I think I am finally going to give in and get the OP6T. I've heard a lot of good things about 1+'s own cases and wanted to get everyone's opinion. I'm going back and forth between the Karbon and the Nylon cases. Should I go for one of those or find one on Amazon?

thanks!

I like carbon fiber so I bought the Carbon case when I bought the phone.

I got the carbon case too, but it's a little slippery for my taste. I have the nylon on order now.

I also just got the Tech 21 case from my TMO store. Which was a surprise because it's not even listed on their website. I like it.

When you get the nylon case want to report back with how you like it compared to the Karbon? I really like the look of Nylon but I feel like it is going to wear pretty fast

Will do. It should be here by 11/6.

I had the Karbon case for the 5T and really liked it - felt great and was minimal enough to not spoil the phone, but it did crack after a while and I lost a couple of corners from it. I'm not clumsy or careless, so that wasn't good enough for me.

I've been using Ornarto cases since then and they're very similar but a lot sturdier. They're also cheaper than you'd expect for a good minimal case. I currently have one on my P20 Pro, but that's mainly to stop it sliding off the sofa every 10 seconds

This is the one I ordered...

I got the nylon case today. It feels really solid, but I'm surprised that it feels a little slippery still for my taste. Still better than the Karbon case.

Which one adds more bulk? Nylon or Karbon?

They add the same amount of bulk as far as I can tell. That being said, they are rather small in comparison to the tech 21 I got.

Ya I don't want anything slippery so I guess the Karbon case is out for me. I might get the Nylon and also look at the third party options.

Did you get the green color as well? Ever since the Mate 20 pro showed the emerald green I've really enjoyed seeing that color on phones.
