    I now have both carbon protector and carbon bumper. Where I am afraid of the open tops and bottom (protective) I miss the easy access of the alert slider. And yes, good point: cleaning the glas under the bumper IS harder.
    Since I lay my phone faceside down I do not have the problem with the cutout of the camera, but yes, it's only a fraction of protection there.

    How is the compatibility of the official 3D tempered glass along with official carbon / Ebony / Rosewood bumper cases (not the carbon / sandstone protective case)? Is there any lifting of the edges of the tempered glass when these bumper cases are used?

    I don't use glass screen protectors, but according to this YouTube vid by Big Unbox, he says they are compatible:

    He is the only one who claims to its compatible, nobody else.

    Is it that thin? I have ordered it a few weeks ago and I can't wait to have it in my hands! However I'm a bit afraid of this problem too. Is the bump similar to the stock silicon case provided with the phone?

    I wonder if this case will scratch the edges of the phone in the long run as it feels very plasticky

    Yeah it's something I've been thinking about too. But I've been using it for most of the time since I got the 5T (Nov. 23) and I haven't found any scratches on it yet.

    if you use hard case.. it may cause scratches on the edges. that's why i changed my previous hard case with otterbox

    prolly yes. but unless you're one of those crazy people who upgrade every release cycle, the release of OnePlus6 won't matter. you'd still wanna buy protection for your phone lol.

    Absolutely. I'm still looking for the perfect case for my 3T ;) But I was more thinking from Evolutive labs point of view (the makers of Rhinoshield) I find case makers only want to produce when a phone is first released, makes sense for sales I guess

    I am looking forward to purchase the OnePlus5T Sandstone case. I also love the bumper case from OP5T with karbon fiber however my concern is, is it bulky? I am also considering the Spigen for OP5T but I dont want to have more cases! But I will consider having those to dress up my phone.

    using the rosewood case ...it's a beauty.
    great feel with brown sides ..complimenting well with the black color screen.

    Agreed, I couldn't decide which wood case looked best so I bought both. They are really nice looking, have almost the same build finish as the Karbon. The feel was a bit unusual for me to get used to at first. They are hard, but feel almost like paper rather than thick wood.
