    more color than just material: came across this yesterday and love the red accents. would look great on our devices.

    would work with metal, sandstone and ceramic? what do you all think?

    Also multiple colors would be great. I think Motorola nailed it with the MotoMaker. Leather and Wood backs looked awesome.

    I don't care what the material is, I don't care what colour it is. There's just two absolutely essential components:
    1) Must have texture and grip. I hate having to add a case or a skin just because some idiot designer thought that a slippery phone would look better on a shelf somewhere. Nobody is going to see your "better looking" back if everyone has to cover it up just to avoid dropping their phone every time they pick it up.
    2) Must not be fragile. The front of the phone by necessity has to be glass (well the alternative is plastic, but that scratches too easily) But there's no reason not to make the back durable. If I drop my phone, it's bad enough that I have to worry about the front breaking, I don't want to have to worry about the back breaking too.

    Currently OnePlus is one of the few manufacturers left that still maintains number 2, (though this poll makes me think they're planning to change that!) But they've already lost on number 1. Bring back textured materials! and not just a dozen phones released in a PR stunt months after the release just so you can claim you sold out in under 2 hours. As the main, and probably only, choice.

    would love to see a combination of sandstone and ceramic on the next phone.

    I cannot agree more. My wife has the OnePlus 5 with the sandstone case. I prefer to avoid having a case at all, so was sorry to see I missed the recent sandstone limited release.

    Without a case, her phone is slippery like my iPad Air, which is too dangerous on the go and with one-handed operation.

    This is the only reason I haven't purchased a OnePlus so I'm looking at other options while monitoring new information here. Fingers crossed.

    So, this survey was just OP jerking us around...
    Great job listening to your customers. Really top notch (pun intended, although at least that decision came with an actual value proposition of more screen real estate).

    the best will be " carbon fiber"
    it's light weight and very tough to break
    although the cost of production may increase but it feels good
