    Not much else to say other than go to motomaker and see fo yo self!

    They are $100 more than any other back, they are marked as delayed shippment and only one option so far (light wood grain) - honestly I could care less, but I know others were excited for them to come out.

    Also some articles out there if you search on Google. :smokingsomb:

    I too fail to understand the interest in wood backs.

    maybe if the back was swappable like the Moto G, just for fun.

    But $100 for some wood? I have some woodworking tools in the basement :D

    I think as a style it's neat. But I generally prefer other styles, even just black.

    I'd really have to see it in person, first. After experiencing vehicle interiors which had both high and low quality wood veneer, the difference is pretty dramatic.

    Needless to say, the wood backing on the X would have to look pretty good, but I do think it's a fun and neat option. They should definitely continue with this.

    It's cool in that it's different, but I still don't understand this mainstream desire to make EVERYTHING organic. I like my technology sleek, metallic, smooth, sexy ... not organic. If I want the woods, I go camping. I made my decision on the trim level of my new car based on cheesy fake carbon fiber trim vs. cheesy fake wood grain trim.

    I certainly do not want a wood phone. But again that's just me.

    I like the idea and look of the wood backs. I would need to feel it in person to decide if it was for me, though. But certainly isn't worth a $100 premium. To me, at least.
