I was quite happy to see the Design-a-Day winter edition happening… but…
Am I the only one who’s a little disappointed that basically, it’s the same case all over again, with different back pattern?
A friend of mine owns one I got one of the nice blue ones which says it is my case. So I’ve got a comparison, and I’d say my case wins. Like it. Helped my phone to survive my occasional clumsiness. Looks good. Is partly flexible. Has a hole in the back to rest my finger in, and to push the phone out of the case if necessary. Says ‘This is your case’. (Did I mention this already?) On the other hand, the 3D printed case already broke. The plastic was to rigid, the fit to tight, so a part broke off when the phone needed to be removed out of the case. It looks partly rough. It’s even larger than my case. It does not say ‘my case’, but it has a nice bicycle.
However, that aside: Shouldn’t the general design of the case be the point, not just colour and pattern? I saw some nice 3D printed designs on the web, a simple image search shows up tons of brilliant and quite exiting designs. Also, docking stations, stands, VR-headsets to put your phone in. There must be something more than putting a pattern or text on the back in there for the FP, surely?
