Hi @Jedi1337 Welcome to the forum
The main problem with cases are the positions for the buttons, usb port and speaker.
If you can adapt for that you will note that soem FP3 cases have stretched by seme few millimtres and as the FP4 is only soem 4mm larger than the FP3 you may find soemone will giev you their old FP3 case.
You may then cut out the back a bit more for the camera and the edgeds for the buttons etc.
At least it would act as a bumper for a while.
Why do you drop it?
You could get an attachment, one of those sucker things to hold between fingers when in use and have strap around your wrist etc.
Not brilliant ideas I know, but I would try something too.
Here’s an image of a stretched case, you will have to search the forum for the original user, that’s just a ref to the extent of stretching.
You will note I have added to the title. You may also like to post a request for an old FP3 case to experiment with in the MarketSearch category.
I’m happy to message the files to anyone who asks, but I think I will not be uploading them to thingiverse/etc until I have a Fairphone 4 and can check that my models do fit. They are currently untested.
Would really like to see one of these wallet cases for the FP4 but attached with an inner case something like the cases FP themselves sell. I know you could buy one of those and stick it in the wallet case but I’d prefer getting it as one piece like I have for my prior phones.
Is there any update on this? Basically a decent, tough case is the one thing preventing me from getting the FP4. I don’t mind it being chunky, but I want it to be tough (I work on site a lot lifting, shifting, driving, digging and so on so it has to be tough). I currently use a Spigen Tough Armor on my Pixel 3XL so something with similar functionality would be ideal for me (with the fold out stand which is surprisingly useful).
Spigen UK told me they don’t make one for the FP4 and wont be in the foreseeable future…
@Rosenbaer No, my fairphone 4 has not yet arrived, and I have not tried printing a case from my files yet, so at the moment the dimensions and design are still unverified and quite probably inaccurate in places.
If you want to have the files to test them out, you’re welcome to them so long as you let me know if anything needs to be changed. A set of fairphone 4 dimensions taken via calipers would be invaluable to refine the design.
@DLP no update yet as you can see above.
And I do not trust my designs to be able provide Spigen levels of protection until I can go through several iterations. But perhaps someone else with more design experience can build an excellent case sooner than me.
I would go a little bit more traditional. I would use one of the many screen protectors out there like the ones from upscreen (there is even a 9H one made by them) and then try to make something like this Tough Case mit Foto selbst gestalten | dm Foto-Paradies (it is in German but you could use auto translate ). It is made of 2 pieces, the inner silicone one and the outer plastic one. I have one for an iPhone 5 and it is not that bulky
If you want to have a stand like the cases made by Spigen have, you could go Magsafe like and either work a thin magnet or a thin iron plate into the back of the cover to use it w/ an Anker MagGo or something similar.
