OnePlus 5T Karbon bumper case review

    The Karbon case really isn't bulky at all, I think it's a great balance between protective and slim.

    I always go a bit crazy with case buying because I'm always looking for the perfect case for my phone. But with the 5T I was afraid there wasn't going to be many cases so I went a bit more crazy with the case buying. I've got a bunch of cases now. And this was the first phone i decided to try expensive cases like the Karbon & wood cases. In the past I've avoided $40.00 cases but this time i wanted to see if they were worth it. I still think $40.00 is a lot for a case but I'm pleasantly surprised by the fit & finish of the OnePlus Evutec cases.

    I don't think 5T owners have to spend the big bucks to get a decent case but they are definitely nice.

    I contacted Otter Box and they say there's no plan to make a case for the 5T due to poor sales of the case for the 5.

    Just FYI everybody the phone comes with a silicone case that is totally fine and also with a protective film on the glass which is perfect. They don't make this clear at checkout and make it seem like you have to buy a case. When I wanted to return the case I bought they told me there was an admin charge of over 6euros. You really don't need to buy a case unless you want something specific.

    I think the inside texture are different from the outside texture (the inside are oil / smudge free than the outside). Am I right?

    They have different textures, the outside is rubbery, matte, soft touch. The inside is glossy & hard feeling. It doesn't pick up oils as much but most people won't be touching the inside of the case ;)

    I thought so. That's the reason why I'm not buying the carbon bumper..

    I don't quite follow... You want the outside texture to be like the inside, or the inside to be like the outside?

    I want the outside texture like the inside texture.. So my oily fingerprints won't show

    I use an Oneplus tempered glass in combination with a carbon bumper case. Fits perfectly and the case does not push the glass.

    I disagree with some of the points you made. You mentioned that the camera bump gets a slight raise by the lip however it clearly is level with the lip. when you put the phone down camera side on surface the camera hits the table with a distinct glass sound. Additionally I had no issues with the edges of the case for my fingers but that's just me.

    I said "very slightly above it". And I think the photos speak for themselves. But you're certainly entitled to your opinion :)

    this case scratches very easily and leaves light grey spots
    very annoying considering it's price
