    Which did you choose? I'm up in the air about which to get. Which would hold up the best, better resale value, etc.. Looking to get the white front with either slate gray/royal blue, or the cognac/red leather.

    I haven't ordered mine yet as I am waiting for Motorola UK to send me an email saying it is ready to order, but for me it will be a black front and for the back I do quite fancy the leather although I have never seen a phone with leather in the flesh so to speak but I liked the look of the G4 with leather and I think the Cognac is the natural/brown colour isn't it as I do like the look of that.

    I keep changing my mind. I was set on wood and now I'm swaying towards the Deep Sea Blue CSR as it is bound to be grippier and wont hold dirt as much as Leather. But its just a shame I wont be able to hold either before I buy it

    Hmmmm I am wondering about the leather getting dirty as well and I love the wood back especially the lighter colour but I have no idea how well that will wear what is the CSR is it the rubber?

    I have the white front/slate/metallic royal blue sitting in my cart right now! I have seriously considered the charcoal ash wood, bamboo, black leather and red leather, but I keep going back to the CSR backs for practicality and grip. I've also considered the Royal Blue, Black, and Deep Sea Blue CSR backs.

    CSR is coated silicone rubber. There is no extra charge for it and should provide the best grip and be the most trouble free. I do like some of the wood and leather backs but the function is more important to me so I chose 64 GB of memory. I will probably have it for 2 or 3 years max before I can't resist the latest technology.

    Coated Silicon Rubber. Its meant to be more dirt resistant and more durable. The moto dude claimed even the white CSR would stay clean and dirt free for a long time.

    How true that is ... who knows lol

    Well I plan on keeping this phone a good while so maybe the CSR would make more sense and from the pictures I have seen it does look great.

    I chose the soft grip. With each new Moto X (I have the 2013 and 2014 models) I tell myself I'll splurge and get a wood or leather back, but in the end I go with the color instead. Both my 2013 and 2014 look brand new. I do use a Cimo back cover on them, though.

    I went with the black leather only because I feel it gives it a premium look and feel. Hopefully it holds up as well as the leather on prior Motorola phones.

    Yeah them subtle lines look really nice. Will also add loads of grip. I watched one video where the reviewer said the SCR feels better than leather. Soo tempting tbh plus it works out cheaper.

    I love the black leather on my 2014 Moto X. It is in perfect condition after seven months.

    I got the cabernet CSR, I also saw that one reviewer liked the soft touch over the leather. I work in a chemistry lab though, so I'd be a little worried about the leather getting ruined.

    Right then I have just looked on Clove UK and they have the phone with the black rubber back and I know it is probably a bit predictable but I think I will go for the black with the grey strip on the back as I am sure that will wear better than wood and leather.

    I'm planning (hoping? if any good options become available) to put my XPE in a case this year, so I ordered soft touch, not leather.

    I ordered the black front, silver metallic accents, and black leather back. We'll see how it works out I guess.

    I normally put a case on my phones but as this is a big phone and the backing is rubber I am planning to just put a tempered glass screen protector on it and leave it at that.

    I'm hoping there will be a decent fitting tempered glass screen protector for this phone, since I never did find one for my 2014 Moto X that I could tolerate for long. I finally gave up. The screen has still held up fine (I'm careful with my phones) but I love me some tempered glass.

    You wont as the glass still has round edges . However ypu could buy a protecter that is about 2mm from the edge of the display which will mean no lifting.

    So I decided on the soft touch.. just in case I wanna use a case (not a big fan of them though). Another benefit is if I wanna put a skin on it.. leather wouldn't work

    It also comes with a clear bumper in the box. I'm going to do the same as you, and also try the bumper.

    There seem to be several tempered glass protectors available on Amazon.
