Protective Case Suggestions and Ideas

Recommended Posts

I ordered this handmade leather pouch from etsy on the weekend and it’s already being shipped. Seller had no problem accommodating my request for custom inside dimensions to match the posted dimensions of the Pro 1.

This looks very promising although somewhat expensive. I would be interested to know your honest review once you're able to test it with you Pro1.

I still think it would be better with something along the lines suggested here

Case sketch

 

A base case covering the lower part, and then a 'flap', that can be held behind the screen when open..

Yeah I agree with this and the flap should be magnetic so it holds to the front and back of the display.

i also kinda need to know how i will end up carrying my phone around ... now that the phone are in the box, i'm guessing the case and headphone are fully made ? Or will it ship later in order to not delay the shipping ?

This was asked a while ago during the New York event they had.

What is the state of the earphones and the case promised to pre-orderers?

Gravewell

The cases will come with preorders but they are still doing some final revisions to the case molding. They had a problem with the older designs being hard to flip out the keyboard leading to increased risk of dropping the phone.

Earphones are pretty much in limbo, I wouldnt count on them shipping with preorders.

I don't know if that still stands today due to the time between that event and now, but I'd still say at the very least the earphones will be shipped later.

If the earphones don't  ship with the phone and sent later fxtec should ask who still wnats them. I don't need any.

I hope the case will be done and shipped, because it has real value.

I agree on that, would be such a waste of money if they should send them in a separate parcel, to those of us that don't really need it anyway. The case could be nice to have though.

In other threads, there are photos of our shipments boxed up and ready to go which is awesome and very exciting stuff.  However, nobody has the time to take a pic of the final version of the phone case presumably shipping with our phones?

Looks very nice, but I'm waiting to get a phone before buying something to put it into. Apart from that, I'm still hoping to get a sideflip case as I'm used to.

you surely all saw it in the main production thead, but for the sake of completness :

no hard-case at all

a pouch instead for every pre-order (weirdly wasn't the case before)

not shipping with the phone but later down the line.

Yeah I've had a feeling for a while that was going to be ths case so I ordered this leather pouch a while ago and the seller made the inside dimensions to match the Pro1 dimensions.  It's very nice, well crafted, looks better in person, and will be sweet once it breaks in.

Does anyone know if it is possible to buy some custom rubber molding for cheap?

 fxtec_pro1_5-mobiili_fi.jpg.c2a3422ef300ac5cb599f657e54bda34.jpg

The bottom part of the phone can clearly support something like s-l300.jpg.b175294122783e91d5e7b0cba4dd9037.jpg

The screen part is more tricky, as anything protruding from beneath it may impede the opening mechanism. Could we perhaps cover the short sides of the screen by clipping something like in5511.jpg.2b2f6885909568380ad1f2c334e64d16.jpgbut obviously much thinner and better looking?

I doubt it will work, There is very little 'edge' to grab in the keyboard half, and it is basically conical...

But might work if the materiel (on the inside?) is the 'sticky' silicon used for placing phones on a car dashboard.

The top half seems even more hard to do.

But let us know if you find a way. I (and I assume many other in here) would be interested in buying that....

This is how the E7 case is.

there is another part too that goes on the sliding screen.

Looks like it relies on having a large surface to grip on the sides of the phone, which, as EskeRahn pointed out, is not at all available on the Pro1.

I'm counting on the rubber material to be elastic enough to hold will little grip.I would also prefer an open back design, in case the phone needs to cool. I am currently looking at the "universal rubber frame" that can found on the internet, but most of them have the corners bumps start inside the phone's border, which is not something that will work with the Pro1. The others are really simply a rubber band, which does not leave holes for the ports of the device, and I have no idea how difficult it is to make holes in rubber without compromising its integrity. The one I've shown above also relies on too much rubber above the phone to work with the pro1.

Maybe the answer is a magnetic case to hold it to the back of the device

Nice idea. It is a magnesium allow (If I remember right) not iron though. So would require some iron plate/points to be adhesed to the Pro1, all adding to the thickness, but could be possible.

wouldnt the magnesium interfere with the nfc specially using google pay etc?

I would take that as a good thing! 🙂  Screen side would be fine I guess?  A lot of cases are magnetic.
