    Yes, i understand what are you saying. Very badly managed by OnePlus.

    I am saying to buy official case because some people are saying that there is no chipping issue with those cases.

    I have to say that I have been using the free case included with the phone for 1 month, and I did not have any issue. But I will stop using this case, just in case !

    I have had my 5T since the first week of January. I began to notice the paint chipping about a month ago. Assuming it was just caused by dirt getting trapped between the phone and the case, I invested in a D Brand skin to protect and cover the phone so the chipping does not progress any further.

    I'm using a Ringke case since the day I bought my OnePlus 5T.

    Now my device is more than a month old and I didn't see any paint peeling off the back. Sorry, I forgot to take photos.

    Seems like the case included with the phone is the one causing the back paint to peel off.

    my 3t has the same problem...its because of dust scratching on the metal surface which results in white spots

    This is not due to dust. I had a dozen of smartphones before and never anything like this happened. The marks I had in the past were because I dropped it or didn't have in the case.

    Now I also got those spots... And I will try to contact OP to get it resolved. Yes, I use cover anyway, but usually I sell my phone after one year and then it does matter. Still have the plan to get 330 to 350 eur back when I sell it in 6 months to get 6t ;)
