kwmobile FLIP COVER case - Review

    ZazzaBronson , Aug 18, 2014 :
    So I ordered one of these for my OPO: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00LGWVGI6

    The bottom part fits well enough without any wiggle room for the mobile to become detached. Unfortunately the rest of the case is poor to say the least.

    The flap although magnetic, doesn't close on the mobile, hovering barely-open and thus keeping the screen on. The case in itself is unwieldy, making for nearly impossible two-handed operation.

    The front, although catering for the led indicator, mis-aligns making it difficult to see nonetheless.
    The material has a very poor feel to it, as it seems to be made of cardboard and cheap lather-like plastic.

    Even at the paltry price of 4-5€ this case is impossible to recommend. I will wait for OnePlus to fix their production woes and most probably order the original flipcase in a month or two's time

    Just doing my duty for my fellow geeks and OPO lovers, in order to avoid wasting money on useless stuff!

    Sorry to hear, although I wouldn't be too surprised if your case differs slightly from mine. Once you receive yours please leave your impressions, so we can actually judge whether it's the whole model which is lousy, or the one I received

    Just pry the plastic at the side with your finger nails or one of those plastic tabs they give you to apply screen protectors. Obviously be careful not to scratch the lining of the phone

    OK got my ordered kwmobile case today and I only can agree with you ZazzaBronson. Didn't expect to much considering the price it cost but even then, quality and look could be better. Lets say it makes such a beautiful phone to ugly :)

    I agree, personally I will be waiting for the original cases to improve quality wise (say a couple of months) and then get me one of those
