    Well the Case is getting worse by the day... but some
    consolation ... Through an RMA, OPO will be sending a replacement.

    Response from OPO:
    To which I have asked to send from a new batch as the old ones seem to be not made to quality.

    Lets see what I receive.

    Keep us updated. It's good to know that 1+ is standing by their cases at least.

    Clear Case in and in use. Looks not bad. Plastic sturdy. Does make the grip a little slick. Like the case-less feel better. So that's something I'm pondering now. Feel vs protection.

    I'm curious as to how the case will hold up after you use it for a while, and repeated re-seatings.

    Does the case have a slightly raised bumper along the full front of the phone? That's pretty much a must in a case for me...but with my luck I'll likely drop it screen down onto a jagged pointing rock jutting out of soft mud or something.

    That clarifies things a bit then, but $54 CAD is still a bit much haha.

    Bought the [1+] Flip Cover Case and [1+] Screen Protector.

    [1+] Flip Cover Case, 8/10.

    - Warning: MINOR CRACKS occur at the slightest bend;
    in my case I wanted to see if it was a snug fit before I bothered to keep it and demand a refund, but taking it out was scary and resulted in a top corner crack. Integrity of the case is probably still fine as long as I don't drop it on that same corner.

    + Magnetic cover = auto On/off = Yay. I'm actually truly really happy about this, but you can't see it via the internets.

    - Magnetic cover covers indication light
    **** 1+ Designers: A) please just make the speaker hole longer to show the indication light, no need for a second hole. B) ...That's what he said.

    + I can feel the buttons through the case enough so it doesn't block them.
    - Case makes buttons not feel as natural, and may seem to need a bit more effort to press.

    + Allthewhile, I suppose this is good design to have less crevices getting weird dustgunkfur out.

    + I honestly wanted the backing for the white and not the weird texture of the sandstone black, but this is a good compromise to cover it.
    + Tough material, no stupid scratches from things like keys and pens in my pockets

    [1+] Screen Protector 9/10

    + Covers about 98% of the screen, makes room for off-angled placement
    - Very small instructions, magnifying glass not included to read directions.
    + Very good implementing design, packaging is definitely unnecessary but keeps everything neat and organized.
    + Testing styluses to see what would work on the screen protector; did well withstanding a couple 'sharper' points.

    Nicely done. One of the most detailed comment reviews I've seen on the 1+ flip case.
    Thank you for taking the time to post this.

    I think you're generous with your ratings though =).

    I've seen about a dozen people chime in on the 1+ flip case, good design, low durability materials.

    The 1 other flip case review off of eBay was panned. I haven't seen any other suggestions yet. Let me know if you find one you like. I'm not a fan of flip cases, but then again maybe I haven't found a good one yet =).

    I brought the flip case but am not too happy with it. I though it was supposed to latch in someway so that would sit flush with the screen when closed. Mine does not and thus when I try to close it, it then opens up again causing the screen to turn on. Does anyone have any recommendations for a leather flip case which will actually stay closed?

    Put in a RMA request.

    If you can't be bothered with that for whatever reason, try keeping it in your pocket closed. Another poster commented that he did that for a few days and the phone 'shaped' to his phone and closed properly after that.

    Obviously a front pocket, please don't put the phone in your back pocket and have a sit down.

    Does anyone know if a micro USB speaker dock would be able to charge and play music for the OPO? For example, would this be a good purchase?

    Edit: I just realized that speaker is Bluetooth. I may end up buying that dock. But in concept, could audio be played through micro USB or is that not possible?

    I don't know about the one you linked, but one thing to watch out for is which way the micro USB plug faces. I have a bluetooth speaker with a micro USB plug that I would charge my Galaxy S4 on every night, but when I got my OPO I found the plug is facing the opposite way, so the phone sits on it backwards.

    Problem is, I've never seen a speaker description that says which way the plug faces, so I don't know if you'd know until you bought it. Just something to keep in mind.
