A while back I bought a Diztronic case from OneStepAhead at XDA. This case quickly became my favorite case. The case can be found here:

Diztronic TPU Case- Notification List

The look and fit is perfect, and it provides some of the best protection that can be found right now. The only thing that I was missing was the textured sandstone back that I love so much on the Oneplus. I wanted this texture not only for the look and feel but for the grip. The case tends to slide out of my hands easily. I also own the Pelosi sandstone case, but I feel the Diztronic provides better coverage. While browsing the forums, I found the Stickerboy thread here:

Sticker Boy Skin Review

I decided to try to apply a stickerboy skin to the back of my Diztronic found here:

I bought the matte black found here:

*Note: I bought the Type 2 back panel only.

Other skin sources:
http://www.cruzerlite.com/skins/oneplus-one
https://dbrand.com/shop/oneplus-one

Here are the results:

Pros:
- Fit is almost perfect. The rear camera/mic/headphone jack cutouts are just slightly off. Edit: Fixed with hairdryer
- Definitely improves grip. Edit: After using it for a day, I feel that I need something "grippier"
- Adheres well.
- Looks great, I love having the 1+ on the back.
- Feels like a little added protection.

Cons:
- There is a slight ridge around the edge of the sticker that you can feel with your fingers.
- The rear camera, mic port, and the headphone jack all have slight overlaps where the small portions of the back part of the sticker are exposed.(See pics). Edit: fixed with hairdryer.
- I get a bit of lint on the edge of the skin. Wipes off easily.
- Texture is not sandstone grit like the back of the OPO. It feels more like a textured vinyl.
- Need more grip.

Tip:
-Use a hair dryer to form the skin around the camera/mic openings. Credits rodger-sp at XDA

After I installed the Skin I used a hair dryer to heat the skin so I could bend it around the camera opening.
For the mic. opining after heating the skin I used a very small pair of tweezers with a sharp point to increase the mic. opining. I inserted the tweezers slowly wile twisting them.
Summary:
The jury is still out on how well this will work and stand up to every day use. I just applied the skin yesterday so we shall see. Overall I am very happy with how the project turned out. I am going to use a red paint pen to accent the 1+ logo on the back. In retrospect I would have considered a different colored skin to accomplish that. I may purchase another Diztronic/Stickerboy combo to get a little variety.:)
