    But not all, apparently
    If it was on all it would be a design feature :)

    Really glad I saw this now. I'm still using the case that came in the box. Immediately wiped all the dust and dirt away.

    This reminds me the marks my girlfriend used to have on her. Iphone when dirt would get in the case it was pretty bad.

    Sure it's a fault. It's their own fault. They have to be more careful with their devices.

    I just checked mine and there's no dots and I've had my case on since the day I received the phone. Also on the inside of my case there are no raised dots that could even cause that issue.

    There is minute dotted pattern.
    But I think provided give a cushioning effect.
    So not much chance of damage made through those dots.

    Update : Oneplus service has replaced my back panel free of cost under warranrty. Please note : If you have the same issue and its just minor chipping, stop using the supplied case. you may contact service for a warranty replacement. But the replacement is subject to oneplus approval and dependent on how severe your chipping is.

    Here's the first first video in which I described the issue :

    Hello friends,

    Like everyone else i am very happy with the Oneplus 5t. it's a brilliant device in every aspect but a few days back when i took my phone out of the official gel case to clean it up. i noticed that the paint is chipping off. after asking a few more users i noticed that not everyone has thus but there are more than a few units which are chipping paint.

    I have approached Oneplus service for a warranty replacement and the response from them has been dissatisfying.

    i have made a video on this with the proof and with all the details.

    watch the pictures and please check if you have the same issue. if yes then please reply to ) this thread guys.

    thank you

    As a practice I would request everyone to copy the list of names listed above add your name to the list and put that in your posts so that as the thread grows we can have the accurate number of phones affected. Also it would be a great help if you can post a pic of your phone with the chipping area so that we can notify Oneplus about the same.
