The official OP sandstone case is a good design and grippy, but the material they use is not durable.
2 corners on my case have large chunks missing out of them and the other corners are cracked - haven't abused it at all or dropped it.
Saw another user with the same case, same story.

So i am looking for a new case, won't be getting the same one unless i find it for cheap.

I also use the official Sandstone case. After 6 months, the material is still fine, as far as i can tell it's pristine, but it has a small crack on the top left corner indeed. Never dropped.
I'd say it's because of the way we have to install and remove the case. It hugs the phone pretty strong, so each time we install it, it applies a lot of force to the corners.
Still my favourite case though ! Thin, protective, and i love the texture.
Also use the official Flip Cover from time to time, mainly because it can hold the badge i use to get to work. The leather is pretty durable, nothing to complain about.

I used to have a DBrand wooden skin, it was pretty cool too ! But it was not perfectly installed, so removed it in the end.

Today got the Avangers edition with my red OnePlus 6. I got it second hand for like 8 euros.
Pretty nice protection but the lip is better on carbon case tho.

Have to agree with you on that - the Sandstone is my favourite too. I dropped the phone approx 3 ft onto a concrete surface, the Orzly Glass SP shattered and one corner of the case has a hairline crack now, but the phone remained fully protected.
I have had mine approx 5 months and the back still looks like new.

OnePlus Sandstone Case

I have used the official sandstone case for the last 6-7 months, it's starting to show it's age but it has done fairly well. It makes a phone a lot easier to grip compared to the very slippy glass back. But I think it's worth spending an extra £10 on something that will probably last for a lot longer.

I am using the Otterbox Commuter, I like it. It gives the phone some extra bulk but I like that. Makes it a bit easier for me to hold. Feels rugged.

    No problem. Depending on where you live though might depend on which version of Amazon is the best one to deliver to you.
    (for example., as I'm based in Europe, but I'm an English speaker, I often find that amazon UK gives me the cheapest/fastest delivery, as their warehouses are geographically closest to me). But if you're based somewhere else, I'll show you how to find the best one for you...

    The link to it in the UK is:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    But if you're based in the USA though, this is the link for exactly the same thing on the main USA version of amazon.:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    Though let me know if you're based in a different country, and I'll show you how to find them on the amazon closest to you.
    (basically, whatever version of amazon you normally go to, look at the bit after the dot just after the word amazon, and just replace that bit for the one of your country)

    For example, if you're from Australia, you would just replace the ".com" part to ".com.au", for example:
    https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    or if you were from Canada, you would just replace that part to ".ca", for example:
    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    In France you would change that to ".fr", eg:
    https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    For Germany it's ".de":
    https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    For Spain it's ".es":
    https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07D3YRYLD/&oneplus+6+case

    etc. (you get the idea)

    This works for almost anything on Amazon that exists in those countries, so is a useful technique to master.
    (also if one country is out of stock of something and another country has it, some sellers on there deliver worldwide, so is another useful way to get hold of stuff that would otherwise not have been available). Also, some countries can work out cheaper than others, so is also a great way to shop around. Takes a bit of trial and error sometimes, but it's worth it.

    Hope this helps.

    My Urban Armor Gear Plasma case arrived today and here it is. I have used UAG cases on my phones for years, so I am not the most unbiased reviewer, but let this case speak for itself.

    This is a heavy-duty milgrade case, so it adds quite a bit of bulk to the phone, as you can see in the photos with my OP nylon case for comparison. Part of this is because there is an internal gap for protective purposes – the case is not up against the phone except along certain points.

    Fit and button access is perfect.

    I am probably going to switch between this and my nylon case depending on the situation, but this is everything I expected based on previous cases. A bit pricey at $40, but you get what you pay for. I have no doubts that this won't let you down.

    (Photos were shot with my work S7 while cooking dinner – quality could be better. Sorry.)

    I'm leaning towards the orzly fusion bumper. Had it for my oneplus 5, really good grip on it plus the raised lip on the front.

    I don't think there's enough cases to choose from yet...it's probably better to use the free case that you get with the phone and then in July choose a 3rd party case.

    Yeah, theirs are really good usually. It's what I had aswell last time. I was going to go for their wallet case again (as I like having the stand for watching videos),. but then I saw they had a really cheap multipack with all of them, where they've even thrown in a whole bunch of other cool stuff like Type C cables and car chargers etc. (works out cheaper than just two cases for all that lot, so I'm bagging this before they put the prices back up)
