the iPhone 14 Pro models.

    “Compared to stainless steel, titanium has a relatively high hardness that makes it more resistant to scratches, and its stiffness makes it durable enough to withstand bending. It's as strong as steel but 45% lighter, and twice as strong as aluminum while being only 60% heavier. It's also more resistant to corrosion compared to many other alloys”

    "Oil from fingerprints can be readily seen on bare titanium and titanium alloy surfaces, leaving unattractive marks on consumer devices. The hardness of titanium also makes it difficult to etch, which can make it less attractive" (MacRumors).

    Now, would you consider buying a phone with titanium if it was more durable (and apparently an even bigger fingerprint magnet), but more expensive?
