    the issue is common. when using covers nd case.
    if there is some dust btw ur back panel nd cover..when phone heats up . .. during charging nd using game... .
    as dust has some particles which have hardness >10.
    these cause spot on back panel.

    u can visit service centre they are the only one ..who can change back panel for free in warranty.(if they understand that ur issue is serious)
    remember spots on back panel are not covered in warranty ..these are cosmetic damage

    hello everyone, I would like to ask if you had similar experiences with this model as me.

    I've noticed the dots on the back panel of the phone. The phone was protected by the original oneplus case. The company said that this would have caused by dust on the sili one case...

    Another thing, yesterday I put my phone face Down on the white piece od paper, meaby I accidentally moved it a bit but three was not much strength in it... now in the middle of the display I have about 2 mm scratch.

    And now... the phone gets dots from the dust, and gorilla glass gets scratched becouse he was moved over a white piece od paper... THE PRICE OF THE DEVICE IS 500 EUROS.Previously I had much cheaper leeco x900 and there were no such stories there. What do you think about it

    a phone is a tool. it is meant to be used. when you use things, they tend to wear.

    Do you have the original screen protector? It gets easily scratched. You shouldn't lay your phone on top of rocks. Gorilla glass doesn't scratch easily.

    original case, phone was face Down on the desk and pieces of paper. that's why I'm asking. I thought that Gorilla Glass will be stronger

    Brother it's a well known issue which most of the users faced. 'The paint chipping issue'. You may have a lot of black colored dots on the back of your 5t, even there can be certain line marks too. Since you have got the back of your phone all covered up with these marks, the only thing that you can do now is to take your phone to the nearest service center. And since your phone is covered under warranty the chances are that you will get the back panel replaced free of cost.
    But wait!!
    When you have got the new shining back panel you should do certain things so as to avoid facing the same situation again.
    1. First thing you should do after replacing the back panel with the new one is to throw away the case provided, it will only make things worse.
    2. Secondly, you should digest the fact that no matter how good the quality of the case you are going to use, those marks would return. ( in my case it did and even the service center staff said so)
    Basically those are marks created as a result of dust between your case and back panel. So, if you use a case there are chances for the marks to return, and if you don't you leave your phone at risk.
    So what you could do is to try to avoid the possibility of dust accumulation between the case and back panel,
    1. You should remove any cases while charging your phone, as charging heats up the phones surface, it will be more vulnerable to the marks with case on.
    2. Remove your case and clean the case and back panel, preferably using micro fiber cloth, once in a while.
    Last but not least,
    I also had the issue and got my back panel replaced. I used to clean my back panel taking of the case once in a day. But guess what, within one week the spots started appearing again. Later i read in the forum, to remove the case while charging and followed the same, which helped me in avoiding further paint chipping
