Back cover woes

Hi hanngiraffe, I moved your post here so you can see what others have contributed about this issue so far.


Shouldn’t you rather use the term “In your hands change is” to conform with Yoda… :slightly_smiling_face:

Lost the “F” today as well. Decided to go “stealth mode” too and indeed it looks cooler. The brand name is on the front screen anyway if anyone asks which phone it is, so no biggy. It is a waste of money and effort on FairPhone’s side however to keep putting this shiny-white-letter design on the back cover. I hope they will find another way for the next iteration of the phone.

Perhaps it was a more environmentally-friendly way to letter the back, and/or cheaper in production.

I was a logo designer before I made a career change and here’s my humble opinion. The “Change is in your hands” stands out much better than the FAIRPHONE logo itself, I respect the simplicity of the brand, but to most people it would mean nothing, just one of the thousands of random brand names.
Plus names don’t really matter, something iPhone users need to come to terms with.

So it would make sense to get rid of the sticker logo and keep it embossed(maybe scale up a bit), then make the back cover more transparent, it seems the one of the FP2 is more transparent than that of FP3 so you get the idea.

I agree to keep the embossed logo without extra high lighting. I would however move it upwards about a cm so the visible lighter grey board circuit does not interfere with the F and the A as much.

Today I went from stealth to code red!

Yeah, I need to up my nail polish game and find a more robust way to fill the letters. It was fun though and I already am thinking about the next color scheme!!


I thought I was immune but I lost the I today. Restuck it for now.


Hey all,

I was wondering if it was possible to get new letters for the back cover of my fp3. I lost an “R” this morning!

I’ve your post here, as this is where people have been discussing options. Fairphone also appears to be replacing the covers under warranty.


I used correction fluid to fill the logo, and wiped exess fluid away with paper towels and some alcohol.


This reminds me of high school :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Well, today, after some months… one more person affected here! :sweat_smile:. My “R” was moved out of its place when I picked my FP3 up a few moments ago :slightly_frowning_face:

Letters still in place for me … will there be a badge if they last one year :slight_smile: ?


It seems the letter R is the weakest link :slight_smile:

I already removed all my letters. Looks pretty good. Might paint them in eventually.

How did you remove them? Is there a “trick”?

Simply rub them with your fingers, they will come off. Or use your phone for 3-4 months.


Can’t confirm.


Mark my words, your time will come :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
