Just received mine via DHL this morning.
May I share these photos in our FB group?
Sure. I can email you the full resolution, too.
I like the matte finish, but I wonder how resistant it will be to rub-off. Looking forward to see the green version when it arrives.
Do you know, when the green one is available?
No idea, would like to know it myself.
Cool, I didn’t know there’s an inofficial Facebook group as well, thanks
By the way, I’ve also received mine today and it looks quite good. The only thing I dislike is that it now covers the translucent backcover of the phone, but imho protection always trumps design.
I’d like to ask whether the protective case is softer than the bumper. For me the bumper feels rather unpleasant to be honest so I’m mostly using the phone without it. But principally I’d like to protect a phone I plan to use for some time so maybe the new cases are worth a try…
The Protective Cover does indeed feel softer and smoother, at least for my fingers.
Nice… Is the size the same as the bumper?
That indeed is good news. I’m going to wait for the green one then as I’d like some color.
Yes. The size is the same. The only difference is that the back is completely covered with the case. It makes the phone feel a little heavier. And I do miss seeing the “insides” of the phone. The case does give a more complete protection of the phone. Especially if you’re using any kind of cradle to keep your phone while being on-the-go, this is a recommended case. The embossed lettering seems to be the same as the original phone cover one, so let’s hope the white plastic letters are glued in better in these new cases.
Green’s around the corner.
Hi, wasn’t here for a while so I missed the discussion about the new FP3 case and the colour vote.
Why is it so expensive? (and please Fairphone people, don’t do this stupid 39,95 € business, just call it 40 €).
Also I am quite surprised that no case in the Fairphone colour blue is available.
It wasn’t as popular, so it might come later …
Just out of interest, how many FP3 are out there? 1,700 votes surely don’t represent a majority of owners. (I have an FP3 and I missed the vote, was it announced in a newsletter?)
With any kind of decision process and with any kind of outcome there would always be somebody who would not be happy. They could have just rolled a dice for all I care.
For what it’s worth …
With a price of 40 € it’s too expensive for me anyway, am keeping the bumper lining (if that is the name).
I’d thought with the long discussions about corporate identity and the new “logo” / lettering and the Fairphone star etc. they would offer a blue one from the start. That was the only one for the FP1 I had so for me that was Fairphone.
btw / chit-chat: none of the colours are my favourite, but that’s no big deal, I find the bulky size of FP3 a bigger problem in daily usage that the colour of a case.
No, they had a black/grey one as well at € 22.99 (+ 3D-printed ones at € 18).
