    Hi all,

    I ordered the official OnePlus Screen Protector, the Official Clear Case and the Flip Cover.

    I just wanted to give a mini-review/my thoughts on them for anyone who's interested in them (when they come back in stock)

    First off, the packaging is superb. This is expected as OnePlus never disappoints with the familiar red and white theme and the premium boxing.

    Clear Plastic Cover:
    I've been reading negative comments/reviews about the case up until this point, and kind of understand the complaints. It is exactly as advertised, it is a low profile plastic shell that will protect your phone from minor scratches, scuffs and allow you to place your phone down on the table without worrying about it getting dinged. With my previous iPhone's, HTC's, Nexus 5, 7, etc. I've always had this types of cases. I take great caution with my phones and just want something that will allow me to place the device down without worrying about the camera lens or any other part of the back to be scratched.

    So, in this sense, I think the plastic cover does it's job...almost. Within minutes of placing the case onto my phone, I gave it a quick wipe with my cotton shirt and low and behold, my cotton shirt had scratched the case somehow. I couldn't believe it and try to smudge it away and only came back with another small scratch. The material/coating on the back is extremely frail and is extremely prone to scratches. This was pretty disappointing considering it was $10.

    The biggest grip was not having that incredibly unique and excellent feel of the Sandstone backing. This case is pretty slick, and I am almost weary of it slipping out of my hand. Another downer is the bulk, although minimal, that it added to the device. I had been using my OnePlus without a case for about 2 weeks now and had really fallen in love with the feel and size of the device. The few mm's of the case made a difference, but I'm sure I'll get used to it...

    I will use this case for a few days and see how I feel about it.

    The Flip Cover:
    At first glance the flip cover looked excellent. It provided a nice feel and I liked that access to the volume buttons.

    But it pretty much stops there. It covers the notification light completely. Also, the construction of the case seems very rough and cheap. The edges all around the flap look incomplete and rushed. It looks like the edges will start peeling with immediate use. There were also some areas on the front flap that were uneven.

    For $15, I may just have to force myself to use this for a bit when I get tired of the clear case.

    As for the screen protector, I haven't even opened it or used it because I have been using a screen protector from illumishield that I ordered a few weeks back on Amazon, which has been working OK.

    Those are my thoughts on everything. Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer...

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks mate. I think i'll pass on the factory accessories. I understand this is how they plan to make money but i'll wait for accessories 2.0 for the oneplus 2

    Flip cover definitely does look sexy. It's a shame it doesn't live up to its looks.

    I got the green case, and it doesn't even fit on my OPO. The top snaps on nicely, but on the bottom, the two sides compete to embrace the phone. It's a good thing that's just an interim case until my aluminum bumpers get here! :D

    It's kind of like the bottom isn't wide enough, like, you know how the case just slightly comes around to the front of the phone and hugs it? My phone's chest get's a standard hug, but its butt gets the one-arm. XD
