    OnePlus One Clear Case

    So lets talk today about this one:
    https://oneplus.net/oneplus-one-clear-case

    Packaging
    Once again oneplus got my attention here.
    slick packaging as always.

    In fact this is the first packaging that i kept.
    I am already seeing this as a problem....
    at least if my house in 6 months looks something like this
    [​IMG]

    then i will know who to blame here.
    ,,, :p back to the case :D

    Look and Feel
    [​IMG]

    Lets clear several things first as locally i got those questions more then 10 times already

    • Yep its PLASTIC
    • Yep its not fully transparent
    • NOPE it does not look cheap

    The plastic it self is in white frosted color.
    The one plus logo is fully transparent ... no frost or coloring

    [​IMG]

    Edges,camera and button cut outs are really well done.(all edges are Soft to the touch)

    The plastic it self is really high quality. Most of you will argue that no matter what plastic is plastic...
    yeah... a cat is a cat .. but we know they are all different :p
    [​IMG]


    so believe me .. i have allot of crap that by description should be a plastic case for 2 usd but in the end its something my 5 year old son will mold better with dirt and rocks from outside.

    The case is really nice to the touch and the plastic its not easily breakable.

    After all that... abuse ... it returns back to normal without any deformations.

    A friend of mine said that i am crazy to write a positive review about this case... a piece of plastic that you can get for 1-2usd from elsewhere but its clear that oneplus invested high quality materials in the making here.

    INSTALLATION

    Again impressive
    it fits perfectly.
    The phone slides in to the case so smooth..

    almost as perfect as
    [​IMG]


    Once installed the case is there to stay.
    Does not get off easily from an accident .. but in the same time if you like you can remove it
    quite easy. Not like the Tudia case for example.

    The case looks really good on the phone it self
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    The buttons are easily accessible with a nice cut.
    [​IMG]


    Again the feel its really good considering that its a plastic case.
    Slippery but not as much(More steady grip) as the Tudia case for the One.

    PROTECTION
    NONE .. well almost non existent ...

    The case is thin and it raps around the sides and back of the phone.
    So you are good against scratches and other daily objects like spare change, keys, your 9mm or just putting it on tables and surfaces.

    The case will protect the camera when put on a surface
    but forget about ANY screen protection.

    the edges are a mm more than the display it self.
    If you have a glass screen protector then ... well...

    you are f**ed...
    [​IMG]

    the glass is the same height and even a 0.00003mm higher than the edges of the case.
    so putting it face down on the table in an attempt to hide the caller from your wife then.. you are exposing that screen protector to a direct surface...
    but dont worry she probably knows* already that you are cheating on her so dont rub that screen on the table ;)
    *they all know but keep quiet and wait for the perfect moment to strike

    BUT .... when you think about it...
    you got that glass screen protector just for that ?!
    ...right ?

    or if it will make you feel better and sleep at night
    then get a screen protector for your screen protector
    and just to be safe put another one on top.
    a glass screen within a screen on a screen.
    [​IMG]
    :D:D:D

    So

    overall

    the Case looks great
    [​IMG]


    it feels good.

    [​IMG]


    the difference when compared to others is huge
    [​IMG]


    But it offers basic protection.
    if you are ok with that then we have a winner.


    everyone have its own taste and needs for a case.
    If you work in an office or another place that extreme protection is not needed
    i would definitely go with this case.

    its a balanced mix between basic protection, good looks and slim phone.


    If you need a better protection then look at this monstrosity here!


    If you need more then get this one:

    [​IMG]

    it comes with this weird dude next to it(as a bonus).
    but hey its a bonus so dont complain :D

    Protection
    2/10

    Look and feel
    8/10
    again.. its really good .. but still .. its plastic ... :(

    Overall
    7 / 10 rating for this one.
    (if you are like me and dont plan to participate in a world war 3 with your phone)

    Which screen protector/glass do you either recommend or use with this case?

    I have 2 of these cases, but my 73c gel cases give better protection because they are a bit more than 0.00003mm higher than the edges of the case.

    lol
    finally someone to notice the 0.00003mm:p

    the truth is that no glass screen protector will cut it here.
    the case is not designed to provide those high edges infront of the screen.
    (and thats something i like in the design)

    As glass protectors... For the one plus i have the original, orzly and a no name 9h china bla bla brand.
    none of them will go lower the front edges of that case.

    Maybe getting a PET screen protector will fit.
    but thats not even a protector... i consider those protectors more dull and stupid than the anti-radiation phone patches scam that still exists present days.

    As for a glass from other brands i think cygnet might actually pull it off if they make a screen protector for the one. Theirs for the galaxy s5 i extremely thin.
