...Still haven't found a local/China version of EskeRahn's dual half clip case though...

For Australia, right? Here it is.

Thanks, that certainly looks like it. All the ones I've seen up until now have had embossed designs or a metal badge in the corner.

Tempted to try that triple layer removable one I found, if not for the fact the outer case is huge compared to the P20 Pro holder. Also wondering how well the purse could be cut out from that other one I found, but then again its another magnet case which probably has a weak magnet...

For me, this one (simple case made for P20 Pro) seems to be very good.
It is not as rubberized anyway, but it clips slightly in at the top side of the lower part - so it holds perfectly.

Especially as I have a SIM adapter on the back and some rubber pads to not sit on SIM holder while it is laying on a table - that is why it seems to be uneven at its back.

However, seller sent me two types of this case (I have received two of one type and two of the other).
This type has one oval hole at back, the other has three separate ones - I like this much better as I need to cut less to be suitable for Pro1.

Sorry for the quality of photos, they were made by Moto G6 in a darker environment...

...And I just found the case type I was looking for on AliExpress, for $4.07 (cheaper than eBay, as usual).

...If only they made this version with a fold out card section like the earlier case, then removing it to add depth for the Pro1 would be a lot easier/neater.

I recall a previous forum member said they purchased this leather sleave https://www.etsy.com/listing/719311781/leather-sleeve-for-galaxy-s10-full-grain?ref=landingpage_similar_listing_top-3&frs=1 after providing the dimensions of the Pro1 but this was before they had recieved their phone.

I can't remember who it was but I would love to hear their review on the fit and quality.  It's seems a bit steep at £46 though.

(I wouldn't have been able to type this on the Pro1 keyboard as I can't figure out how to type the £ sign).

Searched a bit on aliexpress, and this is a candidate, allegedly in leather. Ordered one....

Looks alright.  See how it goes 🙂

So this is a bit of a "Huh" moment.
@david recommended this clear bumper to me.

I just got it today and put it on.

He had told me that some mods need to be done to get the buttons to align and the ports to be easy access.
I was trying to upload some pics to my PC and pried it off and stuck it on the front.
You know what?

YOU CAN TYPE THROUGH IT!
YOU CAN TOUCH THE SCREEN!

You know what?
 

I can flip open the phone - with ease - and the entire screen is protected.

Sure there is a cut out for where the camera and flash holes are, but whatever!
I have a screen protector that arrived in 2 days and cost $7.39!

I posted this idea already in another thread, and yes it works surprisingly well. Of course it needs to be for a thinner device and with no holes, but what is worse is that it would be conflicting with the lip of a shell grabbing the lower part.

I think we would need some clever stuff where one part grabs the ends, and the other the long edges.

If you do not select a design then you get the all black one. At least that's what the seller said. And it's $10.00 cheaper. Dimensions are spot for the Note 7.

Seriously, you can flip it open with the protector on top? That's amazing.

Actually, there is no interference. It makes opening and closing easier.

But currently its lower part is without a shell, right?

I meant that the lips of the the two shells will fight locking in the same "v" shaped space between the two parts.

I like how you time your melatonin. I'm guessing bedtime is 10pm 😂

That's when I totally take mine too!
