Protective Cover

To be clear: I own a Fairphone and I am satisfied… there’s just one thing I don’t understand. A new display costs nearly 100€, it’s ok… but why does a simple “fair” plastic cell phone cover cost 40 €? I’ve been thinking about it for a long time, but I can’t figure out why.

I think that summarizes it quite well

That’s all clear, but think about the complexity of a display as opposed to a plain plastic casing. The fact that “fair” is more expensive is obvious, but this disproportion, in my eyes, is not.


Don’t think about it too much, as the official Fairphone 5 protective cover doesn’t protect the phone very well anyway. If you want to buy a FP5 case, check this thread: Fairphone 5 Protective Case - needed/Alternatives?
