Got my Official hard case :)

    Hey guys.

    I just wanted to share my opinion on the OPO hard case. I received same yesterday and I must admit that I am quite impressed with it.

    It is very thin, so much so that it really does not change the the feel in the hand (though the texture is different from the sandstone backing). There is very little increase in bulk overall.

    The case I bought was the green, which is vibrant yet cool and calming at the same time. There are some mild blue undertones to this green.

    It fits perfectly and securely and is very easy to put on. That said, Oneplus has been having some quality control issues with their cases as of late and a fair number of members have received cases that either do not fit properly or crack on their own. I may have gotten lucky, so please bear this in mind as this is a subjective review of the quality of my particular case and not all the hard cases in general.

    Moving on, the texture of the case is quite pleasant. I assumed it would feel similar to the polycarbonate backing of samsung phones. However, it is vastly superior. It has a high quality feel, similar to a Lumia or the back of the white Nexus 5. It is somewhat grippy and does not feel as though it would slip and slide. It has an almost ceramic feel to it that I am quite fond of.

    It has a minimal lip on the front and really would not offer the screen much protection if the device fell face down. However, the lip does not curl around the front of the phone enough to hinder the installation of a tempered glass screen protector.

    I have not installed my glass screen protector as yet, but I have placed it on the phone to see if the case would block it. I am pleased to confirm that the case does not.

    The gaps in the case for all ports and buttons are sufficiently large to allow easy use of same.
    Equally important, the camera is now recessed into the case which should protect it from scratches when the phone is resting on its back.

    Overall, this is a really nice case and one I would gladly recommend. Sadly, some members are still receiving defective cases, so there is a definite risk in buying one.

    What do you mean by official. This aint official. OPO did not release it. It must be a copy from OPOMART

    2 things:
    - Its not available on oneplus.net, did you get it from opp-omart (wow, that is a censored word, why?)?
    - have you used the clear case yet? If this doesn't have much of a lip around the front, how much more protection can it really give than as opposed to the clear case?

    Is it made out of plastic which will scratch easily, e.g. in your pocket with coins ?

    Nice case aesthetically pleasing ,i do wonder how effective it would be in a drop test

    I advise you to do your research before posting. This is indeed one of the hard cases released by oneplus. They offered the white, green, yellow, orange and clear variants. It may not be available in store now as they only add them when they get stock.

    As proof here is my invoice for the case ( with personal information blocked for obvious reasons).

    It does look quite nicely, is this a free one shipped with the phone? or is it a payed one?
