This week's poll is utterly, totally subjective in nature. Our question? What are your feelings about wood? Specifically, the wood that will soon be available for order on the back of your customized Moto X.

Walnut

Motorola has introduced three options - ebony, teak, and walnut, alongside the existing bamboo, bringing the total number of plant-based backplate options up to four. Real wood comes at a cost of just $25 over the standard X, which seems downright reasonable, if I do say so myself.

It looks very likely to be the case that Motorola will be charging a little extra for the wooden backs on the Moto X, and by a little, I mean in the neighborhood of $50 compared to the plastic X. Is there $50 of wood, workmanship, and assembly there to justify this premium? Of course not. It's an option that, like most "premium" add-ons for everything from cars to kitchen appliances, is there for those people willing to pay to get it.
