Upset you didn't win a bamboo back? DON'T BE.

    I received my official OnePlus One Bamboo StyleSwap cover today, and I can't express how disappointed in it. Sure, the actual bamboo is nice and looks great, but...



    To preface, this isn't my first time replacing the back on my One. I bought both an official Silk White and Sandstone Black back cover from ebay (both are great). I've used both, and they have been perfect. I was able to get my hands on a Bamboo cover, and installed it about five minutes ago (following all of the poorly constructed instructions, by the way).

    The back is poorly designed in the fact that it creaks and makes noise every time you grab the phone with normal pressure. Again, I installed this just how they described... I've replaced my back three times... This wasn't my first rodeo. I took it off after ten minutes, because I cannot stand how cheap this makes the phone feel. I reinstalled my Sandstone cover which does not creak or make noise, even after removing and reinstalling. Congrats OnePlus, you got your $50.

    That's weird mine is not creaking at all but I do agree with the crappy instructions.
