Ashamed of your iPhone 6? OnePlus wants to help

Are you so ashamed of your iPhone 6 that you're scared to use it in public? Do you fear the sneers of derision from Android owners every time that Apple logo comes into view? If so, you'll be delighted to know that Chinese start-up OnePlus has you, quite literally, covered. Yes, now you can disguise your iPhone as a OnePlus with the OnePlus iPhone case.

That's right, OnePlus has just issued a limited edition series of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s cases, designed to make your iPhone 6 look like a OnePlus phone, complete with that grippy sandstone texture on the back. It's a funny idea: disguising one of the most expensive phones around as one of the most affordable, but in typical OnePlus fashion, there's a kicker.

Inside each case – which comes in a box as fancy as the case itself – is an invite to buy the OnePlus X. OnePlus X invites are already sought-after, but the one inside the OnePlus iPhone case could be a regular invite, a special invite for the OnePlus X Ceramic or even a totally free OnePlus X. If you were going to buy an iPhone 6 case anyway, that's not a bad bonus.

Every limited edition case comes with a special OnePlus invite, which could be for a OnePlus X, a OnePlus X Ceramic edition or even a completely free OnePlus X.

In our OnePlus X review, we mentioned there's a little iPhone 4s DNA in the OnePlus X and it looks as though OnePlus wants to continue that cross-germination by enticing iPhone owners to try out one of the best and most affordable Android devices of the year. We don't know whether anyone will permanently switch sides, but OnePlus makes a pretty nice case – in more ways than one.

    I have an iPhone 6 and before that I owned a OnePlus One. I traded it away because I like making poor decisions. The sandstone back on the OnePlus was the best thing ever (no joke). But alas, I traded it in to get a Space Grey (...yawn...) iPhone 6. I ponied up the extra $100 (because I'm fantastic at managing my money!) for the 64GB version since iCloud is a mess and I can't ever get it to work properly. Can you tell that it has more memory? I can *flips hair*. I get compliments on the phone all the time! People will be walking down the street, see me using my iPhone 6 and say things like 'OMG is that the iPhone 6S?!' and I'll say 'No, it's the iPhone 6!' and they'll say 'Oh, that's too bad. You know you really should upgrade. It's 3.3% faster than the last iPhone!'. Then I feel bad the rest of the day. I cue up Apple Music. If it works without crashing (Nooooope) I'll listen to 'Sad Mix 7' curated by yours truly to help me feel better about my choices. I'll get some sleep, wake up tomorrow and place my pre-order for whatever the next device is. I *won't* be caught with an old (and yet identical looking) iPhone ever again. I'll order the biggest memory with the most customizations that only Apple can provide ( and have it shipped overnight and tomorrow you'll all like me again! OR, AndroidPit, you can save me from this never-ending cycle of phone envy (#truth) and let me cover this dang thing with my once-beloved Sandstone case. Help me break the cycle and hide my shame!

    Android fan since HTC Dream days and even *I* wouldn't pick a OnePlusAnything over the iPhone.

    With the crisis in the world its very offensive spend almost 1000 euros ( yes thats the cost of it here in Portugal )on a iphone. So cover it up.

    P.S. And i love the design of the One Plus X that i want one for me ;)
