Will there be FP2 cases available in your store? Are cases from other phones
compatible with the FP2?
Though, FP2 has Gorilla Glass 3, do you recommend a display foil or is that
not necessary then?
What do recommend with the FP2? A leather case or a plastic case?
And their response was:
Yes, we will sell separate FP2 cases in our webshop. And since the Fairphone 2
has its own unique size, there won't be any cases from other manufacturers which
will fit the Fairphone 2 perfectly. I wouldn't necessarily say you would need
display foil, but of course everybody uses their phone differently, so it is up
to you whether you decide to take one or not. And since the back cover is a case
for the phone in itself, an additional one isn't necessary.
However I think I’ll get some pocket like this to protect the whole thing.
I am very happy since two years with a simple knitted case to protect FP1 from scratches (not drops) - thanks to talented family members
All 3 small scratches at the screen result from not beeing in its wool case
I am looking forward to get a similar one for my FP2, giving the old one to trustful hands of my girlfriend…
While I like the concept of a 2-in1 phone and case, I’m still worried that my shiny new FP2 will be covered in scratches and dents in no time because I always have keys and change in my pockets and I drop my phones all the time.
What I’d really love to see is a snug-fit slide cover or–better yet–a flip case from Feuerwear. They are very Fairphone in that they make bags and cases from decommissioned and upcycled fire hose. And they look cool, too. Unfortunately, none of their phone cases seem to be a really good fit for the FP2 size-wise.
Seeing that the integrated case will be exchangeable (and the camera and the screen too) I think I don’t need an external protective case. And I prefer a lot to have a phone without external, heavy and chunky case. And I think the phone itself it’s big enough
I don’t think that an external case will be necessary for me but I prefer to have screen protection foils nevertheless. Maybe I buy one that is way too large and cut it to fit the FP2 if there won’t be an “official” one (and I honestly don’t expect one to be made available).
After I got some helpful replies to my question if the Fairphone 2 would be too big for a trouser pocket, I started searching for a belt case that’s available from a Dutch webshop. I don’t mind if the orders come from abroad, but I want the interface and shipping/payment methods easily available from a Dutch perspective.
Searching for a belt case made by reusable materials didn’t yield the result I wanted, everything I found was either not the right size or didn’t have a belt clip attached to it (and I’m no DIY guy).
My search ended with some possibilities from regular webshops, 2 alas in leather and 1 in polyurethane (is polyurethane quite clean or really polluting?):
Hi! Just made a request to www.feuerwear.de with the dimensions of the new fairphone 2 asking which of their handycases would fit the FP2. Perhaps they give it a thought to make a special edition for FP2 or adapt one of their Mitches. I also asked if the belt clip can be adapted for horizontal wear, not only vertical.
Will get back to you, when I have the answer!
Actually, let me answer that for you right away:
On this page feuerwear has a casefinder if the phone you have does not appear in their list and you want to fit the size.
Looking at the specs of FP2 you can quickly figure out that Mitch 6 (39€) would be the correct case.
