    All credit goes to @K.P. Smith. Without his videos I wouldn't have been able to do this. So, Thank you.



    I received my Baby Skin White style swap back cover today and it was a breeze to switch out from the Sandstone Black. I followed the @K.P. Smith videos and didn't break anything! I'm enjoying the white so far. It is a bit slippery because of there being no texture, but it still looks great either way.
    I also have the White SIM card tray that came in today as well. The back is soft to the touch. I did notice the my 1+ logo on the back is black and not white. I don't mind this because of the black camera and black side buttons. I think it adds a nice accent. My NFC is also working perfectly!

    *Sorry for some of the bad quality pictures. My significant other isn't here so I had to use my webcam instead of her phone.

    I did the same but had to buy a whole white phone in eBay, swap the covers, and resell the 16GB phone again on eBay. But I didn't find any white covers sold separately when I looked. Must have been some parting out a broken phone when you purchased?

    Over the past week or so (since I actually started looking) there a whole lot of them on there now. People in China are selling quite a few Back and White.

    Nice. Did it take you a while to get the NFC antenna out of the sandstone cover? Use a hairdryer to soften the glue, and slowly pick at it to remove?

    OP using KP's method. To remove the NFC antenna. The white didn't come with NFC, so he had to swap it from the black. If you watch KP's video, looks like kind of a pain to do.

    I actually just slowly peeled it up. Didn't need a hair dryer. I was very careful, but didn't take too long at all.

    Can you show the other side of the white please ?

    wanted to see the NFC comparison ...etc ;)

    I'm afraid I might ruin things :)

    Thanks

    I love that you can just swap the covers and not be stuck with the bulk of an extra case. Also seems like the backs are a little bit different in texture/colors then what other companies are doing.

    Nice. Was thinking about trying the white for a change. Holding out for bamboo though for now. Have one on special order. ;) (scalper - but taking a while to even ship out).

    Oh I didn't realize there was no NFC antenna on the white cover. Seems like inane design. Let me investigate.

    Wasn't difficult at all. Only took a minute or two, I was just very careful.

    I just successfully beamed a pic between my opo and N4 with no problem. I didn't do anything special when I swapped black and white covers and as I recall the covers were identical inside. So not sure what this extra step related to NFC antenna really means.
