    I bought bought this case ali-e and received it a few days ago.

    The material quality is pretty good. It feels nice in the hand, and the cutouts are in the right places. And it also looks nice and simple.

    BUT! There is one huge design flaw! This case features a magnet to wake the screen, which is the reason why I bought this case. The magnet is so strong that it interacts with the sensor from the backside of the phone when the case is flipped fully open. At first I was thinking that there is something wrong with my OPO, as the screen did not stay open. I was double tapping like crazy and the screen wouldn't stay open. Then I noticed that I had the cas folded fully open, like I usually like to do when keeping the phone in one hand, and the magnet was triggering the sensor from the other side.

    Now I'm quite pissed. I would not recommend this case to anyone…



    Does this happen with original OnePlus flip cover?

    I read that this happened to someone else but I don't remember if it was with the original flip case

    I have flipcover and no problem you describe. I bought in the OPO store.
    However, despite careful handling, in the lower left corner of flipcover crack appeared.
    IMO wrong polymer blend ;/

    I think it depends on the sensor sensibility too that may differ by device

    That's what I was thinking also… I wonder if it can be adjusted

    I have seen this problem on various phones with various cases, I therefore don't reckoned this type of case. :)

    I have a MoFi pu leather flip case (£5.22 eBay) . I didn't even realise it would have a magnetic screen wake facility. Was a pleasant surprise! It doesn't do this when it's folded back.
