I ordered a case for my Librem 5 from fitBag. This has now arrived and some wanted to know whether it was good or not. I made another video and some photos And yes, the case is great.
I used to use the BlackBerry “pouch” cases all the time (and the Snugg brand ones for iPhones), I prefer leather for these style cases but this looks nice - thanks for the video, havent checked out this brand before.
Does the Librem fit well in your cases? Do you have any photos for us?
I apologize, I don’t have a Librem 5 but was just speaking about my past phone cases from other devices.
Looking at them though I don’t think I have any that would fit the thickness of the Librem 5.
for what its worth the cheap option i use is a sports sock
Personally, I would prefer something like this:
It is sized for a Galaxy A12, which is 164 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm. The Librem 5 is 153 x 75 x 15.5 mm. I do not expect it to fit. I wonder what kind of sales or order volume a manufacturer of this type of product requires to make a case like this. They make it cheap for mass market items. I wonder if they are willing to bump the price up to make it work with a smaller market.
Just careful, I put the L5 in a padded pouch, and as it can emit quite a bit of heat even while idle, it got quite warm in that pouch.
@matt2 For some time I dealt with the development of “things” in Asia. Given the amount of smartphones, that’s a financial risk - I wouldn’t want to do it now.
Yeah, I wonder if good cases will have to wait until the Librem 5 can be ordered from stock.
So… you put this in your purse? Doesn’t look like it fits in my shirt pocket. Can you litter me know where you keep it?
I mainly carry it in the inside pocket of my jacket, but on warmer days, we’ve even had days like that, in my jeans pocket. The phone is really big …
Maybe they’ll get around to freeing up the screen, ports, and buttons someday.
Note that they don’t specifically mention “Evergreen.”
I asked the seller if the sleeve is made for Evergreen:
I also added this to the list of L5 accessories. Hopefully someone will buy it and give us feedback on it.
It’s the same brand that @execrable bought (see top of thread), but this leather one is from the seller’s Amazon storefront.
(Poor little lambs… )
You can also add this one to the list
Cool. thanks for the pictures !!
How is the Librem 5 held/fixed in the case?
Besides the fitBag sleeves, there are also (on Amazon) a few screen protectors from Celicious that specifically mention Evergreen.
A few other accessories are listed on Amazon as well, but it’s unclear if they were actually designed for the Librem 5 or are just the result of some algorithm inserting “Librem 5” into the marketing info:
There is this statement on the linked BigBen’s product page:
“Its ultra-resistant adhesive will keep your mobile safe.”
This brand on Amazon looks like it might be similar: https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Leather-Universal-Protect-Compatible/dp/B0919VY6VT/ref=sr_1_24?dchild=1&keywords=universal+case&qid=1620061347&s=wireless&sr=1-24
any feedback about the fitbag sleeves regarding the librem 5 and it’s “natural” heat ?
I should receive my L5 this week and was about to order a leather sleeve but I’m wondering if it’s a good idea actually.
