    RIP StyleSwaps :(

    Better to end it then trying to redesign the whole phone - guess OnePlus Two will have a better chance for StyleSwaps?

    Thanks for clarifying the issue for us.

    Bye bye to the Kevlar I wanted :(

    I have said it and I will say it again: StyleSwap covers were a bad idea, and the whole design of them was a bad idea.
    Back covers and batteries should ALWAYS be easily removable & replaceable. Stop putting NFC antennas and other stuff in them. Should someone break, scratch, bang, destroy their back cover, it should be available to purchase at minimum cost. 3rd parties should be easily able to provide back cover of various materials and colors, even different sizes of them for possible extended batteries.

    Stay true to your product that is one hell of a device. Accessories should be always a second thought. If people want to buy a phone for customization and looks, they would buy a Moto X or Project ARA.

    Never settle! :)

    The phone is pretty big as it is, I don't want to make it any bulkier with an additional case

    I'm disappointed but no one should be pissed because something that honestly isn't that important isn't being released. I understand upset because honestly I really wanted them but that didn't really account for the original post

    Once I get my iphone, I'm selling my one to create a Moto X. Well done OP. You officially suck in my book.

    not OK.
    the swappable covers played an important role for many users in deciding to get this phone, moreover if we would have known this before, we could have taken this into account and handled our devices more carefully from the start, now that there will be no option to replace the back.

    but at least, good hopes for the TWO.

    You wanted a phone so you could swap its back casing? That seems like a dumb deciding factor to choose to buy a phone. The secound part, I totally agree an understand though.

    ok instead of you, you said "many users" still same idea. either way if thats why people choose to buy a new phone over another, because they can change the backing. I dont think thats a good reason..:confused:

    Ok, I realize everyone is bummed out about this, I am too. But in all honesty, its not like the back cover was an additional case or protection or anything, it was a replacement back. So if you want to change the visual look of your phone, why not get one of the many skins that they have on Amazon? When I first got my Nokia Lumia I got the CarbonArmor for the back of it... Added a nice bit of scratch protection and made the phone more visually interesting. I realize that for people like myself who were looking for wood that the skins aren't going to have that nice texture, but the look is there, and the price is a lot less expensive (at least the stuff on Amazon. GhostArmor is a bit pricey).

    Anyway, just a thought for those looking to change styles.

    In his post, the link posted shows how to get other covers. Sadly, only the sandstone will be available
