    "I almost ever posted pics" What does that mean? You do post pics?

    Man, if you're so annoyed by my english skills, then just leave this thread. I did say that I apologize for my bad english. I meant that almost every time I received a new SS, I posted a pic of it on a french thread.

    @Toulouse here is something to add a mix to the pot. My opo is dated 4th September. My partner got one 2 weeks later. It is from a later batch dated mid September. Their sandstone is a lot rougher than mine. Bear in mind for the 2 weeks I was using my phone it had a cover on it.

    I received mine on 14th Jan and my back cover is much smoother than I expected of a sandcover back. Prolly u r right. Its more like an obsidian cover

    Haha, I like this statement!....anti grammar-nazi shield...
    I've only had mine for about 3 weeks and although it feels sandpaper(ish), I'm sure it's not as rough as the original sandstone. Wish I had the CyanogenMod logo...:(

    The CM logo isn't a big deal at all, you should look on Ebay, there are some new third batch back cover with CM logo, NFC etc ;) I'm pretty sure that since yours actual One has the 4th batch back, it's as rougher as mine (who feels like sandpaper too). You shouldn't worry about that ;)

    Well. I'm gonna start thinking that it's just "random". You got 1/2 chance to get the real sandstone x)

    I think it is random and Dependant on the batch. It is quite handy to have two opos close at hand to compare and contrast.

    Made some search again, the international Obsidian back cover isn't supposed to exist lol, i think it's brand new, indeed, but that maybe failed the sandstone spray stage? :rolleyes:

    I have the second batch which is exactly the same as the first batch of OPO that shipped. The only modifications are to the CE logo on the back and from what I can tell the texture was rough with a lighter charcoal color compared to the ones shipped today. The third batch didn't really change all that much, but people suggest that OnePlus changed the texture that goes in to making the sandstone back. But over time the sandstone back tends to get smoother and loses some of that rough finish.
