    I bought a green protective case and it doesn't fit, it is too tight and it keeps popping off. Now I'm afraid of dropping my phone, I want a new case but I'm afraid of ordering a new one. Anybody having the same problem?

    I bought it from OPO store it is a green hard case. I don't think I'm going to return it because as I live in Ireland and returning it back to the store in the UK will cost me about £5 on post, another £5 pounds to ship it back to Ireland, the case itself costs £7.99.

    It's a common issue. I suggest you to return it and buy third party case.

    Put in a ticket with description, order #, and pictures and they will get back to you in a week. They won't issue you a refund but will send you a new case. Keep in mind, this process is very long though. I had the same issue and put in a ticket a month ago and they said it'll still take another month for me to get the new case for a total of 2 months...:mad:

    Yea... I can see how this would work but why do I have to go through all of that (i.e., ziptie the case to a more curved shape along the short side, heat it with a hair dryer, let the case cool, remove the zipties) to get an OPO case to fit an OPO phone? In my case, the teal green OPO protective case does not snap into place on all four corners of the phone at the same time. If I snap two corners into place (i.e., top, bottom, left, or right), the opposing two corners pop out. How ridiculous is it if a phone is damaged because it slips out of its protective case?

    It is exactly what happens to me. The four corners of the green hard case won't fit it's too tight. So that's why I don't think the method above wouldn't work. I still haven't bought myself I case and I won't buy one from the Oneplus website.

    Well I feel like an idiot now, should have checked the forums. I never imagined a company would sell a case that works only for their phone and that it wouldn't fit. I'm having the same issue with the neon yellow one, it's a piece of crap. There is no way they could have tested this because it was obvious within 5 minutes of putting it on... lack of even minimal effort quality assurance on this makes me a little worried about the phone now. No issues yet though, at least.

    Yeah I never got to use the cover at all. But I've had the phone for two months now and it works flawlessly. It's definitely the best phone I've ever had, and one of the best phones of the year

    Hi!
    I ordered my Black OPO and the green protective case (already aware of the fitting problem).
    So my questions are:
    - Did Oneplus solved the problem with the case that doesn't fit the Black OPO?
    - Do they refund (as the product doesn't fit it isn't what we intended to buy in my opinion)?
    - Is there ANY beautiful AND protective case for the OPO that isn't too thick or too ugly. I've already been around this forum and amazon/ebay etc but I don't find cases that look like the official one?

    Any way if there's not i think i'll buy the flip cover even if i saw several topics showing how fragile they were.

    Hey OPO it seems you have a problem with you accesories! Please solve it!
    (i'll tell you how my case is around christmas)
