    same issue. pretty poor stuff by OnePlus.

    I'm not going to take pains and ask OnePlus to replace the back as it's minor chipping untill now. Having said that, expect much better quality for the cost I have paid.

    The quality for me is good. Te problem is the included case. Stop using It and you will not have more problems.

    with such a slippery surface to grip, how can we not use a case to protect the phone?, why should 1+ sell a defective case with it's phone

    I just ordered an new back case from amazon.in, can't let an 30k+ phone look like an 3k phone. Hoping the new one saves my hard earned money

    Lots of users failed to understand that the chipping issue was not the 5T fault. The provided case has a dotted texture inside. That was the main culprit.

    I have my 5T since January. Stll no paint chipping. Why? because I rarely use the provided case. I always use some other cases. Right now I am using Ringke Fusion and Cocose case.

    if case is the only issue, then who had provided the case, was it not One plus 5T?. It's good that you don't have the chipping issue, but the paint chipping is not just in the back where the cover has got dotted texture, it's in the sides of the phone as well. Anyways, have bought a new case, got to use it for some days and see if it's really the case issue

    OnePlus provided the case. The case. The 5T the device itself is not the problem. You were not updated and not reading enough info about it that's why you didn't know. So just don't use it. Or if you want, just throw it away. it's free anyway.

    And yes, I have evaded this problem before I bought it. I still use the provided case sometimes. But I always make sure to remove and clean the case and the phone atleast every 3days. That way the dust and moist that would build up inside tha case on top of the dotted texture wont harm the anodized finish of the 5T.

    here come the fans, even if your one plus provides a phone with a back case which already.has spots in it, these guys will say you haven't been wiping your phone regularly. If so many users have got issue with the case which is provided, these guys will say you aren't cleaning it properly. Great replies, throw it and buy a new one, anyways it was given for free by one plus

    if you are providing something for free when you buy a 32k + phone, it doesn't mean that you can provide a defective product which will create paint chipping issue eventually. I have used other phones as well, in which I had back cases applied, but never I had problem of paint chipping.

    OnePlus is very good at pretending to be a customer centric company. Regretting buying OnePlus 5T because of this 'paint chipping' issue and awful low light photography- the oil paint effect. Front camera is highly dissatisfying. They hyped the camera like anything before the launch of the phone. They are misleading customer by paid YouTube rewiews. You need be really dumb to not understand why no reviewer mentioned this oil painting thing in their reviews of OnePlus 5T.
