Here's OnePlus' cheeky iPhone 6/6s case in the flesh (hands-on)
So here's the news: Viral phone maker OnePlus, in a surprising move, yesterday released a dedicated protective case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Yes, you read that right, an Android maker is selling a dedicated iPhone case on its own site.
Coming on the heels of what is now a rather long history of PR stunts, this move is no different and is obviously intended to raise the profile of OnePlus helped by a healthy dose of controversy. Whatever the motive, the so-called OnePlus Sandstone Case features — you guessed it — the company's now signature sandstone-like exterior, and so is quite grippy, but also rather rough in comparison with last year's iteration available with the OnePlus One.
OnePlus X. To add some excitement to the process, OnePlus promises that a few of these will also give lucky folk the opportunity to get one of the limited edition Ceramic OnePlus X's, while others still might get a free (standard) unit altogether. Sadly, ours was just a normal invite.In typical OnePlus style, the $19.99 case comes packed in a bespoke (for an accessory), black carton box that also contains a plastic scratch card with an invite to purchase the $249.99 (US) / €269 (EU)
Unwilling to settle for just renders and curious to see how the case looks in the flesh? Here are some hands-on photos to help you decide:
