    Update : Oneplus service has replaced my back panel free of cost under warranrty. Please note : If you have the same issue and its just minor chipping, stop using the supplied case. you may contact service for a warranty replacement. But the replacement is subject to oneplus approval and dependent on how severe your chipping is.

    Here's the first first video in which I described the issue :

    Hello friends,

    Like everyone else i am very happy with the Oneplus 5t. it's a brilliant device in every aspect but a few days back when i took my phone out of the official gel case to clean it up. i noticed that the paint is chipping off. after asking a few more users i noticed that not everyone has thus but there are more than a few units which are chipping paint.

    I have approached Oneplus service for a warranty replacement and the response from them has been dissatisfying.

    i have made a video on this with the proof and with all the details.

    watch the pictures and please check if you have the same issue. if yes then please reply to ) this thread guys.

    thank you

    As a practice I would request everyone to copy the list of names listed above add your name to the list and put that in your posts so that as the thread grows we can have the accurate number of phones affected. Also it would be a great help if you can post a pic of your phone with the chipping area so that we can notify Oneplus about the same.

    No issues here. Using provided cover for about a month.

    It should be said that I do not carry the phone in a pair of tight pants pockets.

    Just remove the affiliate links to buy the oneplus 5 T from your channel when you are asking not to buy. And yes I am facing the similar issues for my oneplus 3T.

    Doesn't look like paint is coming off to me. Looks like just dried out water marks or something. I have been using my OP5T for about a month and no issues with chips or anything related to the back cover. Also he showed only one side and not around. Providing links to buy OP5T while saying dont buy it is strange enough already. I think he is just trying to get subscribers to his YouTube channels :D

    Hi just wondering what parts of the world do the nine mentioned in your thread come from.
    That might break down the location of the (maybe) defective batch of devices.

    i got scratches on the antenna line from day one use, and i read that the antenna lines are made up of plastic so it gets scratched easily and even in bottom antenna line there are scuffs its because of using charger

    this seems to be the age old problem, people put their phone in a case and just wipe the visible side of the phone(the screen) not realising any case for the back is not air tight.

    particles of dust/sort get in the back and daily use and a non air tight case means they run and cause marks.

    case off, wipe, case on regularly or accept the odd scratch
