    I got this metal bumper case of ebay. It cost me less than 7$ including shipping. Initial impressions, the metal does not interfere with antenna reception or wifi or GPS. The soft lining inside the frame protects the oneplus sandstone finish. only disappointment is that, the back is completely exposed when laid down. I was expected the bumper to sit first.
    Anyways, the design of the phone is not spoilt because of this and I love it.

    The front makes it look cool, the back doesn't look too nice, I've ordered a similar one and it should come soon, I'll post up a pic when it arrives.

    It needs to be thicker, like the ones I got for my old phones.

    My friend uses that same bumper. I tried it out for myself. It's actually very nice and very minimalistic for those who like to retain the original look of the phone. I'd say the best bumper in its category for now. It provides enough protection, and it looks sleek at the same time.

    I did notice however that the back is still protruding out. The bumper isn't think enough to lift it off the surface. Also, because the back slightly curves downward to the edges, it creates this weird feeling gap because the bumper doesn't flow into that gap in the edge. You'd have to feel it yourself to understand. It might bother some people, some might not even notice it.

    And for the corner with the screw, I actually like how they have it go outwards a bit to not interfere with the inside lining of the case. If you look at the corner, it curves out a bit, and that's where it connects the case together, with the screws. Of course, you get a mini screwdriver with 2 extra screws to go with it as well.

    If you're looking for a minimalistic bumper that does its job, I'd go for this. Otherwise, you'll have to find a thicker one for better protection!
