    Hello Everyone,
    I Purchased a replacement housing for my OnePlus One from ********** and it arrived today.
    First of all I would like to say that the Sandstone housing gets stained easily and sometimes difficult to clean. Then I put a new case on it and it permanently stained it with red paint. Now a lot of people would say it was my fault for purchasing it but I say it was the Case Manufacturers fault (Auxian). I have been trying to get in touch in them through the seller I bought it from but I haven't heard anything from them. DO NOT BUY AUXIAN CASES OR ANY CASE THAT LOOKS SIMILAR TO IT!

    Now to back to the Obsidian housing.
    Installation was extremely easy. Took me no more than 2 minutes to remove the Sandstone housing and fit the Obsidian one in. Instructions are included in the box (See pic)

    Two sim trays were included (Nano sim tray and Micro sim tray). Opening tool and Instructions manual. All did to open the back was use the Headphone jack as a level and gently pushed outwards and it clipped. Then I worked my way around. SIM Tray must be taken out first.

    It is a lot smoother compared to the Sandstone texture. Soft to touch. Although it might look like it has a similar texture to the Sandstone housing, It does not. Feels better in my opinion. It is less grippy though but I ain't worried about that since I have an Orzly case on it. I'd imagine it to feel similar to the Baby Skin White housing but with a Slight texture and different color.
    Extremely easy to clean too compared to the Sandstone Housing.
    The Housing did come with NFC and Buttons. All tested and working great.
    Please note that these images look different to what I can see in person. Both housings appear similar but they aren't.
    Another thing I like about the Obsidian housing is that it's got very little writing at the bottom. Makes it look cleaner.
    Here are some more pictures:

    I stuck my previous dbrand Mahogany skin back onto the damaged Sandstone Housing. ( http://goo.gl/jrX53w ) - Check this out for more Info on the Skin.

    I might have forgotten to add something. If I do remember I'll update the thread :)
    I am Very happy with the Housing and I will stick to it for a while. I won't be installing the Bamboo one because I've heard some people are having fitting issues.

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will try and answer them as soon as I can ( Faster than OnePlus Customer service Guaranteed ;) )

    Thanks

    Why did you change it if you have a Mahogany skin?

    I feared that if I bumped the phone somewhere I could easily bend the Chrome ring around the phone because my friend who owns a OnePlus already has. The case does not fit very well with the Skin on so I took it off.
