    Bought from eBay, $2.66USD:

    I just received this today... took about 16 days to ship to Canada. Your basic tpu case, glossy/grippy along the sides, frosted matte finish on the back.

    I was hoping that I could still see the 1+, but only the Cyanogen shows through.

    I really wanted a soft thin case that protects from falls and raises above the screen a bit if the OPO is laying face down. The bezel around the screen isn't very high, and I don't think this case would keep the screen off a surface laying face down.

    The cutouts are ok, the back microphone hole is not centered but it isn't covered.

    There is a little bit of excess plastic around the right speaker, not a huge deal, just a general fit & finish kind of thing.

    The usb port is accessible, but the case needs to bend around most plugs.

    Cutouts for the volume rocker and power button.

    The headphone jack cutout seems a little small. I use slim plug earbuds that won't have any trouble, but some plugs might be a bit tight for that size cutout.

    Overall, a nice tpu case, but there is a bit of a sharp feeling around the border of the case, where the top part of the plastic was bonded the bottom part. I might try to take an x-acto knife to trim the excess plastic flashing off.

    Cool thanks for the review. I still prefer the TUDIA TPU Ultra Slim Red Case. Great case and fits great with fantastic cutouts all at a price of $15 on Amazon.

    Nice, how is the sides wrap around (Screen Lip) would it get scratched when you lay your phone face down.

    That's a good question. The edges wrap around the silver bezel rather than the edge of the screen, while it makes it easy to remove the case, it doesn't raise it much over the screen. I'm concerned about it not being high enough to protect the screen when laying face down or hitting face first in a drop.

    Yes, OnePlus has come a long way since the One, originally it came with no screen protector, no case. But during the later part of their sales they did include pre-applied screen protectors I believe. And I'm really glad they now include a tpu case with the 5T. It's not a bad case, either.

    Wow, this thread is a memory burn. I guess i have it in my signature but I rarely visit this forum on my computer so I never see my sig on mobile.
