    Yea my comment was specifically about the metal phones on cases. I agree metals do dissipate heat better, but using a case traps it in anyways, causing then to retain the heat, which they are also better at! Perhaps some kind of liquid cooling could work like on PCs, don't know if it's possible yet( Samsung did something similar since the S6 I think).

    While I agree that metal does dissipate heat better, it works in reverse while putting a case one, doesn't it? They also absorb the heat better and retain it.

    The limiting factor should always be the case, regardless of the material the phone is made of. The case will be an insulator and its heat conductivity will be the determining factor on whether the phone heats up or not.

    If the case is a perfect insulator, the heat would become trapped until the phone melted. :D

    I don't care as long as it looks good and allows me to get Wireless Charging again. I often sit on the couch or at the desk for my PC and thus charging times don't really make a big difference in how I like my phones. I do however like the portability Wireless Charging gives me. Just leave it to charge and pick it up whenever I get something to drink, go have some toilet time or whatever and then sit back again with my phone on the charger. Nobody picks wireless charging for the speeds, they do it for the effortless and portability that it gives the user. And new tech seems to indicate that the new standards should be much faster too

    Metal / wood combination, wood is very nice.
    Ceramic is very beautiful and resistant, but it should be given some texture, it is extremely slippery

    Whatever material is used, ensure that it is gripy. If it is not and you are going to slap a case on it, it wont make any sense at the end.

    I prefer me(n)tal or 'engineering plastic' for the back. Glass is too fragile and slippery. What I've heard from others is that a (high gloss) carbon or ceramic back tends to be very slippery as well.

    I own a OPx and a Op5 and feel so comfort with both textures.
    That's what getting a OP brings with, the chance to try materials that other factories don't use.
    Satisfied with glass and aluminum too.
    Would like to try carbon. Maybe my next device.

    But now my favorite is aluminum.
