I owned a Nokia 8 a couple of years back and one of my favourite things about it was the CC-801 case - a bit like the OnePlus Sandstone case but even more minimalist with exposed sides and just a back and corner protection.
Was never able to find anything similar for my OnePlus 6 so settled on the Sandstone and was generally pretty happy with it.

However, I purchased an OP7T a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised when I came across the following on Amazon UK
OnePlus 7T Case, Ultra Slim Frosted Transparent

It arrived this afternoon and whilst it may not be quite as slim as the CC-801 or the Sandstone, I think I am going to like it a lot.
The sides are not covered but the top and the corners get decent chunky protection - much more than a Sandstone.

The black disc on the back is my own magnetic one...

Got a similar case with black edges. Feels like holding the phone naked. Btw - Where did you get your tempered glass from?

The SP is Omoton glass from Amazon UK. It is 1-2mm too wide. I complained to them and they promised to offer a smaller version in the next few days on Amazon UK.
Where did you get your case - does the back offer great grip?

Update: they have now added a newer slightly narrower version which should no longer have the halo effect.

I have ordered the newer one - and will let you know if they fixed the size issue once I receive it.
