    I got this one for 5T, wanted to know if this protects the same way as the in-box protection case. I didn't go for bumper case as it weighed more, hope the decision is correct?

    Don't use the case that was provided in the box as it causes paint chipping. The dirt and grime get under the case and that is what causes the chipping issue. Your better off with the Karbon Bumper case. It can protect your device from minor falls but not major falls.

    The Karbon case doesn't have any paint chipping issues. That is for sure.

    i am using carbon from the beginning I bought op5t. it has unnecessary upper cut, I had a dent there. back surface is prone to get worn and texture gets smooth, less able to provide good grip. It does cause PAINT CHIPPING, specially from side. Camera cut out is not even 0.5 mm taller to protect it. also they overcharge for it. I wish you hadn't bought it.

    yeah, I am noticing the issue with cuts , paint chipping is something I was expecting that it won't happen. may be I will have to continue rotating cases

    Paint may wear off during changing the cases only.. It's not that easy to remove carbon protective case

    Don't think too much about it if you bought it use it. If you use your phone with care nothing will happen. Just slap the case on and use it normally dont keep removing it to check about the paint chipping. Remove the case once a month and clean the back panels of your device with a cloth as dust gets accumulated due to the top and bottom open sections of the cover. I have the carbon case on my 3T and its still awesome after 1 year of use, the texture almost cannot be felt now but it still looks great

    Skin and case or the softer silicon case would be nice.. Even the default case given with phone is better I guess.

    If you want to prevent pain chipping, you must remove the case and clean the device at least once in a week.
