OPO Flipcover Not Fully Closing

    Has anyone who bought any of the color variant (Blue, Orange, Yellow, White) noticed that the cover doesn't close all the way flat against the phone? I have a few of the colors (picture orange and blue) and they don't lay fully closed and leave a gap. I also have the black (thumbnail) and it doesn't do that. Wondering if there's an easy remedy?!

    Seems like OP used a thicker grade of material for the colored versions, and that made the binding a tinge stiffer. I'm thinking it might solve the issue with frequent usage. Who knows.

    Or put it out on my car dashboard on a sunny day for 1-2 hours. :) Seriously, that softens the materials and just might work. haha.

    Unless the flip case has a magnetic part on there, hardly any flip cases ever stay fully closed. Even if they did, they will wear out pretty quickly. I steer clear of flip cases without magnets.

    I had this with my Galaxy SIII, after 3-4 days of normal usage, the leather expended and it was closing entirely.
    If you want to speed the process, during the night put a light object (small book) on top of your phone with the Flip closed, it will "stretch" the material allowing it to fully close.

    Oh glad to hear that. I turn my phone over whenever I sit my phone down. That might help a little. Thanks for the tip.

    People have reported that the OEM flip case cover has a tendency to crack at the clear case.
    How long have you had yours for? And can you make sure to post back if you have any issues? thanks!

    I just started using it, but I have been pulling the phone in and out of the flipcover many times and it's holding up well. I also have the clear case (not flipcover) but it doesn't fit as snug as I would like. Will update the thread if I encounter any abnormal wear n' tear.

    Have you tried turning the phone off and on again?

    But seriously, it should break in after some use as others have said.
