Great review, I've seen reviews saying that the Boxwave Blackout cracks and chips after little use or removing it from the phone a couple of times, can anyone confirm this? That's the one I like the most. Thanks.

I have the nillkin case, not in your review but it has cut outs for the power and volume. Great fit even with tempered glass it still has a small gap. I couldn't say its a dime distance since I'm in the uk but even with the glass there is still a 1 mm gap. Cheap and seems OK so far.

Also have a diztronic on the way and an official OnePlus tpu. Who knows may do another mini review once they all arrive.

None of the cases included in this video are PC, they are all TPU. The nillkin case is PC. All PC cases have cutout buttons because PC doesn't flex its made for abrasion protection. I have reviewed a couple of PC cases on my channel if you want to check them out, the BoxWave minimus, the official 1+ cover, and the nillkin PC case video will be live soon.

A PC case will be much much more friendly towards screen protectors. TPU cases will be more likely to push against the sides of the glass and cause bubbles.

The Nillkin PC case is surprisingly high quality. Like, really high quality ::cough:: better than the official case ::cough::

I'm lookin forward to your review. No matter how many accessories I own I always always read and watch other reviews too. I think we have a sickness

What was your favorite case amongst all the ones you tried, regardless of material?

hmmmmm ..... man that's tough. I'll answer it without answering it. Here's my personal thought process behind this question.

1) I don't drop my phone very often. One broken phone in 10+ years and I'm comfortable replacing parts on my own phone if need be, so impact resistance isn't too important to me. This means TPU cases and combination PC/silicone/TPU type cases ( think otterbox) are more than what i need.
Plus if i did blow up a phone beyond repair, I've got more phones.
2) I prefer a slim design case. Since all i need is abrasion protection, I don't want to add too much fat to my phone.
3) I like texture. I don't want to add a case which is slippery because that defeats point #1 cause i might drop my phone

So right now I'm really liking the Nillkin snap on PC case. It's what's currently on my phone. Ask me again in a week and it might be a different case but my logic above remains the same.

Hope that helps.

Very useful information, thanks. Just wondering, have you also tried the Pelosi case? It's what I'm thinking of getting and it seems like it would really satisfy your requirements.

Actually the unique design of the OPO doesn't push the case against the screen so you're safe, I do have a TPU case(as I has to my previous Desire HD phone ..no issues)

P.S. I do have tempered glass in the OPO which is way better but still in my DHD I has matte film which was nice(there still didn't have any issues with bubbles and do mind I'm a perfectionist..)
