    Just showing off my latest purchase for my OPO. Imgur at work doesnt like to work very well so I uploaded them using the upload option here IMG_20150109_080350.jpg IMG_20150109_080410.jpg IMG_20150109_080021.jpg IMG_20150109_080104.jpg
    *Appologies for potato quality on one of the pictures. OPO camera took a shit for a second.*
    You will see that its is a legitamate StyleSwap. It does look like the Standstone Black but the Black for this is much darker and and the texture is, as my father would say, Smooove.

    For those of you wondering where is the CyanogenMod logo, This is for the chinese varient phones. They don't have those since the CyGen logo was only for the global varient. And yes, it has all the buttons and it includes NFC as well. This puppy was not cheap, but it wasnt stupid expensive either. In total I paid just over $46 CAD. Also I purchaed it on ebay. No, I will not link where and from whom. You will just have to search and find a reputable dealer you are willing to work with :p .

    I will update as to how this works on Canadian Carriers for my fellow Canucks who are interested in purchasing the other StyleSwaps.

    Edit: So I just swapped the cover on my phone. Piece of advice. Disable Cerberus before doing the switch :p Also I can confirm that the phone the same if not better with the new backplate on. Im actually getting slightly better signal.

    Agreed on that point. But in comaprison the black is slightly darker. The texture also is also very smooth. It's more of a texture difference IMO

    Not a fan of the Feel of the sandstone. I know this was a major selling feature but if I honestly needed better grip, i'd just buy a rugged case :)

    Ya I'm looking at getting the bamboo next. Just waiting for a decently priced one to show up or I get an invite for it first. Right now on ebay i think they are going anywhere from $87 CAD to $99 CAD w/ or w/out shipping.

    But it doesnt still have a gritty texture to that. I'm not a huge fan of that.

    I may need a unique style. This one just looks the same to the sandstone.

    I ordered this swap back last week and waiting on delivery. I saw the KP Smith youtube video and decided to order one because I did not like the feel of the sandstone. However got the bamboo back a couple of days back and may be awhile before I take it off because it is sooo nice!
