    As the title says, it scuffed my phone. It was a metal bumper for like 8 bucks or so, and cut into the sandstone backing. It left a mark; black plastic underneath the sandstone texture, and the sandstone is very white and can peel easily. The mark is like 1 inch long, 1mm wide. Not too big of a cut / scratch. I'm hella pissed though since I took great care of the phone, and it ended up being ****** over by a case I bought... Counter-productive... I thought the bumper case would be a good buy (though, could be just this one). Has this happened to other people? Can't be assed to take pics though lol.

    Sure, if you want to destroy the purpose of having a unique back by covering it...

    ... oh, it won't matter because they stop SwapStyle covers, so I guess it's all good :/

    I already ordered a normal case (pelosi sandstone one). As for the bumper case, I don't think I'll be buying another...

    You do get that though, I bought a Logitech case for my work iPad that has a keyboard. The Keyboard has scratched the screen. It is the risk you have to take I guess when buying a case that is not from the company that make the product. But if a big company like Logitech can get it wrong then I guess anyone can.

    that sucks....
    i bought an aluminium bumper, and when i install it, i regret it almost immediately.....
    i changed back to my Diztronic after 2 days.....
    anyway, the back cover is actually replaceable.....just search for it, you should be able to find it.....

    True. I heard the official OnePlus cases aren't any good though. The bumper case was metal, but my newer case isn't I'm hoping it won't scratch it or anything. For the screen I have a screen protector, so I'm fine with the protector getting scuffed.

    I would have no idea about their cases, but they could easily get it wrong also. Even Apple cases have had issues but by buying it from them you would have a chance to get the phone fixed free as their product is what damaged it.

    The back cover is the same as the swap style cover. Originally they were going to make them, but I'm pretty sure only a limited supply will go on sale. I don't think I'm getting it though/

    Still, I heard that the cases were bad, not that it damaged the phone (sorry, didn't specify this). Apparently they can crack easily, even from normal use / not dropping it. Fair point, for the second part.
