    The paint chipping issue is because of the case provided. You should keep cleaning the phone every now and then. Remove that case and get someother one.

    very cheap quality stuff from OnePlus. I faced the same thing in OnePlus 3t and now 1 month old OnePlus 5T..
    highly disappointed

    Bangladesh is not official country for selling oneplus devices. I hope you aware.
    Unfortunately they can't support. Use dbrand or skins to hide them..

    Hi.. This is Naveen from India.. I am using 1+ 5T since a month (brand new). using cover also. today I opened the case and checked at the top and bottom of the phone. I saw minor paint loss. how it could happen if it's fully covered..? or manufacturer defect??

    You wrote you are using the case provided by OnePlus inside the box. The case is what is causing your chipping as dust and other particles get inside that case because it is loose and causes chipping.

    Which color of 5T are you using? I just sold my Midnight Black and bought the Lava Red. I was using always the Karbon Bumper case. I didn't had any issues with my Midnight Black. Yesterday I got in my hands the Lava Red and I tried to use for an hour the included case but I changed back to the Karbon Bumper case. I asked the CS before, if I will have any color paint issues if I use the Bumper Karbon case on the Lava Red and they told me "We verify you that you can use it safety without any issues". So I am using now again the Karbon Bumper case after I watched your thread. Thanks for the information by the way.
