Earlier, the idea of a wooden material was popularised by Motorola Moto X, and then it was embraced by OnePlus for the One and by Xiaomi for the Mi 4. However, neither OnePlus nor Xiaomi have released actual devices with wooden material. Some of the popular devices in the price range include Motorola Moto G (2nd Gen.), Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG (16GB), BlackBerry Z3, HTC Desire 616, and Micromax Canvas Knight A350.
