It’s difficult to explain “Never Settle” to someone who sees their phone as just a phone.

We love tech and the endless possibilities that come with it. When we’re passionate about something, we might come off as – for lack of a better word – overzealous. A simple question about the Internet of Things could spark hours of conversation, and waiting for the next big product launch can avalanche more anxious feels than Christmas Day. And just like with anything else we really love, we want to share it with others. So, we have something to share with you.

Sandstone, the signature finish for our flagship line, is something people have come to equate with OnePlus. Some reviewers have even devoted entire articles to it. Take this example from TIME magazine:

“Almost every other modern smartphone has a back cover that might as well be made out of soap [sic] bar. […] But the OnePlus 2’s back cover — I’m talking about the ‘Sandstone Black’ option — feels something like a smooth sandpaper that’s grippy but also comfortable. I would have absolutely no qualms about going case-commando with this phone. It’s that good.”

There you have it. If Sandstone were a fictional character, it would probably be Jon Snow – rough, yet charming, and one-of-a-kind (and definitely not dead). Sadly, most people have yet to experience the uniqueness of this texture for themselves.

We made this because, well, it’s the holiday season. Sharing is caring. It’s not just about a case. For us and for many of you, Sandstone represents something bigger. Maybe you know someone who just went out and bought the latest iPhone. Maybe you were this close to getting them to see your side of things. This is your chance to leave your exasperation at the door and just show them what they’re missing. For $19.99, the Sandstone iPhone Case is here for you to give the gift of Never Settle. Made exclusively for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S.

    Smart move kid

  • Tom

    Any chance for 6s+ version ?

    • Peter Bergonzi

      Being techy as you are–hack it.

  • Javier Fernández Raggio

    clap clap clap! Brilliant!

  • Peter Bergonzi

    Clever and relevant.

  • ludalex

    Instead of planning these marketing stunts, why don’t you put your efforts into building a decent customer support?

    What you have right know is embarrassing and me and many other people I know had to get rid of their 1+ devices as the customer support just couldn’t deliver.

  • Andrew Stepp

    Why no 6s+ varient? I’d love to pick one of these up for my phone

  • svyatogor

    No 6(s) Plus? If you are performing a marketing stunt you could at least make it remotely useful.

  • toby tanfield

    So instead of improving the quality of the oneplus one, you make a case… for an iPhone. Seems strange.

    • Prashant Annamalai

      This is a marketing tactic bruh.

      • toby tanfield


  • John Frain

    Would it not have been better to make a sandstone case for the oneplus one?

    • Prashant Annamalai

      OnePlus One comes with a sandstone back panel. -_-

      • John Frain

        A back panel is not a case and doesn’t protect the screen

        • pvs

          Try case from Spigen. It’s awesome. I loved sandstone back, but don’t want to give up with such a nice looking protection.

          • John Frain

            I dont think they do a case for the oneplus one

          • pvs

            Hm, you’re right. Sad.

          • John Frain

            No sad is a sandstone case fore the iphone and not the opo

        • Dansolo

          I use a case called CircuitDroid on mine. Used the same one on my previous phone. It doesn’t look like much but it’s fairly soft and works pretty well. Also grips the phone well. I didn’t use a screen protector before this phone but I’ve been using RhinoShield on this one.

          I’ve dropped my phone onto tile, asphalt, cement, wood, and more and no problems.

          I suppose the case doesn’t look super classy but I’ll take that over a broken screen.

      • John Frain

        I would like to add,i have had 2 of the plastic cases and 1 of the flip cases none of witch protected my opo

    • Juli Tallar

      I totally agree

  • Kelly Newman

    OnePlus Phones are now available at a discounted price only below

  • John H

    I agree with most of the comments about taking care of your current clients before they all jump ship and buy a Nexus. Every time I get to the site it either is out of stock of an item or color of a case I want. And when will the thing support WIFI calling?

  • xtole

    I saved and waited for a 1+2 invite, gave up on OnePlus and bought an iPhone 6s Plus. Now this? No 6s plus case, and you are out of stock? I give up on you OnePlus

  • Alex Mercer Inthi

    OnePlus 2 and X not selling well?

  • pvs

    Love OnePlus for their sense of humor! Nice 😀

  • Zimou Sun

    Why it is out of stock?

  • John Hagen

    You know, I wish this would be available for all of the iPhones Apple currently sells, like the 5C, 5S, 6+, 6S+, etc. This would make a great Christmas gift.

  • Luvian Iskandar

    this is a very smart move

  • Alvinpeter

    The case holds on to the iPhone pretty strongly and make sure that your iPhone is protected from any scratches

    iPhone 6 plus Cases NT

  • I think it is a great move! Not only they are generating great cash flow selling cases to a big market which is the iPhone 6 slippery soap bar market but also selling the One Plus Two experience to iPhone users (ergonomically at least) of what it can provide for just $389

  • ThinkAdvantage

    Had the OnePlus One, I am now on the Nexus 5x, please release a Sandstone Case for the Nexus!!!

  • ronny

    Great stuff keep up the good work! visit my website to see more cases

  • I thought this was a joke until I saw the sale page myself. I run case company myself and a ‘sandstone’ feel is in no way novel or innovative. I carry the ‘sandstone’ or grainy matte finish case line for many phones, including the One Plus 2.

  • What a nice posting. We like it we also provides the mobile cases with very affordable prices. Thanks for nice posting.
