Tomorrow we are going to send a newsletter to all Fairphone 2 owners in which we inform everybody how to change the back cover of your Fairphone 2 order. But first, we want to give our forum community a sneak peek. Keep in mind, this is only for Fairphone 2 owners to update their color preference (if desired) to their current order. For potential buyers, the available colors will be on the shop tomorrow!
We have created support articles on how the process works, in English, German, French & Dutch. And now, without further ado, we give you (drumroll please):
Now, go pick your favorite and let us know what you think
I am very glad for those who craved for the blue opaque back that it is available after all.
I would have strongly preferred a white bezel though, but I guess there is a good practical reason ALL cases come with a black bezel. My guess is that practical reason is that the bezel consists of an elastic material very prone to get dirty easily.
While I for my part am not that fond of the transparent and translucent style in general, I really welcome that Fairphone is offering a TRULY transparent option and not just the halfway transparency of translucent.
Wow, this is great and I agree with @kevr1990: this is getting more difficult than I thought
Initially, I was sure to order my FP2 with an opaque back cover - and I still think that matte blue is really nice - but now I am also tempted by the really transparent one…
I’ll sleep over it and hope to be able to decide afterwards
If not, I may perhaps buy a 2nd cover - directly? I do not think I would buy one later though because it would not make sense to ship a back cover on its own.
