    It didn't look so bad online, but in person, wow is it ugly and cheap looking. And I bet it won't wear well, either. I am definitely going to look into changing the backing on my phone.

    I think its fine, but if you're unhappy with it that's no one's fault but your own. Do you always buy something without first seeing it?

    And it's slick too. I ordered a Navy blue back from eBay and replaced mine. Now it looks more like a MM one instead.

    are you worried about warranty? what will you do, put it back if you need warranty service?

    Thats the beauty of customization. You can get exactly what you want. I don't think any other phone has more options than the X. I actually like the white back of my Dev. Ed.

    [inappropriate content deleted by moderator] The Dev Eds are not in the stores for you to see and if you want to unlock your bootloader AND have a warranty, you have no choice but the ugly, cheap looking woven white back.

    Nah, not really worried. But like you said, if I need to use it I'll just put the old back on. Wasn't really too hard to change.

    you can't customize the Dev Eds and you can't unlock the bootloader AND keep your warranty if you buy a customized moto x from motorola.

    You might not be able to customize them with moto maker but you can change the back cover yourself to whatever color. Quit bitchin' and buy a new back. Simple as that!

    I'm on Verizon but I went to the local AT&T store to check out moto maker options before it was even available @ Verizon. AT&T had a great display where you could touch and see every back plate. They also had black and white standard models on display. It was there I was able to see that I didn't care for the feel or look of the white woven back (which surprised me.) I ruled out a Dev edition then (especially @ $650 at the time and I was only really interested in the 32gb.)

    That's what I will be doing as soon as I thoroughly test my device to make sure it is fully functional.

    good to know. I am on verizon, too and didn't think of going to ATT. I just assumed they would have the same display.

    Glad to know it's easy enough to do! Even if I don't want to change colors, it's nice to know I could change a damaged/discolored backplate.

    Two days after I got my Rezound, I dropped it and the only damage was a little crack in the back plate. It was nice just buying one for $10 to make my phone look brand new again!

    Looks like I'm alone. I ended up liking the white back of the dev edition more than I thought I would.

    Check out iFixit's post on the Moto X if you're uncertain on how to do it, they did a pretty good breakdown
    Hope this helps!

    I don't HATE the DE back.....but I don't particularly like it either. Looking At the photos online I assumed the the woven back was textured, I'm kinda disappointed it isn't.

    I think that is a big part of my dislike, too. It is so chintzy looking - a stamped on woven pattern instead of a textured woven back.

    Nope your not alone. It's not ugly to me at all. In fact my wife liked it and she is pretty critical of the way her phone looks. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. I figured I would cover it with a case either way. Turns out I like it and I bought a case with a clear back and blue trim. I've had a few compliments on it.

    Nevermind. Just saw the previous post.

    The woven white back is the same back that all the white non-Moto Maker versions have. You could have seen and felt it and pretty much any carrier store.

    they only had a black moto x on display at my store along with the display having the limited number of colored backs.
