    I have bought my one plus 5T only 3 months back and my phone's back body is fading like it has been scratched...and the paint has come out also and dots are visible clearly....

    I have my phone's back cover on from the first day which comes free with one plus 5T.

    Can anyone suggest what could be the reason??..Any help would be appreciated...

    The reason: the included case. It's far too flimsy and loose that any loose dust or sand particles can fit in-between and wreak havoc on the paint job. Might I suggest buying another case.

    The freebie case is not good. Purchase one for better results. The only time I used the freebie one was to make sure then tempered glass screen protector got installed properly. It works really well to line everything up.

    However, you might try contacting Customer support to see what they say about it. I wouldn't expect much to come of it, but it is worth a try.

    Yes. Well kind of. Actually Its because of the Sand particles and friction. When you use Cover, the small sand particles eventually get trapped in the spaces between your case and the phone. Regular Handling of the phone generates some friction in these particles and before you know it, small 'dots' appear on the back surface. I know because I use the OP wooden case. So, It doesn't really matter if you're using a freebie case or some other (unless it's the full body silicone one which covers the device from all sides). And it's not just OP, most phones with Aluminum bodies face this issue. People who don't use any case see far less fading than people who use a case. But I think, that is a sacrifice you make for added protection.
    Now, you can't do much about it. But you can always use some cool skins.
