    Hi, can anyone share their experience with official karbon case for Oneplus 8 pro. I want to buy one, but find opposite opinions about it. Some people talk it is very slippery and not protective at all, almost less than provided clear case. I don't like bulky cases, so i consider karbon one. In mu country there is almost none cases for 8 pro, only official and maybe some Nilkin sandstone and some no name bad clear cases.

    I use karbon case for oneplus8 and I am happy with it.

    To me also, I like lighter cases, even sandstone case (which I have) is a bit bulky compare to karbon case. OP made it little more smooth this time (few might have felt slippery but to me, it is OK) but its really nice to touch it and hold it. I liked it more than sand stone case due to being lighter and nice feeling to hold or touch back.

    Not sure about Nilkin but Spigen cases were bad as most of tempered glasses not fitting with spigen cases. OP official cases, I can use tempered glass perfectly.

    I ordered Panzer glass, find some reviews about it, and it looks like best possible glass. Expensive, but i hope it will justify price. About 30$ where i live. Ordered as backup some cheap no name glasses from Ali amd also Nilkin tempered glass. Soon as they arrived i will post my experience.

    That's great to hear. I love carbon feel, have some Latercase for previous phone and its great, but bot very protective, and I'm afraid cause of curved screen. At least some kimd of top/bottom lip is appreciated, and as i saw official karbon have it.

    I would recommend Nilkin full glue tempered glass.

    I follow it like below starting from curved glass era:
    - I keep a spare UV glue tempered glass (it will have UV glue liquid and UV light USB powered)
    - I buy full glue (nilkin mostly) tempered glass and apply it carefully. Even after enormous care, I still get bubbles at edges.
    - I use the UV glue liquid to fill the bubbles at edges and apply UV light (it comes with UV tempered glass) for 5 mins (all this is to avoid bubbles at edges)

    Instead you can go to nearest mobile shop and ask them to apply it carefully too. Curved edges became trickier to apply.

    Received case today, bit slippery, but in general feels premium in hand, smooth texture, very snug, no bulk at all. Very pleased. Will order also and sandstone to try, but Karbon feels grsat.

    Yes, Karbon case is very slim bit slippery. Sandstone is good too not so slim like karbon but not slippery. Look wise sand stone comes with colors so same color case can be purchased for better look.

    I used to use Karbon case for OnePlus 7 Pro. And i loved it. Now i'm using OnePlus 8 pro and the Karbon case is out of stock so I bought Nillkin's case which is equally good but I miss the feel of Karbon case from OnePlus.

    Less protective, i saw them at person. Better carbon quality, less protection. They are literally just covers not protective cases.

    Ordered & Received my Karbon OnePlus 8 case, looks amazing, makes me wish I never had the Glacier Green version of the OnePlus 8.

    its really slim & also very slippery case to have, but it does look the part, just make sure you get phone insurance before you decide to show it off [e]1f602[/e]

    The Karbon bumper case for the 8 Pro is garbage. I've had the same case for many other OnePlus phones, but the one for the 8 Pro is paper thin and isn't worth half of what they charge for it. I'd get a Ringke Fusion X case 👍🏻

    I use a Steelie Dash Mount. NOT the Vent Mount. Super strong, and holds the device nice and tight, and doesn't move around at all 👍🏻
